Customer Reviews

Dave was the Dj at our wedding and he was absolutely fantastic. Arranging our wedding from Ireland immediately added a difficult element to the planning, but Dave made it all so easy. He was friendly, informative and from our first meeting we knew we had met the right man. On the night Dave was a star, helped keep the night flowing and people on the dance floor. A lovely touch was seeing our new Mr and Mrs name in lights on the dance floor. Was a fantastic night!

When we were first looking for wedding DJ's we were drawn to Incawed as Dave was very responsive and was very professional. We met up for a coffee to discuss our needs for the day, he quickly put a package together for us at a competitive price. Leading up to our wedding we used his intuitive client area to add song requests etc. Just as we were counting down the days to the wedding COVID hit! Dave was very professional and accommodating with our needs to move dates and change our package to meet COVID restrictions. The wedding day was perfect, Dave had recorded our speeches and professionally edited them, designed a GOBO pattern so we could have our name in lights, hosted a quiz and played some amazing tunes. I would not hesitate to have Dave Dj at any other function!

☆☆☆ EXCEPTIONAL ☆☆☆ If you want just a DJ - don't come to Dave. ! If you want someone who is a professional and will put his heart and soul into your special day - then contact Dave. ! Dave and his assistant did an absolutely FANTASTIC job on our wedding day (22-02-20). This is a trade which I highly underestimated until I saw the end result, but I can say with all sincerity that you should get the best out there and by far INCANDESCANCE is the best out there. I highly recommend Dave and his team and will, with no doubt be using his services in the future. Once again thank you Dave for a momentous day we will never forget you !

Just... WOW! Lovely to know that the service you provide is well received with clients and their guests... Thank you so very much Terance & Kate - it was an honour to celebrate your wedding day with you!

Incandescence's response

Dave at Incandescence was a fantastic DJ and MC at our wedding. The music and lighting he provided set the theme excellently and we and the guests had a blast. We highly recommend Incandescence to people planning their wedding. Dave provides a friendly and professional service, and will give you plenty of time and scope to discuss your wedding needs. In addition, we found the client website Incandescence provided very useful and it was easy for us and our guests to select songs.

Dave at Incandescence was everything we wanted (and needed!) from a wedding DJ; kind, cool and happy to answer any question about a wedding (even those questions you don't know who to ask). On the day the setup was excellent with nice background music during the meals, microphones for the speeches (which can be recorded, and is excellent to pass onto those that couldn't make it on the day!) and just a great set for the evening. Thank you so much :-D

Dave meet us six months before our Wedding to discuss a number of things about our special day. It was after this 1st meeting that we knew we had defiantly selected ‘The best disco’, we were amazed by the lovely touches such as:- -Background music during Wedding Breakfast. -Use of microphone for speeches. -Even speakers outside for when guests arrived and during the evening with music playing (this was a great tough esp as the sun did shine for us on our Wedding Day) -Our name in lights (Mr & Mrs Taylor) spinning on the dance floor during the disco....we even got to choose the style of font via the Incandescence website. -Via the website we were also able to select,preview (listen) to a catalogue of tracks and if we liked create our own unique playlist (but also Dave was still able to play requests on the evening) Incandescence offers a truely special Wedding Package and isn’t just a disco that will turn up a play the music they have.....they will listen to you, what you like and want you perhaps don’t like and then deliver on this. Dave and we also must mention you good lady Vicky you are truly awesome company and would recommend you to anyone,thanks again, Mr and Mrs Taylor.

Exemplary service and amazing DJ.

Have you used Incandescence many times, always a very professional service. Will be using it again in March.

Dave was excellent at our wedding, played the perfect music throughout which linked in well with our brief of music type. He also had full control of everything during the day and evening of the wedding, everyone loved the atmosphere and created a great celebration wedding party that will never be forgotten.

Dave was excellent at our wedding, played the perfect music throughout which linked in well with our brief of music type. He also had full control of everything during the day and evening of the wedding, everyone loved the atmosphere and created a great celebration wedding party that will never be forgotten. He worked well with everyone involved including the venue owners (which was particularly important as they have a sound limiter), the organisers, all of the guests and us as well. We would thoroughly recommend him as he helped may our day perfect and memorable.

