    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.

    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.

    Talented and Professional

    Even though our venue didn’t allow dancing inside, Anthony made sure that guests were entertained and he really kept the energy up with games and excellent music. He made sure he knew the vibe and style of my wedding (including my own taste) and made the day and evening so fun!

    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.

    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!

    Thoroughly recommended!

    Tony was Master Of Ceremonies and DJ for our beautiful wedding at the Mayfair Hotel last week.

    Tony's production values, from the lighting, wedding party intro speeches (you have to do this if you are planning a wedding, they were amazing!), music during the ceremony and throughout dinner and the party were absolutely first-class.

    Tony is a goldmine of information for couples planning their marriage, not least from a musical point of view but also with tips and coaching for speeches, decor, the party (the dancefloor props were a real winner, everyone loved them).

    Everything surpassed our expectations and really, I have never known better service, value and reliability from an entertainer and host.

    The best DJ

    Anthony kept us dancing all night and we are all still talking about the wedding and how much we loved it. Family and friends are still commenting on how brilliant the music was and how it flowed seamlessly from one song to the next! We couldn't have asked for a better DJ. We just wish we could have carried on dancing for longer!

    Tony is a differant kind of wedding DJ

    From the moment we met with him to discuss our day to the day itself, Tony had tips and tricks to help us think about and plan out our day to make it memorable. We opted for the DJ and Master of Ceremonies package as we wanted our wedding party to enjoy the day and not have to run around and do things for us. We couldn't have chosen a better person for the job!!

    As part of Tony's service you have access to an online account where you can start to plan your music for the various parts of the day and he has a fab list of automated emails scheduled for the right times leading up to your wedding to ensure no stone goes unturned.

    We used a few of his ideas from the introductions of the wedding party for the wedding breakfast to the Facebook group for song requests for the evenings disco. Both these in particular were a huge hit with our guests and the atmosphere never dipped once during the day.

    As a bride i never felt pestered - Tony made it his mission to get to know all the key people in the wedding party and other vendors and leading up to the day we had a Skype call to go over the final details.

    I would recommend Tony to anyone getting married and likes to through in fun ideas to help their day go perfectly.

    We cannot recommend Tony highly enough

    We cannot recommend Tony highly enough, from our first meeting with him we knew we had found the best DJ and to top it all he also won the award for UK Wedding DJ of the year 2015/16! Tony has literally thought of everything when it comes to wedding entertainment. From the icebreakers for the guests to games for the bride and groom. Tony is also a toastmaster and his love story is a great touch, he is professional behind the mic and behind the decks. Everybody was dancing all night and he provided us with some great Bollywood tunes for our Asian guests! He is amazing and will plan everything with you in detail, his online system is simple to use as well. Thanks again for a great day!

    Full of ideas

    Tony justified his Wedding DJ of the year award from the very first he was full of ideas on how to make the day better from simple MC to games and the Love Story although it wasn't really for us it would appeal to first timers I am sure. He interfaced very well with the band and he did his job diligently and unobtrusively. At all times he sought to please and do the best for us to make our special day work. Job done!

    Tony is the Ultimate wedding DJ

    We are very happy with Tony as our wedding DJ and he provided a great service as MC and DJ on the day, so much so that a guest asked if he was our friend. Tony worked well with us in the run up to the event to understand our wishes and preferences and he was very helpful in giving us lots of additional tips and ideas which were very helpful. Tony really does know weddings inside out and we could see why he is so highly rated. He's not cheap but ultimately his professionalism and experience make him very worth it. We would recommend him without hesitation.

    Party Over Here!

    From the moment we met Tony we knew we had found the right wedding DJ. Being a DJ myself and having attended many weddings over the years I knew how important the entertainment was. Tony did not disappoint, we had Indian guests that had travelled especially for the wedding and they loved the fact we had Bhangra and Bollywood tunes. It was a very inclusive wedding and the added extras worked really well. Everybody was on the dancefloor all night and he organised our guests and kept them informed of what was happening when. A great host, fantastic DJ and so easy to work with! Highly recommend!

    More than just a DJ.

    We booked Tony for our wedding on 11th June 2015 and purchased the all day package so he produced the music for the wedding ceremony right up until the end of the night. Tony is more than just a DJ - he's your toast master/wedding planner/general on hands guy on the day. He goes above and beyond in helping to ensure your day runs smoothly without a hitch. He had some fantastic ideas which were different to the norm such as the pearls of wisdom cards and Mr and Mrs game. I would highly recommend Tony, he's an absolute pleasure to be around, he is very professional, he knows his music and how to get the crowd going. Thanks so much Tony!! xx

    Brilliant wedding DJ

    We booked Tony for our wedding on 22 Aug 2015 - and we are so glad that we did! We live in Dubai but our wedding was in London - so we were expecting the organising to be quite stressful. Tony was very happy to Skype ua and go through every detail of what he could offer us, as well as getting to know us as a couple. After booking Tony, we found his online site very easy to use and had great fun selecting our tracks! a few weeks before the wedding we met Tony in person and he totally out as at ease - and even had helpful tips for the wedding day itself e.g how long it would take people to take their seats for dinner, which we really appreciated. On the night Tony was great - there was a full dancefloor from start to finish and he was able to keep all of our varied wedding guests happy - playing everything from soca to 80s classics. We would highly recommend booking Tony for any wedding or party and wouldn't hesitate to use him again.
