‘James Ellis was very easy to work with and everything just flowed to well and seamless. We had a lot of suppliers we were juggling leading up to the day and on the day and James just did his thing with no fuss. Great product as well with the dry ice and made our dance looks magical. Will not hesitate to recommend!’ – Angelo Gnanasigamony Google Review

We recently had DJ James and saxophonist Imre at our wedding. The whole night was so smooth thanks to James’ attention to detail. He went above and beyond, nothing was too much. He adapted so well when our timeline was running a little behind on the night and was full of great advice on the day. He was a calming presence and we honestly felt like he was a huge contributor in the success of our night! Also, his music was AWESOME and the dance floor was a huge hit all night. Highly recommend his saxophonist Imre aswell, who was also excellent. I would highly, highly recommend Only DJ’s

James was highly professional and arranged the set music perfectly. We had a great night!Value added with the pyro, dry ice and photobooth all organised through Only DJ's Melbourne. This took a lot of juggling out of our hands when planning for our wedding.

Wow, what amazing night we had at our wedding on Sunday and huge part of that was having James as our DJ. We wanted a Greek and Aussie mix, and the balance was perfect. James was happy to help with whatever we needed. He was also great at supporting and guiding my uncle at being our MC, which we really appreciated. Highly recommend Only DJs if you're looking for a reliable, fun and knowledgeable DJ.
Simon Huynh
James from OnlyDJs was amazing to work with as a DJ and MC! He handled everything smoothly, from managing my crazy ethnic family (despite the language barriers) and keeping the party going. James read the room perfectly, played great music, organized fun games, and even offered some heartfelt advice. He kept everything on schedule and really boosted the vibe, especially hyping my dad during his speech. I highly recommend James and Only DJ's for any wedding or event - they're fantastic!

On Saturday night we had a joint 50th birthday, Only DJ'S Melbourne was amazing. Steve the DJ set everything up which included lights, which looked fantastic. We had ages from 17 to 78 years old's at the party, everyone got up and danced throughout the night. Thanks to James for the great, quick communication, which took the stress off us for the night, all your work was appreciated. We look forward to our next event, we will be using Only DJ's Melbourne!

We had James DJ at our daughter's 5th birthday disco party over the weekend. He was a pleasure to deal with over emails and provided song lists and suggestions for games. He was very receptive to us providing our own music list too.During the party, he gave our music obsessed daughter an impromptu lesson on DJ-ing before the official event started, he was responsive and warm with all our guests and happy to pivot on additional games and timing as the party progressed throughout the afternoon.Highly recommended - thanks James!

James was super professional and responsive from my initial enquiry to the wedding day and everything in between. Would highly recommend for any event.
Georgette Maria
My husband and I booked James for our son’s baptism celebration at the start of November, and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of DJ. He was excellent and met our every need, checking in with us as the night went on to make sure we were happy. Having a young baby can make it difficult to stick to a run sheet, but James was certain that he was flexible and smoothly worked with the flow of the night and the energy on the dance floor. He played a fantastic mix of music, including our request of specific Greek songs, and worked well with the Lebanese drummers to meet our varying mix of music on the night. James, thank you so so much, we couldn’t be more grateful and are super stoked we chose you for our event. You also received amazing feedback from many guests saying how kind, friendly and enthusiastic. We will definitely be using Only DJs for our future events 🙂
Ellen Vacouftsis

Mr T
James was the perfect choice for our wedding music. He responded quickly to our questions and requests, and paid attention to every detail. He made us feel relaxed and confident, even when we were stressed out by the wedding planning. He was not only a great DJ, but also a supportive wingman, a lively hypeman, and a skilled coordinator. He was a true professional and a joy to work with. We highly recommend him!
Ally Wilwood
James - you went absolutely above and beyond for us at our wedding, and catered to our every individual need.

We absolutely cannot thank you enough! 🥰❤️
Ellie Osianlis
Huge thank you to James Ellis for being an incredible MC and DJ for our wedding.

James was the epitome of professionalism and warmth. He worked well with our emcee to make our wedding night amazing. The dancefloor was packed, the Nutbush was banging, and the energy was fantastic.

Beck Louise
James is amazing. He is professional and organised. He is a hard working, kind and genuine individual, who you would be lucky to have at your wedding. We hired him for SFX, photobooth, dj, and MC. Having him provide so many services allowed the booking and planning to be so easy which is also a main reason why we decided to go with Only DJs. I highly recommend James to anyone, and if we require a dj again will would go with him.
Robin Fowden
10/10. James is a top professional, who you can rely on. I highly recommend you book Only DJ’s, they will go and above and beyond to ensure everyone at your event has a truly memorable time. They have been an absolute pleasure to work with.

