Deanwater Hotel Wedding DJ. I performed here in the Gold Suite at The Deanwater Hotel in April for the lovely Natalie & Johnathon. It was the first time I had been in the Gold suite at this beautiful cheshire wedding venue for nearly 10 yrs. I’ve been back here to the Deanwater Hotel many times for many weddings but never back to this room. And what a return.

Deanwater Hotel Wedding DJ First Dance

Just before the first dance we had the cake cutting. The couple had chosen The Lumineers – Ho Hey to play in the background while they did this which got people swaying. I then invited the couple on to the dance floor to perform their first dance to which they received a standing ovation. The song of choice was Ed Sheeran – Perfect .

 

Music & You

 

Party Time

Better than a selfie at Deanwater Hotel

Better than a selfie at Deanwater Hotel

The playlist the couple had supplied via the online planner had a 40-ish tracks on it, giving me a wide choice of music to guide the night along. Mainly consisting of eighties, nineties, chart stuff and a little bit of rock. Including Kansas – Wayward Son which seemed like  personal favorite of the groom. With adding some of my own suggestions and guests requests on the night safe to say a great night was had by all by the time we reached the end. The final song was Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol which I haven’t played for ages at a wedding.  It was soo good to hear again.

Bearing in mind it was the 1st weekend after New Years Eve, people where still up for good dance. More details about this wedding here :- On The 7th Wedding DJ

I was asked to play solely from the playlist, keep the sound limiter in mind and make sure everyone had a great a night. All achieved. Click here for the full blog post. Bramall Hall Wedding DJ

January 2017 Inquiries and more

Manchester Wedding DJ January 2017

Manchester Wedding DJ

January February & March are usually pretty quiet for actual weddings to do, but as soon as the 1st of January rolls round the inquiries start flowing in. I think people are just waiting to wake up News Years Day, and say right ‘let’s get this wedding planning sorted’ 🙂 . And this year was no different. Loads of meetings, emails and phone calls which made it a bumper month for bookings here. We had by the end of January 2017 half the amount of bookings on the books, we had in the whole of 2016. Still 11 months to go!  So if the rest of year continues like January, 2017 is going to be the best & busiest year ever.

Bring on the parties, I got some good music at some great venues with lots of lovely people coming up and I can’t wait. So I’ll wish you all the very best for 2017 and I’ll see you around. 😀

The Father & Daughter dance was announced but the dancefloor was shared with everyone. The song of choice for this precious moment was Avril Levigne – I’m With You . This was a 1 st for me, as a father daughter dance, but you can see it meant the world to them both. It’s always about what you want, what means the most to you, so weather it’s a tried and tested classic or something only you would have, I’ll play it as that what makes it special to you.

 

Hi David,
Thank you so much. Everything was perfect – lights, music, yourself ect. Nothing could have been any better. Thank you so much for the photographs they are fantastic. We will definitely be recommending you!
Thanks again,

I was only booked 8 days before the wedding day for this Mottram Hall Wedding. The Bride & Groom having been let down last minute by another DJ. But this is the beauty of my online planner. Once it’s set-up, you input all your favorite tunes, must haves and do not plays. And in no time at all I can have your perosnal playlist of your essential party favorites.

1st Dance

The playlist wasn’t too extensive mainly consisting a chart music with some party classics thrown in from the Sixties & Eighties. Also I had to squeeze in some Smiths so I played There Is a Light That Never Goes Out  which was greeted with a double thumbs up.

 

The Finale

Cheshire Wedding DJ

Unfortunately unbeknownst to me (the negative of not having a pre-wedding consultation) there was a coach arranged to pick everyone up at 9:30. So everyone left at the same time with the exception of the bride & groom so they were left with 3 of their friends. So I played their songs of the playlist, for around 20/30 minutes before the left as well. But not before they had come over and told me how much they had enjoyed the night, and the music I played for them. And even thou there wasn’t any big anthem for everyone to get up to finish the night, I still finished with their song of choice which was You’ll never walk alone – Gerry & The Pacemakers.

Cheshire Wedding DJ

In early October 2016 I was once again booked to supply my disco & uplighting for another Cheshire wedding in Styal Cheshire. The venue in question was the fabulous Quarry Bank Mill for which I am the recommend Wedding DJ & Lighting supplier.

The couple in question (Cat & Martin) had supplied a playlist using my online planner.  This list had a round 70+ songs on for the night plus an additional 10 Do Not Plays, which I also consider a very important factor to consider.

Uplighting

I turned up at around 8 in the morning to set up the uplighting and set it to their colour, which in this case was Purple. It was all installed and set and turned off. Then it would be turned on in the evening during the room turn around. This makes the room look totally different for everyone, and gives a real WOW Factor for everyone including the day guests.

The 1st party dance had been requested by Cat & Martin as Groove is in the Heart – Deee-Light , Which was a 1st for me it has to be said.

My Old School Yard – Steely Dan, Pink Floyds’ – Another Brick In the Wall and not forgetting Ringlefinch – Drink Alone as some of the more unusual place we visited but having fun all the way!!!

