If I COULD GIVE EVENT LIGHTING A MOTTO, IT WOULD BE THIS: SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE

The simplest and most common method to transform an event space is uplighting, which is designed to add definition or direction within the venue and when designed correctly, this can completely transform the atmosphere of any space. Additionally, from romantic and intermit, to bright and colourful, there are a wide range of options available for your wedding, conference or seasonal party.

Whilst uplighters are a great foundation for almost all events, especially if you are unsure of where to start, gobos can be a great way to use light to create extra texture within a beautiful event space like Gibson Hall. Though you can certainly use colour sometimes, using just white light can be most effective in architecturally abundant spaces such as this historical venue in London.

For parties and awards events in the evening you might want to elevate the lighting design to the next step and add moving lights. They are such great way to add a true wow factor to any event as they are able to move and change (to music!) or to draw attention to key highlights of the night.

With a simple change in lighting you can use the same space twice but make them feel like entirely different spaces. For example, begin a wedding or conference by having uplighters for the ceremony and then move guests into the Garden Room or courtyard an impressive summer party venue for a drinks reception. During the reception we can transform the Main Hall into a stunning banqueting space, all with use of gobos and moving lights. For events such as seasonal parties, we set nicely themed lighting for your guests’ entrance and once dinner and speeches are over, we change in to party mode with colourful, fun moving lights to get your guests onto the dancefloor.
