Diana was the DJ at our wedding, The Oak Tree in Lower Peover 23 November 2019. From the first time we spoke she was delightful - she worked with us for the song selections, and was more than happy to accommodate a surprise band popping up during our first dance!

We would highly recommend Diana, professional and friendly and she kept the dance floor buzzing all night, we only wish it could have gone on longer :-)

Thank you
Tracey & Andrew x

Hey you two! So kind of you to take the time to write this. You were both fabulous to work with and your guests were brilliant! Congratulations once again and a very happy new year x

From meeting Miss D to the end of our wedding night, Miss D demonstrated A1 professionalism. She met up with us and took charge of our needs with precision. We had old school trance tastes and a wide range of musical must plays for our guests and Miss D had the repertoire to cater for us. She is a very pleasant lady and a great communicator . You won’t be disappointed 👍 More...

So far so good :) the communication has been brilliant :)

6 March 2018

I can't recommend Diana highly enough, from the first interaction she was professional and knowledgable but extremely warm and friendly. She was really keen to understand what we were looking for and find out about the birthday girl so she could provide a really personal experience. It was so easy to deal with Diana and she always got straight back to me when I contacted her. She provided a perfect playlist and every guest commented on how good she was, she catered for everyone at the party (they ranged from 2years old to 76 years old) . If you are looking for a DJ who will provide great entertainment and a really personal service Diana is your lady.
Thank you so much for everything, you made the night truly memorable!

Thanks so so much Liz! You were a cracking bunch and Sophie is an exceptionally lovely girl. We really enjoyed the evening and meeting you all. xx

12 February 2018

She was professional, friendly, asked questions before the event so she understood exactly what we wanted - then delivered just that on the night. We all had an ace time dancing to her tunes - particularly the 90s where we could reminisce and pretend we were still teenagers! - she read the crowd brilliantly - will use her again, and would totally recommend! More...

Thanks Joy.... I had an absolute blast and your friends are all great value at a party!! Lovely to meet you all x

1 February 2018

Although I didn't not use miss d in the end because of a change of plans for the event, I did speak with her on a few occasions, communication was excellent she knew what I wanted and even offered to keep the date free for me. If the event plans had not changed I would have hired miss d without a second thought. More...

Hi Steve, that's really kind of you and I do hope our party stars will align somewhere else one day!! Hope your wife has a lovely birthday. D

23 January 2018

We booked Miss D for our wedding and after party. Miss D is an outstanding DJ, nothing was too much trouble to ask, she took requests on both nights . Every song we requested she had. Miss D covered every age group and made everyone happy, even the children!
Miss D's professionalism and interpersonal skills are also outstanding. We all would be more than happy to recommend Miss D for any occasion. Not only is she the Best DJ we have ever hired, she is also a lovely person who cares very much about what she does.
We have already booked her for our next party in June!

Thanks Hayley!. We loved both nights..... it takes a great family to make a great party and we can't wait for the next one!! X

29 June 2017

Diana was fantastic DJ at my birthday party. She kept in touch prior to the party and got a feel of the type of music we liked. Having a wide range of ages from 5 to 85 she ensured that there was something for everyone. Lots of comments from guests on what an amazing job you did.
The audio track was unexpected but such a nice touch.
Thank you again for making it an amazing night. Will not hesitate to use you again in the future.

Thanks SO much Tracy! We had a great evening and we enjoyed playing music for everyone from Ariana Grande to the Rolling Stones!! :-) Hope to see you again on a dance floor soon!!

25 June 2017

We needed a DJ for our wedding reception at very short notice as the one we had booked became ill.
Diana was absolutely fantastic from the moment we contacted her. She gathered our music preferences and discussed exactly what we needed for the night.
It was a great night which was enjoyed by all, which is in no small part down to the efforts of Diana and her husband Dean.
They are both super professional and have all the kit to ensure your occasion is a success.
Above all of this they were really lovely and a pleasure to meet.
We cannot recommend highly enough!
Thanks again.

Thanks SO much Claire, it was such a pleasure to meet you and your lovely family, we had fun too! Hope to see you again some time xx

Miss D was brilliant from the outset and provided me with a playlist so that I could get a feel for her range and thereafter there was great communication and the payment process was very easy.
We had a clear directive for the music and Miss D fulfilled the brief beautifully, we didn't have to send extensive tracks as she understood where we were going with it all and that was fantastic.
They arrived on time, set up and did all sound checks etc and I felt that she was professional in every aspect of her job. The sure sign of the success of any party is when everyone says that the music was incredible. We would definitely hire Miss D again and I can't recommend her enough!

7 April 2017

Miss D was the DJ for my 30th party. She made sure she knew what sort of music I liked and any must play songs and liaised with the venue to sort out setting up etc. On the night, she played an excellent mix of music, getting everyone dancing. Everyone had a great time and we had so many compliments on her DJing and the music. I would definitely recommend using her for parties and weddings. More...

4 April 2017

Excellent response time and attitude, really got to know what I was looking for, competitive pricing, energetic and enthusiastic about my wedding day!

So excited to be playing at such a lovely venue. The playlist is starting to come together nicely and it looks like the makings of an epic night. Thanks for letting me be part of your most special day.

3 April 2017

Diana was a fabulous DJ at my husband's recent 50th birthday do in Manchester. She spent time researching the genre of music we were after, as well as playing a diverse range for all attendees.

She is bubbly and friendly and really made the night personal and special. Will definitely use again.

Thank you Diana x

Thanks so much Janine! It was great fun and lovely to meet you and the family and also to be part of the big surprise!

19 January 2017

Bark was very easy to use, Diana is an affordable dj with lots of experience, can't wait for her to dj at our wedding

It's an absolute pleasure.... I'm as excited as you! (OK almost!!)

1 August 2016

So appreciative of Diana and her husband who came along to make my 21st birthday so special on Saturday. She played a great range of songs to suit all the guests personalities and the feedback after the party was great. I would definitely recommend her for other parties I may have in the future :) thanks again Diana X More...

22 July 2016

We were very pleased with Miss D at our Hospice Charity Luncheon and Fashion Show. She met the brief very accurately, was very professional but also showed warmth and empathy with our cause. She was also very sincere in her interest of the charity and we would certainly use her services again. More...

Thanks so much - it was an absolute pleasure.


1. Great communication with the party hosts before the event to get a clear picture of their musical preferences, the range of guests attending, special songs for family and friends, 10 'must-plays' etc.
2. Developing a full personalised playlist using these guidelines to ensure that everyone at the event is catered for musically.
3. Experience! knowing when and where to play the floor-fillers and being able to read the crowd.

Flexible - I offer a completely bespoke service - everyones playlist is completely different,
Knowledgeable - With a vast experience I can offer advice on all aspects of your music
Edgy and Funky & Fun - With a background in bars and clubs both here and overseas what you won't get a cheesy DJ stuck in their ways with an out of date music catalogue!

Being a part of someones special day, both before in the planning and at the event itself. Watching the reaction of the crowd as the night builds and of course, hearing the next day that you helped to make a party that will be remembered long after the last track has stopped playing. Nothing beats that!

As a club DJ back in the 90's and then travelling to work in Australia, Ibiza and Dubai I've always worked for myself.
Since returning to the UK I've specialised in bars, restaurants and private events, including parties, weddings, product launches and corporate functions.

From me they'll get a completely personalised service, ultra reliable and extremely flexible.
I'll make sure that, from the outset, they will know that the music is one of the things they don't need to worry about when planning an event.
Where it can be done - the answer will always be - Yes!
