A fun end to an amazing wedding

Lucy & Trent’s Hillstone St Lucia Wedding with DJ Ben Shipway

I first met Lucy & Trent when we met for a coffee at Hillstone, St Lucia’s “Hundred Acre Bar” for our first planning meeting. We decided to have our first meeting there because they had chosen Hillstone’s Rosewood Room as their wedding reception venue. Our first meeting was a lot of fun and super productive, thanks to Lucy’s attention to detail and Trent’s contagious excitement for the wedding we had a great time running through their ideas for the night.

After a few planning meetings, a phone call and some emails back and forth we arrived at their wedding day. When I walked in to the Library bar I saw a sign sitting on an easel with the “dance floor rules” written in cursive, my favourite of which was “Dance off challenges can NOT be declined”. That is when I knew we were in for a great night.

After eating dinner upstairs in the Rosewood Room, guests made their way down to the Library Bar and gathered around the dance floor for the bridal waltz, “Hooked on a feeling” by Blue Suede. Immediately after the dance floor broke out, some favourites of the night were “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, “Blame It On The Boogie” by the Jacksons and “What I Like About You” by The Romantics.

Lucy & Trent’s family and friends danced the night away until their departure at 11.30PM, which was marked by an amazing sparkler archway to send them off in to married life together.

Thanks Lucy & Trent for choosing me to be a part of your special day!

Lucy & Trent had this to say after their wedding:

“Ben Shipway was the G&M DJ for our wedding ceremony and reception.

We wanted a fun, happy and relaxed atmosphere and to always have the dance floor occupied. We also wanted to have an easy and stress-free organisational process and to feel like we were guests at our own wedding. All of this came true!

Ben played a major role in the success of our wedding celebration with our family and friends. Ben’s knowledge and understanding of music and what works best to get the flow and atmosphere you want is fantastic. His ability to assess and engage a crowd to keep everyone happy and on the dance floor is also unbelievable! 

We had the most amazing night and by the sounds of things so did all of our family and friends! We definitely recommend Ben as a DJ for any event and will be recommending G&M to anyone who will listen!”
