Standard Uplighters

Hire for £10 per uplighter

LED uplighting hire for weddings in Manchester and the Northwest

Our standard LED uplighters are our most versatile uplighting units that we have available for hire. They are the type that we use more than our battery powered uplighters and our warm white uplighters because they produce most colours that we are asked for (with the exception of warm whites, yellows and oranges – which is why we have the warm white option).

Our uplighting at The Midland Hotel in Manchester (Trafford Suite)

The photo above shows an event where the theme was sea and sky. It was actually an event run by a well known holiday company. As you can see they hired turquoise chairs (from another supplier) and had matching table decorations. Our job was to turn the space from a plain white dining room to a sea/sky themed paradise. We did this by having uplighters in blue and cyan alternately throughout the whole room.


  • RGB colour mixing (Red, Green and Blue)
  • 5x 3-watt tri-colour LEDs (5 watts per colour)
  • Beam angle: 40 degrees

Choosing the right uplighters

At TakeAway Disco we have 3 types of uplighter available for hire. The standard uplighters described on this page will be the type that most people will want to hire, but there are limitations.

If you are planning to use uplighting in a room with few plug sockets (or even no plug sockets) then our battery operated uplighters might suit you better. And don’t forget, you can always mix and match, so you could use mostly the standard mains powered lights and for any difficult areas you could use the battery versions instead.

If you are hiring a venue where there is either no lighting, or only very bright white “office” type lighting then our warm white uplighters create a much more inviting environment.
