James and Gina, Hodsock Priory

This week we headed off to Hodsock Priory for the Wedding of James and Gina.

James and Gina chose my all-day hosting package along with Illuminated LOVE letters.

Hodsock Priory is a little further north than I usually travel, but the couple, their story and of course the venue had ‘Yes’ all over them, James and Gina were just a couple that I wanted to work with!

We arrived at 10.00am to setup the equipment for the day, this included PA and bespoke playlist for the wedding ceremony in the drawing room, battery-powered PA and bespoke playlist for the outdoor drinks reception, PA and Microphone for the wedding breakfast, then the Disco Equipment and Love Letters for the wedding reception.

Their music ranged from Jazz to 90’s Hip Hop and Ibiza Terrace , just the thing for a very hot day in May!

Awaiting feedback..
