Global Hire Sound and lighting has been Offley Place’s go-to people for everything entertainment for many years now. They know Offley Place weddings like the back of their hand and have been our in-house supplier for over 20 years, so read on to find out how they can put the perfect spin on your wedding day.
Global Hire consists of Luc, Paul and Steve, they have worked together as DJ’s since 1995! They aim to offer award-winning DJ’s, dance floors and discos for all types of weddings.
They began as a trio of music lovers DJing at bars and nightclubs, they gradually became more recognised and people began asking them to play at weddings and private events- thus Global Hire was born! They love weddings just as much as we do for one simple reason- the emotion and the atmosphere you just can’t beat, seeing people getting lost in the music!
The group’s DJing has taken them all over the world, they’ve seen Ibiza, Australia, Canada, Thailand and the UK (now that’s a pretty cool list!). For the last 20 years, they have focused on providing the good people of Hertfordshire with awesome DJing, dance floors, up-lighting and PA systems. They love to stay up to date with the latest technology advancements (hence the extension from DJs to all things entertainment), and they really know how to bring the wow factor to weddings.
In 2016 the company was awarded the Creative Talent and Outstanding Service categories in the WedBiz awards, and then again in 2019 too! These awards were based on interviews and votes with wedding couples so they truly are a recommended supplier!
When asked to give our new couples some wedding planning advice, they said to relax and let your wedding team take care of you! Your planners, venue and supplier are there to make your dream day a reality, so make use of us and focus on relaxing and enjoying your time with your family.
Global Hire’s favourite wedding moment is around 10 pm when the bridal party have slipped on some flip-flops after all the formalities are finished, drinks are flowing and the party is really on! You really feel the love in the air as friends and family dance the night away- you really can’t beat a wedding.
What Global Hire love about Offley Place is its warm and welcoming atmosphere, for a big country house we have a very family feel and make sure all events run as smoothly as possible.
Can I help choose the music for my DJ?
Yes! We have a dedicated service on our website www.requests.globalhire.com whereby you can give your DJ pointers to any special songs you’d like him to play during the evening. That webpage has lots more tips about music requests too.
Can you set up the disco/dance floor etc. in the morning?
Yes! In fact, that is the preferred way to do it for the Hester Ballroom. As the resident supplier, we can have everything set up ready to go before your guests even arrive and save time in the evening.
What happens if I need to change my disco booking?
In recent times this has become even more important to know. Rest assured, we would simply aim to transfer your disco booking across to the new date (subject to availability). No fuss, we are always happy to help. Luc runs the office and can be reached at any time at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Can you recommend a sax player? A magician? A photographer?
Yes! We work alongside an amazing team of professional wedding suppliers every week. Each one does things slightly differently from the next, so we would be happy to make suitable recommendations.
We had Globalhire’s platinum package at our wedding at Offley Place on the 19th July and they were amazing. The set-up was absolutely beautiful and gave the evening a look I hadn’t imagined was possible. They remembered our request to not include the first line of our first dance song, and were able to scatter the up lighters like I had asked between two rooms and it was perfect. The music kept everyone dancing all night long which i had really wanted to happen and it did! Couldn’t recommend them more highly. And thank you so much.
Wow! Thank you to the guys of Globalhire, they were simply fantastic! The set list was outstanding from start to finish and you created the party/nightclub atmosphere that we wanted. The dance floor was never empty the entire night. We took the platinum package from you guys and all the extras that came with that really helped throughout the day to create an amazing atmosphere. We had up-lighters, a PA system and the fabulous twinkling dancefloor. All in all, if you want an awesome event use these guys. Top-quality equipment, professional and personal service, and great value for money. Dean Fitzgerald
I would 100% recommend Globalhire to DJ/host any event. At our recent wedding celebration, they were so professional & organised and played some brilliant music which meant the dance floor was always packed which is exactly what we wanted!! I thoroughly recommend the light-up dance floor and up-lighting it transformed the venue! Thanks for a fantastic night guys!
