Not Too Cool To Dance...

We want to say a huge thank you everyone! Friends, family, clients, clients who are now friends... you have ALL made this year awesome for us. We have been literally all over the globe, Bora Bora, Crete, LA, New York, Tuscany, Ravello, Edinburgh, Ireland, Oklahoma and Ibiza to name a few. It's been rad. You all made it rad. We lost a few bags, we didn't sleep much, but god damnit, we had fun. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to tell your beautiful stories and thank you for letting us into your lives.

Thank you also to our friends and family who love and support us on our journey. Places to crash, trips to being bear, great dinners, way too many drinks, and some of you always making sure Jax is looked after when we can't be there. We love you a million, we appreciate you even more.

So to really thank you - we figured we should give you all some free music. Probably don't play it around kids though. Or your parents. Or at work. Unless you work somewhere cool. It's pretty dayum crunk. (sorry Wendy).

These are the magical hidden mixes from our vow renewal this year out in Joshua Tree. The music theme was fun and whatever Maria wanted to hear, the dress code was Macklemore. (More to come from that really soon!)

When David Guetta cancelled on us last minute, I just knew the time had come for me to dust down the turntables and get deep into the electronic jungle for four hours. Four lazers and two strobes (from amazon) later - I knew it might be the best party anyone had ever witnessed. I also planned to drink so much Goldrush, that at least I would think it was the best party ever.

So - ripe and ready for your new year's eve party, or just getting ready, or going to the gym or just shaking your money maker at home.... here are the three mixes, in order of appearance at Hicksville. You can download them straight from the Soundcloud links.

P.S If you don't like the track selection or mixing... try to remember, I had been drinking since 11 am and I have not touched a turntable since 2008. Also, it's free, bro.

Happy New Year, batches! See you in 2015

Much Love

Nick, Maria and Jax

Make It Like Your Birthday Everyday...

Merry Christmas, everyone!!!

What an amazing year it has been - so many things to be grateful for, and so many amazing memories have been made. I couldn't think of a more perfect wedding to share than Willem and Brittany's! Their wedding was gorgeous, and festive and full of love and fun - styled to perfection by the fabulous Sitting In A Tree Events.

I have known Brittany since we were pretty young. She was one of my best friend's little sisters, and I always adored her to pieces. She is just a really amazing woman, completely badass, and totally ridiculously hot (I MEEEEEAN!). She and Willem make a perfect match - not just because he is also ridiculously good looking. It was beyond an honor to have shot her wedding - to see her transform into a bride and become a wife in front of my eyes was magical. We are so lucky to do what we do, and even more lucky that people who know us (and don't!) trust us to tell one of the most important stories of their lives!

Thank you all for allowing us to be a part of your lives, and for letting us in. We couldn't love what we do more, and the people we work with are truly a part of our family! Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

And If It's All I Do, Then I Do It For You...

Suzanne and Mark's gorgeous destination wedding in Crete photo by STUDIO 1208
When you have a job or you run a business, you get into it for lots of reasons… for some, it's the money, or a passion, the flexibility, the challenge, to make a difference - the list goes on. However, one thing that people don't usually think about is the fact that they could make some amazing friends. We are super lucky in our work that we get to make tons of new friends with every wedding we shoot. I can't really believe that we have made so many close friends by doing our work - we work with the coolest, best people, and we get to keep them in our lives after all the work is done - BONUS!

Suzanne and Mark are no exception. These two are as amazing as they come - we are already planning a night out with them in the coming new year. They have a great story, and the love they have for each other is so deep. They are hilarious, and I really do think that laughter is one thing that keep relationships thriving.

We loved spending time in Crete with them, their families and friends - we had an amazing time, in fact! Their film shows just how much fun they are, and how much laughter and love surrounded this wedding. Hope you enjoy the full film, and if you missed it, make sure you check out their beautiful trailer too!

Never Look Back, Never Give Up...

Laura and Iván's breathtaking destination wedding in Tuscany by STUDIO 1208

Laura and Iván's wedding was so beautiful - to be surrounded by the Tuscan countryside was a dream, but when you combine that with a bunch of Scots and a bunch of Spaniards, the charm level was off the charts! Then add in the incredible talent that is Laura, who made everything - hand illustrated all the printed goods, and brought the wedding to life through her beautiful drawings…it was just perfect. I share with you their lovely full length wedding film, and I will be wishing that I was back in Tuscany basking in the sun on this freezing, rainy, holy hail-ish day in England.

I Wanna Lock In Your Love...

Oh Liz and Iain, we just love you guys! What an amazing day in a beautiful venue, surrounded by people who just want to have a really good time. That's what it's all about though in the end, isn't it… surrounding yourself with the people who will do your hair, have a little cry with you, crack up with you remembering your past lives, and dance their asses off like lunatics with you. Weddings are about the people, the memories, and the story, and these two nailed it. Enjoy their film trailer - we can't what to share the rest!
