wedding DJ from Ireland for Donna and John

MINT DJ were contacted earlier this year. They were asked to provide their wedding DJ from Ireland for Donna and John who live in Bognor, West Dublin, after they had previously seen their expert wedding DJs perform at their friends wedding in another part of Ireland back in September year. This bride and groom decided the Gold package suited their needs the best. The venue they chose was the idyllic Upwaltham barns in the Wicklow countryside.

It was a Friday wedding in Ireland. Everyone in the wedding industry will tell you weddings on any other day than Saturdays are invariably not the greatest parties. However MINT DJ love to party and they were determined the Wedding of Donna and John was going to be different!

The wedding DJ from Ireland arrives before time

MINT DJ arrived early in the evening around 6.30pm, The Groom, John, noticed me and came over immediately and greeted me. John informed me that they were ahead of schedule and asked if some background music could be put on as soon as possible.

The DJ loaded in the Sound system, Lighting and DJ equipment, setting up alongside an amazing wedding band that goes by the name of 4 Dollar Bill, 

Wedding DJ Sussex

4 Dollar bill are based in Ireland. But time was running out as everything to do with this wedding had somehow run ahead of time? Perhaps the wedding speeches were very short? who knows! However professional wedding DJs always feel it is our responsibility to be set up as quickly as possible, so the bride and groom can perform their very important first dance with no unnecessary delays.

It took just over 40 minutes for our wedding DJ from Ireland to load in and set up, although he had background music playing within 10 minutes and then finished setting up the equipment and providing the finishing touches. then it was time for the first dance.
