Personal Experienced Lighting Advice

I will visit your venue preferably in the evening to discuss the many options and combinations and price ranges that may suit your special event. I will bring a wide selection of photographs of lighting displays I have done so that you can see how the different lights, when carefully combined, produce a spectacular, elegant magical vista. All prices include delivery, installation, and removal for an over night hire. Generally, the lights are installed late afternoon and early evening a day or two in advance of your special event at no extra charge unless it is a very busy period, or it becomes clear you are holding more than one event. Extra days of formal use are charged at 20% of the first day's hire for every extra day.

Soft illumination to bring out the MAGIC in your garden. They may be hung from trees, Pergolas, or stands; or strung along a partylight cable. New safety rules mean only low voltage lamps should be used in outdoor lantern displays. Jim Philp has assembled a useful inventory of approved outdoor transformers, extra low voltage lamps, and outdoor power distribution sets that allows safe garden lighting displays. LED tealights can be supplied effectively to illuminate smaller paper lanterns for decorative mass displays. New lantern styles. Rectangular or BeeHive Shaped ground or floor mounting.
