I cannot begin to recommend Mick highly enough. Our wedding was a big one, with 250 friends and family members from every corner of the country and every walk of life, and from the moment that the music started playing, EVERYONE was on the dance floor! Mick's help started long before the dancing began...in the months leading up to the event, he gave us great recommendations for music selections and general logistical decisions. On the evening fo the wedding, he made the room look beautiful with the addition of uplighting, and helped facilitate a seamless transition from one part of the evening to the next. His crowning accomplishment was a set list that had everyone on their feet all night! Mick is your man if you want a DJ who can really read a crowd.Sent on 05/15/2017

Mick was amazing!! Not only was he was our DJ he was also our emcee. He is very passionate on what he does and has a lot of great recommendations for different types of music during the timeline of your wedding. He is also a great listener and played the songs we wanted. He can even customize certain songs for your ceremony. Our wedding was a few months ago and some of our guests are still raving about the music. After the wedding, he writes about your day on his blog along with a video of photos with your first dance song playing in the background. I LOVED our playlist that he put together and sent us a list of songs that were played. He provided uplights in our reception room and it made a huge difference in the mood lighting. We also had his wife, Julie, as our wedding planner. These duo are the simply the best! Don't look no further and sign on with Mick!Sent on 11/01/2017

Mick is AMAZING! I was referred to him by a family friend who had him at their wedding. I actually had both Mick and his wife Julie (she is a wedding planner) for my wedding. Luckily I snatched them up before they got booked as i know they are in high demand.Sent on 04/08/2017
I have been to many weddings and Mick is honestly the best in his field. He knows what music will keep people dancing all night and that is what i wanted at my wedding. He went above and beyond to make the night memorable and fun. He also makes himself available for any changes up until the last minute. The night before the wedding I emailed him a song i wanted to make sure was played during dinner and he responded right away and made sure the song was played.
The day after the wedding Mick sent me a video of our wedding reception with pictures him and Julie had taken and had our first dance song as the background music. He also sent a list of all the songs played at our wedding. That was such a special treat and something I did not expect.
Mick is worth every penny and if you are able to book him for your wedding you are in for a treat!

Mick went above and being to create a perfect wedding for us. His attention to detail, thought into every song, and help with lighting and the overall event flow, helped make this a wedding that our guests uniformly called the best they'd ever been to.Sent on 11/25/2016
He is timely, considerate, and knows music AND wedding dancing better than anybody you will ever meet. Thank you Mick!

Mick was awesome! I come from a family of dancing people- and he kept them on the dance floor all night! Mick provided great suggestions for both ceremony and reception music. He has a great attitude and is a great DJ! If you are looking for someone who is great at getting and keeping the party going then Mick is your guy.Sent on 08/19/2016

From the moment we met Mick he got us excited and pumped and had many great ideas on how to get our guests active and dancing all night long. Come the wedding day everything went perfect from the cocktail hour music to the music ending the night everyone told us how much they loved the music and were dancing all night long. Highly recommend Mick, and the bonus was the special video he sent us with highlights from our wedding right before our honeymoon.Sent on 11/07/2016

Mick is a total professional which was the primary reason we decided to go with him, and we are so happy we did! We had been to a wedding with him a couple of years ago and had a great time, so he definitely came to mind when looking at all of our options. He has tremendous experience and even offered his input and advice in other areas of the planning and timing things throughout the evening. We had SO many compliments from our guests on the energy and music at our event. People absolutely loved our grand entrance and Mick was the mastermind behind how we kicked off the reception. It totally set the tone for a fun and lively reception. He offers his opinions based on his experience and what he has seen work or not work musically at events over the years and he is also very accommodating of your song preferences. For us, one of the most important aspects of hiring vendors was finding people that we knew we would not have to worry about or babysit. Because Mick is so organized and experienced, we knew that was one part of the wedding planning that was off our plates as soon as we hired him. He infused a wonderful energy into our event and we are happy to recommend him to anyone that is looking to throw a really fun party!Sent on 10/31/2016

Mick is awesome! Everyone said our wedding had the best music. Mick has been in the business for a long time and gave us a lot of helpful advice for our wedding. He did such a great job keeping the fun vibe and everyone on the dance floor! Thank you mick!!Sent on 10/29/2017

So we learned about Mick through a friend referral. We had our initial meeting with him and knew on the spot that we wanted to hire him. He knew exactly what songs to play to make our guests dance and we completely relied on his song choices other than the important first dance, etc. Our wedding guests are still talking about how amazing he was as a DJ. He was fun, entertaining and our dance floor was full so we were happy. Not to mention that we had the most amazing time at our wedding and we wouldn't do anything differently. Absolutely recommend hiring Mick as your DJ, he is the best.Sent on 09/28/2016

I have hired Mick for all my wedding and event parties and at this time he has already hosted three of them. He is absolutely wonderful! He knows how to encourage guests on to the dance floor and they always have so much fun. I will continue to ask him to host my functions and I very highly recommend him to host your event.