I run an entertainment company and have worked closely together with Dave on 5 Weddings this year. Dave is very professional and ALWAYS does a fantastic job. He really knows how to read a crowd and work the dance floor. Guests and clients alike love him and he always goes that extra mile to make sure everybody is happy! I wouldn't use anybody else for our events.

Dave and Vicky, at Incandescence, were our presenter, DJ and organiser for a Photo Booth and lightning arrangements at our wedding - including our name in lights. Leading up to the big day, we had several meetings to discuss what we wanted with all the fine detail. Dave delivered everything we asked for and really made our day special. We were extremely pleased with the layout, lighting effects and how the setup was performed and handled. Dave is a true professional in this area. We would no hesitate to use Incandescence again.

Dave did a great job in helping everything run smoothly for our wedding. His equipment was very professional and looked great, he was more than helpful in preparation to the big day, and the set up was not at all intrusive despite the fact that he catered for background music over dinner, the ceremony music, background music and the evening set. The option to have preferred tracks and 'avoid' tracks was great as we didn't want too many cheesy classics on the day which was perfect. Couldn't have gone better and couldn't recommend more highly!

Dave was a brilliant and l loved the fact we could choose our fav music! Fab disco fab person fab price xxxx

Dave is an excellent DJ. He’s thoroughly professional, but with a relaxed manner. We appreciated the chance to chat with him during the booking process, which meant he got to know us and fully understood the relaxed and lowkey approach we wanted. His massive choice of music meant all our needs were covered and it was great that he sourced the songs not already in his library. We especially loved having the option to choose our “must play” songs (and “must not plays”!) Dave’s excellent service ensured that we had a brilliant night dancing away to all our favourite tunes, with our favourite people!

Absolutely top notch organisation in the lead up to the wedding and a really solid performance during the evening reception. Everyone loved the DJ and the music flowed really well. Can't recommend highly enough!

Dave was brilliant on our wedding day. He even organised a unique piano version of Everything I Do to be created especially for me to walk down the isle. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Thanks so much for making our wedding day wonderful

Incandescence was brilliant for our wedding. Dave did such a good job, he is easy to talk to and very reliable. I also really like that we could pick the music we wanted and did not want to be played through Incandescence's website. Very good value for money.

Dave was a fantastic host and gave us everything we wanted for our special day. Everything ran so smoothly and he responded so well to our guests taste. He knew, before we did, what we wanted and we would not hesitate to use him again. We loved it so much we were the last ones on the dance floor after our guests had left. We can't praise Dave and his team enough.

We can’t recommend Dave highly enough! He ran the evening disco for our wedding and did a fantastic job from start to finish. From going out of his way to find a song by an independent local artist that we wanted to use for our first dance to managing a dance floor that was never empty for the entire evening, his approach was superb. All of our guests had a great time as he kept everyone dancing all night.

Thank you for your fantastic entertaining at out wedding. We had a great time and loved that you managed to play all the music from our play list plus other stuff that was our guests asked for. Looking back on our photos everyone looked like they had a great time including ourselves you gave us the best wedding and party we could ever of asked for. We can't wait to start recommending you to our family and friends for future events. 5* amazing company.

Excellent service, a genuine person who'll do anything for you, felt more like having a friend than being a customer

I was delighted to have Dave and his colleague at Incandescence provide the music for my wedding dinner/reception in April. My fiancee and I met with Dave about a month before the wedding to discuss our preferences and the playlist of songs that we wanted to have at the event. His professionalism, knowledge of his craft, and attentiveness to our requests gave us peace of mind, which is priceless when you have so many details to consider and coordinate. Our guests were thrilled with the entertainment, as were we, and we truly appreciate Dave making everything run seamlessly throughout the event. I would highly recommend Incandescence to others planning special occasions.

Great experience, did just what we wanted and didn't need to be told what we wanted twice, just got on with it. Very professional.

