Decorative Uplighting – What are uplighters?
Decorative Uplighting for Weddings
Decorative uplighting transforms the area around the dancefloor and paints the walls with light. For your first dance, the lights can be set to your colour scheme to help your photographer create a fairytale first dance photo. For the rest of the evening, the lights respond to the music and create a lively and exciting environment for dancing!
When you think about how many uplighters you need, you should consider what you would like to light up with the uplighters. For example, you might want to
- uplight the pillars in the room (Down Hall)
- light up the beams in a barn (Reid Rooms and Channels Golf Club)
- add light to a dark room (Prested Hall and the Lawn)
- light up the draping in a marquee (Parklands and Mulberry House).
Decorative uplighting is a way to enhance the look of a dancefloor by lighting up the walls and ceilings around the dancing space. As your evening guests arrive and during your first dance, our uplighters will be set to a colour of your choice.
Our decorative uplighters can produce a large range of different colours and we can fit in with your chosen colour scheme. The lights are computer controlled and our wedding DJ can customise them on the night to fit in with your colour scheme. When the lively dance music starts, the lights will flash in time to the beat of the music, creating a really awesome effect that will really get your guests into the dancing mood.
The uplighters are placed on the floor, against the walls and the light is aimed upwards so that the wall and the ceiling are lit. Our DJ uses professional uplighters and our lights use powerful LEDs that remain cool to touch so that any inquisitive children will not burn their hands.
For venues with limited power supply (Down Hall and the Lawn), we use cutting edge battery powered, cable-free, wireless uplighters.
A Video of Decorative Uplighters
This is a video that showcases how the decorative uplighters can respond to the music. The lightshow in the video is a collaboration between PianoDJ and Mediterranean Occasions Venue Stylists and is a pre-programmed lighting show. We were asked to demonstrate the different effects that uplighters can have for a venue tasting evening at Gaynes Park.
During the course of a normal wedding disco, our DJ or lighting jockey (depending on which package you have booked) will mix the lights to the music and this creates an incredible, dynamic effect which looks awesome and really makes a room come to life!!
