Expectations exceeded, a rarity indeed... Thank you for not only meeting our very specific music requirements, but for specialising in them. It is no longer considered a job when you love what you do, and that shone through. Thank you for making our very special day.

Mr & Mrs NixonWedding - Armathwaite Hall

We both just want to say a huge thank you for your part in making our day so special. Everyone loved the music and great to see people up and dancing all night (including some who can’t usually be dragged onto the dancefloor!). It was the perfect mix of classic bangers and more modern tunes. Honestly, great job! All the best and thanks again

Ross & BryoniWedding - The Inn On The Lake

Just wanted to say thank you to our DJ for a brilliant evening!! According to our guests he played “banger after banger” and we’ve all got sore feet this morning from all the dancing!

Fantastic DJ for our wedding at Askham Hall in March. The dance floor was full right until the end of the night and lots of our guests commented on what a great DJ we had. Dancing in the Dark were professional and easy to contact throughout the whole booking process. Thank you!

AliceWedding - Askham Hall

A massive thank you to Dancing in the Dark for being the perfect DJ on our wedding day. It was absolutely perfect, we heard so many of our favourite songs and so many of our guests were up and dancing. We had a great time. Thank you so much for your time and for helping to make the day so special.

Emily and TomWedding - The Inn On The Lake

thank you for the great work you did at our wedding at the Hundith Hill Hotel last weekend. Everything was spot on and what we hoped for - Ryan was brilliant and will certainly be recommending you guys to friends and family in the future! Thanks again.

Sarah & MarcWedding - Hundith Hill

Thank you sooo much to David and the team for putting on an amazing set for our wedding! The music was perfect for us, a good mix of everything to please everyone there of all ages! The DJ happily took my annoying requests all night long with no moaning. Music flowed really well and everyone had such a great time dancing all night to your music. Thank you again!!

DanielleWedding - Broadoaks Country House

David DJ'd for us at New House Farm. He was always prompt with email replies and really easy to deal with. We asked that he simply play the music rather than encouraging people to get up and dance, which he did. He played our guests choices and everyone was up dancing straight away until the end of the night! We would definitely recommend him.

Sarah & JoWedding - New House Farm

It was brilliant to book a DJ that was so accommodating and let us play literally anything we wanted! Thanks for helping to make our wedding one of the best parties we’ve ever been to!
