DJ EDINBURGH - TESTIMONIALS
...I hope that you use this testimonial for your marketing and that it help you get more business, you deserve it!...I can't recommend James enough for everything he did to make our wedding day memorable and special. He took the time to meet with us beforehand to go over everything, really listened to all of our requests, and made great suggestions for how to make it even better. The day of, he did an amazing job of feeling out the crowd and always managed to know what to play next. Many of my friends and family said it was the best wedding they've ever been to, and mostly because everyone was dancing and having fun for the entire night! James also did a great job as an emcee, he paid attention and always made sure to make announcements so that everyone was in the right place at the right time. During our pre-wedding meeting, he took note of funny stories to integrate for each speech introduction, giving everything a personal touch. He kept up his energy all night, even though it was a very long party! I hope that you pick him so that he can make your day as special as he made ours! Thank you again for everything, I mean every word - it was amazing! I hope to keep in touch. Best Wishes.
Bailey & Tom Clougherty - The Caves, Edinburgh - 2nd October 2016.
Hi James, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for sat night. You were fab and everyone thought so. Thanks so much for involving the kids too. It was probably one of your smaller gigs but I really appreciated it. I will pass your details on to everyone - lots of 40th parties coming up!
Kirsty Bathgate. Newington, Edinburgh. 24th September 2016.
Hi James. Thanks again for Dj'ing last night at our staff party. We all had a great night and you were brilliant. Looking to get something sorted for January time so will be in touch. Thanks again.
Jamie Fairbairn. Straiton Retail Park, Edinurgh. 14th September, 2016
Hello James. A massive thank you from Chris and I! We had a great day and everyone commented on how brilliant you were both as MC and DJ. My work crew are still talking about it (the group with the guy with the beard)!! A magnificent effort, truly professional.
Susan & Chris Macintee. Macdonald Marine Hotel. 27th August 2016.
I cannot speak too highly of the service offered by James Henderson (DJ Edinburgh) at my daughters wedding, held at the Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens on the 9th of July 2016. James met up with the family prior to the wedding date and went over all aspects of the day. He made sure we all knew what would happen on the day and how he works with other service providers.
On the day itself, James kept us all fully informed as to what was happening, where people were to go and he supported the photographer and the venue staff throughout the day and into the evening. James was ‘scampering’ about the place, liaising with everyone.
James was an excellent MC too, announcements were very good and delivered in a personal and funny way. - James even remembered to support and encourage those making speeches to bring a drink up to his lectern with them and held onto their drinks until the toasts were made.
The music was excellent and a perfect mix, including the calling of Scottish country dancing, and he kept the floor busy all night! All in all, FAR more than I would have expected. A first rate professional job, and I would have no hesitation in recommending James in future. Thanks for an excellent Job James.
Chris Kowalski. Father of the Bride. Rachael and Robbie's wedding - 9th July 2016 - Edinburgh Royal Botanic Gardens

I am just sending a quick email to thank you for doing the disco at our wedding (4/6/16 at Melville Castle) as I didn't really get a chance on the night. We had an amazing night and we loved the music as did all our guests. You made us all feel relaxed and got everyone up dancing. I can not thank you enough and I will definitely be recommending you as a DJ.
Kimberley and Craig Ferguson - 4th June 2016 - Melville Castle
Hi James, We would just like to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Everyone has been saying amazing things about the master of ceremonies duties you did and the fun of the ceilidh's. Also for making the day go by smoothly and making it less stressful for me and Chris. So again thank you for helping to make our day more special.
Lisa and Chris - 15th April 2016 - The Edinburgh Caves
AC/DJ James was one of the highlights of our wonderful wedding at Dalhousie Castle. Preparation for the event was professional, friendly and smooth. The way he actively got the international audience on the dance floor with Scottish folk music pieces and then switched to funky beats was quite amazing. We loved the music selection for all the ages. Thanks James for an outstanding performance!
Juerg and Alexa - 15th April 2016 - Dalhousie Castle
Evening James. We haven't had chance to get in touch yet but I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say how lucky we are to have had you DJ our wedding. You were absolutely amazing and all our guests keep complimenting our choice! Thanks you so much!! Let me know how I can provide a full review for your new site. All the best for 2016!!

