Want to add the real wow-factor to your wedding? (let’s face it, we all do). Well, finding the right wedding uplighting could be the answer.
The right lighting, in the right places, can make any venue more beautiful. And we mean jaw-droppingly, breathtakingly, OMG beautiful!
Here are some quick tips to think about:
Highlight, Don’t Outshine
Uplighting should complement your venue, bringing out all its best features. Of course, this works really well with old and ornate architecture because there tend to be lots of nooks, crannies and decorative features that really come to life with the right lighting.
Let’s go outside
The exterior of a venue is often overlooked. But lighting it in the right way really adds to a magical atmosphere and gives your guests a fantastic welcome. Just don’t overdo the lighting – you don’t want a Boeing 747 pulling up in the car park.
String ‘em up
Get creative with your lighting. You can have strings of lights draped around trees and archways and anywhere else you like. It’s your big day so do it your way.
Choose colours that complement your venue, bridal party dresses and flowers. In can be hard to find the right balance of colours without clashing or overdoing it. When in doubt, go with warm, neutral tones – they’ll work with almost any décor and make for beautiful photographs.
Speak to a pro
You should hire a lighting-pro for the same reason as you hire other professionals to work on your wedding – because it’s important. The best ones will study your venue and recommend the best systems and designs to use. They’ll also listen very carefully to what you want, then use all their experience and skill to get it just right.
