BC’s favourite events of 2015

Harry – Corporate 50th Anniversary Party – The Royal Academy of Arts

This amazing event took place in summer last year. We had meet and greet staff welcoming guests on arrival and staff serving strawberries and cream in the courtyard whilst listening to a string quartet play live. Guests were then taken through to the galleries for a drinks reception. There were various food stations with different cuisines from around the world for guests to enjoy.

Donnie – Cooley Event – Sushi Samba   

What a fantastic event! We exclusively hired all three floors of the venue and provided loads of branding for the client. The venue looked amazing with all the vinyl’s attached. We hired in an illusionist, a juggler, an amazing band and also a graffiti wall for guests to enjoy. Guests had a wonderful time and the client loved everything too!

Nicola – IM Festival – Bowood House and Gardens

One of the best events I have ever worked on! We helped produce the IM festival with the events team at Immediate Media. The surroundings were absolutely stunning and we were right by a gorgeous lake. We helped organise different workshops for guests to enjoy including duck herding, drumming, line dancing, circus skills and more. There was also street food stalls throughout the day we then had some amazing bands and DJs at the end of the day performing. Great event!

Andrea – Product Launch – Ham Yard Hotel

I have chosen this event as it was the first ever event I organised and ran by myself and for this reason, it is my favourite of 2015! The Windmill Room at the venue worked beautifully for the event and the client was very pleased with everything.

Niklaus – Wedding – The Rosewood

I think that my favourite event of 2015 was a wedding that we did at the Rosewood Hotel in Holborn. We provided full staging, lighting, white carpet and a dance floor for the beautiful wedding. This is my favourite event of the year as we were able to provide exactly what the bride and groom envisioned to help make their special day perfect. Helping the bride & groom capture their dream is one of the most rewarding feelings when working on events.

Maria – Corporate Party – The Grosvenor Hotel

My favourite event of last year was a corporate party I helped work on at the Grosvenor Hotel in Victoria. We had a 70s disco theme which looked great! We provided an LED multi-coloured dance floor, LED hula hooper, disco dancer vodka luge, roller skater hostesses and more. Such a fun event to work on.

Vanessa – Networking Event – The Dorchester

Nicola and I hosted a networking event for some of our lovely clients at the Dorchester last year. We had a private dinner at the Chef’s Table that overlooks the kitchens. Definitely the best meal I’ve ever had! The food was just outstanding and chef Henry Brosi would enter the room for each course and give us some information about the food and wine which was an extra special touch. Would definitely recommend this experience to everyone as it is one I’ll always remember!

Fairy Tale Fun

Fairy Tale Fun

The word on the event street is that the fairy tale theme is hot for 2015 with the releases of ‘Into the Woods’ and ‘Cinderella’ this year. Think elves, fairies, giants, mermaids, witches, gnomes, trolls and lots of magic!

We think this theme is a winner as there is so much you can do with it and you can make any venue into an enchanted fairy tale with some dramatic décor. This theme could work for any type of event and especially for any weddings this year as well as corporate summer parties.

Fun ideas for this theme are endless! You can decorate the room based on your favourite fairy tales and dress it as if you are in your very own magical castle. For example, you could set the tables with mismatched tea cups and plates and have tea pots as flowers so you have an ‘Alice in Wonderland’ feel. Or if you are fan of ‘Sleeping Beauty’, you can have crystal bowls as centrepieces filled with polished red apples.

Greens and browns work really well for this theme with lots of wood, grass and moss detail. You could also use loads of bright colours or some lovely pastels, every colour seems to fit in with this theme! Candles and lanterns would work perfectly too.

Get in touch with us now for some more ideas but in the meantime, take a look at our mini mood boards for some ideas of décor, food, table cards, table decorations and more…










How To Pick A Theme For Your Wedding

When it comes to deciding on a theme for a wedding there are many deciding factors. See below:

Likes and Dislikes – The most important deciding factor on a couples theme for a wedding is narrowing down exactly what their likes and dislikes are. Once this has been done the theme can be created around what the couples likes are.

Time of Year – The time of year can play a huge part when deciding on the overall theme for a wedding. Popular wedding themes are as follows: -

- Spring/Summer: Vintage, English Country Garden, Sparkle, and Versailles

Theme - Country Garden

- Autumn/Winter: Winter Wonderland, Gatsby, Rustic, Black and White, Fairy-tale

Winter Wonderland

Venue and Location – The style of venue chosen for a couple’s big day can influence the theme. Some brides and grooms come up with a theme first and then look for a suitable venue/location whilst others decide on the venue/location and base the theme around the venue. It all depends on what is more important to the couple.

Budget - Not all brides are fortunate enough to have an endless money pot for their wedding so it important that they are able to have the wedding of their dreams within the budget set aside. Therefore it is important to allocate some of your budget on theming but not all of it. Think about what will make the theme stand out for instance flowers, lighting and furniture.

Age – The age group of the bride and groom as well as their guests should be considered when deciding the theme. As some younger couples may want to go with a trend whilst others may want to keep it very classic and elegant.


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.