James is truly a gentleman and an expert at what he does.We were lucky enough to have him as both our DJ and MC on the night of our wedding and I can not recommend him enough. He was funny, entertaining and got a room with a mixed demographic to dance to multiple styles of music. It was no easy task but the dance floor was full the entire night.His dedication to his craft, his attention to detail and his transparency are nothing short of incredible.From day 1, he was incredibly easy to communicate with and was always willing to offer some advice to my wife and I.He made our big night one to remember. He made us feel comfortable and was in control of everything that was stressing us out.I will recommend him to all my family and friends and will entrust his impeccable work again for any future events.James - you're a superstar and a Levendi! 🇬🇷I will remember you for the rest of my life. 10/10.

Maddison Mason
James was the MC and DJ for our wedding at Dromana Estate in May 2024. We couldn't recommend James more!! We had a modern Greek-Australian wedding and James ticked all the boxes! As an MC, James was funny, engaging and kept the vibe light hearted throughout the evening. As a DJ James took the time to speak with us leading up to our wedding and played all our favourite songs plus got all our guests involved with some traditional Greek dancing and plate smashing! It was the most perfect evening and my husband and I couldn't recommend Only DJ's more. Every interaction we had with James was easy, keeping our minds at ease the whole time! Thank you!!

James from Only DJ's came highly recommended by our wedding venue and I can definitely understand why! He was not only an amazing DJ with a tonne of great songs, but he was also an amazing MC. He guided us through the night perfectly, and he was so considerate and thoughtful with making sure we were prepared and of course happy with everything, and also he made us laugh too which we loved! He always provided prompt and clear responses prior to the wedding which we really appreciated. James also helped us organise our pyrotechnics which looked amazing on the day!! I honestly couldn't recommend him enough!! Thank you again James for everything ☺️
James Tipping
James recent did our wedding on the 26/4/24 and was amazing from start to finish. From the communication, organisation, DJ and MC skills we couldn't be more impressed.

Thankyou James for making our night unforgettable not just for us but everyone who attended.

Exceptional service. We hired James for our wedding with the dry ice and Photo Booth options, these on top of his service were the best addition to our wedding. We felt so special dancing in the dry ice and the Photo Booth gave all the guest plenty of photos to recall the wedding with. Thanks James for taking the stress out of the process with his elaborate planning and thoughtful gestures.

Theo Dimitriu
James was our DJ and MC for our wedding and we could not be happier. The entire reception ran smoothly and the dance floor was always full of people enjoying themselves. Highly recommended and will absolutely reach out to him again if a DJ and MC is needed.In the lead up to the wedding, James was fantastic. He responded quickly to all our questions, gave us suggestions on how to make things run smoothly and really understood what we wanted and made it happen.During the reception, he guided us through the different formalities which was so appreciated (we were so nervous) and throughout the night he was able to read the room and make small adjustments to keep a nice flow of events. We really appreciated the small things he did, for example before speeches he made sure the tables looked clean, glasses were topped up for toasts, he made sure bridal party were ready and he made nervous speakers feel comfortable and supported to make speeches.We cannot recommend James highly enough. If you are looking for a DJ and MC who will make your event an unforgettable night, look no further.

Frequently asked questions

What machine will be used for our wedding dry ice machine hire?

For every dry ice machine wedding hire, we will be using the Chauvet Nimbus, that is the industry standard. We do not use low lying fog machines.

What is the difference between a dry ice effects service and low lying fog?

Low lying fog is mad from a haze machine, that produces a longer-lasting effect but it doesn’t produce the same density of cloud as dry ice does. Dry ice is a chemical reaction where dry ice is placed into hot water causing the water to produce a cloud. Whereas, low-level fog machines use plain ice to lower the smoke machine particles to create the effect.

Will the dry ice effect set off any smoke alarms at my wedding?

No, it will not. It won’t even leave a residue on the floor. Some water may spit out of the machine, but, we will have towels to quickly remove it.

Can we book dry ice effects service for our wedding any day of the week?

Yes, you can. However, dry ice is not available for purchase on Sundays. Dry ice has a very short shelf life and prices will be higher for Sunday bookings as we will need to purchase more.

How big of an area will the dry ice machine create?

It should create an area of fog 6×6 metres.

Disclaimer – Dry ice for Sunday events may not be as effective due to the short shelf life of dry ice and the scarce availability to purchase it on Sundays. Rates will be considerably higher on Sundays to offset the cost of purchasing an additional 3 to 4 times more ice to make it last.
