Tell us a little about UK Events?
We are one of the largest in-house dance floor suppliers in the UK. We service many venues and event companies throughout the UK, creating a well-earned reputation for exceptional service and quality of product. In addition to our dance floor stock, we have heavily invested in AV and staging solutions which enable us to professionally service any event. Since our conception in 2009, we have rapidly grown into the first choice supplier for many of the UK’s largest event production companies – so you know you’re in safe hands. 

How would you describe your style and what makes you unique? 
We are unique purely in our service. Second to none, we have a very happy client base commenting on our excellent communication, clarity of operation, industry knowledge and ease of booking. We hold all of our own stock and therefore are very reasonably priced. We are constantly evolving and are often the first to bring new products and ideas to the wedding market, using our experience to give you a bespoke and memorable event.

When should a couple book you?
We advise that you book our services as soon as you have decided on your requirements. We do have a very large stock of equipment, but we do work on a first come, first served basis. To avoid disappointment during busy periods, our advice is to book as soon as you can. 

Do you come out to see the venue? 
We do provide clients with site visits, where required. This depends on individual circumstances and the complexity of the booking. Simple products like dance floors and uplighters may not require a site visit, due to their versatile nature and our knowledge of the Bijou venues. More complex enquiries where a bespoke production element is required, may require a site visit to help you visualise how it will all look on the day. 

Do you hire the equipment or arrive at the venue on the day and dress the room on the couples’ behalf?
We deliver, install and collect all our products, as part of the service. We also provide on-site operators, where required. We will liaise with the Bijou team to ensure we are aware of the timings of the day and have everything ready when required. This gives you peace of mind and leaves you to enjoy the day.

What would be your top tips for couples considering venue enhancement? 
Our biggest tip would be to not overlook dance floors and uplighters. These are often left until last and are sometimes believed to be an unjustifiable expense. Uplighters and dance floors can create room transformations themselves. Our Battery Powered LED Uplighters can be placed anywhere and achieve any colour. These can have a very cost-effective and dramatic effect on the whole ambiance of the function room. Alternatively, they can be used to simply accentuate features of the function space and tie in with your colour scheme. Dance Floors are not only a focal point and look beautiful, but build an air of excitement and encouragingly invite your guests to dance the night away. With such an array of choice available, we can certainly provide a dance floor that suits your theme and your taste. Our dance floors can be fully customised by mixing colours to create unique patterns and we also offer a custom graphic package, having your initials on the dance floor.

If you were getting married, how would you create the ultimate atmosphere in your venue? 
Entrance Décor: First impressions are very important and can often set your guests’ expectations for the rest of the evening. Therefore, I would have outdoor uplighters to light the frontage of the venue, coupled with a Red VIP Carpet leading the guests inside. 

Staging: A stage is a brilliant way of creating a focal point for the evening’s entertainment. Whether you have a DJ, a Band or both, a well-dressed stage is a beautiful touch. Staging is often also used to provide extra focus to the head table. 

Lighting: Immersive experiences are always remembered. I would achieve this with lighting by having moving head units on dressed plinths and uplighters around the perimeter of the room. This will give a subtle wash of colour around the room, with the added ability to instantly switch to party mode for the evening reception. 
Dance Floor: I would have the classic Starlit Dance Floor. With such a choice of colour and design, it’s guaranteed to give a stunning effect. 
LED Bar: Our LED Bars are not only practical, but also visually stunning. Even with venues that have the bar in the same room, this modular LED Bar can be just used as a small cocktail/champagne bar, or even as an exciting soft drinks bar for younger guests. 

Party Band: There is nothing quite like live music and a live band can really make the reception special. The right band can not only cater to your taste in music, but those of your guests and engage with the whole room. We work closely with many professional wedding bands and will find the right band with the right energy for your wedding. We will help you decide on the perfect band, then take care of all the sound and lighting solutions – making sure it looks stunning and sounds amazing.
