Weather it was the song that played on your first date or the background music to your first kiss, your first dance song should capture the spirit of how you feel about each other, and fit your personal expression.

If you or your partner are having trouble deciding what song you should play as your first dance you can always save another favourite for the last song of the evening!

As wedding season is fast approaching, we are looking forward to DJing at many venues in and around our base in Marlow including Lillibrooke Manor, Waddesdon Manor, Notley Abbey, Manor Farm Barn and Fredricks Hotel in Maidenhead. If you are having trouble with your first dance or any other aspect of your wedding music please get in touch. I am only too happy to help!
