When you can do a common thing in an uncommon way; you will command the attention of the world (George Washington Carver).  Sophie Hannah Richardson and Robin certainly achieved that!  Her original and creative wedding day can only be described as EPICCCCCCCCCC!

The Wedding Venue – Captains Wood Barn

Captains Wood Barn set the scene for this awesome day.  Found in 50 acres of Essex woodland, Captains Wood barn can be hired for the whole weekend to be dressed as you please.  This was a perfect choice to allow Sophie’s innovative ideas to be brought to life…and boy, did she do just that!

Alberto & Yago Videography were flown from Barcelona.  With Sophie being an avid and successful vlogger a fab wedding vid was a must have!

Creative Wedding – The Lighting and Decor

We are soooo pleased Sophie approached us to take part in her day.  Her natural upbeat and cool personality was emanated on her wedding day with her emphasis on refreshing, original and lavish design .

“We were so happy we picked Dreamwave to create our lighting and DJ area for our wedding. They really listened to what we wanted to achieve and excelled in making it happen. They were a pleasure to work with and we can’t thank them enough for making our ideas come to life! Would 100% recommend to everyone!”

Go on; swoon over our Festoon belts used to hang Pendant Drops and larger Vintage Filament Lamps of different heights and sizes.  Additional Festoon strings were hung higher in the the barn to add further depth.  Further pendant drops were also added behind the top table as a mini festoon backdrop to create an ideal focal point.

Our “Naked” wire floor standing lampshades added to the overall theme.

The DJ Area – Creative Wedding Decor

Sophie knew exactly how she wanted her reception venue to look.  Captains Wood Barn lent itself to all her ideas.  Our Wooden DJ Booth and Lit studio signs truly complement.

This spectacular couple know how to put on a party.  They hired our top quality DJ Equipment and had additional special effects of Smoke Machines, Moving Heads, Pyrotechnic Confetti Blasts and Vintage Blaze effects on the dance floor.  We have it all at Dreamwave HQ!

Outside the Barn – Creative Wedding Decor

The outdoor covered barn was the ideal place to feature some additional lighting and decor for guests to catch some fresh air in the evening.  A full festoon backdrop completely lit the back wall to illuminate the area and our Retro Lampshades hanging from the barn ceiling.

Additional Outdoor Lighting

What wedding outdoor lighting doesn’t need a festoon walkway to guide the way?  The difference is, is that this pathway, in true wedfest style,  had a flame beacon at the end of it – yep a bonfire!

Sophie knew from the outset that her wedding would be anything but conventional – The Pastel Palm Springs inspired theme incorporating California and Cacti caught the attention of Rock n Roll Bride – the bible for the alternative bride!

Sophie and Robin managed to balance their love of creativity and D.I.Y wedding along with choosing the right professionals who understood their vision.   With the help of Rock the Day Styling to co-ordinate their original concepts, Sophie saw all her ideas come together.
