Who doesn’t love fairy lights or a flickering candle? Lighting is the perfect way to dress your wedding venue, whatever the time of year or style of wedding.
In this blog post, Stressfree | The Venue Transformers 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
Fairy lights (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.
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.
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!
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.
