We got married on 6th June at the pavilion in Prestbury and Will was an integral part of our wedding day!
We met with him before the wedding and he spent time getting to know what we wanted out of our day and our music tastes, and he got it so right.. The music was amazing and got us up and dancing, he even managed to win my now husband around to having an unplanned first dance.
He was part of the wedding and a genuine
guest as well as our DJ, I would recommend
Will to anyone for any occasion and really
hope I have reason to have a party
and hire him again.
Friday night was amazing, thank you Will. Everyone very much enjoyed the music, and were dancing away. Certainly a great DJ who interacted very well with everyone and played some great tunes!

We were truly thankful to have Will as our DJ at our wedding at Dumbleton Hall; he was simply incredible & not just on the night, but throughout the build up to our special day.
Will was always quick to respond to any questions we had & was always available at the end of the phone or via email.
Will met us a month before the wedding to discuss the evening and song choices. This meeting gave us a great chance to talk about the tracks which really meant something to us.
The day couldn’t have gone any better & the best part of the day for us was seeing so many friends and family on the dance floor having a great time. We've been to weddings where the dance floor has been empty, & we were slightly worried this may happen, especially as the weather was so nice. But, from the first dance onwards the dance floor was packed & everybody enjoyed themselves.
A lot of the feedback we have had from family members & friends was about Will and how good he was.
Our only disappointment was that the evening had to come to an end!
We would like to thank you Will for being a big part of our day, you really did make it a wonderful evening for us & we will be forever grateful.

We are back from mini - moon and just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for being the best DJ ever!! and for making our wedding party so brilliant!
We remember walking into the barn and thinking WOW - the barn has never looked so amazing and the lighting was so fantastic! Not only that but you got the party going straight away and it was hit after hit and so much fun! We had so many compliments about you and we will recommend you to lots of people! We want everyone to know how brilliant you were!
If you would like us to leave a proper review somewhere please let us know.
Honestly, it was just such a pleasure having you as part of our day and it was lovely to see you waving on the way up to the church.
Thanks again for everything- you were really
great and we all loved having you part of our big day
and working closely with in the planning stages.
Lots of love,
Flora and Ian
Will was way more than your standard DJ!
His attention to ensuring our night was perfect and how we wanted it was second to none. There is a reason why Cripps Barn recommend him so highly!
Firstly how many DJs invite you to their House to meet them? It's unheard of! But so welcoming and a great assurance that you've picked a winner.
We chose all of our music for the evening thanks to an app he uses called Vibo - which was very easy to use and was very handy for us as we asked our guests to choose a song for the evening on our invites. The songs they selected, we just added to the app.
Will also Facetimed us closer to the day to confirm all final details along with any other requests we may have.- again another personal touch. Most DJs wouldn't even email you let alone facetime!
One of the other things that stood out for us was his incredible lighting! Again all tailored to the music that we chose. Some lighting was additional extra you could opt for, which we did, and again, so worth it! (But his standard setup is still amazing without the extra.)
At the end of the day, you get what you pay for and quality comes with a price. This was one quality we were very happy to pay for.
Thank you so much Will, you helped make our day one to never forget. Sincere and genuine throughout.
Love of love,
Rachel and Luke x

Letter of thanks / testimonial.
We hope this message finds you well. We are all settled into our honeymoon and by the pool we have just watched the video you made at our wedding. It brought back so many wonderful memories, and caught some amazing moments that Jade and I missed.
Jade and I were lucky enough to see you work at Ed and Leanne`s wedding about 18 months ago. When it came to our wedding planning, whilst there are many decisions to make, but choosing our DJ was a "No Brainer!" We new with Will we were in very safe hands. The Great Tythe Barn was a new venue for you and it was great that you took it upon yourself to contact them and research it and find out what they needed from you, as a new DJ to the venue. I understand they asked for your business cards toochoosing you as our DJ was one of the easiest. Hearing what Ed and Leanne had said was then fully backed up by your fantastic personal service to us. You took the time to meet us and get to know us as a couple. We talked about music but you were keen to understand us, and our families. Jade and I aren't big dancers but we love good music in our ears. We also wanted our dance loving guests to have a fantastic evening on us.
Using your experience and knowledge of how weddings go,and generaly what works and doesn't. Our big day arrives and you arrived with a big smile on your face recognising a few friends from the previous wedding. For a man with so much equipment you set it up fast and before we knew it everyone started hitting the dance floor to amazing music. Your lighting set up is second to none and was simply amazing to watch how you can change the atmosphere of the lighting to suit the music. The lasers were without doubt my personal favourite and I think Laila's as well. Your description of a ceiling of blue laser light with your white stars projected around during ColdPlay Sky Full of Stars was simply incredible and was beyond anything we could ever of expected. We both loved the fact that Laila was so comfortable with talking to you and able to ask for anything she wanted.
From the bottom of our hearts thank you for making our wedding day just perfect. We have received so many compliments about the whole day and they included rave reviews and compliments of your evenings work. Should we ever need a DJ again we will be coming straight to you and recommending you to anyone. Your work certainly impressed as you have already been booked for our next family wedding! Jade, Laila and I cannot wait to see you in October for another fantastic night under your Sky Full of Stars.
Thank you so so much.
Love Andy, Jade and Laila. Xx
We knew that we had booked an amazing DJ for our wedding but Will was more than what we ever expected!
His knowledge, experience and advice building up to our day really put us at ease!
On the day, I never thought the band and DJ would work as well as it did! The dancefloor was never empty and we think that was purely down to him! The atmosphere was incredible!
The added bonus of having parts of our evening filmed was awesome! It was so lovely to come home from our minimoon to watch and capture parts we had actually missed!
We can’t thank you enough Will!
Edd & Ally Major
Well we're writing to you from a hotel in Cape Town, South Africa, at the moment. Sorry we hadn't written to you sooner.
Although we have popped in a video of our thanks, we can't say what an amazing job you did in one email. I mean you were one of the best bits of the day. Everyone said how amazing you were, the lighting!! Every song suited the atmosphere in the room. You're so good at what you do!
We were so sorry and upset that we didn't say goodbye after the human tunnel but mum and Dad had arranged us a car to take us to our hotel. Otherwise I would have given you a big big hug and thank you.
If there is anything we can do, obviously a Facebook review then we will (as soon as we have time). Feel free to post the gig log on you're social media.
Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you, thank you, thank you!! I'm sure we will give you a call once we're home.
Sian & Jay x
The bride and groom had a recommendation for Cotswold DJ i.am.Will and he was brilliant. He arrived in good time to set up, including wonderful lighting, which looked great alongside what the happy couple had put in place earlier. Will had his finger on the pulse all night - the dancing kept going right until midnight and he kissed us all goodnight (metaphorically). Thoroughly recommend him.
Pete and Sam
Will was quick to respond to our messages and made the whole experience really easy and stress-free for us. On meeting Will, he is very friendly and professional. The set looked great, and he delivered a fantastic evening for all guests. You need this DJ at your wedding!' Gemma and Steve Richardson
We hired Will for our wedding at Cripps Barn in March 2019. From start to finish, Will was a consummate professional and we felt extremely comfortable and confident that he would be an amazing DJ for our big day. We weren’t disappointed! The app Will had us upload our track choices to was a brilliant idea – very easy to use and made the process of deciding on songs so much easier. On the day itself, Will did an amazing job and the dancefloor was packed all night long! Thanks very much Will for a superb service – highly recommended!
Fiona and jack
“Will is the ultimate professional and like Cripps Barn, we can’t recommend him enough.
Not only is his lighting really innovative but Will has just started using a new App which is perfect if like us, you want to get quite "hands on" in the process of selecting the music for the night. It just made it so easy!
Will is really flexible and stuck to our 90s theme. The video he produced is testimony to how good his “set” was. The wedding party was bouncing all night!
He also worked seamlessly in collaboration with Sarah Sax, an Ibiza saxophonist which is an important skill set if you are considering having more than one artist at your party.
Also, something that is important to me with any supplier is great communication. Not only did we have a meeting with Will, but he was also very responsive via phone or email and will be able to answer any questions you may have.
In the end, Will wasn’t a supplier, he became a friend of the wedding party.
Rock and roll isn’t dead. Thanks Will!