Grant Mckenzie, Regional Managing Director, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts - December 2015 - Macdonald Marine Hotel & Spa, North Berwick.
Hello and thank you so much for a great party night at the Marine Hotel on Saturday night. Was a fabulous night with great music and an excellent DJ. Catered for everyone's music requests. I only wish we had found you for our wedding earlier this year. Will certainly keep you in mind for future party events and will recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you and Merry Xmas and a Happy 2017.
Corrina Musgrave. Christmas Party night participant. - December 2016 - Macdonald Marine Hotel.
We held a Scottish Burns themed event on 27/01/17 for 100 of our top clients and we really couldn’t have done it without James. He was the glue that held the night together and kept everything on schedule. We had quite a few important messages to get across but James executed it perfectly in a light and humorous way - he spoke so confidently our guests assumed he worked for Macdonald Hotels! James is a true professional and very easy to work with. He is already a favourite host and DJ for weddings at our hotels and I wouldn’t hesitate to book him again for any future corporate events.
Lindsay Crozier, Corporate Marketing Manager, Macdonald Hotels & Resorts
I cannot thank you enough for an absolutely amazing wedding day! We had so many guests tell us how great you were, and we just loved how smoothly the day ran with you there. We especially loved that the dance floor was occupied from start to finish! The dance in this video was a brilliant start to the evening and we just loved the uptown funk one too. Absolutely brilliant, we want to do it all again!!!♥
Nikki & Ben Huggins, Vanachar Lochside - 1st July 2017
I am so glad we picked James to DJ at my daughter's wedding. Right from the start he engaged with all the guests and created such an amazing atmosphere all throughout the day. He is a true professional who knows his stuff and Go the extra mile to make sure everything runs smoothly and then he knows how to get the party started.
Julie Masterton (Mother of the Bride), Lisa & Marc, Double Tree by Hilton, Sky Bar (Edinburgh) - 21st July 2017
James, just a quick note from Gill and I to thank you very much for Saturday night - you helped ensure the night ran smoothly and everyone had great fun. The dance off was brilliant…..although I’m sure a few of them were a bit sore on Sunday morning, especially the boys (they still think they are 21!). Thanks again!
Mr & Mrs Markey, 28 October 2017 - Doubletree by Hilton, Edinburgh
Hey James! A massive thanks to you from myself and David for Saturday.
You done a spectacular job during the day and everyone had a blast thanks to your efforts. The evening was amazing to and we honestly cannot thank you enough. We know you got a booking on the night and we will definitely be recommending you in future! Many thanks again!
Emma & David Deboys, 11 November 2017 - Norton House Hotel, Edinburgh
Hi James, Just a quick email to say thank you so much for sending Paddy our way for Friday night for my 21st at Marlin’s Wynd. He was an absolutely incredibly DJ, completely nailed the vibe of the room and created a fantastic atmosphere! I cannot thank him enough. All of the guests have been raving about the fantastic music at the party, and he played a huge role in making the night as special as it was. The party went very smoothly thanks to his great work and I will definitely recommend both of you in the future. If you could pass this email on to him I would be very grateful. Thank you so much again.
Kirsten Millar, 10/11/17

Nathalie and Adam Xx, 10/03/18 - Royal College of Physicians. Edinburgh.
Hi James, Just a wee message to say thank you so much for being so great at our wedding. You helped the day run smooth and certainly made Bradley feel very comfortable before his speech. It was good to see the dance floor full all night. Rave hour was definitely a hit. So many people have asked your name and where we found you. Also passed comment on how you got the crowd going. We had an amazing day & night. Thank you again.
Ruth & Andy x, 02/06/18.
Hi James. Thanks you so much for everything you did for us, the whole day was amazing from start to finish. Everyone kept coming up to us on the day/night and even after the wedding saying how amazing you were and Max absolutely loved getting asked to floss in front of everyone, topped off by having Busted played (he picked that song and was told by my mum he couldn't have it, so he was delighted when you said you had it)
Mel & Richard, Coulston House, 23/06/2018
We would just like to thank James on behalf of myself and my husband Stefano on how brilliant you were on our wedding day. You were our MC and DJ for the day and everyone loved you - allowing them to ask for songs to be played and being a genuinely lovely guy. You made it very personal for us and we hope you enjoyed being a part of our special day also. Thank you so much x
Francesca Cocchia, 16th June 2018, Colstoun House, Haddington

