Function Venue with Fairy lights

Function Venues and Lighting

Function Venues transform with different types of lighting. It is a good idea to keep in mind what “look” and atmostphere you want to create when deciding on your venue.

Function Venues with a Tent Structure

Many function venues have a permanent tent structure that is used for receptions. If you want to use overhead lighting, first check how high the ceiling is. This type of structive could do well for perimeter lighting around the tent and with strands going towards the centre poles. Fairy lights and/or globe light strings on a dimmer also work well.

Function Venues suitable for Naked Bulbs

When considering having naked bulbs, there needs to be attachments points for the lines. Beams and rafters are ideal to attach the naked bulbs lines to. Naked bulbs also need height to drop from so a relatively high ceiling works wells for naked bulbs. They can run in straight lines overhead tables or in a random design, great for above dance floors.

Festive Globe light strings

They are a great source of light for outdoor seating/eating areas and dancefloors. These lights are very durable and are used permanently outdoors at some function venues.
