Wedding backdrops with a difference


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.


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.


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.
