Wedding Lighting Hire at Charlton House
Uplighters and Fairy Lights for a reception at a Jacobean Venue.
"EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! ESPECIALLY THE FAIRY LIGHT CANOPY IN THE OLD LIBRARY."
Charlton House and Gardens is full of heritage and located in acres of gorgeous parkland, making it an ideal wedding venue. We helped Primary School teacher Olivia create the backdrop for her big day through the hire of some lighting to create a special atmosphere.
Winter Weddings are the perfect opportunity to embrace the cold weather outside and create a cosy indoor atmosphere, which is exactly what our client wanted to do at Charlton House. Having found Flipside online, the 'bride to be' approached us about hiring out some lighting to transform the venue.
It was great to hear directly from a customer that our website was a key factor in helping them choose us to assist them on their special day, as Olivia commented that our specific specialisation in weddings and professional looking site swung her decision.
A Brief Trip to the Venue
To get an idea of what was going to be required; we had an initial site meeting at Charlton House, which allowed us to see the different spaces that Olivia had chosen for her wedding reception. It was clear from the outset the venue needed some additional atmosphere that we knew that some wedding lighting hire would soon resolve.
For the wedding reception, a couple of different rooms were to be used, The Long Gallery for welcome drinks and The Old library for the dinner & of course dancing later in the evening.
Getting the Wedding Lighting Right
For The Long Gallery, we used sixteen battery-powered uplighters to create a dark intimate setting. We made use of fairy lights for The Grand Staircase leading to the drinks reception & more battery-powered uplighters on each landing.
The biggest challenge of this wedding hire job was The Old Library, where Olivia had requested a fairy light canopy. We used approximately 350m of fairy lights to create the canopy, along with more battery-powered uplighters on the ground floor and mezzanine level.
Outside Wedding Lighting Hire
There were also battery-powered uplighters outside to light up arches going through to The Old Library, helping to direct guests. With these outdoor lights being IP rated, this meant we did not have to worry about the weather turning on us.
Feedback from Wedding Party
As always, we love to get some feedback from our customers and in this instance from some of the guests. Olivia informed us that 'Lots of people commented on the lovely cosy atmosphere, which the venue certainly did not possess without the lights!'
Found your dream wedding venue but feel like it is lacking that 'wow factor'? Some professional lighting can resolve this, and equally so can some quality sound equipment.
