Beautiful lighting for your big day
If you want to have a perfectly romantic wedding day then the best way to set the mood is with beautiful lighting. Twinkling fairy lights, shining lanterns and glowing candles can all add to the ambience and really help set the tone of your big day.
You may find that your wedding venue has some fantastic lighting options available for you. Wineport Lodge in Westmeath (pictured) has the most amazing pagoda which can be lit up beautifully with lanterns in the evening. It’s an ideal romantic setting and the perfect place to have some beautiful wedding photography. So when planning your wedding, ask your venue if they offer any lighting options and perhaps get some ideas by seeing how other couples have lit the venue on their big day.
If you are taking care of adding a bit of ambiance to your venue yourself then there are some fantastic options available to you that will help show your big day in the most perfect romantic light. Tea lights dotted around on your reception tables will create a romantic warm atmosphere. Instead of a floral centre piece why not go for a beautiful cluster of shimmering tea lights such as these heart shaped silver tea lights from Breeze.
If you want to really add some sparkle to your big day then take a look at the beautiful Candle Tree from Interiors by Vale. Complete with fairy lights and beautiful hanging lanterns, they will set the perfect atmosphere for your big day.
Or would you prefer something a little more subtle; a beautiful garland of pale pink roses will look stunning draped around your wedding venue. Then as evening draws in, you can switch on the glowing led lights embedded into each flower, giving your venue a warm glow that feels utterly romantic. Available from Victoria Jill, you can choose between lilac, red, green and pale pink.
