I don't tend to offer mic'ing up of celebrants/registrars and to be honest, have never been asked for it. If needs be, I'll find a suitable wireless setup for that when the time comes.

    Doesn't get much simpler.
    I hear what you say, Wayne.(Actually, I see what you type, but that's nitpicking). In all cases so far, I've had 240v of some description within easy reach, but the 5 Go was considered long ago. My celebrants have usually accepted the offer of a Mic, and some have said they'd bring their own if I couldn't provide one!

    Gavin, I'll look into something like that. Cheers, g4music are quite near me.
    Anyway oads, back on topic please. Thanks.

    Default How do you measure success?

    Well if you measure it as freezing your bits off in a tent, being largely ignored by guests, who are intermittently coming up and asking " what do we need to get this started properly ", then I had a corker last night.

    Small house party last night, near Scarborough. Garden on many levels, disco tent at the highest point, furthest away from house, heat, bar, and food. Every time I thought I'd hit a rich seam, it was the old three song dancefloor. Full for three, empty for six, full for three, empty for eight..............

    Some very diverse requests, including some oddball ones from mainstream artists, such as Pretenders and Eurythmics. The token two under twelves wanting R'n'Bilge constantly, and me trying ( unsuccessfully ) to fit tunes into a semblance of order.

    Finished the night with a full* floor, customer in raptures, and a £10 tip. Go figure.

    * Full floor. Since a Micron Booth and one Maui 11 effectively took up a quarter of the tent, in this case, a full floor was anything over five people.

    I had this last year. The couple put me facing out of their garage onto their driveway, which would have been fine except that the house and patio was about 200m to my hard left so the guests up there could barely here me (or see me!) The customer came up to me at the end... "in hindsight it might have been better if we'd put you with the guests by the house"
