FESTOON & PEA LIGHTING HIRE
ON TOUR EVENTS TALKS ''FESTOON'' AND SHARES SOME USEFUL INFORMATION
HIRE ALL FESTOON LIGHTING & PEA LIGHTING FOR YOUR WEDDING TO MAKE IT TRULY MAGICAL
When planning the lighting for your wedding ceremony or reception, festoon lighting is one of those details that make the evening feel magical. There’s simply no other word to describe these wedding lights. They can really bring your wedding to life as well as instil that crucial romantic ambience.
Festoon lights (also called pea lights, string lights, fairy lights, bistro lights, etc.) are unique because they play a functional role in highlighting certain features of your wedding whilst simultaneously being one of the most talked-about features themselves!
+WHY HIRE FESTOON OR PEA LIGHTING FOR YOUR WEDDING / EVENT?
Nothing says “fairytale” quite like festoon lighting. Perfect for both indoor and outdoor venues, festoon lights add sparkle to your wedding decor in a simple but compelling way. By adding a fun and light-hearted element to the overall wedding aesthetic, they create ambience and look fabulous in those all-important wedding photographs!
From tiny LED sparkles to statement-making Edison-style industrial bulbs, festoon lighting comes in multiple shapes and sizes. Their flexibility guarantees you’ll find something that effortlessly matches your wedding theme and creates the atmosphere you’ve been dreaming of.
Although impactful and gorgeous enough in their own right, you can incorporate fabric drapes to completely change the appearance and aesthetic of festoon lights. This could include draping fabric from the ceiling, around the stage, or across features such as internal columns or trees if you’re outside.
Finally, don’t forget about just how functional these lighting fixtures can be.
Festoon lighting takes on a whole new role for outdoor wedding events. When outdoors, lighting has heightened importance and has become incredibly popular for marquee and teepee-based wedding ceremonies and receptions.
You can use them to decorate and enhance dim entrances, demarcate walkways in an outdoor space, or wrap them around trees and bushes to brighten outside areas.
You could also use them to highlight key features of your venue, such as a photo booth, mobile bar, or rustic ceiling beams.
+WHAT OTHER TYPES OF LIGHTING SHOULD I HIRE FOR MY WEDDING?
Excellent lighting is vital when trying to create the atmosphere of your wedding. Combining the charm of festoon lights with the drama of other types of lighting ensures that your venue looks stunning during the event and afterwards in photographs!
A popular pairing involves combining fairy lights with wireless uplighters. Together, you can use them to enhance natural features such as columns, trees, and even walls. By doing so, you can add another dimension and colour to your space.
If you have ample outdoor space and an evening wedding, floodlights will light up space so you and your guests won’t trip over anything when making their way to and from the loos, for example!
Regarding your evening’s entertainment, dramatic stage lighting, lasers, and moving head lights are the perfect addition to your live band or DJ set up, and pin spot lights can further emphasise your centrepieces. Similarly, you can hire a spotlight to follow the happy couple around the room during their first dance.
The combinations and options are endless. They depend entirely on how you want your wedding to look and feel. We are always on hand to talk you through your options and provide you with solutions that maximise your allocated lighting budget.
Speaking of which, how much is your wedding event lighting hire going to cost?
+HOW MUCH DOES HIRE WEDDING LIGHTING COST?
Out of all the event production services we provide, wedding lighting probably has the broadest range in potential pricing since it depends entirely on your specifications.
The factors that influence the cost the most are your budget, the size of your venue, and the number of guests. Also, outdoor weddings typically require more lighting since they don’t have any in-house lights to complement what you plan on hiring in for the event.
You might also need to factor in that performers such as DJ’s often demand extravagant lighting setups with multiple different types of lighting as part of their rider.
If you want to keep your lighting setup simple, a set of venue uplighters will set you back around £500. At the upper end of the scale, hiring various professional stage lights, uplighters, pin spot lights, moving head fixtures, all of the associated truss structures and rigging, along with the staple festoon lights, can cost upwards of £10,000.
If you want to know how much an “average” couple spends with us, most spend in the region of £1,000 to £3,000. But we would like to stress that these are weddings that have 200-300 guests. You may have something much smaller in mind, and we can be just as competitive on smaller lighting setups.
