10 Years Old!

It seems like yesterday we walked into what was our new office and warehouse looking at the huge empty space thinking, “How on earth are we going to fill this!”  But once we had the coffee machine in place, it started to feel like we had been here forever. 10 years on, the coffee machine upgraded, many new faces later and warehouse space now heaving – we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary of the birth of Dreamwave Events tomorrow!

Paul and Dave are awesome bosses.  This makes the team feel more like family rather than a workplace we must go to to earn our keep.   I feel the in-house atmosphere and the fact that we all know what we are doing (this helps greatly!) combined with the professionalism of the company mean that 10 years on Dreamwave Events is a force to be reckoned with in the sound and lighting industry.  We have separated the business into two sides;  Dreamwave Lighting and Dreamwave DJ’s.

Like all companies, our journey started at the beginning being a small company but with high aspirations.  Fully aware that most companies collapse within their first two years of trading, 10 years is an amazing achievement.  Never to rest on ones laurels though, the guys are always looking at ways to move forward with new ideas to lead the market into the next trend.

Plans for the Next 10 Years

There are exciting times ahead that I’m literally bursting to tell you about.  Unfortunately, these will have to come later in a big reveal as and when they happen.  I don’t want to spoil the surprise!  In short, there a big things happening at Dreamwave HQ.  The future looks pretty bright.  We have many projects simmering on the back-boil.  I think that some of these will blow you away!

I really, really, REALLY want to be more specific.  But I guess you’re going to have to watch this space for future announcements.  For now, this blog post is to literally say “Happy Birthday to us!” and pat ourselves on the back for reaching this mega milestone.

 

Make Your Event with Colour Lighting

Colours speak louder than words.  The correct colour lighting can ultimately change the whole event experience, manipulating mood and dictating guest emotions.  Lighting is not often at the top of the list when it come to wedding or event planning.  But it really does make a huge difference to the feel of a function.

Event Colour Lighting and Mood

Give your event the professional edge.  Every event is unique and it is paramount that individual event themes are taken into account by specialist lighting designers and lighting programmers to complement that theme, hitting the nail on the head with the right mood lighting.

Colour lighting enhances, changes and establishes mood and is used strategically at events to trigger an emotional state through triggering memory subconsciously.  Branding often focuses on colour for this reason, but at a corporate event this needs to be taken into consideration when taking into account how your guests will feel using the branded colour lighting in an event space.

From hot, intense red; vibrant cheery yellow; relaxing blue to fresh and tranquil green every colour stimulates a temperature in the room and the power of it should definitely not be overlooked.

 

Use the Correct Colour Lighting in the Appropriate Places

Colour lighting, when done poorly can look downright awful! Successfully projecting colour lighting will accentuate features, without overpowering them and detracting from the overall theme.  To create the right mood, takes careful thought.   A classic example is the colour lighting used from day to night.  Warm hues work best at a wedding during the day, for example.  Yet you will want to dramatically change the atmosphere and mix up the vibrant colours for the informal evening party!

Walls and trees lend themselves to be perfect for Up-lighting, whether your going for the hard party atmosphere, a formal affair or a festival style event.  They are great for mixing up different colour combinations and for lighting up specific areas.

Spotlights are fabulous when it come to illuminating key focus areas.

Gobo Projections can be custom made.  A company logo or monogram illuminated in your branded colour or a personal design can be created and projected for a wedding or celebration.

Marquee Festoon Lighting – Eggington House

The journey of creativity is never ending.  We were very excited to be approached again by wondrous wedding planner, Katrina Otter, to provide marquee festoon lighting at the unique 17th century manor, Eggington House in Bedfordshire.   We love collaborating with Katrina and forming fabulous ideas for wedding lighting and decor as one of her go to suppliers.  Lisa and Tom’s day was no exception to the rule.

Focus Feature with our Marquee Festoon Lighting

The whole marquee together with the quintessentially English setting looked simply stunning.  So much so that it caught the attention of renowned Coco Wedding Venues to feature in their popular blog.

“remember that it really isn’t just a day, it’s a wedding journey and you have to enjoy it all. It is such a special time.”

I know that Lisa and Tom had a few bumps in the road leading up to their day (like most couples planning a wedding), but they took everything in their own stride and had complete faith in their suppliers to deliver.  I think the end result in the photographs speak for themselves, don’t you?

Dreamwave Events’ Lighting Rental Hire – Marquee Festoon Lighting

Happiness looks gorgeous on Lisa, so we enjoyed making her smile!  We provided black cable droplet festoons with a mixture of warm glow vintage and geometric lamps hung in an asymmetric design from the marquee structure.

Our custom created marquee festoon lighting gave a reason for their wedding guests to stare.  The geometric lamps gave a touch of contemporary whilst the vintage hanging lamps nodded to the traditional; both providing the jaw-dropping impact on arrival and then leading into the evening creating desirable ambiance with their dimmable glow.

“the festoon lighting was a great investment and something I’d definitely recommend.”

