It's been six years since I last DJ'ed upstairs at the South Bank Studios in Bristol's Southville - coincidentally at another 40th birthday party. Since then the owners may've changed but its still retained the rustic qualities that make it feel both relaxed and informal.

So here I was for the first time at Berwick Lodge near Bristol's Cribbs Causeway, and very nice it was too. The wedding reception disco was in the Mews and not the main building, but it was really nice all the same and had a lovely intimate feeling.

When I sat down with the Bride and Groom several months ago it was clear from the list of songs they loved that there was going to be a lot from the 1970's. They were both huge fans of David Essex and a lot of the rock'n'roll of that era - no problem, many of these include some great 'get up and dance' songs.

I must admit it took me a little while to get my head around a wedding reception disco on a cold and damp Monday evening at the end of October. I was worried that it might be the same for the guests too - but as soon as I walked into the room I could tell they were up for a good night as the atmosphere was really warm and everyone was full of smiles.
