Great to see all ages on the dance floor.

Josh was absolutely brilliant. He played all the songs we requested with a mix of classics / family favourites, and even had my Nan on the dance floor at one point! Everyone had a wonderful time & we can’t thank him enough.

Saved the Day!

With our venue closing and our wedding being their last. The lead up was hit with a few hurdles. Josh was amazing! He was able to supply a set of rustic Love letters at short notice, amazing for free as we had been let down. We are truly grateful and did not expect them for free. The night was fantastic, guest were up dancing to a variety of music, some classics which i had forgotten about but remember from my nights out. We cannot fault Josh for the service he provided, the attention to detail and his ability to help our visions come to fruition. We had an amazing time and a great end to our day. You will not be disappointed with his service. Thanks again.

Delivered promises and created a special night for us.

Thank you so much for making our evening so special. Josh was so easy to get on with and always quick at replying to any queries we had. He delivered exactly what he said he would and worked great alongside the Saxophone player we had arranged. Highly recommend for any event or wedding. Thank you!

Awesome supplier and faultless experience.

Me and my Husband and had such a positive experience with Blu Ice, loved aesthetics of the DJ booth! The help support and guidance Josh gave us aswell, he provided fab lighting and atmosphere for our wedding! Josh is super friendly and accommodating, we had some fun surprises planned which Josh was in on and again helped bring to life! We also had our guest book and Photo Booth set up with blue ice and some gorgeous big light up letters for our venue! It was magical! I was dreading our first dance, and actually when it came and the confetti canon went off I was in tear of happiness it was really beautiful!!! Thank you blu ice you were AWESOME

A groomzilla in safe hands with the entertainment.

Firstly respect to you guys for the day job and of course the night job. A huge thanks to Josh! I couldn't fault your support and commitment once we had signed with you for our day. Even with your personal life being a little up and down you remained professional and caring to us too, Josh you made our day easy when I came to the knowing we selected the right DJ and music (Well apart from Peter Andre- but dont tell the wife i said that 🤫) The rustic package fitted in perfectly with our venue, the magic mirror was perfect too and I think what topped it off for us was the chats we had at the end. I would highly recommend blu Ice to everyone I come across. Best of luck with the family and your futures. Tony (Groomzilla 😉) and Katherine.

Recommended to a friend already!

We had such a lovely time and you did a brilliant job so thank you so so much. I’ve also given your website link to a friend who is getting married next year, she was at our wedding and loved your rustic booth and seeing the floor was packed all night. The rustic LOVE letters looked amazing, thank you for being able to fill in short notice, when another supplier let us down, saviour!! We have some great photos from the Magic Mirror, especially the cheeky one you have slipped in of all the ushers, certainly wasn't excepting that one. Thank you again for helping us create such a magic day!

Wedding entertainment made easy.

Would definitely recommend Blu Ice, easy to talk to and very helpful throughout all of the planning. We hired the Magic Mirror for our wedding and everyone absolutely loved it, was such a good night. Josh was very helpful all night and made everyone feel very welcome! Thank you 😊

Most Amazing Party Ever

Could not have wished for better DJ's for our wedding breakfast and reception. Chilled out tunes for our wedding breakfast and the most amazing party in the evening - everyone we have spoken to have said that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Cannot thank Josh and Dan enough for everything that they did for us.
Everything we asked for and more was done.
Do book them with no doubts - you will not regret it.

Brilliant Night!

Thanks guys for a brilliant night! Thanks for the planning before hand for confetti cannon and the entrance for our first dance. The mirror was such fun for our guests and great seeing all the pictures from the evening the next morning at breakfast. Hopefully you didn't get fed up with all the song requests from one particular guest 🤣. Thanks again brilliant service

Could not have asked for a more perfect after-party 😃

I could not have asked for a more perfect after-party and it was all because of Josh and Blu-Ice DJ. When my original choice of DJ had to withdraw 6-weeks before the wedding due to travel costs, I ran around left, right and centre for a solution and Blu-Ice went above and beyond to make that solution happen, and quickly! Josh requested annual leave from his very intensive day-job to fit us in, had the perfect décor package so I didn’t have to hire extras, and Blu-Ice had worked with our venue before (Layer Marney Tower) so they handled everything with the co-ordinator in regards to set-up, their strict confetti rule, and clean-up without neither myself nor my now husband ever needing to lift a finger. He was kind, communicative and on-track (quite literally) through the lead-up to the day and throughout the day itself to the point where it almost seemed suspiciously stress-free. The music was fabulously chosen, flowed seamlessly throughout the night and the atmosphere was beyond anything I could have possibly hoped for. Apologies for the severe delay in telling you so, but thank you so much, Josh. You truly saved the day. And to anyone with any reservation in booking this incredible company, you have no need. Whatever the need, they will not only help, they will exceed your every expectation.
