Let’s Dance


The bride and the groom both agreed that music would take centre-stage during their celebration and not only did they have a ceilidh and a silent disco, but their friends even mixed their own song for the bride to walk down the aisle to.

Combining a selection of songs supplied by the bride and groom with a seamless catalogue of similar music, the jazz-due, Casado were one supplier that the bride wanted to give an extra special mention.
