We cannot recommend Luke D highly enough - he was DJ at our wedding, playing music throughout the reception, ending in two and a half hours on the dance floor - and I feel very smug to say he's the best DJ I've ever seen/heard at a wedding - the dance floor was full the entire time - perfect mix, perfect balance, brilliant tune after brilliant tune, great lights and sound. And Luke himself was ideal to work with - very friendly and communicative via emails beforehand, he arrived in good time and set up with ease, he was polite and a great presence at the wedding. Honestly, your search is over - hire this guy!!!!!

"We chose Luke to be the DJ at our wedding. We are both in our 60s so we were apprehensive as to whether a DJ of a younger age group would get the music and tone of the evening right, especially as we consider that the main feature of a good party is the music. Luke's CV on the Alive website seemed to suggest that he is open to many different types of music, mentioning 60s for example, so we thought we would try him. I sent him ideas of music which we thought might work and music that we particularly wanted to include, which is ska and reggae, and also details of our first dance which involved some staging and synchronisation of the music with actions; I also wanted to DJ myself by introducing a short set of African music, but with Luke playing the tracks via his equipment. So we were perhaps demanding customers! I met him and gave him a memory stick with the music we particularly wanted for these 'fixed' moments. After this meeting I felt very confident that he would do a good job as he was professional and clearly knew his business.
This confidence was not misplaced; in every way he was excellent on the night; he arrived punctually, set up quickly, looked the part, and carried out the first dance scenario and the African music flawlessly. He got everyone dancing- there were mixed ages- right through to the end, midnight, and the sound quality was very good as was the lighting rig, and usefully he has a wireless mic which we used to e.g. give a speech before cutting the cake. So technically, very good; but also we felt that he was sensitive and attentive; he looked interested in the speeches, he gauged the mood of the crowd well and seamlessly changed music if something wasn't working and was a real pleasure to work with. All guests we spoke to praised him highly; my daughter said that he was good because he did not put his ego forward , which is obviously not the case with all DJs! we felt that we had a personal service from him in that he provided a special occasion for us, not an 'off the peg' wedding experience, and this is the highest praise we can give him."

"Having Luke as the DJ for our wedding was one of the best decisions we made for our day. He was absolutely amazing. Correspondence with him was easy and he was helpful in answering all our questions. On the day he turned up on time and set up really discreetly considering there were so many lights and things. It was great.
In the end we sent him two playlists - a small selection of songs we definitely wanted to hear and another larger set that we'd like to hear but also gave him an idea of what music we like. He played all of our favourite songs and quite a few off our second list, but he also threw in some absolute belters we hadn't thought of but absolutely loved hearing. He was also adaptable - when all the boys went out to smoke cigars and the girls were on the dance floor he played 'girls just want to have fun'. It was hilarious and so well timed.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Luke, and already have - lots of my friends were asking about where to book him!"

I honestly can't thank Luke enough, he was a perfect wedding DJ for us! Myself and my husband are perfectionists and we honestly can't fault him! He played songs to suit everybody and was more than happy to take requests and everybody commented on how lovely and professional he was and of course on the brilliant tunes he was playing all night, there was always loads of us on the dance floor! He was also so helpful with everything prior to the day too, we owe him a massive thank you as well for sorting our first dance song so last minute. Can't recommend highly enough!!

What can i say? Luke really made the evening part of our wedding. I can't thank him enough. We created a playlist of songs we wanted and Luke managed to play every single one, whilst mixing the songs to keep the party vibe going. He was polite and didn't even wince at the prospect of a demanding wedding couple who had a very clear idea of songs we wanted. One of a kind guy, friendly, affordable and actually great to chat to. He brought all the kit and our guests had a fantastic time. We had lots of comments on how good the music was. I highly recommend Luke for any occasion and wouldn't think twice booking him again in the future.
