When many brides- and grooms-to-be hear the term “low lighting,” they typically shy away. Those words can spell out “disaster” when it comes to wedding photos – not to mention the connotation of darkness surrounding such a happy occasion. However, hosting a fabulous, dimly lit event is not as impossible as one may believe. Lighting is incredibly important during your big day, whether indoors or outdoors, and it’s imperative that you work closely with your lighting design team to create a concept that works with your motif, as well as the time of day and the season.
It isn’t out of the question to create an indoor space bathed in scattered light that will photograph well and add a particularly unique sense of romance to your nuptials. In fact, this style is gaining popularity for those weddings taking place in the fall and winter. If you believe this style might complement your vows, scroll through the photos below of varying ceremony and reception spaces in low lighting for ideas.
