Good Lighting helps set the mood of your Winter Wedding.

Winter in Queenstown is a beautifully romantic time of year, especially July and August and sometimes September, which makes Queenstown a downright magical destination for a winter wedding. Here we look at how good lighting sets the mood of your winter wedding.

Throwing a winter wedding is fast catching up with summer as the most popular time for a Queenstown wedding.  The nights might be darker, but the sparkles are brighter, atmosphere merrier and the whole day is bursting with romance. 

Good lighting sets the mood of your winter wedding and is right up there with flowers, food and atmosphere when it comes to all things that can help set a romantic mood. Your ceremony will be the most gorgeous one you can imagine if you light it up well.

One of the most popular wedding lighting options is twinkle string lights (sometimes called fairy lights or plain string lights). Couples love this look for its whimsical, fairy tale vibes.

Using string lights at your wedding will ensure that your setting truly sparkles and gives off a romantic vibe. They could be cascading overhead or wrapped around bare trees in glowing coils of twinkle lights to set the stage for your frozen wonderland. You can even fill lanterns with nests of tiny bulbs for an unexpected way to feature string lights at your wedding.

Another romantic option for lighting at a winter wedding is candle light in both your ceremony and reception space. Candles up the aisle look gorgeous but make sure the aisle is wide enough for the couple to walk down without brushing against the candles. Candles on the signing table also looks absolutely beautiful, just be careful it the bride is wearing a veil.
