David & Siobhan got married at the Novotel Worsley in June 2016. The ceremony was at the beautiful St Peters Church in Swinton. If ever you want a church to make you go wow then this is it. The vicar was a lovely man and provided a well structured service.
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.
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
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.
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.
