Drapes & Backdrops for London & South East Weddings & Events

Some couples worry about how to create the perfect ambience and feel throughout their wedding venue. Whether dreaming of a beautiful room for the wedding breakfast or planning an evening reception to wow guests from the moment they step foot in the place, wedding drapes and backdrops complete the look of any room. Every venue is different and so are our clients’ visions for the space, so we always offer bespoke services.

Some of the most popular drapes hired include white pleated drapes, marquee style drapes, star cloths, rippled drapes, velour drapes and fairy light curtains. Our most popular product – white wall drapes – are made from a thicker fabric which is ‘true white’ in colour, unlike many other materials commonly used within our industry. White is the colour of most wedding drapes, but we also stock other colours to suit different tastes and needs.

Ceiling Drapes

Ceiling drapes are great for creating a more intimate, romantic setting or for adding that extra special touch to a room. We have ceiling drapes in a variety of different colours and styles, and you can customise the look to the venue needs.

Add warm or white fairy lights for an additional touch of magic with a matching backdrop if this suits the overall design of the space.

Top Table Backdrop

Our bespoke backdrops create the perfect focal point for your wedding. With the top table always a key focus at any event, a backdrop can make a huge difference to its appearance despite being a relatively low cost item.

Our venue stylists will bring your vision to life whether looking for a starlight backdrop, uplit backdrop or a bespoke style designed especially for you.

Hire Our Top Table Backdrops


Transform a bland room into something spectacular with black or white starcloths. The results are instant whether choosing for a stage backdrop, head table backdrop or creating a feature wall behind your wedding DJ or band.

You can decide to cover one wall or even an entire room with a selection of standard sizes and custom lengths available.

Up Lighting Hire

Otherwise known as ‘mood lighting’, up lighting is our most popular enhancement of all time, creating an ambience in a venue using light which is extremely pleasing to the eye. Create the mood you want, from romantic and chilled to a party atmosphere which encourages people to come to the dancefloor. Coloured lighting can match your colour scheme, venue style or even highlight a particular feature in the room.

Static lights are most commonly chosen, but settings can be adjusted so that lights change colour or flash. Up lighter options include powered and battery operated fittings, as well as the provision of LED par cans or 1m LED bar lights.

Order Up Lighting Hire

We’re able to work with any fabric straight from the roll, and all draping products are fire retardant, coming with an official certification. We have a flexible approach, so if your venue has no attachment points, we have a pipe and base system which means we can erect our drapes from almost anywhere.
