Civil Partnership Reception In Prestwick
Katie & Emma celebrated their Civil Partnership at the Carlton Hotel in Prestwick on the 7th April 2012. The newly Mrs & Mrs Gray were really great to get on with.. I was told that they work in the hospitality so it makes since that they had great people skills. I arrived about 5.30pm and set up on the stage while they were eating their wedding meal.. There was a partition wall that separated the hall in two during the meal which worked a dream.
This was the 1st time that I played in the venue, and I have to say it was a great experience. The staff were very helpful and friendly to talk to. There was a black LED star cloth filling the stage and a black LED dance floor to match.. 6 moving head light effects on the ceiling so I didn’t have to bring in too much lighting. For other DJs reading this the venue has a sound meter; however my 2.2k system at full pelt could not set it off..??
The girls and the staff prompted everyone back in to the hall and I announced the 1st dance. The girls had the song all to themselves and I announced everyone else on to the dance floor. The night went really well, starting off with about 45min ceilidh music with tuition as required and playing all the requests on the night.. I wasn’t supplied a play list but the girls were delighted by the fact they got all their songs played “next track”. We ended the night with “auld land syne” and everyone headed either home of to the residents bar.
The girls are off to Egypt now, so if you were there, please feel free to leave a message for them to read when they get back..
