Full Description
I like to offer a very personalised DJ service with which I aim to incorporate as much of your favourite music into your wedding day as is possible. Although I can offer advice and support with playlists for daytime music, my focus is traditionally on the dance floor in the evening, most often playing DJ sets of around 4 hours. In my own creative style, I like to beat-match and blend tracks as much as feels appropriate in order to create a seamless mix which builds in energy and takes in all of the music genres you love. I can supply a wide range of lighting and sound equipment to best suit your venue, including tasteful wash lighting, up-lighting, moving effect lights and a classic disco ball too. I'm also able to provide technical support and equipment for audio-visual presentations or live music performances if desired.

A genius set list.
“What can we say about Ed!!! First of all, just a massive thank you for doing such a stellar job at our wedding a few weeks ago!!! We’ve just returned from our honeymoon and even whilst away we were reflecting on what a great job you did! You were able to take a list of our favourite songs and come up with a genius set list! We received so many compliments and I think even a few of our guests were wanting to book you for their next event! You’re such a nice guy and we hope we are lucky enough to attend another event you are at!”

We love you Ed!
“Here you see the world’s most kind, amazing and musical DJ! Ed truly makes every event special and personalised for the hosts wishes! I just want to say a huge thank you. Pete and I were honoured to have you at our wedding! The dance floor was packed from start till finish! He was so good for us, that my new sister in law had to have him at her wedding too!”

It was just the best night ever!
“We recently got married and luckily Ed was available to DJ for us at our evening party. Ed was incredible, what a star! We had given him a list of tunes we love to dance to and he seamlessly weaved them in to the mix on the night, which certainly got the party going. Ed’s love for music really shone through and his mixes were epic, some of our friends rarely hit the dancefloor but Ed’s skills meant they just couldn’t resist! We also wanted to do something a little different for our first dance and Ed put together a medley of tunes for us to dance to. Ed’s work on the night really made our party come alive and we would definitely recommend him to anyone in search of a DJ. It was just the best night ever!”

It all flowed together seamlessly.
“With the dust finally settled from our wedding day, just a quick post we wanted to share for Ed Steelefox. We were so nervous about our music plans before our wedding as we knew it was going to be so important. We wanted our wedding to be personal and meaningful for us and didn’t think we would find anyone we would feel comfortable working with. I met Ed at a local wedding fair and when he appeared excited at my mention of a ‘heavy playlist’ I was very happy. We met with Ed quite some time before our wedding day to discuss our plans for a wedding playlist that wasn’t going to be the typical music you’d hear at a wedding. It was such a pleasure to talk to him about music, he was so enthusiastic to listen to our ideas and plans and we immediately knew we were in safe hands. His varied knowledge of music and genres is fantastic! It was clear he was passionate about his work from the very start and would make every effort to make our evening perfect. We provided a list of artists and songs that we knew we wanted to be played on the night as well as passing on some thoughts around more conventional tracks. Ed worked all of this into the playlist comfortably The wedding day rolled around and the playlist Ed put together was absolutely incredible! Not only did he include all of the songs we asked for but the mix itself was fantastic, there was never a moment where nobody wasn’t on the dance floor. Which is an achievement in itself considering our genres spanned from prog rock to the heavier side of metal. It all flowed together seamlessly. Ed was so enthusiastic on stage, clearly so passionate about music and his energy definitely brought out the moves in even the biggest anti dancers. People commented they found it hard to leave the dance floor because tune after tune kept coming. We’d highly recommend Ed without hesitation if anyone was in need of a DJ, were so happy and grateful for everything he did for us on the wedding day, truly a party we’ll never forget!”

Ed played the music I love but still managed to keep everyone dancing.
“I got married yesterday and I have been eager to leave a review for DJ Ed Steelefox. I had one of the best nights dancing of my life, I loved every minute. The song selection was great, Ed read the crowd and gave them exactly the music they needed to dance the night away. Ed kindly mixed my two favourite songs at short notice and created a first dance that was both romantic and fun resulting in all the guests on the dance floor singing their hearts out. Ed is very clearly passionate about music and his enthusiasm and energy is infectious encouraging myself and the guests to dance more, the end of the night was one of my favourite parts of the day where Ed played the music I love but still managed to keep everyone dancing, Thank you Ed.”

You’d made it all so perfect.
“We just wanted to say a huge thank you again for your amazing DJing at our wedding on Saturday. We’ve loved chatting via email right from the start about our favourite music, lots of which we share with you! Anyone who says “great, I’ll bring my smoke machine” when I tell them about my love for Stevie Nicks and Kate Bush is awesome in my book! Your friendly and calm presence throughout the day, reminding guests of the timings of the day made everything run so smoothly and you always made sure that you were around in case we needed anything in such a thoughtful and unassuming way. The disco was my favourite part of our wedding and it was so lovely to see so many family and friends up and dancing the night away, especially my mum dancing until the very end- magical moments for us to treasure forever. I cried throughout our final song of the night because you’d made it all so perfect. Every single person you chatted to commented on what a lovely guy you are and how we felt like we’d known you for ages. We all agreed you’re the kind of top bloke we’d all go out for a pint with! We just need to find another excuse for a massive party so we can book you again! Please feel free to use this message as our wholehearted recommendation of you and all that you do. You’ll always have a special place in our hearts.”

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I love remembering the many, many different types of wedding I've played, from electro-swing to heavy rock and everything in between, but those I'm most proud of are those where I can feel how grateful the couple are for me incorporating their favourite music. When I hear such things as - 'We weren't sure whether to have a DJ but Ed made it better than we could have possibly imagined' or 'We wanted our wedding to be personal and meaningful for us and we immediately knew we were in safe hands.' - those are the memories that stick and make me smile.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Creative, versatile, eclectic, energising and fun.

What about your business are you most proud of?

I enjoy doing as thorough a job as I would hope for for my own wedding and it's my thoughtful, accommodating nature that I'm glad to be able to bring to this work. A large family event can sometimes be a sensitive or daunting time and, with my calm, supportive manner, I like to make everyone feel welcome and involved.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Don't underestimate just how much of the day you will spend talking to your guests so be sure to give yourself some time to catch your breath, look around at your gathering and take it all in together - you're very unlikely to ever have that same combination of friends and family celebrating in one place again, so soak it all in and store that feeling.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

I've helped couples, and their guests, stage surprise flash-mob dances, incorporate video messages from far-flung family members or celebrities and perform live music as part of their day. I especially love hearing people's speeches though and there are many moments, atmospheres and anecdotes that I will never forget.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I like to hear as much as possible about their music tastes so as to get a good, wide picture of what styles we have to play with for their day. Unlike some DJs, I don't tend to restrict the amount of requests or the length of playlists and have done several weddings in which every song has been chosen by the couple. It's then my challenge to construct a route through the evening which includes something for everyone and involves me finding the right moment for the right songs, which is exactly what I love to do. I like to do a lot of planning and preparation for the weddings I play at and my fees reflect all of the time, effort and care that I put in to each event.

What makes a romantic first dance?

When you can feel how special a moment it is for the bride and groom and when I know how important their song is to them.

What is your number one floor-filler?

An oldie, and certainly not for every gig, but for some reason I love it when Jackie Wilson's Reet Petite really hits the right spot.

Which band from the past would you most like to have been part of?

Queen were one of my first loves but, as a drummer/percussionist, a live gig by someone like Kool and the Gang or Earth, Wind and Fire must have been so much fun to be part of.

What is the soundtrack to your life?

Talk Talk's 'Spirit Of Eden' album has a very special place in my heart and is a post-event favourite of mine to relax back into real life with.
