Helen and Rob, Hampton Court Palace, 28th October 2023

Helen and Rob 1st dance, Hampton Court Palace

Helen and Rob got MARRIED!

Helen and Rob got married at the wonderful Hampton Court Palace, where I am an approved supplier, on 28th October 2023. The good old English weather played it part, but we did get some welcome breaks so that photos could be taken! Helen and Rob asked me to provide my wedding DJ service, as well as my ceremony music service, and I also MC‘d during the day. Once again, my unique VW DJ booth also made an appearance! From our meetings before their big day, it was obvious that Helen and Rob were an amazing couple. Their music choices for the ceremony, and evening party were just amazing, and it was a real pleasure to work with them.

Helen and Rob, many congratulations!

The Ceremony Music

Helen and her bridal party entered the wedding ceremony to “There’s a rainbow round my shoulder – Maurice Chevalier”. What a really fun and inspired choice, love this! During the signing of the schedule, Helen and Rob chose 3 tracks:

  • Diamond – Klint,
  • Get a Move On! – Mr Scruff
  • Blinuet – Zoot Sims

Once the ceremony was over, Helen and Rob walked out to “Happy together – The Turtles”.
