Really glad my wife and I booked Ian for our wedding. He really takes care of you and works on the details to help the night run smoothly. We gave him a short list of musts and must not but the rest of the night he just kept the dance floor moving. His mixing is on point, provides great lighting and even works a camera between tracks. Couldn't have asked for more! Thrilled mate. Thanks Ian from both of us! More...

Ian was absolutely fab the whole night! Arrived before we even got there and was already set up and ready to go! I was convinced he had been on my Spotify as every single song was something that I listen to and he knew exactly how to get everybody up off their seats and start dancing. I wasn’t even aware that he had also been taking photos the whole night which really made it even more special as I now have so many wonderful photos to remember my 21st birthday with. More...

Don’t look anywhere else for a DJ! Ian was our wedding DJ last week and our family and friends commented that it was the best night they had in years! Ian got the perfect balance of songs and had the dance floor full all evening. He even put together a mash up for our first dance His professional friendly approach was so greatly appreciated and the extra value he provided to us with an album full of photos and videos was an unexpected delight. Ian- you are an absolutely top bloke, a cracking DJ and we are so grateful for the role you played in our special day More...

Just wanted to say a massive thank you to Ian for organising the music for the whole day for my daughter and son-in-laws wedding. Nothing was too much trouble. His communication leading up to the big day was outstanding and the music he suggested for the entrance to the wedding breakfast was a huge success! He happily edited music to ensure everything went smoothly and we literally didn’t have to worry or stress about the music at all. I would definitely recommend anyone who is planning their big day to give Ian a shout!! More...

We just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Ian, we can’t recommend him enough, everyone we spoke to said how great he was and that he played the right songs at the right time and made all the families unite and get up and dance, he really brought the full night together, and went the extra mile to make sure not only me and Dan had a great night that all of our guests did too, not to mention the amazing photos that he managed to captured ( there’s 100s! ) THANK YOU so much for truly making it a night we will never forget, can’t wait to have you at the next family events!

Ian is an absolutely amazing DJ we couldn't reccomend him enough to anyone. He brought a family together and got people dancing who would never usually do so. He didnt just play a list of songs that were pre selected, he chose each song to suit the people on the dancefloor at that moment. We couldn't be happier with the night and were devastated when the night was over, and an added bonus he takes great photos too! all the best from Mr & Mrs Taylor x More...

We booked Ian with the hope of having some good music for the evening element of our wedding reception. What we got what was so much more! Firstly Ian is one of the loveliest people you could ever wish to meet, a real top top guy. Not only did he do a fantastic job of getting everyone dancing on the night time, he helped us with every element of our music throughout the day. Making great suggestions, pulling together playlists, even editing songs to make the timings fit. He was unbelievable - he even let us use his iPad to play the music through the day even without him there! The amount of time and effort Ian put into making sure our day was perfect was just amazing and we cannot recommend him enough. Ian we can’t thank you enough for everything you did for us we were absolutely blown away, and we’ll definitely be using you again. Love Anth and Holly x More...

If you’re looking for a professional, energetic, fun and passionate DJ look no further than Ian! We booked Ian to DJ at our wedding at the start of May. From the very first meeting with Ian we had every confidence that he was the man for the job. He quickly got a grip of what we were trying to achieve and also provided significant guidance in terms of the planning the day itself. Ian kindly offered to provide the music for the daytime ahead of him arriving in the evening and made some cracking recommendations! As soon as Ian arrived in the evening you could feel the energy and sense his passion for the job. He quickly got everyone on their feet and managed to keep the dance floor full ALL NIGHT! It’s no surprise that I’ve been inundated with comments from guests on how brill Ian was. We are so happy that we put our faith in Ian as the music can easily make or break a wedding. I would recommend Ian to anyone! Mr and Mrs Homan xxx More...

Ian played at our evening reception of the wedding a week ago at Kirkley Hall. Ian was brilliant from start to finish and also helping us out together a playlist for the evening too having had a mixture of Scots and English.

I thoroughly recommend Ian for children's parties, having him DJ at our residents parties for a good few years, I would want no one else! The kids love him and he is so entertaining. When we wanted a DJ for my sister in law to be's hen weekend I immediately asked Ian to see if he was available. I was curious to see how he managed entertaining adults as so used to seeing him with the kids! Ian did not disappoint! His approach is perfect and I knew I could trust him to come and do his thing! So out in the middle of nowhere to an old county house with 17 hens and a bride to be Ian rocked up early to check the place out and set up. He brought all his kit along with Kareoke, hilarious games and the best play list EVER! We were dancing all night long! What I love about Ian is he is so approachable so everyone feels comfortable putting in their requests. We knew Ian had his camera and just thought he was taking a few shots. Alongside keeping us entertained he has snapped and taken some videos of us all together having the best time. Captured some memories we can keep forever, some natural snaps/vids of our beautiful voices and amazing dance moves (haha). Anyway I could go on and on. I am super impressed as always. Ian is a lovely bloke who can just 'do his thing' entertain any audiance and so adaptable. He is reliable and consciousness and is passionate about making the very most of the event to create the best time for those present. From 18 slightly intoxicated hens - at the end of the night - you were brave haha and made our night. The feedback from everyone has been so positive! Super impressed. Big thank you! More...

