  • Bright flashing lights. Pub signs. Hotel Vacancies. Las Vegas Casinos.

    All sorts of images can pop into your head when you think about neon lights. But what about neon for weddings?

    It can be hard to come up with original lighting and decoration concepts for weddings these days. With the rise of photo sharing apps and the likes of Pinterest, ideas are quickly shared around as everyone wants to do something creative for their special day that hasn’t been done before.

    So why not think about neon lighting?

    It’s a new concept based on an old technique. Neon gas was first discovered by scientists William Ramsay and Morris Travers back in 1898 when it was a rare naturally occurring substance. In the early 1900s George Claude made the first neon sign. He combined electric gasses and passed them through an electric current to make colourful discharges. He then discovered he could twist the glass tubing which held the neon gas – creating the first neon signs.

    The first modern neon lamp was put on display at the Paris Motor Show in 1910 – and the concept grew from there.

    Fast forward to the 21st century and neon lighting is being revived once again and making another comeback. It had major commercialisation in the 40s, the 70s and now it’s back – but with a classier twist than just the old pub signs of days gone by. 

    Neon lighting is eye catching, original, exciting and can add a personal touch to any wedding decor. Neon lights will give your guests something to remember you by.

    Here are some great neon lighting ideas. 

    NAMES ENTWINED IN A NEON DISPLAY

    A beautiful keepsake for years to come after your wedding. Get a customised neon light with your names lit up in a beautiful display. Or go a step further and have a neon light created of your faces!

    A "JUST MARRIED" OR "I LOVE YOU" SIGN 

    Rather than banners, buntings and strings of fairy lights, be original with a neon sign to place above the bride and groom at the head table. 

    NEON LIGHTS FOR A LAS VEGAS THEMED WEDDING 

    If you love neon and can't get enough, why not have a Las Vegas themed wedding and light up the reception hall with all things neon? A great way to create an event with plenty of dazzle for all to remember.

    RED HEART LIGHTS OR WEDDING BELLS

    A romantic red heard or wedding bells are beautiful classy lights that can be created in neon for weddings. They can be hung on a major wall or at an entrance to welcome guests. 

    DIRECTION SIGNS 

    Be original and create some neon lights with directions for guests about the various areas and amenities for your wedding. Signs pointing to the bar with a neon cocktail above it give an upbeat feel to any wedding. 

    DANCE FLOOR 

    What better way to get people in the mood for dancing than with a neon-lit dance floor area! It helps create a nightclub feel - perfect to get everyone off the chairs and to bust out their best wedding dance moves. 

    The great thing about neon signs is they last for years – in fact the neon tube can stay illuminated for 10 to 20 years! It can be seen as a special investment and you can keep your sign as a constant reminder of your special day and the love you share.

    Neon Creations can create any type of neon signs and neon lights to create a wedding to remember - and a special keepsake for years to come.

  • Brides and grooms want to remember the splendour of their wedding day and oftentimes, the only time they will wear their expensive gown. It is vital that wedding photographers in Melbourne captures every detail during the day, so the photographer puts a lot more preparation into the shoot. Here is a small behind the scenes look of a wedding photograph shoot.

    Research

    The photographer is going to put a lot of time and effort into researching the shoot. The location the photographs are taken to the time of day that will offer the best lighting must all be decided before talking to the bride and groom. He/she will also want to make sure they research the type of wedding you are planning and any traditions that go with it.

    Talk to the Couple

    When the photographer originally talks to the bride and groom, he/she is determining the type of style the couples prefer. The photographer wants to make sure the photographs showcase what the couple imagines when looking through wedding books. Some couples prefer black and white, while others are traditionalists. The only way to get into the mind of the couple is to set up appointments to talk with them.

    When wedding photographers in Melbourne talk to their clients, they will be taking notes about the locations the couple dreams of. However, it is vital to jot down who they want photographed because photographers do not want to take pictures that will not land sales.

