All our events you’ll have written confirmation of your booking, peace of mind knowing that you’re dealing with a full-time professional business and you’ll have full access to the Client Area on the website. Once your booking is confirmed you’ll be sent your login details to your event planner.
In here you can make up a playlist of “Must” plays, play “If possible” and “Do not” plays! You can also check timings, see what payments have been made when the balance is due and a lot more besides.
Musically it’s your choice!
We have all genres from 50’s swing right through to today’s chart hits, you are encouraged to tell us what you want playing and of course let’s not forget that all important first dance. I’ll also take requests on the night so that way I can play something for everyone! Also I’ll use the mic as much or as little as you want.
We also get your guests involved, you’ll be given a link for your guests to log on and request songs. Don’t worry you still have control over the playlist as you can delete any you don’t want!
We offer an inclusive consultation service prior to the Wedding where you can either chat on the phone or when possible meet up with Paul face to face that way we’re sure we’ll get everything just the way you both want it. We’ll confirm all the timings, chat about who is going to be there, your first dance and any last song that you’d like to round the night off with. If you are having other entertainment, for example a live band we’ll get their contact details and liase directly with them so there’s no duplication of songs from their set list.
Can’t recommend Paul enough, we booked him for our wedding yesterday for the all day package. He was amazing all day thank you so much x
We want to say a massive thank you to Paul from Spirits High for all his fantastic help on our wedding day. I don't think I could think of a better, more personable service, right from the start of all our planning up until our Wedding day itself. He provided full, transparent information on costs /contactual information from the start, and he was very quick to respond to email queries which we really appreciated. I also arranged to play a surprise song on the piano at the venue for my partner, which he helped with and ensured everything was in place on the day for the surprise to go to plan! As for the music, which was massively important in our case, this is also tailored to you as a couple. We didn't want a DJ that just played whatever they want on the day. Paul provides a different service - he gets an idea of your music style, and you can choose however little or much music yourself that you want on your day. You can also have a specific link for guests to select songs via an online portal if you choose to. We choose the full day package, and he also provided an MC service for the day which really helped us stay organised, by announcing guests photos /announcing our entry for the Wedding breakfast /cake cutting, which were simple but lovely touches. There were also adult /kids games, which were taken indoors as it was a bit windy outside, but that helped with entertaining the guests; we also rented his rustic love sign which was also a lovely touch. Paul arranged an appointment a few weeks before our wedding (and came to us as there were so many things to still sort at that point!), where he went over all our requests (we had specific choices for songs that meant a lot to us for the ceremony for example), and ensured our plan for the day was the way we wanted it. He also knew our venue well (Shottle Hall), so he helped with arranging how everything runs on the day too, which helped calm our nerves in advance. So basically, a fantastic all-round service from a really lovely guy, who takes a lot of pride in providing a decent service. Our day was so full of amazing happy memories, a lot of which was due to Paul's help. We'd strongly recommend him as a DJ for anyone's wedding! Thank you so much again Paul, Ann & Stacey Chadwick-O'Neill. More...
Paul was brilliant on our wedding day we couldn’t have picked anyone better. Would highly recommend!! Thankyou again!
Paul was amazing on my wedding day :), he visited before the big day and listened to what we wanted and the music we liked. I was not disappointed. I also enjoyed the games that he provided and my guests were playing them all throughout the day. He was with us all day helping to coordinate. I would definitely recommend Paul being part of your big day. Me and my husband can’t thank him enough. More...
Paul is an absolute star and such a lovely person. He really took the time to listen to what we wanted and it was great to meet him for a chat before the big day. Paul really filled us with confidence and this meant we could really relax and enjoy ourselves. The mix of music was great and we all enjoyed a good dance. Paul also introduced us and the speeches, which was absolutely amazing. He was professional but also down to earth and relaxed. Paul knew our venue (Shottle Hall) and the the staff really well so this helped everything run smoothly. We loved having him as part of our day and we honestly do recommend him. Thank you Paul!

