On Monday 19 August 2019, we were delighted to provide the production for Felix and Marzia’s wedding in The Temperate House, Kew Gardens.
It is always a pleasure providing our services at all kinds of events and we feel confident undertaking the responsibility to work with high profile clients. With only four months to prepare for the big day, we couldn’t have done this without the efficient communication and outstanding event designs from The Isle of You. We believe that trust is paramount in any partnership, so we maintain confidentiality across the board and put our clients at ease throughout the whole process.
The beautiful couple, Felix and Marzia, are best known for their internet personalities. Felix, i.e PewDiePie, has over 101 million subscribers and ranks as the second-most subscribed and eleventh-most viewed profile on YouTube, so it was crucial that the visuals for their wedding were exceptional… and so they were!
We went to great lengths to truly understand what the couple wanted for their special day. Working closely to their brief with The Isle of You and showing them around the venue, we were able to deliver a bespoke, personal and impactful service for a day that will remain with them. Marzia shared her excitement on her socials, saying “Everything about the evening was so magical” and “it was the most beautiful day, which I will treasure forever.”
Held in what was once the largest glasshouse in the world, the stunning Temperate House is home to one of the most diverse and largest living plant collections in the world. We have worked closely with our friends at Kew Gardens to ensure the logistical procedures are in place and everyone works carefully in this environment as the guests enjoyed their seated dinner catered by Caper & Berry.
The wonderful Clíona and Lisa at The Isle of You ensured the day looked marvellous, and the tight turnaround ran effortlessly. From wheeling in the first flight case, we had two hours to set up all our production. Our role predominately involved providing lighting and sound but also consisted of contributing to furniture and providing the stage and dance floor for the magical first dance. An insight into what we provided includes an impressive 95 up-lighters, a rustic disco lighting package and a remarkable 150 metres of festoon lighting (the first time anyone has ever put festoon in The Temperate House!).
A personal highlight for us at Oxygen Event Services Ltd. was capturing Felix and Marzia’s reaction as they saw their vision come to life for the first time. Our soft, elegant production complimented by warm, rustic colours left the couple glowing with excitement. The couple expressed their joy, with PewDiePie sharing “Our wedding day was the best day ever! Really couldn’t have asked for a better wedding. Everything was perfect and I’m just so happy.”
