    1. Expertise and Experience in Wedding DJ and MC Services

    In your quest for the perfect professionals, consider their expertise and experience. Seasoned wedding DJs and MCs with a proven track record may command higher fees, but their ability to navigate diverse scenarios and adapt to unexpected situations can significantly enhance your wedding entertainment experience.

    2. Customisation and Personalisation in Wedding Entertainment

    Prioritise professionals who tailor their services to match your unique vision. Wedding DJs and MCs who invest time in understanding your preferences, incorporate personal touches, and create a customised experience may come at a higher cost, but the result is a celebration that reflects your style and resonates with you and your guests on a deeper level.

    3. Quality of Equipment for Wedding Music and Announcements

    Evaluate the quality of equipment used by Wedding DJs and MCs, as it directly impacts their pricing. High-end sound systems, lighting setups, and backup equipment contribute to a flawless performance. Investing in top-notch equipment not only ensures a memorable auditory and visual experience but also reflects the professionalism and commitment of the DJ and MC to delivering a high-quality service.

    4. Additional Services and Skills for Wedding Coordination

    Explore professionals who offer additional services beyond music and announcements. Wedding DJs and MCs who excel in coordinating the timeline, managing the flow of events, and providing entertainment beyond music may come with a higher price tag. These additional skills will contribute significantly to the overall value they bring to your wedding.

    5. Pre-event Preparation for Wedding Day Success

    Recognise the importance of pre-event preparation. Professionals who invest more time in meetings, venue visits, and coordination with other vendors may charge higher fees. However, this thorough preparation ensures every detail is meticulously planned, contributing to a smooth and stress-free wedding day.

    6. Reputation and Reviews in the Wedding Industry

    Prioritise Wedding MCs and DJs with a stellar reputation and positive reviews from previous clients. While reputable professionals may command higher fees, their reliability, professionalism, and ability to create unforgettable experiences provide a level of assurance that is invaluable on your special day.

    Conclusion: Beyond Wedding MC and DJ Fees

    While budget considerations are crucial, this article emphasises the multifaceted nature of the services provided by Wedding DJs and MCs. Instead of solely focusing on costs, consider factors such as expertise, customisation, equipment quality, additional services, pre-event preparation, and reputation. By weighing up these elements, you ensure that the professionals you choose not only fit your budget but also exceed expectations, contributing to a wedding day that is truly extraordinary. Remember, the value they bring extends far beyond the initial price tag.

  • Wedding Reception | 24 September 2016 | Kasey & Ben | Silos Estate & Restaurant, Berry, South Coast

    Kasey and Ben’s wedding day was filled with the warmth and love of their family and friends plus as an added bonus, the weather gods came to the party by turning on a beautiful South Coast day which was just perfect to celebrate the beginning of their together forever journey. Kasey and Ben selected Silos Restaurant as the location for their reception. Silos is located on a green hill just outside Berry, which features two silos that almost a century ago was used to store grain.

    The love story of Kasey & Ben began in August/September of 2008 when they went on a double date arranged by Kasey’s best friend. Both were feeling very nervous, but by the end of that evening they had exchanged their first kiss and the rest is history. Four years later they moved in together and on 16 July 2015, Ben arranged a weekend away in the Blue Mountains, where he could not have organised a more romantically perfect setting to ask Kasey to be his wife. Snow, roses and champagne, Kasey in tears when asked and the answer was a resounding yes!

    They exchanged vows and became one at St. Marys Star Of The Sea in Gerringong earlier in the afternoon then returned to Silos for photographs around the picturesque property whilst guests enjoyed wine tasting. Soon it was time to commence the festivities! Entering to two songs from Grease by Olivia Newton John & John Travolta, the wedding party, then Kasey and Ben entered the Marquee adjacent to Silos Restaurant to great applause and twirling napkins!

    Following an exquisite entrée, it was time for our first set of speeches. First up was Ben’s Grandfather Mick, then Ben’s Mum Vicki and followed by Kasey’s Dad Peter. Lovely speeches from each one of them with beautiful sentiments being expressed about our newlyweds. An emotional father daughter dance then captivated the guests as Kasey and Peter shared a special moment on the dance floor. Some fun with the Newlywed Game and then it was time for guests to enjoy the delicious main meal.

    The second set of speeches commenced with Maid of Honour Hannah recounting the story of the first date. Best man and Ben’s younger brother, Josh was next and last but not least, the man of the moment, Ben! Ben expressed how he always dreamed of his wedding day, how it would be and the type of person his wife would be. He went on to convey how Kasey exceeded his dream and vision of the person he would marry and how this wedding day was better than he ever imagined. The love Ben has for Kasey is obvious, he does not hide it and it is returned in spadesful by Kasey – truly they are a perfect match!

    At the end of the speech it was time for their first dance as husband and wife to a very unique version of Keith Urban’s “Your Everything” – another special moment which Kasey and Ben will remember forever and once again captivating the guests. They then cut their wedding cake before Ben shared a dance with his mum, Vicki – which was just beautiful. It was now party time, time for everybody to let their hair down and have some fun!

    In what seemed to be too soon, it had come to the time to start wrapping up the festivities, but not before the bouquet toss, garter toss, everybody joining in on the dance floor for one final dance and then Kasey and Ben departing through a guard of honour to commence their happy ever after!

    Kasey and Ben, it was nothing but a joy to get to know you both along with your family & friends. I feel blessed to have been granted the huge honour to play a part in your amazing wedding day as your South Coast Wedding MC and South Coast Wedding DJ. I feel privileged to have witnessed first hand how much you both love, cherish and how devoted you are to each other. It makes my heart happy to see how you both value family and friendships. It was nothing but a pleasure every step of the way and I know that your love will continue to grow with every passing day. To echo words spoken by Ben’s mum Vicki, love is all you need and if you have love, nothing is impossible and happiness is assured! May love, laughter and music fill your lives forever!!!
