The Sound & Light Hire Company Supply Turnkey Wedding Event Production to Reception on Ravens Ait Island

There is undoubtedly no other Surrey wedding venue quite like Ravens Ait Island. A literal island in the middle of the Thames, those attending events here have the pleasure of catching the miniature ferry across the river to this venue with a difference.

While there are several different types of events hosted at this exclusive riverside venue, we were recently called in to provide a turnkey wedding event production solution for a couple getting married at the beginning of last autumn. 

The couple had opted for the dedicated marquee space for their reception, and we set about transforming it into the wedding reception venue of their dreams. So without further ado, let’s talk about the work we carried out to ensure the event was a resounding success. 

Event Production Provided to Ravens Ait Island in Kingston Upon Thames

The first aspect of our event production brief was decorating the space above and beyond those provided by the venue. We started with white wedding drapes, which we put in at each pillar of the framed marquee to cover up the steel bar structure. We then took the venue draping one step further by setting up ceiling-mounted starlit backdrops that hung over the dance floor area.      

Next, we then began rigging wedding fairy lights that criss-crossed from the marquee sides, ran along with the marquee ceiling, and met in the middle of the tent. These lights looked wonderful once darkness had fallen, really adding a magical feel to things. 

Lastly, on the non-technical side, we supplied and installed a wide range of LED furniture, including a mobile LED bar, poseur tables, and chairs. These were for the guests in and around the dance floor area. They were all programmed to cycle through a range of bright colours, and, once again, they really came into their own once darkness fell. 

Professional Sound, Lighting, and Dance Floor Supplied to Wedding at Ravens Ait Island 

Once we had taken care of all of the decorative elements of wedding event production, it was time to move on to the technical side of things. There was no need for a wedding stage for this event, and the live entertainment came in the form of a local DJ.

We made sure he had everything he needed and set up an attractive LED DJ booth for him to operate from. We then supplied and installed an immersive sound system that was more than ample for the 150 or so wedding guests in attendance. We then erected a small free-standing truss to which we attached the disco lighting fixtures, laser machines, and smoke machines.

Lastly, we laid an impressive 10m x 10m square dance floor, one of our white LED starlit models, which certainly impressed the guests. Many of them were itching to take it for a spin! With the dance floor taken care of, it was time to quickly check and double-check all devices before leaving the bride, groom, and their guests to it.

Upon returning the next day to dismantle and collect everything, we were told the event was a resounding success and that the bride and groom were delighted with the way the marquee both looked and sounded. We were obviously thrilled to receive such positive feedback.
