Your wedding day will undoubtedly remain one of the most important days of your lives. Therefore, you should expect nothing less than a DJ that appreciates the importance of delivering a first class service.
Music for your day is the final delivery. A well-executed event is all in the preparation.
DJ Private Pickle has been in client services throughout his entire professional career. Before becoming a full time professional DJ, he spent 6 years at a top tier investment bank within operations. He has collectively spent 4 years within hospitality as a special functions headwaiter in the UK and cellar door & restaurant assistant manager here in Western Australia. This naturally results in a methodical, organized and impeccably delivered experience all coated in a fun, friendly and stress free persona.
Don’t take my word for it though… why not have a free of charge initial consultation to get a feel for me first hand and check out some testimonials at the bottom of the page..?
My wedding package includes the following:
- Initial and final consultations
- Unlimited email and/or phone support
- Full industry standard PA system (further details below)
- Full professional DJ booth
- Mood lighting for the dance floor
- 2x professional cordless microphones for MC and speech requirements.
Generally, most wedding receptions will last for 6 hours, commencing after the wedding ceremony. Get in touch for a package price.
I can also accommodate music and microphones for the ceremony and/or pre-reception drinks/canapés.
For any other non-standard requests, please don’t hesitate to get in contact to discuss.
Music is my passion. The equipment in which that music is delivered is equally as important. In my opinion, sub standard equipment is not an option for any event, gig or function. Therefore, I only use the highest performance industry equipment.
• 2x Turbosound iQ12’s
• 1x Turbosound iQ10
• Allen & Heath AH-ZEDi10FX Mixer
• 2x AKG WMS40 Cordless Microphones
All three Turbosound speakers have an incredible 2500w of power. This combined with the 12 inch low frequency driver on the two iQ12’s means that a sub-woofer is not required in the majority of normal set up scenarios.
The Turbosound speakers also have a feedback cancellation feature which helps eliminate any unwanted feedback from microphones.
The slightly smaller third speaker in the set up allows music projection from alternative angles in large spaces i.e. either end of a large room. This provides a surround sound ambient feel at lower non-abrasive volumes.
The two AKG cordless microphones facilitate single or duo use allowing multiple speakers to move freely around your reception as they deliver throughout the evening.
“The 2,500-Watt iQ12 is a powered two-way loudspeaker ideally suited for a wide range of portable and fixed installation, music and speech sound reinforcement applications. Equipped with a very efficient and lightweight two channel KLARK TEKNIK Class-D power amplifier, the iQ12 provides an impressive 2,500 Watts of output power. A high degree of control over the loudspeaker system’s performance is managed by a sophisticated, but easy to use KLARK TEKNIKKLARK TEKNIK Digital Signal Processor (DSP), which provides dynamic EQ for remarkable full range response at low volume levels, and transparent limiting for the utmost clarity at high output levels – and long-term reliability. iQ12’s advanced DSP speaker modelling presets include detailed and accurate models of some of the audio industry’s most-respected loudspeakers.”
Music for a wedding day has to be dynamic. It has to be both easy listening and energetic. It must warm the dining service and heat up the dance floor whilst transitioning through the tastes of your guests, which will likely include a blend of eras and styles. Therefore, in my experience, the most conducive method is a well-structured collaboration between the wedding couple and the DJ.
My ‘Wedding Information Form’ is the bridge between your knowledge of the guests and my delivery of the music composition. Once your booking is secured, you will receive my Wedding Information Form. It will not only guide you through my full service but allows me to delve into your musical tastes through a multitude of simple answer questions. This process provides me with a basis to get to know you and your guests as best as possible in conjunction with our consultations so that I can showcase the music that is important to you on your day.
With over 19 years of DJing experience and a current professional offering that spans across various venues, festivals, events and weddings, reading a crowd is at the core of my performing skill set. You can feel confident that my deep music folders along with our collaboration will allow me to glide through the evening energising your guests at just the right times to crescendo the dance floor into a finale of smiles, sweat and cheers.
Investing in the best equipment empowers me to offer the best service. Included in my wedding package is an industry standard DJ booth. It is portable and easy to set up. It can be dressed in either black or white linen if you do have a preference. By design the booth conceals the majority of my equipment and connecting leads so that the entirety of your venue including the DJ set up is a spectacle.
“Get to know the stakeholders in your wedding day” is often a comment among industry professionals. You want to be sure the right fit team is there to deliver you all the elements of a perfect day.
As part of my initial quote and consultation process, I insist on having a call, Facetime, Skype or face-to-face meeting with you. I want you to be both comfortable and confident in my approach to organising the delivery of your wedding music. I also want to ensure that what I offer is the best match for your desired style of evening.
From the point of securing my services, you have unlimited phone or email support as we approach your big day.
