Hello and welcome to the world where weddings get a much-needed jolt of fun – courtesy of yours truly, Tony Winyard. I’m not your run-of-the-mill wedding DJ. No, sir. I'm the guy who turns up the volume on your big day, spinning not just tunes, but an entire experience.
A DJ With a Twist:
With over 25 years in the game and more weddings under my belt than I’ve had hot dinners, I’ve mastered the art of crafting celebrations that are as unique as your love story. Think of me as the ringmaster of your wedding circus, minus the scary clowns. From the euphoric highs of indie anthems to the soul-touching depths of classic tunes, and the electric buzz of dance tracks, I’m here to keep your feet and hearts moving.
More Than Just Music: But hey, it’s not all about the beats. As your Master of Ceremonies, I bring a blend of humour, timing, and a touch of the unexpected to keep your guests entertained and your day flowing as smoothly as a fine whiskey.
Why me, you might ask? Well, if you’re looking for a wedding that’s as memorable as that holiday you still talk about, you’re in the right place. I bring a sprinkle of creativity, a dash of experience, and a whole lot of passion to make sure your wedding day is talked about for years to come – for all the right reasons.
So, if you’re in the Cotswolds and want a wedding that’s less about following the script and more about writing your own, let’s chat. I’m more than just a DJ; I’m your partner in making your wedding day as epic as your love story.
Welcome to Tony Winyard Entertainment – where your wedding becomes the stuff of legends. 🌟🎶💍

Before I became the go-to guy for weddings that are more party than procession, I was spinning tracks in some of the hippest clubs you’ve probably heard of – and some you haven’t. From the pulsing heart of London to the vibrant streets of Holland, Indonesia, Switzerland, South Korea, France, Norway, Japan, Spain, Hong Kong, and Italy, my DJ decks have seen more countries than a seasoned diplomat. And let’s talk about fancy weddings – I’ve mixed beats in places like Claridge’s, The Savoy, and even Highclere Castle (you know, where they filmed that show with the lords and ladies).
My love affair with music? Oh, it started way back when I was just a kid hustling on a paper round. Every penny I earned, I poured into records. By eleven, I upgraded to a milk round – better pay, better records. Teenage years rolled in, and so did the gigs at friends’ parties. That’s where the magic began, and the rest, as they say, is history written in vinyl and vibrant beats.
Don’t think for a second that this DJing and MCing gig is all about just showing up and hitting ‘play’. Nope, it’s a craft, an art form – and I’ve been honing it with the dedication of a ninja. I’ve dived deep into the world of professional speaking, improvisation, and even stand-up comedy. That’s right, I can crack a joke as well as I can spin a record.
But why stop there? I jetted off to the US to learn from the Jedi masters of the MC world – Mark Ferrell, Randy Bartlett, Peter Merry, and a host of other top guns. It’s not just about learning the ropes; it’s about swinging from them, doing flips and landing it every time. This continuous quest for knowledge isn’t just a hobby; it’s my commitment to making sure your wedding isn’t just another date on the calendar but the bash of the year.
So, you want credentials? How’s this for starters: I’ve snagged the title of UK Wedding DJ of the Year and London & Southeast DJ of the Year at the Wedding Industry Awards. But wait, there’s more, also awards from Guides for Brides, Confetti and others.. When the top DJs in the biz are tying the knot, guess who they call to get their parties started? That’s right, yours truly.
And let’s not forget the corporate bigwigs and celebrities – from the stars of EastEnders to royalty like the Sultan of Brunei, they’ve all had a taste of my turntable magic. I’m not just about weddings; I’m a maestro of the mixer for any crowd that knows good music.
But hey, I’m not just behind the decks. I’m out there sharing the gospel of great DJing, speaking at major DJ shows across the UK, including the world’s biggest – BPM Pro and the Pro Mobile Conference. And for those who like a good read, you might catch my insights in Pro Mobile, the go-to mag for mobile DJs.
And in case you’re wondering about my globetrotting credentials – I’ve spun tracks in clubs across 12 countries and visited 80 more. My passport’s got more stamps than a post office. In the world of DJs, I’ve been there, done that, and got the T-shirt.
After spinning tracks at countless weddings and sitting through one too many snooze-fest ceremonies (no offense to the traditionalists), I had a lightbulb moment. Why not offer something that shakes up the ‘I do’s a bit? So, I decided to step up and give couples a ceremony that’s more about fun and less about yawning.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not out there with a neon sign saying ‘Celebrant for Hire.’ But once or twice a year, when the stars align, I’ll take on the role and add a dash of pizzazz to a wedding ceremony. Think of it as my way of keeping things fresh – a sprinkle of Tony Winyard magic where it’s least expected.
