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.

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.

Wedding Dj

Great Fosters

Amateurs are less invested in their performance than a wedding professional.

The amateur DJ is doing it “for fun,” and if something goes wrong, it’s not a big deal. A wedding dj, on the other hand, risks his entire reputation and livelihood with every performance. One bad review can destroy his business and he knows it.

At one wedding, the DJ brought along his wife and newborn. Their table was littered with McDonald’s bags and his wife decided to breastfeed the baby during dinner.

Would you rather have an entertainer who is 100% invested in his business and performance on your wedding day or someone who does it as a hobby?

A wedding is a unique event that requires the skills and experience of a wedding specialist for a smooth, flawless ceremony and reception.

It’s about more than just playing music. Your wedding DJ is responsible for coordinating the timeline, orchestrating the introduction and flow of events, working with your other vendors, managing the guests, reading the crowd and making sure the right song is played at just the right time.

Even a wedding DJ who is quite experienced in the club setting will be at a loss because she simply isn’t familiar with the flow of events and how to prevent disasters when something goes awry.

One inexperienced DJ mistakenly announced a special dance with the bride and her grandfather because he forgot to update his notes. The entire family started crying because Grandpa had passed away two weeks earlier.

Are you willing to place the outcome of your wedding in the hands of someone who doesn’t “do” weddings for a living?

Your guests won’t dance without an experienced entertainer who can read the crowd and keep the momentum going.

You have to play the right songs at the right time and in the right order to maintain dancing. Oftentimes, the mood changes and your entertainer needs to change the program to maximize the dancing along the way.

If she can’t mix from one song to another, you’ll have gaps of “dead air” or awkward rhythms that will frustrate your guests and clear the floor.

Many couples think that providing an amateur with a set list of songs they love will be enough to make a fun wedding. It’s not. You need someone with experience to work with your requests and what your guests are responding to in order to avoid an empty dance floor.

One bride regrets hiring her DJ because he played “Unforgettable” five times during the wedding because he didn’t know any other slow songs.

Are you willing to sacrifice the fun at your wedding to save money on a cheaper DJ?
