The Perks of Bruisyard Hall Wedding Fair 2019

See Bruisyard Hall dressed in all it’s wedding day glory on 27th January for Bruisyard Hall Wedding Fair 2019.  The opportunity doesn’t often arrive to view this breathtaking venue at the weekend.  It quickly gets snatched up by prospective Brides and Grooms.

The day begins at 11am and ends at 3pm and if you would like to attend, you need to pre-register online.

Bruisyard Hall Wedding Fair 2019 – The Wedding Venue

Bruisyard Hall is a magnificent 14th century country house nestled in 700 acres of Suffolk countryside.  A small intimate wedding is perfect within the idyllic setting of the house, holding up 24 people.  The venue is also set up for larger scale affairs at the impressive refurbished barn.  Nearest and dearest can then retreat back to the luxurious accommodation within the house after enjoying tantalizing cuisine and dancing the night away to tunes played by one of our elite Dreamwave DJ’s.

“Our wedding fair provides an opportunity for us to share the warmth and character that resonates from this magnificent estate as our guests mingle with suppliers and enjoy making plans for their special day.”

Drinks Reception Entertainment and Music for your Wedding

You have just got married and can now officially change your Facebook status!… It’s now time for the your Drinks Reception.  I think most people want their Drinks Reception to be chilled and fun.  After all, t’s the first informal part of the wedding day where the wedding party can have a drink and a good natter post ceremony.  Guests can take a sip of their prosecco, enjoy their surroundings whilst chilling out to fabulous Drinks Reception Entertainment.

Drinks Reception Entertainment

How to choose the perfect Drinks Reception Entertainment to reflect your afternoon vision

What is going to keep your guest engaged whilst the wedding party are off modelling for your perfect wedding shots?  Who will be able to play the right style of music your looking for and generate the desired atmosphere?

Cocktail DJ for the Cocktail Hour

So, the classic option are Harpists, acoustic guitarists, jazz singers, saxophonists and string quartets.  But what if you want Drinks Reception Entertainment that’s a little bit different?  Our Cocktail DJ Service offers just that.  Have a DJ play your choice of music at suitable background level using a small, discreet and clean set up that wont distract whilst your guests mingle.  Your Dreamwave DJ can play anything you choose including Acoustic, Hed Kandi, Blues, Ibiza chilled and Jazz to name a few.  I myself like the sound and tempo of acoustic versions of popular songs.  Personally, I think the musical flexibility of the Cocktail DJ Service  is an absolute gem as it allows you to play any genre you fancy at a reasonable price.  You could even up the level further by having him perform alongside a live saxophonist!

Drinks Reception Music on a Budget?

I always wish my purse had free refills! Weddings can certainly prove expensive and not every Bride and Groom can afford live entertainment for the whole day.  To me, an obvious saving can be made by putting together your own play list and plug it into either the venue’s PA system or hire one.  The disadvantage of this is that you wont have a live entertainer to captivate the Drinks Reception audience.  But this is a great option for those on a stricter monetary allocation.

Another option is to look at extending your entertainment from the Wedding Ceremony for a couple of hours.  This will most likely prove far cheaper than hiring separate musicians.

Music is not the only option……

Magicians

I have seen these at a number of weddings I have attended recently to keep the guests smiling.

Entertainment for Children

If your inviting children to your wedding, look to avoid bored little people by hiring a face painter or balloon modeller.

Lawn Games

Giant lawn games are a classic option to charm your wedding guests.

Lighting

Enhance your sought after atmosphere by adding lighting and décor.  Additional lighting is fantastic for an Evening Drinks Reception.  Options include Fairy Lighting, Lanterns, Festoon Lighting and LED Candles.

Your Wedding – First Dance Ideas

First Dance Ideas

First Dance – The Ultimate Conundrum!

Dreamwave Events has put together some of the best and most popular first dance tracks for weddings to help you decide the perfect start for your evening party.  From classic, alternative to modern there is something in this list to appeal to everyone’s musical tastes.

Your opening dance of the evening as is something you want to remember and choosing the right tune can be daunting. With millions of potential tracks to choose from, finding the perfect song to celebrate your first dance together as husband and wife can be an overwhelming task.  I am here to help

 

We understand how important your first dance is

We cater for your personal preference when is comes down to your debut performance as a couple! We find some couples have every second accounted for.  We don’t only ask which song you would like played.  We also ask the questions:

  • What time is your first dance?
  • When would you like guests to join is (leave enough time for the photographer to capture your moment!)
  • What song would you like to follow?

Alternatively, we also appreciate that some couples just don’t want the focus on them. Whatever your choice we will make sure we provide the service you envision.

