The Wedding Industry Awards

Welcome to this section of my website dedicated to my client feedback as part of the nations biggest wedding awards ceremony, The Wedding Industry Awards.

In the summer of 2019 I will be entering once again for my 5th year in the hope of becoming “Wedding DJ Of The Year 2020

I am happy to admit, having been called to the stage on 3 occasions I have got The Wedding Industry Awards Bug! And for good reason too.

Here’s why I love these awards and use them as my favoured way to collect genuine reviews.

Genuine reviews you can trust!

All the reviews you will see in this section were collected by The Wedding Industry Awards and presented to me at the end of the awards process. Each comment is verified as genuine by the organisers using a unique wedding date, venue, phone number, email and IP address. Comments are also reviewed by a panel of industry expert judges.

These awards are the biggest and most trusted in the UK. Its always an honour to be associated with the hundreds of super talented wedding suppliers across the country who also enter the competition.

I hope you enjoy reading how my past couples have rated Shoosh Weddings 🙂

Lauren Tribe

Dan was absolutely perfect for our wedding. Our pre-meeting was great, Dan put us at ease by listening to our requests and making good suggestions which eased our worry. He also explained that he knew the venue & would help the day run smoothly by liasing with the band throughout the day. The two sets he played were brilliant, exactly what we wanted & he was flexible when guests made requests. His advice about finishing time & the last song was spot on. We are so pleased he was a part of our day

Claire Storey

What can say about dan he was everything that I needed and much more. Experienced ,reliable ,calm and relaxed which is what you need because planning a wedding can be stressful stuff! Dan puts you at ease because he is so professional and fills you with confidence. Any problem/questions ,he is so prompt to get you an answer. On the big day he was great, the guests loved him and he in no way stole the show (which I know some Dj do) Our big day was Perfect and Dan played a big part in it!

James Ramsey

Very good dj. Very nice person. Good music and gets everybody up on the dance floor. I highly recommend Dan from Shoosh Weddings.

Natalie Campling

Dan was brilliant from start to finish! The quick response to any questions or requests we had before the big day was second to none. Dan arrived early to set up and what a professional set up it was, the minute the wedding breakfast was over the music began. It was spot on from the offset and he managed to keep every single person on the dance floor all night even though it was a scorching hot day and the room was boiling! An excellent and professional service all round from a great guy!


Dan is amazing best dj ever always gives 100% I would definitely recommend him to anyone who EVER needs a dj. He is also such a lovely man too and is very pleasent and warm towards all guests.

Mrs Boston

Excellent service and entertainment, could not ask for a more helpful DJ when booking. On the night of the wedding Dan was very pleasant, and we had non stop great comments from our guests

Kerry Ivins

Dan was truly amazing! Our wedding was a blast and at the centre of the evening Dan was driving the dance floor. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone. Amazing value, great tunes and a feel for the dance floor; we loved every minute of it! We are going to have an anniversary party at some point and Dan is the first on the list of things to secure. He is THAT good! Dan is fun, professional and so good with people. From the moment we booked him we knew we were in the right hands!

Paul Prowse

Excellent advice regarding music genres Knows what to play at the right time of the evening Fantastic timing for ramping up the music to attract our guests to dancefloor at the right time Very good on the microphone, sounds very professional while encouraging guests to dance Very intelligent deciding how to switch genre to keep the dancefloor alive. Switches between modern and older songs seamlessly A lot of guests had their song requests granted without disrupting the flow of the music

Ron Elson

Dan was incredible. Music was SUCH an important part of our day, being a young (ish) (29 yrs) couple, with a young crowd we wanted everyone up dancing ALL night. All of our guests are still talking about how amazing the music was and the venue manager said they had never seen a dance floor so busy, the young and the old were out in force! We had crowd surfing, chanting and a whole lot of fun, I could not recommend him enough.


Dan was very helpful and professional from the beginning and was very open to any ideas we had. He always replied to any questions I had promptly and made me feel at ease with the whole booking process. On the day Dan was on time and played everything I had asked for. On top of everything he is a lovely guy and made sure everyone had a wonderful time. I will be recommending him to everyone!

Emma Munden

He ticked all the boxes. He covered all types of music ranging from classics to the more modern songs that we specifically requested. Felt like he was trust worthy, fun and delivered great customer service.

Sam Freeman

From our first contact Dan showed himself to be incredibly helpful, knowledgable and friendly. He was always on hand to provide advice and talk things through. He designed a bespoke set for us and made sure the dance floor was full all night. I cannot rate Dan highly enough!

Hannah Instrell De Smett

Dan was excellent from start to finish for our wedding. He responded really quickly on the build up to the day on any requests or questions and made us feel at ease straight away that the music would be taken care of. On the actual day, the booth was set up early and the tunes were spot on and had everyone on the dance floor all night. An excellent and professional service, and would highly recommend.

Scott Williams

Dan was an amazing wedding DJ – our guests danced all night and many commented on the brilliant music choices – there was something for everyone! He interpreted our quite wide, general brief really impressively and it made our wedding reception perfect. We always wanted everyone dancing and, thanks to Dan, we achieved it!