    Create a Workable Schedule

    Everyone needs to be on the same page when it comes to time management. It is best if the photographer has a master schedule so he/she can figure out what time would be best to do portraits. These schedules are often made and then compared to other members of the wedding party in an arranged meeting prior to the wedding. It is important that the photographer know the timeline so no one is rushed in getting the perfect shot.

    Coordinate with Others for Assistance

    Once you have the schedule that needs to be met, the photographer will coordinate with others to make sure the schedule is adhered to. Many wedding photographers in Melbourne will use assistants to help keep track of the people who need to be photographed and keeping everything on track. It is hard enough to make sure all of the photographs are taken, and the poses look perfect. So, assistants are often used to carry the equipment, holding light reflectors, and keeping track of the shots taken.

    Mental Game

    Finally, wedding photographers in Melbourne are great at putting on a game face. Regardless of what has happened earlier in the day, they are ready to treat the bride and groom like royalty. It is imperative that they keep their cool because the stress levels that will be in the wedding party will be high. It is the wedding photographer's job to help keep an even keel. They plan for anything to go wrong so they have the ability to roll with the punches. This helps them create the perfect pictures for the memories you desire.

    Next time you are looking to hire a wedding photographer, think about everything that goes into that photo shoot. They work around the clock to make sure the experience is pleasurable and you have pictures to keep for a lifetime. Professional wedding photographers in Melbourne such as Noble Photography love to see you happy, and make sure each couple is treated uniquely.

  • Wedding photos are priceless and timeless – they represent the joy, passion, promise, love, and memories of your big day. Therefore, you cannot afford to choose the wrong wedding photographer.

    Do I Really need a Professional Wedding Photographer?

    Why should you hire a photographer when uncle Tim has this expensive camera that he just bought the other day? Not to forget that he loves taking pictures! The temptation to have a friend or relative handle your photography might look like an ingenious option, considering the potential savings that you could make. Don’t be fooled: unless uncle Tim is a professional wedding photographer, you should not even consider having him as your official photographer. It’s only a professional photographer that can create out of the box wedding photos for your special occasion.

    Top Tips To Consider When Choosing A Wedding Photographer

    1. Personalised Photography

    Wedding photography is not a one-size-fits-all service. Different couples have their own unique tastes and preferences that a photographer needs to capture. The photographer you choose should be able to offer a wide variety of photography styles that will capture the breadth and depth of your wedding. Looking through a photographer’s portfolio enables you to understand how he/she sees the world, and how he/she captures this perspective through images. Having said this, it is imperative that you choose a professional who is personable, and is committed to putting your interests first.

    2. Compare different photographers

    Choosing an ideal photographer should not be a trial and error affair. Checking the Yellow pages or running a Google search, and selecting the first service provider you set your eyes upon is ill advised. You must ensure that you conduct adequate research. If possible get referrals from trusted friends or relatives. Come up with a list of possible photographers to enable you compare their services and what they can offer you. During your research, meet face to face with the different photographers so that you can determine if they are a good match with what you are searching for. In addition, it will enable you to tell the photographers that you can get along with.

    3. Don’t  skimp on your photography budget

    In your wedding budget, you have allocated funds for every aspect - photography included. The challenge comes in if you allocate funds before settling on an ideal photographer. What happens if you find a wedding photographer in Brisbane, whose works you fancy but cannot afford his/her services from what you have in your budget? What if you are on a tight budget and cannot simply afford to hire a photographer? Remember, your wedding is a once in a lifetime affair: if you don’t capture the moments as they happen, you won’t have any other way of remembering it. You just have to do it once and do it right. For this reason, you should find a photographer whose services are – not cheap – affordable.

    4. Get someone with style

    There is no shortage of wedding photographers. However, it is finding a professional whose style you’ll like that is the problem. Checking album samples and portfolios gives you an insight into what each of the service providers is capable of. At the end of the day, you should be able to find a photographer that can offer you something that is uniquely “you”.

    5. Ask for printed portfolios

    Viewing a photographer’s website could be deceiving sometimes since it is impossible to tell the actual quality of images and photos. A printed portfolio from a reputable wedding photographer such as MMG Photo Cinema gives you an accurate representation of their actual works.

