Event and wedding lighting is not just about flipping on a switch. If you want to turn your tent or venue from ‘plain’ to simply stunning, you’ll probably need to take a more illuminating approach to your decor. Lighting creates mood and when it’s done well, lighting can make everything including your food, guests and decor look even better.
LED lights are the latest technology in energy-efficient lighting. ‘LED’ stands for ‘light emitting diode’, a semiconductor device that converts electricity into light. LED lights are super-energy efficient using approximately 85% less energy than halogen or incandescent lighting. LED’s are great for creating a ‘colour wash’ – a blanket of coloured light covering a targeted area.

LED parcans are a practical and effective way of bringing colour and ambience to a tent or venue, and are used by all good-quality event supply specialists for their reliability, safety and quality light output. ‘PAR’ is an acronym for ‘parabolic aluminized reflector’ – essentially the cans designate a sealed-beam lamp similar to the headlights on a car. ‘Uplighting’ a room (placing parcans at ground level and sending the light up vertically) gives a soft, pretty effect without blasting guest’s eyes, while down-lighting allows for a brighter, more focussed effect.
LED parcans will transform any space and are an economical solution for turning a blank canvas into a stunning environment. Talk to us about how we can help you with your lighting needs.
