AMBIENT EVENT LIGHTING HIRE
Trilogy Audio offers temporary lighting installations under the name Trilogy Lighting. See the Trilogy Lighting website (coming soon) for comprehensive details and photos of our work.
Trilogy Audio offers an every-expanding range of ambient lighting for indoors and outdoors. Our technicians come to your venue to setup the lighting before your event and collect the following morning. We’re always looking into new types of lighting, so if you have any ideas or concepts, send us a description or picture and we’ll look into it.
LED WALL UPLIGHTING
Using LED parcans, we place lights around the venue on the floor, shining up the walls in a V-shape. This creates a warmth (or coolness, depending on colour select) to your venue and adds to the overall ambience. It’s also an easy way to dress your walls if you’re not using draping, and looks great on draping too. As lights are LED, we can choose any colour you want and set lights to that colour. Generally, only one colour is used on all lights, although mixing two similar or complimentary colours can also be attractive. If you’re wanting to create movement or change the colour of the lights during the night, we can set the ambient lights up on a DMX control desk, which allows a controller to change colour, or have them set to a constantly shifting range of colours. Our base package for ambient wall uplighting is 6 lights. Depending on how effective you want the room to look, we can offer 12, 18, 24 or more. We’ve supplied 36 lights on several occasions for clients who are really looking for an all-out effect to remember.
Using waterproof cabling, we have developed naked bulb string lights, also known as Cafe String Lights, Bistro String Lights or Festoon Lighting, that are suspended over an area, whether it be a garden, dining tables or dance floor. This lighting effect can be used indoors or outdoors. Lights are suspended using 2.5m tall poles and / or anchor points on buildings or trees. Lights are small, golfball incandescent 15w clear or 40w opaque warm white light bulbs and are fully dimmable. As such, they can draw quite a bit of power, so it’s important for them to have their own dedicated circuit on a electrical distribution board. Lights come in lengths of 20m with bulbs every half meter.
Using the same cabling as the Festoon Lights, we use a mix-match of various light incandescent lights bulbs, of various wattages from 20 – 150w, in various different shapes and patterns of filaments, this mix of lights can add to a shabby-chic, antique or vintage style event. Bulbs are largely imported from around the world and are very unique and a pleasure to look at and admire.
FAIRY LIGHT STRINGS
These magical little lights create a very delicate and romantic feel to most events. Used frequently for weddings, they twinkle in the background and look great in photos. Our fairy lights are all suitable for use indoor and outdoor as they’re fully waterproof. We have two styles available which both come in 12m lengths: a warm white fairy light which is totally static, and a cool white fairy light with a sparkle. The sparkle strings have a few lights along the length of the string which sparkle on and off at different speeds, creating that wonderful star-like twinkle. Fairy lights are available to be draped down walls, across ceilings in a swag/zigzag or spoke style, wrapped around trees or as a canopy above an outdoor patio.
FAIRY LIGHT CURTAINS
Create a statement with a wall full of fairy lights, or a fairy light curtain acting as a divider. Our fairy light curtains are warm white LED lights, are 2m wide and connectable into longer lengths. They are 3m tall and suitable for suspending on any wall of at least 2m in height (its quite pretty having the end of the curtain drag on the floor). Use these for draping the wall behind a bridal table, or acting as a room partitioner to make a large room smaller.
Make use of our LED balls or LED orbs (which are made from a high quality plastic LED furniture manufacturer) to light up indoor or outdoor spaces with a beautiful glow. Waterproof, remote controlled and battery operated, these are highly versatile lighting decor items available for hire. The LED orbs can float on water, are waterproof for use outdoors even in the rain, use LED lights that can be set to one of 16 colours by remote or set to colour change, are run on rechargeable lithium batteries so are environmentally friendly lighting options too.
Chinese Lanterns are a timeless decor prop that are still popular for weddings and parties. Available in clean white for weddings, they are also available in red, black, pink, purple, blue, orange, green, brown and yellow, for fun, festive parties and functions. Available in sizes as vast as 10cm - 60cm, they are mostly available in 30cm, 40cm and 50cm sizes. We supply Chinese Lanterns either just as decor without lighting, with single floralyte battery LED lights, 10-LED discs in a variety of colours, or attached to a string of fairy lights, with bespoke light bulb wiring or on a festoon lighting cable, for various ways of lighting them up.
Select from our expanding range of new lanterns suitable for function table decor, lighting of paths, lighting around pools, hanging from trees and many other uses. We supply our lanterns empty or can supply pillar candles or tea-light candles, or safer and eco-friendly options of LED pillar candles with flicker or LED tea-light candles with flicker.
PAPER BAG LANTERNS
Our paper bag lanterns are supplied either plain or with die-cut patterns of hearts or stars. We also supply sand for weighing down the bags as well as LED tea light candles. These bags are particularly effective in lighting up long paths where you may need 50 or 100 lanterns to be properly effective.
CENTREPIECE LED SUBMERSIBLE UPLIGHTERS
Battery operated, submersible and includes remote control with 16 colour options including colour mixing. These small discs are great to pop in a vase with flowers and water to highlight and uplight your flower arrangements, or under a vase, glass candelabra, or in a mirror box.
SOLAR GLASS JARS
Dot these eco-friendly jars around an outdoor area to give some very subtle lighting, or fill them with flowers, coloured water, gel, or other small trinket to use as table decor and a replacement for candles.
Using high-powered LED floodlights, parcans and spotlights, Trilogy Audio can set up lighting outdoors to show off vineyards, trees, gardens and lawns. Recommended to be set to a standard warm white colour and / or green, they can also be preset to different colours if required. Lighting trees for events and lighting vineyards in the distance, can create an incredible sense of depth and space, and ensures you can enjoy the beauty surrounding your function venue well into the night.
Using a custom-cut metal gobo, we can display your company logo or bridal couple’s names or initials on walls, ceiling or floor in a variety of colours.