Rob & Amber Taylor
Dear Will ,
you were so wonderful last Friday night , and you finished the party off with great gusto and kept them all dancing right to the end. Thank you so so much . All four of us had a blast and loved every minute of it . Not least watching the entire cast of extras off the set of Lawrence of Arabia trouping past in droves. My Kuwaity / Lebanese son in law must have felt very at home.
I hope you weren’t too exhausted on Saturday morning. Thank you again Will so much for all your hard work , and I believe you did the video too . So clever . Below is a testimonial for you.
Best wishes Livvy x
If I ever have the energy to have another party on the scale of the one we have just had , which was major , I would have Will at the top of my list . He was brilliant from first to last . On time for appointments , very smiley and calm , versatile and charming . There was never an anxious moment . We chose the music and he did a great job in keeping everyone on the dance floor till the very end playing New York New York as a finale . On the scale of 1 to 10 he was definitely a 10 . Thank you Will .
My name is Sonya ( I`m Jess`s the mother of the bride).
I just want to say: you were absolutely FANTASTIC! I don`t remember dancing like that at a wedding before! The music choice was just PERFECT! Thank you so much. You were the best DJ I have ever pertied with! Seriously Will!
Thank you for a truely wonderful evening.
One of my first weddings back was for Sophie and Ryan, and I just want to pass on a massive thank you to them for getting to the "finish line!" It was amazing to have DJed for them, and a huge thank you for these very sweet words:
“ We hired Will to DJ our wedding back when we originally booked our venue in 2019 for July 2020, which sadly was postponed due to COVID. During this period which brought postponements and stress, Will was always amazing!! Will’s communication was always impeccable and after many zoom meetings, emails and liaising with our venue, we finally celebrated our day on 08.07.2021 and what a day it was!
Will threw us the biggest and best party and there wasn’t a seated bottom at our reception! Despite having to redesign his entire set up (to be outdoors!) the disco lighting looked incredible, the music was AMAZING and the introductions which Will made for our first dance and other special family dances were very heartfelt.
I would recommend Will to everyone, if you love music and a great atmosphere there really is no one better!
Thank you Will for making our evening reception one we will always treasure.
We honestly had the most special and amazing day and the way you handled all of the restrictions and re-jigged your set up made us feel like COVID didn’t exist! You made us feel like the only couple in the world that were getting married and after all that worrying, I can honestly say I wouldn’t change a single thing about our day!
100% will call you if we have any big family events in the future, you are 1 in a million!!
Sophie & Ryan Cornwell - Stone Barn 08.07.2021”
"I have never had to research music suppliers as much as I did before our wedding but I am SO glad I did. I can genuinely, hand on heart, say that my wedding would not have been the same without Will. Will may be too humble to say it but he genuinely is the best. Anyone can play music but it takes skill and a certain determination to do it well.
His lights are so awesome. So much better in real life than any photo or video could show. Even if he didn’t play any music, the lights could have easily kept me occupied for the evening. A guest of ours said to me that she had never seen such a display of lights, ever, not just at a wedding, but ever and I have to agree.
Will has an app that he gives you, that allows you to choose all of your music. Either straight from Spotify or YouTube, which makes for a really personalised playlist.
He is so accommodating, we came up with a few strange requests and although he probably wouldn’t have personally chosen them, he was still more than willing to play them.
He read the dance floor really well. We had given Will a list of times that we were expecting different things to happen during our evening. Things like our first dance, our cake cutting, our flower toss, and then on the day, we changed all of them! Completely on the spot and Will kept up, without a single grumble! He even started early, just to amuse the small people who wanted a boogie. He completely took charge of the dance floor and I trusted him. He took guests requests and he played all of them.
On top of that, Will is a really lovely human who I just want to give a massive hug and a high five to. He deserves all the good reviews he gets and more. To quote my 5 year old niece “My best bit was when the DJ started!” and I think lots of people would agree. Thank you Mr Will and thank you for our video to. It is the most special thing.
Best wishes for now and for the future.
Stacie and Mark
Will!! You legend!!
What an absolutely amazing time we had on Saturday night. Everything was perfect: the cool, relaxed vibe we were aiming for was completely achieved thanks to you, the music and the lighting. You don't get to our age (!) without having experienced many, many parties and djs, and without a doubt you are " �dfbc Simply the Best" - so much more than "just a dj." Dressed for the occasion, and loved the funky moves, too!
The planning and preparation for the party was very smooth and easy, and we loved your creative ideas and attention to detail. You obviously love what you do, that really shines through. We had many wonderful comments on and after the evening about your fantastic performance.
Thank you so much for making this special occasion so very memorable for everyone. We wouldn't hesitate to use you again, and to recommend you wholeheartedly.
Very best wishes,
Wendy and Flinty
Will, with his fantastic music and amazing light show, have just given me, friends and family (of all ages from 20s to 70s) the best proper full on DISCO we have all had in years.
He managed to pack the dance the floor before everyone had downed the obligatory few tipples usually required -unheard of!
As well as a telephone chat and emails before the evening, Will shared an app where I could select all my favourite dance music in advance. Will followed it as closely as he could whilst adding in other spot on tracks. He must have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the best disco music!
We had a music themed fancy dress evening and Will managed to identify several guests dressed as e.g. Amy Winehouse and Boy George and play one of their tracks.
Importantly, Will is not 'cheesy'! No annoying banter, he just got on with the music with the occasional announcement about food etc. He is also just a really nice man. If you have a special event to celebrate, BOOK THIS DJ! You will not regret it.
Thank you Will, you are the best and I have had so many messages and texts saying the same (whilst complaining about their aching legs and feet!).
We have both enjoyed being away from everything for a few days! But really just wanted to thank you very much for your well wishes, and thank you so very much for being amazing on the night!
At certain points, I wasn't sure if you or my nephews were enjoying it more!!
Thank you also for going to the lengths you did, especially before the wedding with the meeting to discuss songs and playlists, particularly songs we don't like, and for putting up with endless requests for country music on the night. I'm sure you don't get that very often.
Finally, I'd just like to say, we are both SO happy that we picked you for our special day. You were so enthusiastic and accommodating, right from the very first email, and put us at ease so quickly, it made our decision so easy.
We really could not have imagined it any different.
Phil & Katie.
the biggest biggest THANK YOU for playing our wedding at Cripps on Saturday 19th December. From the moment we first spoke you have been nothing but easy & enjoyable to work with, which made a sometimes stressful time much much easier.
We just wanted to say how fantastic you were and we`ve just watched the video on FB and its epic!! It really captures the evening and all our wonderful friends and a brilliant reminder of our songs, its brilliant & captures the fun had by all.
Thank you again for contributing to what was the most memorable & best day of our lives.
Hope you had a lovely Xmas and all the best for the new year.
Again thank you for a great evening. Hope you have a fantastic New Year.
Oli and Zoe.
"We are so pleased we booked Will to DJ at our wedding in June. He was a pleasure to deal with from booking and in the run up to the wedding and he scheduled a call to go through our preferences and to talk through how things would work on the day. He uses an app to help you build your playlist with songs you do and don't want. You can see he has such a passion for making sure everyone has such a great time and we really did have the best night! The dancefloor was full right until finish and we didn't want it to end. Also the lights/lazers really make the party! We're really grateful to him for making our wedding evening one we'll never forget!"
Lauren & Chris
"So pleased to have met Will at an open evening as we had struggled to find someone as enthusiastic as he was! Hugely thorough in his preparation, he listened to what we wanted for the evening element of our wedding and went above and beyond to make sure all had a good time and danced the night away. A genuine guy who we wish the best and thank for making our night great! The Matchetts!"
Thank you for you help in creating such a fantastic evening at our wedding. Your friendly, professional manner along with a great knowledge of music made it so easy for us to relax and enjoy every moment of the evening with our friends and family, also the fact you took the time to meet us before the wedding to go through the music we wanted was fantastic. I would highly recommend your services to anyone looking for an excellent DJ.
Thank you again
Daniel & kimberley
“We celebrated our 25th anniversary in September and had two key ingredients around which the rest of the night would flow – firstly the venue, Worcester Cricket Club, and secondly the music as we wanted to be up dancing all night. I had only one choice for DJ having heard rave reviews of Will and from the initial enquiry to the last track of the night he was spot on. He manages to get the perfect balance between being extremely professional but friendly and produced just the right combination of music from our wish list. Everyone complimented our choice of venue and DJ, his own enjoyment of what he does shines through nearly as much as the great lighting effects that set the room of beautifully and I only wish I had another party to organise as Will’s number would be the first on my list”.
