Beautiful set up for my wedding. The venue looked stunning and so many positive comments from guests. Friendly staff. Only flaws were communication- took a while to hear a response, and website is a little tricky to navigate. Neither of these points impacted my big day but improvements would make the service flawless

Wedding Venue Lighting went the extra mile to fit our backdrops on the weekend of the Tour De France when the roads were closed, they fitted our curtains in the middle of the night so as not to let us down! What service!!!!!

Absolutely cannot fault wedding venue lighting for everything they did to make our wedding amazing! From the beautiful starlight backdrop for our vows to all the uplighting, fab Mr and Mrs letters and stunning dance floor it was all incredible and perfectly placed! Fab service and so easy from start to finish

To Matt

A little note to say a hugh thankyou for organising and arranging our bespoke gobo projection for our wedding on 16 September.

It was amazing and is something we have as as a keep sake forever.


Stress free service

Hi Matt,

Just wanted to say thank you for our backdrop and our custom gobo.


Wedding Venue Lighting supplied our dance floor and back drop at our wedding which looked stunning. Guests loved the sparkly dance floor particularly and many commented on it. It was certainly well used. We dealt with Matt who was very organised and replied to emails in a timely manner. He did a great job and could not have asked for a better service! Thank you

I was extremely happy to use Wedding Venue Lighting I’d decided to do all the wedding planning myself and it was very easy to work with them to discuss possibilities, dates times and products. Would happily recommend them to anyone considering for the planning of their event. Good communications, prices, products and ultimately timely set up and take away

Really good guys, excellent service especially at last minute (we left it to the last minute) and had a panic on but Matt and the guys were great

The dance floor was just perfect for our wedding - superb service - would recommend their services!

Hi Matt!!

Just wanted to say thank u for the festoon lighting! It looked amazing!!!
Great work!

Thank u so much

The service Wedding Venue Lighting provided us was second to none. Everything was ready when it needed to be and at no point was there ever any stress involved. The lighting itself was superb and added to the fantastic day. I cannot recommend them enough!

We wanted to add some sparkle to our wedding day so was so happy to see Matt at Wedding Venue Lighting had a fairy lit wedding arch and a star lit dance floor. It was everything we were looking for. So we made contact and the smooth and easy process ran from there to the wedding. Matt was helpful and quick to reply to emails. I couldn’t recommend Wedding Venue Lighting services highly enough. Thank you for adding the sparkle to our wedding.

It was great service from initial enquiry to the provision of the dance floor and lighting. Kept in touch throughout and coordinated with venue for installation, stress free for us and the dance floor and lighting were fantastic.

Wedding venue lighting were brilliant every step of the way. From the initial consultation right through to ensuring my brother in law knew how to operate the equipment we hired the service was second to none. We were very pleased with the equipment supplied and the price was very reasonable, they are a true asset to the industry and deserve all the success in the future

Excellent service and products. The giant light up love letters made such an incredible impact at the entrance to the hall, and provided everyone with a great photo opportunity. Some of our favourite photos are with these as the back drop

The lighting at my wedding was amazing, not only did it add the glitter to my wedding, but the skilfully placing of the lighting created not only a beautiful reflection but also fit perfectly with the theme of the wedding and the DJ's stage lighting.

Matt and the team were extremely helpful, having approached him with my vision rather than asking for exacts he took what I was asking for and created exactly what I was hoping for on the day. We had the illuminated letters (T&N) as well as coloured up-lighters for the room, he was keen to ensure the effect was his priority and not just me spending as much money as possible with them, so much so that he requested a lower number of up-lighters due to room size etc. It was perfect

This company were brilliant. They came exactly when they said they would, dressed the room beautifully, they were prompt and professional and nothing was too much trouble. All the guests commented on the effect they had created.”

Excellent service and good value for money. I would definitely recommend this company to friends and family.

They went above and beyond, helped hang all my extra decorations for free. Put extra lighting down the staircases and outside. I could not recommend enough. Came a day early to help me. Deserve an award

Very straightforward no hassle called booked n delivered no stress for me or worrying responded to my emails within 24 hours, very professional

Most amazing dance floor and I’m so glad they recommended black as it make the venue look amazing

Absolutely amazing LOVE sign which made our venue look amazing! They were there when they said they would be, value for money, great communication throughout and collected he next morning without any hassle at all.

