On Saturday 9th April last year, we had the very great pleasure of providing the evening’s entertainment at the wedding of Laura Edwards and Sean Philip. The couple, based in London, chose the beautiful Highdown Vineyard in Worthing as the venue for the wedding and reception on what was turned out to be a lovely spring day.
Our journey with Laura and Sean began almost a year beforehand, on 29th May 2015 to be precise, when an enquiry was submitted to us by the then bride-to-be about our services and availability for the wedding. Laura had spotted an ad for Stick It On while browsing the popular wedding website Confetti, and after swapping a few introductory emails and explaining the concept in a bit more detail, we had ourselves the booking.
Over the coming months we kept in regular contact with Laura, firstly after we built a dedicated mini website featuring a photo of the happy couple via which their guests could submit a three song mini-DJ set to be played during the wedding party. Once that was up and running we provided weekly updates as to how the DJ set submissions were coming along, and once the deadline for submissions had passed we handed over the list to Laura and Sean to confirm all the song choices and guest DJs.
After contacting all of the guest DJs via email and text messages in advance to fill them in on what they needed to do on the night, we travelled to Highdown Vineyard on the afternoon of the wedding, set up the equipment and kicked things off with a warm up set of great party tunes. With the guests in the mood for some serious dancefloor action, 17 of the happy couple’s friends and family took to the decks over the following three hours and kept the party rocking until the end of the night.
Laura and Sean’s wedding photographer, Roberta Matis, took some great photos of the party (one of which now features on our new weddings microsites), which you can see here. Our involvement with Laura and Sean’s wedding didn’t end on the day, though, as we always follow up any event by providing the client’s with commemorative CDs or digital playlists of the music played by guest DJs. We also contact all the DJs one last time to thank them for being a part of a Stick It On party and to gauge their thoughts on the experience. As many of our guest DJs go on to book us for weddings, private parties or corporate events, it’s fair to say we regularly go down a storm.
