RNS Mobile Disco - The Ultimate 80s & Cheese Wedding Playlist - Wedding DJ, Scrivelsby Walled Garden

Updated: Feb 16, 2023

Back in September I had the honour of providing an evening disco for Mr & Mrs Bunn, who requested a playlist based around an 80s theme. This will forever be one of my favourite weddings, everyone was up dancing the whole night and the setting was just magical. Let's delve into the selection of tracks we played at this amazing wedding.

As with every wedding, I like to have 3 songs chosen by the happy couple:

Cake Cutting: Sam Cooke - A Wonderful World

I realised after my very own wedding how awkward it actually is standing there having photos whilst you hold a knife up to a cake, with everyone staring at you. I think it's a lovely idea to have a song in the background that you can sing along to in your heads, to make things a little less awkward.

First Dance: Tom Grennan - By Your Side ( Acoustic)

For myself, the most important part I play in the day is to get your first dance right, I mean it's not hard, but that is my main focus. After that it is full on party mode, where everyone can let their hair down and get as thoroughly intoxicated as they like! Don't fret too much about your first dance though, I had a list of about 30 songs and the song I went with wasn't even on that list... it will come to you eventually, I promise!

First Dance Follow Up: Foo Fighters - Learn To Fly

A MUST!!! I always ask for a song to go straight after your first dance, this, I feel, makes the moment last longer and automatically turns everyone into party mode. Because you choose this yourself, it is more personal.

Special Live Performance: Goody - Gold

The best karaoke we have seen and will probably ever see!

The Venue:

Scrivelsby Walled Garden, Horncastle, LN9 6JB.

The venue itself is within the Scrivelsby Estate, which the owners family have owned since 1066, having been given the grounds by William The Conqueror. As a huge history nerd, I was so fascinated learning this whilst doing my research on the venue. On the estate is a church where you are able to use for your ceremony, very handy as it is a short walk to the walled garden, which hides away the most spectacular Tipi venue.
