Here’s another true story for you about a wedding that I was the Dj at near Inverness.
In 2017 I was hired to provide my wedding disco at The New Drummossie Hotel near Inverness.
After a recent discusussion with my friend Mark, who is also a Dj, we decided that I had probably seen everything at a wedding that was possible after 42 years as a wedding Dj.
How wrong we were and it felt like we had tempted fate.
So getting back to the story. The bride and groom had told all their guests that they had got married abroad and they were having an after party at Drummossie hotel.
The truth of the matter was very different and I was let in on the secret.
I met with the bride and groom at New Drummossie Hotel early on the day to prepare for springing their surprise on their wedding guests.
The guests all arrived and my disco was set up in the lovely big function room.
The bride and groom had arranged to do a burns supper type start to their wedding reception with a haggis and a piper starting off proceedings.
Once they had toasted the haggis the groom took my microphone and addressed his guests. “ we’ve actually got you all here under false pretences as we didn’t get married abroad, but we’re going to get married now”
The room erupted in cheers and the minister who was a family friend put on his dog collar and walked out and conducted the marriage service.
It was absolutely fantastic and really surprised all their friends and family and me!
After 42 years as a wedding Dj yet another surprise for me at a wedding and another first.
This really is one of the reasons that I love my job so much as a Wedding Dj. My brides and grooms never cease to amaze me with their ideas and unique ways to do things.
I have a life of huge variety, different venues all over the country, people from all walks of life and I cross seamlessly from one to the other every weekend.
The views on my travels are amazing too. Scotland is a beautiful place to live and I’m so lucky to be paid to see views like this every week. It’s extremely hard work, late nights, early mornings, lots of heavy lifting sand standing for 5 hours at a time.
