David Marken is a wedding singer and DJ based in Belfast, Co Antrim.

Awarded Best Wedding Entertainment Specialist (UK & Ireland) in the LuxLife Hospitality Awards, 2022.

Planning a wedding can be a lot of work, right? I like to make the entertainment planning as faff-free as possible so you can focus on the most important bit; celebrating! I’ve been performing at weddings and other milestone celebrations since 2015, up and down the UK and all over the world, so I can promise to entertain everyone, even your granny. Whether you like classic hits by Fleetwood Mac and Chaka Khan or modern anthems by the likes of Dua Lipa and George Ezra, my extensive live repertoire is sure to feature tunes that you adore and my DJ sets will have your dance floor full all night long.

Services Offered

From your walk down the aisle to your first dance as newlyweds and onto a DJ set for the evening party, I can accompany every stage of your special day. I even perform with a loop station (think Ed Sheeran-style live recording), so you can get a full band sound with a soloist budget. Every booking includes a professional PA and background music in between live sets.

I have a range of packages available, but the most popular, by far, is the full-day Platinum package. It includes 4 songs (chosen by you) performed live for your ceremony, 2 live sets during the afternoon drinks reception, a live set over the wedding breakfast, your first dance (chosen by you) performed live and followed by a live party set, all topped off with a 4 hour DJ set. Entertainment throughout the entire day from one performer under one (surprisingly cheap!) price.

  • Live wedding ceremony music: Bridal entrance, Signing of register & Newlywed exit
  • Live performance for afternoon drinks reception
  • Live music during the wedding breakfast

The Best Acoustic/DJ performance🎶

David was so lovely and played beautifully. We bought the gold package and so he learnt 5 songs of our choosing. He even allowed my friend to sing whilst he accompanied. In the evening he turned into a DJ so you get the best of both worlds! Highly recommend.🎶

Fantastic Experience!

We were initially talking about an acoustic guitar for the ceremony, possibly some entertainment during dinner and a DJ for the evening and then we found David and his platinum package who does it all! He's a great guy with an amazing voice who can get the party started in the evening. Thoroughly recommend him for any weddings or events.

Best wedding singer I could have asked for.

David is a beautiful, creative, talented professional who really made our wedding day. He was prefect and everyone commented on how great he was. Would recommend without a flicker of contemplation. Wonderful!

Amazing singer and DJ!

David was excellent from start to finish, he was very quick to answer any questions and was super helpful throughout. He learnt a song specifically for my bridal entrance music and our exit music and it was absolutely amazing. He also played in the reception and evening and our guests loved him and we are so happy we picked him for our entire wedding day! Absolutely recommend. Thank you David!

Highly Recommended in Guildford!

We booked David to play during our wedding ceremony and reception, together with DJing during the evening. He responded quickly to any queries we had and was really accommodating to any ideas we had. On the day he was fantastic and read the room incredibly well. He enhanced our day so much. I know lots of our friends and family are now keen to book him!

Amazing for music for whole wedding day

Booking David took all the stress out of the music for our wedding day. He played during the service, the reception, handled the playlist for the wedding breakfast, and then DJ’ed the evening dancing. We sent him our chosen three songs for the service which he learnt beautifully, and then gave a selection of our favourite songs for the other parts so he could personalise it to us. Our guests (and us!) were really impressed by his voice, it made the whole event feel really special. Really recommend David Marken for weddings.

Amazing talent singer who made our day

We had a wonderful day and are so glad that David was a part of that. His singing blended perfectly with the fun relaxed vibe we wanted for our ceremony and reception. We also booked him to DJ and by the end of the night everyone was on the dance floor having a great time!

Wedding in Farnham- June, 2022

I could not recommend David enough. His voice and ability to play a complete mix of songs was amazing. He happily spoke to a few guests who approached him. I would recommend him to anyone who asked me about suppliers for their wedding! Thank you again David.

David made our 50th Wedding Anniversary so special

David did everything asked of him to entertain our guests with his amazing repertoire of songs. He is a very skilful musician who is able to engage the audience, whilst keeping the volume just right so we could still chat and enjoy conversation. A consummate professional, responsive to our wishes and such a lovely man. Our guests were very complimentary and we can’t thank David enough.

Wedding singer

David was brilliant at our recent drinks reception for our wedding. He blended perfectly with the fun, relaxed vibe we wanted to create. Our guests approached us to compliment his voice and talented playing, particularly his John Denver cover. It was a pleasure for him to be included in our special day.

Very professional and friendly.

David sang and DJ'd at our wedding at Foxhills, Surrey. We chose David's platinum service for our day. David was very easy to communicate with and provided very clear guidance on what he was able to provide. He has an extensive repertoire. His setup and performance on the day was very professional. He engaged with our guests and his friendly attitude really helped to make our day that little bit extra special. We would highly recommed David.
