On Saturday 7th of December we had the pleasure of providing a wedding DJ, Room Up-lighting and Dry Ice for the wedding reception of Mr & Mrs Wooldridge, who had hired a professional DJ at the beautiful Arley House & Gardens wedding venue.
Situated within the grounds of Arley Arboretum, the purpose built wedding venue is situated in Arley, Worcestershire. The whole estate includes Upper Arley, along the banks of the River Severn towards Bewdley in one direction and Bridgnorth in the other. It has over 1600 acres of woodland, stunning countryside, as well as the beautiful walled gardens of Arley Arboretum.
It has lovely spring flowers and amazing amazing autumn colours. You will find Jersey cows, sheep, peacocks, alongside the tranquil river Severn views. Visit the ancient church, the local village public house, as well as houses and cottages. Arley is one of Worcestershire’s most beautiful hidden treasures.
Completed in May 2018 the refurbishment and remodelling of Arley House, which sits in prime position in the Arley Estate, has seen it transformed into a purpose built wedding venue, making it the a great choice couples who would like a real secluded luxury wedding venue in Worcestershire.
The evening started with guests from bridgnorth shropshire and across the west midlands arriving and greeting the new Mr & Mrs Wooldridge. Whilst the disk jockey played a lovely mix of easy listening background wedding music, guests explored the amazing wedding venue and had some light refreshment looking forward to the evening ahead.
The evening officially started with guests surrounding the dance floor for the cutting of the cake. As the dj started the countdown, the wedding photographer and videographer captured the moment of this important formal part of the wedding reception.
The Disc jockey formally announced and welcomed the bride and groom to come onto the dancefloor for there first dance as husband and wife.
"It is always an honour and a privilege to welcome the bride and groom onto the dance floor to do their first dance as husband and wife. If you could all be upstanding and give a huge round of applause for the brand new Mr & Mrs Wooldridge"
The bride and groom entered the floor to cheers and rapturous applause from the wedding party guests. The wedding dj played the first dance, Altantic Star - Always, an absolute 1980's classic slow jam.
The DJ lowered a basket full of dry ice pellets in the dry ice hire machine and filled the floor with a romantic, amazing low lying fog. The bride and groom could danced on a bed of clouds whilst the guests looked on in amazement. On the outskirts of the dancefloor, children either sat quietly amazed at the dry ice smoke effect or were pretending to be swimming in the clouds. Dry Ice Hire is additional extra to the wedding DJ service offered by Blue Diamond Entertainment.
Arley House has an amazing built in Bose speaker system, the DJ doesn't need to bring any speakers to the venue just plug into the house system which will play the music in fantastic quality throughout the whole building including the grounds, corridors, reception room and toilets. The venue also has an amazing built lighting system with moving heads, lasers, led strip lighting and up-lighting in the grounds.
On this occasion the wedding DJ from Blue Diamond Entertainment was Paul Hickey, he added to the venue lighting with a small professional white wedding disco hire set up including white moving heads, a star cloth booth and some led strip sticks. He also added 8 room uplighters set to the groom colour scheme which was red as well as providing the dry ice machine for the first dance.
Using our online event planner system the bride and groom had chosen a small but very effective playlist of suggestions for the DJ to play which included some Pop, Party, Indie, Disco, Dance and Rnb from a few different decades. The DJ added to the list with a perfect selection to keep the dancefloor busy all night.
The bride had requested to do a dance with her father later in the evening. At a convenient time the wedding DJ did the formal announcement and the bride and father of the bride took to the floor for a special and lovely dance to Westlife - Butterfly Kisses, a lovely song choice for this occasion.
The evening finished really well with the DJ organising the wedding march archway followed by the requested "Must Play" Frank Sinatra - New York New York.
