It's time to get excited about projection mapping, the newest trend in the world of weddings that brides everywhere are including in their big days.

What is Projection Mapping?

First things first, what actually is projection mapping? To put things as simply as possible, it's a new technology which is used to turn regular objects into a surface for video projection, so they begin to look like something different. It's often used to manipulate the appearance of buildings, turning them into 3D, interactive displays! 

The reason that projection mapping is becoming so popular at weddings is because it can completely transform a venue, turning even the most ordinary of buildings into something straight out of a fairytale. If you're looking for ways to include this exciting new idea in your day, check out these fab ideas...

1). The Dress

Imagine entering your wedding ceremony in a beautiful bridal gown which glows with magical charm. Well, projection mapping makes that possible! Bring your bridal gown to life with a breathtaking presentation of glowing lights.

2). Venue

Projection mapping works particularly well against building structures, so this is the perfect opportunity to personalise your wedding venue. Whether you want to transform the building into a multi-coloured, dreamlike paradise, or you want to show a gigantic slideshow of your favourite memories as a couple against the building's walls, the only limit is your imagination.

3). The Cake

Even your wedding cake can come alive with a little help from projection mapping! From a magical fireworks display to your favourite romantic quotes, don't miss this amazing opportunity to take your cake to the next level.

4). Personalise everything!

When it comes to adding a personalised touch to a wedding venue, nothing comes close to projection mapping. Inspired by this real engagement, why not create a slideshow of all your favourite memories as a couple and map it onto the walls of your venue to create a dramatic and romantic display?

Magicians, fireworks and much more...
