About Steven Heyns

I am a founding member of The Wedding DJ and come with a wealth of experience DJ’ing at weddings in KZN over the last 15 years. I specialise in young and fun celebrations, and am well known for getting the party started and keeping the dance floor full all night long without the need to play cheesy songs. At 40 years young I have the ability to connect to any crowd, young or old.

I cater for all ages during the evening and play well known songs which have been absolute hits over the years. A normal set will include a good balance of the latest and greatest hits currently on the airwaves, as well as pop and rock classics from the last few decades (70’s, 80’s , 90’s and early 2000’s). Getting the music right on the night is extremely important to me.

Most importantly, I am not a Club DJ, and am 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.

My reputation was built on excellent service and reliability, but most importantly great music. I love what I do and look forward to being part of your wedding celebration.

Simply the best!

This review is so long overdue - but if you are still looking for your DJ/MC/Photo Booth you can stop here! Our wedding was truly amazing and we give a huge amount of credit to Steven Heyns and Jonathan for that - it was absolutely amazing to work with you from start to finish! Living in New Zealand, I thought communication would be a bit difficult but Steven was always so responsive and even made time for us during the busy December period, when we came home to get married, for a site visit. Our wedding truly reflected...

5 outta 5! Thank you Steve! Dealing with our disorganisation and "winging-it" vibe, Steve came to the party...well, he MADE THE PARTY. Very easy to work with and professional. Such good music and positive attitude. (Everyone asked us for the list of songs afterwards.) The photo booth was a hit and now we have even more lovely memories. Thank you to the both of you for being such good sports for the evening.

Steven and his brother were outstanding! Absolutely professional and when given the challenge of DJ'ing a Greek/Irish wedding, Steven rose to the task and outdid himself! The choice of music was absolutely perfect and played to everybody's tastes, young and old! The photo booth is such a great addition and our guests really had such fun with it! Thank you Steven Heyns, you made our day incredible!

Excellent excellent DJ! We had only chatted a few times over WhatsApp before and I didn't even check that he arrived on the day... but he was there and executed everything exactly to our wishes. Then later on he kept the party going so well, reading the crowd perfectly! Highly recommend The Wedding DJ! thank you so much for making our day a wonderful party!!!

Steven and his brother were absolutely amazing. They were so professional and incredibly friendly. Everything they did was subtle, perfect and they served with absolute excellence.
They were worth every penny and so much more.
Thank you so much Steven. You made our day extra magical.

Our Story

The Wedding DJ was founded by Brendon Funnell, John Roux and I in April 2009 on the principles of great music, world class service and utmost reliability.  

With our like-minded love for great music and attention to detail, we quickly built a reputation for being amongst the best wedding DJs in South Africa , and even won a few awards along the way (The SABIA gold award in the Wedding DJ category amongst others). Brendon and John have since hanged up their earphones to spend more time with their families, and now provide a support function to The Wedding DJ,  standing by in case of emergencies.  

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