If you’re looking to create a moody enchantment at your ceremony or reception, lighting is one of the simplest and most magical ways to transform a space. On dusk, as night falls, beautifully strung lighting will create a romantic ambience and spirited atmosphere.
Referencing our love of exposed bulbs and single hanging pendant lights in chic interiors, we love the idea of carrying this inspiration to the décor styling at your reception, with single hanging bare bulbs and rows of festoon lights. These larger, more industrial style bulbs have a beautiful antique sentiment and create a warm, white glow. They are infinitely more polished and grown up than rows of fairy lights.
While this trend naturally lends to a rustic theme, we are drawn to the use of this lighting with more polished and refined styling, to avoid a carnival atmosphere. Think 1920’s decadence with a real focus on lighting with few, but opulent décor touches! Keep lighting low other than the warm glow of the festoon and string above long dining tables decadently adorned with gold terrariums, in romantic clusters in an industrial space or over the dance floor for an ethereal mood in your photographs. Be inspired by a night ceremony and cascade strings down an exposed brick wall as a romantic backdrop.
Festoon Lighting can be hired easily from a range of décor hire companies. We recommend The Wedding Designers in Newcastle NSW, Timbermill in Sydney NSW, Pepper Sprout Hire in Melbourne and Moreton Hire for QLD, NSW and Victoria.