Margot and Tony.
“Cotswold DJ i.am.Will came to us by personal recommendation and we were so pleased and impressed with his performance that we must pass on our own testimonial and recommendation. Will went to great lengths to get a play-list that met our needs and desires – a real personal touch. He has an excellent set of equipment enhanced by his own presence and personality. A nice touch was Will volunteering to take photographs for us with our camera all evening, which meant that we could enjoy ourselves, and still have a wonderful record of an event that passed all too quickly.”
Many thanks for the great evening,
Peter and Ann
We just want to say a HUGE thank you. We really did have the best day ever and the party truly made it. One of our favourite moments of the day was in that final hour, dancing in a circle with our nearest and dearest around us, with your amazing lights flooding the barn. It was just incredible. We couldn’t ask for anything more!
Quite simply we wouldn’t have wanted ANYONE else to DJ on our very special day. You did an AMAZING job and we can’t thank you enough.
We love the photos so much! They made us smile but also brought a tear to our eyes! A very nice touch, thank you.
We will recommend you to anyone getting married.
Wishing you a happy, and (we know), what will be a very successful 2017.
Chloe and Jay xx
Just been watching the video of our wedding evening......if anyone is looking for a dj for their wedding then we literally cannot recommend Will enough!! Not only did he make sure our evening was perfect but he got a lot of it on video for us so we now have the most amazing memory of our incredible evening!!
Will has been wonderful! He's one of the friendliest guys I've ever met, a true gentleman & he truly cares that you get the evening you want! He was even the first person to rush off & get some ice when my godson banged his head at our wedding!
Will had some fab ideas & some really helpful suggestions but also made sure he played all the songs that were important to us! The whole evening was fab, the lighting looked amazing & the dance floor was never empty - our guests loved it! We're even hoping to book Will for my Dad's 60th birthday at the end of the year and I can honestly say I'll look forward to seeing him!
Thank you Will! I only wish we could rewind and have the day again!!
Lots of love Helen and Will Prout
“Will was the DJ at our wedding at Cripps Barn in February and he was brilliant!!!
Right from our first email Will was communicative, approachable and pro-active. He suggested meeting us before the wedding so we could get to know each other and he could understand more about what we wanted from our evening, our music likes (and dislikes) and the demographic of the guests to help make sure people got out on the dance-floor. And it worked, everyone had a fabulous time! We also had a ceilidh band for the first part of the evening and Will was great at liaising with them to ensure all ran smoothly.
Will combines being extremely professional and genuinely lovely bloke - we felt in very safe in Will`s hands and would most certainly recommend him.
Thank you Will!”
Katie and Rich
thank you so much for making our wedding night SO memorable.
Anybody looking for a DJ :
Will put together a brilliant playlist, including some of our favourite songs. Everyone was on the dancefloor enjoying themselves as much as we were.
As well as playing some great tunes, Will`s light system is great with star lights and lasers! Which he uses to completely change the atmosphere in the room, to suit the track which is playing.
Will also took us completely by surprise by arranging a lovely personal message from some little people who could not be there, to invite us on to the dance floor for our first dance. He also took some great photos of the night for us.
To summarise, Will made the perfect day into the perfect night!
Tom and Emily xx
"We had the perfect wedding and couldn't of asked for a better DJ , Will was amazing from the get go. We can't thank him enough for being part of such an amazing day. Had everyone dancing into the early hours with the great lighting and playing banger after banger (great song after great song) :). We wish would could do it all over again!!
Marc & Amiee 12/08/17
“Will was superb from start to finish. It was quite late in the build up to the wedding when we finally decided that we wanted a DJ rather than a live band and we knew we’d made the right decision after meeting Will to discuss the evening. Will brought ideas and experience to the table that we just didn’t have and would never have thought of – he epitomises why it is so important to have someone that understands how an evening and its mood is going to progress from start to finish, as well as the ability to adapt on the night. Our dance floor was packed from start to finish and all of our guests have since been commenting on how much fun they had as a result.
Will, we can’t thank you enough for all the effort you put in – your song suggestions were perfect; the lighting and effects were second to none; and your friendly and professional approach throughout was exemplary. We have and will continue to recommend you to all of our friends tying the knot! Thank you.”
Mr and Mrs Vivian x
“Will was a massive part in making our day so special. Our friend who attended our wedding, and has been to more weddings than anyone else we know said, "This is one of the best dj's I've ever heard." The music was so great, rivaled only by the light show! It was the best dance floor we can remember in recent memory, all the way to the end of the night. He even was gracious enough to help us with the projector and sound equipment for the speeches earlier in the night. Will was so great from the beginning of the process, and we're so lucky to have worked with him. Truly a Legend!"
Allie & Gabe ,
We just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for DJing at our Wedding. We honestly had the most incredible day, and you did such an amazing job at keeping everyone on the dancefloor!
We had SO many comments about you and your beautiful lights. It was so lovely to final meet you too!
Thank you so much once again,
Gemma and Liam xx
We were absolutely delighted with the service Will gave us. From our first meeting with him, his communication at every step, and then the amazing job he did on the night! If anyone is considering booking Will, we would say – “Just do it!” - and trust him. He'll follow every request you give. Our advice is let him handle the fine details, he's a true professional, the night will be much better for it, and his setup is something else!!
Once again thank you so much for being part of our wonderful wedding day up at Hyde Barn.
Robert and Stephanie.
Thanks for your email and for the lovely iMovie, it’s great!
What an incredible day and night! It was everything we wanted and more and we cannot thank you enough. You really listened to us and the kind of music we wanted for the night and you did not disappoint. Every single person said how amazing it was and I don’t think we ever had even a half empty dance floor all night! It was just a perfect way to end a perfect day so thank you so much.
Thanks again Will :)
Love Steph & Daryl xx

“Will helped make our wedding perfect. He couldn’t have been more flexible or accommodating. We didn’t have to worry about a thing, thanks to his attention to detail and amazing preparation.
He managed the lighting and sound for our Cabaret act like a true pro, and his incredible set up had everyo...ne dancing the night away. The perfect end to our perfect day at Foxhill Manor"
Many thanks again.
Richard and Dennis.
A huge thank you ...to Will for an amazing wedding night he played for us on Sunday 14th May 2017 at Hyde Barn. From start to finish he kept us and our guests dancing all night. The music he played was brilliant and his lights and sound setup are top quality. Will played a wide range of songs that kept us entertained all night and happily took request from our guests.
The meeting with Will before our wedding was really helpful and really made us feel more relaxed about our wedding evening plans. Will is a very friendly and approachable guy. We love reminiscing our night through the video he captured. We definitely recommend him to DJ for any celebration. Thank you so much Will,
Best regards, Richard & Stella.
Will was not only a fantastic DJ on our special day, but he was also hugely supportive in the lead up and really went above and beyond my expectations of a DJ, I can’t thank him enough…..he was absolutely brilliant, and the night wouldn’t have been the same without him.
All of our guests were raving about what a fantastic playlist he had, together with an outstanding light system, playing to all age groups the dancefloor was kept alive and never empty throughout the evening…..I would absolutely recommend Will as an addition to any type of event and hopefully find a reason to use him again in the future.
Maggie and Mark Wadland
Will is absolutely fantastic!!
His lighting is amazing, as is the sound quality. We couldn't have wished for a better DJ for our wedding.
Will even offered to serve drinks upon guests arriving at the reception at the house and helped clear the tables etc during the day!
Prior to the wedding the preparation that went into our day from his end was great, he ensured the playlist was as we wanted, and the fact that he could make it exactly to our taste was spot on.
Will is a genuinely great guy and we will definitely be using him for any future events going forward.
Thanks for an amazing evening Will!!"
Many thanks James and Emilie Hutson (Married 29th July 17).
Without exception everyone who came to my party had nothing but glowing comments regarding the Disco. I thought it was absolutely fantastic and the kids thought the lights were great. We would be delighted to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a really professional disco. ( Which we have already done). It really made my birthday a memorable one, and you are such a nice guy too. Many thanks and best wishes,
Ken & Maureen.
We are so sorry for the late thank you!
First of all, a MASSIVE thank you for all you did on our wedding day!!! We had such a great time and all o...ur guests keep commenting on how fab it was.
The video is great thank you – we watched it on honey moon and really enjoyed re-living it all (I’ve just watched it again at work and cried!!)
