Wedding DJ Prested Hall for Karen and Jon


indKaren and Jon were married at the rustic Prested Hall in Essex, a lovely location. It was an English/Irish gathering, and that was reflected throughout the celebration. I was asked to supply music for the wedding breakfast, mics for speeches and evening reception entertainment. En route to the venue I was stuck in gridlocked traffic for 90 minutes, as were several guests, one of whom was held up for 5 hours!! As ever I had allowed plenty of time for the journey and the show went ahead on time.

Karen and Jon, for the wedding breakfast, had asked for a mix of music to mainly include Motown, Lounge and Swing; the full playlist is shown below. With my main set up in the Oak Room, I ran leads to set up a speaker in the Wedding Breakfast Room - spot the trailing lead below!

We started the evening reception with the First Dance, followed with a Second Dance for close family and then immediately into the reception party itself. There was lots of great dancing - see the pics below.
