Summer Season at Kew Gardens

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.”

Town Hall Address President Barack Obama

President Obama’s Town Hall Address to 500 young UK leaders as part of his farewell tour

After a formal tender process Oxygen were selected, by the American Embassy, to produce the event with just 4 days’ notice. The event was a Town Hall address at Lindley Hall in which President Obama addressed 500 young UK leaders. Extensive staging, lighting and audio were required whilst being acutely aware of the security aspects of the event.

As a part of his London trip Obama spoke at the Town Hall event of the successes and frustrations of his presidency and his hopes for the future before throwing the floor open to questions from his young audience.
Working alongside Lindley Hall, Oxygen provided lighting, audio, staging, flags and furniture as well as a power distribution package and two synchronized 250kva generators all with just 4 days’ notice.

“As I mentioned Saturday, we cannot thank you enough for your help in making the town hall event come off so smoothly, and I hope Oxygen and the Embassy will get to work together again in the future.”