From our initial emails, right through to the day itself, the whole process was seamless with you, and we feel extremely good value. Getting to know you beforehand was SO important and you really understood exactly what we wanted, from our day / evening.
Thank you so much once again.
With best wishes,
Anna and Chris.
Will contributed so much more than a “Disco” for our daughter’s wedding. He helped carefully chose the music with our daughter and son-in-law for their wedding celebrations. He added romantic lighting to make the barn into the most magical venue for the reception. Then from the moment the dance music started, the floor was full. With his fantastic lights, he seemed to somehow turn the Barn into more of a night club, constantly changing the light show to suit the music playing. Nobody wanted the party to stop!
We can`t recommend Will enough.
Elaine and Allen.
I just want to thank you once again for a Saturday night. You turned a great wedding into a fantastic evening! The whole day was superb. Here are a few words for your social media and testimonials on your website:
" Will performed what I can only describe as a truly brilliant, scintillating and pulsating evening at my daughter's wedding on the 11th May at the Great Tythe Barn Tetbury. The dance floor was filled from start to finish with hours of some of the best music I have heard, from all genres and for ALL ages.
The really exceptional skill was tailoring the music and lighting to the energy level on the dance floor and all the different age ranges in the room, which changed as some of the older guests retired off to bed and the youngsters predominated later in the evening. It really was truly exceptional !"
Once again, thank you Will, everyone had a brilliant evening.
"Will you total legend!
From our awesome consultation with you, you managed to not only play hour after hour of awesome music and to suit all our crazy tastes, you managed to transform the venue with the most incredible lighting ever (the stary lighting for our first dance was just so magical too!).
All our guests commented on how much fun they had in the evening, and we are so happy we had you as our entertainment on our wedding day. Will you were so professional and you are so very clever at what you do!
Honestly, Will thank you so very much you really did do a fab job and we had so much fun and you really did make the evening so cool!
We 100% recommend Will to ALL!"
Wishing you all the very best for 2020 and
many more fun weddings ahead.
Thank you so much
Katie & James.
We were so pleased to have chosen Will to be our DJ for our wedding at Hyde House.
Not being from the area we were unsure how to go about choosing the best DJ. We then found Will’s website and read his testimonials and watched his videos and was excited to have a chat with him and see what he could do for us.
The Facetime chat was super useful in getting to know how the evening would go and also discuss our music choices. Also the app to add songs into was really useful as well as you could add things in on the go when you heard them playing etc.
On the day he was great and we felt confident that we could just leave him to set up and get on with it without having to check and see that everything was ok. He played all the music that we and our guests enjoy and was getting into the party vibe himself which added a great atmosphere to the dance floor. Thanks Will, we were really pleased with how everything went!
Thanks again :)
Catherine and Adam
We would just like to thank you once again for the amazing service you provided on our special day. It couldn't have gone any better.
It was lovely meeting you before the wedding to discuss our likes and dislikes. The meeting really was invaluable and something we weren't offered when getting quotes from other DJ's. You gave us so many things to think about and discuss. We had great fun the weeks before the wedding planning a playlist and your input was brilliant.
On the night your set looked fantastic. It suited the venue perfectly and your set up was seamless. We didn't even notice you until it was time to get the party started.
Although we had planned a playlist on the night you used your DJ instinct and went with what was getting people on the dance floor which was exactly what we wanted. In fact I think we could have all danced all night!
We would highly recommend you to any of our friends and family with upcoming events.
Karla and Chris.
We just really wanted to leave you a review which you can share:
'Will DJed at our wedding in June 2019 at Stone Barn. He was so professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Our phone consultation was great and he really understood the vibe we wanted. The music on the night really worked well for us and his personality and amazing lights really lights up the room.
Will, you really were fantastic, so thank you again!
Emma and James
As Will had DJ’d very successfully last year at my best mate’s wedding, I knew he was the man for the job. He rose to the challenge of (a) playing in London (b) being given very little time to set up as we were using the same room for the meal and (c) playing to a discerning room of media and music label folks. He was utterly fantastic and everyone loved the celebration. As a friend emailed me the day after: “Now THAT’S how you do a wedding disco!”. Cheers Will! Andy
We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for making Jessica and Marvin’s wedding party so amazing.
I know that you had worked closely with them on music choices - the music was so what they wanted and such fun. You had all ages on the dance floor - even two guests in their 80’s! We have such happy memories of the whole day and our guests have been very complimentary about you.
A huge thank you!
I am sure that Jessica and Marvin will be thanking you on their return from honeymoon. I know they were delighted with the evening.
Rosemary and David Lawn
Good Afternoon Will
Just wanted to say a BIG MASSIVE THANK YOU from the both of us for Thursday night.
You did such an amazing job and everyone has complimented on the music, the lights and everything, it was such a perfect day and night. You played music for all ages and there wasn’t anyone not on the dance floor, so me panicking about no one dancing I really didn’t have anything to worry about. I still have numb toes now..... no joking lol
It was everything we both wished for and more.
We aren’t on Facebook so if there is another way we can write a review for you then please send me a link
Very well done to you, you were fabulous
All the very best wishes
Abi & Dan xx
Malc and I would just like to say a massive thank you to you for the fantastic disco you provided for our wedding. We were totally blown away by the whole day but really enjoyed the disco you played everything we wanted and kept everybody on the dance floor it WAS BRILLIANT, and again thank you very much cannot wait to see the recording that you were doing.
Malc & Glynda
Thanks so much for everything and the video., it really means a lot. We are still buzzing in a high from the day, it was just incredible! Can't believe it's nearly a week ago already!
Everyone keeps mentioning how incredible the music, lighting and the DJ set was so hats of to you as it made the atmosphere electric!
Have a great weekend
Andy and Tod
Wow - where do we start with Wills service?!
From the day we met Will when he came to see our venue, Luckley Farm we knew we'd made a great decision, his passion for what you do is amazing!
The app he uses is brilliant and really helps him to get a good idea of what our personal tastes our, even when we got a bit stuck on our music choices he was on the end of the phone to help!
From the moment he started till 1am, there were people dancing and singing! He went above and beyond to make the night amazing, from the set up and lights to taking some great video footage for us to look back on and enjoy (or cringe at the dad dancing!)
We can't thank you enough Will, and highly recommend you to anyone that wants to guarantee a great wedding DJ!
Sophie & Chris
I hope you're doing well?
Sorry for the quite late note, but I just wanted to contact you again to thank you for being the most fantastic DJ at our wedding last month!
You totally got the right vibe, picked the best songs for the people in the room at any one time and knew how to get the best out of our party, I think it's a real fine art and you completely nailed it. When you said you weren't a dj that 'just pressed play' you were totally right.
Everyone has been commenting on how great you were, and I quote "the best wedding dj they've seen/heard" which we completely agree with! As you could probably tell, no one wanted the music or night to end (encore encore encore!)
Thank you again for being a part of our big day, we're so very glad we picked you!
If there's anywhere you'd like us to add some reviews then please let us know, as we would recommend you to anyone and everyone.
Ellie & Sean
Thank you once again for your superb contribution to the success of are Lady's Festival . The music you played matched the mood of the guests with the dance floor constantly full. Nothing was to much trouble , looking forward to you being with us next year . Regards Peter Ross (WM)
Natalie Smith-Daniel We couldn't recommend you any more than we have already! Absolutely pleasure having you dj at our wedding, you became more of a friend than just a dj! Thankyou once again will! Such an amazing service highly recommended!!!
Many thanks to Tom and Tori for these lovely words. They got married at The Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury. For more testimonails and review from the worlds most amazing couples, please check out my website.
"Will was the DJ at our wedding, and he really made the evening. From the first song to the last, Will kept the dance floor full and ensured that everyone (from young to old) had a fantastic time! We've had so many comments from friends and family telling us how much they loved the DJ! The ability to use Will's app to pre-select songs that we liked was both really fun (for everyone in our families) and ensured that we didn't have any unpopular tunes on the night. Will was also consistently very professional, polite and helpful in his dealings with us - which just made both the planning and the day itself so much easier.
Thanks again for your help - we're recommending you to everyone we know!
Tom and Tori"
Having met Will at work a few times and seen him in action, I knew I ONLY wanted him to DJ at my big birthday party - I made sure I booked him well in advance!
Will was fantastic before, during, and after the event - he let me pick songs that I knew I wanted, and then added his own in the same spirit of the evening.
