Wedding Reception Disco in Glasgow
Bellahouston Park set the stage on the 29th March 2012 for Nicola & Bruce Noble’s Wedding. They had their wedding reception in the House for an Art Lover, a Charles Rennie Mackintosh building which is a spectacular cultural attraction in Glasgow.
I arrived about 5.30pm and set up in the usual corner.. it is very cramped so you have to be as compact as possible, and you have a row of tables in front of you between the disco and the dance floor… Not ideal, but we play with what we have..!! I normally use just the one speaker and place it close to the wall. Having a second tripod on the other side could be a trip hazard blocking the entrance to the hall so I just go with the one speaker.. it’s loud enough…!! It makes me more approachable too, with nothing in the way people can come up and ask for requests easily.
I started playing background music as the wedding quests started coming in to the hall, they seemed to be in a party mood as some of them were dancing away already. So I eventually got to meet Nicola and Bruce… we had a quick chat, agreed formalities and I announced the couple up for the first dance, Coldplay – Us Against the World.. Everyone else was asked to join in and the night got started.
During the night we had a bit of ceilidh, Rock, Pop, Motown, and everything else… We even had a song from the Groom to his wife.. Yes, Bruce brought his guitar along and I set up a microphone for him. It was really special.
Everyone was thanking me for a great night when they left and Bruce came up to me straight after the last song to say thank you… Nicola was over the moon and said the night was everything she could have wanted.
Anyway their off now to find a last minute deal for a honeymoon, cases packed ready to go… so I hope they get a good one..?
Mr & Mrs Noble, thanks for booking my services for your night, hopefully we will meet again at the next family party..?
Were you there..? If so please feel free to leave the happy couple a message to read.?
