The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Wedding Production Services to Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel

Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel is one of Surrey’s most exclusive wedding venues. This charming barn-based venue in Dorking offers a rustic yet contemporary setting for couples looking to tie the knot. In particular, the charming Tithe Barn overlooks the River Mole and offers incredible views of Box Hill, making it the perfect place for a wedding ceremony or reception. 

It was to provide the setting for our first wedding of 2022, a lovely intimate affair that took place across the bank holiday weekend. So, with the background set, let’s tell you all about our work on this project! 

The Sound & Light Hire Company Provide Event Production Services to Wedding in Dorking, Surrey

As mentioned, we were tasked with providing a full suite of event production not already provided by the venue. In this specific case, that turned out to be everything bar the tables, chairs, and dance floor. 

Our job was to transform the barn area into a space that reflected the wedding decor ideas the couple had come up with. So, we initially decorated the space with white venue drapes hung from strategic points along the wooden ceiling beams and from the Minstrel’s gallery, right down the floor in some places.

We then ran wedding festoon lights across the wooden ceiling beams and wrapped the vertical beams in fairy lights to give the room a magical feel. We finished the decorative/mood lighting setup with a couple of banks of wireless uplighters on either side of the room, which lit up the walls in a rich shade of purple.

We added the finishing touches lighting-wise by custom-manufacturing and installing a neon letter lighting installation with the couple’s name and the wedding date. 

Professional Sound and Lighting Equipment Supplied to Leading Surrey Wedding Venue

Once we had taken care of the decor-related production, it was time to move on to the technical infrastructure. Given the nature of the venue (and the equipment they had in-house), there was no need for a stage or dance floor, which we typically supply for a wedding of this size. 

Thus, our focus turned to supplying and installing professional sound and lighting equipment. We started with a pair of RCF PA speakers and subwoofers for the DJ and his requested Pioneer DJ system before rigging a truss over the dance floor area to affix the dance floor lighting fixtures, including a couple of Big-Eye moving heads, a laser machine, and some LED disco lights

It certainly wasn’t the most extensive wedding sound and lighting setup we had ever installed. However, we think we hit the nail on the head with this one. The dance floor lighting setup was easily visible from across the room and looked great as the bride and groom took to their first dance as a married couple.