You played everything we wanted - Indian and Scottish - and all our guests have been raving about you! we are so thankful really from the bottom of our hearts!
Jess and Ian Carr. Dunkeld House Hotel - 27/10/18
Dear James, I don't think I'll quite be able to sum up in this email just how amazing you made our day on Saturday but I'll give it my best shot! The amount of people that were at the wedding that have spoke to us and specifically mentioned how great you were says it all really. The whole day and night went absolutely perfectly and you were a massive part of that, making sure we had the best day possible, and we definitely did, along with everyone else there! Honestly cannot thank you enough James, it was the best day of our lives. I'll definitely be recommending you for every wedding I know of in the future and I'm pretty sure our families will be too. Thanks again for the best day! All the best!
Jamie and Jill - Macdonald Marine Hotel & SPA, 3/11/18

Archerfield House, Saturday 22nd of October 2016.
What a brilliant wedding we had on Saturday. Thank you so much for holding it all together as MC and DJ. I'm sorry we kept you to the very end, but if you will play such great music! We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day. We have had wonderful feedback about the wedding from our friends and family and many have said that it was the best wedding they've ever been to! Many thanks again and we'll definitely recommend you to our Scottish friends
Clare & James Sutherland. The George Hotel 15th October 2016.
We would highly recommend DJ Edinburgh (James Henderson) to anyone looking for a DJ for their event. We used James for our wedding and were not disappointed in any way with his service. We were worried when searching for a DJ as we are a gay couple, booking from overseas and didn’t have much to go on to make our decision, apart from online reviews and one telephone conversation. We had no real way of knowing how good (or bad) our DJ was going to be. However, James is a consummate professional, so we need not have worried.
James provided the music and sound for our whole wedding day from guest arrival, to ceremony, dinner and speeches and finally, evening disco. We were nervous because we had no chance to rehearse with James prior to the wedding starting, e.g. to make sure the entrance music was correct or started at the right time etc. Despite this, it went perfectly and James didn’t miss a single cue. Many of our guests commented on how professional he was.
During the evening disco, James did a great job in playing the songs we had asked for, as well as fulfilling requests from the guests. We had friends and family attending from 18 different countries and James made sure there was something played for everyone - even some Bhangra music! He made sure the dance floor was full from start to finish and even gave our guests some lessons in ceilidh dancing!
All in all, we would not hesitate to recommend James to anyone looking for a top quality DJ for their event.
Andrew and Sean - Balmoral Hotel 16th July 2016.
I just wanted to email you to thank you James for being our DJ on Friday night!
The dancefloor was packed the entire night and lots of people have commented today at work just how amazing a job the DJ did! You played a great mix of tracks and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their night :o). All 450 of us.
We spoke to you briefly at the start of the night, your such a nice guy and very professional.
If you would not mind accepting our thanks James, much appreciated.
We will be booking our office Christmas party for 2016 at the beginning of next year, so I will be in touch again in the not too distant future.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year.
Michelle Thomson, BLACKROCK - 11th December 2015 - Christmas Party Night EICC
I just wanted to send a quick e-mail to say thanks James. You were absolutely FANTASTIC, such a gentleman and you did everything perfectly! We are so happy we had you there doing a wonderful job!
Bella & Richard Black - 24th October 2015 - Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh.
James thank you so very much for being our DJ last Monday for Giuseppe & Izzie it was such a great day for all of us and I loved how you introduced the boys for the speeches fabulous can't thank you enough.
Maria Ventre - 20th July 2015
We met James at a wedding fayre and was impressed by his know how and knowledge. Our wedding package included a DJ/ Master of ceremonies however we were so impressed with James we were happy to pay more as we knew he would make a huge difference to our big day.
We met James before hand and had an in-depth meeting regarding what we wanted on the day and he also gave us some great ideas we had never thought of.
On the day James really brought everything together from ceremony music, master of ceremonies and getting everyone involved in the evening reception. All of our guests were really impressed and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending James to others. Thanks again James!
Dan and Sarah - 24th May 2015 - MacDonald Marine Hotel, North Berwick

Niall & Elaine Anderson - 15th May 2015 - Houstoun house
Hi James, We would just like to thank you for the amazing job you did at our wedding. Everyone has been saying amazing things about the master of ceremonies duties you did and the fun of the ceilidh. Also for making the evening go by smoothly and making it less stressful for me and Alex. So again thank you for helping to make our day more special. Very kind regards.