They made my wedding truly amazing and made the room look breathtakingly beautiful!

What an amazing touch for a special day they set it up perfectly thank you

Matt and the team at venue lighting did an amazing job in helping to make our wedding day amazing. They were easy to deal with and helpful with their advise and it made the whole process really easy. We were delighted with the lighting and the twilight backdrop and it truly made the room look amazing. They also provided our aisle runner at a very reduced price. The total cost was very reasonable and overall we were very happy with the end result!!!! :)

There was no time to move the backlit curtain we had through the day to the dance floor for the night time do, so Wedding Venue Lighting put another one there for us free of charge. Couldn't be happier with the service.

We had a true fairy tale wedding thanks to Matt and his team. The lights were magical and created the perfect atmosphere from day to night. We would have no problem in recommending this service to others. Thank you very much for all your hard work and helping make our day so special.

Choosing Wedding Venue Lighting as our main supplier of or lighting, decor and so much more, turned out to be the best decision we made during the entire planning of our wedding. The modern LED dance floor stood out as simply amazing. The selfie photo mirror took high quality photos and was such a unique attraction for our guests, they simply couldn’t get enough of it! All of the work was carried out to the highest standard and all of the staff truly went the extra mile to make our day perfect

I was thrilled with the service and value for money of wedding venue lighting; they were really simple and straightforward to deal with them which is a god send when you are juggling what feels like 1000s of suppliers and ideas. The lighting was stunning! Totally transformed our venue. We were amazed by how seamless the service was

We knew we wanted a fairy light canopy and Wedding Venue Lighting were by far the cheapest and the customer service was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone, did a brilliant job we had many compliments on the lights.

Thank you for your brilliant service with the dance floor and Mr and Mrs , you were in and out without a hitch and we didn't even get to see you . I would certainly recommend your company to anyone. Thanks again

Fantastic fairy light canopy! Finished the room off perfectly and looked stunning

Matt and his team are the most professional company I have dealt with while organising my wedding. His suggestions and advice were spot on! The dance floor and backdrop plus the up lighters in my venue made the room look beyond amazing, every guest said it was the best wedding they have been to and the dance floor was full all night. Matt even came to collect it at 2 am in the morning so the venue could be ready for 8am the next day to start setting up for lunch.

Matt and the team at wedding venue lighting were absolutely amazing. Each to reach and get hold off, answered all my questions and queries with ease up to the run up of our big day. Stayed in contact with us about the equipment we hired, reassured us during the time from booking to our wedding. The love letters and uplights really made a difference to our reception. It made it pop, every guest complimented on them, they’re really amazing. Can’t compliment them enough

Friendly and efficient service. Booked at quite late notice but wasn’t a problem. Really happy with the end effect

We had no problems whatsoever and would definitely use this company again... not that I plan on getting married again! Thank you to Matt and the team, you made our day extra special x

Excellent service. Polite, professional and efficient both via email and in person. They were so good that we barely noticed them arrive or return to pick up the items at the end of the night. Perfect backdrop for our wedding - transformed a dull and expressionless room into a magical wedding venue full of heart and warmth. We would definitely recommend them and hope that you award them with top billing! They deserve it

Very professional reliable, amazing photos and customer service

They provided a superb service, and took the ease out of sorting out venue lighting.

I first came across Wedding Venue Lighting at an open day at Waterton Park Hotel where I saw the starlight dance floor all set up. The staff were very friendly and helpful. When emailing Wedding Venue Lighting, they were very efficient in responding to me therefore making the booking process simple and stress free, something that every bride will be grateful of. The dance floor was a hit with so many of our guests

Wedding Venue Lighting supplied our dance floor and back drop at our wedding which looked stunning. Guests loved the sparkly dance floor particularly and many commented on it.

All communications along the way made Wedding Venue Lighting a company I would recommend to any bride to be and anyone wanting an amazing party. I will be using them again.

My husband and I were over the moon with the lighting and decorations that wedding venue lighting provided. They set up quickly however they didn’t compromise on the quality. Everyone mentioned how lovely the room had been decorated. They listened to what we wanted and was able to offer friendly and knowledgable advice.

