We have a sound system installed in the falls room directly over the dancefloor.  A DJ will usually setup to the side of the fireplace close to the bar.  The DJ will not be providing background music for cocktails.  Cocktails are normally in the Millview Room, so Ancaster Mill will ensure music is playing in the room.  When guests are escorted into the Falls Room our DJ will be playing background music you have chosen.

The DJ will arrive while your cocktails have begun in the Millview Room. He will perform a sound check and make sure he is ready to go when the guests are brought into the Falls Room.

At some point during cocktails, your MC should leave and introduce themselves to the DJ.  The maitre'd should also be in this short meeting to discuss details.  Housekeeping, the order of dances and who is doing the introductions are very important details to start the party.  The MC should also do a sound check so the volume of the microphone can be adjusted.

If the headtable is on the dancefloor in a U shape or square, it may be difficult to do a first dance on introduction.  If the head table is in a straight line, there is no problem doing a first dance on introduction.  

The DJ will turn down background music during dinner so that you may do speeches and toasts.  After dinner, the staff at Ancaster Mill will remove the head table for the party portion of the night.  This is a great time to do a cake cutting if you have one.  

Below are some photos and video of lighting in the Falls Room.  These effects can be added on at additional cost.
