Kind, responsive and expert - guests all loved the party

Tony made a wonderful evening for all of us, including the guests - lots have told us what a great evening it was.
Tony puts time into preparing, talking through our ideas and music suggestions, but also brought his tried and tested features, such as a DJ competition - memorable and photogenic!
On the evening Tony checked the guests from the start to see which music worked. Once the dance floor opened, it was packed until close. He was also a very competent Master of Ceremonies and all key events happened without fuss. Everyone who has spoken to us since has commented on how much they danced. For some it was their first dance after COVID. Some people who said they hadn't danced for decades spent half the night on the dance floor and loved the party.
We really appreciated Tony’s kindness, experience and responsiveness, we felt in good hands and had a wonderful evening. He's recommended!

Superb wedding DJ and excellent support

I really couldn't recommend Tony any higher as a wedding DJ. He stepped in last minute when our original DJ let us down and immediately reassured us, giving us confidence that we were in great hands.

As well as playing great music, expertly reading the crowd and vibes of the evening to keep the dance floor packed, he also gave us lots of more general support. Tony is genuinely a wedding expert and he helped us to think of things and anticipate situations which we may well not of thought of. Things such as the timing of the evening buffet and the best approach to father-bride dance and bride-groom first dance.

A number of emails sent by Tony in the build up let us know that he was on top of things and provided great pointers on various topics (often unrelated to music). For example, one of his emails helped me with the basic structure of my speech as the groom!

Tony tailors his approach to the day to be involved as much or as little as the couple wishes (e.g. providing a full MC service or playing more of a supporting role if the couple are using a friend or relative as MC). Similarly, Tony is happy to take specific steer from the bride and groom on music or to use his experience and discretion if the couple prefer. In our case, we were really keen that Tony take the lead on music - just keep people dancing and happy. He delivered on this in abundance.

Thanks so much for everything Tony. In particular from me; thanks for the nerve settling chat we had immediately before i went up for the ceremony!

Whatever the day a couple is looking for, i honestly don't think they need look any further than Tony.

A Magical, Stress-Free Wedding Experience

My partner and I were on the hunt for a DJ who could provide more than just music for our wedding - we wanted someone who could transform our day into an unforgettable experience. That's when we found Tony Winyard. From our first meeting, Tony's warmth, professionalism, and enthusiasm shone through. He was not just a DJ; he became a pivotal part of our wedding planning.

On the big day, Tony went above and beyond our expectations. His ability to read the crowd and blend a variety of genres kept our guests on the dance floor all night. But what truly set Tony apart was his masterful role as a Master of Ceremonies. He orchestrated the event with such grace and humour, ensuring a smooth flow from one segment to the next. His unique 'Love Story' presentation was a highlight, bringing our journey as a couple to life in a way that was both touching and entertaining.

Tony's attention to detail was impeccable. He coordinated seamlessly with other vendors, making sure everything ran like clockwork. The personal touches he added, from the grand entrance to the customised music selections, made our wedding feel incredibly special and tailored to us.

The feedback from our guests was overwhelmingly positive, many saying it was the best wedding they had ever attended. Tony's commitment to creating a fun, engaging, and stress-free environment was evident throughout. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day, and it was largely thanks to Tony's expertise and dedication. We highly recommend Tony Winyard Entertainment to any couple seeking a truly exceptional wedding experience.

Tony was Brilliant!

Tony was a vital part of making our day wonderful. In the build up to the wedding he offered us excellent advice and used his skills and experience to ensure we had a smooth and fun day. One of the highlights of our day were the introduction for the bridal party and best men and the our love story. Would 100% recommend Tony!

Tony was easily one of our best wedding decisions.

Tony was such a reassuring presence before and during our big day. He's warm, confident and without a hint of arrogance or ego. He was superb and just kept our day running smoothly and our evening party buzzing. I cannot recommend him highly enough. We received loads of lovely comments and feedback. My new wife and I keep saying how lucky we were to secure Tony for our special day.

