We booked Carlo for our August wedding, he provided the music throughout the day and for the evening party. Carlo took the time to get to know our likes and dislikes and the music was perfect, for the majority of guests this was their first chance to party since lockdown and they all absolutely loved it, the dance floor was full all night! Carlo also created our wedding video and it was wonderful, it’s amazing to see everyone having such a good time, the drone shots in particular were great! We cant wait to see the photos! Would 100% recommend.

Carlo is an amazing, genuine guy who is just brilliant at what he does and we wouldn't have wanted anyone else to video our special day. He put us at ease straight away and captured so many moments that we missed but without being intrusive. Our video is just amazing and we now have a fantastic momento to keep for years to come. If you are looking for a photographer, videographer and DJ then I wouldn't hesitate in booking Derbyshire Wedding Events as they are just amazing and we really can't thank them enough for capturing our special day.Alison and Elwood Blues

An amazing DJ who more than exceeded our expectations. Couldn't recommend him more. Our dance floor was never empty!We booked Carlos for our wedding on the 7th of August 2021. We were recommended him from a family member.He met with us before our wedding so he could get to know us and understand exactly what we wanted from him. He really tailored the experience to us.On the day, Carlos was fantastic. He read the room so well and played such a great mix of songs. On top of this, he filmed parts of the day and took pictures and provided us with microphones for the speeches.So impressed with this service and have nothing negative to say!

We finally had our day Monday 2nd August after 2 postponements. We booked Carlo for our wedding DJ all day the communication was excellent when re-arranging the dates. He was truly amazing throughout, nothing was too much trouble! Carlo asked exactly what we wanted and we didn't really have any requirements but he played songs for everyone! All of our guests thoroughly enjoyed their day and I'm so glad we picked him as our supplier. The added bonus of some pictures and a video just made it even more special. We cannot wait to see them. Thank you so much for everything Carlo! Would definitely recommend you to anyone!The New Mr & Mrs Bates

Carlo was the most amazing DJ , as well as videographer (including drone work). He was professional from start to finish; he really understood how we wanted our wedding to be; and he took time to get to know us as a couple. I would recommend his expertise to anybody. Alongside his expertise, the rustic heart he placed on our dance floor was beautiful and the lighting fitted in really well with our theme. He truly is incredible at what he does and we can't thank him enough!Sam and Sammyleigh Kemp

We had Carlo booked for our wedding and even with COVID pandemic and rearranging the wedding he was nothing but supportive.I couldn't imagine having anyone else with us on the day the guy is fantastic, not only did he perform as a DJ he also videoed the whole day as well as interviewing guests (the guests all found this a highlight of the day), he also carried on taking pictures for us once our photographers had gone home giving us great entertainment.Then just when you think things couldn't get any better he breaks out his drone for some amazing videos and pictures!I wouldn't think twice about recommending Carlo to any of my friends or family.Thanks again for all your helpJamie

What an amazing wedding day we had, and a lot of the input towards making the most memorable wedding was from Carlo at Derbyshire wedding events. You would imagine taking on the role of photography, videography and being a DJ would cause a lot of stress for one person to handle, but Carlo made it look effortless and did a fantastic job. Absolutely amazing, thank you.John Simpson

We booked Carlo for our wedding in Cambridgeshire and he was an amazing choice. Managed the DJ set wonderfully, a couple of additional MC type tasks through the day and has even been able to produce beautiful video and photos. A huge plus with the photos is that he was able to capture some beautiful moments later in the evening, after the first dance had taken place and the day photographer had gone with no impact on the DJ element of his job. On top of this the photo quality from what we've seen so far is exceptional. Carlo has a really kind, easy going way of approaching things and at no point in the day did I even need to think about the elements he had control over - very much on top of everything is his standard ability. Very friendly to everyone at the wedding as well. We've only had positive, kind words about you!Thank you for everything you did for us. It was a key part of building our amazing day.Mike & Kel Buckle

Absolutely brilliant! Carlo DJ'd our wedding a couple of years ago and we couldnt have asked for anyone better! Our dancefloor was packed all night long - he played all the songs we wanted and the added bonus of the video from the evening reception is something we're forever grateeful for! Would 100% recommend Carlo to anyone looking for a wedding DJ in the area.

