Gemma and Liam, The Walled Garden
My second wedding of the weekend was for Gemma and Liam at The Walled Garden in Beeston, Nottinghamshire.
This secluded marquee venue sits alongside Beeston Golf Club and is the proverbial ‘hidden gem’.
The couple had a penchant for all things 80’s so I invited one of the best 80s DJ’s to help, Jason Johnson!
Gemma and Liam chose ‘Into You’ by Ashanti for their first dance and finished their celebrations with ‘Stop Crying Your Heart Out’ by Oasis.
DJWD arrived at the the venue at 08.30AM to setup the equipment to compliment the venue and it’s existing equipment in addition to the Classic Evening DJ package.
We had a really eclectic guest list with different music tastes and of very different ages, and Wayne managed to get everyone up on the dance floor and dancing all night! I even managed to give myself a stitch at one point, I was dancing so much!
