I have lighting in my genes! My father, David Ashton, started WA's first lighting company (Ashton Admor, formerly Ashton Stage Lighting) in the 1970's, and together The Ashton Family has been lighting up shows, weddings and events in our awesome state for over 50 years and I'm incredibly proud to have become a professional Lighting Designer, Drapes Manufacturer and to be the Owner / Manager of Southern Light Events.
My passion has always been in solving technical problems that have been unsolved by others, like the understanding of triplen harmonics in dimmers in 1987, before it was understood. Also the understanding of gain structure in PA systems, which caused many systems to under-perform, adding a host of complex faults in school PA's. In most cases these were caused over decades of additions, by electricians with no understanding of the work, or problem solving in general.

Living and working the audio world in WA’s southwest region has given me great insight into the direction of all types of events in and around ‘my place’. It’s a privilege to evolve with the local entertainment and tourism industry …our region grows with much new vision, amongst the old stalwarts. Making any space look, and sound, amazing is part of the magic. At Southern Light Events we never oversell gear you don’t need ~ we just bring the party! People meeting people. That’s what we do.

Southern Light Events is SUPER EXCITED to share our stunning new website with the world! It's been a long time in the making, but as they say, all the best things in life are worth waiting for and we think our new online presence has definitely been worth the wait!
What a year 2016 was for Southern Light Events and the invitation to move in and cohabit with the extraordinarily talented Johny 'Soundy' Strickland at what's set to be one of the south west's most awesome new music recording and production studios, has just topped it off!
While traditional wedding lighting will always have its place, there are a host of exciting new options available and that will give your event a distinct edge.
Styling your wedding with lights may not be as simple as you think! That’s why, if budget permits, you should consider engaging an event lighting specialist;
