Saturday’s Wedding

First kiss as a married couple

First kiss as a married couple

Last Saturday’s wedding of Jen and Olly at the excellent Beaulieu Hotel was full of very special moments.

I was delighted to provide services throughout the day, from Ceremony music through to the last dance.

Jen had picked a beautiful song by Linda Ronstadt and Aaron Neville called “All My Life” for her entrance. The Bridal party entered to an instrumental version and then I faded over to the original vocal version for her entrance with her Dad, they arrived at the front at the end of the first chorus – it was perfect.

Happy Anniversary Jen & Martin

I’ve got so many happy memories of Jen and Martin’s beautiful wedding at Marwell. 

It’s been great to keep up with them both on FaceBook as friends and I’m looking forward to hearing some more great news from them soon 😉

Happy Anniversary Mr Mrs Gould 

Karen & Ian ~ Avington Park ~ March 2014

I first met Karen back in January 2013 when she was a guest at a wedding I played at. She got in touch a few months later and I was soon booked up for what I always knew was going to be a brilliant wedding. Everything about Karen and Ian’s big day was carefully planned with amazing details throughout.

I really believe that great ceremony music sets the tone for a great wedding and this wedding proved this and then some! The bridesmaids entered to a piano version of Avicii’s “You Make Me” which I then mixed into the original version as Karen entered escorted by her son Lewis. During the signing of the register I played a mix I’d pre-made of The Red Hot Chili Pipers playing Aviici’s “Wake Me Up” and C + C Music Factory’s “Gonna Make You Sweat (Everybody Dance Now)” as performed at Radio One’s Big Weekend. For their recessional Karen and Ian had a section from Clean Bandit’s “Rather Be” ~ it was brilliant and really set the tone for a brilliant celebration.

I was also able to introduce Karen and Ian to John from Vision Productions who produced this video of their amazing day …

Karen and Ian’s wedding was also featured in a recent edition of Just Wedding’s magazine

Saturday Night …

While I was busy at Lesley and Sam’s wedding on Friday afternoon I got a message from a gentleman who needed a DJ for a private on Saturday. When I had a moment I called him back and we had a quick chat, I took his booking and 24 hours later I was setting up to play at his house. It was a lovely summer’s evening with the guests enjoying fabulous food and drink in the gardens before coming back into the house for a dance in the music room.

If you need a DJ at short notice I’ll do everything I can to help – If I can’t do it I probably know someone who can!
