• Eltham Lodge, London

Great Celebration for Sam and Jacob

Sam and Jacob wanted to make a splash for themselves and their guests at Eltham Lodge for their wedding celebration. Eltham Lodge is a very grand venue on its own but with a little colour and a few extras it can be transformed even further into a glamorous and splendid arena for a once in a lifetime event. To this end and as part of my Classic evening only entertainment service I supplied:

  • starlight DJ booth

  • mood lighting for the bar

  • mood lighting for the dance area

  • sparkling white LED dance floor

Playing meaningful music is vitally important for an inclusive event. Sam and Jacob gave me plenty of music choices, including a couple of South African ones (see full playlist below) as Jacob and his family are from there. Their guests made good use of the online event planner and I was well armed prior to press 'Play'.
