More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ, London at Fulham Palace for Zoe and Julian

December 12, 2014

Zoe and Julian came over from their home in Costa Rica to be married on home turf in their neck of the woods - Fulham.  Not unsurprisingly the armosphere of the day, including the music, carried Latin vibes, and a general international flavour as guests had journeyed from all corners of the globe to attend.  I was delighted to be their London Wedding DJ for such a grand affair.  Zoe and Julian had asked me to plan and supply

 

  • ceremony music

  • mood lighting for the ceremony, drinks and canapes and evening reception party

  • jazz, swing, latin and blues music for drinks and canapes using my portable battery powered speaker system

  • swing, lounge and jazz music for the wedding breakfast

  • wireless microphones for the speeches

  • DJ for the evening reception

There was a strong social buzz all day and the evening party went with a swing - see the full playlist below.
