Joshua Bradley Wedding DJ & Lighting in the Bluebell Suite. I supplied my DJ & Lighting for Natalie & Steven in the Bluebell Suite at the fabulous Joshua Bradley Pub / restaurant in Hyde Tameside in April. We had met up in January, this is when they booked. We then had a an additional meeting a week before the wedding to make sure I had all the up to date information. As I was providing music & microphones for the speeches during the wedding breakfast, I needed to make sure I knew where to set-up for the different times of the day and night.

Customer Testimonial

Steven & I would like to say a great big thank you to David for creating us with the soundtrack to our special day.We married at the Joshua Bradley in April and David worked his socks off from his set up in the morning, throughout the day and evening until we all finally left the dance floor in the early hours.

We gave David our brief: party time with a constant full dance floor and boy did he deliver. He gave us exactly what we wanted without us even knowing what that was. Somehow, without me having a clue what songs we wanted, David managed to nail it by listening to what atmosphere we wanted and reading between the lines.

What a professional! If your looking for great service from someone who’s priority is delivering a spot on atmosphere, tailored to you and your guests wishes and will work damn hard to make sure you get it then your in the right place. David is THE wedding DJ! Thank you, Dave, for an unforgettable day.

 

Wedding Breakfast

I was set-up on the balcony for the wedding breakfast. So for the during the meal I could see feel what was going on. I could also monitor the sound levels which was especially important for the speeches.  No point having some well written words and nobody could hear them! They had an entrance song of Ho Hey – The Luminare  which was followed by their choice of background music which was a mixture of acoustic songs and Ballads. Once the meal was over everyone went outside, which was when I relocated downstairs for the evening party.

First Dance

Their first dance was the classic Phil Collins – Groovy Kind Of Love . They had their guests join inhalfway through to share the moment. This was then followed by their first song to get the party going which was Jess Glynn – Hold My Hand . And it worked B-| . The dance floor started bouncing straight away and continued throughout the night.

Party Time

Throughout the night we continued with the playlist which consisted mainly of  chart & Indie. Towards the end thou the guests wanted the party classics and we went with it. They then stayed and abused the dance floor for the rest of the night. So I ended up chucking everything from Whitney – Wanna dance  to LMAFO  – Party Rock  to One Night only – Just for tonight .

 

Music & You

 

Finally

I supplied the lemon uplighting, wedding breakfast  and evening DJ music. Tailored to their specific tastes and we had an absolute blast from start to finish.

On the day I turned up nice and early due to Mancunian way being closed, to make sure I had plenty of time to set-up the uplighting / Mood Lighting, test and chill before the couple and their guests arrived.

Once they had arrived we had background music of an acoustic / rock feel, then after the meal and chill time I upped the tempo a little. Not before long everyone was itching to get dancing so Laura & Hani moved the cake cutting forward so everyone could get on partying the night away.

The couples first dance was lovely Photograph by Ed Sheeran . This was just for the 2 of them so they could enjoy the spotlight for the last time of the day.

This meant the floor was full once the party music started B-|

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

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. 😀

As mentioned there was a request from the happy couple to play some songs for the families. They supplied me with a selection to choose from prior to the evening. Off we went around 11 clock playing some french songs to start with. These were whole heartily embraced and danced to including Richi e Poveri – Sara Perche Ti Amo among others. For the guests from Naples there was only the one song but what a song. Nessun Dorma – The 3 Tennors . It really made a nice change to do a 20/30 minute set of different songs.

I also supplied and installed the Teal uplighing around the perimeter of the venue, along with the white fairy lighting up the pillars. The coloured uplighting looked fabulous around the open brickwork walls. And the pillars, with help from my fairy lights,  really came to life instead of being big tubes of grey in the middle of the room. Basically the room looked great. But hey I would say that, but so did the Bride & groom – read the review above 🙂

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.

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. But off we went on musical journey hitting some usual places and not so usual places. 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 🙂

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding DJ

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding DJ

This blog follows my day for a wedding I did in December 2015 for an all day wedding at The Midland Hotel in Manchester city center. I have performed here many many times as a wedding DJ and this was the third time I had performed my all day service here. My all day service consists of wedding ceremony music, wedding breakfast  and evening reception. I also provided the uplighting at this wedding as well. So without further a do lets get on to the pictures and info…

Background to the day.

Initial contact was made in April 2014, and initially the happy couple where only interested in my wedding DJ services. We had a meeting and after leaving them to make their own mind up the initial deposit and confirmation of the booking was made in  May 2014. Around June 2015 I get a call from the brides Dad, that they had been left unimpressed with some other service suppliers and how much for the uplighting and the wedding breakfast service. This was agreed and added to the package closely followed by the Ceremony.

The Ceremony

Wedding Ceremony Midland hotel Manchester

Wedding Ceremony Midland hotel Manchester

I left my house at 7am, went to my unit to load up and do any last minute prep, and then I arrived at The Midland at 9am to start seting-up. 1st thing was to set-up the wedding breakfast set-up and uplighting. Once done, it was over to the Stanley Suite to set-up a sound system for the ceremony.  This is the moment for the groom. He’s the one waiting for the bride and can get nervous so this is why I offer to play his music to help keep him chilled and relaxed.

Groom-best-men-midland-hotelBrides Mother Midland HotelBridesmaids Midland hotel Wedding Ceremony The Midland Hotel

Wedding Breakfast

Wedding Breakfast Midland Hotel

Wedding Breakfast Midland Hotel

The wedding breakfast service consists of making announcements if required, entrance songs, background during the meal, and in larger rooms, wireless microphones for the speeches.  As a surprise for the groom (super hero fan) the bride had arrange for the Superman theme to played as they where announced in the room. This put a rather large smile on his face. This is what I’m talking about when I mention making moments. The Uplighting was left on to add a bit of colour to the room throughout the day. White cloth on my DJ booth, and split my speakers apart so bigger spread of music without having to turn the volume too loud. It’s the little things right? As no one wants to see pictures of people eating, I have included some images of the uplighting all taken for the wedding breakfast, and a few other items for ideas…

Evening Reception

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding DJ

Midland Hotel Manchester Wedding DJ

The bride and groom didn’t want a 1st dance, so after some background music while the evening guests arrived we kicked on to party time. There online music playlist consisted of around 100 songs of various genres meaning plenty for everyone.  The idea being that we played much of the list for everyone followed by more Urban / Rap selection for the last hour or so specifically for happy couple. So all in all a great day and night for a really lovely couple.

Just a note, buy the time I’d packed up and got home it was 3.30am  – so a nice 20 hour day. Love my job 😀

Can not fault David. ..so warm and friendly….we had an amazing night…he did exactly what we asked for …thank you David from a very happy couple xx

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.

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.

David Lee.