The speed of communication was fantastic, the professional manner was superb and the quality of the work was praised by many of our guests! 10/10!!!!

Amazing team that were prepared to go above and beyond when it came to the small details of our wedding! The quality of the starlight backdrop was amazing and so many of our guests commented how special it made the venue feel.

When booking our wedding venue i knew that I wanted some kind of lighting. I really liked the LOVE letters. I was recommended by a family friend to get in touch with Wedding Venue Lighting. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They suggested the Mr & Mrs lights. I then looked on their website at these and they were perfect. They lit the whole room and made it look even more beautiful. All of our guests commented how nice they were. Matt and his team kept in touch with me from the day I booked

We booked a flower wall and lighting for our wedding and even though the motorway had been closed he got to us and worked later than expected to make sure everything was in place and it was exactly what we wanted it looked beautiful

Amazing service. We had to change our wedding plans with 3 weeks to go due to the floods in York. Our previous venue didnt require lighting whereas the new one did. The service was second to none, installation was brilliant and the end product was exactly what we wanted. The take down to arranged with the venue leaving us carefree. This could not have gone any smoother AND with such little notice

Fab from start to finish. Great price, Matt offered me help with ideas on what i could do with the space we had. Matt and his team worked exceptionally well with the restricted time, space and access they had to the venue. Very happy bride and groom, made such a difference to the feel of the evening reception

These guys did exactly what we asked and even provided more lights than we had paid for as they had them available and thought it would be nice for us. Delivered exactly on time and installed them with the minimum amount of fuss and then came at 3am to remove them from the venue for a different wedding the next day! Fantastic service all round.

Communication was very easy and the website was easy to navigate and to see what was available & for how much. First phonecall resulted in ensuring Matt knew exactly what we needed and it was all very easy. Emails exchanged to confirm order, easy payment options including bank transfer. Follow up just before the wedding without prompting to let us know all was well and follow up afterwards to thank us for using them & to wish us all the best. Excellent service, would definitely use them again

Matt was a really nice chap, did everything himself, did exactly what we asked and more. An excellent service at an excellent price!

From the off Wedding Venue Lighting were approachable and helpful. All correspondence was received in good time. They were consistently helpful and the dance floor we ordered looked amazing!!

Absolutely beautiful light display for our special day.

Professional, approachable, and would definitely recommend!!

Matt Butcher is thoroughly professional and made our wedding day extra special with his amazing venue dressing. Everything was just as promised, on time and of excellent quality.

We used WVL for our wedding day at Denton Hall in Ilkley, Yorkshire in September 2016. They provided an excellent service both in quality of dance floor and uplighters provided along with the delivery and installation service, delivered ontime and installed in good time to suprise all our guests following the wedding breakfast. They were exactly what we had wished for making our evening function absolutely perfect. A great service with great products, I would certainly recommend them to any future function or event. Thanks WVL, you certainly played your part in making our wedding fantastic.

Matt and his team were absolutely fantastic. The service they provided was amazing, the quality of the dance floor, star light curtain, fame effects and up lighters were top class. We couldn’t recommend you any more and would definitely use again. The communication throughout our planning was also faultless.

Amazing company - do exactly as they say they will and in record time - will recommend to everyone we know

we knew we wanted fairy lights as it sets off the already beautiful room so well the lanterns finished off the look and wedding venue lighting were so helpful and quick at booking it all for us, they were confident with the venue and everything was put up and taken away without us even knowing. all our paperwork was posted to us which was great and if I had any questions they responded straight away, thank you for our perfect day everyone loved the decorations!!!

Very professional with excellent service


Thanks for all your help, patience and reactivity on the day and before hand.

Great service, communication and understanding of our needs!!

The festoon lighting provided by Wedding Venue Lighting was the perfect finishing touch to our wedding reception. They were flexible with the installation time and communicated really well in the lead up to the day. It was a seamless transaction

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to thank you and your team for the professional service that we received both preparing for and during our wedding on 2 April 2016 at Mosborough Hall, Sheffield.

Both my husband and I were very impressed with the quality of the lighting, both the uplighters and the fairy lights, and how it transformed the room. We were also impressed with the white drapes, which were removed with no interruption to our guests after the ceremony, and the white carpet. The communication from you in the lead-up to the wedding was also excellent and put my mind at ease.

