Award-Winning London DJs Give Wedding Music a Shake-up

Share Article

Audio Sushi, London's Award-winning music stylists, were tired of listening to ridiculously cheesy music at friends' weddings and decided to do something about it. Out went "Sunrise, Sunset," "Wind Beneath My Wings," and "We are Family," and in came a whole new way of designing wedding ceremony music.

evolved purely through client demand

Traditionally, the wedding DJ, like "The Mullet" or Bluetooth headsets, has been seriously uncool and wedding reception music has actually been the realm of, and the refuge for, some of the worst music ever composed by mankind.

Cool wedding music is not the most difficult thing to conceive but Audio Sushi found it impossible to find. In fact, to find a cool wedding DJ in London, who wasn't an international celebrity, was virtually impossible. With this in mind, Audio Sushi decided it was time to give wedding music a makeover and set out to revolutionise both wedding background music and wedding party music.

They devised two ways of doing this: the iPod-based wedding reception and finding live music and DJs for wedding receptions that break the stale, old mould.

Audio Sushi Wedding services were born. First came their "WeddingPod" where music experts conduct an in-depth consultation with the bride and/or groom to profile the music requirements for the night then the DJs design appropriate iPod playlists. This personal, customised service ensures that every track works for the client and the dance floor is filled from beginning to end.

"Our "WeddingPod" evolved purely through client demand" says Kerrin Wallace, Audio Sushi's co-founder. "In our experience, people are suffering wedding dance music fatigue and therefore come to us for something fresh and fun that they have complete control over. No nasty little Celine Dion surprises snuck in by the DJ".

The Audio Sushi team believe a wedding day is of one of life's most significant events, so why settle for mediocrity when only a bespoke international calibre DJ set will do? As each and every Audio Sushi service is customised, even the live DJs know exactly what to do and, importantly, what to play and what NOT to play.

And people are listening.

Recently Audio Sushi has been lucky enough to DJ for the British industrialists, the Dyson family, at Dodington Park in June 2008 and world-famous chef, Pierre Gagnaire, at his French country estate. Audio Sushi cater for weddings of all sizes such as a reception for 30 in a castle in the South of France and a grand reception at one of the most beautiful ballrooms in Europe. The "WeddingPod" is proving popular with a particularly high number of Civil partnership ceremonies. Often the reception is in a smaller venue where there is not a suitable space for a DJ and his or her equipment.

Audio Sushi wedding music services are available world-wide and start at £500. Popular wedding music will never be the same, thankfully.
