What a fantastic night for a super couple and I love it when a plan comes together.
We had an earlier planning meeting to discuss John and Kathryn's requirements. I had already provided them with two CD's containing edited versions of the music to be used for their ceremony.
I was booked from 6pm and in order to keep any disruption to the guests and celebration to a minimum I decided to set up earlier that day.
As everything was set I was happy to provide John and Kathryn with the use of my radio mics for their speeches and playout system for background music via my ipad. I even provided an instructional video so that the music could be set to play and adjusted to the right volume when they arrived.
During the evening the plan and timings of the cake cutting, first dance and surprise father daughter dance were adjusted to take account of changing circumstances, taking time to ensure that the Bride and Groom were happy with everything.
Guests were provided with "Text the DJ" slips which worked a treat and saved the guests from clambering onto the stage.
A comedy moment came from the Photobooth whose touch sensitive screen was being set off by the booming bass from my subs, obligingly I turned the bass down a little and the photobooth owner did running beer mat repair to reduce the "rattle".
A good mix of music was provided with some of the younger guests getting their own way with some of the music played earlier in the evening. We had the party hits, music from the charts, EDM, Dance Classics, Rock, Alternative and a special UB40 request "I can't help falling in Love" with the accompaniment of a relative who I'd let MC over a couple of the dance tracks much to the amusement of the guests.
A great night all round and great feedback from one happy Bride.
Amazing DJ would recommend to anyone! Ian is fantastic and went out of his way to help us with other aspects of our wedding too! Thank you! X - Kathryn Tweddle
