This afternoon I’m happy to introduce a guy who can give your wedding that extra sparkle. Martin of Brides Up North Featured Supplier Carta Projects (incorporating Starlight Wedding Hire) can add twinkle to your wedding teepee, marquee, function room, ballroom or even a village hall. If you’ve got the imagination, he’s got the lighting. And he’s offering a very special 10% off for Brides Up North readers…
Carta Projects was formed last July, drawing on a 15 year career in technical theatre & 10 years in TV production, I decided to go back to my roots, providing and installing technical equipment for clients. All our products incorporate LED technology, therefore we are an eco-friendly equipment supplier to the wedding and event industry, having a fantastic ‘carbon footprint’ and green credentials.
Starlight Wedding Hire was set up to appeal to discerning brides and grooms. We offer wedding packages in various price brackets so that the client is aware of the total cost upfront.
We stock LED fairy lights, LED festoons, LED star-cloths, LED up lighting, LED projections, LED circle bars, LED dance-floors,LED mood lighting, LED effects and are soon to stock LED furniture.
Who makes up the team and what are your qualifications/ experience?
Carta Projects consists of two full-timers and freelance specialist technicians for deployment whenever and where-ever! I am the Director of the company and the lead project manager and equipment specialist. I have specialism in technical stage management, event technical management, stage & TV rigging and working at height. I also have the credentials of a TV production buyer, allowing me the ability and access to hire and purchase almost anything for any event – no matter how weird! Jo Radmall fulfils all the company administration, & Anil Patel is our senior technician, bringing his huge smile to your event – delivering and installing your equipment and also trained to complete any PAT testing of electrical products. Our freelance staff are fully experienced professionals from the event, wedding and theatrical industries.
Why should a Bride consider LED lighting hire for her wedding?
LED lighting is an inexpensive way to TOTALLY transform your wedding reception (inside & outside) from a white box room,into a colourful reception - the bride can choose whatever colour they wish. They can have static colours, slow fading colours or eccentric ‘disco’ chasing light patterns. We also provide bespoke LED projections onto floors and walls with the happy couple’s names or any text they should desire.
Why does LED lighting make a wedding special and how can it enhance the décor of the celebration? Brides can hire a white dance floor and a white LED starry star-cloth alongside LED up-lighters. Huge sparkly mirror balls can also give a fantastic effect!
Tell us about your mobile bar hire and managed bar service?
We have a stunning 4.5 m LED circle bar available to hire, it is gorgeous as a cocktail bar, a bottle beer bar or even a water bar. We also work with the professional cocktail slingers at Spiritus to provide a first class cocktail experience. We can provide sumptuous cocktail menus or champagne receptions.
Tell us about your LED dance floors?
We have the ONLY circular white LED starry dance Floor in the UK. Stand out from the rest: instead of ‘standard’ square dance floors go circular! Wow your guests with a stunning 15′ diameter circle dance floor filled with LED stars in a twinkly wedding whirl!
Why is your equipment the best?
All our products use LED technology, our bar uses lightweight stainless steel and aluminium and we also provide a PAT testing service, allowing any wedding or event client to get their equipment tested before being taken to the venue.
What sets you apart from other lighting companies?
We stock bespoke event ideas and stunning first class equipment.
What can a couple who book you expect on the day?
We can either work directly with the clients to provide all the best event equipment, or liaise with your wedding planners to create the most fantastic wedding reception!
Can you give us an idea on price?
Can you do a discount for Brides Up North readers?
I would love to offer a 10% offer to your readers if they mention this feature in any quotation request. Not available anywhere else!