Brilliant Job James Henderson, fast becoming the BEST MC in Scottish Boxing.
Bradley Welsh, Holyrood Boxing Gymnasium & Amateur Boxing Association Scotland
Hi James, well, what a night we had! We’d like to say a huge thank you to you for putting on such a brilliant show at our wedding reception. We had a room full of beaming guests and everyone had loads of fun. The rave went down so well and we loved the dance off at the end! We hope you had a great night too and if ever we’re asked for a recommendation, we’ll put you in touch! Thanks again
Lisa and Stevan - Signet Library 18th Feb 2017
Good afternoon James, It's been 4 weeks since we got married at The Bonham Hotel and we wanted to say thank you for contributing to our wedding and making our big day truly memorable! We enjoyed planning the day with you and it was exactly what we had hoped for! We enjoyed every second of it! Thanks a lot.
Adil & Frauke - 3rd March 2017
James was an amazing Master of Ceremonies and DJ for our wedding. Planning a Scottish wedding from the USA is really difficult. You have to trust reviews and other testimonials and try to communicate everything you want and don\'t want via email. Let me tell you, James was the best! He was not only professional and communicative, but he really helped us with Scottish traditions and the layout of the castle. He met with us when we got to Edinburgh to make sure that he knew what we wanted. On the day of the wedding, he did an amazing job! He got everybody on their feet through his Celidh dancing calls, and people are still talking about it a month later! Thank you, James for making our wedding so special. We really appreciate you!
Ellen & Ryan Leventhal Adams, Dalhousie Castle - 22nd June 2017
Sarah and I would just like to say a massive thank you for the amazing job you did performing at our wedding at Houstoun House back in March. We were absolutely delighted with the job you did as Master of Ceremonies/DJ and many of our guests have commented just how impressed they were by you. We loved the fact that you took time to meet us beforehand and find out a bit about us as a couple. This allowed you to add some personal touches throughout the day – including your introductions to the speeches which, judging by the reaction you got, everyone loved! You really were a pleasure to work with and it was massively appreciated by us that you helped the day run so smoothly. We would be delighted to recommend you to anyone else looking for entertainment at their own wedding. Thanks again for everything.
Iain and Sarah Linklater, Houston House Hotel - 26th March 2017
Hi James. On behalf of Ian and myself we would like to send our heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the fantastic all day service you provided for our wedding at The Rowantree on Wednesday. Everyone had a great time and it really was the perfect day. Much love.
Charmaine & Ian, 25/10/17
Dear James, Thank you for all your help and hard work on our special day. Your help and music made a special day even more incredible and much more enjoyable! You’ve been a star!
Adriana & Su Ying, 10/11/17 - Cringlethie House Hotel
To James. Thank you again for such an amazing wedding day and evening. We had so much fun and our guests raved about how great our DJ was! We wish we could do it all again.
Ben & Nikki Huggins, 1/7/17 - Venachar Lochside
Thank you! From the moment we saw your advertisement online (from home in Ireland) we both knew you would be perfect for our wedding at Edinburgh Castle. We appreciated all your help and advice in the planning for our special day. You became more than our wedding MC & DJ, you became our friend. We felt really comfortable on that day knowing that you would oversee any issues that may have came up. You were a superb host and a magical DJ. Thank you so Much James.
James and Claire, 9th December 2017.
I just wanted to say thank you so much to you for organising and to Paddy for DJing on Saturday night at our Wedding reception. You were just brilliant and your light show and sound was amazing, Paddy you got everyone up dancing all night and played all our favourites from our first dance to our last ones the hall was jumping lol x. I totally loved the spotlight on us on our first dance x. I’m so glad I booked DJ Edinburgh to do our reception, you made it perfect. Definitely recommend you guys to my friends and family. Thanks again
Lynne & Stan xx , 10/02/18
James completely and utterly made our day, he took all the hassle out of the organising and had everything timed perfectly. We asked James to be our MC for the day and DJ for the evening. He totally nailed every part of it. He really knows what works best, I always think a wedding is really formal and everyone is always a little scared to let loose, we certainly didn't want that on our day and James helped create a really relaxed atmosphere and warmed our guests up and got them really involved (something I wasn't sure would go down well but he got it spot on) he even involved my little brother, 12 who insisted weddings were sooooo boring and James went out of his way to make Max feel like part of the day and absolutely loved it.
All the way through the day people were coming up to me saying how great James is. We asked for some ceilidh dancing at our wedding (just a few dances to get guest up on their feet) before our wedding my friend had said how much she hated ceilidh dancing at weddings, she thought it was really dull - the ceilidh we did with James was brilliant and 'said friend was never off the dancefloor, she actually said it was AMAZING! James totally made what could have been a really run of the mill traditional ceilidh into something extra special and loved by all (even my photographer said it was a great photo opportunity).
Do not hesitate to book James he will make your day run like clockwork and knowing its in his hands lets you enjoy you big day. Thanks again James.
