Lighting Both Rooms at the Monks Barn in Hurley

Lighting Both Rooms at the Monks Barn in Hurley

One of the best features of the wonderful Monks' Barn in Hurley is the fact that you get two separate rooms to use for different purposes on your wedding day, and plenty of time to decorate them.

For this gloriously colourful wedding we were asked to install a large fairy light canopy in the Great Hall and a colour changing disco lantern canopy above the dance floor in the smaller barn.

Wireless LED uplighters and a large white backdrop on the stage finished off the look, all coming together to transform an already beautiful venue while working with its stunning existing features.
