Private Security For Weddings

High-profile weddings are not just grand celebrations; unfortunately they can also be prime targets for unwanted attention and potential security threats. From paparazzi intrusion and uninvited guests to the safety concerns of high-profile attendees, the need for professional wedding security has never been more critical.


Private security ensures that these special moments remain private, protecting the couple, their families, and their guests from any disruptions. With the rise in high-profile weddings in cities like London, Dublin & Belfast, the demand for specialised wedding security services has surged, reflecting a growing awareness of the importance of safeguarding such significant events.

At VIS Protection, our wedding security guards are all military and police veterans, bringing a level of discipline, expertise, and reliability that is unmatched. Our team is adept at managing the unique challenges of high-profile weddings, ensuring that every aspect of security is handled with precision and discretion. From controlling access points and screening guests to providing close protection for VIP attendees, our bespoke security plans are tailored to meet the specific needs of each wedding.


With VIS Protection, you can focus on enjoying your special day, knowing that your safety and privacy are in the hands of seasoned professionals.

Private Security For Corporate Events

Corporate events often involve sensitive information, high-value assets, and influential attendees, making them potential targets for various security threats. From protecting intellectual property to ensuring the safety of executives and guests, professional security is essential for mitigating risks and maintaining a smooth, secure event environment.


In recent years, the need for private security at corporate events in cities like London and major business hubs in Ireland has grown significantly, driven by an increased focus on corporate responsibility and the high stakes involved in these gatherings.

At VIS, we provide top-tier security personnel, all of whom are veterans with extensive experience in managing complex security operations. Our team excels in delivering bespoke security solutions tailored to the specific needs of corporate events, whether it's an annual general meeting, product launch, or high-stakes conference.
