More than just a DJ

All Day Wedding DJ Berkshire

Jen and David are very avid music fans and they had firm ideas for the music mix for all aspects of their wedding day - the ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception party.  We had really useful discussions in the run up to their event as to what they and their guests wanted and we settled on what I think is the best solution for me, and my clients - they gave me their fixed and essential Must Plays and let me do the rest - see the full playlist below.

 

Jen and David were married early on the Saturday morning with just close family and friends.  They wanted their wider group of family and friends to witness their marriage and therefore the ceremony performed at The Elephant Hotel was a repeat performance but far more informal whilst still very emotional.  The informality and relaxed ambience carried through the day.  It was a great celebration and I was delighted that Jen and David were very appreciative of my services.

 

For their event I was pleased to supply

 

  • advance event consultation

  • supply of ceremony music and playout

  • portable battery powered PA for music in the outdoor drinks reception

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • wireless microphones for speeches

  • background music to the wedding breakfast

  • evening reception DJ

 

The First Dance, with Jen and David dancing to Rodriguez's Silver Words.

All set for the ceremony, portable PA set up to the front left

Onto the drinks reception and again the portable PA is perfect for the job

The PA was thereafter moved in for the wedding breakfast where it was used for background music and PA for speeches.  All too soon we moved into transition for the evening entertainment.  This man was up for it, supporting wheels and all!!  A very inspiring moment.