His lighting is amazing which made a great atmosphere - everyone was dancing all evening, and lots of my guests commented on how good he was.
The video Will did after the event was very special - and made me cry! - it's been doing the rounds of friends & family who find it hilarious seeing all the dodgy dance moves we did again!
Thank you so much again, and I would definitely recommend Will for your special event!
We wanted to thank you so much for playing such a special part in our wedding. All the guests agreed that the energy was incredible, the effects were brilliant and the music was fantastic!
We knew we wanted you to be our DJ from the very start and you went far beyond our expectations :) The evening was just perfect xx (To anyone reading this planning their wedding BOOK WILL!!!)
Thank you so much again, and a BIG thank you to Mel too for all her help the previous day setting up and on the day! Good luck with this season of weddings �de0a
Lots of love,
Eshara and Lewis xx
We were watching our wedding DVD this morning and we were both saying how great you were. Sorry it's taken ages to get back in touch. It's the horrible realisation that once I send those final emails, wedding planning will really be over!
To be honest we were thinking at first of just putting a playlist on an ipod for the night instead of having a DJ. But we are so happy we found you. You brought a great energy and atmosphere to the evening. My family all commented on how well the brasilian songs were integrated into the evening. Thanks so much for accommodating that for us. It was really special to have brasilian music as part of the night.
You were wonderful to deal with both before and on the day, so professional, and you really took care in putting everything together for us. Definitely a highlight of the night!
Once again many, many thanks
Great meeting you!
All the best,
Patricia and Zaf
We cannot thank Will enough for making our wedding day spectacular. From pre-planning the the actual event, Will went above and beyond what anyone would expect. From providing the lighting and making sure he played peoples favourites, to making a" giglog" for future reminiscing. Will took our reception from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
We would 100% recommend i.am.Will to anyone wanting a great professional DJ service which goes the extra mile.
Kevin and Rachael Herbert.
just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything on Friday night - you were brilliant, tunes were great and everyone commented on your energy - you really made the evening!
We'll definitely be recommending you for any parties!
Matt & Emi.
"Will is absolutely fantastic!!
His lighting is amazing, as is the sound quality. We couldn't have wished for a better DJ for our wedding.
Will even offered to serve drinks upon guests arriving at the reception at the house and helped clear the tables etc during the day!...
Prior to the wedding the preparation that went into our day from his end was great, he ensured the playlist was as we wanted, and the fact that he could make it exactly to our taste was spot on.
Will is a genuinely great guy and we will definitely be using him for any future events going forward. Thanks for an amazing evening Will!
Many thanks James and Emilie Hutson (Married 29th July 17)"
We asked Will to DJ for us at our intimate wedding at Buckland Manor (20 July 2017). Will listened carefully to our preferences and took into consideration the small size of our venue, the age and mix of our guests and our music tastes. He was very responsive to emails and calls to arrange and discuss the details. He judged the atmosphere on th...e night and tweaked the music to suit the mood perfectly. His set up with added glitter ball and lighting really added a classy yet subtle party vibe to the evening. Our guests and Andrew and I had a brilliant night, singing and dancing along to Will's selection of music. Will is a very professional and friendly DJ - I would highly recommend him to anyone after a DJ for their special day.
Jade and Andrew Hopson
Will was absolutely fantastic from start to finish. He kept the party going and played songs that everyone had a chance to dance to. The lighting also looked great and really changed our venue from day to night. We had an abolsute blast dancing the night away at our wedding. I would reccomend Will to anyone looking to have a great party at their wedding. Thanks Will!
Thanks again for being fantastic on our wedding day - we had the best time!
I hope you have a lovely Christmas
Tamzin and Jon
We just want to say to any other Brides and Grooms looking for a DJ how amazing Will was for our wedding last week at Cripps Barn. We had an amazing time, and all our guests commented on how good the music was. Will really listened to our requests and played lots of 90s dance music, but also played songs to suit everybody else `s music tastes, so everyone had a great chance to dance!
One of our dear friends even shared a link from Will`s Facebook page with this comment:
'I was super impressed with the DJ at Sophie and Sam's wedding yesterday. First class light show and a really nice bloke too. An ambassador for the industry and highly recommended!'
Will kindly took some amazing photos of the evening as well which have really helped us relive an amazing night. Thank you so much Will, you made our wedding evening complete. We will recommend you to all!!
Really hope to see you again soon.
Sophie & Sam
Just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you for creating such an amazing dance floor and party atmosphere for us on Thursday night. We absolutely loved every second of it and couldn't stop dancing, it was so much fun!! A lot of our friends commented on how good you were and that they loved the music, so thank you for such an amazing night for us and our guests!! Hope it was fun for you as well.
Lots of Love Olivia and James.
A massive thank you, for help making our wedding night such a success. We have had SO many friends comment on how great the music was, and how much fun they had – (which I'm sure you could tell by more than a few of them never leaving the dance floor!)
It has been an absolute pleasure working with you, from the first meeting and we will definitely recommend you to all of our friends (and anyone we happen to overhear planning a wedding!)
Thanks for the video, there are some absolute golden moments in there we definitely missed!!
Thank you again for making our night such a success!
Nell and Luke xx
"When my fiancee and I started planning our wedding we weren't sure what kind of entertainment we wanted for the evening reception. In hindsight, choosing Will as our DJ was one of the best choices we made when planning our big day. From the first time we met Will it felt like we had known him for years. We talked in depth about the song choices for our evening and Will spent a great deal of time making the playlist absolutely perfect. Will also mixed our first dance-starting with Adele, interrupted by a"Power Cut!" and then back into Single Ladies! We cannot recommend Will highly enough, he is FANTASTIC."
We had such a wonderful day at Cripps Barn and the evening was amazing-I think I danced all night! We had loads of complements from our guests about Will and the song choices in the set! Also everyone was so surprised by our first dance!
Thank you so much again for everything. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without you.
Beth and Josh.
Will was the perfect fit for DJing at our wedding at Dumbleton Hall. We knew we could of got a "Standard Disco" for slightly less money, BUT we were looking for someone who would create something more classy and fun and help make a wonderful atmosphere on our evening. Will did exactly this. We thought we are only going to do this once, so we wanted it to be right!
He recommended we met before the wedding to discuss the evening in more detail and our music tastes. This meant the night was totally personalised to us, which was so lovely. It was also great
because we got to know each other before the evening as well.
His set-up is totally amazing, and his lights created that amazing
atmosphere we where after. Whether that was for an 80s classic, a 90`s dance track
or something slower like our first dance, they fitted perfectly. His set up alone truly
shows how passionate Will is about his DJing, and how he fully understands how
important it is to get it right.
Will was dressed in a smart suit which was a nice touch and also took
some amazing photos of the evening for us.
Everyone commented on how good the set was and how he played such a great variety of music to suit all our guests tastes.
Will himself is very friendly, super professional and very kind and caring. He was a great addition to our day and we can’t praise him highly enough.
Many thanks Will,
Hayley and James. x
If you want a DJ you can choose no better than this man! We recently got married and everyone has since commented on how fab the DJ was! Will is clearly somebody who loves his job…..and it shows!
The music was first class and the dance floor was packed from start to finish. He was very professional leading up to our wedding and nothing was any bother. You can be involved as much or as little as you want in choosing your music. Will was always contactable before the wedding and always available to give any advice or guidance on what to play and do on the day. Not only this but he was only too happy to take requests on the night………..of which there was many at our wedding!
The energy Will brings to the party is almost as good as the music itself, he does this in away that is not over the top so we still felt the celebration was about our wedding and you are still very much the star of the show. If we were to do our wedding all over again we would not change a thing and certainly not the DJ.
Many thanks for being a part of our amazing day Will,
Steve and Cassie
We had a great time and memories we will cherish for as long as we have a
memory, thanks in no small part to Wills stewardship of the music and
dancing. Having Will there and knowing he was taking care of Gill’s
requests and looking after everyone made for a perfect evening. We would not
hesitate to recommend Will to anyone who basically wants a rip-roaringly
I hope we get the chance to share that with you again,
sometime in the not too distant future. A thousand thank yours my
Andy & Gill
"Will was an amazing asset to our wedding and worth every penny. Right from the start Will made everything easy, from the initial booking, to choosing songs and organising the finer details.
Will set us up with a his professional app that made music choices simple, easy and fun. We never once had to worry about anything technical as Will put us at ease as he had everything under control.
