Lighting plays an essential role in setting the mood of a wedding – regardless of whether it is indoors or outdoors. When lighting is done right, it can take something ordinary and make it extraordinary. Wedding lighting, when done properly, has the ability to enhance the décor elements and ambiance, as well as bring certain areas into focus – such as the dance floor or bridal party table. The right lighting at a wedding makes for stunning pictures and videos. It truly is one of the most important, yet overlooked elements at your wedding.
Light Emitting Diodes (LED’s) have been around for a while but have become more affordable due to better manufacturing. This is sometimes referred to as “wireless uplighting.” These lights are remote controlled, don’t get too hot to touch and require no bulky cables. They are extremely popular at weddings due to the seamless and vibrant colour changes. These types of lights are able to highlight important wedding decors or elements – such as the cake or centrepieces, toasts, and speeches.
WHAT YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN LIGHTING YOUR WEDDING VENUE:
• What areas of the room should be emphasized (dance floor, head table, etc)?
• Is there any décor you would like to highlight (centrepieces, floral arrangements)?
• What kind of natural light or artificial light does your venue have and can it be controlled?
• What type of power do you need to generate the lights?
SPECIFICALLY FOR MARQUEES/TENTS
Lighting is essential for marquee weddings. The great thing about tented weddings is that they provide you with a blank canvas to work with. You can light the interior of the marquee with fairy lights to compliment the natural light coming in through the windows of the tent. Lanterns and string lights can add a romantic touch to any interior. LED lighting can make the dance floor come alive with vibrant colours in the evening.
Schupepe provides a wide variety of interior lighting options to suit different tastes. Even if you are not considering a wedding marquee, it is important to consider wedding lighting as it truly sets the entire tone of your ceremony.
