"Wasn't looking for love till I found you..."
It is always enjoyable to DJ for a couple who are unashamedly themselves and show their personalities in their wedding. There were numerous distinctive touches that Rebecca and Steve had made for their special day and these really personalised the occasion.
Steve found their idyllic wedding venue during one of his countryside motorbike rides. It certainly had an intimate and relaxed, country feel. Their ceremony was officiated by Steve's father before guests were treated to a catered Greek feast, with paired wine choices carefully selected by the newlyweds.
Rebecca and Steve trusted us with the music, with a general brief of keeping the mood fun and uplifting across musical genres and eras whilst avoiding any slow love songs. While guests dined, we spun some current favourite tunes including:
"Witchoo" by Durand Jones & the Indications
"Music Sounds Better With You" covered by Neil Frances (originally by Stardust)
"Don't Be Afraid" covered by East Coast Love Affair (originally by Sky's the Limit)
It is always satisfying to see guests enjoying songs that they may not have heard before. There's a lot of great music out there and we always appreciate the open-mindedness of couples and guests to hear some unfamiliar songs, mixed with their favourites. We think this adds some mood to meal times without the music being invasive or sounding like a generic radio playlist.
Following dinner, there was some solid early dancefloor energy before the speeches, specifically for Indeep's "Last Night a DJ Saved My Life" and disco-princess Grace Jones' "Pull Up to the Bumper". Rebecca and Steve's speeches were high-quality humour, particularly Rebecca's comment about 'swiping the wrong way on tinder'. We also enjoyed the competitive ribbing between Steve and his twin brother.
Following the speeches, the dance floor ramped up to classics from across the years, along with some poignant moments, such as Steve and his father dancing to Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man". Rebecca and Steve's bouquet and garter toss were a lot of fun too. It's always nice to see a couple enjoying themselves!
Thanks Rebecca and Steve for having us as your wedding DJs.
Rebecca said: "What a dynamic duo. Both Nick and Ben are professional with a lot of charisma. Our reception was exactly how we wanted it - with our personal touches, music choices and it flowed as they guided us all through the night. Thanks guys. I would highly recommend."
