Our LOVE letters have dimmable lights which is ideal for setting the scene for those all-important pictures.

For no extra cost, we are also happy to supply some up lighting behind the letters to add even more elegance to this wonderful effect, simply ask us to provide this extra free service and let us know the choice of your colour preferred. A Discount on hiring the LOVE letters is available when booked with disco and/or room mood lighting. This particular picture was taken in the Fisherman’s retreat which is one of my favorite wedding venues

My Job takes me to so many places and I get to meet so many great people and be part of their big day. I’ve had a great summer this year and perhaps the only thing missing was a little more sunshine. Throughout the years, there have been certain venues that always stand out to me as being an absolute pleasure to work in, and Colshaw Hall in Cheshire is definitely one of them. Not only is the setting, venue,, food and staff amazing, it’s also a DJ’s dream to work in, especially in summer. The venue boasts air-conditioning, which is ideal when moving very heavy equipment around and it’s extremely easy access too. The only slightly down side is the acoustics if your DJ is not using a premium sound system. Sub bass bins and perhaps up to 4 additional midrange speakers strategically positioned to produce a nice balanced sound is definitely recommended. I have played at this venue on a number of occasions and there’s plenty of space for dancers to move their groove and throw some serious shapes.

Wimberry Hill Farm was a slightly unusual venue as it's a combination of a garden centre and wedding venue. It’s a Very nice venue and as always, a great night. From a DJ’s point of view, this venue had the extra bonus of very easy access, and a curtain separating the wedding party, so setup times was not really an issue. The staff was fantastic and even offered to help me carry the equipment in, but being the trooper I am, I declined their kind offer.
Fridays wedding was at Addington Hall, I have been on a small journey with this couple, Dave (The Groom) asked his good lady to marry him at his 50th Birthday party back in April 2014 where I had the pleasure of being his DJ, naturally, she said YES!....and Friday the 3rd of June 2015 they got married, great night, great venue, great people, happy days!
I recently blogged about how amazing an unusual choice of blue up-lighting looked at the Fisherman’s retreat, Apart from the blue theme, I really think the traditional and popular choices of pink and purple also look fantastic. As shown in this example of up lighting I provided at the broadfield hotel in Rochdale
I often work along side some fabulous and entertaining musicians and singers during the evening reception at weddings, but I’ve recently started to take note of the extra special touches that add nostalgia and magic to the wedding breakfast. I recently met a harpist that most definitely presented an authentic traditional summers wedding atmosphere for the guest arrival. Playing a mix of classical and very modern compositions, Alis the Harpist is highly recommended and I would be happy to pass on her details if you would like her services for your special day
I have purchased another microphone, known as the vintage 'Elvis' Microphone, it's going to be ideal for wedding breakfast speeches, it will look pretty nice on photographs too. I just hope it doesn't encourage wanna be xFaxtor singers as these vintage looking mics scream out "sing!"
I was at the Fisherman’s Retreat again this weekend, slightly different colour scheme to the usual white, blue chair covers and the Bride and Groom asked me to set the room up with a blue lighting theme too. The result, as you can see, was fantastic. I think alternative colours are becoming very popular, who would have thought that blue would have looked so effective
