Experienced mobile wedding DJs for hire, who will play the right music, at the right time, with or without compering.

We provide DJs for over 300 weddings a year and we work closely with a small selection of carefully vetted, reliable wedding DJs who know exactly what it takes to fill the dancefloor with all ages.

Hire a wedding DJ to play appropriate background music as your guests arrive, as well as upbeat music for post-dinner dancing. Our wedding DJs are always happy to work alongside our function bands to create a seamless night’s entertainment. They can also liaise with your party planner and venue to make everything run smoothly on the day.

We recommend making a list of around 50 songs that you’d like your wedding DJ to play, and submitting these to us in advance. You can also make as many additional requests as you like on the night. Most of our wedding DJs bring at least 6000 songs to each wedding covering everything from golden oldies to modern chart hits, with choices to suit all age ranges.

What people say Help

  • We loved the DJ at our wedding! He was a very happy and bubbly character and was punctual and responsive during the playlist setup. Guests found him very entertaining and he participated with us, putting the masks we brought around! Everyone had fun and the music selection was good, thanks to his insights and the Brazilian paraphernalia, we had consistent dance floor activity!

    Diana, Wedding, Surrey, July 2016
  • We were very satisfied our DJ arrived early, he was very polite and friendly, he took requests all played all the right songs!

    Lizzie, Wedding, London, June 2015
  • The DJ provided by Function Central was great he really got the dancing going, arranging dance off's boys vs girls!!! We loved it!!

    Victoria, Wedding, Nottingham, June 2014
  • Our DJ was brilliant. He came to introduce himself to me before he started to set up and was really lovely. He looked the part in a smart suit and played my first dance correctly. His music choice was great and got everyone up dancing which was great!!

    Sarah, Wedding, Preston, May 2013
  • The DJ was absolutely brilliant!! Would recommend him to everyone. He knew what everyone wanted and turned up on time. Thanks again!!

    Victoria, Wedding, London, May, 2013
  • The DJ section of the event was very good, my wife and I were both consulted on what type of songs we liked and the DJ ensured these tracks were played. 10 out of 10. Thank you so much!!

    Jon, 40th Birthday Party, Nottinghamshire, March 2013
  • We were exceptionally satisfied. The DJ was superb. From the moment I spoke to him about the type of music I wanted he was both receptive and personable. On the night the music he played set the right mood exactly.

    Adrian, Wedding, London, November 2012
  • We book with FC every year and our DJ's have been fantastic, they've really made our events memorable, the dance-floor was bursting!

    Amanda, Conference, Birmingham, October 2012
  • The Dj was absolutely amazing, she turned up with plenty of time, and even in the face of an issue she was calm & professional & worked around it. She looked amazing. The dance floor never went empty for a moment, everyone was kept on their feet the whole night. She was commented on constantly, and I would highly recommend her for every occasion. I'm so glad she was part my very special day. Thank you so much.

    Sarah, Wedding, Sussex, September, 2012
  • I was very satisfied with The Mod Cons and the wedding DJ you provided. The DJ was very receptive to requests and stuck to our suggested set list pretty much all the way through. We wanted an Indie Disco and we got one!

    Jamie, Wedding, Essex, May 2012
  • The DJ was perfect for the younger crowd, but he threw in good oldies that the rest of us couldn't resist! There's nothing better than dancing young and old.

    Kate, Wedding, September 2011
  • We booked the DJ to play in between the band (Dangermouse) and we are so glad that we did. It was really nice to have a different mix of music from the band and he catered for all requests. Having a DJ really helped to fill the dance-floor and he ensured that when it was full the music continued on the same vein in order to maintain the atmosphere. He also worked really well with the band and complimented them really well.

    Nadine, Wedding, April 2011
  • I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you for helping us to organise Dan and Ella, and the DJ on Saturday 5th February. It was also a nice touch for the DJ to give us a disc of our first dance music.

    Madhavan and Ruth, Wedding, Somerset, February 2011
  • We were very pleased with the DJ that was supplied to us for the evening party of our wedding. It took him no time at all to set up and everything went like clockwork. We wanted to have a specific genre of music played and also wanted to hear certain songs to be played throughout the night. The DJ suggested to send him about 10-20 songs that we would like to hear, he used our list to determine the type of songs he would play throughout the party and he certainly didn't disappoint as the dance floor was packed all night! I learned on the day there was a slight problem with power issues for the DJ setup but the he managed to remedy the problem without any fuss. Very pleased! Me and Charlotte would like to thank you all at Function Central for your help and patience during the booking. Both band and DJ really did good jobs on the day.

