Supplier: Event Equipment, 01829 289888, sales@eventequipmentltd.co.uk, www.eventequipmentltd.co.uk

Details: Working alongside Hawarden Castle Pavilion as preferred suppliers, Event Equipment helped to deliver a tailored lighting package. The pavillion was used on this occasion for its WC facilities and for food preparation, and the team provided wireless LED uplighters positioned inside to create a warm inviting glow that matched the colour scheme of the day.

Externally, the bridal party had opted for a large sailcloth marquee as their guest numbers were quite large. The brief was to make the whole site an inviting place to be after dark. High level festoon lighting in front of the marquee provided an illuminated an area for guests to sit and talk on Event Equipment’s bespoke cable drum furniture. The company also installed a low-level run of festoon as a walkway which linked the pavilion with the marquee.

Marquee WeddingInternally, the marquee was illuminated with filament style festoon in the roof, and uplighters around the perimeter. Connecting these to a dimmer gives greater control of light output, and really helps to set the mood in the evening.

A combination of high-powered colour changing LED fixtures were used to illuminate the surrounding parkland’s trees along with more traditional HQI floods. All the additional lighting was powered using one of Event Equipment’s super silent generators.

Feedback: The bride said: “Lots of guests commented on how pretty and magical the marquee and grounds looked. The team from Event Equipment were helpful and extremely knowledgeable, giving advice on how to enhance the look and create a stunning marquee day and night.”