  • Bright flashing lights. Pub signs. Hotel Vacancies. Las Vegas Casinos.

    All sorts of images can pop into your head when you think about neon lights. But what about neon for weddings?

    It can be hard to come up with original lighting and decoration concepts for weddings these days. With the rise of photo sharing apps and the likes of Pinterest, ideas are quickly shared around as everyone wants to do something creative for their special day that hasn’t been done before.

    So why not think about neon lighting?

    It’s a new concept based on an old technique. Neon gas was first discovered by scientists William Ramsay and Morris Travers back in 1898 when it was a rare naturally occurring substance. In the early 1900s George Claude made the first neon sign. He combined electric gasses and passed them through an electric current to make colourful discharges. He then discovered he could twist the glass tubing which held the neon gas – creating the first neon signs.

    The first modern neon lamp was put on display at the Paris Motor Show in 1910 – and the concept grew from there.

    Fast forward to the 21st century and neon lighting is being revived once again and making another comeback. It had major commercialisation in the 40s, the 70s and now it’s back – but with a classier twist than just the old pub signs of days gone by. 

    Neon lighting is eye catching, original, exciting and can add a personal touch to any wedding decor. Neon lights will give your guests something to remember you by.

    Here are some great neon lighting ideas. 

    NAMES ENTWINED IN A NEON DISPLAY

    A beautiful keepsake for years to come after your wedding. Get a customised neon light with your names lit up in a beautiful display. Or go a step further and have a neon light created of your faces!

    A "JUST MARRIED" OR "I LOVE YOU" SIGN 

    Rather than banners, buntings and strings of fairy lights, be original with a neon sign to place above the bride and groom at the head table. 

    NEON LIGHTS FOR A LAS VEGAS THEMED WEDDING 

    If you love neon and can't get enough, why not have a Las Vegas themed wedding and light up the reception hall with all things neon? A great way to create an event with plenty of dazzle for all to remember.

    RED HEART LIGHTS OR WEDDING BELLS

    A romantic red heard or wedding bells are beautiful classy lights that can be created in neon for weddings. They can be hung on a major wall or at an entrance to welcome guests. 

    DIRECTION SIGNS 

    Be original and create some neon lights with directions for guests about the various areas and amenities for your wedding. Signs pointing to the bar with a neon cocktail above it give an upbeat feel to any wedding. 

    DANCE FLOOR 

    What better way to get people in the mood for dancing than with a neon-lit dance floor area! It helps create a nightclub feel - perfect to get everyone off the chairs and to bust out their best wedding dance moves. 

    The great thing about neon signs is they last for years – in fact the neon tube can stay illuminated for 10 to 20 years! It can be seen as a special investment and you can keep your sign as a constant reminder of your special day and the love you share.

    Neon Creations can create any type of neon signs and neon lights to create a wedding to remember - and a special keepsake for years to come.

  • Brides and grooms want to remember the splendour of their wedding day and oftentimes, the only time they will wear their expensive gown. It is vital that wedding photographers in Melbourne captures every detail during the day, so the photographer puts a lot more preparation into the shoot. Here is a small behind the scenes look of a wedding photograph shoot.

    Research

    The photographer is going to put a lot of time and effort into researching the shoot. The location the photographs are taken to the time of day that will offer the best lighting must all be decided before talking to the bride and groom. He/she will also want to make sure they research the type of wedding you are planning and any traditions that go with it.

    Talk to the Couple

    When the photographer originally talks to the bride and groom, he/she is determining the type of style the couples prefer. The photographer wants to make sure the photographs showcase what the couple imagines when looking through wedding books. Some couples prefer black and white, while others are traditionalists. The only way to get into the mind of the couple is to set up appointments to talk with them.

    When wedding photographers in Melbourne talk to their clients, they will be taking notes about the locations the couple dreams of. However, it is vital to jot down who they want photographed because photographers do not want to take pictures that will not land sales.

