Whether a baby shower or big birthday, engagement party or wedding of your dreams – if you’re reading this blog, then you’re here to celebrate and we’re here to help you do it and shine. Because by adding thoughtful and unique lighting choices, you can transform a room, create an atmosphere and make your celebration truly your own. From Yorkshire light up letters to fairy-light canopies, neon lights and vintage chandeliers, discover why lighting will make this an occasion to remember.
1 Once upon a time
There can be no other decorative feature that defines the atmosphere and mood of an event quite like lighting. Whether you want to echo the gentle romance of a fairy-tale by candlelight or catapult your guests back to the roaring 20s with Gatsby-inspired vintage chandeliers, at Typical Type we offer so much more than simply Yorkshire light up letters.
We are believers in bespoke lighting, so you can illuminate your day, your way. Set the tone, the scene, the excitement to come – bespoke lighting is all it takes.
2 Light the way
Bespoke lighting options will leave your guests swooning, without leaving you weak at the knees over the price. Custom is at the heart of what we do and we’ll collaborate with you to let the lighting do the work. Statement lighting can have multiple uses throughout an event, from zoning your venue to creating album-ready backdrops.
A single light installation could form a breath-taking feature suspended above the aisle, and then later your top table. Or perhaps you imagine retro-style neon lettering to set the scene with a birthday message, then double up as a DIY photo booth backdrop. With bespoke event lights, a little can go a long way.
3 Your story in lights
Your newly married name, your big moment graduation or engagement party, or the most exciting gender reveal – give this exciting chapter the star treatment it deserves, and put it in lights! When you choose our light up letters in Yorkshire, you get more than you bargained for.
Each letter stands at an incredible 1.8m tall and is newly painted for each and every event, including yours. Give it a custom twist with colour to enhance the moment you’re marking. At Typical Type, you’re not limited to off-the-peg ideas you’ve seen before. This is your chance to make it your own.
4 Work the room
Not all events take place in grand venues, and we’re always excited by the opportunity to dress up a local hall or even a room within your own home. Installing feature lighting can instantly transform a space. Whether a glowing ceiling filled with reams of fairy lights, or your village hall given a glamorous treatment with chandeliers.
Let’s not forget the garden too, where flickering lanterns atop shepherd hooks can light the way for guests to a marquee. Or, imagine festoon lights framing an open-air dance floor, perfect for your first dance. Just a few lighting choices can add so much magic to an event. It really is as simple as that.
5 Evoke a theme
Bathe your celebration in colour co-ordinated uplighters as part of a luxurious gender reveal party. Dress your venue in lighting that pays tribute to your favourite decade. Or start the party with the most stylish Yorkshire light up letters and neon slogan lights. Whatever theme you want to transport your guests to, do it with light.
