Wedding Trends

You may already be aware that Beyond Certainty specialise in sound and lighting for weddings and have built a reputation for making people’s dreams come true.  For us it’s important to be on top of the latest trends in the wedding industry so our ideas and recommendations to our clients are as fresh and exciting as possible.  

Technology will play a huge role in weddings this year and will go beyond just production elements. So, for example, with so many friends and family living abroad these days live – streaming the wedding for all to see is an increasingly more valid option. Weddings have changed drastically over the years and people are becoming more and more competitive in the attempt to trying to come up with innovative ideas for making their day more memorable. Food stations and dessert tables are becoming popular, as is having some form of entertainment for guests during the drinks reception from a pianist to a saxophonist.

Easter in London

From egg hunts to the famous London boat race, there is so much going on over Easter in London  this year.  So you can make the most of your Easter weekend, we have put together a list of the most egg-citing events you can participate in.

Kew Gardens – History of Chocolate – Friday 29th March – Sunday 14th April

Travel through time and discover the History of Chocolate at Kew Gardens. Absorb where our desire for chocolate originated. From the ritualistic use of cacao in Ancient Maya and Aztec culture; to sailing across the seas to Europe with the Spanish Conquistadors; and finally arriving in 17th century London, where it was only high society that could afford to indulge their sweet tooth in newly fashionable Chocolate Houses.

There are chocolate workshops with arts and crafts activities or the traditional Easter Egg Hunt on Sunday 31st March 2013.

The Boat Race 2013 – Sunday 31st March

Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race

It is that time of year again where the UK’s top Universities Oxford and Cambridge compete against one another. The traditional rowing race between the Universities began in 1829 and now it attracts around 250,000 spectators every year. The four-and-a-quarter mile course runs along the Thames from Putney Bridge to Mortlake and takes around 16 to 18 minutes.

Spitalfields City Farm – The Oxford v Cambridge Goat Race 2013 – Sunday 31st March

Goat Race

This unusual Goat Race is in its fifth year and becoming nearly as popular as its Thames based rival.

Two goats one named Oxford and the other Cambridge race around Spitafields City Farm, the same time as the Oxford and Cambridge Boat Race (4.50pm).

Out & About with BC

Each month BC goes on site visits, and this month the team went to The Metropolitan Hotel on Park Lane to check out the nearly refurbished meeting space.

The hotel itself is very modern and minimalist compared to the others on the Park Lane strip. It is also home to the famous Met Bar and Nobu.

All the meeting space is very white and fresh with natural daylight throughout perfect for product launches. We also took a peek at the amazing COMO Suite that had amazing views of Hyde Park.
