Rob & Sarah's Wedding Reception at Griffin Inn, Swithland, Leicestershire

A few weeks ago I was the DJ and provided the sound and lighting (mobile disco) equipment for Rob and Sarah’s wedding at the Griffin Inn, Swithland in Leicestershire. It’s a rather nice Gastro-Pub in a very picturesque village so a great backdrop for all their photographs.

Because they were in the same room for both the early evening wedding breakfast and the evening reception I set everything up for them the day before so that I wouldn’t be a distraction setting everything up with guests in the room. They also wanted a microphone for speeches so that was also all set up and ready for them when they needed it.

The evening do kicked off around 8pm and Rob and Sarah were keen to get the first dance done, luckily their guest were more than happy to hit the dance floor straight away as well!

Music wise, they had given me quite a long list of music they’d like: some classics from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin that the whole family could get on the dance floor to, some newer party pop songs for their kids like One Direction and LMFAO, then mainly 90′s ‘madchester’, indie and dance music for the rest of the night.

Rob and Sarah said they were happy for me to pick and choose from it and select some tunes myself if I thought they’d go down well. It turned out the the dance music was what went down best with the crowd so I finished off the evening with some classic 90s house and dance classics from the likes of Moloko, Basement Jaxx, Stardust, Tori Amos, Faithless and Underworld. And of course the obligatory end of the night Oasis sing-a-long… (Only obligatory if you and your guests like 90s music and you’ve put Oasis on your request list!)

They were a fantastic crowd, and by the end of the night they were really in to it! Here’s a quick video:
