Wedding at Woburn Sculpture Gallery

Monday, August 11th, 2014

Woburn Sculpture GalleryAt the weekend I was back doing a wedding disco at Woburn Sculpture Gallery. I have done many discos there now but this one was different. They decided to add an additional dance floor at the temple end of the room and allow the band and myself as the DJ to play down the room rather than across it. I have been wanting to do this for years at the Sculpture Gallery so was excited to try it out.

Every party is different and what works for one set of guests one night can completely flop the next night so it is hard to judge the difference in the layout. However I definitely feel the night was a hit and more people danced than would have with the normal setup position. As the music was playing at the tables it felt like the whole room was more involved in the function. It also meant the lighting could remain bright at one end for the evening buffet and darker on the dance floor without and cross over. The laser light also went all the way down the room which looked really good compared to the short distance it would usually travel across the room. It also eliminated the “dead space” usually with the DJ in the middle of the room the whole temple end is wasted space and serves no purpose.

 

 

Woburn Sculpture GalleryOver all I think this change was a success and I would recommend it where possible. Although I had setup early in the day as is usual for this venue I believe you could setup later in the day if using this layout as the disturbance at the far end is minimal whilst guests are eating etc. Therefore if you did want to use the space after hosting the actual wedding in this space I believe you could with minimal disruption.
