Aisle Style – 20 Beautiful Wedding Ceremony Lighting Ideas
If you are to be a winter bride, as I was, then ceremony lighting will (or should) be an especially important consideration when it comes to planning your wedding and decor. You see, lighting provides an awful lot more than just the obvious, being light! (much needed by your photographer to capture those key memories) As the sun sets and your ceremony starts, it also creates warmth for your guests and the most romantic of atmospheres – and if, as we did you go with scented candles, it can also infuse your ceremony with the most beautiful aromas. So today, for the fourth in this series of Aisle Style posts, I am showcasing my favourites of the 20 most beautiful wedding ceremony lighting decor ideas. Whether your ceremony will be indoors or out, rustic or glam, church, garden, barn or woodland copse I have inspiration just for you……
Of course romantic lighting isn’t exclusively for Winter brides, nor is it restricted to indoor ceremonies. Whenever or wherever you are planning on getting married there will be just the perfect lighting for you. How much lighting is also up to you: you can light your aisle, creating a breathtaking runway for you to glide down……
Or light your ‘alter’, to create a focus on the most important part of your day……
Or light both! To create a truly breathtaking scene sure to elicit gasps from all of your guests……
And of course deciding how much lighting is just the beginning – your choices for the style of lighting are absolutely endless!
Nothing states glamour quite like a chandalier. So dramatic, opulent and darn right pretty (even when they’re not lit!) they add an element of elegance to any venue……
Of course chandaliers don’t have to be crystal to make a statement. Rustic chandaliers look fabulous in barn or industrial environments……
A fabulous (budget friendly) alternative to chandaliers, lanterns are just as effective – hang lots from a tree in mixing and matching styles for a really striking backdrop…..
Nothing is guaranteed to create a romantic atmosphere like the soft flickering light of candles…..