Superb and made the evening unforgettable

s absolutely amazing and was able to read the room perfectly for our wedding. All we wanted was for people to be dancing all evening, and that definitely happened! I've had so many comments from guests saying how much they enjoyed themselves and how good the music was, I would thoroughly recommend and want to relive the party all over again!

Absolute perfection

ony was absolutely incredible - genuinely better than anything we could’ve asked for. We had half Indian family and half white British and my god the dance floor was never empty.

I can’t tell you how many people have said to me they’ve never danced so much because the music was too good to leave the dance floor.

I’ve even heard my best friend tried her first Indian dance - can’t wait to see that video.

The pictures were an absolute touch.

Can’t thank you enough!!!

Amazing DJ

Tony was absolutely fabulous. If you are seeking a highly skilled DJ look no further.

Tony’s ability to read the room on the wedding day was second to none - and he was able to keep our guests on the dance floor throughout the night, for which we are extremely grateful!

All of Tony’s tips and tricks throughout the planning process were very much appreciated and it felt like he really cared about our wedding day and our guest’s experience.

We will definitely be recommending Tony to all of our friends and family.

Professional and very calm, with great fun and ideas.

Just wanted to leave a message for Tony. Initially our wedding was to take place in April 2020 but for obvious reasons that didn't happen, and after a few date changes we finally got our day in April this year!
Throughout the whole process we found Tony great to work with, we wanted our wedding to be very relaxed, and Tony gave some great ideas to bring a little bit of fun to the day.
The Mr & Mrs game was great fun, as was the DJ battle. The pearls of wisdom cards are also a special touch and a great keepsake.
Music was great and the dance floor was never empty either.
Every single guest kept asking us where we found him as he was brilliant, which is nice to hear your guests have enjoyed themselves.
Tony has a real calm nature which helps on a day that has high expectations by most brides, and I would highly recommend Tony, not just for weddings but for any special birthday/anniversary/engagement party too. Once again thank you Tony, you made our day special. Xx

Best wedding DJ ever!

Tony was super friendly, read the room brilliantly and kept everyone dancing all night! He really put our nerves at ease before the day, and had 1 or 2 brilliant surprises through the night! The dancing was the absolute highlight of the wedding, we couldn’t have been happier!

Would highly recommend

DJ Tony was really helpful from the start. We had an early Zoom call with him and he then provided us with a very user friendly website to upload song choices. He played all the songs we requested and a fantastic set all round. Would highly recommend DJ Tony to anyone else.

So much more than a DJ and master of ceremonies!

Tony is so much more than a DJ and master of ceremonies. He gave us so many ideas about the planning of our Wedding Day and he genuinely wanted our day to be just right for us. His personal touches like telling our love story, games at the tables, Mr & Mrs, and choosing the perfect music for every part of the day really made our day one to remember. His fun and unique approach and the time he puts into making sure everything is exactly right is incredible. Our guests have all commented on how amazing Tony was and he really helped to create the fun and happy atmosphere for our wedding we wanted. He even gave our guests cards to fill out with marriage advice and their best memories of the day which we can save to read on our anniversary - such a lovely touch. We can't recommend him highly enough!

Excellent Wedding DJ

Tony was the DJ at our wedding on 12/06/21. Music is a huge part of my family and I knew I had to get the right DJ and it was causing me lots of anxiety. I spoke with Tony at length about my requirements and our love of different music genres, but particularly reggae.

Tony was so professional and took time to answer my questions and reassure me. I really shouldn't have worried at all because he was honestly amazing. Tony kept everyone on the dancefloor all night from the eldest to the youngest guest. We had so many compliments about our wedding DJ and even now people still say that it was the best DJ they have heard at any wedding.

I would 100% recommend Tony, he is professional, friendly, reliable and he, takes time to get to know you both as a couple and he has a wide knowledge base across all music genres.
