Wedding Lighting at Bix Manor

Bix Manor is a stunning 17th century brick & flint barn in Oxfordshire. The beams in the barn are perfect for suspending a lighting display overhead which can be augmented with LED uplighting around the walls.

Suitable lighting options include fairy lights, festoons, chandeliers, Edison bulbs and uplighting.

Fairy Lights

Bix Manor fairy lights A large canopy of dimmable, warm white fairy lights suspended from the beams makes a spectacular feature in the day and a sparkly backdrop to the evening's entertainment.

The barn has a large fan, dividing curtains and several powerful gas heaters on the beams, so we designed a canopy specifically to work with these features to ensure that their use is not restricted while the canopy is in place.

The fairy lights are very bright and are connected to easy-to-use dimmers so that the light level can be turned down as required in the evening.

Festoon Lights

Bix Manor festoon lights Festoons are a great alternative to fairy lights, with a series of larger bulbs along their length.

They give a warm, sophisticated glow during the wedding breakfast and can be dimmed later in the day to provide the perfect light level for the evening.

At Bix Manor festoons work best installed in a crossed strands design, where the lights are swagged from point to point to create a series of crosses between the beams.


Chandelier Chandeliers hanging from the beams make a stunning feature and provide a gorgeous, flattering light.

Particularly well suited to Bix Manor are our tiered crystal, 15-arm crystal (shown here), or white/ivory chandeliers.

For the full range of options, please see our main chandelier page here.

Edison Bulbs

Edison bulbs An array of gorgeous bare filament bulbs hanging from the beams.

The bulbs come in mixed sizes, shapes and filament styles and are hung at randomly varying heights to create a truly unique display. The bulbs are of course fully dimmable and give a lovely warm, golden light.


Bix Manor uplighting LED uplighters are a flexible way to fill in light around the edges of the barn, add touches of colour, or both. In the evening they can optionally be made to change through a synchronised sequence of colours to complement band or DJ lighting.

Our uplighters can be supplied with an easy-to-use controller which enables you to choose different settings for the different parts of the day, transforming the mood of the room at the touch of a button.

For example you could choose:

  • Day : a sophisticated gold to complement fairy lights and create an intimate atmosphere for dining.
  • Early evening / first dance : a colour of choice to work with the wedding colour scheme.
  • Dancing : gradual colour changing for a full-room effect.
