Looking for your Ashridge House Wedding DJ?
Searching for a review of the Ashridge House Wedding Venue in Hertfordshire?
It’s been a while since I wrote a Wedding Venue review like this. In all honesty I thought I had seen, wrote about (and performed at) all the best Wedding Venues in Herts and Essex. Last Sunday though my travels took me to Hertfordshire where I had the pleasure of being the Wedding DJ at Ashridge House.
My name is Dan and I am a Specialist Wedding DJ based in Hertford. I hope that this article helps in the planning of your big day. Here is an account of my experience being an Ashridge House Wedding DJ for the evening.
It’s hard to put into words my first impressions of Ashridge House Wedding Venue, I was a tad speechless. Ashridge House is a beautiful Wedding Venue. In fact I would say the most impressive wedding venue I have had the pleasure to DJ at (and I have visited many over the past few years).
I arrive on site on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday to be the Wedding DJ for Danielle & Stuart. As I make my way down the long drive I get the feeling that I am about to be greeted my something special and Ashridge House certainly delivers with the wow factor!
The venue looks stunning dressed with a golden colour scheme for the wedding and countless golden roses really finish the look. It’s clear instantly that a great deal of thought and planning had gone into the day.
I am greeted by the Toast Master for the day “Nigel” and am given an update to the running order and made very welcome. I later learnt that Nigel was also the Food & Beverage Manager in charge of the Wedding day. This really struck me as going the extra mile for the couple. I don’t know of another venue where the manager has taken formal Toast Master training. The entire team at Ashridge House were entirely professional and friendly. It’s clear that the staff here take real pride working in such a lovely setting.
On the day as the Wedding DJ I played alongside a great 4 piece band “iRock” who were really good fun. The band played a selection of upbeat crowd pleasers and I would highly recommend them in conjunction with a DJ. Having a Wedding DJ as well as a Band means the atmosphere stays at a high in between sets and after the Band have finished.
I must mention the Chocolate Buffet Company who were also at the Wedding. Think heaven on a table! This was a sweet cart on a whole other level, the finest chocolate from around the world in many mouth-watering combinations! Amazing!
The happy couple were clear with the music and feel of the evening they were hoping for and I was more than happy to deliver! I played all the classics early on from Motown to the 80’s to get the party atmosphere going. After the Band had finished their second set we moved into an Indie / Rock section and as requested an hour of classic R&B.
The evening ended at 1am to a full dancefloor and a circle finish. The atmosphere was incredible and there was a whole lot of love in the room! To see the smiles on the faces of guests and of course the stars of the show is really special. As a wedding DJ it’s the most satisfying part of the job. To know that the day has finished on a high and lifetime memories have been made….really special.
I think it is obvious that I had the best time being an Ashridge House Wedding DJ and the venue has had a real impression on me. Would I recommend Ashridge House? Most definitely!
The Building and setting are simply stunning! As opulent as a palace and as magical as a Harry Potter novel. Ashridge House feels Royal and this is reflected in the service and attention to detail from the amazing Nigel and his Wedding Team.
I hope this article helps in the planning of your big day. I would like to thank all the team at Ashridge House for making me feel so welcome and of course a huge thank you to our happy couple for having me as their Wedding DJ…..Congratulations!
Happy Wedding Planning 🙂
