  1. A wedding DJ with in the Indoor Disco Shed at the Barbican Centre in London

    Leave a Comment

    I first met up with Francis and Claire a couple of months before their wedding. The Barbican was the obvious meeting place as that was going to be the stunning backdrop to their big day. I never knew such a place existed, but I found myself taking a stroll with them through the huge conservatory hidden away on the 3rd floor, talking through their plans and musical wishes surrounded by tropical plants, palm trees, exotic birds and a pool which contained the largest coy carp I had ever seen. A cross between Kew Gardens and Jurassic Park, all neatly tucked away within the brutalist concrete architecture that is the Barbican! The couple had opted for the Indoor Shed and it looked fantastic in the ajoining Garden Room where the tables had been laid out in anticipation of the guests arriving. With the stunning view of St Pauls cathedral out...

  2. Our Wedding DJs at Fulham Palace, London

    Leave a Comment

    Our last wedding DJ set of 2012 took place at the historic home of the Bishops of London, Fulham Palace. Unfortunately the Bishops weren’t at home at the time, presumably out doing some last minute Christmas shopping, which at least meant we had the place to ourselves! Anna & Charlie had heard of us through a friend, Laura, who Harry played for at Belchamp Hall in July, (though they’d already booked us by then) so they knew what to expect from Disco Wed. After a few unsuccessful attempts to meet Charlie and Anna at the venue, we settled for a drink in Hammersmith a couple of weeks before the wedding, where they gave me their cheesy (Anna’s words!) playlist and we worked out our plans for the day. Whilst not as large or grand as you might expect from the name, at least via the courtyard entrance, it’s an...

  3. London Canal Museum Disco Wed wedding DJ

    Leave a Comment

    I had a great time playing for John & Katie at the London Canal Museum in Kings Cross. Not knowing the venue, I popped in whilst in town a week or so before the big day. It’s a great place, spread across two floors and backing onto the Regent’s Canal. As I looked around, I actually jumped as a replica horse neighed just as I passed it! I’ve always been nervous around horses, even fake ones it seems! As a working museum, and open until 5pm I was intrigued as to how it would work as a wedding venue. But, whilst the guests enjoyed a champagne reception and the speeches downstairs, the staff set about clearing out the exhibits upstairs and setting up the tables for the meal and I set up our DJ only option at the same time. Despite not actually meeting we’d had a few phone...

  4. London’s Chigwell Hall Disco Wed Wedding DJ

    Leave a Comment

    I met Emily and her Mum at the Chigwell Hall wedding fayre in the spring, which took place in their enormous marquee outside the hall. After a good chat in which we explained our services, Emily left to have a look around the rest of the show, before returning a few minutes later and pretty much booked our wedding DJ only option there and then! She’d been considering booking a band to play during the afternoon so was particularly pleased to hear we offered to play music all day as part of the service! Emily and her partner David sent a brief playlist of tunes over before the wedding, which showed off their indie leanings – which I looked forward to playing, being something of an indie kid at heart myself – along with with some more crooner-y classics for the daytime. On the day itself, I arrived well...
