Is Lighting Really Important At Your Event?

So, you are planning an event and have started to think about lighting options for your venue. With many different options available, you may find yourself thinking “is lighting my event really that important?”

Without a doubt, lighting is one of the most important features to consider. More and more people are looking into creatively lighting their event venues, especially as the advances in technology are allowing lighting specialists like ourselves to produce more attractive, creative lighting options.

So why is lighting so important? Let’s take a look, shall we?

It Sets the Mood of the Room

The lighting of your event will determine how your guests will feel when they enter the venue, as well as affecting the decorations and the overall colour of the room.

Lighting can make even the most boring of rooms look spectacular; bringing in colour and interesting visual cues for your guests to look at.

As we have already mentioned in a previous blog, the colour of lighting can determine the mood that you feel, so make sure that you are projecting an appropriate atmosphere into your room with your lighting options.

It Benefits the Photographs and Videos of your Event

Not only will you have a great experience at your event thanks to the lighting options that you have used, you will also have some amazing photographs and videos from the event to act as a reminder.

Great lighting makes for great photos, so make sure that you inform your photographers and videographers of your lighting arrangements so that they can tailor their services to your specific set up.

There are different lighting options available depending on what you want to achieve with your lighting, as well as looking at the natural light that the venue already has. If you are looking to create the perfect ambience, your lighting technician will be able to tailor your lighting solution to your venue and it’s natural light to help you create the perfect atmosphere.

It Can Set the Focus

If you have a certain area of your event that you want your guests to pay particular attention to, lighting is the perfect way to draw their gaze.

Without being too intrusive, lighting can frame an area or object and make it stand out. This could also extend to the projection or images or logos onto a surface. Having an illuminated version rather than a simple banner will grab your guest’s attention.

Overall, the entire composition of how your lighting is set up will affect how your guests react at your event.
