Ben & Olivia's big day

Here at Cascade Productions we specialise in arranging multi-site conferences for large companies, but that isn’t to say that we don’t like to feel the flutter of confetti in our hair now and again! That’s why we were thrilled to be asked by Ben & Olivia to assist with the production management of their recent wedding…

Briefed to film highlights from the big day and manage tech requirements, we certainly made it to the church on time for this multi-camera shoot to be directed by our Technical Specialist! We fitted a small tie-piece lapel mic to the groom to ensure that the whole service was captured on audio, whilst the camera crew unobtrusively filmed from the aisles.

Once the vows were exchanged and the happy couple were declared husband and wife, the team divided. One camera stayed behind to capture the confetti moments at the church, whilst the other moved on to the second location – a stunning country house hotel in Cheshire – to capture the couple’s entrance.

Having attended the venue earlier in the day to ensure the designated set, staging and AV were all rigged to satisfaction, the guests moved seamlessly through to the main room for the wedding breakfast and reception.

A number of entertainment acts had been sourced to perform which were managed on-site by the Cascade team and also filmed during their performances (along with the speeches and first dance of course!)

As the evening drew to a close and the wedding party danced the night away, we packed up our equipment leaving just a little love behind for Ben & Olivia - the new Mr & Mrs Alcock.

The footage will now be edited in-house to deliver a highlighted and extended story of the wedding.

From all at team Cascade – a huge congratulations, guys!
