The Next Big Wedding Song Of 2017?

Ed Sheeran’s done it again. He’s released another song “How Would You Feel?” which could become (and we’re putting bets on it!) the biggest and most requested Wedding song of 2017.

 
You are the one girl
And you know that it’s true
I’m feeling younger
Every time that I’m alone with you

We were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in the front yard
We got questions we should not ask but

How would you feel, if I told you I loved you?
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time, spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too

In the summer, as the lilacs bloom
Love flows deeper than the river
Every moment that I spend with you
We were sat upon our best friend’s roof
I had both of my arms round you
Watching the sunrise replace the moon

How would you feel, if I told you I loved you?
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time, spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too

We were sitting in a parked car
Stealing kisses in the front yard
We got questions we shouldn not ask

How would you feel, if I told you I loved you?
It’s just something that I want to do
I’ll be taking my time, spending my life
Falling deeper in love with you
So tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me too
Tell me that you love me too

The Art Of Marriage

Happiness in marriage is not something that just happens.
A good marriage must be created.
In the art of marriage the little things are the big things…

It is never being too old to hold hands.

It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.

It is never going to sleep angry.

It is at no time taking the other for granted;
the courtship should not end with the honeymoon,
it should continue through all the years.

It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world.

It is forming a circle of love that gathers in the whole family.

It is doing things for each other, not in the attitude
of duty or sacrifice, but in the spirit of joy.

It is speaking words of appreciation
and demonstrating gratitude in thoughtful ways.

It is not looking for perfection in each other.
It is cultivating flexibility, patience,
understanding and a sense of humor.

It is having the capacity to forgive and forget.

It is giving each other an atmosphere in which each can grow.

It is finding room for the things of the spirit.
It is a common search for the good and the beautiful.

It is establishing a relationship in which the independence is equal,
dependence is mutual and the obligation is reciprocal.

It is not only marrying the right partner, it is being the right partner.

It is discovering what marriage can be, at its best.

Summer Weddings and Christmas Parties

Summer is always better than Winter for a variety of reasons…the sun, the beach, smell of freshly cut grass, BBQs to name a few. For a DJ, Summer is also our busiest time as people like to party and celebrate more when the weather is warmer and brighter.

We’re now in the home stretch to the end of the year and Christmas. If you’re planning a Christmas Party, Work Christmas Conference or Corporate Christmas Party then you need to start looking at booking now! If you’re thinking of throwing a party or event in November/December…then so is everyone else – it just makes sense. Talk to us and see how we can help make your event a success. We’ve got the experience and knowledge to work with you to meet your needs and budget. From quality sound and lighting to a professional and reliable service, The Ridler Mobile DJ can make your Corporate Event or Christmas Party one to remember.
 

Summer is also our busiest time for Weddings. Not only are couples fighting for the same dates this side of the New Year as those planning Christmas Parties, but come next year, everyone else is planning to get married in the hot New Zealand Summer. Booking a DJ for your Wedding 9 months out is not a bad idea at all…especially if your Wedding is planned for the Summer in the New Year. Get the date locked away and secured now then you can worry about some of the nuts and bolts closer to the time. If you’re planning an outdoor Wedding this Summer then we can help by providing the sound for your Outdoor Ceremony with a portable PA system and microphones to ensure everyone can hear you and that you have seamless music for your big moment. We can also work in with your Celebrant to ensure they have what they need should they require sound etc. We’ve also got a range of lighting options to really make your event different with monograms projected on to walls or the dance floor or wall uplighting to give your room lots of stunning colour.
 

So as Summer rolls around, just bear in mind that February/March are the busiest months for Weddings and November/December for Corporate Events and Christmas Parties.
