The Happy Couple
This happy couple from Lewes hired our Sussex wedding DJ to provide the right music for their wedding reception. Their chosen venue was the lovely Fabrica Gallery in Brighton, Sussex.
Sam and Soraya chose the evening only Sussex wedding DJ service along with an uplighting/mood lighting package. Uplighting/mood lighting in this venue is a must! This wedding venue is actually a former Holy Trinity Chapel that began life in 1817. The arcitechture of this venue remains faithful to the original, therefore has a tall roof and lovely balcony. When it comes to ambient lighting this gives you countless options for colour washing, and uplighting features.
The brides chosen colour for her wedding theme was an interesting mix of light purple and lime green!
The Wedding DJ arrived at 5pm, allowing him plenty of time to setup the equipment. Sam and Soraya’s wedding ceremony was held at Saint Peters church on the other side of Brighton. But they had their wedding reception and evening party at the lovley Fabrica Gallery.
As the wedding party and guests arrived the DJ played some chilled out modern Jazz and soulful house music which went down really well, then it was time for the wedding breakfast.
After the wedding breakfast, the dreaded speeches were delivered they only lasted 8 minutes in total, a breath of fresh air! The speeches were short but sweet! Just how most people like them!
The Evening Party
For the traditional first wedding dance the bride and groom chose the old classic soul song by Al Green, Let’s stay together. The second song chosen was the Temptations, My girl. this was for Soraya to dance with her father. The third song Sam and Soraya chose was the well known Olivia Newton John song “your the one that I want” They had a little dance routine all of their own to entertain their guests, once they had performed their dance routine for the first part of the song they encouraged all their friends and family on to the dancefloor.
Everyone pretty much stayed on the dance floor for the whole night! The DJ did have a request sheet from the bride and groom. This request sheet contained a large number of Spanish and Latino songs they wanted the DJ to play. He played them a little later in the evening, which worked out very well as everyone was in to the party and feeling less self conscious. The result being, everyone stayed on the dance floor for the Latino and Spanish set. Considering only 10 percent of the wedding party and guests were spanish, this was a great result!