Carlos from day one of our wedding has been professional throughout but also helpful and very friendly. We felt very comfortable with him. On our big day he made it so easy for us and not only did we get some amazing photos but music and video too. He literally made the day! Even after 2 years he was helpful enough to reload our big day and send it to us, after my laptop had a hissy fit and deleted the file. I would without doubt recommend Carlos and Derbyshire wedding events

Given the times you’d expect both customers and businesses alike to be flexible and sympathetic to the situations both parties are in. Despite in this case the customers best attempts to accommodate Derbyshire wedding events with a change of wedding date due to covid, Carlo insists on withholding the first payment. Despite it being his inability to accommodate being the blocker. It goes without saying that blocking a customer is unprofessional. I’d urge other customers to consider this when trusting Derbyshire wedding events

Had to change our wedding date due to covid. Carlo couldn't agree with the new date and decided to block us when we asked for our deposit back. Completely unprofessional, childish behaviour to block the customer

What great service! My husband booked Carlo and I could not have been happier with his choice.Catered to all of our needs and was able to change things efficiently if asked.I actually was not aware Carlo would be filming the day. I believe we had no video from the day and to my surprise when my husband showed me I was so excited! The video is everything I could of wished for a more. To this day I sit and watch it very often and the content is exceptional.My isle music was as asked and our reception music was amazing! Carlo got everyone up dancing on the dance floor having a great time. Down to the music whilst eating was as suited.We highly recommend!Thankyou so much Again Carlo!

Carlo is amazing. He made our wedding amazing. His DJ set was fantastic throughout the entire day & he got everyone on the dance floor in the evening. He took some amazing photos and by far, the best thing was the video he took. Having that to watch back and relive our day was the best thing we could have purchased. He is the friendliest guy, the best DJ and an amazing photographer/videographer. Definitely a good booking!!!

Carlo captured our wedding beautifully as our videographer, and took some sublime photos that allowed us to see elements of the big day that we would've missed without him capturing them.He kept everyone entertained and dancing away till the late night with an amazing playlist that seemed everyone just loved.Always quick to respond with any help needed and truly was a big part of making our big day perfect! Thank you for being amazing Carlo, and will recommend you in a heart-beat to anyone who needs a DJ.Best Wishes From,Katie and Fraser

We had such an amazing experience with Carlo as our wedding DJ. Don’t think I’ve ever danced for an hour solid but the amazing songs just kept on coming. He just knew the crowd and how to keep them hooked.The medley song at the end was perfect, each new song just put an even bigger smile on my face.The setup was fabulous too, felt a far cry from the ‘usual’ wedding DJ look.The photography and videography of the evening was just such an amazing extra touch, we’ve loved looking through our very professional looking photographs. Carlo truly captured the joy in the room.I also have to mention the consultation meeting, it was so thorough and we left for the first time feeling like the wedding was real, Carlo just understood us and listened to our likes and dislikes.Highly recommend him and the service 😊

We hired Derbyshire Wedding Events for the DJ, hire of ‘LOVE’ letters and filming of the ceremony at our Wedding at Shottle Hall on 12/07/19. We set up our own playlists of varying songs through set hours of the day and night and sent this to Carlo a couple of weeks prior. There were no issues and when arriving at the venue a few hours early on the day and he was already there setting up. Everything went to plan and Carlo provided a brilliant service, great video of the ceremony, some video messages from guests and first dance. Very friendly, helpful and we would definitely recommend. Thank you, Dan & Leanne.

Carlo was fantastic from day. He was professional and provided great knowledge of song choices and about our venue that we didn’t know. Anyone who is looking for a DJ then look no further great song choices, knows exactly what to play and when and everything is unique to how you want it. We hired Carlo for all day at our wedding which included the videography which was great a lovely video to look back on our special day most of the time you didn’t even know he was filming or taking photos. Couldn’t recommend a nicer bloke and amazing service Carlo is your man.