A Focus with Photographs – Carmela Weddings

When you think of the words modern and luxury, you think Carmela Weddings.  She is all that represents authentic style using current trends whilst incorporating the timelessness of traditions.  We have had the pleasure of working alongside Carmela Weddings at a number of events.  She approached us last year to take part in her planned photo shoot.

“We brought in the innovative Dreamwave events to create a hanging lighting installation that created a show stopping juxtaposition”

Carmela Weddings- Stylish and Modern

Carmela Weddings strive to lead the way in modern wedding trends.  With this shoot, she; with the help of her suppliers, achieved her balance of contemporary style with timeless traditional elements.

 “As a modern wedding planner, we know how to respect current trends and keep things relevant, but we still needed to ensure the shoot embraced a timeless aesthetic. We wanted to introduce design elements from eclectic sources such as fashion and popular culture to compliment our fundamental belief that real style never goes out of fashion!”

“Your brand is a gateway to your true work.  When you create a compelling brand you attract people who want the promise of your brand – which you deliver.” (Dave Buck).   I believe Carmela Weddings have created an authentic branding here that truly reflects their company vision.  These photos tell the story that I am fundamentally failing to put into words to justify their exquisite design that ooze sophistication.

Luxurious Wedding Lighting

Our expert lighting design technicians worked closely with Carmela Weddings and Florist, Emma Soulsby, to create an effect that worked and complimented the atmospheric details of the shoot.  I think we came up trumps!  We put together an inspiring structure of our hanging pendant lamps integrated into Emma’s fabulous florals.  Our mood setting lighting design elements were installed above the dining area at the shoot; gently illuminating the models during their portrait shots with our additional set lighting used to enhance aspects of their surroundings.

Armistice Ball 2018 – Praising what is lost, makes remembrance dear

On Saturday 10th November 2018, The Hangar at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall was dressed for the occasion to celebrate the 100th anniversary milestone of Armistice.  The amazing charity event raised an incredible £27,000 for ABF soldiers charity during Armistice Ball 2018.

Dreamwave Events’ Part to Play

Being fabulous friends with the Milsoms Group, we had to be involved in Armistice Ball 2018!  As well as donating our Evening DJ Service as a charity Auction Prize; one of our show stopping Dreamwave DJ’s delivered a party to remember along with the Band of the Army Air Corps during the evening’s escapades.

Preparation for Armistice Ball 2018

Preparations began days before with all the suppliers working together to make it a night to remember with stunning aesthetics! Our Dreamwave lighting technicians produced a jaw-dropping geometric hanging pendant lamp arrangement creating a key focal point during the event.

Dreamwave Events also provided full sound production for the event along with poignant gobo projections and a masterful illumination of the First World War bi-plane from Stow Maries Airfield creating a key central feature using our high quality up-lighting.

We joined director, Paul Milsom and all the guests for a 2 minute silence during dinner.  Whilst eating, guests were entertained by the acapella group The Testostertones and the Downton Abbey Dancers, before a charity auction.

 

 

The leading donation was the replica of the Royal Enfield Pegasus 500 motorbike the Flying Flea that made up £10,000 of the total of contributions

A fantastic evening was had by all and we look forward to the next event at Milsoms Kesgrave Hall.

Dave Drane – Standing on the Edge of Tomorrow

No business should be without a Dave Drane:  A cool cat with a head packed with invention and imagination! Dreamwave Events could not be where it is today and it still rapidly moving on up.  The sky’s the limit!

 Dave Drane Dreamwave DJ Lighting Co-Director

Our Co-Director – Dave Drane

Dave keeps Dreamwave ahead of the game.  He is well and truly our ideas man.  His confidence in his own ability and that of the team, keep Dreamwave DJ’s and Dreamwave Lighting leading the way in innovation.

Like any creative individual, Dave Drane can be a slightly left of the middle.  Fixated on his photographic pose (yes there was much debate on which photos to include in this blog post), chiseled features and receding hairline (😱) he is still a complete teddy bear! But make no mistake his professionalism and focus provides the motive power required for success; and nothing succeeds like success!

Dave Drane – What you are will show in what you do (Thomas Edison)

A young Dave begun his career as DJ, “Dave Dreamer.”  He also gained a wealth of sound and lighting production knowledge working successfully for Highlite International, a Dutch based audio and visual equipment supplier.  Whilst working for Highlite, Dave joined forces with DJ Paul Pollard (our other Co-director) at “Making Waves” to form Dreamwave Events!

I think I have made it quite clear that Dave is our ideas man.   I caught up with Dave to get his insight into his perspective on Dreamwave and his role in the mechanics of the business:

When Paul and I started out together almost ten years ago, we never dreamt we would be where we are now within the industry and with such a strong team beside us.  

As with any business; roles change, as well as direction. I don’t personally get to DJ as much these days as I’d like but am very happy to hand over the ‘platters’ to our good skilled team of guys. More is required to be done on a day to day basis but we like to stay true to our routes providing a service to clients that is of the highest standard and quality.

Looking ahead Dreamwave is moving in to new areas of the sound and lighting industry with developments in to rental and installations that is proving very exciting and productive.
