A weekend of local gigs concluded on Sunday evening at Turkey Mill for Lisa & Nick’s special day.
The couple had booked the Creative Mood Lighting package so we were down in the orangery mid morning to set up the purple uplighters before returning to set up the disco equipment at around 630pm.
It had been a mixed day weather wise for the newlyweds with periods of bright warm sunshine with occasional heavy showers, but when I caught up with the groom on our arrival it was clear that everyone had had a fantastic day at the Maidstone venue and looking forward to the evening.
With the purple uplighters already in place, we set up the booth with a couple of moving head plinths, lazer, barrel effects and a couple of jellydomes which give off a mirrorball effect on the ceiling. Fortunately at Turkey Mill the use of haze is allowed and it set off the light show perfectly.
We have blogged about this venue several times previously but just to emphasise that if you are booking us to play at this venue you certainly will always get a top lightshow thanks to the use of haze, the uplighters enhance the room even further and you can book the white starlit floor option through the venue. The correct speaker placement right up against the wall with the subs angled into the middle of the floor provides a great feel on the dancefloor, we aways use a 3k rig here as its quite a large room, quality sound is aimed to the dancing area and although there is a good level of music throughout the room there is plenty of scope for conversation away from the dance floor itself.
With 3 gigs on this weekend, it was our last big weekend of the year until the Christmas season starts in December, we are out every week in November but at the moment only on average once a week, it doesnt feel that long ago that I was welcoming the start of yet another great year of weddings back at the start of 2013 and already we are on the verge of the Christmas season and the annual Kent Wedding Awards which are just around the corner in a couple of weeks.
Big thanks also to Nick for voting for us following the wedding for the National Wedding Industry Awards whilst on honeymoon in Mauritius, the regional award winners are due to be announced at the start of November with finals night in London in January.
This evening was a mix of pretty much everything accommodating all the guests which ranged from Motown, Disco, Rock, 80s & 90s Pop, to Garage, Latest Charts and R&B, the evening had it all and ended once again in great fashion at this very popular venue. I have been here so many times and the atmosphere, music and guests never fail to contribute towards a great evening, massive congratulations to Lisa and Nick, we wish you a fantastic honeymoon and great first Christmas together, all the best for the future to you both.
Next weekend we are in Surrey for Tracey & Marks wedding before kicking off November at Oakwood House, check back soon for more news and reviews.
