When we first met Tansy, a week after our inception as a company, we knew it would be the start of a fabulous business relationship.  Tansy has very kindly taken the time to write us a blog on fabulous event transformations.

Wedding Lighting 

Here at Hipswing lighting is what we love, you can transform any room with the use of lighting, not just to light up walls but to highlight features, light up the wedding cake, accentuate the room, pin spot the centre piece and most of all can create fabulous strobing atmospheres with our intelligent moving head lighting. We can also colour match your wedding scheme as best as possible highlighting the walls in your chosen colour with our fabulous uplighters and ceiling wash.

We have worked at a lot of the best Cheshire hotels, venues and functions suites providing lighting so we already have an idea of what works well and where. However we do love to come and see new venues and help design and create our customers vision using lighting. You can combine our lighting with our fabulous dance floors, back drops, mirror balls, paper lanterns, fairy lights, festoon lights and entertainments. We are highly recommended by many hotels across the North West for not just our lighting but for dance floors and entertainments.

Outdoor Lighting 

It’s not just inside lighting that we can provide we have a whole range of outdoor lighting available from coloured uplighters to strings of festoon and fairy lighting. Depending on the style you would like to go for we can advise what might work best to suit your Wedding, Party or Event. As well as lighting up some of the fabulous venues we can also provide marquee lighting and safety lighting when necessary.

We have four different styles of Dance Floor for our customers to chose from .. 

White LED

Pure White 

Black LED

Black and White Chequered 

We just love our sparkly dance floors for all kinds of weddings, events, functions and corporate parties, however if sparkle is not your style we can provide either a pure white dance floor or a black and white chequered floor with no lights. Depending on your venue our technicians can help to recommend which size dance floor would suit and fit the room best. We can come during your change around time and lay the floor, this normally takes between 30 – 60 mins depending on the access to your function suite. 

Sparkly Dance Floor Hire Cheshire

We work across Cheshire supplying our floors to many different wedding venues, marquees and village halls, nowhere is too big or too small for our floors ranging in sizes from 10ft x 10ft – 20ft x 20ft. We can sometimes provide larger floors even than these – if you have a bespoke size please let us know and we will see what we can do.
