A little about Mark

Black Tie Events’ Mark Girdwood’s career started with DJing in the inner Melbourne Pubs and Clubs after taking a break from his audio career at Channel 7, where he’d been working on variety TV shows and drama. Mark then branched into commercial radio broadening his skills working both on air and programming music. Mark’s 15 year on air radio career included, amongst other great radio stations, Melbourne’s Hot Hit 3XY.

Wedding DJ MC Melbourne

The spontaneity of reading the room, reaching people of all ages by playing great music of all genres, creating energy and atmosphere on the dance floor, is inspiring and why we do it!

We love running a well-controlled room that's light hearted and fun, giving the bride and groom a relaxing, happy celebration!

“Black Tie Events provided us with an amazing Dj service at our wedding. Mark met with me prior to the wedding as I was very specific in what I wanted. Mark went above and beyond to ensure that he understood exactly how our day was to look like. He was completely thorough in making sure he knew everything he needed to know. The music was incredible and kept everyone on the dance floor the entire evening. I knew Mark had it covered the entire night. Music is so important to me so I thank you Mark for providing the ultimate touch to the most important day in my life”.

“We honestly could not have picked a better DJ/MC for our wedding! Mark from Black Tie Events was absolutely fantastic! He was kind, friendly, charismatic, professional and so well organised. If it were not for him our wedding reception would have been a complete mess. When our reception venue didn’t have an event manager and was being so terrible with timing, Mark stepped in and made sure everything went to plan, we can’t thank him enough for the effort he put into making the whole night run smoothly. When everyone was sitting down to dinner he built the perfect atmosphere with happy but relaxing music, then he managed to get everyone on the dance floor and played the best mixture of hits when it was time to party, he read our crowd so well! We had so many compliments from our friends and family as to what a great job Mark did. I highly recommend Mark’s services to any bride and groom to be who are struggling to find the right entertainment for their wedding. He truly was a godsend, thank you Mark! :)”.