Paul at Spirits High was absolutely brilliant from start to finish, out of all of our wedding suppliers he was by far the quickest to reply to any of our questions and queries. Often we would sit at home with a glass of wine think of a question, send an email and almost immediately get a reply. He came to our house to do a pre wedding meeting where he had some great ideas and bought examples of how to use the props, uplighters, signs etc and we chose our pic & mix favourites. The evening of our wedding we moved over to the marquee at Shottle Hall where Paul had already set everything up and the place looked amazing. The music was brilliant and Paul's input on the microphone was just as we wanted it kept to the introductions and a few announcements but not to much. Altogether the service from Paul has been second to none and we would highly recommend him to anyone. More...
Fantastic. Paul DJ'd at our wedding on 27th August and we cannot fault him. Our requests (and guest requests) and dedications were played and thoroughly enjoyed.
Every meeting/email was responded to and nothing was too much effort. Even the early morning emails!
Very professional, personal and friendly service- we will recommend and also find another party to organise so we can use Spirits High again �
From Emma & Andrew Corker x More...
Spirits High made our wedding reception absolutely amazing! There was no competition choosing our wedding dj! My sister had Spirits High for her wedding over 4 years ago and still remembered how amazing it was and knew i couldnt go anywhere else! !! And what an amazing decision that was!! The dancefloor was packed out all night!! Couldnt have wished for a better DJ! Thanks so much!!!! �� More...
We booked Spirits High for our daughter's wedding. Rebecca and Tom like things a little different and are into a variety of Indy and rock so we were a little concerned about how successfully this would transfer to a wedding disco! We should have had no fears! Paul obviously knows and enjoys his music which led to an incredibly enjoyable evening. There is no wonder he is always booked up! Thank you for your care and attention! More...
Absolutely fantastic! Paul provided the music at our wedding reception last week and the music was fantastic. Paul was very professional throughout & always answered any queries we had. All our guests commented on how great the music was & the dance floor was never empty! All of our requests both beforehand & on the night were played & the giant games we also hired went down a treat with the kids- & the adults!! Thanks again Paul. More...

We booked spirits high entertainment for our wedding back in July. We met Paul a few times before the day then he came to our house at a day and time to suit us to run through everything .
Paul was very professional and nothing was too much trouble, he helped us plan our music for every part of the day ,
- entering the marquee
- cutting the cake
- first dance
- last song to be played
He even asked us if there was music he wasn't allowed to play,
music he had to play , if he can take requests from guests and wasn't bothered when I handed him a list of 50ish songs I wanted playing during our meal.
It was just fantastic and a fab range of songs with just he right amount of cheesy music. Everyone I spoke to said how brilliant the DJ and music was.
We also had the postbox, garden games and love letters from Paul , the letters were brill for photos and the games kept guests well entertained as photos were been taken.
Paul you were fantastic and I would highly recommend you to anyone. More...
Great service. Paul is an amazing guy, he does exactly what you want him to and is very accomodating. He was more than happy to play the music we wanted; wasn't afraid to kick the night off with Slayer, skip back to 'acceptable' wedding music, then crank up the heavy metal later on. We would both recommend him for weddings; both his entertainment skills and uplighting package set our reception off brilliantly. More...
Paul was our DJ for our wedding at Shottle Hall on Feb. 19th. My husband and I currently live in the US, and Paul was great at coordinating everything over the internet. Our guests really enjoyed using the song request form as well. Our guest list included both Brits and Americans and Paul was great about playing a mix of music that appealed to everyone and reflected our musical tastes as a couple. He even went out of his way to purchase some American tunes, particularly our last dance, which we really appreciated! Thank you again for a great night - everyone had an absolute blast dancing the night away! More...

Paul was the DJ for our wedding at Shottle Hall on Friday 10th March. Simply put he did a fantastic job! Not only on the evening itself but in the run up and preparation for our wedding. He took his time to get to know us and understand the type of music we wanted playing, along with helping us select uplighting colours for the venue and other bits & bobs to help the evening run smoothly. All guests we have spoken to since have said how good the music was, most people's feet are still recovering - the sign of a great night! Thanks Paul, wouldn't hesitate in recommending you, in fact i already have done! More...
Paul was our DJ at Cressbrook on 13.5.17 I honestly could not have asked for a better DJ :-) He went above and beyond for us on more than one occasion and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. The guest request website is brilliant and whilst he manages to play the requests he is excellent at tailoring the songs to the night. Very professional, friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Thank you Paul :-) More...

