A Kettering DJ company is celebrating after being voted the best wedding DJ service in the world.

Big Bopper Entertainment topped votes to find the best in Kettering, then Northants, before winning the England and finally the international poll, which was run by

Voting was open for a month, and Big Bopper founder Damian Cox – a former environmental warden for Kettering Borough Council – said he received messages from the organisers to update the firm on how it was doing.

Damian, who launched the company in 2006 but who has been DJing since 1997, said: “To win the international one was amazing. We are absolutely chuffed to bits with it – it’s a team award and we have seven DJs.”

He said the reason for the success was to connect with the couples whose weddings Big Bopper Entertainment takes charge of. Damian added: “It’s just putting in that extra bit to make it special.”

He also said the firm’s job was made easier by the quality of local venues it is hired for, including Wicksteed Park and Kelmarsh Hall.

Big Bopper Entertainment plays at about 130 weddings a year, as well as various other local events, and Damian said: “I never thought we would get to the stage we are at now.”
