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
In April I attended a Social Media Masterclass in Shoreditch, London. It was hosted by Matt Hodkinson of Influence Agents. This is actually opposite Google UK Headquarters. Brilliant course and some excellent tools on Facebook, Youtube, Linked In, Twitter, Google +, Tumblr etc.. that I would never of known existed.
