About the company
Lightning delivers show-stopping creative design and seamless technical production, working on a wide variety of events from weddings and birthday parties, to charity fundraisers, brand activations and corporate events. Lightning can take care of all design & styling, sound & lighting as well as building or sourcing bespoke bars, structures and furniture.
We have a highly personable team who will guarantee that all elements of the planning and execution of the event are just as enjoyable as the party itself! Our collective of highly skilled designers, technicians and production managers ensures that your party will be produced to the highest standard and the creativity will be second to none.
From constructing a candlelit pergola in Tuscany, to designing and producing an ethereal winter garden marquee to weddings at Claridges, Lightning can produce all manner of events across London, the UK and abroad.
We have experience doing events outside the UK.
Over the last year we have heavily reduced our use of single-use plastic. We use energy-saving light bulbs wherever possible, unless of course this compromises the effect of the lighting. When we hire props or furniture from suppliers within the greater London area we endeavour to pick up and collect so we are avoiding multiple lorries transporting to and from the venue. We have an established recycling scheme at the warehouse and we also donate old props and design structures to local schools for theatre use. On a smaller scale, all staff and crew are encouraged to use reusable coffee cups and water bottles when working on site and travelling to and from site. We have a zero policy on plastic cups at the office.
"We have worked with Lightning Events on a number of events across both Conde Nast Traveller and Brides magazine. The team are a delight to work with and approach each new project with a professional, personable and creative approach. We can relax knowing that the production aspect of the event is completely taken care of and that no detail is missed. I would highly recommend them!"Lucy Farrell, Conde Nast
"I just want to thank you so much for everything you did and created that made the real wow factors for the wedding! It was an epic party and everyone loved it! The lightning inside and outside was perfection and your club furniture really made the nightclub. Please pass on our thanks to your charming crew - as always, it's great fun when working with the Lightning boys. "Hamish Sherlock, Sherlock Parties
