Testimonials: Alex & Jat| Temple Newsham House & Walled Garden Marquee | Leeds
Gita, Pete & Paul and the rest of the Divine Sounds team created a brilliant soundtrack for our Wedding ceremony and our Evening Reception. We gave them the challenge of producing the sounds for the ceremony in a listed building Temple Newsham House, followed by drummers in a park, then a diverse multicultural soundtrack for a reception in the Walled Garden Marquee. Gita did a fantastic job (lot’s of people said they have never seen such an active dance floor!), and we loved every second and sound of our wedding! It made for a really memorable day! Thanks again Gita and team!
Testimonials: Greg & Smitha| Brympton House | Yoevil
DJ Shakti helped turn our wedding into a magical music festival. She’s not just a DJ, she deeply cares about music. We are big music fans with broad tastes, ranging from early Bollywood to New York Salsa from the 1970s to hip hop classics and even a bit of cheesy glam rock thrown in. She seriously knows her ‘world’ music but is not snobbish and will play anything you want. We discussed what we liked with her and on the day she had everyone dancing their butts off all night, pleasing all tastes and creating a really lovely atmosphere. She also surprised us by guessing what we might like and dropping tunes we hadn’t even heard but loved. She turned our wedding night into fabulous fun inter-generational dance off and tunes are still ringing in our heads. Also, you couldn’t hire a more friendly, can-do DJ. By the end of the night we’d pretty much forgotten that we’d hired her. If we’d known her we’d have invited her to our wedding anyway!
Testimonials: Premlata Patel & Danny Fagan | The City Rooms | Leicester
Divine Sounds provided the music and other sound equipment for our wedding at the City Rooms in Leicester. We had a truly fantastic day, and the details that Divine Sounds suggested and provided truly helped to bring the day together.
Gita helpfully offered to talk through the Ceremony and the Reception in detail with me a few weeks prior to the event. The suggestions she made made based on her experience of the usual running times of various elements (and her music suggestions for certain elements, some of which I had previously not even thought might benefit from music) were invaluable in finalizing a workable itinerary. Preparation was effected in a calm, efficient and professional manner – from contacting the venue prior to the event to final details, to setting up and taking down the equipment. We felt comfortable enough to just leave the team alone to get on with it, and they certainly delivered. The equipment provided was effective and non-intrusive, and of a very high standard, from the hands free microphone for our wedding celebrant host, to the microphone and stand for those giving readings. Our celebrant commented on how intuitive the team were as regards playing music before, during and after the ceremony. Our guests enjoyed the music during dinner, and we were grateful that Divine Sounds allowed us to use microphones for the speeches. Finally, the music and lighting were exactly what we had wanted and really helped our guests get into the party mood. We appreciated that they took on board our desire for a culturally diverse range of music – prior to our wedding day, as our wedding was Multicultural and we wanted to accommodate both our backgrounds at the wedding. Divine Sounds asked us to provide a short list of songs that we enjoyed listening to. From this list, they crafted a playlist of songs (from the latest chart hits, to classic tunes, to popular Bollywood music) that kept the guests partying through the night, but which was flexible enough to also allow guests to make additional requests throughout the evening – we were very impressed. We enjoyed dealing with Divine Sounds and were provided with a stress-free, professional, and high-caliber service, we would not hesitate to hire Divine Sounds in the future.
Testimonials: Debbie & Amar Rash | Cutlers Hall | Sheffield
We hired Gita and Paul of Divine Sounds to DJ at our wedding at Cutlers Hall, Sheffield. When we met Gita and Paul we found them to be friendly, approachable, knowledgeable, professional, reassuring and incredibly flexible. They can satisfy literally any musical genres.
Gita and Paul provided the music for our civil ceremony, reception and party. All in all they were in action from 2pm through to 1am! They also provided all of the equipment (which sounded fantastic and was clearly of high quality), the microphones for the speeches (with Paul making sure everyone who spoke could be heard clearly with his gadgetry) and also complemented an amazing venue with really tasteful lighting. They blended in and everyone felt that Gita and Paul were very much part of our event. The atmosphere they created throughout was something we’ll never forget and the buzz for those last two songs was special. On the day and since friends and family have asked ‘Where did you find the DJs, they were great’ something I have never heard of at a wedding before! All in all Gita and Paul were brilliant and we would 100% hire them again for other events should the need arise. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone who thinks music is an important part of their event – they won’t let you down. Having seen how they performed and what they offer, the price they charge is another plus. We hope to see (and hear!) them again soon.

Felicity and Ben Jackson | Tipi Wedding in Ecclesall Woods | Sheffield
We got married in Ecclesall Woods in July 2014 on a lovely, hot summer’s day. We hired Divine Sounds to provide the PA and sound engineer for the day and night and they certainly did not disappoint. The service provided was impeccable and Gita was on hand to provide her knowledge and expertise throughout the organization of the wedding and on the day. The set-up of the rig was done quickly and professionally, as was the removal following the end of the party. We’d made our own playlists for the wedding and had an amazing band which were accentuated by the fantastic sound quality provided by Divine. We cannot thank them enough.
