What our clients say about us

  1. 1
    I recently got married at the Beach Ballroom, Aberdeen. Prior to my wedding I was put in touch with Barry from Granite City Events to discuss the possibility of placing lighting in and around the dance floor area of the Ballroom. My husband to be and I met with Barry who brought along with him images of previous events he had provided lighting for. We were very impressed with the options available to us and decided to go ahead and book Barry and his team. On the day of the wedding, as I walked down the aisle in the Ballroom, I was completely mesmerised by the room. Barry and his team had completed transformed the Ballroom by providing pillar lighting all around and fairy lighting overhead. When the evening reception began an image appeared on the dance floor detailing our name and wedding date. This was perfect as Barry had taken the time to listen to us when we first met and had recalled something my husband had mentioned, which Barry then incorporated into our floor design. I cannot thank Barry and Granite City Events enough and would highly recommend them to anyone wishing to illuminate their event whether it be a wedding or a corporate function.

    We appointed Granite City Events to add some pizzazz to the Young Enterprise Grampian finals event which was held at RGU Aberdeen. As the event was in the Business School's auditorium, Barry and his team were specifically tasked with transforming it from lecture theatre to a space akin to the X Factor stage by use of clever visuals, sound and lighting. I cannot speak highly enough of these guys - they really know their stuff. Barry is a laid back, unflappably individual and did an excellent job despite the frustrations of lack of set up time and space. It meant that, as event organiser with not many technical skills, I could breathe easy and leave it to the professionals. The event was a huge success and a lot of that can be attributed to the creativity and slickness of Granite City Events. We have already booked them for 2017.

    Ellon Events has used Granite City Events for the lighting, video and P.A. at our outdoor Hogmanay event. They deliver exactly what they promise and have a 'Can do' attitude to getting the show running on time. Even when we had a 7 hour delay on what would normally be a 24-hour set up, the whole team pulled out all the stops and made sure everything was ready in time for sound-check. We cannot recommend Granite City Events enough.
