Karaoke is included with both my Silver and Gold packages but must be ordered.

Our karaoke hire is amazing and has over 150,000 tracks and we use top quality radio mics so you’ll never sound better!

We don’t use karaoke books anymore as they usually end up torn and smelly and out of date the week they are printed. Instead we ask singers to come and talk to the Dj and tell them what they want to sing and he will then check and take their name and call them up when they’re on. It’s much easier and more personal. I use two top quality microphones and use a separate mixer for reverb etc.

Sound system upgrades: One pair of Yamaha DSR 118w subs (1050 watts each) 

This video show both the tops and bottoms that I use! These speakers are crystal clear and are top quality and these speakers only draw 100 watts from the mains per speaker! This is very useful when your in a venue with a limited power supply. These speakers cost just under £1000 each! I use two DSR 115 speakers with my silver disco and an additional 2 DSR 118W subs with my gold disco package!

Bigger and smaller sound systems available POA.

Use of sound system by a third party.

I am happy for a band or soloist etc to use my sound system under my supervision providing they are careful and respectful of my equipment. This will incur an additional charge as I will need to use a different mixer and act as sound engineer. They must provide an XLR output from their mixing desk and provide all microphones, instruments, back line etc. I will only provide “front of house” sound.

They will also need to sign an indemnity in case they damage my equipment.

Mood Lighting hire: 12 conventional cabled mood lights that can be set to your chosen colour and placed around the room.

12 ADJ battery powered mood lights . (Very quickly set up as no cables to tape down and can be put anywhere). Ideal for weddings where a room turnaround is required.

12 ultra bright, wireless, battery powered, waterproof mood lights which can set to any colour. These can be used indoors and outdoors and once the disco starts and can be made to run sequences wirelessly. 

(These are very quickly set up as no cables to run for power and DMX which would usually need taped down) Ideal if your having a room turnaround after your meal!

These lights cost 7 times what a standard mood light costs because they are battery powered and have wireless DMX control. This means I can dim the mood lights from the DJ console and set colours and patterns at the touch of a button! To say it looks good is an understatement!

Here is a video taken at The Huntingtower Hotel In Perth which shows you all the key features of these amazing wireless mood lights.

One other key feature is that in the event of a power cut the lights will remain on! (particularly useful for events in marquees with temporary power supplies) 

These lights are also fantastic if your venue has poor control of its house lighting with a lack of zones or dimmers! These mood lights provide enough light so that all the venues lights can be switched off and then I can dim, change the colours etc to suit the mood of the night. These lights cost £4000 for a set of 12!

Here’s a video I took of them at a gig on the 14th of October 2017 at The Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry.

Music for ceremony including separate sound system and operator as required and your choice of music. We can do this wirelessly.

Music during dinner including the use of a separate sound system and top quality Senheiser radio microphone for speeches . (This microphone cost £500 and is broadcast quality. It is a super cardiod mic which is particularly good for people who aren’t used to holding a microphone and making speeches. It picks up your voice as long as it’s pointing towards your mouth)

Here is a review of this microphone if your a technology fan like me:

Video disco with 5ft screen built into the front of the disco which can display photos, videos, messages etc. Or video disco with an 8ft screen hung from either side of the disco. 

I offer a twin screen option, one on either side of the disco, hung from trussing, it looks amazing but needs a very wide stage!

Backdrops:

6m wide by 3m tall white backdrop with stand and fairy lights which is Ideal for putting behind the top table.

The backdrop can have 6 or 12 up lighters added set to your wedding colours.

Here’s a video of my new drape with 9 up lighters:

Full colour laser light show which can also project your names in laser light all around the room! 

The 360 degree lighting package.

This means that there will be 1-2 lighting stands at the other end of the room with lights on them and they are connected to the disco by wireless DMX so the room is lit from both ends and all the lights do the same thing at the same time!

This covers the entire room with light!

SPECIAL EFFECTS:

Smoke machine (where permitted)

Low Smoke machine to create clouds (dry ice type effect) and is not suitable for venues with smoke detectors.

Dry ice, dancing on the clouds effect.

The best method but dry ice is expensive to buy as is the machine that produces the effect. This is the ultimate effect and doesn’t set off venue smoke detectors!

Custom gobo projection of your names and date of wedding which can be projected onto the ceiling of your function room or at the front doorway of your venue. (I will present you with your glass gobo at the end of the night as a keepsake)

Here is an example of two different glass gobos I had made:

Projector and screen hire. We can hire you a projector and screen which you can either attach a laptop to or an iPhone or iPad. (We have all the apple video connectors) We also have HDMI and VGA cables for connecting to most devices, We can offer advice on connections. 

The projector and screen is great to hire because you can put your wedding video on it for the night time guests to see! For birthdays you can play a video or a slideshow of the birthday boy or girl as they’ve grown up! Its great fun also for engagement parties and anniversaries and nice to look back on your lives!

Photography and videography.

Platinum Discos offers a variety of photography and videography packages to suit all budgets.

Our basic videography package consists of a video camera place above our disco lighting rig that captures all the action on the dance floor from your first dance to your last dance. I’ve often thought that it’s a pity that photographers and videographer go home just after the first dance and that you have no record of the evening reception. We have now rectified this by offering our basic video package. We will send you an unedited Dvd, or two, with the entire nights footage in HD quality video. Our camera uses a wide angle lens so we should capture the vast majority of the dance floor on film for you. £100.

All day video with 2 cameras. We also offer an all day videography package where one camera will follow the bride and the other will follow the groom until they both arrive at the church or ceremony location. From this point both cameras will follow record the ceremony from differing viewpoints.

When the ceremony is over both cameras will continue to video the bride and groom and their guests until the meal. We will record the speeches and any highlights during the meal too.

When the evening reception starts we will record the entire evening from the first dance to the last dance and both cameras will be used to record the dancing and also other highlights from around the venue and its gardens. A video will be produced and edited and a soundtrack added and posted to you by recorded delivery.

A huge advantage of allowing us to video your ceremony and preparation is that we can show your evening guests your day on our video disco screen or screens!

The all day video package with two cameras costs £1200.

Photography. We also offer a top class photography service where we do something rather unique.

We will supply you with an album of your wedding photographs on the day of your wedding! No waiting weeks for you photos to arrive, you will have them on the day. We will also send you another photo album with larger prints and specials including frames etc shortly after. One other special feature we will provide is all your wedding photographs posted on line on a page on our website that we will have created for your wedding. This can include photos and videos if you’ve opted for our video package too. This is particularly good for friends or family who can’t come to your wedding on the day who may be sick or who live far away. Where a good internet connection is available we will try and stream your entire wedding live or with a short delay. 

We will use two cameras to record your day for reliability and because we can print them out more or less instantly.

The video streaming feature and posting of photos will require a good internet connection at your venue. If one is not available we will post your photos and videos overnight so your guests can see them the following day.

Price £1,000.

If you have any questions regarding photography or videography please get in touch by phone or email.

All our services are provided nationwide in Scotland from the very north of Scotland from Lochinver, Thurso and Wick down through Aberdeen and Inverness to Perth and Dundee. We also cover the central belt all the way from Glasgow in the west to Edinburgh in the east and all the towns and villages nearby. We also go right down to the borders and some of our most visited areas include Dumfries, Stranraer, Hawick, Galashiels, Selkirk, North Berwick and Dunbar.