Will is a great guy, friendly, professional and dressed sharply! He created the perfect vibe for our evening do, keeping the dance floor busy all night.
Will clearly loves what he does and it made us so happy he could share our day with us.
Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you!
Very best wishes,
Felicity & Niall".
Cotswold DJ i.am.Will, did a fantastic job DJing for our Wedding at Mickleton Hills Farm. He made everyone feel really welcome and we couldn't recommend him more ! Every song was perfectly suited to us and our wedding guests and the time of night. We also need to thank our amazing guests for showing us their incredible dance moves all night!.
Once again thank you so much Will, we also love the video!
Sophia and Rhys xx
“'There is nothing that was too much trouble for Will in the run up to our wedding. We felt that our music requirements would be seen as quite picky but Will put us completely at ease and always reminded us throughout that this is our wedding and whatever music we wanted needed to matter to us. Will made time to meet with up before the wedding to go through his set up process, and a run through of some playlists he has. Will not only guided us around music but also gave us some great ideas in terms of the running order of the day and made the suggestion of a 'last dance' which worked really well.
Will is so polite and engaging and even at the end of the night after he had worked all evening into the early hours, he made a point of coming to
find myself and my husband to wish us all the best.
Lovely lovely guy and became a big part of our
day and the atmosphere. Thank you SO much Will!'
Thanks again and all the best!
Leesa and Matt
Sorry this has taken so long.
I can speak on behalf of both of us in thanking you for helping to make our wedding night such a perfect occasion. We have been recommending you to anyone and everyone we speak to about weddings!
We and everyone there, were so happy with your performance on the night. Especially the father of the bride who was really happy with you honouring his requests to play his favourite song 'I've gotta feeling!' more then once!
Many, many thanks.
We wanted to extend a heartfelt thanks to Will for helping ensure a fantastic night for our daughter's 18th birthday party. The atmosphere created by the lighting was excellent. Will's sound system, and choice of music all coupled with some fantastic laser lights ensured the dance floor was buzzing all night long. Both young and slightly older guests had a great time dancing to a brilliant mix of old favourites and current hits. It was wonderful to see everyone enjoying themselves and singing along. Will was meticulous in his preparation, friendly and professional and we would heartily recommend him to all our friends.
Alex and Kate
We were so grateful to have Will as DJ for our wedding. He took the time to get to know us and our music preferences, and kept the party atmosphere going all night! Despite our very diverse tastes, he managed to move between loads of different tunes and take requests from our guests too. The lighting effects were an awesome addition!
Katie and Jon x
Many thanks Will, the kit hire system and music provided was excellent, and really helped add to a very successful evening. Great service.
John Taylor Winchcombe Cycling Club
We just wanted to thank Will for making our evening wedding reception so fantastic! Will was great from the minute we first made enquiries, a perfect mixture of professional, friendly, helpful and always on hand to answer any questions we had along the way. The planning meeting was fun, and Will put together a play list that included everything we had asked for, and also suggestions for keeping the dance floor moving. Together with his willingness to accomodate all requests on the night, this made for an amazing evening. He transformed the dance floor at the venue into a romantic and stunning area. The light displays show up really well on the photographs,and we have lovely memories of a truly wonderful evening reception. We would highly recommend Will to our friends and family. Thank you Will. lots of love from Diane and Keith xxxx
Both my wife and I would like to say a huge thank you to Will for helping to create a wedding reception to remember. Will's variety of music ensured a good time was had by all and his use of lighting was spot on. Will really varied the genres of music to accomodate the younger guests as well as the older guests and even the ultra fussy Groom. Everyone was up and dancing right to the end and having the time of their lives. Even the man himself was dancing and enjoying himself behind his decks which was great to see. Will's preparation was thorough and he went above and beyond to ensure the night was perfect for both of us. He's a great guy with such a bright personality who clearly loves his job.
I will definitely be looking to hire Will again for any future events!
Rich and Rhian
Although we have already thanked you via social media, we wanted to say another HUGE thank you for the amazing night you gave us on the evening of our wedding day on the 10th September at Stonebarn.
The music was spot on, and the lighting was magical! We loved how involved you were with us all, but in a not over the top kind of way! All our guests have commented on how wonderful the DJ was! You really were Will and we are so thankful.
You have been such a pleasure to deal with, since we first met you at the Stone Barn open evening right through to the end of our wedding day.
We would certainly highly recommend you to all!
All our love and many thanks,
Emma and Jeremy
A bit late in getting round to this but simply had to send you the 'biggest' thanks for what was an amazing disco at our wedding at Foxhill Manor a couple of weeks ago.
You were so enthusiastic from the first contact I had with you and that did not change in any way and it was more than obvious that you love your job!! ...
It was great that you were happy for me to give you the playlist but you still helped in terms of what to play when and it did not go unnoticed that you played music you knew Roy liked when he appeared in the room to try to keep him on the dance floor!!!! ( Not being the greatest lover if dancing!).
Your attention to detail with not just the music but the lighting (loved the white stars!!!) and the whole layout of the room, which you put a lot of thought, into was second to none and I am sure is not the norm for DJ's!
You went above and beyond for us on the night and we all thought you were fantastic. Just wish we could do it all again!! :-)
Tamsin and Roy
"We could not have been happier with the music, lighting and atmosphere that Will created for our wedding on 9th May 2015. Our friends and family love a good dance and Will kept the dancefloor alive throughout the night. The lighting was exceptional and transformed the already beautiful venue into something magical. The lighting was really versatile and Will adapted it throughout the night: from classy tones for the first dance, to disco lights and lasers for the dance anthems. Will took the time and effort to understand us and made sure we were comfortable with the music that he planned to play. And to top it all off Will went the extra mile and made a video of our evening party, which we have watched over and over again to relive the night. Thank you so much - we are so pleased we chose you as our wedding DJ. The new Mr and Mrs Draycott"
Will, we want to thank you SO much for Saturday night. It was amazing, we had the best time on our very special day!! The music was tops & we've had lots of people message us saying how awesome the party was & how enthusiastic and great you were.
The pictures are fabulous (& funny), we've shared them on my Facebook page so friends/family can see them too. They will definitely enjoy them!
Thanks for being a breeze to work with. You kindly offered us a meeting pre-wedding. Even though Brad & I unfortunately didn't have the time to meet up before the wedding (we are last minute people), it didn't matter at all - you were able to sort our music to exactly our taste, based on a few emails from us! Legend! We'll certainly recommend you highly to anyone getting married in the Cotswold area. Thanks for making our day the best & an absolute dream - Hana & Brad xx
We just wanted to say what a great job you did for our wedding at Stone Barn on the 3rd August.
As you probably guessed we had an absolute ball on our wedding day and night, and absolutely loved hearing all our favourite songs during the evening. You definitely kept the crowd entertained with the music and your truly amazing lighting setup!
Thank you for everything you did on the day and before hand. Being based over in Sydney it totally put us at ease, that you were so organised. You really added the personal touch to our big day.
The App service you offer is simply awesome! It made selecting the music not only very easy but great fun too. An amazing extra service to have on our phones. This meant even when we were out and about and heard a track we loved, we could just add it straight away to our playlist.
Thanks again for everything, and we really hope we meet again one day.
“Book Will, he`s great!!”
Lots of love,
Cat and Tom
Will you made our day spectacular, and we look back at the video you made for us with constant smiles on our faces.
You put so much care into what you do and the fact that Andy and Jade and Chloe and Lawrence chose you too is a testament to how much that care pays off.
Thank you again Will.
Ed and Leanne Draycot.
This is a huge thank you for all your professional help, from meeting us at the venue Dumbleton hall prior to the date, to discussing all that you provide for the successful evening party at my daughter and son in law wedding on the 12/12/15. It was amazing.
Your help with suggestions for the play list proved to be a great success with everyone.
We would and will recommend you to all friends and family.
Best wishes and thanks again Aj Bateman xxxxxxxxx
I wanted to just drop you a quick note to say a very late but heart felt thank you! Our wedding day was perfect in every way and we had the most fantastic time! ...
Below is a review I hope you can use...
'I believed that when i started my wedding preparations and looking at vendors that the DJ would be the easiest thing. I quickly realised that not only are there a lot of DJ's out there, but you are putting the whole evenings celebrations in one persons hands. What if they do not know the music we like? What if they just play what they want? What if they mess up the first dance? I am as always a pessimist!
