More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ, London at Carlton Mitre for Catherine and Jayme

November 2, 2014

This was a very happy and at times explosive celebration for Catherine and Jayme at a gorgeous venue situated on the banks of the The Thames.  Family, friends and guests had literally travelled from all over the world, as their careers in showbiz had made them many friends in far flung places.  The entertainment connection strongly influenced the music selection for the wedding breakfast (see full playlist below) and made for some great shapes on the dance floor in the evening.  

 

Once again I was excited to be London Wedding DJ for a wonderful couple.  But more than that I was delighted to be working for a bridal couple, and guests, who were equally passionate about music and entertainment.

 

On the day I

 

  • managed and supplied ceremony music

  • gave emcee announcements and smoothed transitions between stages

  • staged and managed individual introductions for the bridesmaids, Best Lady and the Leading Ladies for entrance to the wedding breakfast

  • played background music for the wedding breakfast

  • supplied microphones for speeches

  • was reception DJ, see the full playlist below

  • supplied Party Props to add entertainment and make for some great pictures
