"I would like to thank you for an absolutely cracking gig and DJ set on our wedding day last weekend! Everyone really loved it, as you could probably tell and the live set was magical. As a bride on my wedding day one would expect I would say that anything was magical, but for me the music was the best bit. I could really let loose and really enjoy the wedding after all the stress.
Would you be able to send through the set list of what the band played, if you have one? Although I was on the dance floor the whole time it's all a bit of a blur at the moment.
It was great meeting you and I hope you guys enjoyed the gig too and had a good time"