Mick was fantastic! He knows how to get a crowd going, brought humor to the night and was very easy to work with. He played all the songs we wanted, didn't go rogue and our guests LOVED him! If you want your night to be memorable and don't want to worry about a DJ that makes it all about himself, HIRE The Elite British DJ. He's The Man. You'll be glad you did!Sent on 08/18/2016
Natalie · Married on 08/13/2016
Mick was fantastic! He made some great suggestions for ways to make our event unique. He is straight forward and honest, will give you his opinion but will also listen first and foremost to what your preferences are. We really appreciated his guidance and ideas. Added bonus - his wife Julie (The Best Wedding for You) is a coordinator. Hire them both! They work so well together and are tons of fun. P.S. When he recommends the Should Dance, say yes!Sent on 09/10/2016

I would recommend Elite British DJ to anyone, and everyone who needs a DJ! He was the absolute BEST, and I could not have asked for anything better at my wedding. Mick was more than a DJ, he hosted and kept the party flowing with his great sense of humor. He is exceptional at what he does and well worth the money. All of my friends and family who attended the wedding complimented Mick and the great music he played. I love Elite British DJ and will definately be using his services again.Sent on 07/14/2016

My husband and I hired Elite British DJ for just the reception portion of our wedding day. From the get go, it was clear that Mick knew exactly what did and didn't work at weddings, and what to play to ensure everyone had a good time. On the wedding day, Mick read the crowd and played songs that got everyone up and dancing, and had me cracking up with laughter during dinner. He took requests from the guests, but filtered out those he knew would kill the mood. My husband and I were having so much fun that we didn't want the party to stop! I keep hearing from my guests that it was one of the best weddings they've ever been to, and I know that is in large part due to Mick Scrivener of Elite British DJ.Sent on 06/28/2016

If you need a DJ, stop looking at yelp for other reviews or other DJ’s and just call Elite British DJ. Mick surpassed all our expectations when he helped us plan the music for our wedding and then made the actual night fun and spectacular. Everything was perfectly timed, the music sounded great, the setup was well-organized, and everyone had a wonderful time dancing. The last thing you want at a wedding is an awkward DJ trying to coax people out onto the dance floor and his efforts falling flat. Mick has flair and a great way of interacting with the crowd, the bride and groom, and the wedding party to make the night so much fun.Sent on 05/24/2016
He works with an online form for you to fill on the music for each event at your wedding (processional song, first dance song, last song of the night etc), and then has a place for you to fill in some must play songs, would like to play songs, and do not play songs. Mick was very easy going about helping us choose songs. He would explain why certain songs would work well and certain songs were less successful, but ultimately we always felt that the decision was ours with no pushing from him. We gave him a lot of freedom with our music and he delivered an amazing playlist that we thoroughly enjoyed. We had so many people dancing through the night, and since it was a wedding with people aged from 12-82, we thought that was pretty impressive!
He’s responsive, professional, actually British, and has a great sense of humor. He had a short vacation but was still available for any questions and always got back really quickly to us. He also had some really good ideas about unique things to try, or good timing for music that got us some great photos and a lot of excitement from our guests. We’ve heard a lot of people say that the DJ can make or break your wedding. If this is the case, then Mick made it for us. His work is truly excellent on all fronts.
Rob · Married on 04/30/2016
We recently had Mick DJ our wedding. We were behind on many things leading up to our wedding and Mick made the experience working with him simple and easy. He let us make all our decisions, but did give us a great deal of welcomed advice from his experience from doing this so many, many times. Thankfully in each instance, his advice was really the way to go, keep the flow, add to the excitement of the entire day/night. He made some on the fly suggestions based on how the flow of the evening was going and they were spot on. He really played with how the crowd reacted to everything to make sure our guests had a great time. I was told by many people that this was the most fun they have ever had at a wedding. We thank Mick for that!Sent on 05/18/2016

