On Thursday 28th June I was at Down Hall Country House Hotel in Hertfordshire for Sam and Steve's Wedding reception. This was my first time at Down Hall and was pleasantly surprised on the size and look of the place.

Sam and Steve had requested that I played music throughout their Wedding breakfast so I needed to be at the venue and setup by 2pm. I arrived just before 1pm and spoke to the manager and toastmaster to discuss the running of the day. After that had been discussed it was time for me to setup.

By 2 o'clock I was setup and ready to go with a bit of background music waiting for the guests to start making their way through in to the room. At around 3pm Toastmaster Andrew announced the new Mr and Mrs Bradly in to the room for the Wedding breakfast.

After the Wedding breakfast, the room was turned around and the dance-floor had been uncovered. We were now ready for the cutting of the cake and the first dance. As Sam and Steve were well in to their old school dance music, they had chosen DJ Sammy - Heaven (Candlelight Slow Remix) as their first dance.

I was looking forward to kicking off the party after the first dance as they had been a pretty lively bunch all afternoon and I knew that it was going to be a good night. It didn't take long for most of the guests to take to the dance-floor and the requests to start coming in.

Requests made:

  • Prodigy - Out Of Space
  • Maroon 5 - Moves Like Jagger
  • Stevie Wonder - Signed, Sealed, Delivered
  • Guns N' Roses - Sweet Child O' Mine
  • Madness - It Must Be Love
  • Baby D - Let Me Be Your Fantasy
  • House of Pain - Jump Around
  • + Many more!

Just a few of the highlights from the evening.
