Irlam Steelworks Wedding

Irlam Steelworks Wedding Manchester

Mark & Mel got married at Irlam Steelworks Club in August 2014 and kept it local.

The full day was a very relaxed atmosphere and the fact it was in the same town most of the guests come from which was a big plus point. No guests had to worry about taxi’s and the bar was very well priced which can be a barrier at posh hotels for some guests. This led to a packed dance floor and fun had by all.

Irlam Steelworks Club have 3 function rooms but for a wedding only the main room is a viable option. On site there is also a kitchen that can be used for a small charge so catering can be done usually buffet style. Irlam Steel can cater for Weddings comfortably for upto 150 guests.

In the pictures below you can see how Mark & Mel hired from me the uplighting which worked really well. The 1st picture you can see they were bright in the day and the second picture you can see it’s now dark outside and the really do make the room pop! This room benefits from 14 uplights to get the best effect. This works out at £196 for all day hire.

My recommendations for this venue is to keep it simple. By this my recommendations would be:

Uplighting (Choose what colour to make the venue walls match your theme) £14 per unit minimum of 12

Dry Ice 1st Dance

Starlit Backdrop with Starlit Head Table Skirt and Cake Starlit Table Skirt

The entertainment and lighting will set the scene and get it right you and your guests will have a party to remember for many years to come

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

Wedding DJ Lowry Theatre Manchester

Wedding DJ Lowry Theatre Manchester

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

The Look

The Look

To get The Look at your Wedding requires you to choose the right people to represent you on your big day. In this picture  the Mood Lighting accentuates the background in Vibrant Purple. With over 30,000 colour combinations we can certainly get an almost identical match to whatever you need. We offer two options when booking moodlighting.

Option 1 – 1 Colour in a Static Mode. This will stay the same colour to match your theme all night. £260

Option 2 – 1 Colour in a Static Mode until the Disco starts. We then control the colours to change quickly, slowly with many possibilities. They can strobe, do sound 2 light, Black Out or use a set program. £290

Get “The Look”.

Saturday 7th June 2014 at the Rhinewood Country Club I did Kelly & James’ Wedding Reception. It was an absolute fantastic night with some great family and friends. They will be sunning it up now in the very hot Tenerife. Thank you for booking me guys! This picture was at the end of a very hot and sweaty night on my iPhone Camera so the picture is a little pixelated.

Update…. Sadly the venue has now closed and is being demolished to make way for housing

The Lowry Theatre Compass Room

The Lowry Theatre Compass Room

Have you considered The Lowry Theatre to host your Wedding Breakfast/Reception? The beautiful Compass Room is an ideal venue. It has a few big ticks that all Party’s should have. The bar is in the same room as the dance floor and there is a large balcony which is great for any smokers in the party. It helps keep all your guests together and centres the party around the entertainment. Trust me there is nothing worse than a bar in a different room and all the blokes are propping  it up. Watch the day turn to night with panoramic views of Media City illuminated at night. It’s a perfect photo opportunity. I have DJ’d many Weddings here. If you would like a chat then please get in touch.

Recent Uplighting Event at Irlam Catholic Club

This was a Recent Uplighting Event at Irlam Catholic Club for a 40th Birthday Party. I have worked this room on many occasions but have never been booked to provide uplighting before. I was flabbergasted with the final look. It looked awesome!!! The pictures doesn’t do it justice.  Here I used 15 Uplighters. Something similar to this starts at £250 with a colour of your choice.

Booked a photographer Watch this unfold

Booked a photographer Watch this unfold. Yes the Priest was totally in the wrong. However, a professional photographer wouldn’t take this many snaps so close to the Priest. A professional photographer would of spoken to the Priest beforehand to understand what is acceptable and what is not. Do your homework and spell out to all your vendors that they need to do their homework as you don’t want any cock-ups. Does the venue allow your DJ to use smoke? Is there a sound limiter in the room that cuts the music if the DJ plays to loud to protect local neighbours from noise pollution? Do they require PAT Tests? Do the require PLI Insurance? Does the DJ only have 60 Mins to set/pack down? Make sure your vendors are up to the job and ask questions. Wedding Specialist DJs, Photographers and Videographers must do their homework and get it right.
