09/05/2009
Events We hired to: 10
A Closer Look:
Wedding in Berkshire
Equipment hire list:
A range of LED Uplighting and structural lighting
A range of out door lighting
Turning up we see a beatiful silk lined marquee, the client decided not to go with the same compnay for their uplighting as it was static (Standard Lamps) and it actually worked out to be quite a bit more expensive than our most expensive LED Lamps. We do say to people when it comes to purchasing equipment you do get what you pay for! When it comes to hiring you most definately need to shop around and see examples of what you are getting first! The scheme for this marquee was blue purples and reds We used qui9te alot of LED units including Par 56, Par 64, LED Battons and LED Floods. We chained all of the LED through a DMX desk so that all the colours would stay the same until the evening when the client wanted the whole marquee to move to the music. So come 21:00 the DMX settings are changed and all of the LED are Flashing changing colour etc with the beat of the music. Unfortunately we dont stay at any events so we didnt get to see it but the client was extremely happy with the results!!

Full Power distrobution
When we hire lights and are going into any Oxford venue "dark" with just photo's of the layout and design of the interior it can be quite intemidating if you dont know what you are doing
We have been lucky enough to design the lighting setups for quite a few events in the time that ACDisco Lighting and PA Hire has been running, most of which have been without seeing the venue in full!
This event was no exception, we spent the first 10 minutes examining the power and the most efficent use of the lighting. 1 hour later we had left after setting thelighting up during the day.
So we had to visualise what the lights would look like when it got dark!
When we returned at 2am to collect the lighting system which the client had hired,
we drove towards the venue to see bright green vivid looking trees followed closely by an extremely bright Aqua/Blue coloured barn
Pulling up whilst the last of the Party Goers stumbled off to their taxi, we walked inside to be greated by the mother of the bride,
all i can say is that we were booked for her next daughters wedding straight away, even though the other daughter is single!!
