The Lancaster London received the Kudos AV touch in September for the wedding of Dilpreet and Gurvir in what was arguably one of the weddings of the year!
Kudos AV managed this spectacular wedding and you may have even already heard about it! It is of course, the wedding with the amazing projection mapped cake!
Here at Kudos AV we strive to be different, innovative and creative. When we met Dilpreet & Gurvir, we knew straight away that this wedding would be the talk of the town. We thank them both for allowing us to unleash our creative potential.
One way to be different is to do something that’s not expected and never seen before! When Maya Dahlia Cakes approached us with the idea of adding a 21st Century technology twist to a wedding cake we jumped on the idea! We bring you, together with Maya Dahlia Cakes, the projection mapped wedding cake.
This project began with production meetings at Kudos HQ with Maya Dahlia Cakes to brainstorm and finalise ideas. The creative and logistics team at Kudos AV then got to work on the content for the 3D Projection as well as doing their calculations for the projection mapping itself. These were relayed to Krishma at Maya Dahlia and a model cake was created ready for testing in the workshops here at Kudos AV.
The Projectors were beautifully tucked away in a square hanging frame over the dancefloor which was decorated with their usual class and magnificence by the team at Essential Wedding Hire. The 2 projectors used for this were the incredible 10k Luman Projector Short Throw Lens.
The cake was only a fraction of the work that went into transforming the Lancaster London Hotel. Incredible bespoke work with never seen before pieces from Essential Wedding Hire created a seamless partnership between the décor and the lighting production.
We created 3D regenerations of the production to provide an insight for what was to come. We worked closely with the couple and Madhu’s Catering in finalising the table arrangements, dance-floor and walkways.Dilpreet and Gurvir had an excellent motif designed which signified many things personal to them. It truly did add a class touch to this already magnificent occasion. They presented this motif to us and we implemented it on the bar, dancefloor and also on the DJ booth. Using our in house craftsman and workshop we were able to create this and much more. Our team also created the top table stage and also a stage for a live performance by the one and only, Jazzy B!
Andy from Essential Wedding Hire, was able to use his creative zeal and after deliberation with Dilpreet and Gurvir put on a truly amazing dispay of décor. They created a hanging candle wall for the top table which included 800 candles! By liasing with us we were able to create a rigging and truss structure which allowed Andy to use chandeliers as centre pieces by hanging them in over chosen tables. The finished look was truly breath-taking.
No event is complete without carefully managed lighting and here at Kudos AV we take pride in being industry leaders in exactly this. With Robe beam and wash lighting, table pinspot an array of lighting displays were created which suited the mood as the night progressed. The use of our Absen A3 Pro LED screen added the finishing touch to the bespoke DJ Stage.
A beauty of the Nine Kings Suite at Lancaster London is the slow rising entrance doors which offer the ultimate reveal. As if this reveal wasn’t surprising enough for the guests, they were then amazed by the events that followed.
Dilpreet & Gurvir made their grand enterance and then took centre stage for the reveal of the projection mapped cake. They then performed their superb first dance to a great mix of a Punjabi Song and John Legend. Shortly after, the surpise guest on the night was introduced. Jazzy B, absolutely rocked the dancefloor with his live band and leading Kudos Music DJ ,Jas Johal then took the party well into the night and it is safe to say that once the party started, no one wanted it to stop!
With guests overwhelmed by the decor, music, lighting and food, you would be hard pressed to look beyond the suppliers that formed this perfect event. At Kudos AV we are delighted to have been involved in this amazing wedding and we wish the couple and families well for the future.
We strive to be pioneers in this industry, for both event management and production. The projection mapped cake and the production that transformed the Nine Kings Suite at Lancaster epitomises what we strive to achieve.
