Chilli Blossom decor - DIY Ambient Lighting for Weddings

Lighting is a great way to set the mood for your wedding. Selecting the right lighting and sound for your wedding can help to make the occasion a wonderful experience to remember, transforming your chosen venue to reflect your vision and helping to create the perfect atmosphere for this magical occasion.

Boutique events management and production agency Beyond Certainty who are wedding lighting and sound specialists have given Secret Style File 6 tips on how to create your own ambient lighting for weddings:

Cup Light Garland

Use cupcake cases or mini paper cups to create tiny shades for stringed fairy lights. This is a cute way to light up any outdoor spaces at your wedding reception.

Tissue Paper Jar Lanterns

Put tissue paper that matches your theme in a jar and put the candle or LED light inside.

Fish Bowl Lighting

Fill large fish bowls with 1/3 crushed acrylic clear glass, add water to half way then drop some ice blue and red submersible LED cubes into them.  This will create a fantastic glow and provide mood lighting in the room

Twinkle Lights

When done right twinkle lights can look gorgeous, whether behind a white muslin curtain or carefully draped from the ceiling, they are an inexpensive way to make any venue look enchanting and magical.


Without doubt the simplest way to make any wedding magical, IKEA can supply very cheap candles and votives which when used in mass has an incredible effect.
