Originally a 14C monastery located in the wilds of the Suffolk Heritage Coast, Butley Priory is now a fairy-tale wedding and events venue.
We are very proud to have a great working relationship with the entire team, working closely with them for many years, providing our hire service for the client’s weddings and private events. We are a personally recommended supplier for both wedding DJ’s and lighting hire.
- Dreamwave DJ Services
One of our DJ’s can be booked to arrive and entertain you and your guests for your evening party in the marquee or main house. Whether you require the classic wedding party; a modern and funky alternative; or your own twist on the proceedings we will make sure that’s what will happen. All our DJ’s are experienced at filling the dancefloor and creating a fun atmosphere. Your DJ will play the correct style of music to suit the time of night along with reading the dancefloor and playing your selection of must plays. They also steer well clear of anything you really don’t want played. They know how to party!
We have 6 DJ’s in our team and more information about each of them and their styles can be found on our Blog ‘Spotlight On’.
The Evening DJ & Lighting Hire Package
Your DJ will set up their decks and booth in the marquee, next to the dance floor. This is generally in the morning prior to your arrival into the marquee to avoid setting up after your wedding breakfast. He will then arrive back in to time entertain for your evening party. You can choose the look of this to be our signature ‘Decks on show’ set-up. This really brings the DJ into the party. Or should you require a more classic look, we have the traditional DJ booths available in black and white.
Also included in this package is: A wash of up lighting, positioned along the wall behind the DJ area to add extra colour and style. Two moving disco effects that project onto the dance floor, to add to the atmosphere while you are all dancing, and of course a PA speaker system for your DJ to play through.
For a more complete DJ service you may wish to consider our DJ Day Package. This allows your DJ to play throughout your wedding breakfast and be on hand with a wireless microphone for speeches during the day, then continue in the night for the evening party.
Other DJ Options
Cocktail DJ Service – Ideal for your afternoon drinks reception. Your DJ will set up a small PA system and his decks on the lawn area, then DJ to suit the mood you wish to create. From classic summer time chill-out to down tempo live lounge versions of songs.
DJ Equipment Hire – We can provide the hire of equipment, if you are having a celebrity DJ or friend for you party, from our extensive hire stock. We can fulfill any DJ’s rider, stocking industry brands such as Pioneer, QSC and DAP.
- Dreamwave Lighting & Decor Services
Enhancing such a stunning venue is what we do best. We have compiled packages of lighting and décor services that complement the marquee and grounds. We have made it easy for you to look at the services we offer for the different locations around the venue by producing a designated online pricing brochure.
In the meantime, here are some ideas to get your creative thoughts flowing…
Some great looks for this area can be our awesome fairy lights. This effect looks stunning during the day and really comes to life for the evening party. We use a nice warm glowing LED that adds a sparkle to the marquee.
A popular design choice we have come up with is to create ‘fan shapes’ with the fairy light strings, cascading down from the central poles to the wall edges at each end of the marquee.
Our poseur tables set with LEDs make an added addition to the bar area for your evening guests. These can be set to a colour to suit your wedding theme.
The entrance walkway down to the marquee looks awesome styled with our warm glowing fairy lights or white festoon strings.
If you are looking for a more dramatic statement for your guest’s arrival, why not hire our giant light up LOVE letters for inside the marquee or outside on the lawn for great photo opportunities.
The Sky’s The Limit
This just gives you some inspiration but really the ‘sky’s the limit’ when it comes to lighting and décor for this stunning venue. A full list of services are listed in the brochure, any ideas or concept you may have, drop us a line and we can chat further.
Our hire services have their own dedicated pricing brochures that can be viewed on the links below. They can be booked in conjunction with each other, or separately. Please contact us for a custom quote and any additional ideas you may have.
We are based less than an hour from Butley Priory. You are more than welcome to come and meet with us prior to any booking at our office premises just east of Colchester in Little Bentley. Here we can discuss your requirements further and have a chat about your day over a coffee or two. If a meeting is inconvenient we would be glad to voice or video call, if this is preferred, to discuss you requirements.
We find this prior planning helps us to find out great information that will ensure the smooth running of your day, plus it gives you peace of mind knowing that an awesome company will be providing you with a great evening’s entertainment and hire services.
‘Our contemporary and professional approach puts us at the forefront of the mind of the modern bride.’