Ian was our Wedding DJ and was amazing from even before we booked him. We can't recommend him enough!His professionalism in his approach to providing a personalised quote really meant he stood out from the rest. The quote itself was also very reasonable. He was very responsive when we had anything to query in the run-up and we met about a month beforehand where he put our minds at ease knowing the music was in safe hands! At this point we went through what music we wanted at each stage of the day and he demonstrated his knowledge with his very good suggestions and opinions. Ian not only DJ'd the night but he provided all the music for the rest of the day on an iPad for the venue to just press play!In terms of the night, he kept the dancefloor busy by judging people's reactions to different song types. He did a tremendous job of keeping the evening flowing and everyone commented on what a great night it was!Thank you so much! More...

We can’t thank Ian enough for the amazing service he provided for our wedding day on the 16th August 2018 at Newton Hall. Planning a wedding can be a stressful time and picking a DJ who is going to match our tastes was very important to us. Before the wedding, Ian very kindly invited us to his home - where we discussed our ideas and collaborated with him to get the best out of our day. He recommended so many things we didn’t consider ourselves, and these finer details really made the occasion that extra special. With his fantastic suggestions - we decided to have him there the whole day, covering the ceremony, wedding breakfast & evening reception. We are extremely pleased that we made this decision. Our ceremony was outdoors, which meant that Ian had to move locations around the venue at certain times throughout the day, we weren’t expecting this, but Ian fitted this into his service with no hesitation and no disruption. On the night time Ian entertained our guests with a broad range of songs that kept the party going well into the night. On top of the service he provided on the day he also took photographs of our guests and recorded our speeches. If you are thinking about booking Ian and Icon Entertainment, do not hesitate he goes above and beyond what you expect from a DJ. We really could not recommend him enough. Thank you so much for making our wedding day fantastic, Ian! Best wishes, Mr & Mrs Mayne. More...

We would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Ian who is by far the best DJ we've ever come across. He was helpful from the very begining when we were just at the enquiry stage right through to now. He helped us with the music we had at the church, to the 1st dance and kept people up dancing all night (except when the buffet opened and everyone disappeared). We have even more great pictures thanks to Ian snapping away on the night time. Not only was he proffesional, courtious and nice to all our guests who requested not only songs but sing alongs too but he looked the part too with the set up of the DJ set. Having never met or seen Ian DJ before booking for our wedding day was slightly risky but we were far from disappointed. Thank you Ian, for making our day so special!! - Vicki & Steven More...

Ian was brilliant. got our evening rocking but also sorted all our music for the day! thank you so much. Ian was so friendly, helpful and really captured our theme for the whole day. Ian went above and beyond for us, spending many nights at our home listening and putting together our play lists with all the songs we requested and much more. We will always be thankful, he made our day magical. All of our 120 guests thought Ian was lovely and a few already have asked for his number for their weddings next year. We will highly recommend Ian to all our friends and family, and will definitely book Ian again for all our future parties. A big big thank you Ian for everything, From Melissa & Stu Watson More...

Absolutely amazing!!! From start (9am set up �) to finish, Ian did an incredible job djing our wedding! The whole booking process was simple, straightforward and was as personal as we wanted to make it being able to select literally every song if we wanted to. He also had his mobile number on the table for people to make requests on the night - great touch! The music was seamless and fitted every part... he even gave us a huge help a few days before when we couldn't decide what 3rd song to have when signing the register (stress heads). Ian makes everyone feel so comfortable and gets involved in the running of the day, he essentially played the master of ceremony role for us too, introducing everything and keeping the day moving whilst also keeping the atmosphere upbeat! I cannot fault anything and it's the little personal touches and surprises that make him so special so look no further if you want an amazing DJ! More...

Q&A

I start by talking to you about the music you like and the songs that have particular significance. We also talk about any music or songs that you definitely don't want played.

We can also encourage your guests to get involved in putting forward their suggestions for the music to be included in the DJ set for the night.

The focus is on providing a broad range of music that will cater for everyone's tastes and encourage people to dance.

Playing the big hits that your friends and family know and love is key, but it’s also important to take your guests on a musical journey so you move between genre’s and styles in a structured way.

That’s one of the many skills I can offer as an experienced DJ to sequence and seamlessly mix the music to build and maintain the energy on the dance floor.

