Light Up Your Vows

The moments when you and your partner make forever promises to one another should be some of the most special throughout your wedding celebrations. Why not set your vows apart with strategically placed lights or candles that surround you and your new husband or wife in an ethereal glow? Your wedding planner can help you choose which backdrop will best suit your vision and your photographer can ensure the added lighting will complement your photos.

Centrepieces, Table Runners & Draping

Incorporate lights of different shapes and sizes as part of your centrepieces, table runners and even on the ceiling! Highlight the details of your flowers and greenery. Make your wedding venue feel like an intimate dining experience for each and every guest by amplifying the elegance of your table settings with delicate string lights and candles or bolder bulbs for a more modern twist. Or, consider adding some magic to the dance floor with overhead string lighting.
