Frensham Heights School is not only a beautiful school, but also one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the South East of England. Nestled in the Surrey country side, and with breathtaking views from the school’s Ball Room, it is truly one the most unique and exclusive wedding venues. We love decorating the Ball […]
Headline prices often seem attractive, but by the time you’ve configured exactly what you want, prices start to spiral. That’s why here at Accolade, we never charge extra if requirements change. We charge per event rather than per hour. If we own it, it’s included. Need a mirrorball? It’s included. Architectural uplighting? It’s included. Multiple […]
Everyone loves live music. If it is done well, it can elevate the atmosphere of a wedding party and provide something really special for guests. However, DJ performances can be equally special and effective. So which is right for your wedding reception: wedding function band, wedding DJ or both? Below we outline our thoughts on […]
There are huge amounts of choice when selecting suppliers for your wedding. When choosing a caterer, you are given the opportunity to try their food to make sure it is what you want. When choosing a wedding dress, you can physically see and try what you will be buying. With a photographer, you can see a […]
A groom recently told us how glad he was that he hadn’t chosen a DJ purely on price as the music we had provided had been absolutely perfect all day, and communication before the event had meant he was never concerned about our reliability or performance. At Accolade DJs Ltd we always offer excellent value, especially when […]
Here are five wedding music tips to help you choose the right music for your wedding reception, from your ceremony through to the last dance of the night. Give your DJ as much information as you can about the sorts of music you love dancing to – as well as songs you hate hearing! This doesn’t have to […]
Everything we do is built around our passion for delighting brides, grooms and guests. Uplighting, radio microphones, background music, giant glowing letters and laser shows (to name but a few ‘extras’ we offer) all add finishing touches. However, nothing is of more importance to us than providing the right music to keep a dance floor […]
Included with every booking, wireless uplighting is a simple but highly effective way of bringing a room to life with stunning washes of colour. We have a huge range of colours to choose from, and can arrange a time for you to experiment with the myriad of colours available.
Are you having your wedding ceremony outside but there’s no power for a music system to be plugged in to? Here’s the perfect solution. We can provide a powerful, battery powered sound system, capable of serving up to 200 guests. Ideal for any remote, power-free situations, where music and/or microphones are required.
Here is a list of ten common questions we are asked by prospective clients. Our answers to each of them is the reason so many choose to book their wedding DJ with us. Q. Can we be really specific about the music we choose, and will you stick to the music we choose? A. Yes. We will […]
Having a live musician, be they a part-time enthusiast or seasoned professional, can add a little magic to a wedding ceremony or a personal touch to a first dance. If you have someone you want to play for you at some point during your wedding day, we can provide everything needed to amplify their performance for […]
Speakers and disco lights aren’t traditionally the most attractive contraptions. That, combined with dangling cables, uneven presentation and scruffy stands, can make a DJ look decidedly amateur, even before they’ve played any music. Here at Accolade DJs we are different. We know how important it is that the equipment we use does not detract from the […]
A bride and groom we worked with recently knew the sort of music they wanted, but were not sure how to make it work on the dance floor. The bride’s father had a specific, quite unusual taste in music, as did the groom; in addition, the bride’s friends were very into one sort of music, whilst the groom’s friends were […]
Bride and grooms often want to try something a little different for their first dance, and we’re always excited to see what people come up with. Recently, we had a request to mix an acoustic version of a dance track with the original version. However, the bride wanted to hear the results before the day […]
One of our recent clients wanted to have a unique and classic look for her wedding reception entertainment but didn’t know exactly how. We suggested playing the entire DJ set using traditional vinyl. She loved the idea. Although we usually use more modern play back equipment, we were able to link our music catalogue to traditional […]
Recently, we were playing at a wedding reception where the bride and groom wanted us to control the music during their wedding ceremony and provide a sound system. However, they were very worried that the attractiveness of the ornate room of the ceremony would be spoilt by a large, ugly speaker system. They were delighted […]
Sometimes it can be very difficult to think of the music to have at a celebration or remember a particular artist or song name. If you need some ideas and don’t know where to start, we can send you a range of request and play lists from previous events to give you musical inspiration!
We perform regularly with bands and really enjoy the wide range of acts we get to experience. We always work with other performers to make sure we know exactly what their plans are, helping in any way we can. Often space can be tight, however, and fitting in two PAs to a venue can be […]
