Marquee Wedding Celebration Event Richards Castle Wedding DJ Ludlow Shropshire July 2018
Saturday 21st July 2018 saw me provide Wedding DJ services for Amanda and Simon in a marquee located on the outskirts of Richards Castle Nr Ludlow on the Shropshire / Herefordshire border. This event was to celebrate there wedding a few weeks earlier abroad. It was another magnificent evening, following another warm and sunny day. I arrived early to setup at just after 5pm with a scheduled start time of 7pm and a finish at 12:30am. Amanda and Simon also had a fabulous band playing two, one-hour sets.
My first DJ set started at 7pm for guest arrival and was as a warm up set prior to the band starting, they did a 45-minute set followed by me doing a 30-minute set and they then did their final 45 minutes and at the end of this I did the remainder through to the end of the night.
Unusually we had one issue at the start of my third set when the band were packing away their sound engineer decided not to check cables and while packing away cut all the power to my equipment causing all the sound and lighting to go off! I explained to him that he should always track back cables especially when working with others and not just assume that it’s ok to pull all the plugs out! I was not very impressed with him as the equipment I use should be shut down correctly and not just have the power pulled.
