Event lighting is an amazing way to transform any venue from average to astonishing.

More and more event planners are starting to offer lighting packages as a value-added service to clients. Professional lighting is essential to any event. Lighting is a relatively inexpensive way to create the stunning ambiance you need in the room. When planning a wedding, concert, or corporate meeting, lighting can instantly elevate any affair.

Up lighting adds splashes of colourful light to the walls of a venue.  This is a great way to set the mood or transform a room.  Each up light covers the wall with colour from floor to ceiling.  Choose just about any shade of any colour!

For subtle accent lighting, I recommend using 15-20 up lights and for an amazing effect you could alternate the colours or even create a rainbow effect.  Our advise, you should include one up light in each corner, and two up lights behind a podium or head table.  Otherwise, for a more dramatic look, place up lights around the entire venue, spacing them 5 – 10 feet apart.

Monogram lighting is a great way to personalize an event.  You can put names, logos, or any other message in lights.  Monogram lighting packages typically include a custom design, gobo disc, and projector.  A  gobo is very effective providing something visually different for the audience to absorb. They can also be used to create patterns, imagery and shapes to support the event theme.



Show off your cake using spotlights!  These are small, battery-operated white lights that highlight a wedding cake, centrepieces, or any other important details.

For both practical and aesthetic reasons, renting the right equipment can make a world of difference.  Of course, more and more now you can incorporate the costs of the lighting package by asking your event planner to speak to your DJ or Band to include the lighting as part of their package.
