Wedding Consultation

To ensure all of the elements of your Wedding turn out the way you intend, we offer a free pre-wedding consultation to discuss any particular requirements for your day including music, timing and any specifics.

What will it cost?

The entertainment is often the most overlooked element of your Wedding but often the part that leaves the lasting impression for you and your guests. Prices can vary depending on what you need or want for your special day. We’ll offer a quote based on what your needs and if you want to arrange a free consultation then we can do that too.

Wedding Location

We’ve worked in some of the finest Wedding venues across Auckland, the Waikato and beyond so have an idea of how most venues are laid out and what equipment may be required. If you’re planning an outdoor Wedding in a park, reserve or beach then we can cater to that too.

Wedding Equipment – Sound & Lighting

We’ve got a large range of professional quality sound and DJ lighting and effects equipment that would be a perfect addition for your Wedding depending on what you may like to add that extra ‘flare’ and atmosphere to the celebration part of your evening.

MC

If you need someone to act as MC at your Wedding then talk to us about what you need and let friends and family sit back and enjoy the day with you without the extra pressure.

Wedding Music

We’ll work closely with you to organise your music preferences prior to your event and provide any assistance when deciding on those special songs including the First Dance, the signing of the register and the song you’ll walk down the aisle to. You can submit your music requests easily via our online music selection tool.

Thank you so much Jono, you were absolutely fantastic as the DJ and MC at our wedding! We’ve had so many guests commenting on the awesome music and how funny you were as MC. You took care of the whole wedding for us, from the ceremony through the reception and played the perfect music to keep everyone up and dancing all night long!

Jenna & Liam Newey

Great DJ, reasonably priced. Jono was friendly, well prepared and understood exactly what we wanted for our wedding. He was very helpful and would definitely recommend him!

Vanessa Holmes

Jono was amazing! Very professional and great to deal with. During the wedding process it can be easy to feel stressed but Jono would always answer my emails in a timely and lovely manner, always putting my mind to ease and helping with suggestions and guidance along the way. He made things stress free.

On the night he was great. He set up so quietly that I did not even notice. I gave him a few song suggestions and told him a rough idea of what I wanted – a mix of old school and also new stuff. He played great music and a perfect mix of these. Heaps of people were up and dancing – all ages! it was so much fun!

Great value for money and I will not hesitate to recommend Jono to anyone looking for a top class DJ. Thanks again for everything!

Natasha Vyfvinkel

Thank you for being apart of our special day and for making everything run so smoothly. You were very easy to deal with and we felt comfortable leaving everything up to you on the night. Music makes such a difference to an experience and I am 100% certain everyone had a great night and spent most of their time on the dance floor! Thanks again for everything and we will get through some photos as soon as we can!

Derek & Kim MacQuarrie

Thank you so much for everything that you did for us last Saturday on our big day. Elizabeth and I massively appreciated how organised things were, and how professionally everything was carried out, and would have absolutely no hesitation in using your services again, and recommending you to friends for future events.

Simon & Elizabeth Lewis

We hired Jono to be the DJ for our wedding and couldn’t have been happier. Not being too musically versed ourselves, we didn’t have much to give Jono in guiding the set list for the night. Jono did an outstanding job at selecting a good variety of music to suit the guests and was very accommodating to any requests. He arrived and set up at the venue with plenty of time and was on the ball throughout the night. Highly recommended to all.

Peter & Kristy van Loon

Jono you are the man!! We had such an awesome time on Saturday. I hope you enjoyed all our terrible dance moves lol! Thank you so much for making our wedding a success xxx

Fiona Pettigrew

Just wanted to say thank you so much for being our DJ on Friday! Everyone loved the music, they have all commented and said how good it all was! You made our day so easy, being at the ceremony and reception and we loved all the music you played on the dance floor:) Thank you for travelling all the way up there for our day! You helped to make it stress free and wonderful, thank you!!

Rebecca & Josh Rosser

We would like to thank you for all your work at our wedding. We have received nothing but compliments about the day and reception, you played a huge part in that. We loved that you were able to source all the songs we wanted for the ceremony and cocktail hour and later on in the night were able to read the crowd and adapt the music to who was out there dancing. We had a perfect day and would like to formally thank you for you contribution to that. We will definitely be recommending you to others.

Shannon & Sarah Hill

We would like to thank you for your contribution in making our wedding a huge success. You did a wonderful job of selecting the right music for the occasion and read our guests like a pro. Everyone had a ball! We would especially like to thank you for going the extra mile in obtaining a copy of our first dance song. We will definitely recommend you to our family and friends! Thanks again from a very happy Cheri and Daniel Main

Cheri & Daniel Main

Big thank you to Jono for being our DJ last weekend at our Wedding. He did a fantastic job. Music was a good mixture and he also did our lighting which included a custom light effect that projected our names on to the wall (which was better than what we imagined). We’ll definitely recommend!

Greg & Kelly Nicholson

Hi Jono, Thank you for the lovely card we received today. Thanks so much for the awesome DJing at our wedding reception, we had an amazing night and you kept the tunes coming.

