Real Weddings – Matt & Lucy at The George Vaults

A small family wedding in a stunning, 14th-century vault in Rochester, Kent - a town noted for its rich history and architecture.

My first wedding of 2023 was about as local as it gets, just 10 minutes from my house.

Most of the venues I work in tend to be at least an hour away so the short drive home was most welcome indeed, especially with the threat of an arctic blast and several feet of snow, or floods, depending on which news channel you choose to listen to.

It wasn’t a massive party, maybe 30 people or so and that suited the venue perfectly.  I still managed to squeeze the DJ equipment down there as well as my photo booth which was pretty cool considering there wasn’t a massive amount of room to play with.

I do actually prefer the smaller parties where everything occupies one single space, it works really well compared to a huge venue with loads of little tiny rooms for people to head off to and hide in.

Music-wise, Matt & Lucy gave me a list of genres they were happy for me to play together with a couple of specific songs they wanted to hear.  The most notable choice for me was the second dance selection, “Jaja Ding Dong” by Molly Sandén and Will Ferrell from the 2020 movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, a film I urge you to watch if you haven’t already!
