More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ Secret Garden Restaurant for Rob & Imogen

August 30, 2014

For this magic setting it is as it says, a beautiful hidden walled garden with marquee nestled behind a lovely country house, not far off the M20.   Rob and Imogen asked me to supply an evening DJ service, with the dance floor being sectioned off in the near left hand end of the marquee as shown below.  My set up is pictured also below.

 

The evening commenced with my playing background and warm up music and then we were swiftly on to the First Dance, Nina Simone's - Feeling Good.  From there of course we into the evening celebration which curtailed with the bride and groom leaving to Frank Sinatra's Come Fly With Me

 

Dancing to Michael Jackson's Thriller!
