Tipi Weddings Disco Nyts Style

At Disco Nyts we are desperate for summer to kick in! I know it’s only the 15th of January, but still… with all these summer weddings coming in we are starting to imagine that warm sunshine and those long warm evenings.

Following last years introduction of our new handmade rustic booth and our new bespoke tipi package, we have seen a dramatic increase in enquiries for our services.

Having a tipi wedding is, to be frank rather cool. So much so that we work really closely with Country Tipis just so we can attend more of them.

Now… Entertainment

This is where we really know what we are doing. Unlike the majority of companies out there, we understand that putting a bog standard disco just won’t cut it. After all so many couples we meet put so much effort you’ve put into making the venue look incredible why would settle for entertainment that simply doesn’t match.

Our Rustic booth blends in beautifully with any tipi rustic theme by continuing that handmade wooden vibe throughout all elements of our couples day. We don’t stop there our disco lighting is installed above within the tipi hats in order to have minimal impact on the floor of a tipi.  Not only does this give you some amazing lighting effects but also keeps all the modern lighting out of the way and improves the integrity of the rustic vibe going throughout your evening.

Now…..

Live acts, what can we say…… these are simply wicked. From sax players to a full band we offer it all. Our packages are a great way of providing complete entertainment throughout the whole evening

 

Contact us to find out more and let’s get cracking in building a totally unforgettable tipi wedding package for you and your guests to enjoy.

Sopwell House

Sopwell house Cheese board

Sopwell house in based deep in the Hertfordshire countryside, with London virtually on the doorstep, Sopwell House is a hidden sanctuary for those who appreciate comfortable refinement and a real sense of freedom.

Complementing this sumptuous environment, guests will be welcomed by the genuine warmth of our family-run hotel with its dedicated team and a host of sophisticated facilities and services.

Our job was simple, provide great entertainment and transform one of the events room into a fantastic wedding party.

At Disco Nyts we offer a free early setup service to all our customers and Michael and Emma took full advantage of this. Our team went over to Sopwell house into morning and set everything up before a single gust arrived.

Once again we installed our Gold Sparkle Package uplighters and set up the daytime PA we left everything working and ready to wow the guests. The event planner for the day took a real shine to our daytime PA and spent the rest of the setup time dancing around to his music using the Bluetooth option available with our PA systems.

The evening was a great success and was quickly followed by a great review.

In order to help our future bride and grooms, we like to ask our customers about their experiences and what tips they would pass on

Any of other advice you would give to couples thinking of getting married?

“Always meet and talk to your suppliers. When we met Disco Nyts we knew straight away they were the company for us. Sadly we couldn’t meet James earlier due to work and life commitments but we really wish we had. When he went through all the options available and we wanted all of them. Sadly there simply wasn’t enough notice in order to arrange it all.  We honestly have to say Disco Nyts was one of the best companies we dealt with but make sure you be honest with all your suppliers and allow them to suggest some great ideas.

We had a great day and thanks to Disco Nyts for making the party truly unforgettable.

Offley Place Disco

Offley place

Based in between Luton and Hitchin Offley place’s location is simply perfect. Surrounded by the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside Offley Place is a gorgeous 17th century manor house, with a lovely fresh conservatory and acres of garden including a stunning rose garden.

Our job was simple, provide great entertainment and transform the conservatory.

Our Gold Sparkle Package is our most popular package. Perfect for any wedding or event this package combines our stunning gold disco and one of our white LED dance floors and if perfect if you’re looking to add that wow factor this package is perfect for you.

Once we had finished the large installation Emily and Dave (bride and groom) asked us to add our uplighting package to the room and wow did it make a difference. Our uplighting took the room to another level and highlighted the beautiful features of the conservatory.

In order to help our future bride and grooms, we like to ask our customers about their experiences and what tips they would pass on.

Did you have any worries about finding wedding entertainment?

“Yes! Emily was convinced she wanted a DJ, but we were both worried that we would end up with someone who ignored our preferences, or who just played a playlist and didn’t ‘read the room’, or who was cheesy or unprofessional. To me, it was totally different to choosing a photographer/cake maker/florist whose work you can see examples of.

What made you choose Disco Nyts?

We had a look at your website based we immediately liked how professional you looked and sounded. Combine this with how much information there was on your website, and of course, you had great reviews, it was an easy choice. Both via e-mail and in person Faye was really helpful, efficient, and clear.

James and Paul struck a great balance between listening to what we wanted and offering your advice on what works well in your experience. You also offered the Gold Sparkle package along with microphones for speeches and uplighting the room beautifully”.

