Professional DJs specialising in wedding celebrations

The Wedding DJ was founded by Steven Heyns, Brendon Funnell and John Roux in April 2009 on the principels of great music, world class service and utmost reliability.   We are not Club DJs, and are well aware that your wedding is very different to any corporate event, birthday party or nightclub. It is at heart a celebration, but it needs to be conducted with the kind of professionalism, expertise and finesse that only years of actual wedding DJ experience can provide for.     Our DJs specialise in wedding celebrations and offer a fully comprehensive professional sound and DJ solution.

At The Wedding DJ we strive to create a great experience for all our bridal couples.  As part of our service offering, we will meet with you a few weeks before your wedding day to discuss the finer details which includes your music tastes (Likes and dislikes), venue setup and any additional sound requirements you may have for bands etc.  Working with your music preferences, and in conjunction with taking requests from your guests on the evening , we will ensure that your dance floor stays full all night,  and that your wedding celebration will be one your family and friends will talk about for years to come.

Our DJs are mature and happily married, and have experienced first-hand how difficult it is to choose quality suppliers who you feel comfortable with, and trust will exceed all the expectations of your wedding celebration.

Most of our DJs are based in Durban, but we will travel to all corners of Kwa-Zulu Natal and the major South African cities.

Trusted and recommended by brides, wedding venues and wedding industry professionals, The Wedding DJ has built a reputation surpassed by none.

Steven is literally the best DJ ever! We cannot thank you enough for being the DJ at our wedding! The dance floor was full the entire night – our feet are still recovering from all the dancing three days later ! We also loved the photo booth and that you saved printouts of all the guests pictures for us. We had so much fun looking through them the next day. Thank you!

The Wedding DJ (Steven Heyns) is possibly the best DJ I have ever come across. After reading some reviews on FB after a friend used him for her wedding I thought he was a good fit and I wasnt wrong. We wanted the dance floor to jump the whole night and he made it happen. Playing exactly the music that we wanted, he kept everyone having an amazing time. Better still was the photo booth The Wedding DJ offers. Everyone loved it and it was definitely one of the highlights for us and the guests. I would highly highly recommend booking The Wedding DJ.

Best DJ ever! We have been to a few weddings that Steven did and he was AMAZING! So it was a no brainer that we chose him to DJ at ours. The sound was perfect, the music awesome, the dance floor full. He even organised for us to have the lyrics of our first dance song projected onto a wall. We used his photo booth too and we are so glad we did because the photos we have are absolutely brilliant memories of all the people who attended. Thank you so much Steven! Nicky and Andre

Wedding Ceremony

The Wedding DJ can supply PA Systems in forests, on beaches, open fields or any location of your choice even if there’s no plug points around.  We have invested in battery based power supplies which can run our high end PA equipment at wedding ceremonies for up to 3 hours.     We provide the following for wedding ceremonies;

  • Music of your choice for your processional, recessional etc.
  • Cordless lapel / lavalier microphone for your marriage officer and a cordless handheld microphone for readings / vows etc if required
  • Our DJs have vast experience working with professional live musicians at wedding ceremonies.  They just have to bring their own instruments and plug into our PA System.

Pre-drinks / Canapés

A separate PA system to entertain guests with background music while the bridal party is off on the creative shoot.
We create the perfect mood with sounds from Jeremy Loops, Mumford and Sons, Angus and Julia Stone, Matthew Mole and Boyce Avenue to name but a few..

We specialise in young and fun wedding celebrations, but given our vast experience we can confidently cater for a wide variety of music styles including;

  • Commercial pop and dance
  • Rock / Indie / Alternative Rock
  • Traditional: African / Greek / Indian / Portuguese
    If it’s popular and people love it, we will play it.  We will provide a professional world-class PA System and dance floor lighting with a professional cordless microphone for speeches and a great mix of music for young and old.

Our DJ’s have over 10 years experience as wedding DJs, and have played at all the popular wedding venues in KZN. We are well known for full dance floors and playing only the best pop tunes.
