Off-the-peg or one-of-a-kind? We know which we’d prefer when dreaming and designing our wedding day. After all, you’re only going to do it once, so why settle when you can make it your own? Here at Typical Type wedding event hire Yorkshire, we’re the go-to team for unique lighting and decor that gives you butterflies with a bespoke design just for you. Here are 11 gorgeous ideas to inspire you. The sky’s the limit to light up your wedding day.

1 Pared back beauty

Cascading exposed bulbs have long been a look that couples love, but how do you make them your own? With our bespoke approach, it’s yours for the making – suspended from a vintage ladder laden with leafy fronds, or glittering against a stone wall in an orangery. Light’s what you make it at this wedding event hire Yorkshire team.

2 Simple strings

Keep things classic while still creating a look that’s ‘just so’. Share your vision of soft and romantic reams of lights and we’ll coordinate every string. A one-of-a-kind finish for you without any of the legwork.

3 Trail of lights

This one’s perfect for outdoor wedding venues or estates where you have the entire place to yourselves. Guide your guests between mini venues at your location with strings of lights suspended from shepherd hooks. We’ll make sure the lights go the distance and will design a look that is bespoke for your venue and grounds. No need to compromise with standard solutions for your wedding event hire Yorkshire.

4 Capture your spirit

Our fluorescent light phrases make it oh-so easy (and chic!) to express your personalities in light. Use them to create a gorgeous centrepiece to a floral arch, to light up a brick wall, or to blaze above the bar or dance floor. You say the word, and we’ll light them up.

5 Bulbs and balloons

We’re here to create the big picture dream for you, not just to drop off some lights and leave you to it. So, however you imagine dressing your lighting, with armfuls of balloons or blooms or something else, we’re the wedding event hire Yorkshire company to rise to the challenge for you.

6 Colour your day

When you think of lights, so often it’ll be warm white that springs to mind. But our palette has sweeping strokes of any colour you can imagine. Brighten a venue, set the tone for the dance floor or illuminate the trees for a magical open air first dance, or to coordinate with a late night fireworks display. You dream it, we do it with our tailor-made approach.

7 Twinkle walls

Fill your photos with that irresistible, out of focus soft light that only a fairy light wall can create. Perfect to frame your top table, dance floor or to wrap your entire wedding teepee in!


8 Your name in lights

Sure, illuminated letters aren’t something new. But at Typical Type, you’ll still enjoy our unique approach to lighting installations, with each and every letter hand painted for every event, and standing at an enormous 1.8m tall!

9 Complementing your venue

Of course, for most couples you’ll already have some lighting to work with at your venue. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add your own stamp and turn it up a level. Show us where you’re working with and we’ll design the dreamiest lighting additions to elevate the setting and add magic by the bulb-load.

10 Vintage chandeliers

Even classics can be given a custom feel. Think diamond-shaped chandeliers that throw your guests straight back to the Gatsby era. We love to suspend these chandeliers from a floating floral plank, rescuing them from the ceiling and restoring them to an atmospheric level. Eye catching and elegant, they not only look incredible, but become a real talking point for guests.

11 Bespoke installations

Our favourite challenge as a wedding event hire Yorkshire team is to create something entirely new for a couple. Unlike most hire vendors, we don’t simply offer a range of off-the-peg options that you have to try to fit to your ideas and space. Because that would mean compromise, and who wants to do that on the day of their dreams? Instead, we specialise in bespoke installations. We put your vision into lights – and we can even style it with the perfect decor and props to complement your vision too.