Emma Watts

Dan was incredible. Music was SUCH an important part of our day, being a young (ish) (29 yrs) couple, with a young crowd we wanted everyone up dancing ALL night. All of our guests are still talking about how amazing the music was and the venue manager said they had never seen a dance floor so busy, the young and the old were out in force! We had crowd surfing, chanting and a whole lot of fun!

I can not recommend him enough!

Nikki Fhalora

Dan used to DJ in many pubs & clubs when I was younger & he always captured the audience & played the appropriate music to ensure a fantastic night. I also recommended Dan to my cousin a few years ago & we had a fantastic evening, I didn’t leave the dancefloor! I know that if we booked Dan for our wedding reception we would have a fantastic party & our family & friends would fill the dance floor.

Michelle Perkins

We booked Dan for our wedding as his reviews were amazing. As a couple, we both enjoy a variety of genres and Dan listened to exactly what we
wanted – from boyzone to Blink 182! Dan asked me before playing song requests to ensure I was happy and if a song was played that I didn’t like a quick nod was given and the track changed. The dance floor was always full and Dan’s use of lighting was amazing. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dan as a wedding DJ.

Charlotte London

Not only did Dan provide an exceptional service he went beyond his call of duty arriving early to give mics for the speeches when the venue failed to do so. His experience showed as he judged the style of music perfectly for our quest and kept the dance floor filled. He also knew when and when not to use the mic himself. He played all the songs we asked for and even special requests. He even checked the up lights were the right shade of pink! To top it off he’s a nice chap!

Ian Hutchinson

Amazing dj, great knowledge, super helpful and accommodating, played a massive part in what was the greatest evening of our lives! Well done! From the very first phone call all the way up until the end of the night he was nothing but brilliant! All of our guests said they had a fantastic time!

James McManus

I found Shoosh weddings incredibly professional, friendly to the point and highly affordable. I would highly recommend Shoosh weddings to anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding.

Roxanne Trainor

Dan was exceptionally professional and friendly from the moment we booked him through to post Wedding. Dan exceeded ok our expectations and I would highly recommend Dan.

Charlotte Rivett

Great DJ got everyone on their feet dancing all night Played all gteat music and the songs we asked for he had one the night great guy would highly recommend him to anyone

Victoria Hemmings

Wedding planning can be a stressful time but Dan helped ensure that entertainment was something we did not have to worry about. His professionalism, prompt responses and experienced advice were very appreciated and helped us plan the day. Dan was encouraging and supportive, able to both play all our requested songs and mix them into the night so that the floor was always packed for them. He read the crowd excellently and kept the dancing going through the whole evening. Fantastic DJ!

Robert Winter

Wow. Dan had everyone on the dancefloor constantly. Comms were superb through the whole process, polite, friendly and amazing music. Couldn’t have asked for better. And what a lovely touch to get a personal thank you the next day. I want another party just to book Dan!

Danielle Hill

Absokutely amazing. Fun, easy to talk to. Understood what we wanted. Got everyone in the party mood. Would highly reccommend. Best wedding dj that I have seen. Friends want his contact details for their weddings!

Leanne Harwood

Dan was fantastic from the moment I called to enquire about booking him for our wedding to the wedding evening itself. Kept in touch with me and was very quick at responding to my emails. We knew we were in safe hands. We like a variety of music and gave dan an idea on the sort of stuff we liked but said we were happy to leave it in his hands and he definitely delivered. People were dancing all night which is exsactly what we wanted. We were very please with Dans service.

Chantelle Wall

Dan from Shoosh weddings was marvellous – professional, friendly, and an excellent DJ! We had a creative idea for the first dance involving three songs and he helped us pull if off! He was helpful prior to the wedding while we were planning and on the day itself. Most importantly he listened to what we wanted – from the volume and lights to the songs themselves, even sourcing some hard to find favourites from around the world. We would recommend Shoosh weddings to everyone!


Dan is an outstanding DJ and I’m so pleased we found him. We knew we were in safe hands because of his excellent communication before our wedding and on the day itself when we chose to have our first dance slightly later due to the heat! He is flexible, professional, talented and above all great fun! The dance floor was busy all night despite the heat and Dan played a fantastic range of music catering for everyone and included our requests. The Great Hall looked amazing with the lighting too!

Clare Dove

DJ Dan Shoosh was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish. We had a very international mix of guests and an eclectic playlist to match which Dan sourced and delivered to perfection. He was extremely friendly & brought an incredible energy to the day. The dance off was unforgettable with everyone cutting some killer shapes while Dan’s tunes and lighting set brought the house down. He was a pivotal part of the party! Couldn’t recommend anyone more highly.

Jeniffer Tribe

Dan was an excellent DJ. So flexible and accommodating. We were so lucky to have him help to make our day so special!

