Whatever event it is you’re planning, I appreciate it needs to be right – you only get one chance to make that happen. Therefore, it is vital you find someone who is as invested in their work and your celebration as you are. It’s paramount that it’s someone that you can work well with and who has a high level of professionalism.
My love of music and fun set me on the path to becoming a DJ and Radio presenter, all the way back when I was just a teenager and played a few songs at a friend’s party on a ghetto blaster!
Having bought some basic equipment I first found work as a DJ at the age of just 16 through an entertainment agency in Manchester. Alongside college where I was studying Lighting and Sound Design, I was working at some of the North West’s most prestigious venues, primarily hosting weddings and corporate events, the most memorable of which was for Kleeneze where over 2000 of their staff packed the ICC in Birmingham – a night I will never forget. After college I decided to follow my interest of being a radio presenter, working on numerous community stations and eventually attending the National Broadcasting School in 2008. From there I worked at Key 103 in Manchester (the very station I grew up listening to!), before venturing across the water to the lovely Isle of Man, an Island I knew very little about! I took to the Manx airwaves as Breakfast Presenter at Energy FM, and after a station change have now come full circle 10 years later to present the 3FM Breakfast Show. As a newbie on the Isle of Man I realised there was a demand for high quality DJ entertainment, so Matt Fletcher Entertainment and Events, the company I thought had left behind in Manchester began once more and soon the diary was filling up fast!
Over the years we have expanded to include venue décor and theme nights alongside my DJ Services. It’s a bold statement but I am the most in demand Wedding DJ on the Island – currently booking events up to two years in advance! I have won the My Manx Wedding award for Best Entertainment – DJ, two years running, something I am very proud of. I also work with some of the Islands biggest companies, be that as event host or DJ or by creating out of this world theme nights, and over the years there have been many! We’ve taken guests into a Winter Wonderland, up the red carpet to a night at the Oscars, in to the world of Game Of Thrones and through the wardrobe to Narnia!
I always tailor each event to the individual and personalise as much as possible, adding or removing things as suits, from the music, to how formal or informal the style of speaking, this means guests will never attend the same event twice.
With a proven track record in weddings and events, let’s work together to bring your ideas to life.
Matt Fletcher Wedding Host & DJ
Why settle for an ordinary DJ on the most important day of your lives?
That’s easy, personalise every part of it!
As your Wedding Host and DJ I can provide peace of mind for the entire day, supplying music from the moment you walk up the aisle through to the last dance of the evening, and also acting as your Master of Ceremonies, ensuring the day runs smoothly, that everyone knows what’s happening, plus adding elements of surprise and building anticipation as to what comes next!
This exclusive service is the result of over 20 years performing at wedding receptions, of seeing how things are done and looking in to how they can be done differently to make your day one to remember! Gone are the days of badly timed music as you walk up the aisle, of guests sat in silence while you sign the register, of your first introduction as a married couple in to your wedding breakfast being nothing more than a brief moment and of guests not being able to hear those much thought about speeches.
With me as Wedding Host and DJ, I’ll ensure all of the above and much much more are as perfect as your chosen dress, suits, cake or decor – it all plays a part in giving you and your guests the perfect day.
Alternatively, you may choose to use my services solely for your evening reception, with this receiving just as much thought as if I were with you for the entire day. We’ll chat about how to make memorable moments for guests just joining you for the night, perhaps by including the ‘Mr & Mrs’ game, I’ll introduce your first dance as a married couple – making sure your nobody misses your much thought about song, and of course add the sound track to get your guests dancing the night away.
Matt hosted a quiz night for us which was a great evening. Professionally ran and a great time was had by all! Highly recommended.

We have worked with Matt and his team a fair few times both professionally, providing same day edits, and attending events where he's either compared or DJ'd. A true gent and a true professional. The same goes for the rest of the team.
