More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ The Horniman Museum

August 14, 2015

The Horniman is a fantastic museum and also a wonderful venue in which to hold a wedding celebration.  As well as a venue full of character there are many locations around the site for great photos.  The on site location caterers are also fairly fantastic - the Suzanne James company.

 

Hannah and Pippa had planned very well indeed for all stages of their special day and after consultation at the venue I was pleased to supply:

 

  • ceremony music

  • music for the drinks reception

  • organisation of the walrus selfie competition!!

  • mood lighting

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • transition to evening

  • evening DJ entertainment

 

During the day guests were invited to go take a selfie in the Museum with the infamous walrus as company.  The images were sent to me for editing and then placed on a Slideshow for everyone to view.   See below.
