PA advice and hire
Most wedding venues already have a PA and microphone that can be used, predominantly, Brides and Grooms are usually more concerned about background music and don’t feel they need a microphone, but it’s easy to overlook the fact that people absorb sound and children are rarely behaved when it comes to being quiet on your big day. Therefore, I highly recommend having the PA system ready to use, even if you don’t think you will need it, ask the venue to have it ready, just in case you change your mind. Projecting ones voice to the back of the room, especially over the occasional distraction from children often proves fruitless and leaves the guest at the back of the room struggling to hear every carefully thought out word that is spoken on the day. As regards to background music, some venues will already have some music to play or invite you to bring your own CD, or if the venue is well prepared, they may even have the facilities to plug in your iPad. Some people will choose to bring their own stereo, If there is no PA system available at the venue, but in a large room full of people, the acoustics will not be very good and music will not be projected very well, plus most home stereos do not have the option to plug in a microphone
The perfect solution - (wedding breakfast PA)
There is off course a perfect way to play background music and project the human voice evenly throughput the room with impressive sound quality, and that is to hire a professional PA and music system. Our PA system is extremely adaptable and can even be setup to distribute surround sound in awkward shaped rooms, for example ‘L’ shaped rooms, or even have sound in more than one room if your venue is full to capacity and not everyone can fit into the main room where the all important speeches will be held, not to mention the various announcements throughout the day. As regards to the music, our system comes with wedding breakfast to suit, every song has been carefully selected and comes pre-installed and ready to play through our digital media player, no skipping CD’s, or windows updates and reboots to worry about. However, if you prefer to play a CD, the system has that facility too. Songs can be loaded using SD card or USB stick if you prefer to bring your own music, but we have the music covered to help make your day run perfect. The PA is also setup so that a simply flick of a switch will enable the microphone which comes complete with it’s own stand. The system is simple to use, but we can arrange to have someone control it for you at the key announcements if you prefer.
Ceremony PA hire
For ceremony PA hire, we have a white DJ Booth and use a wireless speaker system which has proved very useful when compared the traditional wired system. It has helped us avoid placing speakers where they may obstruct the registrar, vicar or photographer and even enabled us to place speakers where normally it would have been impractical Before we started using the wireless system, we was presented with all kinds of issues, for example, the use of duck tape is not allowed in listed buildings, time to setup often takes up a great deal of time when cable is involved, or issues with hazards creation by trailing audio cables across busy walkways. Our wireless speaker system saves lots of time and avoids all the above-mentioned issues.
