Stylish and beautiful, Edison bulbs are exposed hanging bulbs with intricate filaments which glow in a gorgeously warm golden colour. Whether they're hung under beams or clustered together as a stunning centrepiece they are a perfect choice for vintage, urban, industrial and loft-style weddings.
We use assorted bulbs varying in size, shape and filament style in our custom-made wiring looms to create stunning displays as spectacular feature lighting for weddings and events.
Our lighting services for weddings and events include all equipment hire, installation and removal.
The lamps use delicate tungsten filaments arranged in beautiful patterns inside glass envelopes of varying shapes and sizes. Each lamp is individually wired so that it can be positioned exactly as required for the best effect. The bulbs are usually hung at random heights, giving additional depth and visual interest to the canopy.
The lamps naturally produce light in a very warm white or golden colour which is flattering to skin tones and looks superb in photos. When they're dimmed in the evening, using the supplied dimmers, the glowing filaments turn an even warmer shade that looks breathtaking above an evening reception or dance floor.
As an optional finishing touch, metal wire cages can be added to selected bulbs.
There are two main ways to incorporate Edison bulbs into a wedding décor scheme:
- Clustered together as a statement piece, for example above the top table
- Suspended from the beams overhead as a larger canopy
Our custom-made wiring looms have been designed to allow the flexibility to install in a variety of ways to achieve a beautiful display that's perfectly adapted to the specifics of each venue.
Custom built using the highest quality components, our Edison bulb canopies use Bakelite bulb holders on black wire for that authentic vintage look. The bulb and filament shapes have been carefully selected for their unique, interesting style while looking great together as a group.
We install our bulb canopies on dimmers so the right atmosphere can be set for the evening reception.
Experienced in working in old and listed buildings, we respect the venues where we work and use temporary, non-damaging fixings. We take safety seriously and can supply evidence of our public liability insurance (PLI) and portable applicance testing (PAT). We undertake working at height and electrical safety training and all of our ladders, scaffold towers and specialist equipment is regularly maintained and checked.
We pride ourselves on our smart, efficient and polite approach to installs and pack downs. Our eye for detail, technical excellence and designs that maximise the venue features are borne from our extensive experience specialising in barn lighting.
