Brighten up your venue the personal way

Date: Wed 27th August 2014

Lighting a venue can be the simplest but most effective way of transforming a venue with your own personal touch.  Event and lighting specialists, STL Production Group, can create a unique look for a bride and groom, setting the scene in their individual taste.

No matter what the style is of the venue, be it a rustic barn, a marquee, castle or function room, some clever use of lighting can complement or transform any space, depending on your requirements.

STL recently demonstrated its lighting expertise at Kent’s newest rural wedding venue, Elmley Barn, set in the midst of a nature reserve on the Isle of Sheppy.  The beautiful barn is the latest offering to Kent weddings and to show its full potential STL designed a lighting theme ideal from the ceremony through to the first dance.

To bring a little sparkle to the barn, festoon was draped from the rafters and pea lights around the vertical beams.  While colour changing uplighters gave the walls warmth and break-up lights were projected on to the floor for texture.  To highlight those personal touches that should not be missed, pin spots were focussed onto the tables – which were dressed by stylists, Idyllic Days and florist, Blooming Green Flowers, photography by Cotton Candy.

“Lighting is essential for all types of events, but weddings in particular can benefit hugely from some clever use of lighting, especially in venues where the existing set-up may be quite basic,” said Phil Parsons, STL’s Project Manager.

“Whether you have simple festoon strung from the rafters, LED uplighters that colour wash the walls, or intelligent moving heads for the dance floor, guests can be truly amazed by the impact of good thought-out lighting.

“AT STL our hire prices start from as little as £1.50 per metre for festoon and although it can be in high demand during the summer months, we have a vast supply and can cater for all size functions.  We are more than happy to demonstrate our products to our customers should they wish to pop in,” concludes Parsons.

Based on the outskirts of Maidstone, on Seven Mile Lane, STL houses an extensive range of lighting equipment for all types of events to compliment the entertainment, venue and the chosen colour code.
