An exrtaordinary wedding in Richmond allowed us to really deliver a supreme display for a wonderful evening celebrating two beautiful people’s official union. Held on private grounds with around four hundred guests in attendance this was a truly unique wedding reception.
The centre display of the Wedding Party tent complete with Chauvet Motion Orb LED Festoon Lights
The creative vision was that of Petersham Road events who oversaw the event production. We were called in to supply complete technical event support and production. This include all onsite power, wedding lighting, party lighting, live sound hire, DJ equipment and Technical crew remained on site for the duration of the event to manage live sound operation and lightings and power. It was a large site, with a number of ancillary structures requiring power and lighting. Build began a week before the wedding day, so once structures were in place we positioned generators, ran power and site lighting. Over 50 IP rated colour LED uplighters were installed to wash various garden and building features.
The Orangery tent, dinner tables set and awaiting guests
The dinner tent in itself is a stunning structure, supplied by LP Bohemia and known as the Orangery, it is evocative of Victorian glass houses with a palatial feel. The whale-rib roof structure combined with a beautiful floral and evergreen display made our task a simple one. We used thirty eight Chauvet chrome LED Well uplighters and ten LED down lights to ensure the space was suitably illuminated for the evening. Following tradition speeches were during the dinner for which we had installed JBL speakers to the horizontal supports of the structure. This did away with any visually and physical obtrusive strands and making use of radio microphone systems we kept the tent as cable free as possible.
Party underway in the Grand Pavilion, LED moving heads and Motion Orbs in action
A separate structure was supplied for the late night revelry; the Grand Pavilion, wooden framed with an onion dome top and circular dance floor. This was painted in an Indian pattern-cum-Holy Mountain style. Having recently added the Chauvet Motion Orb to our lighting hire stock these were the perfect fixtures to use, allowing us to hang them from the centre point forming a chandelier type LED canopy above the dance floor. Each Motion Orb LED light is individually controllable offering pixel mapping for some stunning and unique displays. Around the dance floor perimeter we installed twelve Chauvet Intimidator 150 moving heads, twelve Chauvet Pix-M moving LED pixel battens and around the outer perimeter over sixty Freedom Par Hex wireless uplighters were positioned to highlight various props and snugs.
There was a mix of live music acts and DJ’s for the party tent. For the FOH sound system hire we supplied Flare Audio X3A and Q18 active floor monitors. An Allen & Heath QU24 digital sound desk at monitor position with iPad control which allowed us to mix FOH without having to disrupt the dance floor with any control systems and hardware. The music and atmosphere was fantastic, guests thoroughly enjoying themselves into the morning hours.
The Jungle stage in the Party Tent complete with Backline Hire and Active Floor Monitors
