WATCH NOW: The bridesmaid who appeared as a HOLOGRAM at her friend's wedding

26 Aug 2021

The bride's reaction to her bridesmaid's hologram was priceless


When Tupac appeared as a hologram at Coachella in 2012, the world watched in awe as the late rapper returned to the stage once more. The hologram craze has continued apace ever since, with iconic stars such as Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston all seen once more in posthumous form. Kanye West even gifted ex-wife Kim Kardashian a hologram of her father, Robert Kardashian, who passed away in 2003 to mark her 40th birthday. 

Hologram technology is now being used as a way of giving people the chance to be at an event they cannot attend in person - an idea catapulted by tech companies in a post-pandemic world.

ARHT Media is one tech company whose HoloPresence technology made the wishes of one bride come true, when she was surprised on her wedding day by a special appearance from her absent bridesmaid. 

Grounded in London due to Covid restrictions, bridesmaid Sarah Redington could not attend Brittany Smith's wedding in Niagra, Ontario. However, Sarah arranged with groom Jeff Gallant for her hologram to be beamed across the ocean, enabling her to give her wedding speech in real time. 

Commenting on the event, Jeff said: “Magical probably describes it best. Everyone there was unbelievably impressed. My aunts said they felt like they were on Star Trek!”
