Nothing sets the mood for your wedding quite like lighting. From twinkling string lights and stylish festoons to sparkling baubles, the right lighting is more than just functional. It also expresses your wedding style and creates an unforgettable ambience for you and your guests. Lighting is everything when it comes to elevating an ordinary space into something extraordinary.

With our extensive experience in supplying both indoor and outdoor lighting solutions for weddings, we will be delighted to help you choose the perfect lights and wedding decorations for your big day.

String Lights

Stunning in photos, perfect for creating a warm and sparkling atmosphere and ideal for accentuating venue features like beautiful beams and high ceilings – fairy lights are enduringly popular whatever your wedding style or theme.

Fairy lights are incredibly flexible. They work beautifully along walls, pillars, beams, ceilings and outdoors. Ceiling fairy light installations are ideal for wow factor lighting and create an exceptional backdrop for photographers.

Outside they can create pathways to guide guests, wrap around trees, go round the edges of roofs and buildings or along balconies and under parasols.

Fairy Lights can make all the difference when it comes to dressing your wedding venue. They can go anywhere in any quantity.

Fabulous Festoon Lights

Festoon lights are a fabulous lighting choice for rustic or outdoor weddings but they also suit urban chic, loft style and vintage wedding themes. Whether your design is structured or informal they are the ideal lights if you want eye-catching light that makes a stunning style statement in photos.

As well as canopies, festoons are flexible and can be dropped down walls to create a back drop, swagged between pillars or combined with fairy lights for added texture. Festoon lights make a big impact even in relatively small quantities making them an ideal partner to other lights and decorations. Outdoors they’re ideal for adding light to a patio or courtyard area, making it usable well into the night.

Battery Lights

Ever popular and still a best seller, you will love our range of battery powered fairy lights. They are designed to take the hassle out of creating fairy light displays as there are no power cables to worry about. Ideal for table decorations, battery operated fairy lights provide a beautiful look, safe for public use and an inexpensive solution to light up areas you thought impossible, making them a natural choice for weddings, parties or any other event.
