WhO I Am
Hey! I'm Mark Wild, as you'd probably already guessed! Firstly can I start by informing you that I'm not an agent who will delegate work to anyone else, I'm the guy you'll communicate with until your big day and I'm also the guy that'll be there with you when your big day reaches party time that evening! I'm a full time professional in what I do and that is to provide a quality service to you from the get go right until the very last tune of your big day! I'm very easy to contact at anytime with any questions and queries you might have which I feel is so important when you have so much to organise. You won't wait long for a reply from me.
I'm 43 years old which puts me in my prime to be a wedding DJ, bang smack in the middle of the ages of most of your guests for the evening! I've been a DJ and compère for over 20 years now and covered many a gig in many a situation, from 5 years as a resident DJ/compère in a cabaret club in Tenerife (Rhythm & Booze, Playa Paraiso) to DJing 21st birthday parties to compèreing and DJing corporate Christmas parties for over a 1000 people and also resident in a small local pubs, Full time in the industry for 16 of the last 22 years! But, for the last 'almost' 10 years I've only done weddings, they're such diverse gigs which require a sprinkling of lots of different aspects of the skills I've acquired over the years, the most enjoyable yet challenging (to get right) gigs to anyone in the industry!

What I Charge
The Principal, George St. Edinburgh. The Wedding of Paul & Karla Appleby March 2017.
The majority of weddings I've worked over the last almost 10 years fall into the same pricing bracket. if your chosen venue is within a 30 mile radius of where I'm based in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, if you have 250 guests or less attending and you require me for no more than 5 hours my fee is £695
this is fully inclusive of the hire and set up/take down of all the sound and lighting equipment you require.
During my time as a wedding DJ I've worked all over Scotland and indeed England, I will travel and DJ weddings anywhere but obviously expenses and extra charges will be factored into the fee you pay.
Drumtochty Castle. The Wedding of James & Lieneke May 2017
The diversity of the guests at your wedding will be huge! The young, not so young, the 'latest chart' cool kids, to the motown soul older kids :) the GBX dance music maddies, the rock n'rolling Elvis fans, the Oasis, James and Stone Roses sing-along fans, country and western line dancers, the sloshers, disco 'Chic' freaks, the cheesers who love a macarena, the northern soul groovers! That's just to name a few too!
There is no set in stone equation to ANY wedding they're all very different and for me, over the years, I've learned to embrace that. As a result making a proverbial cake at every wedding stuffed full of it's own very unique ingredients with the bigger amounts made up of what's working that night! Check out the pictures below from gigs I've done and you'll start to get what I mean!
Some kind words
Wow, those pictures are amazing! Thank you so much for taking them and sending them to us! That was a pleasant surprise! The guests loved the pictures as well, we got lots of compliments of our photographer DJ ;-). The pictures are really great and the Drumtochty staff told us that you were the best DJ that they ever had at Drumtochty! Via this way, we would like to thank you so much for the great performance and helping to make our special day a day never to forget.
Thank you so much and all the best!
James & Lieneke
How are you? Hope you are well. Thank you so much for all your hard work at our wedding reception, we both had a great time. We are so happy with the service you provided us with; the dance floor was never empty. I don't normally dance much but I was on the dance floor all night, I think I stopped once but as soon as I heard my favourite tune being played I was straight back on it again!!!
Thinking back to the planning stage when we chose you, I was so relaxed after we met you; you were very down to earth and friendly. Your knowledge on music really helped us out when choosing our songs and on the night you could tell what songs would get our crowd moving.
I would like to say thank you so much for everything you done, from coming to our house to put me at ease, to playing the right tunes at the right time, to then coming to say goodbye to us and wishing us well at the end of the evening. We cannot praise you enough, thank you so much.
Mr and Mrs Gall !!!!!!!
We can't thank you enough Mark.. What a Wedding reception and it's all thanks to you. The music you played was spot on and not at any point was the dance floor empty. The picture on your Facebook is what the dance floor was like all night. Amazing.
Thank you for taking requests also :-)
Everyone was so impressed and LOVED our evening reception. Again it's all thanks to you.
Hotel management asked for your details as they thought you were fantastic and going to recommend you to their wedding party's.
Lauren & Jim
Mark, we just do not have enough words to thank you for making our wedding day special. First of all, you saved our first dance by providing the music for it hahaha which allowed us to show off several months of grueling dance lessons. Having an international wedding is hard enough to put together as for you...having an international audience was a challenge that you mastered despite the fact that you had to deal with unkown crazy Romanian tunes. You were excellent, you were able to keep young and old on the dance floor so long that next day's most common complaint was numbed feet from dancing.
We look forward to seeing you in New York!
Lilly and Kieron Traynor
How are you? Hope you’re well and got a chance to enjoy the weather whilst it was nice!
I just wanted to send a note to say thank you for the brilliant entertainment at our wedding on the 4th May at Dalziel Park. When we set out to plan the wedding all we really wanted was for everyone to get up and dance and have a great time and you helped us get our wish! We’ve had so many people tell us they loved the music at the wedding and ask us about our DJ so thank you again for guiding us through our song choices and keeping the dance floor full all night.
Ross & Lynsey
Firstly, the fact that you helped us out at such short notice (a few weeks before the wedding!) was really appreciated. Having been let down so close to the wedding by someone else, I was naturally concerned and anxious, but from the moment we made contact with you I had no worries. I felt 100% relaxed and confident, and if anything I am grateful things worked out the way they did. I genuinely believe I would not have received such a professional wedding DJ anywhere else. Even the set up and equipment was far superior to anything I have seen and it used the stage space well (something that I was concerned about).
The whole night was amazing and all the guest thought the same and I honestly think it was down to the music. There was something for everyone and the mood was always high and it made it impossible not to dance! The atmosphere that was created by your music really made the night what it was and we are very grateful. Our wedding reception was better than we could ever have hoped for.
I would tell everyone to use Mark Wild Wedding DJ. Top class, top night – thank you.
