As the pace picks up on another season as Wedding DJ at Burley Manor Barn we thought we would look back at another memorable party from last May.

We met Luke & Sarah-Marie on a cold winter evening at a pub by the river in Winchester after a personal recommendation from the team at Burley. Sarah Marie was hopeful of snow because growing up in the southern United States she had never had the joy of standing outside as the flakes fall around you. They explained they had met via their work with IBM and the celebration would include lots of the guests from the states who would have broad musical tastes. After a few minutes of conversation about rock bands from the early 00’s they were convinced we would be the right people to DJ their party at Burley Manor.

As usual we passed on recommendations for other suppliers the bride and groom might like to chat to and on the evening it was a lovely surprise to arrive and find Az from Lemontree photography capturing their day.
Luke and Sarah-Marie’s first dance was to a track by Rationale which we followed swiftly with big familiar party hits from both sides of the pond. On the list of requests was a track by The Old Crow Medicine Show called “Wagon Wheel” which we’ve played a few times recently and usual went down very well with the family before we partied into the night with Green Day, Blink 182, The Atari’s and some funkier electronic tracks by acts like Tuxedo.
Since this wedding the new Deer Park Barn extension has opened alongside the existing barn at Burley and it creates so many options when couples are planning their entertainment. Some use the room as a place for family to chat away from a party in the main barn and some use it for other entertainment like magicians whist the main room is reconfigured from the wedding breakfast. This was the case a few weeks ago when Britain’s Got Talent Finalist Jamie Raven entertained the guests whilst we set up next door.
Whether you are holding your reception in the old barn, the new Deer Park extension or have exclusive use of the whole hotel we would love to help bring your night home in style.
