The correct selection and positioning of lights can turn a venue into something truly magical.
The large majority of parties and wedding receptions take place at night. Often the same venue is used for the Wedding Breakfast and the Reception Party that follows it. While daylight or the venue 'house' lights are fine for the wedding breakfast, you want something better for the evening event. This is where our professional lighting service comes in.
We love lights! We have one of the most dynamic and exciting light shows in the area.
Disco lights have moved on from the traditional mirror ball and spotlight. You can now have moving heads that project images across a darkend room, lasers that fire a patterned beam into the darkness and static units that manage to throw coloured light patterns in almost every direction.
The selection and positioning of lights is very important. Sometimes, if the venue is quite small then a few powerful lights mounted above the DJ will be enough to produce an impressive light show. Other times, especially in large venues, there may be more than one lighting 'rig' in use to ensure that the whole room is covered.
We speak to our clients to understand what they want from their light show. We can provide everything from a few subtle uplights through to a full, dynamic and colourful show.
Led Mood Lighting/Uplighting
Bathe Your Venue In Subtle Colours
Normally placed around the outside of rooms, led uplights are low power lights that can be set to almost any colour. They are used to best effect when they compliment the style and colour of a wedding or party. They can be set to one static colour or can slowly change from one to the next. These lights are often connected to the sound system and become part of the main lightshow.
We use low voltage lighting to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible. It also helps to keep the heat down too.
Bring The Lights To Life
The use of non-toxic smoke takes the lights to the next level. It makes the light beams stand out and really helps to fill the room with colour. Nowadays venues are quite sensitive about smoke machines and in some cases they ban their use altogether - this is because they have installed smoke detectors in their rooms now that people are no longer allowed to smoke inside.
We tend to use a variation of the normal smoke machine called a 'Fogger'. Instead of firing a plume of smoke into a room like a smoke machines does, a fogger releases a constant small plume which is less intrusive. We find that many venues are more comfortable with foggers as they are less likely to activate their fire alarms. Other venues will turn off the smoke detectors for the duration of the event.
Part of our Event Planning Service is to speak to your venue to understand what specific requirements they have for us. This can be anything from announcing where the fire escapes are to making sure that we follow their Health and Safety Policy.
