Jingle All the Way – Festive Lighting Rental Installations

I’m dreaming of a well lit Christmas with lots of twinkly fairy lights and wondrous lighting effects.  Seems like dreams do come true!  The Dreamwave Lighting team bought gifts of snowflake effects, cascading fairy lights and ice blue festive lighting for the season.

We were approached by First Site in Colchester to install Christmas lighting for the main room function space ready for their Christmas Parties 2018.  We created their desired effect using Up-lighters for a “block-wash”of colour, snowflake shakes for added impact and overhead dimmable warm glow fairy lighting in a crossed design.

Up-lighting, artificial white Christmas trees with warm glowing fairy lights, whimsical fairy lit backdrops with snowflake effects and gobo projections along with an icicle lit bar area are among the effects positioned at Wivenhoe House for their Christmas party season 2018.  The lighting has set the scene for being the winter wonderland party central.  With one of our Dreamwave DJ’s providing the entertainment, you are guaranteed a night of festive cheer.

GeeWizz Midsummer Ball 2018 Kesgrave Hall

We do not need magic to change the world; we need people like Gina Long, MBE and founder of GeeWIzz Foundation, to raise funds for charity by organising events like the GeeWizz Midsummer Ball.  Her success is from championing a cause greater than herself.  GeeWizz was created to help children, young adults and their families, living with disability and those affected by cancer in Suffolk and Norfolk.

GeeWizz Midsummer Ball 2018

The first ever GeeWizz Midsummer Ball was held this year at The Hangar, Milsoms Kesgrave Hall in Suffolk.   We, at Dreamwave Events, are proud to have offered our support.  I’m please to say the event was a more than a sound success raising nearly £50,000!

Hundreds of guests attended a glorious evening of fantastic food and exceptional entertainment.  There was music, dancing and a grand auction to be enjoyed by the all in a sunny summer setting.

How did Dreamwave support the GeeWizz Midsummer Ball?

We were sooooo pleased that Gina approached us again for our help following our previous pairings at the Fenwick and Milsoms Fashion Show in 2018 and Secret Garden Charity Ball in 2016.  Gina asked us to provide our top quality DJ equipment for Guest DJ; PA Sound Systems; our skilled Dreamwave DJ’s and insatllation of our exquisite Lighting concepts. We gladly obliged as one of their main sponsors.

 

Gina said: “We just wanted to say the BIGGEST THANK YOU for your WONDERFUL support in helping us raise £48,797  for our very special GeeWizz Charity at our Midsummer Party, on what was the most perfect Friday evening at Milsom’s Kesgrave Hall.  To say you so went above the call of duty, would be an understatement.  I am indebted to you, you really are SUPERSTARS, thank you, thank you, thank you.  The Hangar and Kesgrave Hall Gardens, looked so absolutely beautiful. It really was the best, most memorable, magical evening, one that everybody loved being at.  Ali LOVED working with you all, we can’t wait to work with you again and again.”

Outside – DJ and Concept Lighting at Kesgrave Hall

Our Festoons were positioned outside in Festival style lighting hanging from tree to tree, decorated with foliage from Figa & Co, leading guests down steps to The Hangar entrance.  Selected trees were also wrapped in our Fairy Lights to further enhance the festival feel.

The festival feel event lighting continued down the steps leading to our Dreamwave designed outdoor stage wood pallet composition with a hessian backdrop.  This was additionally complemented by hanging lamps, our Wooden DJ Booth , large Vintage Blaze retro lights to add to the vibe and a stunning enrichment of foliage.  The composition of this set up completely blew me away!  On top of this, our Dreamwave DJ performed our renowned Cocktail DJ Set whilst guests arrived to upbeat festival music in the mix.

We supplied and installed lose hanging festoons in the entrance marquee and further greenery was added by Figa & Co to continue the theme.

The Main Hangar Area

The festival vibe progressed into the main Hangar area by hanging pendant lamps and foliage around the wall areas.  A simple Fairy Light design was hung to a central point.

Our specialist Dreamwave Lighting Technician controlled the lighting from our own control desk to create the inspired festive effect.

The guest DJ’s, Brandon Block and Alex P, performed their stupendous sets on our supplied DJ Equipment and Dreamwave designed Pallet Booth with one of our Dreamwave DJ’s filling the gaps.

 

All in all it was a pretty awesome day.  Judging by the amount raised the event was obviously a huge success that was enjoyed by all who attended.  We had a great time.  Thank you to Gina Long and GeeWizz for asking us to be part of the day!

Outside Fairy Lighting Options

You can truly transform your outdoor space and make the most of your evening party.  Whether it be a wedding or private function, you can inject a little light into the area using outside fairy lighting.  These super sparkly versatile gems are just what is needed to ensure your guests continue to use the outdoor expanse into your evening.

I want to share with you my favourite ways to use outside fairy lighting to enhance exterior features at your wedding or party venue:

Outside Fairy Light Canopies

Possibly my ultimate pick of the bunch and absolutely the most impacting.  These emit elegance and incur that wow factor.  A fairy light canopy is proof that you don’t need green fingers to make the most of the gardens! Even a bland and quite frankly ordinary space can be transformed with a bespoke design of outside fairy lights.

With choices from single and multi swag canopies to crossed strands and fans – there will always be a design to suit different outdoor confirmations.

Trees  / Shimmering Shrubs

Border hedging, shrubbery and trees lend themselves to fantastic decorative opportunities to illuminate outdoor spaces into a whimsical wonderland!  Fairy lights wrapped around trunks or draped within the foliage create beautiful eye catching features.

Other Uses of Outside Fairy Lighting

Why not look at accentuating other features and areas by wrapping beams with Fairy Lights.  Alternatively, make a shimmering backdrop by having a stylish lit curtain draped to the floor?

 

Dreamwave Events on Outside Fairy Lights –

I caught my fellow Dreamwaver and crew member, Spike Grimsey, to catch his take on Outside Fairy Lighting:

“Fairy Lights remain timeless and magical.  They can transform any space with delicate ambience”

 

Quality and Installation

Every fairy Light concept will be custom design to every outdoor space, taking into account the layout and permanent features.  This results in the ultimate fairy light combination designed to complement and enhance every venue’s attributes.  Our fairy light installations are recommended by a multitude of wedding and party venues across Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk and the surrounding areas.  This is due to the professional quality of our product and expertise of our team.

As I have mentioned, our fairy lighting is of commercial quality and is all IP44 rated.  So, what does this mean?  In a nutshell, this means that all our fairy lighting used outside is specifically designed for external use.  No more worrying about the possibility of impending rain from threatening dark clouds!
