Lighting at Wedding Receptions

Lighting instantly transforms the atmosphere of an event by enhancing the décor and evoking emotions through use of colour. Here are examples of some of our past weddings where lighting has been used. You will notice that the colour of lighting greatly impacts the essence of each wedding:

AMBER / GOLD LIGHTING: elegant, formal, traditional

BLUE LIGHTING: calm, cool, fresh

PINK LIGHTING: warm, fun, exotic

PURPLE LIGHTING: romantic, sophisticated, regal
