The AX5s were dotted around and used to light trees and other foliage elements in the gardens, creating colour washes across the space and also bathing the areas in naturalistic white lighting.
“Wireless and battery-powered operation made Astera an obvious choice for an event and application like this,” commented Darren, mentioning that the fixtures’ IP65 rating was a welcome contingency should the weather have proved challenging!
Multiple tables were set up outside the main building to accommodate all the guests. With not much power available in this area, Astera again proved a great solution. No generators were required, which can be noisy and distracting as well as adding to the costs.
Due to prolonged torrential rain the week before, the venue space and configuration were changed two days ahead of the show, but this did not faze Darren and the team, as using AX1s and AX5s meant they had all the flexibility at their fingertips for a total redesign of the event layout at short notice … and were still able to light it beautifully using the same tools. The only other stage lights were eight high powered moving lights.
