Hanging Filament Lamp Light Bulbs

Nothing says stylish lighting design more than suspended filament light bulbs. These retro-look glowing lamps set on pendant drops are available to hire to compliment any event space, wedding barn, or marquee tent.


Edison filament light bulbs have been reinvented this century and can complement any venue with their unique vintage style and industrial flair.  Thomas Edison, dubbed “The Wizard of Menlo Park”, certainly knew what he wanted to achieve stylistically when creating these treasures! Little did he know how popular filament lamp light bulb hire would be.

Wedding Hanging Filament Lamps

You only have to look to Pinterest & Instagram to notice that hanging filament lamps have become a ‘staple look’ for wedding lighting. Maybe it’s the glowing exposed filament with its warm light that the lamps produce?  Or how pleasing it is to the eye to see the symmetrical design? Either way, filament lamps have soared in popularity being used in wedding marquees and stretch tents giving vast coverage. From installations being in the eaves of a roof, or in a barn strung across from beam to beam.

Event Filament Lamp Light Bulb Hire

When you think of a festival or outdoor corporate event lighting your immediate thought is to visualise filament lamps suspended overhead.  With the development of LED technology the light bulbs we now use now offer no limitation with regards to the distance, they can cover. This allows festoons with pendent lighting designs suspended within vast tree canopies, along walkways, and for more functional uses around seating and food areas.

There are three main components that make up filament lamp lighting hires:

Festoon belts, pendant extensions, and light bulbs. We are proud to hold in our rental stock the Festive Lights, FestoonPro (commercial-grade) range of festoon belts, and extensions. These electrical cables with lamp holders spaced at intervals carry the power consecutively to each light bulb.

We stock a large number of different light bulbs, from the classic filament lamps that have a traditional glow and create a warm look when dimmed, to the new LED versions that shine bright and give a more contemporary look. Our light bulb stock comes in many different shapes and sizes check out our dedicated gallery linked here showing our popular version.

Types of Hanging Filament Lamp Light Bulb Hire

Production & Wet Hire allows our skilled lighting crew to deliver, install, and remove all rental items. For a wedding or event production, this style of lighting may be part of a larger order with the light bulbs creating a feature in a selected space. A Wet Hire of this style of lighting would see our crew arrive with all the required items to create your desired lighting design. Generally, these designs are a bespoke build from our range of stocked items. From 10 years of experience in installations of wedding and event lighting, we have also created packages that we class as  ‘popular requests’. These packages have been tailor-made to accommodate a variety of different setups and budgets. For example an ‘outside seating area’ that would include a set amount of festoons belts, pendent extensions, and lamps, plus supporting up-right poles. Our highly skilled team can advise what best suits your requests.
