I’m very fortunate to spend a lot of time with beautiful people on their Big Day. Kaley and Dennis were not only beautiful people to photograph today but they were so genuine, grateful, decent and supreme examples that having good parents creates good parents. The whole day was bliss. There was no panic and no fuss, it was ‘simply’ 2 people clearly madly in love coming together to do what couldn’t be more natural ! There was just smile after smile, the odd tear, friends giving a million hugs, parents looking on (justifiably) with pride and a real sense that their love is a very modern day love story with a classic feel too. A sign of just how decent people they are came when Kaley made a point of standing up during the speeches to make ONE thank you, to Jo Newell. She then asked Jo to come down and presented her with a bunch of flowers for all the care and listening to them so that on the day the wedding was everything Kaley had perhaps dreamed of as a little girl. Jo looked after every aspect of the day to ensure it ran smoother than silk could ever hope to be ! Andy made sure everyone (including Daniel the toastmaster and I) received their unbelievably delicious meals on time and perfectly cooked. Its a joy to watch such a finely tuned ‘machine’ doing its thing but rather than it feel like a computer controlled technical supercar it felt more like a purring V8 !!! All in all, Kaley and Dennis and Essendon Country Club made sure my count of fabulous 2015 weddings had another addition !

5 Reasons Why Picking the Right DJ is a Most Important Aspect of Your Wedding Day
1. To Entertain your Guests
Here’s an interesting fact for you. 81% of guests say the thing they remember most about a wedding is the entertainment. With that in mind, it goes without saying that picking the right DJ is imperative to the success of your wedding. If your wedding cake didn’t arrive, if your car broke down or if your florist got your order wrong, none of it would have an impact on your guests’ enjoyment. But if you chose the wrong DJ and your evening reception was a flop, you can guarantee it’d be not only ‘noticed’ but remembered and talked about for a very long time to come.
2. To Make your Announcements Special
Just because someone is a DJ, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they have any microphone skills. Professional Wedding DJs often have extensive training to ensure they deliver the best speeches and announcements and make every bride and groom feel like the stars of the day (which, of course, they are). A mumbled introduction for your first dance, or a half-hearted attempt at waving you off at the end of the night just isn’t good enough. Some professional DJs specialise in ‘Grand Entrances’, giving brides and grooms the red-carpet treatment they deserve. Some are even able to work with you on choreographed dances and special surprises throughout the reception. Hiring a confident and professional DJ is imperative if you’re looking to have the wedding of your dreams.
3. To Play the Right Music
Some so-called ‘professional’ DJs will arrive at your reception with pre-recorded music, making it impossible for them to accept song requests. But it’s your special day, and as such, you should be able to have the music that you love. As well as taking song requests, some professional DJs allow you to create an online playlist prior to your wedding where you can choose all of your favourites (as well as all the songs you don’t want to be played). The last thing you want is a DJ who is only interested in playing his own choices … someone who is not at all concerned about the enjoyment of your guests or getting the dance floor full.
4. To Ensure Quality Equipment
A professional Wedding DJ will have a high quality sound system and state-of-the-art lighting which is both stylish and modern. Equally as important, he’ll have a back up in the event that something goes wrong. If you’ve spent thousands of pounds on creating the right look and ambience for your wedding day, you don’t want it to be ruined by a DJ with shoddy, unreliable and out-dated equipment.
5. To Give you the Wedding of your Dreams
If you want your evening reception and your entertainment to be professional and personalised, and you want all of your guests to have a fantastic time, you really can’t afford to scrimp on your Wedding DJ. Do your homework, ask the right questions and check every DJs credentials before booking. This is your special day and you only have one chance to get it right.
