Updates from the atomic-dj towers have been on the less frequent side of late and that is mainly due to the fact as well as running atomic DJ I have also been planning my own wedding.
It all happened last weekend the 13th April 2013. An amazing day and although it did not stop raining outside it did not effect the party inside. We got married at Alton registry office, a lovely ceremony which myself and the bride were very nervous about and I even forgot my name at one point but it all went smoothly with the highlight being everyone singing a favourite song of ours “stand by me”.
After a brief stop at a local public house for lunch, it was down to our final destination of Bonhams Barn. We choose this venue just outside Alton as it literally is a Barn and nothing else. We spent three days prior to this doing up the barn to make sure it looked exactly how we wanted it. We hired the lot from chairs and tables,up-lighters (hired from myself) to fun games and hanging decorations.
When all guests arrived we provided a choice of drinks from Ale to Cocktails. We entertained them with the great sounds of Duo on Stilts known as Top Banana. A fantastic band who play all sorts from modern tunes to prodigy to 50’s band classics all performed high on stilts.
A hog roast followed with people only receiving food when the music played of their table name which were all named after our favourite 70’s tracks. Then onto the most nervous part of the day…. speeches. I have performed at many functions and infront of all sizes of crowds but this was the most nervous I have ever been. Luckly I had a great MC on hand who calmed me down and I got through it successfully.
We followed this with the Shoe game, a type of Mr and Mrs except with shoes. First dance followed and then dancing until 2am!!
An amazing day and I now can appreciate the feelings and emotions all the couples I work for go through on their big day.
This will help me as I go forward with my buisiness as when I am performing I can put myself in their shoes and help them through a very important day.
Companies that helped the day go so successfully:

What a day and I am looking forward to providing my services for other peoples big days over the next month or so. May has two bank holidays so this will be a very busy month but one I am looking forward to.
In meantime keep it atomic
