Big Boogie at The Beacon
The Beacon is situated on a hillside with a terrace view that overlooks Tunbridge Wells in the distance. The weather was glorious English at its best. Bride and groom, Cleodie and Stuart, looked fabulous. It was a picture perfect setting for a fantastic celebration. The bride and groom had advised of their preferred tunes and I was pleased to play most of them as the party unfolded.
The marquee was the venue for the wedding breakfast. As the event moved into the evening phase bride and groom, plus their guests came up the newly installed wooden stairway and onto the terrace for the evening celebration. After a lengthy welcoming musical introduction we staged the First Dance and from their a great celebration to lights up at 12 - see the full playlist below.