    Diego, Wedding, Leicestershire, October 2010
  • We were delighted with Adam. He kept an unobtrusive profile, and moderated his selections very well to the mood and response of the dancers/audience. He met our brief excellently, and used our list of music tastes to gauge what we liked and to create an inventive mix, rather than slavishly following the exact bands listed. I had been concerned that catering for our older guests would be difficult, however the sight of my father enjoying dancing to Nickleback and Kaizer Chiefs is something I'll never forget! We were especially pleased that Adam was able to work some of our specifically mentioned songs - like Lou Reed's Perfect Day - into a lovely slow finish to the evening.
    Many of our guests spontaneously commented on how much they had enjoyed the music, and some asked for details so they could contact Adam for future events. Thanks for making our perfect day "extra special"!

    Bernadette and Lou, Wedding, Bedford, May 2010
  • DJ Sammy was by far the best DJ we have ever hired or seen anywhere. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the music, and he managed to keep the kids entertained all night. The second to last song (Sandstorm, Darude) is an absolute favourite of both of ours – just a shame we had a slow dance to finish off! All we need to do now is find an excuse to book him again! Using Function Central was nice and easy and I’d recommend friends to use you.

    Patrick, Wedding, February 2010
  • The DJ was absolutely fab and was full of energy and was extremely helpful when we had a massive disaster with the hall booking. Thank you so much for making the disco a fun and energetic event.

    Frances, Wedding, London, October, 2009
  • Sammy was excellent. He played most of the songs I asked him to (the only reason he didn't play all of them was because I had given him too big a list of songs and there was not enough time to play them all!!)! And he ensured he played all the ones I said I definitely wanted playing. His equipment is all of a very high standard and the set up looked fantastic. The lighting was also excellent.
 On a personal note, Sammy is a wonderful guy with a great personality and he was very friendly to our guests. He was also great at encouraging people up on the dance floor. In addition, Sammy is very reliable and he provides a very reasonably priced service. We also booked one of his magicians via his entertainment agency and the magician was also excellent. 

All our guests loved his tricks. I really cannot recommend Sammy highly enough - he ensured we had a fantastic wedding reception.

    Sarah Sykes, Wedding, Surrey, September 2009
  • Thank you so much to Function Central for arranging DJ for our wedding. Not only did he look the part (black-tie), he did a fantastic job and went down a treat with all of our family and friends, young and old. I’ve lost track of the number of guests who have commented on what a brilliant job he did, so Thank you! Function Central were also brilliant - professional, friendly, super efficient and 100% worry-free, which was a welcome break from the rest of the wedding planning! I wouldn't hesitate in using your agency again or recommending you to anyone else. Thanks again.

    Andrea and Michael Paterson, Wedding, Essex, August 2009
  • Thank you very much, the disco was fantastic, everyone had a wonderful time, everyone also commented on how smartly dressed the DJs were! I have a few family members with wedding coming over the next few years & will be recommending you to them all! 
Thank you very much for a fantastic disco!

    Lianne & Nick, Wedding, London, July 2009
  • Hello. Yes the act was very good, they were punctual and ready well before we arrived at the venue. The DJ Sammy encouraged the children to get up and dance which they enjoyed and he played the music we specified. The act was everything we hoped and would hire again. He was really nice and contributed to making our day brilliant. Hope this helps, Sonia.

    Sonia, Wedding, Hampshire, July 2009
  • The DJ John was amazing and if he ever came up this way again I would not hesitate to go and see him. My son is getting married in 2011 and I hope he will be there I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone -he was the best. Thank you so much for a wonderful night.

    Linda, Wedding, Scotland, July 2009
  • I confirm that I did in fact email after the party to say how pleased we were. The DJ was fantastic on the night and had all the music we had requested. He was very friendly, arrived well in advance and the set was perfect for what we wanted. He made a real effort to ensure everyone had a good time and was active in encouraging people to sing. We were really pleased and would without hesitation recommend you to our friends. You will be first on our list should we ever need another DJ.

