This Saturday just gone I had the pleasure of Djing and MCing for newly-weds Jimmy & Michelle Loader at the stunning All Smiles venue at Melbourne's Docklands. It's a brilliant venue for a cocktail style wedding reception. Great service, great food and a view over the harbour is stunning. Especially when the sun goes down and Melbourne begins to sparkle.
Jimmy & Michelle decided to have their ceremony right there at the venue overlooking the harbour. This was such a smart move. Rather than having to deal with logistics and limousines, they could relax and spend time with their photographer.
One added advantage of being so close to the city, is that should you be looking to party on after the reception, you're just minutes away from the CBDs many venues, and there's no shortage of taxis and accommodation.
I can't thank Jimmy and Michelle enough for trusting me with their wedding reception. This was my first time at All Smiles (Docklands) and I hope to be back soon. (Check out the picture of the candy bar and you'll see why).
Big thanks to Nicole from Nicole Williams Photography for the awesome shot of Jimmy & Michelle by the water at Docklands. Please be sure to check out her work should you be looking for a truly professional photographer for your next event.
Big congratulations to Ben & Melissa McCoy. Judging by the smiles on their faces, today and tonight is turning out to be everything they had dreamed of. Big thanks to Bram Leigh Receptions for their hospitality & professionalism. What a great couple and venue!
Tonight's Wedding is out at the Alpine Retreat Hotel, Warburton. I must say that they did a great job transforming the atrium into a Wedding Chapel. Thanks to Daniel & Cassie Stormer for trusting me with this very important night in their lives. As I type I have a dance floor packed full of people singing along to John Farnham's - The Voice. Next up a bit of Daddy Cool me thinks.
A big thank you to Robbie & Melissa for taking the time to send me this thank you card. They recently tied the knot surrounded by family & friends at Avalon Castle (Cockatoo). Such a beautiful place for two people to become one. Click the image below to check out their website.
Over the weekend I had the pleasure of working with some wonderful venues. The best by far was a spectacular new venue in Warrandyte South called Olivigna Estate. This great Italian escape is just 30 minutes from Melbourne. If you're looking for a magical place spend your wedding day/evening, then look no further.

Hi there, I'm Ian Wagner. Thanks for checking out my Blog. Since returning to Melbourne in 2007 and entering this next "Mobile Dj" chapter of my Dj career; I've entertained some truly wonderful people. Sure... Djing in clubs & venues has its percs, but I've really enjoyed being able to do what I love in a more intimate setting where people are just being themselves.
