This is one of our favourite and most popular lighting designs for Caswell House, a widthways fairy light canopy, shown in this case combined with controllable LED uplighters.
We light lots of lovely weddings at Caswell House and it's amazing how many different options and combinations there are for lighting these stunning barns. Which design works best for a specific wedding will depend on lots of different factors, with some of the main considerations being:
- Wow factor.
- Adding light to the space.
- Flexibility to transform the look from day to night.
...and this design has it all! The fairy lights hang from side to side across the width of the room to create a canopy that extends the full length of Wenman's Barn for a real wow-factor display that adds plenty of soft, warm white light to the barn.
The LED uplighters shoot carefully aimed plumes of light up the walls where they highlight the texture of the stonework and reflect back into the room from the walls and the white ceiling above adding even more soft, flattering light that is well distributed throughout the barn.
Normally the uplighters would be set to warm white during the day to complement the colour of the fairy lights, and then switched to a colour later in the day. The change in atmosphere is quite dramatic, genuinely transforming the mood for the evening. There are no hard and fast rules for the best way to use the colour options since each wedding is unique, which is why we supply an easy to use yet powerful controller that allows full control over the colour and brightness of the lights at any time during the day or night. The same controller can also set the brightness of the fairy lights so creating the perfect mood is simply a matter of tapping a few buttons on a touch screen.
