Elegant Design is our Passion

South West Letter Lights is both owned and managed by Vicki and Giles Boardman who purchased the business in 2016.

The company was originally established in 2014 by award-winning wedding creatives Richard and Alan Godefroy, these letter lights are one of the most popular wedding enhancements to date.

 

Original credit for the idea and building up South West Letter Lights goes to Richard and Alan Godefroy.  Both Alan and Richard have been involved with supplying services to the wedding industry for a decade now and spotted the early trend of providing lit letters to weddings.  As award winning creatives Alan and Richard did a fantastic job of building the business up around a quality product and un-rivalled service for their wedding clients. 

Mike Francis was their original carpenter and skillfully helped them build a brand based around the finest quality of wood work.  Mike is still a very capable carpenter and does undertake private work so if you have a project you need help with please get in touch and we’ll connect you.

We remain close family friends of the Godefroy’s and continue to work closely in partnership with them to this day.

 

 

Giles and Vicky as the current owners are passionate about Letter Lights and it has been a natural progression for them as Giles has 20 years experience in the lighting industry.  But they are both passionate about the wedding industry and have enjoyed seeing the business grow over the years into a successful letter lights hire company.

Our aim as a small family run company is to expand South West Letter Lights into a wedding supply company with a wider product range while never impacting on the quality of our service.

 

 

With a workshop based in Plymouth, Devon every letter light is created with care by KM Contracts in Plympton, Devon.  They  are experienced carpenters and we make the best quality letters on the market.  South West Letter Lights now has over 60 letter combinations available for hire!

Richard was the initial brainwave behind South West Letter Lights. He developed the idea to work alongside his existing award wining business ‘The Swing Kings’. Richard continues to provide wedding entertainment and we can vouch for him personally as he sung at our own wedding. Richard only parted company with South West Letter Lights as his own company was all consuming.
