I must admit that I did enjoy this one. I met up with Tamara and Martin about a month before their big day and I walked away knowing that I will be under the microscope, as Martin used to be a DJ himself. Just as well that I always bring my A-game to each and every event and performing as a Professional Wedding DJ at Hampton Manor is always a storming night!
Hampton Manor’s glass ceilings, light stone walls and contemporary decor make the venue a dream to light up with my computer-controlled lighting, and the right sound system can turn this beautiful venue into an amazing place to party.
Tamara & Martin had lots organised for the evening to make sure that there was plenty of variety for their guests. The night kicked off with Georgia Thursting, a stunning singer who performed soulful interpretations of pretty much any genre you can think of and Georgia did a great job of building the atmosphere. Guests were singing along, and I knew that this gig was going to be a good’un! It’s often the people that make the difference and at Tamara & Martin’s wedding, that was definitely the case.
After the first dance and the cutting of the cake, my job was to keep the feel goods going until Solid Soul took centre stage to perform an hour of excellent music, with the mother of the bride joining in with the performance (turns out the bride’s mother used to perform with Solid Soul many moons ago. I’ll tell you what, they didn’t miss a beat!).
Fireworks at 10pm followed the band and from that point, my role was simple – Ibiza Classics! Essentially my job was to play some fine House tunes, Balearic anthems and some 90s bangers. As you can imagine, I didn’t protest too much at that brief!
Tamara, Martin and Co. certainly know how to party, and I was glad that I had my camera with me to capture some of the moments from the night. I didn’t get a chance to take too many pictures though – I was too busy having fun!
At the end of the night, I asked Martin whether I had passed the ‘Fellow DJ Test’. His answer was a resounding yes!
