The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Stage, Sound, Lighting, and Dance Floor Hire to Unique Wedding at Denbies Wine Estate

Nestled in the Surrey Hills AONB, and underneath the shadow of Box Hill itself lies Denbies Wine Estate

Holding the title of England’s largest vineyard, this estate sprawls over 265 acres and sits on the rural outskirts of Dorking. It acts as an incredible venue for a wedding, which usually takes place in the Conservatory Atrium. However, this can be extended to include the Garden Room if you need every inch of the capacity limit (400). 

Last Summer, we were approached by a couple who, at short notice, had been let down by one of their event production suppliers due to the confusion surrounding the pandemic. As is par for the course for The Sound & Light Company, we moved a few mountains to bring everything together for their special day, and so we’d like to tell you a little more about the work we undertook on what turned out to be a wonderful summer’s day. 

The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Event Lighting for Exclusive Rural Surrey Wedding 

Due to the nature of the venue, the event theme was very much of a rustic nature. We bore that in mind when supplying and installing the mood and decorative lighting. 

We started by draping festoon lights from the vaulted glass ceiling of the Conservatory Atrium. We then placed a few strategic wireless uplighters to emit a similar warm yellow glow. When night fell, the whole setting looked majestic, and the couple were stunned as they made their way into the room to be seated as a married couple for the first time.  

Next up, our responsibilities shifted to setting up the technical equipment for the evening entertainment. 

Stage, Professional Sound, Lighting, and Dance Floor Hire Supplied to Denbies Wine Estate 

As mentioned, once we had taken care of our decorative and atmospheric brief, it was time to focus our attention on the central aspect of our event brief, the event production for the live entertainment portion of the proceedings. 

We started by supplying and installing one of our indoor wedding stages. It was a 6m x 4m modular stage, accompanied by a truss structure that housed the stage and dance floor lighting fixtures. 

The entertainment was a mixture of a professional live wedding band and a DJ who carried the party into the early hours. With that in mind, we set up a comprehensive PA system for the live band, including d&b audiotechnik speakers, subwoofers, power amps, and fed all of the above back to one of our premier digital mixing desks

We also supplied numerous Shure wireless mics, which were also available for the weddings speeches. We then completed the set-up with a professional DJ booth, including a set of top-of-the-range Pioneer digital decks listed on the DJ’s rider request. 

Lastly, we set about installing the wedding dance floor and matching backdrops. Together with the couple, we decided that a 12m x 6m dance floor was the best option given the available footprint, and they chose our white starlit dance floor. We then completed the dance floor and stage area with a couple of matching starlit backdrops and drapes to help everyone get in the party mood.