We had Paul as our DJ at Shottle hall on the 26/10/2017, we had the deluxe all day package. Paul was absolutely amazing, the big day went amazing, everyone loved the games it kept the children happy, the love letters were just set beautifully next to the dance door. When sorting things out paul came out to see us, to know exactly what we wanted. The music that was played everyone loved not many people were sitting. If anyone is planning an event such as a wedding I highly recommend Paul! Thank you so much More...

We had Paul do the evening DJ at our wedding in August at Shottle Hall. We also hired the giant games from him for the day. From meeting Paul at a wedding fair to the night of the wedding, he was very approachable & enthusiatic about what we would like for our wedding. The night itself was incredible!! He even managed to trick our guests when the music 'went wrong' for our surprise routine!! I have never seen such a full dancefloor at a wedding! From the first song to the very last, everyone was up having dance offs & busting some incredible moves! We cannot recommend Paul enough - he even played one more song!!!!!!!!! Thanks again, Mr & Mrs Hammill (Shottle Hall August 2017). X More...
We hired Paul for the evening disco of our wedding at the end of November. We were very happy with everything from beginning to end and would definitely recommend Spirit’s high to anyone looking for a wedding disco! Thanks again, Paul.
We hired Paul for the deluxe all day package on the 18.10.17 at shottle hall! He was amazing! From the minute go we got a webpage set up where we could choose songs for the night and also choose songs we didn’t want to be played!
On the day Paul couldn’t do enough to help us from gathering everyone for the photos to having everyone on the dance floor with some amazing music! Also hire of the post box and giant garden games which keep the kids (big kids) entertained! So so helpful and at a resonance price! Would recommend you to everyone! Thankyou for everything Paul!! Love Mr and Mrs Ashmore! � More...
He was absolutely amazing!! He made the evening very special for me and my new husband � would most definitely recommend as a DJ for any event �
Wow.. well what can I say apart from you was amazing � beautiful music in the day... all the good old songs at night got everyone up on there feet! The kids loved the games and the adults � Thank you so much for making our day a special one! More...
Paul did such an amazing job playing at our wedding! He really got the party started and played everything we wanted and better! It was so handy being able to meet before hand to discuss what we wanted such a personal and professional service, we couldn’t recommend more! Thank you! More...
Paul was the DJ for our wedding on 20th January 2018. From our first meeting to the final song he was excellent. Great communication and good website for friends and family to request their song choices.
He advised and worked with us every step of the way which helped us feel more relaxed and confident about our choice of entertainment. Paul joined in with the fun and laughter on the night and he was able to read the mood on the dance floor throughout the whole night. Even the mother in law was up throwing some shapes :)
The giant LOVE letters and postbox fitted in with our theme perfectly and brought an extra touch of class to our perfect day.
Thanks Paul you are awesome!! :)

We received an excellent service from start to finish for our wedding DJ package. We especially loved the personal touch that is offered and everything that we discussed at our pre wedding meeting was delivered perfectly on the night, right down to Paul making notes of friends and family members names and music preferences and playing music dedicated to them on the night without the need for requests! We would have no hesitation recommending Spirits High to anyone wanting a professional and friendly DJ for their event. More...
Paul was the fantastic DJ at our wedding on the 3rd June. He played all of our requested songs and added more which were in keeping with the ones we had chosen on the online client area. All of our guests commented on the top tunes and the dance floor was never empty. I would recommend Spirits High for any occasion. Thanks Paul from Lyn & Matthew Paul More...
Paul joined us on Saturday at Shottle Hall, he was recommended by Shottle and top of the search list locally online for wedding DJ’s in the area.
He really listened to what we wanted and delivered a cracking night with almost all the guests on the dance floor I couldn’t recommend any more!
Thanks Paul, if we ever need a DJ again we will be sure to give you a shout! :) More...
