Ant & Lauren’s North Lakes Hotel wedding.
Wedding DJ Hire | #GMDifference
Ant & Lauren chose me as the DJ for their wedding reception at North Lakes Hotel on 16th of November 2019. In writing this blog, I had a look back through some of my notes from my first meeting with Ant. There was one thing in particular that stood out to me, that I think really encapsulates the feeling at the centre of their wedding celebration.
“We just want to make sure everyone feels included” And that… is the secret sauce for a fun wedding that is loved by all.
They entered the room to one of my all time favourite tracks – “Jump Around” by House of Pain, which kickstarted the energy in the room immediately.
I didn’t get the opportunity to meet Lauren until the wedding day, but I soon discovered that she was an unstoppable dancer. She personally made sure that the dance floor was never left vacant, pulling friends and family up to share a dance with her right through until the end of the reception.
My favourite memory of the night was finishing with “New York, New York” by Frank Sinatra, with the dance floor full of friends and family, arm in arm, doing the can-can and singing at the top of their lungs. A perfect way to tie a bow on their wedding reception.
Thanks Ant & Lauren for choosing me to design the soundtrack for the start of your married life together ~ Ben Shipway.
