Depending on the venue, we do try to encourage brides (although many don’t need any encouragement!) to place their wedding cake in the centre of the room. By doing so, you create a wonderful focal point as the guests enter the wedding breakfast room. It also enables your guests to get closer to the cake and marvel over the detail – 360 degrees. So much better than having your cake stuck in a dark corner. You will also enable your photographer to get much better ‘cake cutting’ pictures too.
Furthermore, if you haven’t already considered special effects lighting for your wedding day, then I beg you to build it into your budget today! We have worked on some amazing weddings and event productions and I can honestly say that the ‘icing on the cake’ is the effects lighting that is used to bring the party to life.
Lighting effects can create the most dramatic ambience, whether your venue is a church hall or a royal palace. And, if you want your wedding cake to look absolutely spectacular, then having it lit up in the centre of the room is the most dramatic effect you could possibly create.
We have worked with lots of production companies but if you are looking for a recommendation, then we would highly endorse Effect Event - managed and owned by Duncan Owen. Duncan and his team have ‘lit up’ many many events across London and the South East – from small corporate dinners to the grandest of weddings. Not only very experienced and talented in what they do, they are a really down to earth bunch of guys that are just easygoing and great to work with.
I have posted a few examples here of our wedding cakes that have been lit up, centre stage. My favourite of these images is the first one – this was actually Effect Event at One Lombard Street in London. This venue has the most incredible dome ceiling and the lighting against the night sky was just ‘WOW’