    Create a Workable Schedule

    Everyone needs to be on the same page when it comes to time management. It is best if the photographer has a master schedule so he/she can figure out what time would be best to do portraits. These schedules are often made and then compared to other members of the wedding party in an arranged meeting prior to the wedding. It is important that the photographer know the timeline so no one is rushed in getting the perfect shot.

    Coordinate with Others for Assistance

    Once you have the schedule that needs to be met, the photographer will coordinate with others to make sure the schedule is adhered to. Many wedding photographers in Melbourne will use assistants to help keep track of the people who need to be photographed and keeping everything on track. It is hard enough to make sure all of the photographs are taken, and the poses look perfect. So, assistants are often used to carry the equipment, holding light reflectors, and keeping track of the shots taken.

    Mental Game

    Finally, wedding photographers in Melbourne are great at putting on a game face. Regardless of what has happened earlier in the day, they are ready to treat the bride and groom like royalty. It is imperative that they keep their cool because the stress levels that will be in the wedding party will be high. It is the wedding photographer's job to help keep an even keel. They plan for anything to go wrong so they have the ability to roll with the punches. This helps them create the perfect pictures for the memories you desire.

They work around the clock to make sure the experience is pleasurable and you have pictures to keep for a lifetime. Professional wedding photographers in Melbourne such as Noble Photography love to see you happy, and make sure each couple is treated uniquely.

  • Wedding photos are priceless and timeless – they represent the joy, passion, promise, love, and memories of your big day. Therefore, you cannot afford to choose the wrong wedding photographer.

    Do I Really need a Professional Wedding Photographer?

    Why should you hire a photographer when uncle Tim has this expensive camera that he just bought the other day? Not to forget that he loves taking pictures! The temptation to have a friend or relative handle your photography might look like an ingenious option, considering the potential savings that you could make. Don’t be fooled: unless uncle Tim is a professional wedding photographer, you should not even consider having him as your official photographer. It’s only a professional photographer that can create out of the box wedding photos for your special occasion.

    Top Tips To Consider When Choosing A Wedding Photographer

    1. Personalised Photography

    Wedding photography is not a one-size-fits-all service. Different couples have their own unique tastes and preferences that a photographer needs to capture. The photographer you choose should be able to offer a wide variety of photography styles that will capture the breadth and depth of your wedding. Looking through a photographer’s portfolio enables you to understand how he/she sees the world, and how he/she captures this perspective through images. Having said this, it is imperative that you choose a professional who is personable, and is committed to putting your interests first.

    2. Compare different photographers

    Choosing an ideal photographer should not be a trial and error affair. Checking the Yellow pages or running a Google search, and selecting the first service provider you set your eyes upon is ill advised. You must ensure that you conduct adequate research. If possible get referrals from trusted friends or relatives. Come up with a list of possible photographers to enable you compare their services and what they can offer you. During your research, meet face to face with the different photographers so that you can determine if they are a good match with what you are searching for. In addition, it will enable you to tell the photographers that you can get along with.

    3. Don’t  skimp on your photography budget

    In your wedding budget, you have allocated funds for every aspect - photography included. The challenge comes in if you allocate funds before settling on an ideal photographer. What happens if you find a wedding photographer in Brisbane, whose works you fancy but cannot afford his/her services from what you have in your budget? What if you are on a tight budget and cannot simply afford to hire a photographer? Remember, your wedding is a once in a lifetime affair: if you don’t capture the moments as they happen, you won’t have any other way of remembering it. You just have to do it once and do it right. For this reason, you should find a photographer whose services are – not cheap – affordable.

    4. Get someone with style

    There is no shortage of wedding photographers. However, it is finding a professional whose style you’ll like that is the problem. Checking album samples and portfolios gives you an insight into what each of the service providers is capable of. At the end of the day, you should be able to find a photographer that can offer you something that is uniquely “you”.

    5. Ask for printed portfolios

    Viewing a photographer’s website could be deceiving sometimes since it is impossible to tell the actual quality of images and photos. A printed portfolio from a reputable wedding photographer such as MMG Photo Cinema gives you an accurate representation of their actual works.
