No photograph can offer you a true “feel” of a party or event, however, it can show you what a “Mobile disco” set up looks like, or at least, what one of mine looks like.

Set Up’s

The wedding disco is a very personal thing, many of my set ups have been chosen by the bride to suit the venue, the couple’s individuality or a theme.

NEW for 2013 - bespoke booths

As “Shabby chic” shows no signs of going away and retro styling is becoming the big 2013-14 wedding must have, the designer DJ booth provides an easy way to fully personalise your wedding disco. This Old Time Radio inspired creation in ivory is also available in black and also as a bespoke item for your wedding or corporate logo, lead time is about a month from design to disco and prices start at less than the cost of the bespoke invitations.

Tidy Equipment.

A Mobile discotheque is a functional item and yet, with just a little thought, it can be made into something that not only fits in with the theme of the room, but enhances it or it required, completely changes it. You shouldn’t be paying extra for a themed mobile discotheque and you shouldn’t be putting up with a building site in the corner of the room.


Whilst we set up the equipment we will strive to be presentable, during the evening we will be suitably attired. Jeans and t shirts, sportswear and pullovers, designer or otherwise are not going to enhance your event experience and you won’t see either myself or my staff wearing them.

Daytime Set up

Quite often the equipment will need to be set up hours before the party starts, you don’t want a DJ and his “mate” lugging equipment past your guests and yet you don’t want an industrial pile of equipment in the corner of the room for the wedding photographs. The visual appeal of the set up is therefore essential both at night and during the day when it isn’t in use.

Controlled Dancefloor lighting.

Is there really anything worse than the room being flooded with beams and strobes for that beautiful first dance. Does a bride truly look at her best with a red laser dot on her nose or is a speech improved by the presence of strobe lighting?

I don’t think so either, I’ll tailor the light show to the event and also to the current situation, mood spotlights for the first dance, strobes and lasers for the throbbing dancefloor.

Room Uplighting.

Really comes into it’s own with partially wood panelled rooms and very pale rooms. Modern advances mean that LED powered lights run cold on very little electricity and can offer a choice of about 2 million colours or shades with the option of changing colour as the evening progresses. Invite guests into the room with a cool white in summer or hot pink for the winter, then for the first dance fade to a deep rich blue to show off the dress. All the effort is in the preparation to make the evening transitions seem magical.
