Our Lantern Services

  • Our Lantern Services

Our team of paper lantern specialists can guide you step by step to creating a stunning display at your wedding or event advising you on the sizes and numbers needed to suit your theme, venue and colour scheme.

We have two options to suit your creativity, budget and location.

DIY - purchase the lanterns and hang them yourselves with the help of family and friends. We will help you work out the numbers and sizes needed and also guide you through the process of hanging the lanterns in your venue. We’ll even draw you up a colour coded plan to follow on the day!

The average quantity used to create a paper lantern canopy in a marquee varies between 60 and 100 lanterns depending on the size of the marquee. Most tend to use a combination of sizes with 5 or 6 being used for a Mad Hatter’s theme with just 2 or 3 to create a sophisticated central design. We have a wide variety of sizes to suit all types of marquees and purpose designed clips to suspend each lantern individually. 

Our lanterns aren’t just for use in marquees though – they can be hung in a number of ways in rustic barns with exposed beams offering moderate and full coverings, or why not dot them in the trees around your wedding venue’s gardens.

Professional installation – we have lantern installation teams around the country who will come to your venue with lanterns, hanging accessories, illumination and equipment to hang your lanterns creating a truly stunning and unique design.

If you are in the Sussex, Kent or Surrey area why not make an appointment to meet with one of our team who can talk to you in person about your big day and show the different colours and sizes we have available. 

Professional installations can take place through the working day, of an evening or at weekends and we offer full set up and take down, or the option for you to take down your lanterns after your big day or event. 

If you would like a quote for dressing your venue for either option email contact@hanginglanterns.co.uk and have a browse at our Wedding Installation images for inspiration.
