I was back at Melville Castle this weekend to be the wedding dj for the October wedding of Lisa & Tim. Surprisingly sunny and warm, the weather was as good as it gets in October near Edinburgh.
It was my pleasure to play at the wedding of a wonderful couple and their amazing guests.
I arrived in the early afternoon to set up the equipment out of sight before the guests arrived. Nice easy access and helpful staff are always a plus for me. The stage at the far left of the marquee is the ideal area for a DJ to set up. We can keep the noise to the dance floor and still allow the guests to chat comfortably at their tables.
The choice of music for the first dance of the night, by the bride and groom, was John Legend – All Of Me.
Lisa and Tim took their place on the dancefloor circled by their friends and family giving them a rapturous welcome. It was easy to see that everyone was close.
Wedding Shoe Game
Before the party gets started we have a quick wedding shoe game. Many of the guests had travelled a long way to attend the wedding so a quick game was organised to help break the ice.
This time it was with a wee bit of a difference, the questions were set by the guests. Everything started off fine but then came the risqué questions. Lisa and Tim are a great couple with a great sense of humour so they played right along, shocking some of their families but all in good fun!
I was armed with a playlist provided by Lisa & Tim via their planner page on my website. A good eclectic selection of music including some Italian songs. Although Lisa is a London resident, her family originated in Italy and many family members travelled to see Lisa married.
Other music included Spanish, Hip Hop, R&B, Dance and good old disco.
It is always good to have an energetic audience, especially on a Sunday night, that really wants to party. Party they did from the very start right up until the last song. There were a number of requests to keep the music going but the time had come to end the night.
An amazing night for a special couple and their guests.