I would very kindly refer you to my review on Incandescence Disco's profile page. Dave was quick to respond to queries and questions. His set up on our day was above what we had asked for so when I asked for a mic, I got one without a moment's notice. Having someone with some experience of what people like to hear at weddings as well as someone who was able to incorporate some more personalised choices, well, we couldn't have been happier.

Amazing DJ everyone one on the dance floor it made our wedding night fantastic! Would highly recommend!

Dave's someone I know from work and who has been in charge of the music at the Silverstone Half Marathon as well as the larger London Marathon. I asked him if he knew anyone who could DJ at my wedding and he said, "Me?" My fiancée (now wife!!) and I met with Dave and when we left, we walked away very happy indeed. Dave is someone you can trust to cater to your needs, regardless of how big or small they are. He can tone down his operation or upscale if needed. He understands your day and will fit in with it. He's got experience in doing this and it shows. We had a request list online prior to the wedding to submit songs that we wanted to have played as well as enabling guests to also nominate songs that they'd like to hear. We were fortunate to have power of veto but didn't have need of it. Come the big day, it was time to light the lights, it was time to play the music and everything was seamless. We heard every single one of the songs that meant something to us. If Dave ever had need to go rifling through his BIG catalogue, we almost didn't notice because a) he's good with his choices, b) the dance floor was full of people and c) everybody was having a great time. We had lots of positive feedback afterwards from our guests. If we ever have need of a DJ again, Dave would be our first choice.

Not being the most musical couple in the world, we needed a DJ who would be able to advise on and organise all our musical needs for our wedding. Dave was incredible from day one, being flexible and professional in all aspects of the build up. A very friendly and calming voice on the end of the phone, whose huge experience definitely shines through. The dance floor was packed all night, and we could not have wished for a more smooth process from start to finish. Highly recommended!

Dave is a dream to work with, knowledgeable in his field. He was supportive pre event showing malleability and innovation, coupled with calmness. On the day he executed effectively and seamlessly providing the music as planned and where we gave him poetic license he hit the brief spot on. I would recommend unequivocally Dave’s services as a wedding music provider. Matthew Jordan

Dave has provided me with discos for various events over the years, and most recently and importantly, my own wedding! Time and time again I am happy to work with Dave and Incandescence thanks to his utmost professionalism, discretion (especially important if you're planning a surprise!) reliability, flexibility and warm and friendly approach in catering to all my (I’ll admit it) whims and demands. I’d have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Incandescence for your event.

We used Incandescence Disco in September for our wedding. I highly recommend Dave, he was brilliant. Very professional and also a lot of fun. My husband and I chose a lot of the music which was great. The application we used was very easy and Dave also helped to find some of the songs for us which were not on there. Total Star xx

Dave was recommended by a friend and I have to say I found him extremely helpful, adaptable and knowledgeable when planning our evening disco. He set up an online system for our quests to request songs and I don't think there was a song he couldn't track down. Having put together a lengthy playlist, he then responded admirably to last minute requests from the dancefloor. I couldn't fault any aspect of the service he provided and would happily recommend him to others.

I worked with Dave and he had said he was a Professional DJ at weekends so I booked his services for my wedding on an Island on the Thames and he was excellent. His team took all their equipment over and set up quietly and quickly. Beforehand Dave will work with you to get the songs you want, then puts in some classics of his own. The feedback from everyone was great and the dance floor stayed filled the whole time. It was refreshing to have someone who can take requests, have everything you could possibly think of and bring a fun and cheerful demeanour to his work. He was great and my wife and I and the 120 guests highly recommend him. I will hire him for our tenth anniversary and beyond. Thanks again Dave and best wishes for your ongoing gigs :)

Incandescence provided the musical backdrop to our wedding day celebrations, Dave sourced all tracks requested for an eclectic play list and was the personification of professionalism and charm on the evening, despite my Best Man's (accidental) attempts to sabotage his power supplies! I would not hesitate in recommending Dave, and in fact did to a colleague who got married last year, the fact she sits next to me is testament to how risk-free a recommendation Incandescence is!
