Nothing sets the mood for your wedding quite like lighting. From twinkling string lights and sparkling chandeliers to luminous pin spotting, the right lighting is more than just functional it also carries out your wedding style and creates an unforgettable ambiance. Illumination is everything when it comes to elevating an ordinary space into something extraordinary.
When selecting your lighting, or working with a lighting designer if you decide to take that route, keep in mind that it not only contributes to the wedding’s atmosphere but also acts as décor. Take a cluster of sophisticated chandeliers, for example in addition to brightening the reception tables, they also serve as an elegant overhang. There’s no need to splurge on wedding flowers or other decorative accents to adorn your reception venue’s ceiling when you can kill two birds with one stone!
Lighting can also help to define the extra décor you do include. Think pin spotting, which uses narrow beams of light to highlight and accentuate certain details like those centerpieces your florist worked so carefully to design.
Good wedding lighting can also help your photographer capture the most stunning details and moments of the big day from snaps that showcase the mood of your wedding to stills of the gorgeous intimate details to romantic portraits of you and your groom lovingly silhouetted against flickering lights.
