More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ Westerham

July 31, 2015

Matt and Lauren chose well in selecting the chic Bakery Restaurant in Tatsfield, Westerham as their location for an intimate wedding celebration.  This venue has great light and a very warm and welcoming feel.  It also serves up excellent food!!  Matt and Lauren were married elsewhere and my service for them commenced as they arrived at The Bakery:

 

  • music for drinks reception

  • MC duties throughout the day

  • grand entrance for the wedding breakfast

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • specific music for cake cutting

  • evening entertainment

 

As regards music Matt and Lauren had selected preferred tunes for all stages of their day (see the full playlist below), but when it came to the evening entertainment they were happy for me to go with the flow as their guests responded to music other than what they personally would have preferred.  I still managed to play many of their Must Plays as you would expect.

Matt and Lauren had selected a clean mediterranean feel for their colour scheme and I complemented this with some blue mood lighting for the dining end of the facility.

As with many of the events this summer as it was an extremely hot and stifling evening and it was some while before the serious dance action started but once we got going it was non-stop.
