True Sound Hire prides itself on being able to cater for any type of wedding or event, and so when we were called in to cater to a special themed wedding at the Woodlands Park Hotel, we were excited to use our skills to turn the event into a truly memorable experience. The theme of the day was “fairytales”, and so when the bride arrived in a horse-drawn carriage, her prince charming was waiting in full coat and tails. The exterior of the hotel was decorated in LED fairy lights, which were supplied by our team, and as the sun began to set, our efforts to turn the venue into a dream wedding for the couple became truly apparent.
LED Uplighting at its Best
In order to give the venue a very dramatic appearance, LED Uplighting Hire was used in the gardens surrounding the venue, and this meant that while some parts were bathed in an ethereal light, others were thrown into mysterious darkness. Candles were strewn across the lawns and guests were asked to arrive dressed as their favorite fairytale characters. While some guests preferred to dress as their own fairytale hero’s, others chose to come as the villains of so many favored children’s tales, and this added to the intrigue of the event.
Time for Speeches
When the speeches began, the speakers got onto the Litedeck stages that were put together by our team during the morning before the event. The Shure ULX radio mics, which were supplied by us, allowed the speakers to tell tales of romance and intrigue about the couple before a group of tenors broke into song, surprising the couple with a melody from the movie, Beauty and the Beast, which accrued many laughs from the groom’s side.
Dancing in the Moonlight
Staging was placed in the center of the festivities so that the couples could dance by the light of the candles and the glow of the moon. The live band, which included instrumental performers, made use of our Live Band PA System to ensure that the atmosphere was filled with the full and clear sounds of soothing and romantic violins.
Saying Farewell to the Happy Couple
When the time came to see the couple off on their farewell, everyone gathered around while the bride and groom got into the carriage and were then carried off down the lane towards their bright and happy future. The wedding planner, as well as the management staff of the hotel itself, informed us of what a great job we did, and we were very happy to be a part of this couple’s big day. We are also pleased to add Woodlands Park Hotel to the list of grand venues where we have had the pleasure supplying our sound & lighting hire equipment, and we hope to return to this area in the near future. As the premier sound and lighting team in Guildford, Surrey and London, we are very happy to have yet another fantastic event under our belts.
