Martin Radmall says….



“At Carta Projects / Starlight Wedding Hire, we take a bare or static Wedding venue canvas and add stunning vibrant colours, subtle starlight, funky festoons and more.”


“We own and utilise only the most up to date and economical LED products available on the market.”


“These not only give fantastic array of colours and effects, but also have great ‘eco’ credentials and are Low Powered.”


You the client can choose ANY colour to suit your colour scheme, and  have the ability to request any changes at the click of a button.



Below is some advice on the lighting effects :-



“Starlight is a big hitter in the wedding world,  connectable Fairy lights, which are low voltage can give the visual impression of never-ending stars.”


“Alternatively these can be wrapped around trees, turned into starlight canopies or dressing the posts in Yurts or Tipis.”


“LED Festoon light strands are also a popular exterior light source, with either a white or solid colour scheme, or a cosmopolitan colour mix.”


“Consider the use of  Shepherd crooks so the Festoons can lead the way into your venue, tipi or marquee.”


Outdoor (architectural) lighting hire is also a relatively cheap way to enhance the already stunning features of your venue in a plethora of colour.”


“Buildings, Water features, trees, architectural features all look stunning after night fall, when lit in glorious LED light.”


Venue Uplighting (interior)  transforms the bare walls of marquees, reception rooms, yurts & tipis. the small and discreet LED light units certainly pack a punch.”


“Add a Starlight white Dance-floor and wow what a centrepiece, backed with a white starlit, twinkle backdrop, its a stunning visual feast for your First Dance.”


“Hundreds of LEDs  can also twinkle to give the awesome effect of dancing in the stars…”


“For something COMPLETELY different in your reception what about a funky LED Circle Bar– the most stunning centre piece or entrance eye-catcher imaginable..”










Thank you so much to Martin for sharing his advice on knowledge on what sorts of lighting can benefit each part of your Event.


Its lovely to see a Venue enhanced in colour and all twinkly, it adds to the romantacism and can lift a blank canvas to something  quite special.
