More than just a DJ

Wedding DJ Kentwell Hall for Matt and Georgia

September 13, 2014

Matt and Georgia planned a grand and ambitious affair at Kentwell Hall and I am delighted to say that we pulled it off - "absolutely brilliant", the words of the bride herself.  We were asked to transform a working stableyard into a venue fit for a wedding reception.  Our pre event consultation really paid off as we developed a great mutual understanding of what was requried and how it was going to be delivered.

 

The stableyard has some great features, for example, beautiful woodwork, textured brickwork etc and the plan was to use mood lighting in particular, against those features, to add a different and appropriate ambience to each area i.e. bar, DJ, lounge etc.  Also in the DJ area in particular, we utliised the enclosed space using uplit totems, see below, to light the roofspace plus create a dynamic effect both within and without.

To give you an idea of the working stableyard this is what it normally looks like

And this is what it became - the 'lounge' area - soft, warm, realxing colours.

The bar area using yellow to create a more dynamic and active feel.

At the time of the evening reception Matt and Georgia, hot from the fireworks display, came straight on to the First Dance, dancing to their very own mash up of favourite tunes.  They put on some great choreography, including a couple of drops, and a lift to shoulder height!  Look at this!

From thereon we had a great evening's dancing (see the full playlist below), with a busy, and sometimes mad, dance floor.  

 

We enjoyed a Baywatch routine - wash boards to the ready!  The ladies had a treat!
