Light Up Your Life – And Your Wedding!

Are you considering some alternative lighting for your wedding day? Then let us shed some light on the options you can choose from. Illuminations play an important role on the day, so don’t take this decision lightly…

For Outdoor Weddings

If your wedding is set to take place under our wonderful gazebo, there are many lighting options for you when night falls.

Lanterns

Lanterns are a popular choice among our brides and grooms, providing that desired romantic candlelight in a safe casing of white or metallic shades to match your theme. By hanging them on along a pathway, lanterns can have a dual purpose of lighting up the way and thus sending people in the direction you want them to go in!

Tea-lights

As the sun sets on your special day, that does not have to dim your fun. Dotting tea-lights on tables in the outside reception area means that you can keep the party alight after dark, with most candles having a burn time of around 8 hours.

LED Fairy Lights

Fairy lights offer that magical feel and can be used in pretty much any location – hanging over doorways, trailing along fences or signs, wrapped around trees, or placed in a jar as a charming centrepiece. If you want the wow factor, you could even create a ceiling or backdrop of twinkling lights.

For Indoor Weddings

Indoor weddings can make use of all of the above but, in addition, there is the opportunity to really play with some modern lighting trends.

Chandeliers

Chandeliers add a sense of luxury to a venue and offer the perfect light for intimate speeches. At Parklands, our stunning Pavilion comes fitted with suspended chandeliers, dripping in sparkling gemstones.

LED Letters

Oversized LED letters can be hired for your very own event as a backdrop to your ceremony area, top table or dance floor. Popular choices are ‘I DO’ or ‘MR & MRS’. What would you choose? We also have LOVE Letters that can be hired directly from Parklands.

Uplighting

There is a skill to uplighting and creating a dramatic effect, so gather images and pin pictures of weddings you like to be clear on the ‘feel’ you are going for. Do you want a winter wonderland with cool blue lights and frosty trees or do you want to create a wonderful watercolour world bursting with colour?

Projections

Projections are a great way to make a space your own. Choose from patterns, colours or images to be projected from wall to wall. Opt for a pretty backdrop of moon and stars to make your enchanted fairy-tale vision come to life and dance under the night sky!

Light-up dance floor

Last, but not least, why not surprise your guests with a statement light up floor. Whether it’s Saturday Night Fever you are looking to replicate with multicolour sequences or something more elegant, this is easily achieved by renting an LED floor directly from Parklands.
