There’s nothing quite like a wedding. Perhaps the most momentous day of your life, you’re going to want to ensure that everything is as near to perfect as possible. But unless you just happen to have a warehouse full of event equipment, you are going to need to invest in wedding equipment hire services to make your big day the special occasion you’ve always dreamt about.
From getting the venue lighting right to ensuring that the live wedding band you hired sounds incredible, you will likely need the help of event production experts to ensure everything goes according to plan.
That’s where we come in. Here at On Tour Events, we have helped hundreds of happy couples put on spectacular wedding over the years. Whether you’re looking for a small, rustic wedding production, or the most extravagant affair your budget allows, we are on hand to make it happen.
So before we run you through some of our most popular wedding services, let’s quickly take you through some of our wedding credentials.
On Tour Events Provide First-Class Wedding Event Production Services
As mentioned, we are no strangers to weddings. While we initially started out offering audio visual hire services for conferences, we’ve since become more and more involved in consumer markets, with weddings taking a prominent spot.
What started off as a few per year soon snowballed in dozens, and at present, we now receive a wedding enquiry on at least a weekly basis, if not more often. Of course, word of mouth has spread over the years. We’ve benefited from continuous recommendations after guests at our wedding productions have been impressed by our turnkey wedding production services.
Once again, we only started on a small scale in this industry, initially offering wedding lighting hire in Surrey before expanding to offer more equipment hire services to this specific industry. We rapidly graduated from supplying wedding production services to local weddings in Surrey and London, to jetting out to locations all over Europe to helping couples with their extravagant celebrations.
One that sticks in the memory was a wedding reception that took place at a venue that was perched on top of some imposing cliffs that overlooked the Mediterranean. As if the setting wasn’t fairytale enough, the bride and groom wanted us to design and install a wedding stage that would sit over the swimming pool! We had to bring many heads together to pull that one off (including underwater welders!), but we made it happen.
Thus, when we tell you that we’ve seen and done everything when it comes to weddings, we aren’t kidding!
We’ve continued to expand our services in this growing market to the point that we now offer everything you could possibly need for your wedding production, right down to supplying you with the correct knife, forks, and spoons.
So with that in mind, let’s run you through some of our key wedding equipment hire services.
Hire Professional Sound Equipment for Your Wedding
Sound equipment hire is usually one of the services that appears first on the list for engaged couples or wedding planners. When you actually pause to think about the influence sound will have on your wedding, it’s not hard to see why.
First of all, you have those all-important and often emotional wedding speeches. Whether it’s the father of the bride or the best man trying to crack his best jokes, it’s vital that your guests can hear what is being said, whether they are sat at the head table or the back of the room. Tinny or poor sound will ruin these unforgettable moments, which is why you need to hire the best microphones in the business.
Next, you’ve got the evening’s entertainment to consider. What would a live band or DJ sound like with substandard equipment? The answer: pretty terrible. Being the professional events company we are, we don’t just have PA speakers available for hire. We have all types of sound equipment in stock, including but not limited to amps, stage monitors, subwoofers, and mixing desks.
Better yet, if you simply can’t afford for anything to go wrong on your special day, we can supply sound engineers who’ve worked on events as significant as live music concerts at the O2 arena to mix the sound for your band on the night. How’s that for taking the stress out of the situation?
But sound is only one aspect of what is an incredibly multifaceted event, so let’s move onto another essential element of your wedding production – lighting.
Hire Wedding Lighting in Surrey, London, and Beyond with On Tour Events
Wedding lighting is another critical aspect of your wedding celebration. You should never underestimate its extraordinary ability to completely transform the look and feel of a wedding venue. To that point, we always recommend wedding venue uplighting to our clients.
If you’re unaware, wedding uplighters are standalone lighting fixtures positioned on the floor that beam light upwards (hence the name). They are brilliant for accentuating specific features of a venue as well as setting the tone and mood of the venue. You can even use them to light up the exterior of your chosen venue, which is an increasingly popular request.
The beauty of them is that they are so versatile. Not only are they wireless, battery-operated devices (meaning you can place them pretty much anywhere within reason), but they can also beam of a colour of your choosing or run through a broad spectrum of tones that match your overall wedding theme.
Moving on, there are so many other event lighting fixtures that can have a significant impact on your festivities. Second only to uplighters in popularity is festoon lighting (also referred to as fairy lighting).
With the rise of marquee-based weddings, adorning these giant tent-like structures with fairy lights is becoming a given. However, we believe they are just as impactful with more “traditional” venues. For instance, they act as brilliant decoration for specific breakout/relaxation areas (particularly outdoors) when those dancing feet need a rest!
We couldn’t move on from this section without mentioning another given – stage and disco lighting. Most wedding receptions take place in the evening, and without lighting fixtures to light up the stage or the dance floor, then you’re going to struggle to get people in the mood to party!
Speaking of which, it’s going to be even more difficult to get people up and dancing without a dance floor, so let’s spend a few moments telling you about our wedding dance floor hire options.
Wedding Dance Floor Hire from On Tour Events
What’s a wedding celebration without a dance floor?! Not only does it take centre stage for that critical first dance as a married couple, but beyond a certain point in the evening, it becomes the focal point for the entire occasion.
The good news is that we have plenty of options for you when it comes to dance floors. We leave you spoilt for choice. No matter your preferred style, colour, or size, we can supply whatever you need.
We have a range of finishes, including the traditional “wooden” look or the ever-popular white wedding dancefloor. Our top-end dance floors also come with built-in LED lighting to give the dance floor a starlit appearance, which is really quite magical when the lights are lowered for that momentous first dance.
We can pretty much go as big as you like too. We know that extravagant affairs such as Asian weddings require a huge dance floor to accommodate all of the guests. That’s why we offer to build dance floors as large as 40ft x 40ft, which is big enough for any celebration!
Lastly, we also have what you might call “novelty” dance floors for those looking for something a bit more unique to act as an attraction in itself. For instance, we have dance floors that light up different colours in authentic 70’s and 80’s fashion. Perfect if you’re a huge Saturday Night Fever fan!
Hire a Wedding Stage from London’s Leading Stage Hire Company
Another critical element of your wedding production is your wedding stage hire. The stage you hire for your big day will likely play several roles. It might act as your entranceway to the dance floor for that first dance. Having been present at hundreds of weddings now, we have to say there’s something undoubtedly special about descending tiered steps to take your first dance together.
But your wedding stage will be so much more than that. It will likely play host to your live entertainment, for example, and, more often than not, your stage is the focal point for your entire evening of celebration. That’s why you want to ensure what you hire is perfect.
Fortunately, here at On Tour Events, we boast an unrivalled selection of modular designs that can be tweaked and altered to become precisely what you need them to be. Despite being pre-set designs, the sheer amount of customisation options (which includes branding and logos) available mean we can make them look as though we designed them specifically for your event.
But what if you want to invest in something genuinely unique. Guess what? We can do that too! We are blessed with a talented in-house design team that can turn any stage concept you may have into reality. Better yet, we use cutting-edge 3D rendering technology to show you what your stage production will look like before we even lift a finger on manufacturing – guaranteeing that you’ll love your stage when the special day rolls around.
Of course, we don’t merely produce or supply stages. We provide all of the accompanying furniture, props, drapes, and anything else you want to adorn your wedding stage. We only focus on all-inclusive solutions, so you have less to worry about in the run-up to your nuptials.
