Meet Mel and Mark Lyons. They got married yesterday and I had the pleasue of DJing at their wedding party! I brought my camera along to give you a little sneak peek at another great Dance Til Tomorrow wedding.
It’s been nearly a year since I was in the Temple of the Winds at Mount Stewart estate and it’s one of my favourite wedding venues to DJ in. Its small and charming and always has a great intimate atmosphere.
For their first dance, Mel and Mark chose a lovely cover of Lana Del Rey’s song ‘Video Games’ performed on acoustic guitar by American songwriter Collin McLoughlin. I wasn’t actually aware of this cover until Mel sent me the youtube link below.
Mel dedicated Roberta Flack’s ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ to her parents who had a sweet wee slow dance on their own. This is how its done!
This is Sam. The only person I’ve met that knows every single word to Rapper’s Delight. EVERY. SINGLE. WORD.
Shoes? Pffft… who needs shoes to dance?!
Bill Withers’ ‘Lean on Me’ at its beautiful, literal best.
Every wedding I DJ at will have a request or two that surprise me. Nothing from this wedding on will surprise me as much as Dorothy, the mother of the bride requesting ‘Slam’ by hardcore drum n bass band Pendulum! Her other request was for ‘Jump’ by House of Pain. Coolest mum ever.
Here’s some of my favourite songs from the night…
Pendulum – Slam (seriously Dorothy! I’m still in shock…)
Darude – Sandstorm
Bedouin Soundclash – When the Night Feels My Song
Imelda May – Tainted Love
Josh Ritter – Snow is Gone
Sugarhill Gang – Rapper’s Delight
Muse – Plug in Baby
Bill Withers – Lean on Me
Bomfunk MCs – Freestyler (Mark wouldn’t let me go home til I played this!)
