Our signature 4ft light up letters started it all!

Built in 2013 for our very own wedding, our love letters were the first item in our inventory. Over a decade later, we have a huge stock of light up letters and numbers - we even have symbols!

From classic white, to sparkle, to rustic, we can create your surname, a monogram, your wedding hashtag or your favourite word.


Our wedding backdrops and frames are handmade and totally unique. All of our backdrops and frames are to hire on their own, dressed with signs, balloons or florals.

"We loved our Light Up Surname for our wedding, it was an extra detail to dress the venue and obviously very personal.
The Word Is Love are great - once booked and paid they get the job done themselves so there is nothing for you to worry about! I would definitely recommend them if you’re considering having any “Light Ups”
Thank you!"
