Jade & Dean’s Osteria Wedding

 with DJ Ben Shipway

Wedding DJ Hire | #GMDifference

I have been working in the private event industry as a DJ for about 6 years at the time of writing this blog. A cool little thing that starts to happen is you find yourself working through a group of friends as they all gradually tie the knot. Jade & Dean were guests at another wedding I DJed for Todd & Mags’ at Stamford Plaza in 2017, which as you may recall was an absolute banger of a wedding (Check out the video if you don’t believe me).

I knew that I was going to be playing to a crowd of music lovers. Dean is the guitarist in ‘Ball Park Music’ and I had already seen what Jade’s friends were capable of at Todd & Mags’ wedding so I was super excited to hit the decks and deliver the party that they deserved.

Jade & Dean’s music preferences for their wedding were right down my alley. We bonded over our mutual disappointment in “New Kanye” and worked together to curate a playlist that hit hard on their RnB & Pop favourites with a nod to the cheesy 90s sing-alongs that dominated their childhood.

They chose some pretty awesome and unique songs for some of the most special moments of their day. Jade walked down the aisle to “LOVE” by Kendrick Lamar, and they entered their reception to “Good Life” by Kanye West. For their first dance they chose the Triple J Live Version of “Pineapple Skies” by Miguel. The style really resonated with me, soulful and positive. My advice for anyone considering some unique song choices for your wedding, don’t be afraid to be different.

Check out the video to see how we lit up the dance floor at Osteria for hours (I actually don’t think I saw Jade leave the d floor once). I was super lucky to be a part of such a cool celebration for 2 amazing people and thankfully they still have some more friends waiting to be married so I’m sure I will catch them for round 3.
