Meet the Marriage Makers | Primo Parties
proudly part of 'The Recommended Collection'
Tell us a little about you and your lovely business!
Primo Parties is made up of Adam and Jason (and our wives!). We are two friends who have a love of DJing! Adam is based in Poole (our main office) while Jason is just outside of Dorchester. This means we are able to cover the area from Southampton right up to Yeovil - we also travel as far north as Salisbury.
2019 is our 5th Anniversary, however as individuals we have been DJing for around 20 years combined! Specialising in music from the 1980's to now (we will also happily play songs from other eras), we believe we know everything there is to know about the last 30 years of music!
In 2018, we were awarded the Dorset Wedding Supplier Award for best DJ. An award we were also 2016 runners up in. We also hold a platinum DJ mark, which assesses our professionalism and organisation regarding licences, testing and administration.
What is your favourite thing about working in the wedding industry?
Our favourite thing about working with our amazing couples is watching their faces when 'their song' comes on...the sheer joy of that song, on that day is something we will never tire of. The fantastic (sometimes not so!) sound of family and friends singing at the top of their voices to a song that we have chosen for them is an amazing feeling!
Are you spotting any trends for 2019/2020?
We offer a 'glo-wedding' package which is very popular at the moment. Those couples particularly into their 90's/00's dance music are opting to 'rave' for the last couple of hours of their reception. We provide the music (obviously) and the glo accessories and they show us their moves!
What do you offer that others can’t? What makes you special?
Primo Parties is unique because of us. With experience of planning weddings ourselves (Adam was a wedding planner in a previous life) we are able to advise our couples about anything and everything connected to their big day. We are happy to chat through timings and plans and will give our help and advice when required. We find that couples book us because we aren't the stereotypical DJs - we don't talk too much, hide behind our DJ booth or play the same songs every night. We invite children to take a look at what we do and we will happily demonstrate a party dance or two!
What five words would you use to describe your business?
Different | Bespoke | Modern | Passionate | Dedicated
What top tips would you like to share with our lovely couples planning their big day?
For us, we see too many couples plan their evening reception based on what they THINK their guests will want. This is your day and it is important that you get what you want from it. If the bride and groom are stood at the bar or in another room then your guests will be doing the same. Make sure your night is perfect for you - your guests will love it because it will reflect you and your love for each other!
