Fiona & Terry had their dream wedding recently in Slovenia, so this was the after party back in the UK for family and friends before the newleyweds jetted off from Heathrow the following morning to Thailand.
Stockley Pines Golf Club is a fairly large long room with glass walls on three sides, it has its own bar and dancefloor which is a decent size located at the left hand end of the room as you enter the suite. Fiona had booked some additional uplighters, we set these to pink and purple which definately added something a bit extra to the environment, I remember being outside after parking the van and looking up at the room and thinking how effective all the lighting looked. We were also able to use the haze machine in small doses throughout the night to set all the disco lighting off.
Fiona looking stunning in full bridal attire arrived with Terry around 7pm, the groom then set up a projector screen to show off their wedding photos taken from their intimate wedding which looked like an incredibly beautiful location. They were probably one of the most stunning collection of wedding photos I have ever seen, if your reading this Fiona then we would love to hear the actual location and it would be great if you could send us one or two to show off on this blog.
For DJ’s reading this review there is no sound limiter inside the venue but the access isn’t all that straight forward. If your in a car or small’ish van you should be able to get fairly near to the entrance door but its very tight as you have to reverse up a pathway from the car park, but if its a larger vehicle then you will have to walk the equipment from the car park up to the venue which could take some time so leave yourself plenty of additional time and take a roadie with you especially if you are installing subs or a big lighting rig. Once you get into the venue there are a further two flights of stairs leading upto the room on the first floor, however their is a disabled lift which could be used.
Following the initial meet and greet and ensuing buffet the party kicked off during the last couple of hours with a selection of Irish tracks which Fiona had pre-selected for her guests and the night finished on a high with some Latest Charts sounds.
We wish Fiona and Terry all the best for a safe and happy honeymoon to a part of the world hit by a devastating typhoon only last week and as mentioned we’d love to hear more about your original stunning wedding location. Our best wishes also extend to one poor chap at the end of the night who went crashing down the stairs, we hope he made a full recovery after what looked like a nasty fall as we were packing up.
Next week we are back for our second visit to The Elvetham on the Surrey/Hampshire borders for Nina and Nicholas’s wedding, more photos and reviews to follow shortly as we approach a busy wedding Christmas season.
