Jo and Pete’s wedding, Battle Abbey School, 23rd October 2021

Jo and Pete chose the historic Battle Abbey School as the venue for their fabulous wedding on 23rd October 2021. The celebrations started with the wedding ceremony, for which I provided my ceremony music service. This was followed by drinks in the gardens, and then the wedding breakfast in the library. I also provided the background music and was the Master of Ceremonies for the day. After Jo and Pete cut the cake, it was time for the evening party, which I DJ’d with my VW Campervan DJ booth, Bose sound and uplighting service.

It was a real pleasure to work with the brilliant staff at Battle Abbey School, and the amazing wedding photographer Scott Kendall who kindly provided the fantastic images below. Thank you so much Scott!
