Lanterns, Shades & Chandeliers

All can be hired for your wedding or party


These three hire services are indeed very different yet when added to a number of our other hire services – Lanterns, Shades & Chandeliers can enhance the effect and transform the look.


We stock an extensive range of lanterns for hire ranging from Moroccan, classic and rustic vintage. Various sizes and finishes are available. These items look fantastic when teamed up with LED candles from our vast collection. If required we can provide you with the full specification and sizes of all our metal and wooden lanterns.

Use them to dress window sills, a wedding ceremony aisle, or why not hang them outside in trees or bushes.

Chinese Lanterns

Is it a lantern or a shade? Who knows, but we use it as both. Our stock of hanging paper and nylon lanterns can be used hung on their own from barn beams or from a marquee lining to give a colourful canopy look or they can be added to our festoon lighting hung at mixed heights from pendants to illuminate them for a full effect.


We have a large catalogue of varying lamp shades in stock, from vintage fabrics to metal cages. These can be used with our hanging pendants to create a quirky installation in a marquee or function room. Team them up with some of our vintage lamps for a more rustic look.

Looking to create an even more magical effect? Let us install these brilliant shades outside in a tree canopy. This will make a great place for your guests to convene and hang out whilst having evening drinks.


Check out our custom built chandelier. A wooden rustic carriage with a collection of hanging vintage lamps concealed in Kilner jars.

More traditional hanging lamp chandeliers coming soon to our hire inventory. Watch this space!
