Ways to get wedding day music that is cheaper

  1. Less skilled and experienced musicians are cheaper
  2. Musicians who pay no Tax can afford to be cheaper
  3. Musicians who don’t take the time to carefully plan for your wedding are cheaper
  4. Those with no Licenses, Health & Safety docs nor Public Liability insurance are cheaper
  5. Musicians who are desperate for work are cheaper
  6. Part time, hobbyists, weekend musicians are cheaper
  7. Those who would not even consider over delivery
  8. Bands who aim to arrive On Time are cheaper (we aim to arrive at least 2 hours early)

Ceremony Package

Repertoire

Something to take into consideration is that we are always keen to incorporate the wishes of the client, and will always provide the special something they want to hear, but we do not provide a Jukebox service – ultimate selection and choice of style, mix tempo must be left to the judgement of Steelasophical – Its part of what makes us the best at what we do … in creating and maintaining the perfect musical backdrop

Mood Lighting enhances the atmosphere of your wedding or party

Even the most beautiful weddings party venues are transformed into colour coordinated spaces of warmth and elegance when mood lighting is applied, making it the perfect way to add a feeling of  stylish wedding entertainment.

weddings

The ‘glow’ is created using a series of high powered LED mood lights, which are seated at skirting board level and aimed at the ceiling – everything the light touches is atmospherically intensified, helping to design your Unique wedding entertainment

weddings

The beauty with mood lighting is you can choose practically any colour along the spectrum, so the shade from your bridesmaids dress, or the bows on your chair covers can instantly match your room, transforming features on your wedding day and surrounding your guests in an elegant atmosphere of warmth and sophistication.

Its also a super way to enhance your wedding disco experience.
