the skins were tinted orange/red because of the lighting, if you were there you would of seen with your own eyes, which I take account when composing and I believe is more faithful to the scene and its ambiance...

Alas the human eye tends to automatically adjust itself to various lighting conditions seeing white as white whether in the yellow/orange cast of tungsten lights or in the green cast of fluorescent. So while your camera may have recorded the colour cast accurately I doubt that your eyes or that of the guests would have seen it this way. This discrepancy between how human vision automatically adjusts to varying light is a very good reason why WB is so important.
