Dj karlton is 10/10

DJ Karlton took our wedding to new heights within minutes of his arrival! We cannot recommend him enough. If you’re looking for a DJ who is easygoing and can read a room like no one else, you HAVE to book DJ Karlton! His commitment to his craft is clear as our dance floor was NEVER empty at any point during his visit to us. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’s just isn’t enough 🙌🏼

More than Helpful, Flexible and fun

Karlton was the DJ at our wedding in July 2023 and was great from the beginning, and even took pictures of some of our dancing and uploaded it afterwards for us. He was punctual, had a review of our playlists before and seamlessly mixed tracks together and took note of the audience, and even did well mixing Iranian & British music together!

Amazing Dj

Karlton read the evening perfectly and kept the dance floor full start to finish. He had everyone up on the dance floor from our grandparents to a fabulous indie disco at the end of the evening. We all had such a great evening so much so I didn’t want to leave the dance floor!
Thank you for making our evening so fantastic! We would 100% recommend ;)

Book book book!!!

My husband and I had DJ Karlton at our wedding at Pendrell Hall in November. He was absolutely fantastic! Before the music started, he came and introduced himself, which I found extremely respectful. We sent Karlton a playlist of music prior to the wedding and he 100% listened to what we wanted. He captured the mood of the room and knew what to play and when to keep everyone on the dance floor. I am not normally one for dancing, but I did not sit down once all night. I cannot recommend Karlton enough and would definitely use him again for any events in the future. From start to finish he has been professionally and responsive and has even sent us some lovely pictures of our wedding. Thank you Karlton for a memorable day😊

Perfect- highly recommended

We hired Karlton as the DJ for our wedding last weekend and the experience was wonderful from start to finish. His communication from the start was excellent - he listened and understood what we wanted and always responded promptly to emails. On the day he was punctual, professional and fun. He had people dancing all night and our guest commented on the quality of the music and how great Karlton was. We also hired the magic mirror which we all loved. Thanks for helping make our day special.

Epic, made our day complete.

Karlton and Martin were amazing.
Karlton was able to read the room, change the music to keep people dancing. He played a great range of genres as well. He was also like having a night photographer
Martin was so fun on the magic mirror. Always keen to help and multitasking to the max.
It made our day finish with a bang!

Amazing and accomondating.

DJ Karlton had our guests dancing all night long. We are a couple with a love for rock and metal so, we were very happy when DJ Karlton played the end of the evening out with some of our personal favourites. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a DJ.

Brilliant and Essential

We were only going to have a small quiet wedding without a DJ. However, after looking though some DJ's we found DJ Karlton and decided to give it a go and boy we did not regret it! We created a playlist with a strange and eclectic range of music and DJ Karlton tailored the night to suit us and our guests perfectly. He knew just what to play and when to keep the party going, we even got plenty of bonus dancing party photos of everyone enjoying themselves. Absolutely brilliant, thank you very much for a great night!

In a word ‘Fantastic’

From our very first contact Karlton was amazing. He was super helpful and accommodating. On the night, he was superb, lovely background music during dinner then, wow what a party, he was feeding from the crowd and the crowd from Karlton. The atmosphere for our party was electric and the dance floor was full all night. Karlton helped us celebrate our special day and make it memorable not just for us but our guests too. Thanks Karlton!!!.

Wedding DJ

Couldn't have asked for a better DJ. Martin was excellent.
Had people on the dance floor from the start until the end.
Everyone we have spoken to since the wedding has said how good the DJ was.


Thank you

Wedding DJ? Look no further!

Choosing a DJ for our wedding was one of the biggest decisions for us supplier wise, after all, the party side of a wedding is one of the best parts!
After our initial consultation and phone call with Karlton, I knew he was the right choice for our wedding. From the start, his communication was 5*, responding to emails promptly and answering any questions we had. The week before the wedding we had a phone call to discuss finer details surrounding our first dance song etc. which he was more than happy to do.
On the day itself, Karlton arrived in good time to set up, he was very friendly and approachable. He introduced himself to my Husband & I, even to the other suppliers and venue owners.
Karlton asked us to put a Spotify playlist together before the wedding for him to gain an understanding on what kind of music we would like played. I was worried about this as I thought he was just going to go from the music we suggested on the playlist…however this wasn’t the case at all. Karlton read the room perfectly, the dance floor was full the whole night! In fact, we even cheered for ‘one more song’ at the end at 1am.

Catching up with family and friends after our wedding, we had so many positive comments about the music. We had a lot of different music tastes in one room amongst our guests which we were nervous about, but somehow he managed to cater for everyone, all ages and genres.

In addition, we also opted for his rustic rig and rustic love letters to compliment our venue decor and it did perfectly!

Overall I couldn’t recommend DJ Karlton enough, putting faith in someone for your wedding party’s success was a big deal for us, and he did not disappoint!

Amazing DJ!

Karlton was our DJ at our wedding on 01/08/23 after originally booking him in 2018 for our 2020 wedding that was postponed and carried over our date for us to our new date and we're so glad he did. Karlton was so helpful in the run up to the wedding and was brilliant on the day. He even helped to co-ordinate a surprise entrance for some storm troopers we had hired for the evening of our wedding and worked so well with the other suppliers on the day to ensure this ran smoothly. Would highly recommend!
