Shakespeare said “if music be the food of love, play on” and nothing is as true as at a wedding. The music that you choose becomes an integral part of the day almost a backdrop to the whole occasion. From the string quartet that announces your entrance, to the hired DJ or band chosen to play at the reception getting the music right is essential.
The first thing to remember when it comes to hiring in London is experience so enquire how many weddings they have performed at. A good DJ probably has a website where previous clients have left feedback. They should be able to guess the mood of the room and play songs suitable for the bridal party and her guests. There should be a light atmosphere with a playlist including a variety of songs in order to keep the event fresh and enjoyable.
At Greek Concierge we believe the chosen DJ or band should be friendly, approachable and ready to mingle with the guests. Requests for songs that have special memories for the bridal party should always be honoured. Meet your chosen DJ ahead of time to gauge what kind of person they are as a good attitude and adaptability are essential for a wedding performer. If a piece of music is required that is not common or a cultural departure from the usual repertoire be sure they receive a copy in advance, or enough time to track it down. If you cannot meet them before the wedding ask to see feedback or videos from previous clients.
Cost can vary in London for DJs. Many professional companies can also provide an extra lighting rig and microphones for the speeches, reputable DJs also bring extra equipment with them so if something does happen don’t panic; the chances are they have a back up.
Remember as with every other service you have obtained it is a business agreement. Professionals will have a contract that you should sign no less than two months before the wedding. This contract outlines what you expect of them on the day itself such as the fee, the time slot agreed and the venue address. You do not want anyone getting lost on the day! If you require any extras these should also be listed.
We all know that an elegant wedding takes time and preparation. So don’t allow the stress and hassle of planning the perfect day to get to you. Let the team at Greek Concierge, take care of every little detail whilst you concentrate on creating those special memories.

Here is our first wedding decor inspiration board! With Valentines day coming up in a month, I cannot be distracted from the idea of a truely spectacular romantic wedding, and for me I envisgaed the classic Red & Black theme. It’s a popular choice for the sophisticated couple and it really highlights a mature elegance & beauty.
Some may think it’s a typical choice of theme but it really isn’t as many people fear it’s intensity as well as it’s darkness. It really does represent a deep passion as well hinting at a dark vintage style.
You can take the Red&Black theme and truely make it however you wish, whether it’s subtly placed within your flowers/accessories or whether you take the strong dedication to keeping it a throughout theme with all stationary, flowers, decorations & bridesmaids/groomsmen aheering to it.
I recently watched a video on Elysium productions blog where the couple followed a Redblack theme and it just oozed classic elegance & class! I adored it!

How about water & fire.. The idea of candles combined with water, floating is a very romantic and seductive decoration! It sets the mood with the candles and an added softness with the water.
I adore the idea of having a ‘wedding drink’ and the next image shows specially made straws! What a cute way of keeping a theme!
Feathers mixed with flowers is a gorgeous way to add something extra to your displays and creates a boutique feeling
