Wedding DJ at The Old Hall: Becky & Alex

Wedding receptions on a Sunday night don’t come much more awesome than Alex and Becky’s celebrations at The Old Hall last night.

Sunday night wedding receptions can instil a feeling of fear into even the most seasoned wedding DJ. Guests normally have to be back at work on the Monday morning, during term time the kids have to be in school the next day…..

Happily – this was one of those wedding receptions where none of that happened.

Another full dance floor at The Old Hall

Alex and Becky had initially provided the entire playlist for the evening, which really isn’t a problem….until you realise that if played end to end it would last for over 19 hours!

So, I got Alex to highlight the really important tracks from the list and used the rest to fill he gaps.

The dance floor was rarely empty!

The first dance (I’ve Had The Time of my Life from Dirty Dancing) was followed up by Nirvana’s Teen Spirit as a dedication to Alex’s nephew, and from there things just got better and better.

A real mix of new and old music, cheese, indie, Britpop, even a smidgeon of rock….it all worked.

Sadly, the midnight curfew at The Old Hall came around far too quickly on this one and it’s time to play the last song of the night. At Alex and Becky’s request, it was to be a repeat of the first dance and the remaining guests (around 50 of them) crowded onto the dance floor to form a circle of love (actually, it was more akin to the Hokey Cokey but so long as they were enjoying themselves…who am I to argue?).

And so, to the playlist for the evening

As already mentioned above, the majority of the music selections for the evening were provided by Becky & Alex, with just a few picked by the guests themselves.

My job was to put the right songs into the right order at the right time….and it worked.
