Photobooth in the midlands – Jen’s 30th birthday celebration

I had the privilege of playing at Jen Pretorius’ 30th over the weekend in the KZN Midlands.  Our Photobooth was a huge hit as always and only good music could drag the crowd away from the Photobooth.

Jen created her own backdrop for the photobooth to match the look and feel of the venue.  This created a unique photobooth experience for her guests.

 

 

 

Scott and Dom @ Bellwood (8 July 2017)

Scott and Dom got married at Bellwood in Nottingham Road on the 8th of July 2017.

Their ceremony was held in the stunning forest ceremony area at Bellwood   Steven Heyns from The Wedding DJ supplied a battery operated PA system with a cordless lapel microphone for the marriage officer, a cordless handheld microphone for readings and an additional mixer and microphone for the live singer who sang the hymn.

 

Pre-drinks Photo booth

We set up our Photo Booth for pre-drinks overlooking the dam.   We also supplied a PA system and microphones for the live band who created the soundtrack for the afternoon.

Wedding Reception

A fantastic celebration followed with dancing late into the night.

Cameron and Bronwen @ St Ives (17 June 2016)

The weather was absolutely perfect for the wedding of Cameron and Bronwen Wright on the 17th of June 2016. Congrats on a stunning celebration.

This was my first time playing at St Ives, and can honestly say that I’m impressed. It’s well worth a visit, see some pics below of the venue.

Nicholas and Ronwyn @ The Glades Farm (10 June 2017)

Congratulations to Nick and Ronwyn who tied the knot at The Glades Farm yesterday. Was great to work with Derryn Schmidt (www.derrynschmidt.com) and James Peters (www.jamespeters.co.za) again.

DJ : Steven Heyns
Venue :  The Glades Farm – Midlands Wedding Venue

Gerhard and Monique’s wedding at The Canelands Beach Club in Ballito

Gerhard and Monique tied the knot at The Canelands Beach Club in Salt Rock.   What a  stunner of a a day, they couldn’t have asked for better weather.

Lots of rock was the order of the day:)   Our Photo Booth was a huge hit as always and everyone joined in the fun.

On another note, I have been to my fair share of beach weddings over the last 20 years and can honestly say that The Canelands Beach Club is the BEST venue for beach ceremonies on the KZN coast (North and South)  Set just off the main beach with 180 degree views of the beach, this one is a winner with easy access for everyone.

JP and Britt’s wedding celebration at The Glades Farm

JP and Britt tied the knot in the Chapel on The Glades Farm in Balgowan on the 22nd of April 2017.   Steven Heyns was the DJ for the wedding and supplied sound in the chapel, outside on the lawn and in the reception.

Steven uses three seperate PA Systems for the three phases of the wedding day (Ceremony , pre-drinks / cocktail hour and the Main reception) to create a seamless transition between the different parts of the day.    Our DJs don’t run around setting up speakers while your guests are mingling and are set up and ready at all three locations long before your first guests arrive at the chapel.

The Photo Booth

We decided the use the beautiful surrounding landscape of The Glades Farm instead of a backdrop, I personally prefer the natural look of the pictures.   Our photo booth has a high quality Canon Flash built in , and coupled with a Canon DSLR resulted in well lit photographs.    Here’s a few of my favourite pics from the afternoon.

We ran the photo booth for an hour and a half during pre-drinks and created 97 photo booth prints from a total of 291 photos.  (Extra copies printed not included in this figure)

The Photo Booth was moved indoors and placed on the edge of the dance floor next to The Wedding DJ‘s table.  This was the first time that we used the room as a background instead of a wall or backdrop.   The results were stunning, here’s a few examples photo booth prints.

The First Dance

JP and Britt practised their first dance for months, here’s the end result.

Midlands weddings are always fantastic, with the main reason probably being that most of the guests normally stay over and don’t have to worry about driving home still.   Just book a great DJ and your wedding will be one your friends will talk about for years to come:)
