Mel & Ian – Essendon Country Club, August 2015

Great Expectations!

First Dance With Bubbles

This was definitely the feeling in the air when we set about delivering Mel & Ian’s perfect evening reception in early August. The couple had chosen the elegant Essendon Country Club for their big day, but several family weddings had taken place only weeks before, so the pressure was on to set their day apart with some cool twists and unique surprises. Luckily they had Showtime Events on speed dial to help with their party planning (and toastmastering throughout!).

Like Candy

Mel & Ian had chosen a dark navy & coral as their two colours for the day, so our first port of call was a set of uplighters installed early on to add a little more glam to their event space. We matched this with a stripped back, minimalist white DJ rig with the addition of some up-to-the-minute mini moving head club lights to add some party-crazy a little later into the night.

The couple were also keen to book in our pick ‘n’ mix candy buffet for the evening, along with a shower of our ever-popular bubbles for the first dance. They said these were for the kids, but we’re pretty sure Ian knew that if people were looking at the bubbles, then they wouldn’t be watching his dancing (it’s ok Ian, it’s just between us!).

Ian Mel With Confetti Barrage

To top off the day, they also booked a confetti barrage in blue, which we fired outside just when the pics were being taken with the wedding car. All good!

Now, all that remained was for Showtime Director, DJ Ray, to rock the crowd into the wee small hours and he certainly didn’t disappoint! How do we know? Well the Groom who ‘won’t dance’ was up on the floor for quite a while in the end…

Candy Buffet Close Up 1Chatting to us a few days later Mel said, ‘we were overwhelmed with the fantastic support and guidance we received from all at Showtime Events, from start to finish! The candy buffet went down a storm with both adults and children alike and the bubble machine and lighting helped to create some fantastic first dance photos! We just wanted to say a big thank you to you all for helping us to create a memorable and amazing day!’

As we say, clients happy, party crowd happy, Showtime Events happy!
