Wedding Disco at Dodford Manor, Northamptonshire

Monday, March 10th, 2014

At the weekend I provided a wedding disco package at Dodford Manor in Northamptonshire. The venue is a series of converted barns and has a modern feel about it. Speaking to the manager it has been open only 2 years. This was my first time at the venue.

Location-Near Dodford, Northamptonshire
Travel Time –  50 minutes travel time.
Setup time – 45 Mins.
Space for full setup? – Yes,
Smoke Machine – No
Lighting – Could be switched off or dimmed.
Noise / Sound Limiter – Yes
Layout – Bar in a different room to the disco
Staff – Organised and Helpful.

Other Comments – Nice venue, the sound limiter is set quite low but this is due to the neighbouring houses. I did have to play a bit quieter than I usually would and it is quiet in the bar area around the corner away from the speakers. The setup was close to the door so means I can trim a little off the usual setup time.

Here are the comments from Paul who was the groom below. I also had some great comments from the guests on the night, one of which who I believe was into DJ’ing himself said “It is a refreshing change to hear a wedding DJ who can actually mix!” For those that don’t know this means I am able to blend the music together in a way that has maximum flow, minimal change of tempo and therefore the dancing continues from one track to the next as the songs I select do not jump around genres and tempos too much.

Hi Adam,

Thanks so much for last night, great job – everyone loved it!

A few sore heads today, mind you!

Cheers,

Paul

In August this year I provided disco services for a wedding at Fawsley Hall in Northamptonshire. This is a really pleasent facility for weddings. disco The setup was quite straight forward with access that didn’t affect the guests as it was the opposite end to the bar and where they would vacate the room during turn around.
