Fairy Lighting

Fairy lighting hire is a timeless and versatile effect. We are able to create magical and classic lighting designs with our large stock of fairy lights.


Fairy lighting hire can completely transform any venue or environment either indoors or outdoors. This classic lighting effect has stood the test of time and gained respect as a ‘well-established staple product’ in our rental stock.


Your enquiry may have led you to us, already having a vision in mind for the use of fairy lighting hire. We would love to know how you have been inspired. A good way to visualise this lighting effect is to see how it looks in a similar environment. Click on these dedicated galleries, which show examples of our fairy lights installed in marquees, barns, and traditional venues, as well as being used in many different configurations outside.

Wedding Fairy Lights

You only have to look to Pinterest & Instagram to notice that fairy lighting has become a longstanding ‘staple look’ for wedding lighting. Maybe it’s the soft warm light output they produce?  Or how pleasing it is to the eye to see the symmetrical design? Either way, fairy lights have always been used to create popular effects 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 Fairy Lighting Hire

When you think of an event space that requires fairy lighting your immediate thought is to visualise this effect suspended within structures and key features.  With the development of technology the small LED light bulbs now offer no limitation with regards to the distance, they can cover. This allows fairy lighting to be suspended within vast tree canopies, along walkways, and for more functional uses around seating and food areas.

Fairy Lighting Hire Stock

We are proud to hold in our rental stock the Festive Lights, ConnectPro (commercial-grade) range of fairy lights. These electrical cables with small LED lamps spaced at intervals carry the power consecutively to each string of lights.

We stock a large number of different fairy lighting string versions including black and while cables in both mains and battery-powered solutions.  Our mains power strings have the option to dim them with the connection of a dimming control pack. This feature is a perfect way to adjust the brightness and desired effect.

Fairy lighting hire can be configured into canopies, backdrops, beam wrapping, swagging….. The options and combinations for this magical fairy lighting effect are endless!

Types of Fairy Lighting 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 fairy lights creating a feature in a selected space. A Wet Hire of festoons 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 lighting, we have also created packages that we class as  ‘popular requests’. These packages have been tailor-made to accommodate a variety of different wedding setups and budgets. For example an ‘outside seating area’ that would include a set amount of fairy light strings, plus supporting up-right poles. Our highly skilled team can advise what best suits your requests.

Dry Hire can be very appealing for those clients who wish to rent one of our popular fairy lighting packages to set up and use as they wish. These selected packages can be delivered and collected via courier with simple instructions on how to install and operate the lighting.
