British DJ in France (an article by Perfect Day)
Choosing your wedding music is never an easy task: do you go for a band, a DJ
or both and does it fit in your budget? Personally, I feel they both work very
well, I find a DJ keeps the party going, whereas a band really gets people on
the dance floor, but then they stop for a break and people wander off.
James, from British DJ in France, moved to South West France with his family
over fifteen years ago; he had the advantage of growing up within both the
French and English music culture. This has allowed him to
appreciate and understand the music preferred at English speaking events. He
is really passionate about being a DJ and has also travelled to follow some
famous DJ’s, which have been inspirational to him.
As I’m asking the same questions for all supplier interviews, I am finding that
with two of my questions I am getting the same answers: it has become clear
that a lot of suppliers cannot choose their favourite location, and this clearly
goes to show just how many amazing and beautiful choices there are in this
area. The other thing which has come apparent, is that everyone in the
supplier community appreciates what the others do and do not want to
pinpoint just one favourite person, which is great as it shows that everyone
appreciates each other’s tremendous work.
How long have you worked in weddings?
I have worked 2 years (third season is this year) in weddings but I have lived
in France for 20 years.
Why do you love specialising in weddings?
Weddings are a fantastic experience and the fact I am able to be a part for
such an important day for the couple and their guests is a real privilege.
What is your best wedding experience?
My best experience was a Brazilian wedding. It was an amazing atmosphere
and they just did not stop partying. The party went on till 6 in the morning.
Where is your favourite wedding location?
There are so many beautiful locations in Southern France, it’s just impossible
to choose one. However, if I was to choose a region in France, it would have to be Provence as it has so much to offer for every kind of wedding, big or small.
What is your top tip for newly engaged couples?
My top tip for the newly engaged couples, would be to just enjoy their special
day and let the suppliers take away any worries or issues. It’s an amazing
experience getting together with all your friends and family, some of which
you may not have seen in a very long time. And most of all it’s important to
have plenty of fun and celebrate a life long commitment.
Who is your favourite supplier?
I also don’t have a favorite supplier as there are so many professional, kind
and caring wedding suppliers in France.
A brief look at James’s social media shows what a great time he has at the
weddings, and as you can see from his answers, the party just doesn’t stop if
the dance floor is still full! Sounds like my kind of DJ!
