A beautiful intimate wedding at Kew Gardens under COVID19 restrictions
Tom and Lizzie held their beautiful intimate wedding at Kew Gardens under Government COVID19 restrictions with 15 of their closest friends and family.
The ceremony and wedding breakfast were both held in the stunning surroundings of the Nash Conservatory, a truly breath-taking venue and Lizzie and Tom ensured the day was filled with so much love, laughter, personal touches and pretty details including a beautiful meadow aisle under the backdrop of a beautiful autumn day. The venue acted as the perfect centre stage for their very special day.
We feel truly honoured to be part of people’s special days and being involved in a micro wedding makes us incredibly proud to do what we do, adding the finishing touches to carefully planned details and being able to watch these moments come to life.
We can’t wait to continue to work with more couples and more special moments!

Tonight we will be supporting the #WeMakeEvents Global Action Day which is taking place over 25 countries. New Zealand will kick off proceedings at 8pm local time. (8am UK time) and from there will pass the baton around the world.
#WeMakeEvents is campaigning the government for significant financial support for the people and companies in the events sector supply chain, to reflect the ongoing lockdown of live events and pathways for getting our industry back to work.
We are joining in coming together with our industry to Stand As One for the Global Day of Action at 8pm tonight and will #LightInRed Freemasons Hall to show that the industry is on red alert and needs urgent support. We do this to show people what will be lost if we allow this creative, vibrant, and cultural industry to fall.

Oxygen kicks off a new exciting venue partnership relationship with a conference for Sky Media
Oxygen has been working closely with Street Feast at their Hawker House venue, a warehouse style event space. We were asked to produce a conference set for Sky’s ‘Media Forum’ for 400 delegates, the first such event to be held in the venue.
We designed and produced an eye catching conference which highlighted the urban architecture of the venue. All staging elements were designed and built in house and our services included included lighting, audio, AV, staging and stage set.
Following the days conference, a beach party was created in the outdoor car park space. Delegates were treated to a selection of Street Feast’s famous street food vendors including B.O.B’s Lobster and Meat Hock whilst the space was themed with sand and deck chairs. Delegates were entertained by a DJ and steel band.
This was a fantastic chance for us to produce an event in this space, as our newest venue partner. We love the flexibility that the space has to offer, it offers clients the ability to have a lot of fun with their briefs to create inspiring events.
We have been making the making the most of the Great British Summer Time throughout the summer season at Kew Gardens, delivering a number of events ranging from corporate summer parties to stunning summer weddings.
Some of the highlights have included a summer party for Wella Hair working alongside Ampersand, complete with festoon and colourful paper lanterns, colourful summer lighting and outdoor furniture which all came together to create a summer festival feel within the venue for a cocktail reception.
Working with Lucy Franks Wedding Co-ordinator we created a 1920s themed wedding. Soft floral lighting projections created a canopy across the ceiling which was complimented with soft amber up lighting to the room. The 1920s themed band played alongside a DJ and working alongside the brief of keeping it simple but impactful, we designed a bespoke LED moving light rig which really upped the tempo and looked stunning.
The bride sent a big thank you from her honeymoon in Hawaii “I wanted to drop you a note to say a big thank you for the fabulous lighting and production you created for our wedding last Sunday. It all looked stunning and the lighting worked beautifully, especially the leaf projections on the ceiling of the Orangery. We had a wonderful day and we’re very pleased with how it all came together.”
