Sunshine Coast celebrant Suzanne Riley said it best during her light-hearted ceremony at Novotel Twin Waters Resort: “Caitlin & Jake are married at heart already” and it was obvious to all in attendance, including me (Ben Shipway).
Caitlin & Jake are one of those couples that I clicked with instantly. Their love for each other is infectious and recognisably genuine. Our meetings were full of humour and the more that we talked the more excited we all became about designing the greatest celebration of their life.
They wanted a high energy reception featuring classic dance floor fillers, Hip Hop & RnB bangers to carry them and their guests in to the night. But we will get to the music later.
Caitlin & Jake booked our Experience DJ package which let them select their DJ (me!) and we had two face to face planning meetings. A planning meeting involves much more than taking notes to ensure that I play the right song at the right time. We talked about their friends and family and designed moments and memories to ensure a meaningful and relevant celebration. By the time my brides and grooms walk in to their reception I need to know more than what they want. I need to know WHO THEY ARE so that every decision that I make is the right decision for them.
Caitlin & Jake made an entrance that I will never forget.
Caitlin LOVES Jason Derulo, they selected “Kiss The Sky” as their entrance song; upbeat, and fun. The energy in the room was electric as the MC announced the entrance of the bridal party. As Caitlin & Jake made their entrance their guests lifted the roof, unquestionably one of the most dynamic entrances I have been a part of.
Once the dance floor opened the flavour of the night was RnB and Hip Hop. Artists like Kid Ink, Omarion and Jeremih brought the younger crowd to the floor. Any wedding needs some variation to keep their dance floor moving and Caitlin & Jake included some sing along classics including Jessie’s Girl (Rick Springfield) & Follow Me (Uncle Kracker) to mix things up and they were warmly received by all ages.
Even at the conclusion of the reception guests moved on to a different bar within the resort to keep the party going.

Caitlin ♥ Jake | Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort Wedding
“G&M DJ’s did such an amazing job at our wedding and went far beyond our expectations. The vibe of the room the whole night was exactly what we wanted and couldn’t have imagined it any other way. Ben you went over and above when it came to what we wanted and checked on us the whole night to make sure we were happy, which of course we were! We partied long into the night and all of our guests have commented on how incredible the night was and the vibe of the dance floor. Fun, exciting and never boring is what we wanted and it’s exactly what we got. Perfect night with a perfect DJ! We absolutely had the best night ever and will never forget what you did for us 🙂 absolutely perfect!!!!! Can’t thank you enough :)”Cailin & Jake | Novotel Sunshine Coast Resort
