Real Weddings – Phoebe & Arni

I had the honour of being the DJ at Phoebe and Arni's recent wedding. In this blog post, I look at all the cool songs I played to get people dancing!

This gorgeous couple got married at Buxted Park Hotel last night and it was one of those gigs where the crowd were really appreciative of everything that was played.

The Bride & Groom only gave me one definitely-play track and that was their first dance – John Legend’s All Of Me.  After that, I was free to do my own thing but Phoebe did let me know she liked Beyonce so it was a given there would be some tracks from her and Destiny’s Child throughout the night.

I covered so many different genres; chart, Motown, R&B, house, disco, reggaeton, latino, as well as a load of the usual party classics!

Here’s the playlist…
