DJ Wayne Smooth was excellent and managed to keep us all on the dancefloor the whole night! He took our briefing really well and played the type of music we knew would get everyone on their feet, he also took people's requests and included as many as possible throughout the evening. Overall great DJ, great setup and a friendly, nice guy to organise everything with! I would highly recommend!

DJ Wayne is amazing! He did a smashing and very much appreciated job at our 9 September wedding @ Wadhurst Castle, on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year. He tuned in to the vibes on the day, being receptive to the unique needs of ourselves and our guests. Moreover, he is a really lovely person and he was approachable in our pre-wedding calls, making us feel reassured and calm in the final days. We highly recommend (10/10) Wayne to others !!   All the best, Robin