If I were to play weak or little known songs or songs people didn’t enjoy, your guests would quickly get bored and become disconnected from the music and the atmosphere would suffer.

Imagine playing pop, soul, R&B, motown, disco, R&B, motown, house and then rock. This just wouldn’t flow and people would get disgruntled at the constant change of music styles and tempo.

However if you switch it to playing a few songs of each genre in sequence, linking songs to transition between genres, play songs that resonate and connect people with moments in time and hey presto you keep people dancing and at the same your other guests start to join in and before you know it the dance floor is packed!

It’s a constantly changing situation so it’s also really important that I pay close attention to the reaction of your guests to the music being played and am prepared to introduce new tracks, change and move things around if necessary, and take the music up or down a gear as and when required.

This is where I can make a real difference as an experienced professional with an in depth knowledge of a wide range of music to select the right songs at the right times from the thousands of tracks available to me.

Sometimes one of the hardest things to do is get people off their seat in the first place, even more so after they have just had a big meal or a buffet, dancing is perhaps not the first thing that people would choose to do.

That’s when I can deploy a few subtle tricks and techniques to get your guests up and moving, so I don’t have to just rely on playing great music, as this alone may not be enough. Sometimes all that’s required is some positive intervention and a little gentle encouragement at the right moment to ignite the night.

I'm professional, fun, friendly and outgoing.

My style is informal which I believe helps your guests to relax and enjoy the moment.

I am clear and confident on the microphone without being over-bearing.

I bring a wealth of experience and expert insight, I'm creative and am happy to work with your ideas so that your celebration is personal and unique.

I love to see people enjoying themselves and having the best possible time.

Making other people happy gives me the most pleasure and of course its nice to get a great reaction on the dance-floor and some fantastic feedback.

The opportunity to do a job I love with the freedom and ability to deliver outstanding results.

I enjoy meeting people, making people happy and receiving great feedback for the job I do.

Here are 10 good reasons why you should select me:

Quite simply you will secure the services of an outstanding specialist DJ who will use his accumulated experience and creative skills to ensure your celebration is spectacular beyond your wildest expectations.

Together we will finesse the finest details of your celebration exploring you hopes and dreams and developing your ideas using my many years of experience to provide incisive insight into what works.

If you need to know more, here are 10 compelling reasons why you need to book;

​1. You will receive a friendly personal, professional service with outstanding customer service and support.

2. I plan your event and music meticulously with you. I welcome your song suggestions and of course take requests on the night.

​3. I have an extensive collection of music from all genres from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s 90’s and noughties including all of the party favourites, through to the current charts, latest releases as well as many specialist remixes. I have over 40,000 music tracks available at the touch of a button.

4. I am skilled DJ, Compere and Presenter with over 20 years experience in a variety of settings. I am confident and clear on the microphone when making announcements or introductions but won’t unnecessarily talk and interrupt the flow of the music. Where appropriate I seamlessly mix the music to create smooth transitions from one song to the next to help keep your guests on the dance floor. I can also be persuasive in getting dancers on the dance-floor if they need some encouragement in a fun way.

5. I use only the highest quality sound, lighting and play-out equipment which is serviced regularly checked and tested to ensure it is fit for purpose.

Audio - Full quality sound providing a nice deep bass with crystal clear mid and high frequencies.

Lighting - All lighting is computer controlled providing a classy coordinated lighting show. I use a professional starlit DJ booth which acts as a centre piece to the DJ set up in a choice of black or white. A range of wash lights, moving heads spot lights delivering stylish wedding gobo’s and prism effects, a high grade scanner that delivers more than 80 agile light beams, each beam chasing the other while continuously changing colour and gobo patterns, 3D Lasers, illuminated lighting podiums and complementary up-lighting.

DJ Play-out - This is club standard Pioneer Nexus set up or a Pioneer DJ Controller.

6. The Party Must Go On - I carry back up equipment so can easily switch equipment in the unlikely event of any failure. I have contingency plans in place for all potential foreseeable events.

7. I operate a fully legal and safe business - I am registered with the HMRC, hold public liability insurance of £10m, undertake venue visits, prepare risk assessments and ensure my equipment is regularly checked and is safe for use.

8. I take your stress away liaise directly with the venue regarding access and any specific requirements they have so you don't have to. I will be at the venue in good time to ensure that the equipment is set up safely and in such a way to minimise any inconvenience to your guests.

9. I communicate regularly and confirm everything in writing. I’m very easy to contact and very responsive to any questions or queries you have in the run up to your wedding or celebration. Everything is planned, checked and confirmed, so your celebration and the music is just the way you want it.

10. I have a 100% client satisfaction and 5 star record and often receive letters, cards, emails and social media expressions of deeply sincere thanks from couple's who have used my services. I regularly get follow on bookings as well as referrals because of the quality of what I do.
