Event Lighting Design


As any event manager knows, lighting can make or break an event.

Simply ensuring that the event space will be illuminated is never enough for a truly spectacular showcase. After all, the point of lighting design is not just to enable the guests to see properly, it also needs to make them feel something.

At Perception, our years of experience have taught us that the art of designing event lighting requires a delicate balance of skill, technology and planning.


Lighting determines the success of an event

With the right kind of lighting, you can transform an entire space and evoke a desired atmosphere.

As a specialist event lighting company, our in-house lighting designers and technical lighting engineers will consult you on the appropriate lighting solution for your event or venue. We can design a lighting system to suit it perfectly, using your company colours as part of the theme.

With lighting being such an important aspect of branding, we pay special attention to establishing what kind of lighting your event or space requires.
Our event lighting equipment

We’ve done lighting for events of all sizes and types for many years: intimate parties, major brand launches, annual general meetings (AGMs) and concerts.

Throughout this time we’ve excelled at matching events with lighting systems. Whether you need moving head lights for your wedding dance floor or bespoke lanterns to match your store’s new range, Perception are masters in making your visions vividly real.

Digital lighting desks, also known as a light board, for controlling multiple lights at once. These are used to control strobe lights at a concert, spot lights at an awards ceremony or for simply maintaining the desired ambience.

At Perception, we can supply digital lighting desks complete with an expert engineer who can monitor the lighting arrangements over the course of the event either from a control booth or front of house.

LED lights and uplighters tend to either wall mounted or suspended from the ceiling. They can be employed as an aesthetically pleasing, unintrusive source of gentle lighting, ideal for weddings or galas for a softer look.

What is a party without appropriately festive party lights? We have a wealth of options for party-specific lighting, whether you’re going for miles of fairy lights, different sized lanterns or want to bring back the disco ball.
