4 Stunning Ways To Light-Up Your Wedding Venue

4 stunning ways to light up your weddingWho doesn’t love fairylights or a flickering candle?  Lighting is the perfect way to dress your wedding venue, whatever the time of year or style of wedding.

The pictures below show 4 simple, yet effective ways to use lighting to make your wedding super stunning.  All were taken at the same, beautiful wedding, held at Chaucer Barn, Holt, Norfolk.

1. Fairylights / Pealights

Fairylights (or pealights as we like to call them) can be used for a myriad of uses and work beautifully to provide some sparkle to your occasion.  Use these lightly draped around trees, to dress shrubs, or to wrap around handrails.fairylights in the archway at chaucer barnFairylights and coach lanterns at Chaucer BarnFairylights in shrubs for a barn weddingliving flame patio heater and fairy lights

2. Lanterns

Lanterns come in many shapes and forms, and are so incredibly versatile.  Closed lanterns provide safety where exposed candles may be considered dangerous, and are also wind and rain resistant.  Use lanterns and votives to line pathways, flank steps, dress sills and table-tops. coach lanterns at chaucer barnStorm lanterns at chaucer barnVintage-style garden furniture and votives for a luxury barn weddinglanterns and fairylights to dress a luxury barn wedding

3. Electrical Lighting

Uplighters, pinspots, festoons, fairylights, moving heads, colourwashes …. the options are endless!  Lighting is an excellent way of providing warmth to walls and ceilings, highlighting floral centrepieces or architectural features, creating interest by using moving effects, or to set the theme for an event by using it within a statement piece.  And, for the ultimate dance experience, a mirrorball is a MUST!fairylights and uplighters for a luxury barn weddingVintage-style garden furniture and votives for a luxury barn weddingWall drapes, fairylights and uplighters for a luxury barn weddingfestoon lights at chaucer barn

4. Flaming Torches

Gas flambeaux (torchieres) and paraffin torches provide a sense of theatre for the most striking of events.  Flambeaux create a dramatic entrance and set the scene for the festivities to come.  Paraffin torches work beautifully alongside flambeaux to line pathways, flank borders and direct your guests in the direction you want them to travel.gas flambeaux at chaucer barnparaffin torches at chaucer barn
