What a lovely couple Kristy and Ben are! We had so much fun collaborating with them in the lead up to their wedding at The Boathouse in Palm Beach. As a member of the wedding industry (currently working as part of the wonderful team at WEOA), Kristy found us after watching our MD Gus give a talk at The Wedding Planner Workshop – apparently his presentation on our live acts, namely The Usual Suspects, made her rethink her decision to book a DJ for her entertainment!
The brief Kristy gave us was for her guests to have ‘an amazing time and be up all night dancing! I really want it to be an ABBA and John Farnham free zone’ – which with TUS was certainly something we were able to deliver. Ben and Kristy chose the following songs for their special moments:
Bridal Party Entrance: Feel So Close – Calvin Harris. That drop never fails to get the party started.
Bridal Waltz: The One I Love – David Gray. A personal favourite of the bride and groom.
Farewell Song: Everlong – The Foo Fighters. The lyrics ‘And I wonder/When I sing along with you/If everything could ever feel this real forever/If anything could ever be this good again’ convey a beautiful message of togetherness, as well as so much love and positive hope for Ben and Kristy’s future together. After the official farewell, Kristy came back into the venue to request a cheeky last-minute encore of Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson. This feel-good crowd pleaser was the perfect high to end the night on – when the groom ends up crowd surfing, you know it’s been a good gig!
On the monday following the event, Kristy sent through a little note that absolutely made our day. Our whole month even.
Thanks Kristy and Ben! It’s been so fantastic getting to know you guys and it was a complete pleasure working with you both!
All the best,
