Sunday 7th August 2016 – Ireland wedding DJs for Chris & Lara

MINT DJ provided their Ireland wedding DJs on behalf of one event management. They provide wedding DJ entertainment in Cork, Kerry and Dublin. They provided their Ireland wedding DJs. Included in the GOLD package. Chris and Lara added an uplighting package, which helped to take this beautiful Irish venue from day to night.

Our Ireland wedding DJs left his home nice and early. This allowed up to 90 minutes travel time for a journey that should only take 59 minutes. However, it was a glorious sunny afternoon across the whole of Ireland, the roads were fairly congested. The DJ actually arrived at 6.35pm, thinking he was 5 minutes late. However when he went to unload and set up he was told that the wedding guests had only just finished their starters. Therefore they would not be ready for the DJ to set up for at least 90 minutes.

The uplighting/mood lighting package

The bride and groom booked the uplighting package on top of the standard wedding DJ package. Our Ireland wedding DJs had only 1 hour to set up everything including the uplighting. This was set to the colour jade, as requested by the bride. With limited power sockets available, and their locations not helpful meant our DJ had to think on his feet. So armed with various lengths of power cable and gaffer tape he set to work.

Our DJ installed the uplighting in just 20 minutes. This allowed him the remaining 40 minutes to set up the sound system and disco lighting. While our Ireland wedding DJs were setting up, the guests were still outside in the garden enjoying a lovely sunny evening in the Irish countryside. They were being entertained by the band that the bride and groom booked.

The bride and groom cut their wedding cake

The bride and groom, Chris and Lara, cut their wedding cake at 8.45pm to their chosen song “Alicia Keys – If I ain’t got you” Then immediately after they performed their first dance to “Elton John – Your Song” Here is their first dance as Mr & Mrs.

After the first dance they chose “Walk the moon – Shut up and dance”. This was aptly chosen by the bride and groom, and shut up and dance is what everybody did!! There were so many requests from the bride and groom and their guests. Therefore leaving very little time for our Ireland wedding DJs to include his own music choices in this DJ set.

The conclusion

It was an amazing night and the dance floor was rammed all night! Here’s a few video clips to show you how amazing this wedding was!

Our DJs loved this wedding! But all too sudden it was time for our Ireland wedding DJs to play the last song of the night at this Irish wedding. The bride and groom, Chris and Lara, chose “Take that – Never forget” as their final song.

At the end of the night

As our Ireland wedding DJs were packing away, the owners of this fine venue suggested he leave some business cards. They would like to recommend MINT DJ to future clients. They said he was far superior to the other DJ that works there. Surprised at this, Jeremy asked why do you say that? Their response was “Because he only plays 80’s and 90’s music, he’s stuck in the 80’s, but you play the perfect mix of everything… Our DJ replied, “Well I am surprised, surely good wedding DJs should play a good mix of music for everyone ?” Oh well you learn something new everyday!
