Aisle and walkway carpets

We have available to hire a number of different aisle and walkway carpets to create your desired look and style. Popular options are our ivory aisle runners for wedding celebrations and our red carpet entrance runners for parties and VIP events. These are of the highest quality and have woven edging for a more stylish finish.

Ivory Aisle Runner

We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality carpet with woven edges and a rich ivory colour. Each runner we stock is meticulously cleaned prior to use.
When the service is booked a member of our Dreamwave Crew will install this for you before guests arrive, making sure all is perfect for that special moment when you walk down the aisle.

Popular sizes of our hire stock are 1m or 1.2m wide by 8m or 10m long. We have custom-made aisle runners for some wedding venues we regularly work at, for example, Hengrave Hall and Bruisyard Hall.

Red Carpet Hire

Our plush red carpet walkways with woven edges can be used inside or out. These can be used to enhance a venue’s entrance or a walkway leading to your event.
If required rope and posts can be added each side of the carpet for a real VIP entrance experience.

Popular sizes of our hire stock are 1.2m wide by 5m long. These can be joined together for longer entrances.

Backdrops

If you want to create a feature behind your DJ/band, top table or conceal an area of your venue then our backdrops maybe the answer.  Choose from style options like a traditional voile covered fairy light backdrop or why not strip it back with our popular naked versions.  You could use uncovered and exposed fairy lights, festoons or hanging Edison lamps to create a more dynamic, powerful impression.

Fairy Lights

We stock white and black cabled fairy lights with warm glowing LEDs. These can be used as much or as little as you desire. Popular styles for wedding backdrops are a loose drop of white cabled fairy lights hung behind an ivory voile, or a more intense style with larger amount of fairy lights spaced every 20/30cm apart.

Festoons

Black or white festoon cables with traditional lamps look great ‘naked’ hanging down from the support framework. These can be set on a dimmer pack to enhance the style and look of the warm glowing filament lamps.

Draping

Our bespoke voile drapes can be used on their own to mask and hide areas around a room, or to create a continuous backdrop around a venue.  We can add up-lights behind the voile to add a wash of colour to suit your theme.

Tech Spec

  • Delivered, setup, installed and removed by a ‘Dreamwave Crew’ member
  • Freestanding, self-supporting ‘pipe and base’ framework used to hold up backdrop
  • Easily configured to work in the most challenging of venues
  • Typical size for a wedding backdrop is 6m wide by 3m high
  • Custom designs and sizes available for walls and full room coverage

Inspiration

For a more industrial look why not try our white high gloss framework with Edison hanging lamps or a white festoon wall?

Band Lighting

Light up your band with a flood of colour using our LED par can hire or compact light sets.

Canopy Lighting

Create a stunning overhead canopy lighting effect using our warm glow fairy light strings.

These are perfect for barns, hung and draped between the supporting beams, producing a really enchanting effect. They can also provide a distraction to cover unsightly ceilings within venues.

For a hung canopy with a dense fuller effect, you can have the fairy light strings spaced 30cm apart. If you wish to create a slightly sparser look these can be spaced around 60cm apart.
