Well…who doesn’t love a good wedding?! I was honoured to be booked to DJ a wedding reception for an absolutely fantastic couple in a lovely venue on 5th September. Whenever I do a disco, I always strive to make it as good as possible so that the people present have a great time but with weddings, I want to make it as special as possible for the happy couple and their guests and to give them all an evening to remember for the right reasons!
The wedding reception was a lovely affair with so much warmth present among the guests. Weddings are sometimes slightly odd in that sometimes the only thing people have in common are the couple getting married but it’s humbling to see people introduce themselves to one another and to have a great evening, plus the alcohol helps! I get an interesting insight plus I also see the work that goes on before people arrive…it was a feat of teamwork to convert a room into a beautiful place for a wedding reception and I must say that the staff were superb and also looked after me with offers to plate me up some food and get me a drink. I declined the food on the basis I wear a white shirt and didn’t want to risk it which I’ve mentioned before but the wedding cake was delicious. The weather was lovely, the location was near the sea and the locals I met were all friendly, once I’d reassured them that it wouldn’t be too loud…well, maybe I stretched that a little bit.
The evening was amazing, everyone danced and I got a standing ovation at the end along with a chant for ‘one more song’ which turned into about 3 or 4 more songs, not that I minded, and I received lovely feedback from the bride which was “Fantastic night and the best disco ever. Everybody thought it was superb x” Based on the number of people who asked me for a business card, I must have been doing something right.
I’ll conclude this blog entry with this – as is rightfully the case with weddings, it’s about the bride and groom and the groom did a fantastic speech with the comment “love isn’t who you can live with, it’s who you can’t live without”
