Package: Custom Full Day Package
Venue: 6 Kildare Street, Dublin - Royal College of Physicians
We had an unusual, but most enjoyable custom full day wedding package on Saturday. The venue was the Royal College of Physicians on Kildare Street in Dublin. It was a wedding for Anthony and Cathy Thuillier. Originally we had been booked to play for a full night package but because the couple where doing things differently our playing time was extended.
We had an early afternoon setup, as we had two systems to setup in two different areas of the venue. We had a small setup in the reception area of the venue for the drinks reception and guest arrival and our main DJ setup in the Ball Room.
The Couple had decided that they where not going to have a meal at the venue, they had their meal earlier in a nearby restaurant with family. Their guests for the wedding where to arrive at the venue for 7.30pm for the drinks reception and finger food.
Vivify provided music for the drinks reception from 7pm till 8.30pm. Speeches where then done with sound and mics supplied by Vivify. At 9pm it was into the Ball Room for the first dance, which was an Elvis Song 'I just can't help believing', it was the first time that I have ever played that particular song for a first dance and it seemed to go down well with the crowd.
The guests were a little slow to get going which is what happens sometimes with a weddings that start that little bit later. But once they settled in the dance floor was soon full. 80's and 90's with a touch of chart was the order of the night. I had tried some older stuff at the start of the night but it was a younger crowd and 80's seemed old enough for them to keep them moving.
Last song of the night was chosen by Anthony & Cathy and it was The Waterboys - 'Whole of the Moon. As I said not your typical full day wedding but a most enjoyable one.