Anmol Bhatt

Dan is not only a lovely guy to work with but a brilliant DJ, listens to exactly what you want & delivers – had our dancefloor busy all night! 🙂

Gemma Hodder

Can not recommend Dan enough, he was fantastic and reliable throughout the entire process. 10/10

Cally Jennings

Music was an important part to me when planning our wedding. After speaking to Dan on the phone for the first time I was convinced that he would deliver everything I wanted and needed and I booked straight away. We meet up 3 weeks before the wedding to talk about the day and after the meeting I walked away really excited! On the day the dance floor was packed all night with all our guest loving the music he really delivered a memorable evening to a fantastic wedding day.

Adam Willard

Dan was perfect from the day we booked him all the way to our wedding day. He always replied to any questions via email/phone really quickly, is so so friendly, and gave us the best wedding party we could have wished for! Everyone was on the dance floor all night! Couldn’t recommend Dan more!

Morgan Kelly

Wow. Dan had everyone on the dancefloor constantly. Comms were superb through the whole process, polite, friendly and amazing music. Couldn’t have asked for better. And what a lovely touch to get a personal thank you the next day. I want another party just to book Dan!

Emma Robson

Dan performed at our friend’s wedding and did such an amazing job we had no hesitation booking him for ours. The whole experience from start to finish was perfect, Dan is super friendly and brings loads of energy and enthusiasm to the job. He was great at chatting through the plan with us before and suggesting ideas, we were a bit vague but he managed to understand exactly what we wanted and was amazing on the night. He was exceptional in every sense and is very deserving of this award!

Adam Smith

Shoosh Weddings (Dan) was absolutely fantastic on our wedding day. We sent him pages of our favourite music in advance and he managed to include a lot of the songs on the evening, which meant so much to us. To have your favourite songs played on your big day is so special. The dance floor was never empty and he kept people dancing all night. We also had comments after the wedding by various guests, saying how good they thought the DJ was. He was also extremely professional and helpful

Kirsty Sargeant

After talking to Dan on the phone we both felt he knew what we wanted for our wedding, It felt as if he was as much a part of our day as we were.

Lesely Titterington

I can not praise Dan highly enough. He was brilliant right from the very first email when I made my enquiry, answering all my questions promptly and efficiently and even just through his emails you can tell what a nice guy he is. At the wedding reception we had a full dance floor the entire night, and it was a big dance floor! It was so obvious that Dan is brilliant at what he does, he can read a room better than any DJ I’ve ever seen and his music choices were faultless.

Hannah Horlock

So happy with Dan, he made our wedding so fun and happy – he listened to what we wanted and had everyone up on the dance floor with memories I will cherish forever

Lisa Seal

If he doesn’t win this award it’s a fix, I have been to a few weddings over the last few years and not being biased but he was far better and knew how to get people up and dancing.

Charlise Dent

I wish I could score Dan more than 10/10! From the first moment I sent him my first enquiry message until the last song was played on our wedding day he was absolutely fantastic and even after the wedding! He’s so genuine and enthusiastic. He was extremely flexible and was open to our specific playlist and gave extra recommendations. The music and lighting was perfect on the day and he had everybody up dancing and enjoying themselves. He made our evening perfect!

Lyndsey Rowe

Nothing at all was too much trouble for Dan. He knew exactly what worked and asked for our input too. He made our son included, ie telling guests first song after first dance was his choice etc. Just thinking of our evening makes me want to throw a party and ask Dan to DJ again!!

Charlotte Osbourne

We could not have wished for a better wedding DJ. I would recommend Dan to anyone.

David Stephenson

Best Wedding DJ ever! Dan was absolutely brilliant! Everyone at my wedding loved his music!

Selena Black

Dan did an amazing job at our wedding, We were dancing all night long.

Emma Hatton

We cannot fault the service offered and delivered. Dan was engaging, informative, fun, passionate about his work and made the process from initial enquiry to the wedding evening, stress-free. Dan was clearly very experienced and knew what songs would get people moving. Our dance floor was packed up until the lights went on. The evening was so much fun, we did the conga around the hotel and got on the floor for the upside song! Highly recommend Dan and strongly support his quest for best DJ.

Charlie McCraith

I would highly recommend shoosh weddings’ great communication, helped with choices and knew what worked well. My day was great and had everyone dancing and enjoying themselves. I got some great pictures.

Sarah Phillips

Dan was an absolute god send on my wedding day. I trusted him 100 he arranged my lighting (which looked stunning) as well as music choices. All I told him was the first dance song and to cater for all ages which he most certainly did. The only thing I didn’t stress about was my dj. Highlight of my night playing the first dance song as the last dance. This was such a good idea and everyone got involved perfect end to a perfect day!

Laura Somers

Dan was worth every penny and then some. As a nightclub DJ with 20 years’ experience myself I had very specific and high expectations of my wedding DJ, which Dan comfortably surpassed. On the night he played the optimum balance of underground music that I had requested (perfectly beatmatched and mixed) alongside more obvious party tunes to keep a diverse crowd entertained. The dancefloor was packed from the first tune until the obligatory “New York New York” sign off.

Matthew Brady

Helpful, enthusiastic and open to ideas and suggestions. He was up for it and wanted to make it a great night!
