Award Winning Wedding DJ and Entertainment
I am Tony Winyard
I have been fortunate enough to perform at over 2,500 weddings, in the UK, Europe and Asia. For couples in their twenties to some in their 70s!
I have received many awards including UK Wedding DJ of the Year and Wedding DJ of the Year for London and the South-East at the Wedding Industry Awards. I developed my MC skills through public speaking, at Toastmasters, and via stand-up and improvised comedy. That wealth of experience and training guarantees you the best possible occasion.
90% of my bookings are as both DJ & MC for the whole day.
My aim is to help create the atmosphere the couple desire and I do everything I can to bring that to life, and so an important aspect for me is meeting with each couples usually at least a couple of times before the wedding, so I get a clear idea of what mood they want to create.
For many, their primary desire is for it to be a fun day for them and their guests, but we are all different. Some couples have wanted a relaxed and informal day, others elegant, others chic…
I am extremely grateful for how many couples have chosen me to be a major component of their special day and I do not take that honour lightly.
I love to give couples and their guests a fun experience with maximum impact. By delivering impeccable customer service, I aim to give each couple peace of mind and reassurance in advance, and then to surpass every expectation on their special day.

I spent 15 years as a club DJ working at iconic venues in London, around the UK and abroad, including Holland, France, Norway, Japan, Hong Kong and Italy. I DJ’ed at luxury wedding venues including: Claridge’s, The Savoy, Grosvenor House, Emirates Stadium, Highclere Castle, and many overseas venues.
My passion for music started young. My substantial record collection has been growing since the age of nine, when I took up a paper round and spent every penny I earned on records. At age 11, I was ‘promoted’ to a milk round, so I could earn more and buy more records. As a teenager, friends started to invite me to play music for their parties – and that’s how it all began.
I have undertaken considerable training in professional speaking, improvisation and stand-up comedy, MCing and DJing, and continue to develop my knowledge and skills actively. I’ve travelled to the US to study with Mark Ferrell, Peter Merry and other top coaches in the role of being an MC.

Having provided the music at hundreds of ceremonies and witnessing countless registrars and celebrants delivering boring traditional ceremonies, I decided to offer couples a wedding that is considerably more fun.
