The magic touch!
Uplighting (AKA mood lighting) is a popular lighting effect used to elevate the feeling of a room. Pillars of light are created by placing small lights on the floor, and aiming them up.
Have you ever looked at a picturesque wedding or special event and found yourself blown away by both the details of the space and the intimate ambience of the occasion? You might have uplighting to thank for that! It's one of the easiest and most affordable ways to dress up a regular room into something extravagant.
Emphasise the décor elements around the walls, curtains and columns.
Set the uplights to a colour that ties in with the event.
Transform the vibe
Guests always notice the uplighting and continually comment on how much it brings out the beauty of an event. It makes bland photos pop, and gives ordinary candid’s during dancing the real wow-factor that your event deserves!
Uplighting is ideal for venues where the existing lighting isn't the most flattering. Not only does it set the mood as the party transitions from dinner to drinks and dancing, but it's also going to keep an area glowing for guests to mingle when all the other lights go out.
It's going to be lit!
Safe and simple
Discreet and versatile wireless uplights can be positioned wherever you want, with no clunky cables to trip over. They will come fully-charged, and run up to 7 hours on battery power, so the venue management can't complain about their electricity bill!
The LEDs don’t heat up the way traditional bulbs do; they remain cool to the touch all night, meaning there is no concern of children burning themselves, or any drapery catching on fire.
The uplights can be controlled from anywhere in the room, using one little RF remote control or via the DJ booth. They all sync up instantly.
Colour your way
Uplights can be set to almost any colour. How do you pick a colour? It depends on your personal taste and the look you want to achieve. Here are a few tips to help you choose the best colour of light for your event:
If you have a colour scheme then use one of those colours to unify the look. Alternatively you can match the uplighting to the colours you are using for table covers, bridesmaid dresses, centrepieces, logo colours or team colours.
Another approach is to set the uplighting to the opposite colour of what you are using for the event. With this approach, uplighting is used as an accent, to complement another colour. For example, if your event colour is navy blue, a good accent colour for uplighting is gold or amber. Shades of warm white and ivory are the most versatile neutral accent colours to pair with any event colour palette.
Light or Dark Shades
No matter which approach to colour that you use, you should also think about whether to use a light or dark shade of your colour. Light pastel shades create a soft look. Darker shades create a more dramatic look. For example, light purple uplighting looks elegant and subtle. It enhances the overall look of the room without drawing much attention to the lighting itself. Dark purple uplighting looks very bold and makes the lighting more of a focal point.
Think about the overall look and ambiance that you want to achieve for your wedding or event, and then choose a light or dark shade accordingly.
But don't sweat it!
You can play with the uplights, change colours throughout the evening, and move them around if you really want to.
There are also colour changing modes, and music modes for the more adventurous.
Now you know all the secrets, so let's create the look you’ve been dreaming of!
