Sandburn Hall Wedding Singer and DJ – Richard and Helina’s Big Day!
What a long Sandurn Hall wedding singer and DJ service this one was! For me anyway. That’s not to say that I didn’t enjoy the day – it’s just that it began early and finished late!
Richard first contacted me in June of last year with his enquiry regarding the ‘All Day Wedding Package’ I provide. After a few emails between us they booked me to play during their ceremony (as the guests were seated, as the bride walked down the aisle, as the register was signed and as the wedding party left the ceremony), during their drinks reception, during their wedding breakfast and then to provide a pro DJ service to finish the evening.
I had to be up bright and early to pack my equipment into my mini-van, to make any last minute preparations and to make sure I arrived at the lovely Sandburn Hall in York with lots of time to spare. There’s too much at stake for me to roll up with just enough time to spare. It only takes an hour or so hold up in traffic and then you have a disaster. By always leaving myself the extra two hours I give myself every chance I can to make sure everything is to plan. That’s the most important thing of all to me.
Richard and Helina had chosen some favourite songs of theirs for the ceremony to be played instrumentally on guitar. Amongst those was Coldplay’s Yellow, to be played as the beautiful bride walked down the aisle. I really enjoyed learning and arranging this one. I decided to play it in a very sensitive manner to reflect the occasion and at the tempo of the bridal march to help make the pace feel natural for the oncoming bride! It doesn’t sound a lot, but little musical choices like this are the difference between someone just playing this in a pub and a professional wedding musician tailoring a customer’s choices to suit and blend with the changing moods of a day long wedding.
The weather held out for them and they were able to have their ceremony in the gardens (pictured).
The evening reception was a lot of fun too! The tracks the happy couple had chosen went down very well with the crowd and they were up dancing most of the night. I also got to enjoy, as always, the sight I see more than anything in this world – a room full of women doing the Macarena. If I’m not watching TV – I’m watching that! 🙂
That’s the lot in life of the average wedding singer/DJ – 15 hour days and the Macarena. Lovely stuff. I really do love this job!
