Colours speak louder than words.  The correct colour lighting can ultimately change the whole event experience, manipulating mood and dictating guest emotions.  Lighting is not often at the top of the list when it come to wedding or event planning.  But it really does make a huge difference to the feel of a function.

Event Colour Lighting and Mood

Give your event the professional edge.  Every event is unique and it is paramount that individual event themes are taken into account by specialist lighting designers and lighting programmers to complement that theme, hitting the nail on the head with the right mood lighting.

Colour lighting enhances, changes and establishes mood and is used strategically at events to trigger an emotional state through triggering memory subconsciously.  Branding often focuses on colour for this reason, but at a corporate event this needs to be taken into consideration when taking into account how your guests will feel using the branded colour lighting in an event space.

From hot, intense red; vibrant cheery yellow; relaxing blue to fresh and tranquil green every colour stimulates a temperature in the room and the power of it should definitely not be overlooked.

 

Use the Correct Colour Lighting in the Appropriate Places

Colour lighting, when done poorly can look downright awful! Successfully projecting colour lighting will accentuate features, without overpowering them and detracting from the overall theme.  To create the right mood, takes careful thought.   A classic example is the colour lighting used from day to night.  Warm hues work best at a wedding during the day, for example.  Yet you will want to dramatically change the atmosphere and mix up the vibrant colours for the informal evening party!