    Sharon, Wedding, London, June 2009
  • Hi Mike, firstly apologies for not writing sooner, but have been so busy this end. Neil and I wanted to say that our wedding went with a bang, Andy was sensational, our guests are still talking about him weeks after the wedding. His performance was beyond our expectations. Please say a big thank you to him from us and all of our guests; he really made our wedding reception. We would also ask you to pass on our thanks to the DJ, the kids loved him, his music choices were just right for our event. His personal contribution of glow in the dark bangles went down well, he interacted with the children beautifully and took pressure off the parents to have a bite to eat and a drink just at the right time. Again, many thanks for all your and their hard work. We would be more than happy to recommend you and the boys to potential customers.

    Tracey and Neil, Wedding, Birmingham, June 2009
  • I would like to thank you very much for arranging Julian to DJ at our wedding on the 28th June 2009. We had a great time and it went really well.

    Olly, Wedding, Bristol, June 2009
  • Jason was an exceptionally nice man who willingly played all our oldie music and requests, and was charming to all the guests - we can strongly recommend him and would use him again ourselves.

    Sabina, Wedding, Surrey, May 2009
  • Excellent DJ - judged the mood of the crowd and expertly wove the many requests with other tracks to make a great night! Great mixing, fab tune choice - thoroughly recommended!

    Liz , Wedding, Essex, April 2009
  • Hi Ali, Gopal and I would like to thank you very much for providing us with DJ Sammy and Phoenix on our wedding night they went down a storm, our guests were constantly on the dance floor strutting their stuff, everybody loved the band and they sounded fantastic. It was a shame that we were running extremely late going in to the evening reception but both the band and Sammy managed to turn the room around in record time. So could you please pass on our personal thanks to them both for us and hope we will be able to use your services again in the near future.

    Gopal and Karen, Wedding, London, April 2009
  • I would like to thank the band and DJ Brian for an absolutely fantastic night, all our guests had a brilliant night. They performed a couple of requests that were not on their list which were great. I couldn’t have wished for a better band to perform at the wedding. The DJ kept our guest entertained till the early hours, long after he should have packed up and gone. They topped off a wonderful day and I would certainly recommend them to anybody.

    Jenny, Wedding, Lancashire, March 2009
  • Jason was excellent, very friendly and kept the dance floor full all night. The music was loved by all ages and was generally fantastic.

    Mary-Jane , Wedding, Oxfordshire, February 2009
  • All paperwork/contract etc was fine. Consultation for setup was very good. Found DJ to be very friendly and helpful and had a lot of comments about the quality of the disco and lighting (even positive comments from a couple of people who don't like discos much!!). Thanks very much for helping to make our day very special.

    Jamie & Hazel, Wedding, October 2008
  • Hi Ben, we've just come back from honeymoon and wanted to drop you a line to thank you once again for the amazing job that you did at our wedding. Just about every guest commented on how good you were and what a fantastic time that they had. You really kept the party going, and when we starting planning our wedding, our number one priority was to make it a party to remember. You definitely were one of the main contributers to making our dream day come true (even the venue staff were saying that it was the best wedding that they'd ever hosted!) and you did a brilliant job of complementing the band, as well as reading what the guests wanted as the party went on (and on!) Thank you, thank you, thank you and if you ever need a future reference, please don't hesitate to use my contact details. All the best for the future and I'll be in contact for any future parties that we may hold!

    Claudia and David, Wedding, Rutland, September 2008
  • I would just like to thank you for supplying the entertainment for our wedding. Both Alice and Ben were prompt, immaculately presented and top quality! In particular, please pass on my thanks to Ben. I am not a huge fan of DJs, but he was superb - he played an excellent set and kept the dance floor full all night. I even cheered when he played I am the one and only - clearly I was drunk by then!

    Scott, Wedding, Cambridgeshire, August 2008
  • The band were fantastic. They really did make the night special for us. All our guests commented and everyone was dancing.

    Victoria, Wedding, Buckinghamshire, November 2008
  • Jason was fantastic and really well presented. He gave a very professional service and kept our guests dancing till 4am! We would highly recommend him and send him lots of thanks for making our wedding a night to remember forever.

    Michelle, Wedding, Somerset, July 2008
  • Please could you pass on our thanks to Nick - he did a brilliant job and kept everyone on the dancefloor all night. If it weren't for the police turning up at 1am and asking us to turn the music off I suspect we would have gone on for another few hours!!!!

