On the 4th October 2018, former Marine, Shane Maddison and PR Manager, Sarah Roustoby got married live on air, on ITV Daytime’s, This Morning. Broadcast live from the Royal Albert Hall in London the wedding marked the 30th anniversary of the popular show and was the highlight of a week of celebrations. It was also the first wedding ever held in the iconic venue’s 150-year history.
Trickbox TV supplied ITV with a multi-camera fly-away solution that included six HD fibre camera channels, and a fly-away control area with positions for the ITV Production team and Trickbox engineers. Trickbox also managed all the connectivity for the live broadcast, which included three independent circuits to ITV (a main and two backups). As well as the all-important nuptials, the wedding included a performance by The Kingdom Choir who also serenaded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their big day in May.
“We’re delighted to have been asked to work on this project for the second year running,” said Liam Laminman, Trickbox TV’s Managing Director. “Our years of experience working in live television enables us to create a relaxed environment within a high pressure situation.”
