More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ Charlton House

September 12, 2015

Adele and Sunny's day was full of love and happiness; such a grand occasion.  Guests had travelled from far and wide for their special day.  It was my pleasure to be with them the whole day and I supplied


  • mood lighting for all the reception rooms

  • ceremony music played from mobile battery powered PA

  • drinks reception music in the garden, again using mobile battery powered PA

  • grand introductions for the bridal party to the wedding breakfast

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • an MC service

  • staging of bouquet toss, cake cutting and First Dance

  • DJ entertainment for the evening reception party

Below you see the colour of the mood lighting, a soft blush pink, perfectly complements the bridal flowers.

Following the drinks reception held in the beautiful Peace Garden guests entered the Wedding Breakfast room, the Old Library.  The bridal party held back and I conducted staged introductions for the Groomsmen, Bridesmaids and lastly the Bride and Groom.  The atmosphere was electric.

Of course background music was then played while the guests wined and dined - see the full playlist below.  Speeches followed, for which I supplied a wireless microphone service.

After a break for the room turnaround we moved into the evening reception party and what a memorable celebration it was.....the pictures say it all.
