What can I say about the year 2017 for Dreamwave Events DJ’s and Lighting that hasn’t already been said about the wheel, penicillin or the iPhone! In a nutshell, 2017 has been an incredible year which you will see as I rewind time, look back in wonder and flash on my favourite memorialised moments.
The best place to start is always at the beginning…..
Relationships, Ventures and Features of 2017
Install Division Expands
The Wünderbar at Milsoms Restaurant in Dedham
The terrace at Milsoms in Dedham, Essex has been enclosed so that private parties can exclusively enjoy their own bar and lounging area. Dreamwave Events were asked by Geraldine Milsom to incorporate feature mood lighting and design aspects to set the scene for guests to relax in the unique Wünderbar area. This unique setting available for exclusive hire is the ideal venue small parties; with a bar, leather sofas and then completed with our vintage filament lamps on festoon droplet pendants; this setting is fantastic for cosy dining during those winter months.