Testimonials: Theresa & Stephen Smith | Tipi Wedding, Storrs Woods | Stannington
Divine Sounds were incredible at our recent outdoor wedding in August! Beforehand Gita listened to exactly what we wanted and compiled a special play list just for us, everything was taken into consideration to make sure everyone at the wedding enjoyed the music. The day before the wedding, the Divine Sound crew visited the venue to go over final preparation and go over timings and set ups etc. Gita was fantastic on our wedding day, nothing was too much trouble for her and she really made sure the whole day went without any glitches! We had a Hip Hop wedding reception and everyone was on their feet – it was fabulous. DJ Zeeni who performed is a wicked and very talented DJ!!! I cannot speak highly enough of Divine Sounds; they made our wedding day incredible and went above and beyond what was expected of them worth every penny! I can not to begin to tell you how amazing the music was at our wedding. It was truly fantastic, all of friends were in their elements and even the oldie joined in! Thank you for all your help on the day, you really did make our experience magical You are a super star X
Testimonials: Pippa and Dal | Kenwood Hall Hotel | Sheffield
I knew when I was planning the music for my wedding that I wanted a combination of Asian music and R&B / modern music in order to cater for all my guests (mixture of cultures attending and different expectations for the wedding) and I definitely didn’t want all the usual standard wedding music that sounded like the DJ had just put a mix CD on! I didn’t have a clue how I was going to arrange this – hence when I was introduced to Divine Sounds I found the perfect solution. Definitely a unique offering to offer bespoke music for a multicultural wedding. In addition, your ability to ‘manage’ all the music at different stages of the wedding (guests waiting, ceremony, reception, evening dancing) meant that I knew this was all under control and I didn’t need to make multiple arrangements. It was really useful to meet before the wedding and discuss specific types of music and specific songs – it meant that every song that was played was a favorite of ours plus made us think about what we wanted. I was also really grateful for the advice and suggestions regarding lighting and positioning of speakers and equipment within the venue – as Divine Sounds had already worked at the venue it meant you had first-hand knowledge of what worked and what didn’t within the room layout. Loved the music that was played – not sure that I left the dance floor very often! Set-up and removal of equipment was done with the minimum of fuss – discrete equipment that didn’t take up too much space in the venue. Would definitely recommend Divine Sounds for other weddings and occasions.
Testimonials: Richard and Fiona Hennessy | The Botanical Gardens | Sheffield
“My wife and I hired Divine Sounds to provide the musical equipment for our wedding in August 2010. They supplied a PA system for our wedding venue which was the Botanical Gardens in Sheffield and they supplied a second system for our reception which was at my family home. The delivery and set up of both rigs was done quickly, professionally and there were no hitches or glitches. Divine Sounds also supplied a sound engineer as well to ensure that our music sounded as good as it possibly could at the wedding venue. At the reception party they also supplied a DJ who played just the right mix of music for our event and had the whole place dancing! We would highly recommend Divine Sounds to anyone looking for a professional and affordable music equipment hire”
Testimonials: Ali and Nasrine | St Georges Hall | Liverpool
“From the booking process to the day of our wedding reception, Gita was very friendly and professional. Her dedication into making sure that our wedding reception received the perfect music performance was second to none. From as early as a month prior to the day, Gita made sure she received all our music requests and was working on the perfect playlist to suit the various stages of the reception, from the music played during our entrance to the music played during dinner, all while making sure she covered the various genres on request to suite our multicultural wedding and guests. The service was very professional and we would definitely recommend divine sounds to anyone we know and love”
Testimonials: Hazel Walker | Restaurant Bar and Grill | Liverpool
“Fantastic company to work with. Their level of service is so professional and understanding to clients needs, and really suited for working with corporate clients. Their music style is simply energetic and creative, whilst combining a really nice subtle fusion of cultures. We thoroughly enjoyed their set as did our clients, so would definitely book them again. Keep up the great work Divine Sounds!”
Testimonials: Vinu Patel | The Horseshoe Banqueting Suite | Birmingham
“My 50th Birthday Celebrations were held at ‘The Horseshoe Banqueting Suite’ in Birmingham. My Birthday was hosted by Gita from Divine Sounds. I had all my family and friends there. It was the perfect evening, good food, company and the music was divine!
Testimonials: Debbie | Hagglers Corner | Sheffield
Gita made my party! To celebrate my 40th birthday I really wanted a party where everyone danced all night long like we were 20 again! Gita helped me achieve this and made it such a fun experience. When planning my party I would never have thought I would sit and sing tracks I love to my DJ, but Gita is so lovely and warm I did just that! On the night the music was perfect! Gita clearly responds to the party goers energy, so much so all my guests were asking where I found Gita and everyone did dance all night! I would highly recommend Gita and will be not having a party without her in the future. Thank you so much.
Testimonials: Ned and Cath | Brosterfield Farm | Foolow, Derbyshire
Thank you so much for all of your help on Saturday. You really went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly. It was really nice to just be able to relax and know that all of the sound was sorted. We’re really pleased that you could be there to share our day. We hope it didn’t take you too long to pack up and you didn’t get too cold!
