30th June ’12 – Hired as wedding DJ for Mr & Mrs Sutcliff on their big day at Gibbon Bridge Hotel, Chipping on the outskirts of Preston. First time I’ve played at Gibbon Bridge, lovely little wedding venue with beautiful grounds. They booked me to DJ from 7.30pm till midnight. As I was getting set up, I could see & hear the wedding party having some group photos in the bandstand area which looked great!
Kirsty the bride was in charge of music, in fairness, she didn’t give me much in terms of a play list. Just mostly modern/current chart music, a bit of Motown like Lionel Richie, some Michael Jackson, turned out ‘Man in the Mirror’ was an old favourite of hers. She also mentioned Nicki Minaj ‘Starships’ which was the hen party tune & had to be played a couple of times! They’d also discovered a track during the hen party called ‘Wifey for Lifey’ which I’d never heard of, but managed to find a copy, much to the hens delight!
Their first dance was performed to the Jackson 5 version of ‘I’ll be there’. Then it was straight on with the disco, wild party night! The bride even managed to do the catapillar in her wedding dress during my cheesy 90’s dance requests! (pretty impressive!) & with a little help, they also managed a ‘dirty dancing’ lift! Big finish to ‘Never Forget’ from Take That. All the best to Mr & Mrs Sutcliff!
So, if your wedding party is at Gibbon Bridge & you are looking for an experienced wedding DJ for your evening reception, email your enquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org As a guide, expect to pay £250 to cover playing times of 7.30pm till midnight. (£30 per hour for any additional time, or part thereof).
