WEDDING EVENT PRODUCTION
ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''WEDDING PRODUCTION'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
ON TOUR EVENTS IS ONE OF THE UK'S LEADING WEDDING PRODUCTION COMPANIES, OFFERS A RANGE OF WEDDING EQUIPMENT & EVENT SERVICES
When it comes to weddings, once you’ve picked a venue and a date, the “hard work” starts in earnest. There are so many elements to organise that it can feel a tad stressful. However, whether you’re calling in help from a wedding planning expert or you want to simplify the process, On Tour Events can help you lighten the burden of pulling together one of life’s most significant events.
We can supply all manner of production equipment to weddings, making your life so much easier. By dealing with one point of contact for so many event services, you can take a massive weight off your shoulders and focus on the equally important elements such as the bride’s dress or booking the evening entertainment.
So before we run you through the type of services we can provide for your wedding, let’s quickly run through what counts as wedding event production, so you know what to expect.
+WHAT IS WEDDING EVENT PRODUCTION?
Naturally, many elements make up a wedding (including makeup itself!). We like to tell our clients it’s perhaps better to take a step back for a moment and appreciate that your special day is more like a film or stage production than a celebration, given just how many pieces of equipment go into it.
For instance, you’ll need to hire professional sound equipment and lighting fixtures to accompany your live band and/or DJ. It goes without saying that they’ll also need a stage or a tiered platform to perform upon and provide a central focal point.
Then you’ve got the dance floor to take into accounts, the wireless microphones for the speeches, and more decorative features such as stage drapes and maybe even a stretch of red carpet for the added “wow” factor.
These are all parts of an overall “event production,” which is where we come in. We don’t just specialise in a service such as wedding event uplighting. We literally do it all. In the past, that was limited to anything technical or “non-style-related.” However, our wedding business has expanded as such that we can provide literally everything you could need to throw a celebration of a lifetime – right down to the cutlery!
So what are we talking about more specifically? Let’s give you a quick rundown of our wedding event production services!
+WEDDING EVENT LIGHTING
It doesn’t get much more important than your wedding lighting. From lighting up the dance floor to entice people to have a boogie to the mood lighting that can totally transform the look and feel of your wedding venue, lighting has a vital role to play in your big day.
We have dozens of different types of lighting fixtures and hundreds of specific models in stock, ready to go out on hire. We can also supply the truss structures from which to rig them, and we can set up and program lights to run certain patterns for you. When it comes to event lighting for weddings, it’s a case of your wish is our command!
+WEDDING STAGE & TIERED PLATFORMS
Very rarely will a wedding reception not require a stage. It’ll host the speeches, the live performances, and the DJ to round off the night. It also provides a focal point for all those dancing guests to congregate around. In some cases, you may even want to get married on a stage or platform.
Once again, On Tour Events have a vast selection of stages for hire. We have our ever-popular white tiered wedding stages, as well as our more standard selection of modular stage platforms that we can customise with your wedding branding or initials. We can also provide carpeted stages and accompanying stage drapes in a wide range of colours to match your wedding theme
+PROFESSIONAL SOUND EQUIPMENT HIRE FOR WEDDINGS
It’s no good booking a well-respected local band or DJ and then not supplying them with the sound equipment they need to sound their best. We here at On Tour Events have everything imaginable on hand, from best-in-class PA speakers to amps, stage monitors, subwoofers, mics, and mixing desks to balance everything.
We can, if you wish, supply a sound engineer to run everything on the day for you, including mixing the sound for your live entertainment to ensure there are no hiccups. It’s your wedding day, after all – there are no repeats!
+MOBILE BAR, FURNITURE & CUTLERY HIRE FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY
As we mentioned, we now provide all manner of furniture and cutlery to your event too. From the knives and forks, right up to a LED-lit bar that can house six staff members and cycle through a range of exciting colours. Tables and chairs are no problem for us, and we have a huge selection of dance floors for you to choose from, including star-lit options!
As is the case with a lot of our event equipment hire services, we are flexible to meet your needs. If there’s something not listed here or on our website in the furniture department, we can source it for you, no problem. If there’s something you simply HAVE to have in your venue, just tell us what it is, and we’ll do the rest.
+WEDDING MARQUEE HIRE
As if providing the above event production services wasn’t enough, we can even supply you with the venue itself! We have a massive range of wedding marquees and teepees available for you to hire at below-market rates.
So if you’ve fallen in love with the idea of an outdoor wedding celebration, then we can help make your dreams come true! We are seasoned music festival event production partners, so we are used to setting up equipment in challenging locations. Therefore, if you think a marquee might not be possible at your chosen location, speak to us first to make sure!
+WEDDING LIVE STREAMING SERVICES
Not only can we help you to put together the best event possible, but we can beam it right across the globe too! We have developed a reputation as one of the UK’s leading event streaming companies, and we have already completed several successful wedding streams.
Although many happy couples have taken up this service as a necessity during the pandemic, now that restrictions have eased, it’s proving just as popular due to the benefits of letting those unable to attend watch proceedings from wherever they may please. It also makes the decisions about who makes the cut for the “day do” that much easier!
SOME PRICE EXAMPLES OF HOW MUCH WEDDING LIGHTING, STAGING & PA COSTS
Most weddings these days have live bands playing on the stage and a common request for us to design and deliver a tiered white carpeted stage for a wedding in either a hotel or a wedding marquee.
The standard wedding band has between 6 to 8 members in it so let's use that for this price example.We would suggest a stage size somewhere around 5 meter wide by 3 meters deep, now depending on the complexity of the stage design prices fluctuate but again let's assume you are going for a simple 3 tiered stage with no curved edges covered in white with fascia boards
On Tour Events would suggest a budget of around £1,200 £1,800 depending on location & access to where to stage is to be built. If the floor was to be uneven then the cost would increase, if your wedding is taking place in London, easy access to the venue & the floor is flat your spend less.
So you've booked a wedding marquee and you have around 150 to 250 guests attending, you've booked a DJ or live band and you want to make sure that the lighting is right.
How much does wedding lighting cost? On Tour Events will give you an example below:
In this example we're going to assume that no lighting can be hung or suspended from the roof of the marquee / wedding venue.
What we call in a trade a ''wedding lighting floor package'' would be appropriate for this.
Lighting package to cover 150 - 200 we would suggest a budget of somewhere around £1,000 to £2,000 this would not include suspending or hanging any lighting from the roof, but would include a lighting technician. Pricing example is based on your wedding being held in the London or Surrey areas.
Often a bride and groom or email as a picture of a wedding venue with the ceiling covered with gorgeous ''lighting effect'' which normally consists a pattern all over the ceiling often in tungsten.
This is what's called a ''Gobo Breakup Effect'' and is very common in the wedding and events industry as it can add texture to the walls, ceilings, floors or tables at your wedding. A common question is how much does this sort of wedding lighting cost? Costs depend on the size of the venue and how elaborate you want to.
Based on your average wedding of 100 to 150 guests where a client wants to cover the walls and ceilings of the wedding venue we would suggest a minimum budget of somewhere between £800 £1,500
