Fairy Lights

Fairy light canopy at Ardington House Outdoor Fairy Lights at Ardington House A canopy of fairy lights installed above the dining area adds real sparkle to the marquee during the wedding breakfast and looks absolutely stunning after dark.

The lights are a bright, warm white colour and are installed up and over the ceiling from the eaves to the apex and down again to form a canopy that runs the full length of the dining area of the marquee and into the hip end where the top table is usually situated.

Our fairy lights are the highest quality commercial lights which are very bright and fully dimmable. We install them with an easy to use controller so that they can be bright during the day and then turned down during the evening entertainment.

Outdoors, the bridge and temple can be decorated with fairy lights for an amazing effect after dark, as can the jasmine arch around the main entrance to the marquee.


Paper Lanterns

Paper lanterns and fairy lights The white marquee ceiling is the perfect place to add a touch of colour with paper lanterns.

Add a cluster of lanterns to a fairy light or festoon canopy, or use lanterns as a distributed canopy throughout the marquee ceiling.

The lanterns are available in a range of sizes and a wide range of colours, and we can also offer pom poms and paper honeycomb balls for different textures.


Festoon Lights

Ardington House Festoons and Lanterns

With their larger bulbs, festoons are a great alternative to fairy lights. Shown here with paper and lace lanterns added to selected bulbs.

Arranged in a similar up-and over canopy style, they give a similar amount of light to fairy lights but with a more rustic or festival look.

Our festoons use warm white bulbs on white wire and are of course fully dimmable.


Disco Lights

Optionally concealed behind a reveal curtain until the start of the evening entertainment, the dancing area of the marquee can be treated as a separate space for decoration and lighting.

We have some sophisticated disco lights available which come with a controller that allows you to create just the right atmosphere, ranging from a simple colour wash during the first dance to full-on intelligent moving effects, lasers and UV!
