Wedding Lighting at Loseley Park
Originally two separate barns which were moved into their current position and combined into one large space, the Tithe Barn at Loseley Park is a fascinating building which makes a stunning wedding venue set in equally stunning grounds.
The combination of two barns has created an unusual arrangement of beams which create a natural divide between the dining area and the dance floor. This makes it perfect for decorating the two areas in different but complementary ways using various types of lighting including fairy lights, chandeliers, paper lanterns, Edison bulbs and uplighting.
The lights give a soft, warm glow during the wedding breakfast and can be dimmed later in the day to create a sparkly backdrop to your evening entertainment.
Some of our most popular fairy light designs for Loseley are listed below:
- Gathered : lights hang from three beams, gathered more closely at the centre fixing point to form a bow shape.
- Crossed strands : strands of lights form a series of crosses between the beams.
- Single swag : parallel strands of lights suspended from two beams in one long swag.
Some styles of canopy work well in combination with other services such as a chandelier at the middle of a gathered canopy, or add decorative touches such as paper lanterns or pom poms to the lights.
As an alternative, LED festoon lights can be substituted in place of fairy lights for certain designs - please enquire for more details.
The barn's beams are ideal for hanging our beautiful chandeliers, which are available in several different styles (click here for details).
Hang several chandeliers in a row along the centre of the barn, or combine them with fairy lights at the centre of a gathered canopy or between the crosses formed by a crossed strand canopy.
We have a large range of lantern colours available which can be mixed and patching to suit the colour scheme of the wedding. During the day each lantern is individually lit by a warm white light bulb inside each one.
In the evening they can be dimmed or can optionally be switched into "disco mode", which makes all of the lanterns change through a coordinated sequence of colours for an impressive disco effect above the dance floor.
Alternatively, unlit paper lanterns can be added as a finishing touch to some of our fairy light canopies.
The bulbs come in mixed sizes, shapes and styles of filament and are hung at randomly varying heights to create a truly unique display. The bulbs are of course fully dimmable and give a lovely warm, golden light.
We supply a simple controller with a button for each of your chosen moods. All of the lights are controlled wirelessly by the controller, so switching between settings is as simple as pushing a single button.
An example uplighting setup might be:
- Day : a sophisticated gold to complement fairy lights and create an intimate atmosphere for dining.
- Early evening / first dance : a colour of choice to work with the wedding colour scheme.
- Dancing : synchronised gradual colour changing for a full-room effect to complement band or disco lighting.
At Loseley Park, drapes can be attached to the beams in an up-and-over style to create an arch shape. Alternatively faux curtain drops can be added to both ends of the beam and dropped to the floor.
We use wide, high quality flame-retardant voile for our drapes ensuring safety and a lush, luxurious look.
We have built up a lot of experience installing lighting at Loseley Park so we're able to install large scale displays as efficiently as possible while causing the minimum disruption.
