We’ll help take the hassle out of your special day…

Have you ever walked into a room and just gasped with amazement at something – maybe a view through a window, a painting on the wall or a magnificent table all set for dinner?

Our aim at Socialights is to create a beautiful lighting display, one that will also cause an effective gasp as you and your guests enter the room. 

Everyone knows that lighting can make or break the atmosphere in a room. After all, who would want their wedding party to be held with just old-fashioned strip lights overhead!?  When thinking about the romance of a wedding, or the celebrations of an awards ceremony or fund-raising ball, most people imagine twinkling lights and sparkling back-cloths or whimsical lanterns overhead. Lights add that extra something that makes all the difference.

And then you think about how to create that atmosphere?! Of course, there are lots of DIY sets of lights available – but fitting them safely, often at height, can be problematic. Bear in mind that you may only have a limited time on the morning of your wedding, and will you have all the necessary tools; hooks, ladders, string, cable ties, harnesses etc? There will also be other suppliers also in the same space, setting tables and glassware, florists, the band setting up or dance floor being laid– and everyone potentially working in the same area that you need to get to.

Here at Socialights, our mission is to take all the hassle and stress out for our couples and venue hosts. We will arrange to set up as early as possible, usually before any other suppliers and almost always before the couples arrive at the venue. When you’re moving big ladders in excess of 50 times for an installation, along with many strands of fairy lights and all the accompanying safety and securing equipment, it’s easy to see why customers and venue hosts are grateful not to be doing it themselves. All you need to do is turn up and gasp!
