At East Anglian Discos we are highly experienced working in Marquees in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambs & Herts.
A large number of these functions are for wedding receptions but we also do a number for parties and school proms.
Marquees will either be attached to or in the hotel grounds such as The Old Hall Ely and Dunston Hall Norwich or located in private grounds.
This brief article is aimed at answering questions clients ask us to ensure a truly memorable occasion!
What access & space is required?
We are happy to visit the location of your marquee beforehand see the space and access available.
We can adapt the space available to suit you. We recommend a minimum width of 3 meters and depth of 2 meters. We are flexible on height, but bear in mind that frequently the sides of the marquee are lower than the middle!
Another space consideration is what we call ‘The Flow of Your Day’. Often in Marquee weddings, the room is the focal point of the day covering both afternoon and evening receptions. If space permits, we normally recommend setting up the disco early before guests arrive. This saves times and gives you total flexibility such as starting the music early or later if desired. You also have the option of having music played through the wedding breakfast which is an increasingly popular addition.
Power is usually provided by the venue either by cable from the venue usually via extension cable or by a generator.
We would recommend that clients ensure that power consumption is adequate for your requirements i.e. caterers, internal lighting and of course us! We require two 13 Amp sockets. We always happy to liaise with the venue/marquee supplier should you required.
Mood lighting always looks fantastic in a marquee, and gives the evening the extra ‘wow’ factor. We can also match the colour to suit wedding colour these.
As your wedding DJ or function DJ, will would be delighted to advise you further.
The cost of adding mood lighting starts from only £50.
Working With Bands & Other Entertainers
We frequently work alongside other professionals such as bands, solo artistes and magicians. We are happy to liaise with them to ensure everything.
