Early 2016 we celebrated Ashley & Joe’s Wedding at the beautiful Statham Lodge in Lymm. This venue really is a perfect wedding venue for a number of reasons… It is well a proportioned period venue that is well managed and maintained. It has beautiful gardens which are perfect on a summers day. Lush greenery and various props that are idea for beautiful wedding pictures. On this wedding I was booked to DJ and provide uplighting for the room. All night I was getting compliments of how well the room looked and even the venue staff were complimentary taking pictures for promotional material. Having done this venue a few times I always find it very professional and the staff attentive. Everything is to hand all day and contained within the room so guests all stay together. There is also hotel rooms you can hire if your guests want to stay over the night.
My recommendation for this room is:
Uplighting (Choose what colour to make the venue walls match your theme)
White LED Twinkling Dance Floor or Black Twinkling Dancefloor
Dry Ice 1st Dance (Dancing in the Clouds effect as seen on X Factor)
Drapery (This adds opulance to the room giving the room a lift)
PhotoBooth or Mirror (The Mirrors are the new trend set to explode in 2015/16)
Monograms (Project your logo or Name/Initials onto a wall or dance floor)
Giant Love Letters with Heart (Mine are 15ft in length and nearly 6ft. Not the cheap flimsy ones)
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.
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
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

Last night I had the pleasure of providing DJ Services at the Irish World Heritage Centre in Manchester. The Venue is brand new and only the 1st phase is complete. This will be a beast of a development once completed with excellent facilities as well as a central position within Manchester. The event was for a Cath & Joe who were celebrating their 70th Birthday (Born 6 Hours Apart). The best part of this story is they have been married 50 years and as a Surprise I asked if they would redo their 1st Dance from their Wedding Day which we did before the buffet. The song was The Drifters – Save the Last Dance for me.
I’d like to thank Tony O’Mara for asking me to provide the entertainment for his parents birthday he must be feeling a little sore today after his “Failed” attempt at break dancing. Tony helped organise the event with other family members and you could tell he put a lot off time and effort into the night.
Line Dancing, Irish Music as well as classics this great family and friends really did themselves proud THE TRUE IRISH WAY.
30thBirthday at Irlam Steelworks Club for Katy Thompson. Irlam Steelworks Club is one of the main rooms for the M44 District in Manchester. It is a perfect size for medium birthday parties and gets booked up months in advance. This is a local venue to me and always a pleasure to deliver the perfect Party / Wedding whatever the season.
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.
