Wedding Lighting – Technical Advice With Surrey


Wedding Lighting – Technical Advice With Surrey’s Leading Lighting Hire Company

Wedding lighting can go drastically up or down from your original budget, sometimes with no warning. You may have looked at your wedding lighting costs and can’t afford them any more. There is a lot of guesswork involved in figuring out what needs to be replaced and what can wait. Here to help you out, I am going to give you an idea of what you will be paying for the wedding lighting as well as how much different vendors will be charging you.

Wedding indoor lighting comes in a huge variety of styles and types. What was once a simple ceiling mount fixture has evolved into LED strips, down lights, chandeliers, pendants and everything else under the sun. You can even find new ways to add a touch of lighting to your wedding. As you are shopping for your wedding lighting, don’t forget to ask about lighting options.

The most common type of wedding lighting is to have your main bridal couple portrait in the middle of the ceiling. The chandeliers or other lighting pieces are strategically placed around the portrait to create a beautiful effect in the room. You can also place these same fixtures on either side of the photo so that they have a dual purpose. Another type of lighting used for wedding lighting is to have small “drape” style lights hanging above the reception tables. These tiny drape fixtures are made like a tent and are usually in the form of cascading candle holders.

This style of lighting is very beautiful and adds a little bit of glam to the table. It also makes it easy for anyone passing in front of the table to see the bridal couple. Sometimes you want a little more original in your wedding decor, so you may want to consider having small sconces hanging from the ceiling. Just be careful not to put too many of them in one area, as the light from the sconces can make the room seem very dim.

Smaller lighting items you can try are mini pendant lights, wall sconces, ceiling fans, or perhaps some ceiling globes. Ceiling globes can be great because they give you the option to change the color just by turning the globe upside down! Many couples are now choosing market lights for their wedding lighting because they tend to be much less expensive. They come in a wide variety of colors, and they can really make a difference in how the room looks.

With market lighting you have more control over the overall look of the room. It can be fun to have your photo credit on the wall behind you during your wedding preparation. Make sure you ask the photographer to place your photo credit at eye level when they are taking the photo. The color scheme for market lighting is a lot more traditional, but it’s still important that you get your colors correct.

When selecting an uplifting source, you will have the option of choosing between soft and hard lights. Soft lights are generally better for photographs that are not moving. Hard lights are generally used for photos that are moving, such as portraits. There is currently a trend back to photographing people with the flash on, which is technically correct, but I feel gives the photos a more dramatic look. If you are having your wedding indoors, using a flash is definitely okay, but I suggest not using it outdoors unless the moon is shining.

Wedding uplighting is becoming quite popular due to the new technology of LED lighting fixtures. These new lighting fixtures are actually tiny little lasers that produce very concentrated light that is very flattering. Some brides are afraid of having their skin color changed because of the laser effect, but you should feel comfortable having your skin tone altered due to the accent lighting fixtures. It is worth the extra money to have these LED lights professionally installed, as the results can be very beautiful.