We will not hesitate to recommend you to our friends in future.

Thanks again.

Very professional, installed with ease and taken away with care, a good addition to any wedding

Wedding venue lighting are amazing and I would definitely recommend to everyone our wedding day was amazing thank you all for helping us make our wedding so special

Very professional and excellent service!

Matt and his team were very professional from start to finish, from the first phone call, e-mail, meeting us to discuss our requirements, even adjusted things to our taste to actually suggest us to delete a few products which saved us some pennies for our honeymoon. Not a lot of businesses want to do that! Our room was absolutely stunning, all our guests were amazed on how good our room looked even the Banqueting team at the hotel were speechless as were our toastmaster (he had seen the room before!) which was funny to witness! It was stunning, things were changed after our wedding breakfast and this was done discreetly and professionally, cannot thank the team enough, they did a marvellous job and I have the memories and photos to prove what an excellent day we both had :-) Winners, thanks guys!!

Wedding Venue Lighting did a superb job of supplying lighting for our wedding. Our venue was a total blank canvas and the lighting absolutely transformed the venue. They set up, as requested, two days before our wedding at no extra cost and had it all taken down and cleared away very promptly the next day. A first class service at a very reasonable price

They made a hell of a difference to our wedding and Matt and his team were utter professionals throughout. Cannot recommend them highly enough!

Matt was such a professional. His service was fantastic and met all of our timings and made the whole process of decorating the village hall run smoothly. Thank you

We used the Wedding Venue Lighting as it was exactly what we were after. We had planned to buy our own fairy lights and decorate the barn by ourselves as well as add our own Chinese multi-coloured lanterns on it, but we didn’t realise how difficult it would have been to achieve the look we were after without having the tall ladder/equipment. When we saw the lights already installed at a wedding the weekend before ours we had made the decision to use them as it looked fantastic!


Everything about wedding venue lighting was amazing. The customer service was 100% as was everything else, I am already trying to persuade my new husband to do it all over again so I can order even more things from Wedding Venue Lighting. Everything looked brilliant and absolutely everyone at the venue commented on how easy they were to work with and how gorgeous the whole venue looked once they had finished! I can't thank the team enough, I would recommend to anyone.

The up-lighters helped make our venue look the business.

So helpful and looked amazing

I just wanted to leave a testimonial and say thank you for the service we received from your business for our wedding party at Sandburn Hall on 24/03/2016.

The service was great from start to finish. Matt responded straight away to all my emails and provided us with a signed contract, everything was very professional.

Matt contacted our venue prior to our event and all of the lights were in place before we got there. The looked amazing and set the room off perfectly. Many of our guests commented on the lights and will be using them for their wedding parties.

Thank you!

They gave us peace of mind for our wedding day and nothing at all was any trouble for them. Communication was fantastic and the lighting that they provided us on our wedding day was unbelievable. Everybody loved it and said how pretty it looked including ourselves. We are so grateful to them. Highly recommended!

Fabulous company!!!!!
Matt was helpful from first contact to the big day itself!

We were really pleased with the service and the end result from Wedding Venue Lighting. The lighting was installed with great ease and the venue was immediately transformed. Would definitely recommend this service to others. Thank you very much

Our wedding venue, Sandburn Hall, is a stunning building. Wedding Venue Lighting provided the most beautiful decorations to enhance every feature of the room. The fairy lights were positioned to give a delicate sparkle during the day & then an unexpectedly magical effect in the evening. The lanterns were hung expertly in our chosen colours and WVL also hung the bunting I had made myself. They were helpful & courteous at all times & provided a professional service throughout. Highly recommended

They was really helpful and I was really happy with there service. Did everything on the ay they promised. I also changed my mind about something nearly last minute and they made sure it was all changed for me

Matt of wedding venue lighting is fantastic and the dancefloor and lighting provided for my wedding was superb.

Matt was fantastic. They came early and spent hours putting drapes around our reception room to turn it from a golf club into a beautiful wedding room. They even came back before our evening reception to take down a curtain to make it bigger for our evening do

By using the services and products of Wedding Venue lighting, it gave our venue a definite wow factor. It looked absolutely stunning and I was so pleased with how it looked. I was slightly worried if it would look how I envisioned it, but I had nothing to worry about. Thankyou for making our great venue into a fairytale venue.”

