Light and love – a combination that always goes hand in hand. Focus, position, colour, hanging and direction? So many elements that need to be considered. Lighting can really elevate a space, which is why we go to such lengths to perfect our placement.

Warehouse venue searching can often be a little tricky, especially for those couples that are searching for a space that is urban, yet still holds that romantic refined factor. It is often hard to bring out warmer elements in an industrial venue. Unless you have something like our pendant lighting adorning the space, of course.

When considering lighting design as a styling aspect, intimate ambience is what is most important. A warm glow is the best way to create this and that is why adding our beautiful in-house pendant lighting was undoubtedly the right choice!

Lighting adaptability is also another great thing to look out for. Being able to adjust the lighting to suit different timings in the evening is also incredibly important. Dancing? Lighting down, music up!

Outdoor spaces are best illuminated with fairy lighting, there is no arguing that. Our wall fixture make such a beautiful back drop for romantic portraits!
