9th November ’13 – Hired to provide my wedding disco services for Jo & Adam Derbyshire’s big day at Haigh Hall in Wigan. Haigh Hall is a grade 2 listed historic country house which makes a great setting for a wedding.
They were celebrating in the Douglas Suite which is the first time I’ve played this upstairs room, lots of character to the suite! As well as my disco lights, they had also hired my uplighters for around the room which really makes a difference, setting the atmosphere nicely.
As a little peripheral entertainment, they booked 2 of our fun casino tables (blackjack & roulette) for guests to play on after the wedding breakfast & through the first hour of the evening reception. Our fun casino hire is really popular for wedding parties!
Throughout the wedding breakfast, they had booked our pianist Tom to play on the piano there which is a really nice touch. Jo, the bride, couldn’t praise him enough, apparently the staff were also suitably impressed as they asked if we could provide him for other events at the Hall.

At approx. 8.45pm, we got the cake cutting & first dance underway. They performed their first dance to Bon Jovi ‘Born to be my baby’. We then invited guests to join in a 2nd dance to Michael Bolton ‘I said I loved you’
Really nice evening, I had various requests on the night, the bride & groom had left it pretty much up to me in terms of music choices, their only requests were some 80’s, a bit of Take That & Steps(!). So, I thought we’d do a finale to ‘Never Forget’!
All the best to Mr & Mrs Derbyshire!
