How big can wedding ice sculptures be?
Wedding ice sculptures can be up to 300kg in weight. We have many years of experience in making full ice bars (one of our regular wedding venues is the beautiful Peckforton Castle, which is perfectly sized for a fully-working ice bar). We’ve also been commissioned to make a life-size replica of a ‘Waltzer Booth’ the bride’s father had once built for his Fun Fair.
Can you make a wedding ice sculpture based on any design?
Feel free to come up with some truly unique, beautiful and personal ideas for your wedding ice sculpture – no need to choose from our existing portfolio. If you think you might like an ice sculpture, luge or bar at your wedding but aren’t sure of what design, we can talk you through what would mean the most to you and your family, and help it to fit perfectly in your venue.
Can you turn my wedding ice sculpture into a vodka luge?
Wedding sculptures can be transformed into vodka luges, with a little work. Ice luges are hugely popular at wedding receptions and are a fun way to serve drinks to your guests, but most importantly can be made to virtually any design you can imagine. We have created a skull luge for a gothic wedding, a fire engine luge for the fireman groom in another, and even a camel luge for a couple from Dubai who wanted a bit of ‘home’ with them.
What can ice sculpture bring to a wedding?
Ice sculptures can give many different effects to a wedding – they can be understated and classy, bold and fun or even functional, but no matter what purpose they serve they are guaranteed to be striking and beautiful.
Have you got experience creating ice sculptures for weddings?
We have worked with hundreds of couples planning their special day – in since starting up in 2006 we have made and delivered on average two ice displays or sculptures every single week! We have also worked with dozens of beautiful venues to create wedding decorations, and several list us as their recommended supplier of ice sculptures, which makes delivery and set-up incredibly simple, although even new venues are not a problem. We work closely with you to design unique and bespoke sculptures, through which you can tell the story of your relationship.
What ice sculpture designs are popular for weddings?
Popular wedding sculpture designs include large linked hearts, wreaths, names with wedding dates, birds kissing and initials.
Swans are a classic symbol of monogamy and are as popular in wedding ice sculptures as hearts and doves. However, there’s no reason you can’t go for something more personal and unique as no design is beyond our skill level and the design possibilities are endless. Maybe you fell in love over a mutual enjoyment of horror and sci-fi – you could have a sculpture of Freddy’s clawed hand, or a frozen Dalek to watch over the proceedings. In the past, we have created a 1960s Batmobile for a couple who loved all things Batman.
Can I get my wedding ice sculpture delivered anywhere in the UK?
No venue is too far for us – we’ve transported ice bars and table plans to the Republic of Ireland and ice sculptures for weddings in Aberdeen, on top of the already prolific amount of other ice sculpting work that we carry out throughout the world. Give us an hour and a half to set up your piece and a little time to de-construct it at the end of the night, then forget about our part of your big day and just enjoy the ice experience.
Can make my wedding sculpture colourful?
Incorporating colour into wedding ice sculptures is a simple way to match it beautifully with your theme. This can be achieved in two ways; either by using LED lighting or by incorporating physical objects such as jewellery, flowers or name plaques into the sculpture itself. They can also be used as centrepieces on the tables, dramatic pedestals for the wedding cake, or simply sit behind the happy couple to make for some striking pictures.
How much are ice sculptures for weddings?
The cost of a wedding ice sculpture varies depending on the number of ice blocks used to build it, the time it takes to complete and also the distance that it has to travel. All our ice sculptures are carved from hand, without the use of automated machinery and we’re always sure to work closely with you to produce the ice sculpture you have in your mind.
How do wedding ice sculptures not melt?
All our wedding ice sculptures melt eventually, but this will not start happening until the sculpture is delivered to your wedding at a pre-arranged time so that you can enjoy it for as much as possible. All sculptures are delivered with a drip tray, so excess water should not leak or drip anywhere unwanted.
How long do wedding ice sculptures last?
Wedding ice sculptures can last over 12 hours depending on the size of the piece, the design and where it is kept. Naturally, you can expect an ice sculpture to last less time sitting outside on a hot summer’s, as opposed to in an air-conditioned ballroom.
What is the point of wedding ice sculptures?
Wedding Ice sculptures can have other practical purposes besides decoration. Floating a wedding seating plan in ice is a great way to liven up a piece of information, while some of our clients have commissioned ornate frames made of ice which make for great photograph opportunities. Untouched ice displays like this can last over twelve hours and still look as good as new, as all of our sculptures are set up on lightboxes that catch any melting water – so there’s no need to worry about cold puddles on the floor!
How long does it take to make a wedding ice sculpture?
It can take between 3 and 12 hours to make a wedding ice sculpture depending on the size and design of the piece. In many cases, ice sculptures can be made weeks or months in advance and then stored in deep-freeze before being delivered in a refrigerated van to the wedding venue.
Are wedding ice sculptures sanitary?
Wedding ice sculptures are completely sanitary, each ice sculpture is constructed of sterile water and is delivered in a clean van. If you are planning on ordering an ice luge for your wedding, then you can pour drink into separate sterile shot cups, or use disposable spouts for each guest to ensure that luge remains sanitary.
