You have to book these guys - we had a blast!

10/10 would recommend this supplier - our DJ Iain Baker was such an integral part of our wonderful wedding and it just would not have been the same without him! His knowledge and experience helped us pull together an incredible day of music, fun and games which we will never forget and could not have conceived of ourselves. Iain was with us all day, smoothly managing all the music during the ceremony and drinks, being a charismatic and memorable master of ceremonies, then putting on the best disco either of us have ever been to.

Iain provided a smooth and responsive service in relation to ceremony music, which gave us more options than we ever would have had with a CD/spotify playlist - when the Bride was late, Iain padded things out with tracks that got everyone in the mood for the wedding before switching back to the planned music when she finally showed up!

By the end of the evening Iain had gone from being a supplier to being part of the wedding party. I've never been sadder to say goodbye to someone!

The wedding chaps are a group of DJs who have banded together to share their experiences and knowledge in order to produce top quality wedding entertainment. These guys are way more than just DJs - we went into our first meeting looking for a cheap DJ for the evening reception, and walked out having booked Iain for the entire day, just on the strength of his personality and ideas - he got us so excited for our wedding. If the other wedding chaps are anything like Iain, which I'm sure they are, do not hesitate to book them.

All the additional extras were great value for money and really landed with our guests - all they've spoken about since was how great the disco was, how much fun they had with the inflatable guitars and hats, and how much they enjoyed games such as 'Wed I Lie to You'.

The Wedding Chaps are so experienced and have such an array of ideas, tricks, gimmicks and novelty that you will elevate your big day from a staid, ordinary wedding into a showstopping event that your friends and family will never forget!

Couldn't recommend enough

We cannot recommend Iain enough - he sorted the music for our ceremony, wedding breakfast and all evening, as well as being toastmaster throughout the day. Super professional and friendly, and everything was perfect. Especially recommend the DJ battle - which was not only a highlight for us but for the guests too!

Paul & The Chaps brought the magic to the whole day!

Paul was truly fantastic from start to finish. We met him at our local wedding fair and he took the time to explain what he could do for us to help make our wedding memorable and really set up how he worked, how the initial meetings work etc...

I can wholeheartedly recommend them because of their attention to detail. Most DJ's wont meet with you until a few weeks to a month before the wedding. Paul met with us several times during the entire planning process, even taking the time to come with us to the venue and get to know the layout, the systems and the staff to make the setup on the day easier. These meetings, along with their meticulous planning process (which was a lot of fun) meant he got to know us as a couple and what we wanted from our day, meaning he could make our visions reality. It also gave us plenty of time to get to know Paul as well and how he worked.

On the day itself, Paul was prompt to arrive and set up, able to adapt to changes that took place on the day (changes to people / timings) and kept the atmosphere at the right level and pace throughout the full day. Most venue DJ's only work the evening reception but having him there the full day got our guests comfortable talking with him and able to make requests, and likewise Paul was able to really gauge the mood and vibe when lining up the tracks. The dancefloor stayed full all night and all of our guests commented that Paul was fantastic.

Cannot recommend Paul and the Chaps enough. Book them for the full day of your wedding, engage with them fully during the planning, then just sit back and enjoy as your day comes to life with them! He really made things easy for us and kept the day moving smoothly.

Amazing, outstanding & fun

Iain Dj'd for our wedding this weekend. We booked him to cover the full day, and boooy did he come through!
Throughout all of the planning all the way until the end of the night, we were extremely confident in our choice of DJ.
Not only did he play amazing music but he always made us feel that we werent just another customer. He is very caring and wants to get everything perfect. The extra thoughts and ideas he brought to the table to make the day extra magical for us were awesome.
Even got a cool canvas too 😁
10000% recommending the wedding chaps to everyone at any moment I can.
Thank you so much Iain 🤗💜
From the Viking tribe 🤣

Amazing Night!

Great experience from start to finish! We particularly loved the DJ battle as bride and groom, not entirely sure how I won as the groom’s songs were so much better! We loved our first dance moment and can’t help looking back at the photos and videos.

Thank you for a fantastic night, it is one that we will never forget 🥂

Out of this world!!

A massive shoutout to Harry at the Wedding Chaps. From our first meeting to Harry taking our survivors photo at the end of our wedding. The whole process was so fun and easy!