We came across Will through our venues Stone Barn s open days. Here he talked us through with great passion his craft. And it was then that I realised that this was in fact a craft that he takes seriously and not just some music being played!
We obviously booked Will, and he planned a meeting with us to discuss music over coffee. When we got to our meeting Will wanted to know all about us, how we met, what our 'love story' is. When then got don to the music choices and he had such a great process for ensuring that on the night we would both together and separately been included in the evening's festivities. We even included some favourite songs of my daughters who is only 6.. Moana all the way!
When our big day came, and the evening took over, it was clear that all the questions and planning that Will had done, was now paying off! The music was fantastic all night, the guests had the best time and there was never a time where the dance floor was not full!
Thank you so much Will for the being part of the best day of our lives and for sharing the fantastic photographs you took too!
Tiffany & Daniel
Mr & Mrs Smart
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for being our DJ for our special day on 31st March 2017 at Stone Barn.
We are so glad we made contact with you through our venue and your prompt and detailed response gave us great confidence that we had made the... right choice for our musical entertainment and DJ for the evening of our wedding.
It was fantastic to meet with you at our planning meeting, such a great idea to get together and discuss our likes and dislikes, and also the music our guests might like. Compiling the list with you afterwards was fun an exciting and we couldn’t wait to dance to our favourites, and see the joy on our guests faces when we had included some of their all-time faves also!
On the day itself it was so lovely to get a warm and friendly welcome from you, and a big congrats on all that we had done that day! The lights and subtle music that welcomed our evening guests in were classy and created a romantic feel and really set the tone for the night ahead.
Our first dance was so enjoyable and with the pictures and video we have received from our suppliers ,they have captured the beautiful star lights fantastically!
Due to the planning, attention to detail from you and liaising with us, meant that our dance floor was never quiet all night. Our guests and Simon and I had the most fantastically fun time, with lots of remarks about how great fun you were. Each time we looked over to you, you were genuinely having a ball too – we loved that!!! You made sure there was something for everyone and handle request perfectly by also having the knowledge of our dislikes as well, which made it a truly amazing night! We really felt on top of the World!
Thank you so much for your help in making our special day so fantastic, you really did everything right and its great hearing about your passion for being the right type of Wedding DJ! We think we would have been so disappointed with anyone else!
Best wishes and we hope to boogie at another wedding with you soon,
Steph and Simon Mills
(31st March 2017) – Stone Barn
From the moment we first called Will to discuss our wedding, we knew he was the man for the job. Bags of enthusiasm and extremely accommodating, he went over and above in trying to understand our requirements (we were probably NOT the easiest of clients to work with). He was incredibly receptive to all of our feedback, and always returned calls and emails promptly.
Will’s light and speaker system looked and sounded fantastic… definitely not your usual cheesy disco setup. This was important for us, because there is little point in agonising over your wedding decoration if the DJ turns up with a van of naff kit. He tidies cables, hides stands/tripods, considers what lighting will work best at different times of the evening and is great on the mic. The overall effect really was very, very impressive.
It was clear that Will enjoyed the evening as much as we did (he didn’t stop dancing!), and the result was a party we’ll never forget. We can honestly say we would absolutely not hesitate to use Will again should the need arise. Don’t underestimate the importance of a good DJ for your wedding night… BOOK WILL !!!!.
Andy and Amy ( Hyde Barn Stow on the Wold)
We thought that Will was fantastic, he read the crowd and got everyone into the spirit of things, he dealt with impromptu requests without missing a step and got the perfect song for the bouquet toss!
The music and lights were great and he helped to make our night an amazing one with friends and family."
Ian and Anna
"Will is a fantastic DJ, his song choice and playlist meant that our wedding guests were dancing from the minute that the first song was played right up until the end of the last song. Every time that we looked over at the dance floor (which the bride didn't leave) it was full with people dancing, singing along and (on one occasion) even taking their shirt off! His gig log is fantastic, a great memory that we will watch over and over to remind us of our special day. Will really does go above and beyond the normal stereotype of a wedding DJ and made our wedding reception a night that 180 people will not forget".
Once again thank you for being part
of our special day and for being fantastic.
All the best,
James and Rachael
Rosie and I just wanted to drop you a quick note to say a huge thank you for doing such a superb job on our wedding day before Christmas.
You're a true gent and your attention to detail and passion for the job was fantastic, and hugely appreciated! So many of our guests have commented on how good the music was and particularly how personalised it was to us as well – The Vibo App you use to help with selecting our music was inspired, and a massive help.
Your filming of the dance floor throughout the evening as well has been one of our favourite mementos from the day and has allowed us to relive the evening over and over!
Thanks again and all the very best,
Rosie and Simon
As a hotelier catering for a lot of weddings and functions, I have come in contact with a lot of DJ's and groups. I can assure any prospective brides and function organisers , i.am.Will, is simply THE BEST.
Its always been a pleasure working with him when he is booked for Dumbleton Hall Hotel.
We cannot thank you enough Will for making the evening do at our Wedding on 30th September incredible! As soon as I chatted with you following my initial enquiry I knew you were going to do an excellent job DJ’ing at our wedding. Your attention to detail, thoughtfulness & passion is amazing & it really sets you apart. You have constantly gone above & beyond; with all your song planning, meeting us & getting to know what we wanted our evening to be like, thoughtful ideas to include all our guests & family – we could not have asked for more. The result was an incredible party, amazing songs, wonderful lights & ambience – in short the perfect night & something we will be talking about for years & years to come. We have had so many compliments from friends & family who enjoyed the night. Thank you so so much –we are incredibly glad we found you! Mrs & Mrs Jaquin.
Thank you so much for everything. Everybody had such a great time and the photos are also fab. It was the perfect way to finish off an amazing day. You read the people and the night perfectly & the dance floor was never empty. You even got the quietest & shyest of guests up dancing. Thank you for being the cherry on top of the cake, that ...was our day. We can't recommend you enough.
Emily & Adam.
A very belated but very BIG THANK YOU for your amazing music and DJing at Matt`s 40th party. It was such a fantastic night, hugely thanks to the awesome tunes pumping out all night long!! And of course the fantastic lighting and lasers!! They really made the night. I think nearly every single person has said how much they loved the music and lighting, you made it feel like a London nightclub rather than a village hall !
It was lovely to see you again having last seen you DJing down in Devon, and we really appreciate you driving over this way to do it. Julia my sister has now asked whether you would travel to Yorkshire, and we understand you might also be DJing now for our friend’s wedding in August.
Have a great summer I don`t doubt you will be extremely busy.
Thanks again you made the night simply awesome!

"Will DJ-ed our wedding at Cripp's Barn in July. From our first interaction to the day itself Will was an absolute star. He was totally professional whilst making us feel so comfortable.
The app that he uses is so handy and great for putting in your first dance, songs that you want played (and even ones you definitely don't). We had a great Facetime with Will, where he got to know us and set our minds at ease that we were all on the same page.
On the big day I honestly do not know how Will got into the venue and set up so swiftly and slickly, we didn't notice him at all until we were ready for the first dance. From that moment until 1am he had people up dancing, and there were even guests trying to pay him to keep playing at the end of the night!
Will knew exactly how to mix songs from all ages and all tempos to keep everyone having an amazing time.
His lighting was so incredible too and really made the dancefloor a magical place to be.
We honestly couldn't recommend him enough and are happy to be contacted by anyone who's considering hiring him for any occasion.
Jess & Neirin"
Will, we can't thank you enough for the fantastic evening celebration show you put on for us! It was a wonderful evening, nothing was a problem for you, you are very professional and would definitely recommend your services to anyone! Thanks again!
James and Laura.
Hi Will ( for your website and from the heart)
I had a great birthday party. Thanks so much for the making the party go so well- I had so many compliments about the music. Simon and I were impressed how well you read the audience and played music that kept everyone dancing. The lighting really added to the atmosphere - who would have thought we were in a village hall.
Jan & Simon.
Three weddings with one incredible DJ!
Will Djed for when I was best man for Ed and Leaane, and then at our wedding, and at the weekend for my sister Chloe’s wedding!
As always Will, you absolutely pulled out all the stops and had us well and truly dancing the night away! Your whole set was perfect and i cannot speak highly enough of you! I sincerely hope we haven't danced our last dance infront of you!
Andy and Jade Wickens.
CALLING ALL BRIDES AND GROOMS WHO WANT AN EPIC WEDDING!!!
