More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ, London at China Boulevard for Matt and Suki

September 28, 2014

Matt and Suki were great hosts and a delightful couple to work for - Wedding DJ London once more!!  They had family and guests join them from all round the world,  not just China, as Suki is Chinese Malay, but from Hong Kong, Germany, the US and elsewhere.   I was asked to supply background music to the wedding breakfast and also for the evening reception party.

 

As the event was held on a Sunday, and many had travelled large distances in the UK, as well as from abroad, I was conscious of keeping it up tempo from an early stage as many guests were likely to make an early departure.  In keeping with this thought he music for the wedding breakfast was slightly higher energy than usual and it fitted the celebratory mood of the event perfectly.   My prediction for the evening was correct, as about 90% of the guests had departed within 45 minutes of the First Dance ending!!

 

Suki rapping to Matt, from her favourite song Senorita by MC Jin.

The venue was set up really well.

There was a tradition in evidence whereby the bridal party greeted each table of guests individually with loud cheers and much drinking!!  It really added drama and a great edge to the atmosphere.

The bouquet was tossed to many lovely ladies - not all single though!

Matt and Suki, singing to each other at the First Dance, Amazed by Lonestar.  Brilliant.

We fitted in a conga!

And there was lots more dancing, before guests made their way home for the beginning of the working week.
