More than just a DJ

Dulwich Wedding DJ for Naomi and Drew

January 31, 2015

Naomi and Drew celebrated their wedding day with friends and family from all over the UK and also from Western Australia, as Drew is from Perth, WA.  It was an informal celebration (bangers and mash for dinner) but a great one.  The atmosphere was convivial all day and this lead to an amazingly choereographed First Dance of nearly ten minutes in length, with many of the younger men and ladies involved - see the pictures below.  From there it was party on to an 11pm finish.

 

I supplied

  • music for drinks and canapes

  • staged entrance for bride and groom to wedding breakfast

  • background music to the wedding breakfast

  • wireless microphone for MC and speeches

  • musical introductions for the speakers

  • transition to evening entertainment

  • reception party DJ

 

St Faiths at Dulwich is a fairly plain community hall with many harsh white lights and so my challenge was to light it fit for a celebration.  As well as as a small stage it had a large mirror, and each side of the hall had some well apportioned arches.

Naomi and Drew commenced their First Dance alone, and then Stage Two, the girls joined in

and for Stage Three the guys got involved

and from there it was a great party all the way; see the full playlist below