Mick was the first vendor we picked after we got engaged...we firmly believe that good vibes are essential on the dance floor!Sent on 08/17/2016
Elite British DJ came highly recommended and with good reason. Mick was very professional and took all our requests into account using his online platform. As we had a solid English attendance at our wedding, he made sure our guests from "across the pond" had some tunes to boogey to, and let's just say, the Americans were more than happy to participate.
Mick also gave us great feedback on our wedding timeline while remaining flexible and personable throughout the whole process. If he is available on your wedding day, count your lucky stars and book him. The man knows what he's doing!
Jaime · Married on 04/16/2016
WOW. Just wow. If you are looking for a wedding DJ, your search should end here. Mick made our wedding day spectacular and seamless. He ran the timeline perfectly and allowed us to sit back and enjoy the time with our family and friends. Everyone raved about him and the music, and everyone had a fantastic time! I am so happy that we went with all of his unique suggestions, especially playing Shout! right after the first dance. That was my favorite moment of the entire day. He even took a video of this moment and several pictures throughout the day and made us a beautiful slide show which he promptly sent us the next day after our wedding! Mick truly went above and beyond and we are so grateful.Sent on 05/02/2016
Mick was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end. He was very responsive throughout all of the planning phases and very helpful. He helped us make our wedding very personalized to us and also fun for our guests. I was so happy that I listened to his suggestions where we needed them as he is the professional and knows what works best. I couldn't be more pleased that we hired him for our wedding!
Brian · Married on 03/11/2016
We unfortunately had thunderstorms start about an hour before the ceremony, but fortunately we had Mick on our side. He helped transform a plain white tent into an amazing place to have a ceremony and all the guests loved it. The music was great and he had the entire wedding party dancing all night. Lastly, not only were his lights and music perfect, but he kept checking in with us to make sure we were ok and we implemented all his suggestions which were awesome. That rain could've really bummed us out but having him there to assure us that everything was going to be ok meant the world to us.Sent on 03/17/2016
thanks for a wonderful night!
Chih · Married on 03/05/2016
Right from the first meeting, we could tell he was experienced and professional... by his presentation, his website, his tips. He also loved to talk about music, so we could tell he was passionate about what he does. He was the right amount of listening to our ideas and giving his own recommendations. His predictions of how people would react to certain songs were spot on (so LISTEN TO HIM!). He is super organized; I loved his online system where you can you log in and organize your song requests, including prioritizing them from "must play" and "do not play." He also requested a final meeting with us closer to our wedding date to review all our song choices and discuss them, but still leaving us the flexibility of making any last minute choices in the days leading up to the wedding.Sent on 03/07/2016
At the wedding, he did not surprise us with anything that he said he would or wouldn't do previously. However he did pleasantly surprise us with a slideshow with a recording of my friends singing a personalized song about us at the reception. When he made announcements, he was well rehearsed, not overly verbose, funny at times, and looked for ways to keep the feel personalized. There were no technical issues (that we knew of); everything worked smoothly and the sound quality was great. We had a ton of guests coming up to us asking how we found him.
If we were to do it all over again, we would still choose him! (and his wife as coordinator, but that's for a separate review)

Mick of Elite British DJ is the best for so many reasons! When you hire Mick, you are getting more than a DJ for your special day. Mick is amazing with suggestions, creativity, knowledge of music, personality and charm! I cannot say enough about the wonderful job he did for our small wedding-he was the entire entertainment for the reception (besides us, of course). We received many compliments from our family and guests remarking how personable and talented he was that day. As a bonus, we received a professional and beautiful slide show the very evening of our wedding which was such a special remembrance of the day. We were so glad we chose Mick for our wedding and cannot thank him enough! THANKS AGAIN,MICK!Sent on 03/11/2016

The Elite British DJ will make your wedding (or party)!!! My husband and I had a Comic-Con themed wedding last year. We met Mick (and his wife, Julie (The Best Wedding For You)) at a catering event on the military base. After meeting them, my husband remembered he was the DJ for his friend's wedding a few years ago. We explained that our wedding will be on Halloween and he was already excited. We met with him twice before the wedding to discuss music selection. Mick has an incredible site with music lists you can choose from as well as adding your own to your profile. On our last meeting with him before the wedding, he would point out what music would and would not work for the guests. He was so right!!! He kept everyone on the dance floor ALL night long! That night was also his 1,000 wedding! What a way to celebrate! He helped us with the ceremony and the reception music selection. He also suggested that after the bouquet-garter toss that he step in for the guy to slip on the garter blindfolded. The music was memorable for us and our guests! He even puts together a blog of our memorable day: http://www.sandiegoweddingdjblog.com/?p=5139Sent on 05/15/2016
Book Elite British DJ (and The Best Wedding For You) to make your wedding day memorable. (People are still talking about our wedding!)

Mick was everything we wanted and more! You can truly see how passionate he is about music, which is awesome!Sent on 11/24/2015
He had great recommendations for our playlists, and got our guests movin’ and groovin’ when he kicked off our wedding with a crowd favorite. Mick was on point throughout the night and the wedding flowed perfectly. He has a fun, personable and charming personality, which complimented our style. His wife Julie was the coordinator for our wedding and the two worked SO WELL together. We’re still receiving compliments from our friends and family about how wonderful our wedding coordinator and DJ were. Chris and I were so lucky to have met him and his wife at one of the Bridal Shows in Del Mar.
Can’t say enough about how amazing that night went thanks to Mick and Julie!

Was able to use the online portal provided to relay song information and request specific songs prior to the wedding. Very organized and everything went off well. The selection of music play (requests and non requests) fit the mood of the wedding well. Great experience overall.Sent on 11/10/2015

WOW, just WOW! We had so many positive comments about our wedding and how fun it was. I believe Mick had a lot to do with that. He was extremely professional from start to finish with a friendly, warm touch. Not only did he play the music for us, but he also helped organize and keep things running smoothly thru out the wedding and reception. He had fun, great ideas that I haven't seen at weddings before. To our surprise, he also created a slide show from photos he took, with my son singing in the background. He went above and beyond what we were expecting. Needless to say, we were very impressed and would highly recommend his services to anyone who wants a memorable and fun event.Sent on 11/14/2015
