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.

Once the wedding breakfast was complete our team moved in and started the transformation. Our first job was to build our gold sparkle package

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

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.
