That Event Company - Breakup lighting for events

That Event Company, Oxford - texturing lighting effects to add an extra dimension to your event


So what is breakup lighting?

Breakup lighting is simple. We take a stencil of metal, acetate or glass and place it into one of our high-powered focused light sources - this in turn projects whatever is on the stencil (gobo) onto a space within your venue or marquee. It's a pretty simple concept but when used in combination with other lighting effects it can really transform a space and give it texture.

Breakup lighting is often overlooked - we aren't sure why but it's one of our favourite effects for weddings and other personal events, and it's only limited to your imagination!

Imagine a room uplit to your event's colours but within that are shards of shaped light cutting through and creating tones (which compliment your scheme) that give the room a personal feel. Breakup gobos come in many different shapes and forms and are completely abstract - they don't really have to mean anything, they are just a combination effect that works well in venues when used correctly.

Like anything the breakups can be white or a combination of colours and work well on ceilings, walls and even facing down and applying texture onto your wedding breakfast tables. It can be a very subtle effect and like everything we do here, it's all about the addition of lots of subtle effects to get one amazing result.