What we wanted for our day was for it feel entirely personal to us, followed by an epic party into the evening to celebrate.
We ummed and ahhed about
booking a band or a DJ, but were
mainly worried about it being a
cheesy affair which is not what we
wanted for us or our family and friends!
We opted for a band at first and were going to just have a playlist, but I saw Will and some of his kit at the Stone Barn open day. I contacted him to see if he was 1) available on our date, 2) able to offer what we needed i.e. to DJ for us in between and after our band had played, and 3) to make sure he was not a cheesy wedding DJ. From our first correspondence, Will was fantastic. Enthusiastic, responsive, and most of all clearly hell bent on working with us to ensure he put together the music WE loved and wanted played at our wedding to make sure we would be happy and have the best day possible. He certainly delivered. He knew the venue well so was able to give us advice about his set up and our band’s set up and what would work best for us.
Will will work with you so if you want some 90s Garage mixed with Brit Pop and some R&B smashes like we did, he will find it, play it and mix it so it all works together seamlessly. We had so many compliments from our guests about how great the music and lights were, in fact, the party Will helped throw for us was so epic, we’re already lining Will up to DJ at Rich’s 40th (albeit that is in another 4 years’ time)! In particular Will lasers and stars as they were so cool! which you can clearly see from our evening photos (some of which Will took for us).
Thanks again Will, you helped complete our day with the most awesome night with everyone singing and dancing until after hours and we will never forget it!
Laura & Rich x
Thank you for helping to making our wedding day perfect! You have been brilliant from the start, easy to communicate with, helping us all the way and making Stone Barn looked absolutely brilliant!! You even liaised with the band before the day, which took a weight off our minds.
We will strongly recommend Will to all of our friends and family
Thanks again we hope we cross paths with you again in the future
Luke and Natalie.
Will was the DJ for our wedding on 31.05.17 Cripps Barn,and we honestly couldn't have asked for anyone better. The music was brilliant and really set the mood for the night. Our guests had an absolutely fantastic time and our legs were numb from dancing by the end of the night, and there were a few sore voice from all the singing!!
Will was so lovely and fun and listened to exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much Will for being such a huge part of our day and making it SO special.
Lauren and Jayne Cobain
I first got in touch with Will because he was local to Foxhill Manor, our Wedding venue. The first thing I said to him was that I do not want a cheesy 'goal post' DJ setup and that I wanted someone who could create the perfect ambience and atmosphere for our lively wedding evening. Will listened to every word and provided it all.
He worked with a musician of my choice (a percussionist), and they just worked so well together. Until the evening Will had never met Ash).
Will, Samantha and I would like to thank you for all your hard work which provided us with the most perfect Wedding party. I really hope we have a chance to work together again in the future.
For all of you enquiring or looking for a DJ for your event then seriously stop right now.... Will is the perfect man for the job!
We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything on Friday. We have had such an unbelievable amount of compliments about 'the DJ' and how you kept the vibe up all night. I wish we could share them all but honestly so many people have messaged and said how fun it was, how the music was brilliant, and that the DJ was lovely!
So thanks so much for that. It really helped make it such an amazing day! You were brilliant!
Best wishes and happy Christmas!
Anna and Tim

Will was the DJ for the evening entertainment at our wedding in October 2016, and he was absolutely fantastic!
Will was extremely professional, and he created the right atmosphere for the evening by being really approachable and engaging with us and the guests, without being overpowering like you hear of some DJs.
Will worked with us before our wedding to create a tailored playlist and was great in suggesting a mix of songs that fitted perfectly with those that we wanted.
The light show that went alongside the DJ set was awesome, a number of our guests commented that it was the best they had seen for that kind of event, and it was great in creating a real feel-good party atmosphere fitting for our day.
Marcus & Alice x
We just wanted to drop you a note to say a very big thank you for providing such an excellent DJ ing service. You certainly did a fabulous job at making our magical day even more special.
Lots of our guests have been very complimentary about your sunny personality and the awesome tunes that kept the dance floor grooving. We absolutely love the video as a keep sake of all of the dance floor shenanigans! Even my mum was bustin' some moves!!
Thank you so much.
With very best regards,
Emilie and David
"Will's level of service and organisation was second to none. While an integral part of our wedding on the actual evening, it was his advice, guidance, and attention to detail in the days and weeks leading up, that really added such tremendous value to our overall wedding. A proactive counsel of advice on how to truly bring the evening to life, Will was constantly on hand to make suggestions in relation to play lists, the first dance, lighting, and ensuring how all the entertainment (band, cutting of the cake et al.) could link together.
On the evening itself, Will had a fantastic manner with everyone who approached him, being flexible to requests that were made, while also ensuring that the 'brief' we gave him was stuck to and not over-ridden by any over-zealous guests.
It would not be a claim too far to suggest that without WIll the wedding simply wouldn't have been the same.
We wouldn't hesitate to use Will's services again, and in fact, we fully intend to, when an opportunity presents itself in the future. Even if we have to make him travel outside his usual area to do so!
Book him. One of the best decisions you'll make for your wedding".
Andy and Sindy.
Will was amazing from start to finish. He covered all our needs, went above and beyond and made sure we had the best night ever. The dance floor was packed the whole time and guests are still saying what bangers he played!! He worked closely with the band to ensure the evening ran smoothly and has made an amazing video of the night as well.
Thank you thank you love the Dillon’s x
Jess and I have just come back to reality after a whirlwind week and a half off since the wedding. Still buzzing from the wedding day! We simply had to email to thank you for being so amazing before and during our big day!
You gave us the best experience we could have asked for and exceeded our expectations. You did this in three areas:
- Customer Experience:
You were way more organised than any wedding DJ we or our friends have encountered. You had all the information we needed on your website. You came back to us quite quickly with a detailed quote and were even proactive enough to speak to the venue to get some of the finer details sorted. This meant we had very little to worry about and we quickly understood that you were doing everything possible to make the day go smoothly. The music selection on the App was also very useful and easy to use. This meant that we could be as prescriptive as we liked when it came to the playlist (or equally, trust you to use your artistic licence); making the whole experience stress free!
- Music / lighting:
This was incredible! The lighting was spectacular (even without the haze J). You really read the crowd when it came to the music – playing some mellow tunes while everyone was digesting their dinner, ramping it up with some classics and then getting everyone (both young and old) singing at the top of their voices, to end the evening’s shenanigans. And you used our song choices selected from the App at appropriate moments and supplemented it with other great tunes. We really loved every minute of your set!
As if the above wasn’t enough, you went out of your way to provide even more. The photos you took of the evening were amazing. Since you sent them first thing the next morning, they were also the first high quality photos we had of the day. This is such a nice touch and was really unexpected from our DJ! Finally, you always had kind and reassuring words for us in the lead up to the day and on the evening itself – it meant we were able to enjoy ourselves from start to finish.
You’re an awesome human being and a spectacular wedding entertainer. We feel really privileged that you were a part of our wedding day and can’t thank you enough. Jess and I really appreciate all that you did for us, to make our day so special. We’ll be recommending you to any friends getting married in the Cotswolds!
Firstly, we love this video! It's great! Thank you! xx
Harry and I have had SO many comments from our guests about how amazing you were and how much they enjoyed the music and lighting at our reception, and the comments are still flooding in days later.
We can't recommend you highly enough, and are trying to come up with a plan for another event just so we can book you again!
You truly gave us the amazing wedding reception we wanted and we can't thank you enough.
If there is anything more you need, please let us know. Please feel free to add our comments and video to any media platforms you like.
Thanks again Will.
Lots of love,
Faye and Harry
Thank you so much, you managed just from meeting us once before the day to create something better than we could of imagined from the music to the lights, the smoke and set up was amazeing we can`t thank you enough, it was like I said amazing. We would love to come along on the 15th to your charity night.
Thankyou so much,
Maria and Mathew x

Thank you so much for providing such a great atmosphere at my 70th party on Saturday. Your slot came after the brilliant live band 16 Strings and a Dead Goat- and the transition from live music to disco was faultless.Though out the evening you gauged the situation perfectly and kept the dance floor full all night. As you know Ebrington is always up for a party- so you had willing participants, nevertheless you worked your magic flawlessly. Also, although you were nevertheless unobtrusive and you video tableaux were shot without intrusion. Thanks for orchestrating such a great evening. Best regards, Louise
