Wedding 5th April - Highly Recommend!

Craig & I got married on 5th April 2024 and with only 5 weeks to plan our wedding. From start to finish, John was absolutely amazing!! From having a straight forward portal to add music & our plans to the main event. Everything at a wedding has a level of importance but having a DJ that knows how to get people up on the dance floor is what we needed. John went above and beyond for us and it didn’t go unnoticed that he added a couple of extra bits into our package for free ☺️ He kept the wedding evening do alive, took requests (we had requests open) and turned the party up with the tunes we wanted, without actually creating our own playlist, he definitely got the memo! I would highly recommend John and will be booking him again for my 30th next year 😉 & will also tell everyone to do the same! Gutted when the night ended, but until next time 😍🙌 Thank you so much again!

Truly amazing!

I cannot recommend south west discos enough!
John honestly saved the day, after being scammed out of £870 just a month before my wedding It's safe to say I well truly started to stress. Everyone was recommending John and saying how good he was, and they were not wrong!
I booked John and from that moment of booking him he kept in touch, he made me feel at ease as if there was nothing to worry about!
The service he delivered on the wedding day was above and beyond.
The sweet cart and popcorn machine went down a treat!! I went to get some sweet at the end of the night and everything was gone.. not that I'm surprised!
The DJ set up was incredible and John himself was so lovely and down to earth.. He even played a weird request that he had never heard of before for me and my maid of honour when most people have left.. I am sorry for that request it had to be done we love Eminem 🤣!
He also a provided us with a projector which was incredible, very large and clear so my father and daughter dance tribute video played beautifully which meant the world to me. ❤️
I seriously cannot thank John enough, he clearly takes pride in what he does and he does a fantastic job at it!!

Just look at that smile on my face during our first dance and thats down to John for making the evening so enjoyable ❤️

Thank you again John you're a super Star ⭐️🥰 !

Professional entertainment provider

John supplied our wedding with DJ services as part of the gold package at the end of March. He also supplied mood lighting, a sweet cart and table easel. He was very attentive to the venues design and whilst we weren’t a family of dancers he put on an excellent evening of music as per our request. Thanks John!

Incredible!

John provided music all day for our wedding on Saturday 6th April 2024. We honestly could not recommend southwest discos highly enough!
From the minute we booked with southwest discos, John was amazing. Having our own online portal to plan our music for the whole day, made everything so easy. John even put my worrying mind at rest through emails leading up to our wedding day.
John is extremely friendly and constantly kept us both in the loop throughout the whole day and asked us what we want and how we want it throughout each part of our day.
The set up was beautiful and even better than we ever could have dreamed of.
Once again, We really could not recommend southwest disco’s highly enough!!!
A massive thank you to you John for helping to make our special day so beautiful!!

Wow just wow

Well what can I say, Jon dj’d at our wedding and what an amazing night. Jon took the time to listen to our requirements and adhered to them. He was/ is kind and consensus in everything that he does. Our first dance was amazing he waited and kept the crowd dancing until we were ready as we had ran over. Nothing is to much trouble. Would hire again in a heart beat.

Truly Amazing and Saved the Day

We can’t recommend Southwest Discos more! John was amazing and even postponed a trip to Scotland to ensure we had a DJ and other accessories for the wedding. The company who previously owned Southwest Discos lets us down masssively. John stepped in with less than 2 months notice and put on the most amazing set! He was incredibly responsive and the website portal is brilliant! Truly made everything amazing from start to finish!
