During the month of September we provided our lighting hire services for a wedding that took place at the amazing Hengrave Hall in Suffolk. The wedding couple requested a whimsical, Midsummer Night’s Dream theme for their celebrations. We were approached by Lisa from Just Bespoke Wedding Consultancy who took on the task of co-ordinating this with the suppliers involved.
With ideas form the client along with Lisa’s and our own input we were able to design and produce a theme that had never been seen before at Hengrave Hall. The clients fell in love the court yard area at the heart of the Hall and they decided it would be amazing to take their wedding breakfast outside amongst a woodland wonderland atmosphere.
The Court Yard had been transformed in to a banqueting area by Milsoms Hotels catering staff. Artificial trees were brought in and positioned around tables. We were able to string a large selection of festoon lights between the trees and up into the central well. These warm glow lamps gave a fantastic light output during the day and when dimmed during the evening. With the addition of LED fairy lights in the bay trees, LED candle tea lights hanging in votives from the trees and our signature warm glow up-lighting around the walls of the courtyard the theme was complete. Florists Tudor Rose had involvement by adding their special touches with table centres and additional foliage around the area. Finally Lisa’s team added the finer details to conclude the theme off perfectly. Our lighting hire services continued throughout Hengrave Hall with a selection of LED fairy lights and large LED candles positioned around the venue. Out on the West Terrance we provided our low level lighting so guest could continue enjoying the garden throughout into the evening.
Additionally to the lighting for the wedding theme we provided our sound and lighting equipment in the Banqueting Hall for the evening party. This consisted of coloured lighting for the band while they were performing, up-lighting and LED candles around the room, a selection of nightclub style lighting effects including moving heads and a giant strobe placed high up on the minstrel gallery, Speaker PA system, DJ booth and DJ equipment rider for the special guest DJ. The DJ was none other than Mr Norman Jay. He performed one of his legendary DJ sets for the last hours of the night. It was a pleasure to work alongside Norman and he was very complementary on how professional we were as a company.