Carlo is lovely to work with! He keeps you informed right from first booking, all the way up to your big day. You can have as much or as little input as you want with music choices and your guests can make requests on the night to. We decided to let our photographer have a slightly shorter day on the recommendation that Carlo is great with pictures and video during the disco and have not been disappointed with the results. Our wedding was 4 days ago and he has already sent us both! I hope Carlo makes your day and helps finish off your evening the way he did on ours, cannot fault a thing and would highly recommend him to anyone :)

Carlo was our DJ for our wedding (December 2018). He was brilliant. Very accommodating when it came to playlists and to last minute changes. He played all our requests and even let my younger sister take over at one point. His set up - lights, etc. complemented the room as well. Oh and we also got photos and video coverage of everyone on the dancefloor. Recommended!!

Highly recommend Carlo from Derbyshire wedding events. His DJ set up is professional and will look great at any venue. His choice of props and lighting are super, and his music range will cover everyone's tastes. We had Carlo for an all day package which included day videography and photography. We have a brilliant video of all the important moments from our wedding, as well as lovely guests messages, and we have a range of brilliant photos capturing the natural moments of guests, the Groomsmen getting ready and the venue decor before guests arrived, as well as funny shots of our guests dancing in the evening. Definately recommend DWE.

Carlo was the DJ at an event I was at and he was great. Provided good ‘interval’ music between bands and then was a very interactive ‘silent disco’ host with lots of requests dealt with. Friendly, helpful and flexible.

Wow. Now I’m fussy about my music. Real fussy. Carlo listened with much patience to what I would want and not want but then asked that I had faith in his judgement. Wow that was a big ask but I took the leap of faith and it proved to be a wise decision. He really knows how to read the crowd. Our party was made by the superb job Carlo did. It’s not until you have a quality DJ that you realise how important they are. They can make or break the party. With Carlo you get all of him because he really devoted all of his energy to make the party work. Carlo certainly made our party. He really knows his music and can select the right track at the right time. His gear is top quality and he certainly has enough of it. Never seen a DJ with so many toys. I know that it all worked out so well because it was so obvious that Carlo cares and he really really wants to just make the party the best ever. I suppose my only regret is that our venue had no time curfew and Carlo seemed to dig forever deep and keep on going to 3:30. The main is a legend with a huge heart. A true gent. He will make your party because he knows his stuff, he’s got the kit and he cares. Thank you Carlo!!!

Carlo did the music and video of our whole wedding and he didn't let us down, from the ceremony to the last song of the night the music was spot on and we've thoroughly enjoyed watching the video he made of our day. Would highly recommend for your special day and any other events.

We picked Derbyshire events for our wedding dj, however Carlo did much more than we could have asked for!We trusted him to do our whole days worth of music, including the ceremony, which went brilliantly with no hitches at all.He filmed the whole day, and turned this into a video which was great because we couldn't get round everyone, so we are able to watch back anything we missed. He also gave our guests the opportunity to add some personal messages to wish us well, which was brilliant and we loved seeing it.The evening do was also filmed, and me and my husband have not stopped laughing at our guests dancing away. The great thing about it, is most of the guests didn't even realise the camera was there, so it captured true emotions and real memories that a photograph could just not capture.We highly recommend Carlo, he's been great to work with since the day we booked him!

Minx Photo Shoot

Thank you so much for your patience and time.

I honestly have no idea how you managed, I appreciate Minx is not the easiest of pets to photograph.

I asked Carlo from Derbyshire Wedding Events if he would take a few good photos of my beloved and spoilt cat. I advised him that my cat absolutely dislikes anyone else except me and that it would not be an easy task to get her to sit still and pose. Carlo never got discouraged and his angelic patience really paid off. It is so clear to see that Carlo is so passionate about his photography and is also such a great animal lover, besides such a fun and great guy to work with. Always with a smile on his face, nothing is ever to much trouble for him and we had such a great time and most importantly he managed to get a few really amazing pictures of my cat.

Thank you so much for your time, effort and great result!

Hope you’re well! First of all I just wanted to say a massive thank you for making our wedding day so amazing.

Genuinely I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing DJ. You made it so fun and we had an endless amount of compliments on how great you were!!

You had people up on the dance floor that normally are glued to the bar!
Hands down one of the best things about our day was you!
Thank you again, you really did make our day and I’m definitely going to have to sing your praises on a review too!!
