More than just a DJ

Marquee Wedding Celebration, Cool Vintage Theme

May 1, 2016

Laura and Liam met at University and it was love at first least it was for Liam!  That much I remember from the speeches, as well as a huge expression of love and fun shared with family and friends from far and wide.


The consultation with Laura clearly demonstrated a lot of thought regarding music and how it related to important events and times in their lives, and who was with them.  Meaningful music resonates and sends positive waves through the dancing crowd.  Celebrations are always better for it.  The playlist, as shown below in full, clearly shows this.


As well as music, and event planning, the speeches benefited from a wireless microphone.  Some people speak softly, others are hard of hearing but everyone wants to hear the speeches.  


The full playlist for the evening was as follows:
