I was hired at the very last minute by Julie and Alex after their prearranged Manchester wedding entertainer and DJ had to cancel on them at short notice! They were understandably quite stressed! Enter ‘Matthew Stephens – Acoustic Wedding Singer and DJ!‘ I swooped in like a Castlefield Rooms wedding superhero and saved the day!
Their Wedding Music
After a phone call I was able to put their minds firmly at rest – I already knew their chosen first dance (Use Somebody by Kings Of Leon), so that was a big tick that helped to relax them. Our musical tastes were very inline too. So, I knew a lot of their chosen music for the live sets later on.
They had hired me to provide the evening wedding entertainment. I feel safe saying the evening was a great success! We had some beautiful speeches early on and some great wedding music provided by the Northern String Quartet. Then we had some acoustic background music while people chatted after their wedding breakfast. We then we went into the communal first dance that Alex and Julie had requested. After some corralling I was able to get everyone onto the dance floor to enjoy the first dance with the newlyweds and everyone had a nice slow dance with the bride and groom.

To finish we had some live party sets and a very bouncing disco set – a real knees up! The video will explain it all better than I can. So please feel free to watch the wedding music highlights video below to see the party in full swing!
