We knew early on that we wanted some large ‘letter-lights’ to sit on the stage at our wedding, so I set to work trying to improve on the previous technique.
Mild steel, laser cut bases, with fully welded walls were put together in the workshop. As these were to be placed on a stage where there would be people milling about, I knew we had to seal the electrics away to avoid a tripping hazard. The backing in this case was simple low density fibreboard (LDF).
The lights have stood up well, even with their bare metal finish. One ‘M’ and the ampersand hang proudly on our walls at home as a constant reminder of the day.
