‘You’ve Got the Love’
– Candi Staton
Here are some of the amazing testimonials that our couples have sent to us. It totally blows us away when a couple takes the time to write to us after their wedding.
Please also check out some the wonderful Thank You cards our couples have sent to us: http://www.deckheds.co.uk/thank-you-cards/

Wow, Kate and Karl know how to put on a party!
Being music buffs, we were looking for a DJ that could cater to our eclectic music tastes and not play the cheesy rubbish wedding stuff. We found Deckheds and their website said; ‘non-cheesy’ which was a winner. We sent an enquiry asking what they usually play and that we really didn’t want naff wedding stuff.
Planning a wedding from Australia is no easy feat, but they very quickly responded with a warm email and an offer of a Skype call to all things music. A week later we had an hour-long chat about what we were into and they seemed like old friends with very similar music taste to ourselves! After outlining what they could do and what we wanted, they sent us handy booking forms where we could list the songs and artists that we liked and wanted to play, and the all important ‘do not play’ list!
We went a bit overzealous and filled out the sheets with just about everything we liked, but Karl was not over-faced and encouraged us to send whatever we wanted so he could curate a set that was very personal to us.
On the wedding day itself, we didn’t even notice Kate and Karl set up for the evening and they got things rolling with a ‘cocktail hour’ of more mellow tunes before ramping things up!
The dance floor was full all night with many of our guests complaining that they needed to sit down or go to the bar but they didn’t want to miss the next song! There wasn’t one missed-beat, every selection was pitch perfect and kept everyone dancing. Kate and Karl read the room perfectly and knew exactly when to switch up the genre or tempo. When we finished dancing at 1am everyone just wanted them to keep playing. It was perfect.
For days after the wedding people were talking about the music and how fantastic it was, they had not been to a wedding with DJ’s as good as these guys, and we have to agree!
So thank you Karl and Kate for making our special day what it was, it wouldn’t have been the same without you and we’re gutted there’s no reason for us to Skype anymore.
We couldn’t recommend these guys enough!

To Karl and Kate…
Top of our list of thank you’s sit Deckheds – so here goes! Saturday was such a huge day for Tim and I (as is any couples wedding day), and months of time goes into the planning to make it as perfect as possible. Right from day 1 we knew music was going to play a huge part in our day, and we spent lots of time thinking about how to get our love of music across to our guests and get it just right, from music on our vintage bus, to live acoustic music in the day right through to what we hoped would be a packed dance floor…
When Deckheds were recommended (and you came highly recommended!!), it didn’t take much looking on your website before we knew you were right up our street…one Skype session later and we were absolutely sold!!
Throughout the process you guys have been super friendly, helpful, and Karl clearly has music running through his veins. Everything we wanted in a DJ was visible from the start. We loved sending our favourite tunes through to you, and had utter confidence that you knew our vibe and where we were trying to get to.
A quick set up (I didn’t even notice you guys get in there and get ready – stealth like!), and a nudge to tell us it was time for our first dance and off we went! That was literally it – I don’t think the dance floor was ever less than packed all night. We have some great photos and videos already coming through of friends and family busting some serious groves. We literally had the best night and we can’t tell you how many people have commented on how great the evening was, in particular the music.
We cant sing your praises enough. Thank you Karl and Kate for helping ensure we had the best night ever.
‘With every song I love you just that little bit more…’

Well well well, what a night we had last Saturday! I don’t think Hargate Hall as ever rocked so hard!!
A huge thank you from both us for putting a great set together. It was amazing, and one of the highlights of the whole thing for us! I hope you guys enjoyed it too!
We have had so many people pass comment on how great the music was, and I think the fact that the dance floor was pretty much full beginning to end is testament to that, as well as your mixing skills!
I don’t know if you have it, but would it be possible to get a copy of the running order of the night? I just thought it might be cool to put a playlist together at home in the order of the night, just to re-live it a little bit!
Thanks so much again mate. It was a pleasure to have you be part of the day.
Also thanks for your professionalism and guidance in the run up. It was a pleasure dealing with you. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone who ever asks us about a DJ!

What can we say, DECKHEDS were the second best choice we made for our wedding (riiiight behind choosing to get married!). From the initial chats, back & forth over the playlists to the last song played out at our reception, we absolutely cannot fault you awesome pair. From your passion for music, what you do, professionalism and everything else inbetween, we simply couldn’t have been happier with what DECKHEDS delivered! I personally loved that we were straight on the same page when it came to our playlist. Everything you suggested, and played on the night went down perfectly both with us and our guests. The floor was crammed full all night! We certainly didn’t want to stop dancing and was the exact party we had hoped for. Friends and family were coming up to us both all night singing your praises and it was definitely deserved. Thank you both, a million times over for making our night exactly what we ever hoped it would be, and more. Music is a huge part of my life, and what you played, how professionally you played it, and also both your truly awesome personalities meant we simply couldn’t have been happier. Loved every bit, thank you again Karl + Kate!
We want more excuses to book you again as soon as possible!

From the moment we booked you we knew we had made the right decision. We really can’t express how grateful we are for making our evening reception exactly what we wanted. In the run up you were great, from asking us to do the play list and the don’t play list and for yourself and Kate taking the time to meet up with us prior to the day really put us at ease that we were in for a great night.
We literally had the best night, I feel I may have slightly neglected our guests but there was no way I was leaving that dance floor (never been more grateful for a converse, I think Rob knew they would come in handy).
The flow of the music was seamless, the play list we gave you is shall we say “varied” and you pulled it off to a tee. Some of our guests are a tough crowd to please and the feedback and compliments that we have had from them about the music have been great. We have at least one very amusing video of the rugby boys dancing their socks off and that doesn’t happen often!
So now it’s all over (sad face) but we are so happy that we had your expertise, it made our night unforgettable and we can’t thank you enough for this. Without a doubt it was my favourite part of the wedding (other than actually getting married!). We just need an excuse to book you again!
I have recommended you to anyone who will listen to me.
So again, thank you so much for making our night exactly what we wanted.
