Alison’s Surprise “I Love the 80’s” 30th Birthday Celebration | 19 July 2014 | Cronulla RSL Club

by

Last October I was contacted by Kieran about Alison’s 30th Birthday which he had begun organising. He explained that it was going to be a surprise for Alison and an “80’s” theme. Having entertained at Alison and Kieran’s wedding in 2009 and having developed a special connection with them both as we planned their amazing wedding, I felt deeply honoured and immediately jumped at the chance to be part of another of Alison’s lifetime milestone events.

Fast forward to last Saturday night where Alison was under the impression that she and Kieran were going to have a romantic celebratory dinner. Kieran had persuaded Alison to wear a blindfold and carefully guided her into the room where everybody was waiting very quietly. As she entered the room I hit play and as “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” by Cyndi Lauper commenced playing Alison, still blindfolded, was startled by the sound following which Kieran removed the blindfold and standing before her were invited family and friends. I wish I had been able to get a photo of her reaction as I don’t quite have the words to describe it….but let’s just say that she certainly had no idea whatsoever and was very surprised!!

After recovering from the surprise, Alison greeted the guests and a little while later went and changed into some “80’s” attire which Kieran had organised. From there on in everybody celebrated with Alison and made it a night that she will always remember. The was lots of dancing, singing and some fooling around, but it was all heaps of FUN….and all to an 80’s soundtrack!

It was such a joy to be there and see these two beautiful individuals again. Hope you enjoy the photos which follow Alison!

Private Event | 4 May 2013 | Private Residence, Sydney

by

DJ:Plus! Entertainment was extremely honoured to have been selected by one of the wedding industries best Floral Designers and Stylists to provide the entertainment on the occasion of her milestone birthday celebration. Vesna was organising her birthday celebration and was not having much luck finding the ‘right’ person to take care of the entertainment. I received a call from her, and whilst I was available, did suggest that I probably was not the best fit as I specialised in and had a great passion for weddings. We proceeded to have a lengthy chat about the industry in general and other things, but concluded that she would continue with her search. Three days later I received another call from Vesna, following her further search, asking if I would be a part of her celebration as no one else appeared to care or made her feel comfortable as I did. I am so glad I agreed to be a part of her birthday celebration!!

It was initially quite windy and it looked like it might rain when I arrived, but the wind died down, the sky cleared and the scene was set for a wonderful celebration. Held at Vesna’s residence, guests enjoyed a lovely evening chatting, drinking, eating, dancing, pole dancing, partying and having heaps of fun. With a “Red Carpet” theme and a mandatory hat to be worn by everyone, guests really got into the spirit of the celebration and helped create some beautiful memories for Vesna. Each time I tried to wrap up the evening, everyone yelled for more, to which I was more than happy to oblige, finally wrapping it up an hour later!!!

Thank you Vesna for calling me back, if you hadn’t I would not have had the opportunity to meet your lovely family [by the way, what a great name your husband has 😉 !!] and all your fantastic friends who truly care for you and wanted you to have the best time ever! I am sure you will look back on this celebration with many, many fond memories. It was such an honour and pleasure to be a part of it. Hope you like the photos I managed to take and look forward to our paths crossing at someone’s wedding soon.

New Year’s Eve Event | 31 December 2009 | Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney

by

Private event for 80 guests to celebrate the end of this decade and see in 2010. For the third time DJ:Plus! Entertainment has been privileged to have been selected to provide the entertainment for this event. Held biennially, the Cambridge Rooms located on the 3rd floor of the Shangri-La Hotel, Sydney was once again selected as the venue. The Cambridge Rooms overlooks the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and city skyline – a perfect venue to view both the 9.00pm and midnight New Year’s Eve fireworks display.

The theme for the 2009 NYE celebration was “Awaken The Spirit” and all Sydneysiders were encouraged to wear a touch of blue. The fireworks were synchronised to a soundtrack featuring music from movies and pop songs.

Guests at the event enjoyed a fabulous buffet, fireworks and dancing into the early hours – a fun time for all. The event was hosted by a very prominent business executive. To respect wishes for privacy, there are no photographs or videos in this post which depict any guests at this event. It was certainly a great honour to be asked to provide the entertainment for this celebration once again.

Private Event | 10 July 2009 | Shelley’s 30th Birthday | Springwood Sports Club, Springwood, Blue Mountains

by

Shelley celebrated her 30th Birthday with a Flirty Thirties themed event. 120 guests helped create a fantastic fun filled evening at Springwood Sports Club, which is located in the heart of the Blue Mountains, just 15 minutes from Penrith. As guests approached the function room door they were greeted by two lovely ladies and a gentleman from Purple Rain Entertaintainment , had their name checked off the guest list and presented with a “goodie bag” which contained both naughty and nice items.

Upon entering the room, there were photographs of Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn plus movies such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, Breakfast At Tiffanys and Some Like It Hot on the big screen – these plus the mood lighting really set the scene as we awaited our guest of honour’s arrival.

Shelley entered the room to “Bad Attitude” by Pink and received a fan-tab-u-lous round of applause and cheers from all the guests. She then proceeded to mingle and relax with her guests. During this time the ladies and gentleman from Purple Rain Entertainment worked the room taking Polaroids of guests and distributing cigars from the cigar tray.

 

Shelley then made a quick speech followed by a few words from her loving husband. Following this, I was instructed to “let it rip” and it was time to really party!

 

We briefly interrupted the dancing for the Purple Rain Trio to perform a burlesque routine, which to everyone’s surprise, also featured Shelley!! It was a great show with the girls and guy dancing and singing – and enjoyed by all present. May I say that Shelley did a really good job!!! (I hope to obtain footage of the entire routine, if I manage to do so, I will add it to this post. )

 

The dancing then resumed and continued into the wee hours of the morning. Shelley is a very lovely lady and she had a wonderful time celebrating her 30th birthday. She went to great lengths and put a lot of time and effort into planning and organising the celebration – I believe it was a success and everybody had a blast! What an absolute pleasure it was to have been given the opportunity to meet her and to be a part of this milestone in her life.
