At Sensation we LOVE performing at weddings at Smart Artz Gallery in South Melbourne. If modern and unique is what you are looking for, whether that be with a Wedding Band or Wedding DJ, the ladies at Smart Artz will absolutely MAKE your event.
Unusually most of my dealings with Cailtin and Peter were over the telephone, and they both were incredibly switched-on and organised when it came to the details for their special day, and especially for their music!
Caitlin loves 80s and 90s DJ music - all the classic songs of course, but one request brought me right back down memory lane - "Got my mind set on you" by George Harrison. I love that song and had not heard it in years!
Caitlin and Peter were also very keen on moving away from "tradition" by not having certain music or formalities for the event. They wanted a delicious sit down meal with their friends, with funky background music, and then just to kick up their heels later on in the night and have a dance.
When our bride entered the room, she absolutely glowed. People gravitated towards her, and she looked absolutely beautiful. There was a wonderful surprize after the couple entered the room as well - Caitlin changed out of her full dress, into a beautiful tutu like skirt that looked very stylish, and enabled her to kick up her heels and have a great time.
Usually Smart Artz is booked as a cocktail venue, but Caitlin and Peter had organised a sit down dinner on long banquet tables, and as you can see in the photography, the room looked wonderful. There was also a photo booth available for bridal "happy snaps" and the guests took advantage of this throughout the night.
Murray, the Wedding MC was a fabulous edition to the wedding reception. He is obviously a family friend, but also clearly an experienced and professional Wedding MC. He knew when to be serious, but also to add humour in at appropriate times to help the guests relax.
One of my passions as a Wedding DJ is ensuring that once the bridal dance is over, that the party gets started and all guests are drawn onto the dance floor for the night. Peter and Caitlin decided not to have a traditional bridal dance, instead they invited all their family and friends onto the dance floor to join them for a group bridal dance to "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon Five. This really got the part started, and I then kicked off the DJ Music with great party songs from the 80s and 90s, and I threw in a few current songs for good measure.
Popular songs for the night included "I wanna dance with somebody" by Whitney Houston, "Footloose" by Kenny Loggins and "Jump Around" by House of Pain.
The party continued on the dance floor right until the end of the event - and the room had a lovely, relaxed party vibe to it the whole way through.
Congratulations to Peter and Caitlin - a gorgeous couple, who I wish all the best for in the future.