Laura Baddeley

I have to write and thank you so much for making this Wedding such a superb party. Your expertise at getting the music just right was amazing – the dance floor was always full. This was just the finale to your job – you have been a pleasure to deal with, very professional and always available to answer our calls and emails. Thank you Jono, we will certainly recommend you to others and happy to reassure any of your future clients of your ability.

Sandra McGowan

Jono did a great job at my wedding on the 17th January 2019. Super happy with how professional he is and the music choices he made for our Wedding Reception. Would 100% recommend him for your event or wedding!

Jessica Heslin

The Ridler is a fantastic DJ, we have used him on several occasions as well as our Wedding day. He interacted well with the guests and accommodated their song requests. We have only received compliments on the entire event and I felt that Jono was a very large part of that success. The Ridler always has everyone up dancing all night and changes the music to suit the crowd.

Kylie Raffaelli

We just wanted to say the biggest thank you for being our DJ at our wedding. It was the most amazing day and night for us and everything turned out perfectly! You did a fantastic job and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the song choices and mixing! We honestly couldn’t have asked for anything more. Once again, thank you so much. We are so incredibly happy and grateful. You are amazing!

Your Perfect Wedding Day with an Experienced Professional DJ

Your Wedding Day is a big deal and playing a part in your special day is not a task we take lightly. It’s one of the momentous days of your life surrounded by friends and family as you take the step of committing to your partner in life, for the rest of your life. There’s a lot to consider when planning your Wedding Day and the least we can do is make sure the music is an easy piece of the puzzle so you don’t have to worry. Leave the music and entertainment to us! We’re available for the Wedding Ceremony, the Wedding Reception, or both. We’d be honoured to help bring your dream to reality and will work with you to ensure everything goes as planned.

Wedding Ceremony

The Wedding Ceremony is an important part of the whole day, pretty much the most important part! There’s a number of elements that make the Wedding Ceremony run smoothly and the music and sound is key. Trust a professional like us to take care of it all for you. We have a portable, light-weight, battery powered system ideal for indoor or outdoor Ceremonies (including beaches, parks, reserves where power is not an option).

We have two systems available providing fantastic sound with up to 2 wireless microphones (e.g. a lapel and a handheld) that are able to cater for up to 120 guests or up to 200 guests. If you’ve got more people or a large space to cover, we can add extra speakers which are also battery powered and wireless, eliminating the need to run unsightly cables and leads to get the coverage.

We’ll take care of the music as guests arrive, the Processional (walking down the aisle), the Register Signing and the Recessional (as you exit as Husband & Wife).

Wedding Reception

The Wedding Reception is the party part of the day where you can start to relax and celebrate the occasion with your invited guests. We’re able to provide some ambient background music for during canapés following the Ceremony, during dinner and of course the First Dance and the party part of the evening.

We’ll play music that you and your guests know and we’ll cater for everyone at the party (parents and grandparents included) by playing a mix of songs to suit all tastes. We’re happy to take requests on the day and you'll be able to let us know exactly what you would like played prior to the big day via our online music selection!

We have a professional looking tidy set up which takes up minimal space. We provide our own table/booth which hides all cables & leads so doesn’t take away from the look you set up for the venue. We provide all of the top-of-the-range sound and lighting equipment including a wireless microphone for speeches or MC (if required) suitable for your guest numbers. We can also set up earlier in the day prior to guests arriving (if we’re providing entertainment for the Reception only) so not to disrupt guests later in the night.

Communication

From the initial enquiry to after the Wedding date, we’ll communicate with you all the way through and are only a phone call or email away. You’ll receive a quote promptly and we’re more than happy to discuss further and go over any details with you. If there’s any tweaks you’d like made then that’s easily done! You’ll also receive a web link to submit any songs you’d like played on the night, any you don’t wish to be played and a chance to specify any particular songs.
Before the day, we’ll get together to go over the music, the plan for the day, the timeline, specific needs etc.

Equipment

We have professional, top-of-the-line sound and lighting equipment from internationally renowned companies including QSC, Denon, Pioneer, Apple, Chauvet, Antari and more. All equipment is regularly tested and updated to ensure the best quality and technology available. There is a range of lighting and effects available including firework effects, confetti cannons, bubble machines, a projector & screen for photos/video and much more. Take a look at what we can offer HERE and let us know when requesting a quote! Easy!

Testimonials

We’ve been to hundreds of Weddings over the years and worked with many couples who have been very happy with what we have provided. You can read more about these on our Testimonals page HERE.

Wedding MC

We are also happy to act as your MC for the day. Being your Wedding MC is something that we take as a great privilege and we’ll be there to ensure your day runs as smoothly as possible. We’ll do our best to ensure everything runs to time, get across any key messages, introduce those making speeches and more. We can also liaise with the photographer/videographer, celebrant, caterer, waiting/serving staff, the Function Manager at the venue (as well as the guests) to ensure people are in the right place at the right time... making everything one less thing for you to have to worry about!