What a brilliant day – awesome couple, brilliant venue, lovely guests – magic

Here are a few of our fave snaps from the day…

The Ultimate Guide to Wedding Lighting

Venue Uplighting

When it comes to wedding design, wedding lighting is undoubtedly one of the most underrated elements. So, we’re here to remind you just how important lighting really is! It sets the overall mood for your wedding and allows you to show off all the pretty details you’ve spent months thinking about. Plus, you’ll want your guests to be able to properly enjoy their food and the dance floor, and you’ll want your photos to be exquisite. You can’t do any of those things with poor or insufficient lighting! If you’re not sure where to start, don’t know what to ask a lighting designer, or just need some inspiration to fit your wedding style, this handy guide will help you every step of the way.

GET TO KNOW THE LIGHTING LINGO

Before you start looking for lighting ideas or reaching out to vendors for quotes, you’ll want to know these key wedding lighting terms so you’ll know what you (and the pros) are talking about:

Uplighting – lights that are placed on the floor and shine up the walls in various colours

Gobo light – a template that light shines through to create a pattern, monogram, or motif on the floor, ceiling, or wall

Texture lighting – the same as a Gobo light but with a preset pattern, such as leaves or a starry night sky

Spotlight – a lamp that projects a narrow beam of light on one particular area or object

Pinspot – a tiny light used to illuminate a small area, such as a centrepiece on a table

String lights – also referred to as twinkle, fairy, bistro, or cafe lights, these strands of lights are the most versatile and cost-effective way to light up any space

Pendants – also known as drop or suspender lights, these are single fixtures that hang from the ceiling

LED light – a type of bulb that is cost-effective, long-lasting, and provides more vibrant colour than a traditional bulb

Colour wash – a general fill of colour used throughout an entire room that doesn’t highlight any particular area

TIPS FOR INDOOR AND OUTDOOR WEDDING LIGHTING

Indoor Lighting

For an indoor wedding, you’ll need to know what lighting is already in the venue so that you can simply add to it or work around it. Uplighting is great for accentuating architectural features or changing wall colours to match your palette, and colour washing can help create different moods in different rooms throughout the venue. This is where a lighting design pro will be your best friend! They can help figure out what existing fixture will work and what to add to get the look you want.

Outdoor Lighting

For an outdoor wedding, power sources will likely be your biggest roadblock. If you’re getting married at night, you’ll also want to make sure all pathways to the venue, to the parking lot, and to the bathrooms are lit. For a small backyard wedding, you will likely be good with simple string lights in and between trees and votive candles on every table. But, if you’re having a big outdoor celebration in a courtyard or tent, you’ll want to call in the professionals! They might need to bring in generators for more power and will save you the hassle of trying to hang lights in high places.

Finding the perfect Wedding Dj

Kings College Cambridge

1) Establish up front that you are the CLIENT and you are in charge. Let him know if you don’t like a talker. Tell him if he has absolutely no room for independent judgment. If you don’t want to hear a single song that isn’t on your personal playlist, let him know. Lay out the ground rules and don’t be afraid to be a little bit aggressive and put it writing, asking him to acknowledge your requests. Many wedding dj’s prefer you be upfront and direct. Just don’t be rude about it. There’s a way to be demanding without being Bridezilla. Be a little nicer if he’s your only option at the venue.

2) Be very specific about your playlist and, if he doesn’t give you a good form to work with, create your own and include the following categories:

Reception
– Cocktail music pre-entrance
– Entrance song
– First dance song
– Daddy/daughter dance song
– Mother/son dance song
– Cocktail music post-entrance
– Dinner music
– Cake cutting song
– Bouquet/garter toss songs
– Last dance

3) Decide whether you’re going to let the wedding dj take requests or not, and make sure you’re clear on the system with the wedding dj. If you’d prefer he not take requests, you can ask him to tell people that he doesn’t have the music being requested up to a certain point. If somebody gets aggressive, he might have to explain that the bride and groom have requested no spontaneous requests.

4) Be VERY SPECIFIC about your “Do Not Play” list. Those are the songs you really, really don’t want to hear at your wedding. You never know what your friends may request, and you’re better off making sure the wedding dj knows at the outset exactly how you feel about that. Trust me, “We are Family” can be a very awkward music selection in many groups.

5) Get your playlist to your wedding dj as early as possible. Every wedding dj has a different system, and many of them have to pull your playlist from their master systems, especially if you’re getting married somewhere like the tropics where the wedding dj’s might not have the most current systems. Some of them need time to make sure they have all your music ready in time for your wedding. At the very latest, have all song selections to your music master no less than 30 days prior to your wedding date. A full 90 days is even better.
