This past summer, Weyburn’s Richy Roy was named the best wedding DJ in the province by the International Wedding Awards. He’s now been named by International Wedding Awards as the best Wedding DJ in Canada.
For Roy, a man of many talents, the role of being a wedding DJ isn’t as simple as many would initially think.
“I don’t work just as a guy who presses play,” he explained. “I do things such as helping coordinate the wedding, plan the wedding, direct the wedding, I’m djing the music, doing emcee details, plus I add my flair of doing some magic and balloon animals during the cocktail hour.”
His clients say what’s separated himself from other DJs is the experiences he creates for wedding attendees, especially for the bride and groom.
“There’s so many wedding professionals, such as photographers that capture the moments in their pictures, or videographers that capture those real-life moments in film, but the DJ is the guy that directs and facilitates for these moments to happen.”
Now that Roy has received the honors of being among the elite when it comes to wedding DJs, he will need to wait to find out where he stacks up in the world. The International Wedding Awards will be presented next June.
