The Perfect Wedding
If you talk to a set of newlyweds, they will often tell you that the most stressful part of their wedding wasn’t actually the ceremony but more the celebrations afterwards. They get so focused on trying to make sure everyone else is having a good time that they forget to have fun themselves.
The format of a wedding celebration is pretty much the same from one to the next but there is always one fundamental difference … You! Your uniqueness and character should shine through – after all, it’s your day. Let us paint you a picture of how we think your wedding celebration should be.
Let’s start with your venue. The venue team have done an amazing job of making the room look wonderful. The tables are laid perfectly and there is a colour theme running through the napkins to the chair upholstery. To complement this colour theme your DJ team have placed special mood lights along the walls and behind the top table. They bathe the room in a subtle light that really helps to make the scene look and feel magical.
Some gentle background music is played while you and your guests enjoy your wedding breakfast. During dessert, your DJ has been visiting each table to introduce himself and to take some musical requests.
Let’s move now to the evening celebrations.
In the weeks and months leading up to your wedding, your DJ team have taken the time to get to know you and your partner. They have a good understanding of your requirements for the evening in respect of music, timings (buffet, cake cutting, bouquet toss etc.) and have provided a plan which takes all of this into account.
As the celebration starts, the evening guests begin to arrive. Your DJ understands that this is a time when people will be greeting each other so he keeps the sound levels reasonably low to enable people to talk without having to shout. The single ladies are encouraged to take part in the bouquet toss and perhaps the cake cutting ceremony takes place.
Now we have our first dance but the bride has requested a father/daughter dance first. She wants to use this to thank her father for everything she has done for him. By the end of the first verse, there is barely a dry eye in the room. Next, the bride and groom have their first dance as a married couple. They have decided that they want to share this with their friends so after the first verse and chorus their DJ invites all the other couples to join them.
Now it’s time to really get the party started. While speaking to the guests during dessert, your DJ picked up several requests for some rock and roll music.
Happy to oblige, the DJ plays a medley of well-known rock and roll tunes and the dance floor begins to fill. The mood lights that were placed around the room now form part of the professional light show as they flash and change colour in time with the music.
The DJ continues to work with you and your guests to ensure that everyone has a great time. He makes sure that there is something for everyone and includes the songs that you selected during your meetings with him. Where possible he plays the tracks requested by your guests on the day.
As the evening draws to a close there is time for a couple of romantic songs followed by a finale. Your guests form an arch as you and your partner pass under it on the way out of the venue. There is time for one more track to make sure that the evening ends on a high and then it is time for the DJ to thank everyone for a fantastic evening before saying goodnight.
We make a point of meeting the venue's events team to understand the planned room layout for your wedding together with any special requirements they might have for us.
We are happy to meet you at the venue to make sure you are fully engaged in planning your event.
Nowadays, most venues require that a risk assessment be carried out for each event. We are happy to assist with this and will provide copies of our Public Liability Insurance and PAT Certificates on request.
