What people ask us.
Do I need a DJ or Host?
We recommend coming in and chatting to us so we can help you choose whats best for you and your day. If you can’t pop in then let’s zoom or chat on the phone. Email is also cool with us.
We tailor our service to you. We have a wide variety of specially selected artists, DJs and black tie hosts available, and we can help you choose who and what is right for you.
Having a DFC wedding host looking after your wedding leaves you to maximise every moment of your special day, so let us guide the flow of the day and create an organised but fun atmosphere. Our hosts are the perfect ice breakers; we create memories, calm nerves, entertain your guests and make sure you have a flipping good time.
We bring your day to life, create stand-out moments you and your guests will remember forever and build amazing rapport from day to night.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance & Portable Appliance Test Certificates?
Yes – of course we do! So stop worrying and leave that bit to us!
They are an essential part of our business and we will happily supply them to your venue.
We also have Risk Assessments and Method Statements if required.
They are all available to download in our ‘LOGIN’ section to give you peace of mind and to give to your venue if requested.
Do I need to pay a deposit?
Yes please! A 50% deposit is required on booking and the remaining balance needs paying 30 days in advance of your event.
We are always happy to discuss different terms if you are taking one of our packages or are one of our commercial customers.

How much is a Wedding Host?
The best thing to do would be to get in touch to chat about Wedding Hosting – we will be able to provide you with a comprehensive quote and, most importantly, help you to figure out what you want in order to make the most of your special day.
How long will our DJ play for?
As a standard, our DJs arrive to set up at 6pm, start playing (dependent on venue room availability) between 7pm and 8pm, and finish around 1am.
You have the option of paying per hour for your DJ after 1am, this will, of course, depend on your event and what you want from us. We charge £100 inc VAT per hour after 1:00AM.
Our consultations will help us to find what you need and tailor your DFC experience.
How long do we get a wedding host for?
Our hosts usually work from your wedding breakfast right through to your last dance. They also work as your evening DJ.
If you are choosing to book your wedding host for your ceremony to provide music and host (if appropriate) this can be arranged and will incur an additional fee. You can also have one of our artists for your ceremony which will add something a little different and more personal.
Is sound and lighting included?
We always provide a sound system and lighting show. All sound is of a very high quality, the speakers we all use are Evox 5’s / 8’s or 12’s. All lighting is on DMX and is fully controllable. If you do not require flashing lights, please tell us in advance of your booking. Our DJ controllers are Pioneer, and all DJs are use Mac or a high end PC.
What area do you cover?
Anywhere and everywhere! We are based in Preston, Lancashire and offer national and international coverage.
The majority of our events are North West based, we find ourselves spending a lot of time in Manchester and Cheshire! But we frequently go further afield.
With our launch of Destination by DFC, you want us? We’ll do our best to come to you. Just say where…
Can we book a band with you?
You can book a band, artist, DJ, and host with us.
Each of our artists are unique and will add a little something extra to your event; whether you want to hear the music you miss or you want a visual marvel, we’re confident that we have the right thing for you.
We have used our extensive networks across the country to source, select and develop each of our artists. We like to think our artists videos speak for themselves so take a look at their page to help you decide.
Can we double up with music?
Yes of course you can! A very popular choice in recent years has been adding our DFC Sax / Bongos, who will accompany our DJs and add something a little different to your event. DFC Live is also proving very popular in recent wedding trends. With DFC Live you get a DJ, Sax player and singer for 5 hours of entertainment.
Or if you’d like one of our vocalists to sing you down the aisle and entertain your guests before you make your grand entrance, we can do that for you.
Do you just do weddings?
We cater for everything from private parties to bar launches, corporate events and everything in between.
Our wedding hosts also work as professional presenters at corporate functions including awards ceremonies, conferences, exhibitions, charity events and gala dinners.
We also provide high quality DJs and live musicians for prestigious bars and clubs.
