Professional Wedding DJs in Durban

The Wedding DJ Durban, KZN's best wedding DJs

Music tailored to your taste

Your wedding celebration will be like no other, and deserves a great soundtrack. Therefore, at The Wedding DJ , we create bespoke music solutions working around the music tastes of our bridal couples and their guests. We don't work off set playlists as each wedding is different.

We strive to create a great experience for all our bridal couples, for that reason, 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 story

The Wedding DJ was founded by Steven Heyns, Brendon Funnell and John Roux in April 2009 on the principles 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. 

We specialise in wedding celebrations and offer a fully comprehensive professional sound and DJ solution.   Our DJs are mature, 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 throughout KZN, including Nottingham Road in the Midlands, up the North Coast to Hluhluwe and even Pongola. We have also played in Johannesburg, Cape Town and even the Free State.

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

Pre-drinks is also a great time to run the photo booth , as this will keep guests entertained while they wait for you to return from your photo shoot.

PA System and music for your wedding reception

Our most popular DJs all have more than 15 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. Our DJs own their own world class PA Equipment and are well equipped for any requirements our bridal couples might have. Unlike some DJ Agencies, the DJ you book is the DJ who will perform at your wedding.

What kind of music do we play?

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.