Filling out the workbook was so much fun and gave me and my husband the time together to sit down and have a music session on what music we liked and didn’t like. The book also gave us new ideas that we did at our wedding like the Mr and Mrs game, the booze toss and cutting our cake with a sword! Harry was so easy to get in touch with if we needed anything and no question was a stupid question!

We had a final meeting with Harry that helped a lot as well with any last minute questions we had!

The day of the wedding Harry came up to us to say that the reception was all set up and brought us in to see it before anyone else! We had so much fun and Harry made the crowd go wild!! No amount of thank yous will ever be enough for what you did for us!!

We cannot wait to see our survivors photo!

Thank you Harry, you are a legend!!

Harry Kilb - Man, DJ, Legend

Where do I start? We had the absolute pleasure of Harry being the DJ for our wedding at Winters Barns. The whole experience was so easy, stress free and can only be described as going above and beyond. Harry invited us to his address for a meeting and gave us a helpful booklet containing great wedding ideas and music genres. Our personal favourite was the DJ battle, which I would recommend to everybody! We were so impressed by Harry during our meeting that we asked him to be present all day to ensure the music helped keep an atmosphere. Harry maintained contact leading up to the wedding and he clearly reviewed our completed booklet and tailored the music throughout the whole day as per our wishes. Harry mixed some music together for the DJ battle and created some fantastic posters which he put up around the venue during the wedding breakfast. It went down a treat and our guests have been commenting for weeks now about how great Harry was.

Harry you are a legend and I couldn't recommend him enough for anybody looking for an all day DJ. A master of your trade, but more importantly a really nice person. Thank-you for everything Harry and the Wedding Chaps!

Iain fit in so well with our wedding and was the perfect DJ!

Thank you to Iain at the wedding chaps for being so on it at our wedding! Iain arrived in plenty of time to set up our selfie wizard, which went down a hit with almost 200 photos uploaded! The music was absolutely flawless and everything we asked for. The dance floor almost always had someone dancing on it, especially as the night went on. We couldn’t be more happy to recommend Iain and the selfie wizard!

Bloomin brilliant!

We loved the wedding chaps! We got married 21/10/2023 at winters barns, Canterbury and the music played was perfect!!! Iain had read our booklet and gave us the perfect music to celebrate our marriage! I requested songs I hadn’t put in the booklet and he played them, he didn’t talk too much which was requested (sorry Iain nothing against you haha) and I genuinely loved our party! Absolutely book the wedding chaps

OMG fantastic

Harry kilb!!! What an amazing man. We had him for our toastmaster/dj but he was so so much more. Took every stress off of us and help and guided us the whole day from start to the survivors left on dance floor at the end. We can not recommend him/wedding chaps enough.

Paul was amazing!

Paul was blooming amazing, best decision we made having him at our wedding all day. Everyone commented to us what a great DJ/Master of Ceremonies he was.

Paul listened to everything we wanted and more. He understood when we said we wanted a relaxed party atmosphere with lots of laughter. I will never forget him convincing one of our tables to do a pyramid for the photo dash! He made sure our tables brought the competition!!

We had a couple of meetings with Paul leading up to the wedding and he provided a fantastic book for us to complete to help plan every music element of the day. He was so friendly and enthusiastic to make our day the best it could be. He also offered lots of great additional extra (some were even free) to make the day a bit more special, I really recommend the mood lighting!

Paul we cannot thank you enough, I think our survivor photo you took at the end of the night goes to show what a great atmosphere you created!

DJ of dreams!

Harry was amazing!
We had Harry from The Wedding Chaps as our DJ for our wedding at Winters Barns, he was so attentive and gave us lots of ideas for fun extras to add to our evening.
We had a Mr and Mrs game and he brought us into the dance floor first to check everything was ok and asked us what the first song to play should be after the first dance - Harry was lovely and knowledgeable and we got so many compliments on our music and party of our wedding!
Thank you Harry for making our wedding one to remember! ☺️

Fantastic DJ, everyone loved him!

We were so happy to have Harry DJ at our wedding last week. Our guests are still talking about how good he was! As a supplier he was so responsive and sent us a helpful booklet to set out exactly what we wanted with a huge selection of songs to choose from. We also included up lighting and garden games which went down really well! He set up with no bother to us and honestly it is a big weight off a married couple’s mind to leave the DJ to set up and be absolutely perfect. Our first dance was Take That’s Rule the World and only when I look back on the pictures have I seen what Harry had done with the up lighting - it’s these touches that really made our wedding and cannot thank Harry enough!
