More than just a DJ

Indie Wedding DJ, The Horniman Museum

July 1, 2016

Thankfully the thunderous skies skirted the venue, for the most part, allowing Becki and Jay's wedding to progress largely as planned at the glorious Horniman Museum Conservatory.  The Horniman is beautifully situated for amazing views looking west towards the central London skyline and has itself a wealth of interesting and stimulating artifacts on view all year round; it's quite an amazing place.

 

The spectacular grounds and architecture offer a great range of photo opportunities and as day moves into evening, the mood lighting of the Conservatory makes for a special ambience.

 

Becki and Jay were, and are, very much into their indie music.  Thankfully their guests were also.   These tastes were to be reflected in the music throughout their special celebration.  In addition to indie they wanted a Motown/Soul/Funk start to the evening reception - see the full playlist below.

 

For Becki and Jay I was delighted to be their All Day Wedding DJ, supplying:

 

  • music for the ceremony - welcoming, processional, signing and recessional

  • grand entrance to the wedding breakfast for ALL the key members of the bridal group

  • background music for the wedding breakfast

  • transition to evening entertainment

  • staging of special moments

  • mood lighting for the conservatory

  • evening reception party

 

The dancing started early and never relented - a great celebration................................
