More than just a DJ

Hot Asian/English Wedding

August 27, 2016

This was a hot and steamy day for Iris and Mark, all set for their wedding celebration at Oxford University, with Mark returning to where he achieved his degree.  It was a stunning setting only spoiled by the churning storm clouds that regularly delivered some very heavy rain, against a very humid backdrop.


For their special day I supplied:


  • mood lighting for the top table

  • wireless mics for speeches

  • music for the drinks reception, wedding breakfast and evening reception - see full playlist below


The full playlist for the day was as follows:
