About DIY-Uplighting

DIY Uplighting is part of SB Lite, a specialist lighting company founded in 2011. Noticing a gap in the market for a simple, easy to use uplighter, we set out to design our own. By removing all the complicated features found on modern uplighters we were able to create a budget friendly, easy to use option. Our uplighter is perfect to transform the decor of any venue, event or wedding.


Quick & Simple

The remote controls all of the lights and you can chnage the colour via a touch of the remote. All you need to do is turn the uplighter on and put them where they need to be.
No running cables or complicated instructions


Available Nationwide

Our packages are sent out via courier to an address to suit you, then after your event you simply drop them off at your local drop-off point.

How it Works

4 Simple Steps


Step 1 - Book

The first step is to choose the package you require, confirm your date and book it with us. Once you've submitted your online booking we will contact you and confirm your date is available.
The online booking form will tell you when the lights will be delivered and when they need to be returned. We also have the option for the lights to be delivered earlier or on a pre-12 morning delivery.


Step 2 - Delivery

The lights will be sent out via courier. Each box contains 10 lights. These can be sent to you or direct to your venue. We use DPD to deliver the lights and they should send you a text with a 1 hour window on the day of your delivery.

Use them

Step 3 - Setup

Set them up in your venue, as these are battery powered they are very quick and simple to use. Simply take them out of the case, turn them on and place them where you want to uplight. Use the remote control to set your colour.

Step 4 - Return

After your event, place everything back in the box with the origonal packaging and follow the instructions to return everything to us. You can drop off at your local drop-off point or have the lights directly collected*. When we receive your lights back we will check everything and return your security deposit.

* Additional charge for a collection direct from yourself.