Once I receive back a completed ‘Wedding Information Form’ and have reviewed the content, I will then arrange a final consultation with you both to go over any outstanding points and take the opportunity, if not done so already, to meet you both in person. If feasible, I like to have this consultation at the wedding venue so we can discuss the layout and set up logistics for the day.
Please use the contact page on this website to send me through an enquiry. If possible please include your desired wedding date, venue and DJ hours required so that I can quote accordingly. I will look to reply to you as soon as possible.
Look forward to meeting you both!
“My husband and I hit things off with Rob right from the first catch up and soon after chatting about our favourite music we realised that our wedding had funk, disco theme to it, which we then tailored our entire wedding around. We loved how much Rob embraced this on every level and his energy and passion he brought meant that the dance floor was packed literally all night!!! Thanks so much Rob for making the best night of our lives!”
Tess + Rod
“We were delighted by the care and effort, by Rob, that went into planning our night. Rob met us very early on and was open to listening to the style of wedding we wanted. There was nothing ‘cookie cutter’ about the tunes that DJ Private Pickle spun on the night as the cool house tracks made it a night to remember. People we spoke to after said they had never heard such a phenomenal wedding mix!”
Kel + Brad
“Robert had such a professional approach to our wedding. He came organised with documents and was very easy to contact with any questions. He went over and beyond in scoping out the venue with us before the wedding to ensure everything went to perfection, and it really did. The energy in the room on our wedding night was so high and everyone had a blast dancing the night away. Thanks heaps Rob, would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends getting married that way.“
Ankita + Brendan
“Private pickle was the DJ at our wedding in October . He was excellent from start to finish. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed his music & was full of praise for him. We met Rob for coffee a couple of months before our day so he knew exactly what we wanted. He was extremely professional and organised. Every song he played the dance floor was crowded so the whole night it was all about the music. Highly recommended. Well done & thank you “
Bret + Jamie
“We were so lucky to have Private Pickle for our beachfront wedding reception. We had an intimate wedding, and our guests had diverse, unique music tastes. Robert gave us as much or as little input as we needed (though I would recommend that you trust his judgement), and mixed everything perfectly on the night. The music for canapés on the deck was chilled and our guests raved about how perfect the ambience was. He read the room perfectly, and we had a full dance floor all night and everyone got to get up for something they loved. Robert was a pleasure to deal with and we couldn’t recommend him more highly.”
Natalie + Eric
“From the first email enquiry and the first meeting, we knew that you were the right fit for us. We were impressed with your professionalism and how meticulous you were with the planning that we knew you would deliver the goods, and deliver the goods you did!! The dance floor was on the minute our first dance ended to the very last song of the night. We got so many ‘complaints’ about sore knees from our guests the next day which is a pretty good sign there was a lot of dance floor action. Thank you so much for making our night so fun!”
Ling + Richard
”We could not recommend DJ Pickle enough, he was so professional and very easy to work with. At one stage I looked back at our tables and every single guest was on the dance floor. So many guests after the wedding said how good the music was and how much fun they had dancing the night away, it was such an awesome night, Thanks again!”
Lauren + Hilly
“The music was absolutely pumping from the first dance, and I (the bride) didn’t leave the dance floor once. Not only does Rob know how to keep everyone on the dance floor, and having a great time while they are at it, but his service is second to none. He not only went to great lengths to work out what music would work well for us and our gusts, but also took the time to meet up with us beforehand. He is friendly, professional and a fantastic DJ.”
Natalie + Malcom
“I had great faith in Rob right from the very first phone call, his professional approach, enthusiasm and energy said everything, which continued through every correspondence that we had, so I never doubted for a minute that our wedding reception was going to be anything except a fabulous party. Rob tailored the music so that everyone enjoyed themselves, we equally enjoyed Rob enjoying what he was doing too.
You came and left without a minutes interruption to our own busy preparations, but we felt like you were one of our great friends when we said goodnight to you. Thank you, you are a Super Star!”
Annie + John
We had been looking for a DJ for some time and stumbled across “DJ Private Pickle” instantly we thought, we have to meet this guy! So upon arranging a meeting with Robert we where greeted with such a laid back warm welcoming attitude which was so refreshing. Any one organising a wedding will know that at times it can be quite stressful trying to make everything perfect. Robert made sure we were relaxed and helped us to put together exactly what we wanted for our wedding. Not once did we feel “out of control”.
Once again we thank Robert from the bottom of our hearts. We have made a friend that will be a part of lives forever. “
Rihana + Luke
“From beginning to end Rob was a perfect professional. The information he gathered pre wedding was extensive but ensured he had an exact idea of what he wanted and we knew exactly what we’d be getting…. which was an incredibly fun guy, who LOVES music and loves to make the occasion special. Rob is talented but more than that he understand customer service and the complexities of organising a wedding. He was a pleasure to deal with and a super lovely guy! The dance floor was packed all night and he chose us the most perfect song for the end of the night. What a party!!!”
