Winter wedding at Northcote House

I played at a lovely wedding in Northcote House, Ascot a few weeks ago. It was a quite an older crowd and the first 3 hours they had a Scalextric Car track set up in one room and a buffet in another, so I was requested to play background music after the initial cake cutting and first dance.

Choosing music to play at your wedding reception

  Probably the first decision is not surprisingly, what will be your first dance if you having one. For some couples, the choice is obvious, for others its harder.

After initially saying tell them to hire me, I started to think about a more constructive answer. The wedding reception is, in most instances, the longest part of the celebrations. So choosing the wrong DJ can have a big impact on the day. So I would suggest to an enquiring couple that the first
