It was truly the best day of our lives and we loved every minute of it! Thank you for CONTINUALLY working with us from enquiry, to site visit, to the big day itself and helping us to create personalised touches (like three different PA set ups in one place lol)! It was an amazing day of truly unforgettable memories. The music was perfect, the sound was perfect and all my guests are still raving about my DJ!! You managed to keep everyone dancing including young to old and all of our friends and family from various African & Caribbean backgrounds!

“Working with the VNV Live team was an absolute pleasure. They engaged with us on the creative process from the start, bringing many fabulous and bold ideas to the table. They were as excited about our wedding as we were and they put their all in, even visiting our reception venue several times just to make sure! They set up for each venue on time at the times specified and set up for our reception the night before as requested to put our minds at ease! There’s no doubt that I’m a details man and therefore a fussy customer. VNV were the only company we found who could meet these intricate needs and our tight budget. VNV were able to transform a huge three storey warehouse in to a super hipster wedding venue that our guests will always remember! With speakers, lights and a sound engineer (who also doubled up as a DJ) to help us all day, It’s a wonder that it didn’t cost the earth!” Rhys, on behalf of myself and my wife.

“They were as excited about our wedding as we were and they put their all in…”

Wedding Profile 3 Cultural Background: Nigerian & St Lucian Wedding Venue(s): Southwark Cathedral & Hilton London Tower Bridge


Name: Michael & Alicia Emejulu

Wedding Month: September

A VNV Live DJ played key songs on cue throughout the evening as the couple and their bridal party danced into the room twice in different outfits! The wedded couple also required a Master of Ceremonies or MC from VNV Live to engage with the audience, and keep the reception schedule flowing as smoothly as possible.



Wedding Breakfast & Reception – Excellent sound equipment had to be provided by VNV Live for the music and speeches as the couple were big fans of dancing. Personal and sentimental messages would be communicated from many friends and family members during the evening. Extra speakers, on separate volume control, were also set up out in the event foyer area to ensure that all those associated with the event could clearly hear, inside or outside of the main room.

Equipment & Services Provided: Audio / Acoustic Assessment & Audio Management

Equipment & Services Provided: Handheld Radio Mics For Speeches & Announcements | Medium PA System (White) | LED Uplighters | Master of Ceremonies & VNV DJ

“VNV Live provided us with consultation, support and recommendations throughout the planning process of the wedding. The whole process was made easy, and we knew from quite early on that we had made the right decision. The punctuality and attention to detail up until the night before left us feeling confident of the day ahead. Dean led with the set up of the lighting, the music and even the MCing on the day. VNV provided several important elements of our wedding day and reception, so many things that we couldn’t risk going wrong such as the sound, DJ & event MC. To get all of these services from one company and they actually get it right is very impressive. We celebrated more than just a wedding, we celebrated a moment in life, and VNV were very much a part of this. We’re happy we chose VNV and you’re worth every penny! Totally unforgettable…” Michael and Alicia

FAQs Can we request our favourite songs? Yes you can! VNV Live will provide you with a song request form once your wedding booking has been confirmed. At VNV Live we believe that your wedding day is your big day so our DJ’s will play as many requests as possible whilst keeping the party going. Some of my music is fairly uncommon, how can I send the songs to you? As specialists in weddings of mixed culture, VNV Live are used to mixing songs that you might not hear every day in to ones that you do. You can send your music to us via various sources including online file transfer, posting USB sticks, as well as creating Spotify or Apple Music playlists. Do you visit my venue before the wedding? Yes we offer complimentary site visits to most London & Home County locations.* We can do this with you the couple, or with your wedding planner. We will always guarantee a face to face meeting with each client in person or online, however site visits are dependent upon availability. Do you charge extra for weddings that are outside London? If your wedding is outside of the M25, VNV Live may charge a discretionary mileage and accommodation fee depending on the package or services being delivered. We can provide our audio-visual & entertainment services overseas too, but extra fees will be applicable. How long does it usually take for you to set up? We determine how long it will take to set up each event based upon the amount of equipment or services that each client has ordered. Most weddings usually require 2-4 hours to set up, however this can be extended if you are having a more elaborate production. VNV Live always aim to complete set up at least 2 hours before any event starts, and our expert logisitics team will liaise with the venue or wedding planner to ensure we are ready on time; even setting up the night before if necessary. *Terms & conditions apply. 38
