Manchester Specialist Wedding DJ Black Swan

Manchester Specialist Wedding DJ Black Swan

Dance In The Clouds for your first dance and allow your photographer to really get some awesome pictures to treasure forever. Dry Ice is relatively new in terms of the wedding market. Not many DJs/companies do it. I decided to offer the effect it to differentiate myself from the competition and overnight night B+Gs and other vendors/venues are floored by how nice it makes the room look.

This was at the Black Swan in Hollins Green. They only accept Friday Weddings now as it is a busy venue in it’s own right. It has also just had a £1million refit with hotel added onto it. On Saturday 16th I provided an all day Wedding Day package. This involved:

1) I provided the Ceremony Music in the Church (Before/during/after)

2) Next I was already set up in the venue to provide Master of Ceremony duties.

3) Background Music was played whilst Dinner was served

4) Background music was played for the Drinks Reception

5) Disco was provided till 1am

My clients also booked…..

6) Uplighters to create coloured washes of light onto the room walls

8) Dry Ice (Dancing In The Clouds)

9) Candelabra Hire

To book any of these services please contact me for a chat or to book a meeting

On the 9th August 2014 I provided my services to Clare & Andy Ivers for their special wedding at the Compass Room in The Lowry Theatre. This room is great for a number of reasons.

1) Close to Manchester. Close to the Metro Link. Close to Hotels. Close to shops and restaurants if you are staying over night.

2) The Bar is in the same room as the main event. This will always help your event be more successful. It keeps your guests close to the dance floor.

3) Like number 2 your smokers will never be far away. A balcony surrounds the glass room. It is on the 4th floor so everyone stays where they need to be.

4) Panoramic Views of Manchester/Salford at night. You will see Media City, Imperial War Museaum and Old Trafford FC  lit up for perfect photo opportunities.

A key consideration is Audio Volume. If they have any shows on downstairs in the theatre then volume is restricted until after 10pm. Also your DJ needs to plug into The Lowrys own PA System and cannot use they’re personal PA. Ive done this room many times and it is never a problem.

I always find the staff helpful and friendly and the venue offers plenty of photo opportunities with the industry and bridges just outside.

This room would benefit from a Dry Ice 1st Dance which would give it the wow factor as well as my Giant LOVE Letters and some professional chair covers. When it is dressed correctly I find the room to look very impressive and I love how much natural light enters the room.

Here is what the Compass Room looks like at night

On Saturday 22nd of March 2014 I was privileged to provide Alan & Clare Ellis with my “All Day Wedding Package”. This includes full Master of Ceremonies. The Venue was The Black Swan in Hollins Green which is an Award Winning Country Pub with small hotel. The venue has recently undergone a Million Pound refit by a local successful businessman. The day was fantastic and the venue is ideal for small to medium sized Wedding Parties. Stock Brick with seasoned wood floors gave the Wedding a real homely feel about it. Clare looked stunning and Alan dapper in his designer suit. To add to the emotion to the room I put in 18 Uplighters around the room. The effect was stunning with the venue staff complimenting me as were other vendors.

On the day I worked with a fantastic photographer called Paul Rittaler who really got involved in the day. By the end all the kids knew his name and vice versa.

The room was dressed by Alison with beautiful chair sashes, very classy Top Table and a stunning Wedding Arch.

The Cake was the work of the talented team from The Cheshire Cat Cake Company See the pictures it was perfectly executed to fit the theme.

The Singer Wayne certainly kept the guests entertained and I can say he looked very smart and used state of the art kit. This guy can sing also.

Pro Mobile Conference 2014

Pro Mobile Conference 2014 was a brilliant meeting of the Mobile DJ Industries top talent. The Conference was over two days at The Crowne Plaza Hotel, Heythrop Park, Oxford. Over the 2 days we had 6 speakers deliver a wide range of seminars. The Key Note speaker was Randy Bartlett. Now Randy is one of the Top USA Wedding DJs commanding fees $0000s over the local average. He delivered a brilliant couple of seminars over the 2 days. Rob Brown helped teach us about networking and referalls. The highlight being the practical workshop on how to network by working the room. This was extremely worthwhile and it opens your eyes to new ways of doing things.

Day 2 Randy gave his second seminar and we also got some marketing hints and tips from the very talented Howard Wing. Howard is The Wedding Industry Awards 2014 Best Wedding Entertainer. He is from the North West and is at the very top of his game.

Overall the conference was excellent value for money.
