Hi , my name is Steven Heyns.   Husband to my amazing wife Susan and father of two boys Hayden and Jordan who mean everything to me.  Without their love and support I would not have been able to pursue my passion in life which is to entertain crowds with great music.
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 decade. 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 will meet with you a few weeks before your wedding to discuss your requirements and expectations. Getting the music right on the night is extremely important to me. I will therefore do my best to adjust my music selection to cater for your taste in music, while keeping your guests in mind and making sure the dance floor stays full. You are more than welcome to give me a shortlist of your favourite songs you would love at your wedding, and I’m always open to song requests from your guests, unless it’s the chicken dance.

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 (Current pop music , popular EDM like The Chainsmokers, and even alternative and Indie rock if the crowd leans that way), and pop and rock classics from the last few decades (70’s, 80’s , 90’s and early 2000’s).

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.

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!

Steven is AMAZING! He provided all the sound for our wedding on the 10th June. His DJ services are excellent. We had so many comments on how great the music was and every one danced the night away. A family member even fractured his thumb after dancing so hard :P :D He responded to every email within minutes and his friendly relaxed manner made us feel so comfortable and relaxed too. Thank you Steven for EVERYTHING. You really made our day :)

Hi Steven

Just chilling at the V&A in sunny Cpt and thought we would take 5 minutes to send our thanks.

You had everyone dancing, even in the rain, and went above and beyond helping out with the first dance songs. That photobooth is a smashing hit too!! Can’t believe how well utilised it was… especially by the kids haha.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts in making our day so special!

With love and well wishes

I cannot thank Steven and the team enough for being the DJ at our wedding. From the first moment we contacted you and until the final song was played you were brilliant. You responded to our queries almost immediately every time, always on hand with suggestions and you made us feel so calm about the whole process. The way people never left the dance floor the whole night was testament to the great music you played and the way people partied late into the night was down to the vibe you created. I would not hesitate in recommending your service to anyone! Thanks for everything !! Looking forward to hopefully seeing some footage of the night! All the best Warren and Liza

Hi Steven Mark and I want to say thank you for being the dj at Stephs & Janco's wedding. You were fantastic and kept the dancing going right through until the end. You seemlessly managed to mingle English and Afrikaans music, keeping everyone happy. We had many compliments from guests saying what great music you played and what a good party it was. Thankyou too for stepping in and organising champagne for our toasts. The photo booth was a great hit - even older guests said what fun it was. A personalised photo was a nice gift for guests to take home. Thanks again Kind regards Vicky & Mark

Steven was an incredible DJ and so professional to work with in the lead up to our wedding. On the day, our dance floor was full from the moment it opened and all of our guests had a fabulous party! Thanks so much Steven for making our day fantastic!

Dear Steven, A quick note to say thank you so much for making our wedding day so special! Our guests all had a fabulous party which I know is down to your wonderful taste in music and ability to read the crowd! We so appreciated your professional approach and having your guidance and advice on what we needed when it came to sound for our wedding. Wishing you all the best as you grow your business - we'll definitely be recommending you to any friends and family who are in need of a DJ! All the best, John and Cath

Steven was absolutely incredible from beginning to end. We met with him and just knew that we were in good hands. He wanted everything to be as perfect on the day as much as I did. Even playing my country music choices! Our guests were on the dancefloor and enjoying the photobooth the entire night! We had the most special day and I can definitely say that Steven and the team were a big part of that. Thank you guys! Spectacular service.

Steven DJ'd and did the sound at our wedding. He was efficient, reliable and went beyond the call of duty to make sure everything was perfect. We also made use of the hashtag printing and photobooth services which were a huge hit with our guests. I'd recommend the Wedding DJ : Durban to anyone planning a wedding - they know their stuff and you can count on them - one less thing to worry about on your big day! Thanks so much Steven and Co.