    Sarah , Wedding, Kent, July 2008
  • Hi Ben, just wanted to say how great the wedding went and how fantastic all the music was. Thanks for the choice of music and even when some guests got rowdy with alcohol etc, it all went really smooth. The feedback from guests has been great. Thanks again,

    Paul and Kersti , Wedding, Nottinghamshire, July 2008
  • We were looking for a DJ for our wedding and found DJ Sammy on the internet. After receiving a glowing phone recommendation we booked and were not disappointed! DJ Sammy really helped make our wedding a special and memorable one. Everyone had a great time from playing a huge range of songs to mixing it up with some fun karaoke and limbo dancing. Book DJ Sammy for your wedding and you will have an incredible and fun disco time! Also, if anyone wants a phone recommendation then we are happy for you to use us. 

Many thanks again!

    Laura & Alistair, Wedding & karaoke, Essex, June 2008
  • Hi Ben, just wanted to say a huge thank you for Sunday. Everyone had a great time - especially mum and dad. I turn thirty next August so I shall be back in touch with you to DJ my party. It was lovely to see you again.

    Kate, Wedding, Essex, May 2008
  • Dear Mike, Many, many thanks for a wonderful wedding party - it was all down to your funky tunes! We had 'the time of our lives'. Lovely to meet you again...

    Nicky & Matt, Wedding, Bristol, April 2008
  • We just wanted to thank you for the amazing disco you provided us with on our special day. You did an excellent job all night long. So many people have said how much they enjoyed the dancing in the evening. Andy and I are so grateful. We had the most amazing day - and the dancing in the evening was one of the best bits! Thank you so much.

    Emma & Andy, Wedding, Somerset, February 2008
  • Dear Mike, We just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for such a fantastic disco at our wedding on Saturday 14th October at the Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel. It was without doubt the best disco I have seen at any wedding! The music was exactly the right volume (proved by the fact that our grandparents stayed in the room for the whole evening!), and you played all of the songs that ourselves and our guests requested. I don't think there was a single time the dance floor was empty the whole night! If you are ever in need of references, please do not hesitate to contact us at the above address. Our wedding day was perfect from start to finish - thank you for helping to make it so special. With best wishes

    Jenny & Owain, Wedding, Reading, February 2008
  • Just a card to say thanks for a great disco at our wedding. You were very helpful and understanding from the word go and it was very much appreciated by us both. Plus the music was fab! Thanks again.

    Rachel & Rob , Wedding, Gloucestershire, January 2008
  • Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic disco for our wedding. Everyone had a great evening and most people were up dancing for the night. Thank you very much.

    Donna & Steve, Wedding, Hampshire, July 2007
  • I can't say strongly enough how Jason added to a perfect day. He set up quietly and with no fuss - he played all our selection songs. He judged the mood of the evening perfectly. He dealt brilliantly with the children and was very polite and engaging with all our guests. Later on he played some great dance music, which was perfectly judged and topped off a great evening. Jason is a charming fellow and a professional at his job and I shall be recommending him to anybody looking for music at any type of event they are holding.

    Andrew, Wedding, Hampshire, July 2007
  • This is a rather belated letter to thank you sincerely for providing such brilliant entertainment for our wedding reception on 17th June. We really appreciated you setting up so quickly and for playing the songs we had requested. You did a fantastic job - particularly as the dance floor was never empty! I was very impressed as you played Prince when we left at 11pm. Very good timing! Thank you again for all you did. I will recommend you to anyone who needs a DJ. With best wishes.

    Rebecca & James , Wedding, Oxfordshire, June 2007
  • Haydn and I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work the evening of our wedding - 21st May. You were everything we had hoped for, there was a perfect selection of music - something for everyone and the volume and quality was spot on. We will certainly not hesitate to book you again, and will be passing your details on to anyone looking for a DJ. Thank you once again. Yours sincerely.

    Mr & Mrs Wright, Wedding, Devon, May 2007
  • Hi Ben, just a quick note before we head off on honeymoon to thank you for such a great service at our wedding on Saturday. We had a great time and we would recommend you to anyone. All the best.

    Vickie and Nick , Wedding, Norfolk, May 2007
  • Dear Mike, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you for doing such a great job at our wedding! Not only did we and our guests love the music which you brought, but I personally really appreciated your flexibility and responsiveness to the changing (delayed!) timetable! It was a huge relief to know that we were in your more than capable hands and to be able to relax and enjoy our evening! Best Wishes.
