If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times: the key to any successful event lies in the details. It’s when all the little elements combine that you can create something truly memorable, and it’s attention to detail that shows your guests you’ve got their best interests at heart. Every event should ignite a response from its guests as soon as they walk through the door, and that means making sure that everything is perfect – from the location to the food to the decor, and even the lighting. Because with the right lights and the right guests you can conjure the kind of ambience that will stay with people forever, and it’s then that you know you’ve really hit the party jackpot.
Naturally, our lighting specialists are each specially trained in their own fields, and each an expert in how to build an atmosphere that really resonates. It goes without saying that the lighting you choose should be governed by the kind of party you’re throwing – a wedding will have very different requirements to a team building event, for example – but with trained experts on your side, you can select the lighting that fits your party best, and in the process create something completely unique.
A helpful exercise in choosing what to go for is to strip your event back to its bare bones – what’s the purpose of it and how do you want people to feel? At a wedding, you want to evoke a sense of romanticism so fairylights strung between trees and candles atop tables are an obvious choice. If you’re hosting a conference of sorts, it’s likely you’ll need spotlights – something to frame the speaker when they take centre stage. And if you just happen to be throwing a party in a stunning location, it’s a great idea to highlight the grounds in a range of beautiful colours that add depth, drama and warmth to the setting.
And of course, lighting is to music what crackers are to cheese – they’re the dream team of events. If you’ve got a live DJ then without question, you’ll need a lights and lasers set up. What’s the point of a drop if not marked by strobes? The good news is that not only can we advise on what’s best, we will also come to the venue, set it up and then when you’re done, take it all away again. It couldn’t be simpler so it’s well worth setting aside some time to get it right.