Testimonials: Charlies Birthday | Bloo 88 | West St, Sheffield

The music was fabulous and my friends have all commented on how the music set was perfect and how they haven’t danced like they did for ages!! Thank you so much once again!
Testimonials: JoJo & Rob | Wood lane Countryside Centre| Sheffield
We looked into hiring Gita and her team to initially DJ at our wedding reception after a recommendation from a friend who had been to a few parties she had played at. After contacting her we were given a full professional quote by e mail, with options for just the reception or the whole wedding. We were so impressed after meeting her in her studio, not only by her professionalism, confidence, knowledge and equipment, but also how friendly and amiable she is. She was genuinely excited to be part of our day and get stuck in to what we would like. She asked us for a selection of our music choices, and she provided exactly what we wanted and mixed in her own stuff which was excellent and fitted in with the day perfectly. We hired Divine Sounds for the whole day, including the PA system, all taken care of by Gita and the team. She managed to source a copy of my aisle entrance song from overseas from the YouTube video I sent her, played a set for the wedding breakfast, and organised giving out microphones for speeches at the right times etc. Gita also liaised with the band to make sure everything went without a hitch, who were followed by THE most amazing wedding reception all the guests say they’ve ever been to! It was truly an epic party. The whole day went smoothly, and was a load of fun – exactly what we wanted. It was largely due to how Divine Sounds took control and their thorough involvement in the flow of the day, for example communication with the caterers and venue. I would highly recommend Gita and her team – absolutely top class service.
Testimonials: Liz 40th Birthday | Hagglers Corner| Sheffield
“Gita DJed at my 40th birthday party at Haggler’s corner in June 2017. Everything about working with Gita great! She really took the time to find out about me, my music tastes, and the atmosphere I was hoping for at the party. We met before the event to discuss they type of music I liked and had a lot of fun listening to some old and new tracks. She also introduced me to new music, including some awesome world music which went down a storm at my party. The set that she put together was phenomenal and many of the guests commented on how great the music was. I can’t recommend her highly enough if you’re after a bespoke DJ set from someone who really knows their stuff and cares about you and your guests having a great time.”
Testimonials: David and North | Hagglers Corner| Sheffield
‘We hired Gita for a 60th Birthday Party, and we wanted to dance. She was very organised and professional, and took great care to establish what would work for us. She put together a programme that was wide-ranging and creative.. She was calm and joyous on the night, and we felt she was at one with the group we had. She was an essential ingredient of a great night to remember.’
Testimonials: Alfie & Imi | Woodlane Countryside Centre| Stannington
“We can’t thank Gita and her team enough for the fantastic music they provided for our wedding. We found it really hard to pin down exactly what style of music we liked but Gita interpreted our very vague requests perfectly! She even managed to get hold of a really obscure version of a song for our first dance! Divine Sounds managed the music, sound system, light and microphones all day, making sure the whole wedding ran really smoothly. All in all a really helpful, professional, personalised service. I would definitely recommend Divine Sounds to anyone planning an event.”
Testimonials: Toby & Julia | Kelham Island Museum, Sheffield
Choosing to work with Divine Sounds for our wedding reception was a fantastic idea. Gita was such a pleasure to work with and showed a genuine interest and even joy in the fact we were getting married and were going to have a big celebration together. She met with us before the wedding to go over what music we liked and she worked really hard to create playlists that covered all our random tastes in music! Her dinner playlist that she created for us for free was also brilliant and right up our street. Everyone danced loads on the night and the music was great. Gita was also very good value for money given how much equipment and staff she brought with her to run the evening well. We’d highly recommend her for any function or event as we’re sure she’d accommodate whatever you want and do a great job, as well as be a lovely person to work with. All the best Gita, and we’ll certainly pass you on as a recommendation to some other couples we know who are getting married!
Testimonials: Helen and Phil | Hargate Hall, Buxton
Just wanted to say thanks so much for being part of our wedding and all the organisational stuff you did. We had an amazing day and loved the music and dancing, you made the hall look lovely with all the soft lighting.
TESTIMONIALS: MARTYN 50TH BIRTHDAY | HAGGLERS CORNER
Divine Sounds helped me celebrate my 50th in November 2018. With a list of my favourite tunes Gita curated a great playlist that got everyone up and dancing. Thoughtfully put together the tunes flowed from the initial meet and greet thought to buffet and then uninterrupted dance off that took us to a final crescendo and close of party. Not only did she provide a fantastic set on the night she helped me plan the event, one-to-one, in advance of the event, discussing everything from mood lighting, room layout and other party themed logistics. A great, friendly, efficient service that is value for money. I highly recommend them… so get Gita and her Divine Sounds!!!
TESTIMONIALS: ALISON 40TH BIRTHDAY | HAGGLERS CORNER
I was lucky to have Gita as DJ for my 40th birthday party. From the pre-party meetings honing our playlist, through to set up and the actual party itself, we were so impressed with the service we received. Gita took the time to get to know us, our musical tastes and personalities, and produced a playlist which effortlessly mixed 80s, 90s, our beloved early 2000’s house music, trance, guitar music, and the odd cheesy floorfiller. I danced non stop for the entire night. Thanks so much to Gita and the team!