 

Feedback

Review – What the Bride and groom said on Facebook

A massive thank-you to David for making the evening part of our wedding such fun. The set-up was completely fuss free and the music great. He was amazingly accommodating with our choices, but mixed in with loads of stuff of his own that fitted in really nicely 🙂 The photos from the event show just how much people were getting into it!
Also, David was an absolute pleasure to deal with leading up to the event. Really responsive and well organised – I couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

Cat and Martin

 

Not a lot for me to add other than have a look at the pictures, on here and Facebook maybe. If you are having your wedding here at Quarry Bank Mill or anywhere else in Cheshire / North West, give me a call. I’m always happy to discuss music 🙂

First off I arrive makes sure it’s the right time to unload, in this case it was, so I just did that. Unloaded & set-up the disco and Micro uplighting package. Set the lights to blue to colour co-ordinate with the wedding colour theme. Once done, I introduced myself to the photographer and venue staff to let them know I was here, what I was doing and when etc. I then took over the background music from the in-house system, so I was in full control of the music for introductions and music.

He then handed is daughter over to the groom so they could share their 1st dance as a married couple. Their song for this dance was Boyce Avenue – A thousand Years which is really lover acoustic cover of the Christina Perri song. After sharing the 1st half of the song together I was asked to invite everyone to join in, and they did. Again sharing this moment can really be such a special moment. This is why talk about it at any consultation as I want you to have it how you want it. On your own, share half or all of it. Your day, your way.

The 1st Wedding of 2015 at The White Hart Lydgate

2016 – what’s new, well before we get to what’s new in 2016, we must ask 2015 to take a bow. Wow what a year 2015 was, lots of new venues, re-visiting lots of old venues, meeting some absolute fabulous brides & grooms and some funky dancing guests. You all have made it a year to remember. I bid you a fond farewell 2015, great memories have been made, and you wont be forgot in a hurry.

Hello 2016

And now 2016, I await with baited breath for the fun and & good times you have in store for my and my clients. I have never had so many bookings for the year ahead at the turn of the year as I do for 2016. So things are looking good for the year ahead.

Already this year…

Manley Mere 2016 Weddings

Manley Mere Wedding DJ

It’s the 3rd January 2016 and I’ve already played at 1 new venue this year Manley Mere, I wonder how many more new wedding venues I will be asked to perform at this year. As nice as it is venturing pastures new, I still look forward to re-visiting some venues I like to call me second home due to the amount of weddings I have done there. These include The White Hart in Lydgate, I usually get one festive wedding here.  The Midland Hotel I already have a couple of bookings for 2016 at this fabulous city center venue. But last but no means least, my home from home, Quarry Bank Mill. I sincerely look forward to lighting or DJing or both for Mandy, Heather, Alison and the team, who always seem to make feel so welcome.

New lighting

uplighting shirgly hall in pink & blue

Uplighting at Shrigley Hall, Cheshire

I mentioned lighting a  moment ago, so here is a good time to let you know that I have invested in more up-lighters now, so I can do multiple rooms / venues on the same day, and my plan is to invest some more Festoons as well. These where very well received at the open day at Quarry Bank I did in November.  Along with doing monograms, image projection, flame lights and of course uplighting, I now have a wide variety of lighting to help enhance your chosen venue. I am also going to improve my dedicated lighting website so you can get a proper feel for just the lighting side of things…

 

Finally

So without further a do, I hope that 2015 was kind to you, and 2016 is better still. I sincerely wish you all the very best for 2016 and beyond.

Stockport Town Hall – Committee Suite

Part 1 of 2 weddings I did over the weekend. One with the 100 songs on the playlist the other with 12. The idea being that how ever much or little music guidance & information you give give me I’m able to give you the nights entertainment you want.

The Playlist

Stockport Wedding Playlist

Stockport wedding playlist

So Friday night I was over at fabulous Stockport Town Hall. It was for a smaller wedding crowd of around 80 so we were in the Committee Suite. Parquet flooring, wood panels and chandeliers – grand feel for a smaller wedding party.As already mentioned I had been supplied a playlist of 100 songs plus 1st dance. This list is more of an eclectic mix of indie, chillout dance, rock and Manchester tunes.

The First Dance

 

Stockport Wedding DJ

So for back ground early door I picked a few more of the chillout options on the playlist, which went down very well, with more than a couple singing along or nodding their heads. We then kicked of the evening with the 1st dance – which was Howard Hughes By Ride. We then had the guests join around half way followed by The Charlatans – Only One I know to kick off the party!

 

Party Time

Wedding Reception at Stockport Town Hall

Party Time at Stockport Town Hall

Now as much as the guests where enjoying the music, they also wanted some more charty stuff which wasn’t really accounted for on the playlist. So after a brief discussion with happy couple we then had a couple of sessions of more modern stuff. And this is where being flexible can really help the evening. Sometimes YOUR music isn’t really party music or it doesn’t appeal to everyone, and being that bit flexible helps to let everyone have some dance floor time. When we got to second set thou everyone was loving it. We then followed that with the old skool dance anthems to finish the night off.

Last Dance

Stockport Wedding Last Dance

Now as a specific last dance song wasn’t supplied I had to pick one so as I hadn’t played it during the evening we finished the night off with One Day Like This – Elbow . I think it was safe to say it was good choice! 🙂

So finally…

We had a big request list, some flexibility regarding the music and a couple of requests on the night, and we had a great night. Feel free to download the entire playlist Here.
