Dean & Kaylin’s Wedding

Congratulations to Dean & Kaylin on a beautiful wedding! Dean & Kaylin celebrated their Big Day on the 30th June 2018 at The Venue Fontana.
It all started off in the Forest where they had their Wedding Ceremony and followed down tot he river for Pre-drinks whilst a band entertained them and then to the Reception area where the party began.

When I met with Dean & Kaylin, they explained what they wanted for the first dance. From that day… i knew this would be something special in my “book” of Weddings. Check out this video

Feedback from Kaylin & Dean

Jarryd is professionalism personified! We knew from the minute we started planning our wedding there was no one other than KZN wedding DJ! Our day was absolutely perfect, from our ceremony set up in the forest and all the way through our reception. Jarryd read the crowd perfectly combining the perfect mix of classics and current hits. Let’s not forget to mention the live mixing of our wedding song he did… timed perfectly! To all the future brides and grooms out there, there is no other DJ option!

Father fo the Groom:
Friendly professional service, with excellent attention to detail. This from the initial setup for the forest wedding ceremony, right through to the last dance at the reception.
I sincerely recommend everyone to engage with Jarryd of “KZN Wedding DJ” to enhance their wedding day experience.

Congratulations to the two most amazing humans!!! Jared & Natalie celebrated their Big day at Barker Manor on the 19th May 2018.
Thank you so much for allowing “Jarryd’s Uncle” to be a part of such a special day and most of all, to be your DJ!!

Feedback from Jared & Natalie

From start to finish, Jarryd provided a great service to us. My wife and I are so pleased with how our wedding went, and the music forms a big part of this satisfaction.

One thing I really appreciated about Jarryd was his enthusiasm about our wedding, and how right from the start he wanted to be involved in the process, in an authentic way and not just from a distance.

I will definitely be recommending @djjarrydsunkel to my family and friends when future events arise.

Thanks so much Jarryd!!

Feedback from Ross & Shannon

Shannon and I were married on the 18th of May 2018 and after seeing Jarryd in action at my brothers wedding before, there was nobody else we had in mind to orchestrate our celebrations! Jarryd is incredibly professional and outstanding in his work! He can read the crowd and kept the dance floor busy all night! If I could do it all again I wouldn’t change a thing!

Carla & Clint’s Wedding

CONGRATULATIONS to these two very special humans.. Carla & Clint who celebrated their magical Wedding day at SweetHome Weddings on the 28th April 2018. Not only did they have such a great bunch of family and friends… but they were both super lucky to have won some great Wedding Goodies from Hooray Weddings. Thank you to everybody who made this day happen.


Wow, I , as well as other family and friends, have not stopped talking about the DJ at my brother’s wedding – Jarryd Sunkel! As a couple in our late 30’s having attended many functions and weddings, Jarryd is undoubtedly the BEST DJ we have come across!

His professionalism and friendliness starts way before the big day, with a “one on one” coffee, getting to know his clients, like really get to know them – who takes the time to do this these days?

Everyone was greeted by his HUGE smile at the chapel where he even took some top class pics – he has kindly let us use one of his pics to enter our daughter into a baby competion and I’m framing a few of his other ones – they were THAT good!  There was no “warming up the dance floor” – it PUMPED from the first song – the dance floor was jam packed with Old and young (18 month olds to over 70’s)- the entire night!

Thanks to Jarryd, a lot of us could hardly walk for the following two days due to over exertion on the dance floor – blistered feet and sore muscles! Personally I would vouch for anyone using Jarryd to invest in adult nappies if you suffer from FOMO – you really feel like you are missing out if you leave the dance floor for a minute.

He got so involved with the crowd! On his feet, again that huge smile, arms in the air!!!

A DJ will make or break your wedding (speaking from personal experience). Thank you thank you thank you Jarryd, for MAKING this day SO special!!!

Laurian & Ronald’s Wedding

CONGRATULATIONS to Laurian & Ronald who celebrated their beautiful Wedding at Providence Country Estate on the 21st April 2018.
It all started  with a Box of Wicked Donuts… and it all got better!!! Laurian was one of our Competition Winners so one fine day sitting at her desk, an unexpected delivery was awaiting her at her office desk… Yes… the Letters “KZN WEDDING DJ” in Donuts compliments of Wicked Donuts on her desk.

I also had the honour of working with the legendary Stuart Dods who is not only a fellow service provide but also a personal friend of mine and after a lot of friendly banter on the day, it only got better…

The marriage officer announced for “Stuart the DJ” to start the music… and of course “Jarryd the Photographer” had to get ready to capture the moments.. .  Lets just say it broke the ice and everybody had one hell of a laugh.  #NameSwop

What an amazing Wedding!!! Thank you so much for having us Laurian & Ronald.

Feedback from Laurian & Ronald
