Unique Lighting Ideas for Your Wedding

We’re all about the finer details when it comes to wedding planning – the cake, the flowers, table centrepieces, even the style of confetti! But what about the lighting? Lighting is one of the most important décor elements in your wedding. From bulbs to style of candle, lighting creates the perfect ambience for your ceremony, breakfast and reception and it’s important that each couple gets it right. To help you out, the Wedding Team at Delamere Manor have pulled together a list of unique lighting ideas that will make your wedding day shine even brighter… 

Hanging Glass Orbs

If you’re opting for a woodland wedding style, decorate your ceremony and reception with hanging orbs filled with mini votive candles to set the scene. To expand on the woodland theme, fill a few orbs with herbs and wildflowers too.


Tall candelabras are not only great for lighting, but they add height for your table setting too! Available in a range of colours and contrasting candles, make sure you select a colour which compliments your overall wedding theme. 

Light-up Letters

Check out our trusted partner Love Lights The Way for a whole range of lighting inspiration to hire from popular Mr & Mrs giant light up letters to neon backdrops to inject some personality and fun into your big day.


Perfect for an open-air dinner or to line-up the dancefloor, lit lanterns create the perfect lighting for the outdoors making your wedding celebration a romantic affair. 

Ceiling of fairy lights

Create the illusion of a starry sky and make a ceiling of fairy lights. Ideal for the wedding breakfast or reception, the more lights you include, the more magical your celebrations will become. Remember: fairy lights look great in the daylight too. At Delamere Manor our Courtyard is perfect for ceremonies and receptions and features a beautiful canopy roof adorned with twinkling fairy lights as standard! And what’s more the roof opens so if the British weather is on your side you can bring the outside in – and also close it at a moment’s notice should you need to. Open or closed doesn’t affect the fairy lit canopy.


Disco balls are the latest wedding décor trend, and we absolutely love them! Bring some cool, 70s glamour to your wedding and add a few to your evening celebrations. A hanging installation will not only embellish the room, but it creates gorgeous disco light too. Opt for different sizes and relish in the beautiful, metallic mirror-effect these magnificent decorations can create. At Delamere Manor our couples and guests have exclusive use of their own nightclub – once home to Gary Barlow’s recording studio! – complete with its very own contemporary disco ball!
