60th Wedding Anniversary!!

What a pleasure to be London Party DJ for a 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. How many couples make it to that landmark number? Very few I would suspect. Family convened from as far away as California for this special night at Eltham Lodge.

It was asked that I play significant tunes from the 60s as the guests arrived for

  • pre-dinner drinks

  • dinner

  • party

and then expand the set as the evening went on - see the full playlist below.

A special tune, the Anniversary Waltz, was played for Jean and Ted's special dance as well as several other important tracks to mark this once in a lifetime gathering.

Anniversary Waltz, DJ Jules, London Party DJ
