Light The Night

A few weeks ago now we met with a Bride who is currently planning a reception in quirky and intimate space. As we were chatting about her style and current plans she continued to put emphasis on the type of lighting she would like. “Soft and warm” were words used to describe the mood she was after. This got me thinking…. Lighting would have to be one of the most important elements in throwing a good wedding reception, dinner party or any party at all. Lighting has the ability to either make or break the party; We’ve all been to the shocking 21st or engagement party at the local sporting club where the fluoro lights remain on all night! They ruin the mood, have you worried about your blemishes, and certainly do not create an atmosphere where the dance floor “goes off”. Remove the harsh lighting and add soft, dimly lit lights and all of a sudden you see a transformation in the party. There is a sense of relaxation among the guests and you can feel the romance in the air.

We’ve put a collection together of some pretty and romantic lighting for you to see for yourself. I look at these pictures and wish I was there mingling with my friends and enjoying a celebratory champagne! It's nights like these you literally feel like being romantic.

Candle Bag Lanterns

Paper bag lanterns are oh-so pretty for lighting paths and setting off into the night's sky. You could even get your guests involved by having them all write a well-wish for the bride and groom, or if you prefer, a wish for themselves, before floating them off. What a pretty and romantic way to have your marriage wishes sent out into the universe!!

A lot of the time lighting can be done by the venue, a stylist or even a friend. But if you feel you want something really different and unusual then we would suggest bringing in the specialists. We like Lush Lighting from Adelaide. We have seen some of their work and these guys do a fantastic job!
