Sam & Ryan’s Spicers Hidden Vale Wedding

Brisbane Wedding DJ Hire | #GMDifference

It is always exciting to get to DJ for your friend’s wedding. Sam works in the wedding industry and it is an honour when someone “in the know” chooses you to ensure they get the amazing party they had always dreamed of. With some prior experience DJing for Sam’s social circle I knew this was the kind of crowd who would have to be dragged out kicking and screaming after the final song.

Sam & Ryan decided to tie the knot at Spicers Hidden Vale, with their fur baby Reuben accompanying them for the beautiful outdoor ceremony. The reception happened outside the Laidley Room, offering beautiful views of the country sunset.

Guests were then asked to make their way down to the barn where a custom made neon sign lit the dance floor in pink for Sam & Ryan’s first dance to “I’m With You” by Vance Joy.

I had a few meetings with Sam & Ryan to chat about what they wanted out of their wedding entertainment. They were in agreement that they just wanted their guests to be catered to and for the dance floor to be full all night long.

Watch the recap video below.

The playlist that Sam & Ryan put together combined classic rock hits such as “Cheap Wine” by Cold Chisel, “Eagle Rock” by Daddy Cool and “You Shook Me All Night Long” by ACDC with disco and pop floor fillers focused on the 70s, 80s and 2000s including “September” by Earth, Wind & Fire, “Don’t Stop ‘til You Get Enough” by Michael Jackson and “Hey Ya” by Outkast.

I sometimes like to rank the energy of a wedding by how many glasses were broken on the dance floor, and Sam & Ryan’s guests ended the night with a respectable 3 and a half (one dropped but remained in tact).

Guests were excited to make requests and dance the night away right through until midnight, when the venue had to close down and guests made their way over to sit by a bonfire before heading to bed.

Sam & Ryan planned an incredible wedding and it was an honour to bring the music for their special day. Thanks for choosing me to be a part of it.

Feedback from Sam & Ryan.

“We cannot recommend G&M highly enough!

The night went so smoothly thanks to Ben (our DJ), but also I felt really important and well looked after during the entire planning process. They’d keep checking in with me to see how I was going during the process, as well as called me a few days before the wedding just to go over everything once more.

Our guests were on the dance floor all night too which I think is a great indicator of a fantastic night! Ben even created a video of our guests during the party/dancing time (just because he’s AMAZING!)

Thank you so much G&M for making my wedding a dream come true.”
