Wedding Series: Music

A friend of mine is in a band called Movenda (pronounced ‘moy enda’) that plays a blend of traditional and folk Scottish and Malawian music. I had heard them play several years before and knew that I really liked their style so we asked them to play before our ceremony and during/after dinner. Their joyous and down to earth style suited us perfectly! We wanted a true blend of our American and Scottish identities and a ceilidh dance was just the way to start the dancing for the evening. We really enjoyed their ceilidh music and it certainly got us moving.

After the ceilidh, we said goodbye to Movenda and hello to our DJ. We initially thought we would be plugging in our iPod but then we calculated the stress and cost of purchasing the songs and figuring out the order and looked around for a DJ. David Hughes is a DJ in central Scotland and we danced the night away at a function he played and we knew he was our answer. We discussed our musical style (for us, it was no swearing or sexual innuendos and aiming for uplifting music), sent him our playlist and indicated the songs we really wanted to hear and those that were banned. He was nice to work with and we enjoyed what he mixed up for us!
