Great Celebration at The Rosie

May 27, 2019

Once again another fantastic wedding celebration at The Rosendale, Dulwich, this time for the lovely Ben and Jenny.  With good communication from the first contact I had every expectation that it would be a big night; I was not disappointed.    I was well armed with information on special tracks to be played (both for Ben and Jenny, but also their guests) and equally ones to avoid.   This is so important, especially when meaningful songs might never be otherwise played because they are very niche - see the full playlist below.

 

The vibe was great from the start but the event was taken to another level by the involvement of the bride's uncle playing keyboard, together with the special accompaniment of his sister for an extra special song; a very emotional moment.  I was delighted to link all the sound together via my mixer and sound system - see the pic below.
