Specializing in lighting and beyond Ormonde Productions has raised the bar on event design. Learn more about this amazing company below!
1. How did Ormonde Productions come to be?
Ormonde Productions has been around since the mid 1980s. What started off as a
DJ/entertainment company and slowly morphed itself into what we are today mostly in part
due to the demand for more. As the wedding industry grew, so did the expectations of
our clients. They weren’t just looking for a fun party with good music, food, and flowers,
they wanted to create a gorgeous environment and for the past 20 or so years that’s
what we’ve done!
2. Do you offer services beyond lighting?
While lighting is our specialty we try to position ourselves as a full service, lighting,
design, and production company. Much more goes into an event aside from lighting,
however without great lighting, all of the other design elements can get lost. The
majority of the additional services we provide allow us to fully transform the spaces
we’re working in to fit our client’s vision. Draping, dance floors, stages, furniture, bars, video, and a huge variety of different hanging décor and design elements. We also
provide a lot of behind the scenes services necessary for the success of an event
such as sound, generators, and power distribution.
3. What is trending in lighting for weddings and events?
Right now as a whole with weddings and events we’re seeing more and more of our
clients choosing unique, nontraditional venues. Industrial spaces, museums, libraries,
and art galleries. With that, we’re seeing a huge increase in clients coming to us looking to enhance and bring out the uniqueness of these spaces.
4. What is one piece of advice you give to brides?
Wedding planning can be stressful and overwhelming. Hire the right people and be
upfront with them when it comes to your vision and budget. Assembling a
strong, experienced team of vendors will make the whole process so much more
seamless, especially if they have experience working together.
Also, when it comes to your vendors take the time to setup a consultation with them.
We are always encouraging our clients to come into our showroom to meet with
us in person. It is the best way for us to get to know our clients and for our clients to
develop a better sense of who we are, what we can do, and what can be done within
5. How far are you willing to travel to provide your services?
The majority of our events are in the Rhode Island, Massachusetts area but we love to
travel and usually do so a handful of times each year. We’ve formed relationships with
planners outside of our local network that over the years have brought us on to events
up and down the east coast.
