It isn’t very often that you get to work at a wedding venue in Wales as nice as Glangrwyney Court.
On the 6th April 2013, I got that opportunity. I had previously met with Laura and Rich at the Bear Pub in Crickhowell for our client meeting. While there we discussed the plans for the day and the way in which I would be able to provide my services to make their wedding day even better. I was keen to provide wedding DJ services for Laura and Rich as I knew how nice a venue Glangrwyney Court is (I have previously performed there in 2012 http://www.desiredisco.com/matt-alexs-wedding-glangrwyney-court-crickhowell-010912/ ).
Rich and Laura were a lovely couple and had great taste in music. The artists and songs they were mentioning all put a smile on my face and I knew exactly what they were after. They required the use of wireless microphones for speeches as they held their wedding breakfast in a marquee, this was set up prior to the guests arrival:
The waiter and waitress service was provided by Maids and Bulters who did an excellent job laying out the tables in preparation for the wedding breakfast and attending to the hungry wedding guests while they dined.
While the guests were in the marquee, I quickly set up the evening entertainment area in the Glangrwyney Court Barn. This was my first time performing in the barn so I was looking forward to it. I set up uplighting both inside and outside to create a beautiful welcome entrance for the guests as they transitioned from the marquee to the barn. Here is what awaited them:
At 9 O’clock on the dot, the ushers did what ushers do and ushered the guests from the marquee up to the Glangrwyney Court Barn. As they arrived they were greeted by my lovely lighting and some early 90′s house – as requested by Rich. Unlike the majority of weddings across the country, there was no actual first dance to start the night off so the evening began with a couple of requests. The guests helped themselves to drinks at the bar and the evening got underway. I then proceeded to play a mix of music from 90′s dance and house, to indie, chart, hip-hop and motown. The night went amazingly and everyone had a great evening, so many happy people under one roof was a great sight to see.
Congratulations to both Rich and Laura, you and your guests were fantastic, I couldn’t have hoped for a better group to DJ for. Enjoy your honeymoon and I wish you all the very best and hope to see you at one of your friend’s weddings!
