Carousel Lights, makers of fabulous, fairground-inspired vintage light decorations, has just launched a brand new design and Wedding Ideas readers are the first to see it!

We can exclusively reveal that Dodgem is the latest design from the lighting experts. In order to stay true to the roots of the classic Dodgem ride, this style of light has neon lighting that is mounted onto a highly polished steel base.

This light makes a bold statement and is the brightest, brashest and arguably the most eye-catching in the entire Carousel Lights range. We think it’s the perfect wow factor for any vintage-style wedding and an ideal backdrop for retro photographs!


The design of the Dodgem style is not only unique from the other style of lights in the fact that it employs neon, but also in the degree of customisation that’s possible. As with all other styles, Dodgem lights can be bought in a range of off-the-shelf sizes (500mm high or 1m high) and styles (alphabet and numerical characters as well as Heart, Star and Arrow) but there’s something even more fascinating about dodgem – Carousel Lights can shape the neon to any style you like making it fully customisable if you have a particular theme in mind.

“Perhaps you want to write the words MARRY ME in you own hand-writing in neon, or maybe you’ve been sent a very special letter that you’d now like to recreate part of in neon?” says Ben Reynolds, Co-Founder of Carousel Lights. “We can create pieces that ensure special memories live on in a unique eye-catching form.”


The lights are perfectly suited to be used as dramatic wall-mounted features during the big day and can be used afterwards as a striking addition to your home.