 

How to follow on from your First Dance:

The song choice to follow on from your wedding days first dance can be just as important.   This could be a father/daughter dance, a dance with your close family or you may just want to raise the roof and get straight into the party!

Whichever way you wish your evening wedding party to proceed, your Dreamwave DJ will implement your requests to provide the personal service we pride ourselves on.

Dreamwave DJ’s – Behind the Scenes

Dreamwave DJ Darren Saxby Essex party DJCarina on Dreamwave decks

 Read more about our recent film shoot promoting our Dreamwave DJ Services provided in Essex, Suffolk and surrounding areas for weddings as well as both personal and corporate parties.

 

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s and crew all had a bit of fun in the warehouse a short while ago. We prepared for our new, behind the scenes promotional film.  Laughter and friendly banter was prolific whilst on the road to creating our visionary masterpiece.  Even I had the opportunity to show my budding DJ skills and gave a cracking performance on the decks; but I think I will be sticking to my desk job for at least the near future!

 

 

Spike Grimsey was on form with his exceptional camera techniques to generate artistic snapshots of the guys performing and prepping equipment.  These reflect the great place that Dreamwave Events is to work which truly echoes in the guy’s performances during our Evening DJ Service.

 

If you are looking for experienced DJ’s that emanate confidence and fun whilst maintaining competent professionalism for your Evening Party; these are your guys!

Our team of Dreamwave DJ’s: Paul, Dave, Spike, Martin, George and Darren are all accomplished performers that bring the party! Our Evening Service offers their experience as well as a choice of set up options with different style booths and lighting colour to match the theme of your party.

Dreamwave DJ’s do not only offer DJ Services for the evening. My personal favourite is our Cocktail DJ Service, offering a tasteful alternative for an afternoon drinks reception.  Our DJ’s adjust their performance to mirror the relaxed atmosphere.  This is accompanied by a small discreet set up with appropriate music played.

Spotlight on a DJ – Being Martin Cooper

Looking for an experienced family DJ for your wedding, birthday or personal party in Essex or Suffolk – Martin is the guy you want!

Wedding DJ  Spotlight

Whilst prepping his DJ Equipment for a wedding at Hengrave Hall, I briefly distracted him with a coffee to chat about the party he was about to bring:

  • What services are you prepping for?

I’m loading up my DJ gear ready to provide evening DJ entertainment. I’m leaving soon to arrive in time to set up whilst they are eating their wedding breakfast.  A quick change and then I’ll start.

  • What’s the playlist like you have for tonight?

After their first dance they have asked to go straight into the party, but initially want some familiar family tunes for their children to enjoy before their eye lids become too heavy. Later I plan to play music through the decades as requested by the couple. They have said they are happy for me to use my experience to read the crowd.  They just want the dancefloor full! The bride and groom has sent us some awesome tracks to work from. I’ve got a bit of everything from Stevie Wonder and Motown to some 90’s pop like Backstreet Boys.

  • So, what is the first dance?

I have been asked to play “All of Me” by John Legend, a popular choice right now.  Then I think I will move onto the new Bruno Mars track as it’s just so catchy and fun.

  • And the song to finish the evening? 

They’ve chosen their last dance to be “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen, a real party classic.

 

Martin has been with us since Dreamwave started sprouting roots in 2009 and his good judgement of music choice from reading the crowd only comes from experience making him the accomplished DJ he is today. His musical prowess and knowledge gained from DJing since he was teenager will make sure you never stop dancing! We are thrilled to call him a member of our team.

What have we been up to…

As we now head into March and 2013 is in full swing, here at Dreamwave we have had a busy couple of months getting ready for the season ahead.

The biggest news is that we have a new DJ! We are very excited to welcome Chris to the team, he has great skills and a passion for entertaining. New DJ Chris

We owe a massive thank you to our great friends Craig & Kate for taking the time out to shoot our new DJ promo pictures. We have gone vintage this year with a ‘Class of 2013’ school year book theme. We took Craig back to his roots and tried to be as authentic as possible with the use of an actual school photo backdrop 🙂 The shoot was great fun even though it was freezing in the warehouse in mid-January.Dreamwave Class of 2013

We have expanded our hire stock and can now offer festoon lighting hire. These look fantastic with a vintage and retro theme. We can create your desired look with these festoon strings, they can be draped around a room or sets hung outside around a BBQ or seating area. We can even create walkways leading your guests up in your  marquee or venue. Please contact us for a custom quote and to find out more about our indoor and outdoor lighting options for hire.Festoon Lighting Hire Essex, Suffolk

And lastly it is construction time here at the moment with the expansion of our warehouse in process to allow for a much larger new office space.
