Luminex, a fiber-optic fabric imported from Italy, was used to light up the wedding dress. This gave the dress a soft glowing undercoat without blinding onlookers and guests.
The final illuminated dress has a soft glowing under skirt with a splash of light on the bodice and finishes at the shoulders with feather-like tendrils.
Alison says: "The lighting design was intended to be simple with warm and cool whites. There were no flashing bulbs or severe bright spots. The spectacle of a lighted dress is enough on its own, there was no need to over do it with intense changing colors or a blinding reflection."
Alison also created a Luminex shawl for the glowing bride to wear to the beach bonfire after the reception. We're thoroughly impressed!