Hi Matt

We were really pleased with the star cloth you supplied for our wedding it actually made a huge difference to the room, and an extremely professional service.

We will be defiantly recommending you to all our friends.

Thank you very much.

Matt was very helpful in changing our order when needed and had some useful suggestions for us. The finished product was beyond our expectations and really wowed our guests. They ended up creating a canopy of lanterns over the alter which really enhanced the look of the venue and made the ceremony area stand out. The set up and take down of the products was efficient and friendly. They were excellent and I would highly recommend them to any future couples

Excellent service and friendly people, would recommend this company!

Absolutely fantastic service. Matt and his team were professional, friendly and very easy to work with. The venue looked brilliant, and so many of our guests told us how beautiful it looked. This service was first class, and very reasonably priced.

Matt at wedding venue lighting did a great job with our lights, they really completed the look of the venue and made it look extra special at night. Wedding Venue Lighting were efficient at responding to our queries. Good value for money products compared to others we searched for

Wedding venue lighting supplied us with fairy lights and the light up love heart we left it very last minute to confirm timings with them as we decided we wanted the props to arrive during the meal so it would transfer the room from day to night. Wedding venue lighting rearranged there plans and timings so they could do this for us

Absolutely brilliant service from beginning to end! Very professional, arrived on time and put the lights up with no fuss!

Excellent service and beautiful lights made my wedding a total dream! Highly recommended.

Matt was amazingly helpful peior tothe wedding, arrived on time at the venue to set up and collected the items promptly the next day. The white starlight backdrops and cake table surround turned the venue from a standard conference centre to a wedding venue and the black starlight backdrop and black illuminated dance floor looked amazing and drew many compliments from our guests

Matt and the whole team were really helpful throughout our wedding planning. Nothing was too hard for them and they gave us tons of ideas and inspiration as well as listening to our ideas. On the day of setting up they were so quick and friendly it really took the stress out of everything!

Fantastic help

Seamlessly everything was perfect! We couldn’t have wished for more!

Excellent quality and punctual. When I had a query they were always there to answer. Would use in the future.

We felt quite apprehensive about booking the festoon lights as the room hadn’t had them in before and we were unsure if it’d work- the hall looked amazing. The service was great-they came and set the lights up in the morning and took them down early hours the next day after the party finished. The payment process was easy. The lights really added that final touch to our wedding and really helped to create a cosy atmosphere in such a huge room. I would really recommend the festoon lights!

Wedding Venue Lighting offer the bride & groom a unique range of fabulous wedding venue dressing items; which allows the bride & groom to put a personal touch to their wedding. It also makes it fun & different for guests, gives photographers props & gives wonderful everlasting pictures & memories.

Weddings are one of the most special events in a community’s calendar. Through religious ceremonies, which are then followed by festive receptions, these occasions call for celebrating not only the union of a man and a woman, but also the uniting two families. You and I are eager to attend these events because we share in the happiness and joy of two persons “united in holy matrimony” and of joining together in the name of love.

Once the solemn religious rituals of the wedding have been consummated, the most awaited part of the entire event is the wedding reception. Truly, food and fun would be overflowing in gatherings like receptions, which may be held at the backyard of a house (if the space allows), a hotel, a restaurant or a resort, depending on the preference and options of the couple. It is also during receptions that married couples get to sit together for a dinner for the first time as legally and religiously recognised “husband and wife.”

In preparing for the wedding receptions, the newly-wed couple and other organisers have to make sure that the proper technical facilities are in place to make the environment of the reception more conducive to a joyful celebration. Aside from ensuring that sound systems are working and that seating arrangements are in place, this preparation calls for the use of lighting facilities, which can be provided for by Specialist Wedding Lighting hire services. For a reasonable fee, these firms can provide wedding venue lighting services to couples who wanted to make their reception just as special as the wedding ceremony itself. What could be more fitting than for both guests and the couple alike that they feel special for this day even just by looking at the lights and backdrop placed in a reception place (or room, depending on the choice made by the couple)? With the proper mix of lighting done by lighting experts, guests and even hosts alike not only may feel that they are truly in a wedding reception, but seemingly feel like members of the nobility.
