The Rustic DJ is a bespoke and specialist DJ service catering solely for Barn, Farm & Country weddings. Mixing professional sound and lighting with a completely rustic visual, this service aims to compliment your beautiful rustic styled wedding and give you the opportunity to have a one of a kind experience.

 

The cute little details of your rural wedding dream should be matched in every way, and this goes for your DJ service as well. Our "Rustic" DJ set ups are one of a kind and we can even go further than that, tailoring the designs especially for you. 

Being very prop based, we have the ability to change colours, styles, greenery, flowers, and all most all aspects of each set up, Finally now you can have a DJ set up to match your country wedding, and also a DJ set up that is completely yours. 

We are Oxfordshire based, but can travel to your chosen location in the UK to bring you the sound, look and atmosphere that will match the other beautiful details of your rural wedding.

"To offer wedding couples a completely personal and unique DJ experience, one that is bespoke in soundtrack but also in visual appearance"

The Rustic DJ

We believe the appearance of your wedding DJ falls under the decor of your venue. It is a backdrop to your first dance, a backdrop to where your guests will enjoy the evening reception and it is a strong visual for the reception room. Our wish is to match your rural venue in appearance and also give you an input on how everything looks. If you are having a rustic styled wedding then most likely you have thought of different little touches to keep true to this style and your venue, however @ The Rustic DJ we are here to take that to the next level. 

With our services we offer full contact and support up until the day, to make sure we get the details perfect. We can even get in contact with your stylist and venue to make sure what we have planned is fitting and to keep everything matching. Our wish is simply for you to have a DJ service that is completely yours.

The Rustic DJ is firstly a DJ service meaning we only use professional sound systems and professional lighting for your venue and dancefloor. Maintaining a high end performance on the equipment side of things is a must, however that equipment being on show isn't! 

Our professional sound systems and all leads are hidden behind the subtle rustic visual, meaning your guests can just enjoy the quirky exterior without having to see the ugliness of what is creating the sound and lighting. 

It is not all about the visual though, we need to get the soundtrack perfect also. In the planning process we are here to chat about playlists and music genres to make sure we give you and your guests the best party possible. Getting to know you is the best way to bring your personality out through the sounds we play.

Have you thought about the last song of the evening? There is a lot of focus on the first dance and for good reason. However it is also good to think about the last dance song, as this is the memory of the last moments of the wedding. The type of song played last can completely change this memory, maybe you want everything to end on an upbeat party? Or maybe you would rather have a romantic moment to end the evening?

A big wedding team sing a long is always great!

TOP DJ TIP

@ Rustic DJ HQ the goal is to make our services as bespoke as possible. An example of this would be the quirky way that guests can make requests. We have individual request cards where songs and names can be written down so guests can make requests in a more creative and fun way. These can either work as table favours if booking an all day package or they can be collected by guests from a crate before the evening reception starts. This gets guests talking and interacting before party time comes and is also a great way to make them feel special.

.Behind our Rustic Booths the rustic feel continues as we use the request cards to make a visual playlist, this means guests can see when their request is and it also lends itself to fun interaction between your wedding party and us! 

before your day

& on your day

Here at The Rustic DJ we understand how stressful planning a wedding can be so we strive to make booking our services as easy and safe as possible. Firstly this is achieved by having full public liability insurance and making sure all the electrical equipment used is regularly PAT tested for safety purposes. This allows us to be welcomed by your venue and means the relationship between us and your venue can be as positive as possible. Secondly each booking comes with a signed contract stating all the details of services and timings, this means you can relax knowing everything is transparent.

 

Our free optional meeting is also a perfect way to feel at ease with your booking. It is great to not be strangers on the day, and also this lends itself to brainstorming further little nuances that might work for your day. It is great to meet at your venue, however if this is unable to happen we always make contact with new venues we work at, just to get on first name terms and find out all the details that might be a surprise on the day.

Being able to relax about the booking is the best way to get the most from it. Once you don't have to worry about these stresses we can then spend time getting creative and putting our energy into the ideas rather than the worries.

This takes care of your evening DJ entertainment and the dancefloor lighting. We would set up your Rustic DJ set up just before the evening reception and provide DJ services until the end of the night. Usually this would start when your evening guests arrive however with this package a set up any time after 4pm is available.  This allows enough time to get everything looking perfect and according to plan and then it is time to party!

The lighting we use for our DJ packages is intelligent lighting, so we can have complete control over it via laptop/lighting desk. This allows us to create the perfect feel for the first dance and your photographer does not have to worry about editing flashing lights out of the first dance pictures. With this package our requests cards can used in the downtime when guests are drinking and relaxing before the evening reception starts.

One of the most beautiful details about a barn as a wedding venue is the brickwork. This a defining feature of how personal and unique the barn is. Our bespoke barn lighting is available to highlight the brickwork when the lights go down, so the character of your barn isn't lost. It also gives a dramatic effect to make it a party atmosphere but in a natural and subtle way. The lighting keeps the barn feel, but just adding in that extra spice that is needed at night time! Our lighting units can go any bespoke colour, so there is plenty of room for having an input. Maybe we could match the wedding colours you have chosen? Or maybe favourite colours? It is all doable with this finishing touch service. We offer lighting packages or we can offer a price per unit requested depending on your venue size.

4FT RUSTIC LOVE LETTERS

We offer completely rustic Love Letters. We have two options with this, the first being our 4ft Battery Powered Love Letters. These are free standing and are made out of wood, so they light up but keep a natural and rustic charm. Being battery powered they can easily be moved for photo opportunities and for changes that may occur during the day.  It also means they can be placed anywhere in your chosen venue with no need to worry about electricity. 

We also offer a 4ft Quirky Rustic Love Block. This unlike the letters is one stacked piece, so it can fit into areas where the usual love letters may not. It also comes in at a smaller pricing so it can help with budgets! The main attraction however is the uniqueness of it. This is mains powered but lights up a treat!
