Thank You 2017, you’ve been amazing!
OK, maybe it’s a bit silly to say thank you 2017 but it has been a fun year and looking back I’m happy with how things worked out. I was thrilled to be ask to play for two of my previous brides as they celebrated “significant” birthdays, perform at a couple of great engagement parties and, of course, play a part in many wonderful WOW weddings! I also got to work at many of my favourite venues alongside many of my favourite suppliers. I continued with study, training and even did a couple of events as a speaker to help other DJ’s. It was a year full of “stuff” and another year where many unexpected changes and opportunities have brought me to a new place and a new plan for 2018… but more about that next year 😉
The year started with lots of wedding fairs/fayres/showcases and WOW events and a couple of birthday parties. There was Maxine’s 40th, then I was back at my Christmas venue The Port House for Sam’s 30th party.
In the Spring I was delighted to DJ for Vickie and Gemma’s engagement party and am looking forward to their wedding in 2018. It was great to see Karen and Ian, their friends and family again (I did their wedding in 2013) as Karen celebrated her 60th. Then it was Charlotte and Sam’s wedding and reception at The Marwell Hotel. They wrote a wonderful testimonial for me CLICK HERE.
In June there was Hannah and Alex’s stunning reception at Norton Park following their church wedding.
July started with Bex and Alex’s beautiful wedding with a church ceremony followed by a marquee reception set in the beautiful English countryside. They did another great testimonial for me CLICK HERE.
Highlights in August included Katherine and Sinbad’s wedding at The Tithe Barn CLICK HERE to see my blog post and their feedback It was also really great to be invited to the first showcase at Manor Court Farm – this venue is AMAZING! For more information PLEASE CLICK HERE Angie and Dean finally tied the knot at The Master Builders and Lucas celebrated his 21st with a huge black tie diner and dance in a marquee party at home.
September highlights included Amina and Tarik at the magnificent Tylney Hall Then there was another engagement party, this time for Libby and Glenn – I wonder if I’ll get there wedding?
October saw two brilliant weddings. Rachael and Remi at Woodland’s Lodge. It was another day full of different World traditions. The second was very special as I’ve known the bridegroom Matt literally all his life! Anna and Matt were married at their church in Southampton and then had their reception at East Horton
I decided not to “do” Christmas parties this year, instead Ce and I took another trip to Fuerteventura – and we are already planning our next visit there.
So many great parties, lovely people and amazing love stories … Thank You 2017 and bring on the New Year!
