Cranage Hall Weddings

•November 18, 2017 • Comments Off on Cranage Hall Weddings

Congratulations to Georgie and Kim on their wedding day, and being able to create something special for them is what Woodyatt Warner venue dressers strive to do for every wedding.

Both the ceremony and wedding breakfast took place in the recently refurbished Baird Suite at Cranage Hall, in Holmes Chapel. An area renowned for its stunning Cheshire countryside and affluent surroundings. A 5 minute drive from Knutsford and close to all the major road links of the M6, M56 and more importantly, Manchester International Airport, this venue is one of the few to offer peace and tranquillity with an abundance of options available to suit all your guests and with a huge amount of accommodation so nobody has to go far at the end of the night.

Georgie and Kim were looking for an elegant simple style, to work with their colour scheme of mainly white and silver, with touches of greenery to provide that natural look. The centrepieces were the main focus of the room, so needed to have the WOW factor. To achieve this, Woodyatt Warner got to work on creating some beautiful floral displays using a wide range of flowers and foliage from hydrangeas, peonies, roses and gypsophila, all of which were packed into a huge display with a variety of greenery to compliment the flowers.

The top table was adorned with a huge 6m garland of mixed foliage and white roses to combine with the centrepieces. This ran across the full length of the top table from one end to the other with a selection of crystal candles holders filled with t-lights and pillar candles for a natural lighting effect.

Cranage Hall is one of our regular venues for weddings and we will be there again there in a few days to completely transform the Stephenson Suite with full room star cloth draping and up lighting.

With a wide range of styles, equipment for every taste, and nearly 10 years of experience in the industry, Woodyatt Warner can help you along the way with your ideas and suggestions. For information, contact us at

Venue Draping at Friezland Hall

•November 8, 2017 • Comments Off on Venue Draping at Friezland Hall

The “Summer Offer” we had on venue draping at Woodyatt Warner was taken up by Becky and Steven for their wedding reception at Friezland Hall in Oldham. Having seen how we have decorated venues previously with our twinkling star cloth draping to cover walls, Becky contacted us to see if we could completely transform her venue.

From the pictures of before and after, you can see just how much of a difference adding drapes makes to venue. The vast majority of village halls, community centres, etc. are tired looking from the inside, and quite often have unflattering décor such as noticeboards, pictures, drab curtains and old paintwork. Even in Hotels, you may find that the room you are getting married in could be mistaken for a conference room.

village halls

This is where our draping and lighting effects can transform a venue into something completely different.

The star cloth draping sections are connected together, so the lights in the drapes twinkle in sequence. With a master control box, we can set the lights to a variety of modes from fading in and out, twinkling or just static. Then by attaching drapes to the ceiling and adding in coloured up lighting, of which can be set to a wide range of colours to suit your theme, the set up is complete.

Couples are discovering that you don’t need to spend thousands on a specialist wedding venue, when the local village hall can be hired for just a couple of hundred pounds or less. They can then put their own personal touch into the décor and have it exactly how they want it to look. Whether it be with simple touches of décor, or by hiring in a professional company with all the necessary equipment to create the desired effect.

Having transformed a large number of venues all across the north West and beyond, Woodyatt Warner have a huge amount of experience when it comes to full room transformations.

Mere Court Hotel Weddings

•November 7, 2017 • Comments Off on Mere Court Hotel Weddings

Woodyatt Warner created an Autumnal feel in the Conservatory at Mere Court Hotel for the wedding of Stephanie and Chris. Having seen our previous work, the couple had ideas of using colours of the season to brighten up the blank canvas of the room.

The deep reds, burnt orange, browns and dark greens were chosen as the favoured colours for the wedding, so we set about creating trees with all the Autumnal leaves, then adding in pine cones, red berries, moss and all the little elements of the season. The trees were used as centrepieces on the guest tables where we hung floating candles in glass globes from the branches to provide that touch of elegant lighting for when the darkness fell.

The top table was covered in a similar style with all the maple leaves, pine cones, berries etc. but we also added small lanterns across the entire length of the table and attached a deep red swag to the front. Cylinder vases were introduced for the bouquets to stand in during the wedding breakfast.

To further enhance the look, we covered the ceiling in red, orange and white ceiling drapes, then installed up lighting around the room to project the same colours around the conservatory. Finally by adding in the gold chivari chairs with deep red seat pads, the overall look was achieved perfectly.

Combermere Abbey Weddings

•October 3, 2017 • Comments Off on Combermere Abbey Weddings

Combermere Abbey was the location for Woodyatt Warner venue dressers to create a stunning setting for the wedding of Kiki and ChaoMing. As one of Cheshire’s leading wedding venue dressing companies, the Bride and Groom chose us to provide the décor for their ceremony and wedding reception.

As you enter the gates at Combermere Abbey, you are transported into another world, a stunning hidden gem, in a glorious and tranquil secluded corner of the Cheshire countryside, steeped in history, romance and natural beauty. All of which you can enjoy in private on your wedding day.

Overlooked by beautiful specimen trees, make your way through the magical Fruit Tree Maze to the elegant fan-shaped Glasshouse to exchange your vows. Your day then continues in our fabulous Pavilion overlooking the beautiful manicured gardens, where along with your family and friends, you can relax in the surroundings of this spectacular wedding venue.

The Bride wanted the décor to be unique, simple yet effective, and neutral in style and colour so as to match the inside of the Pavilion. With the walls and ceiling being a blank canvas to work with, the decision was made to use our amazing 2m tall blossom tree centrepieces for the guest tables and decorate them in an abundance of candles and moss to create the natural look. By alternating both table cloths and napkins with white and grey, there was an added touch of colour without it being overpowering.

The ceremony took place in the Glasshouse where we installed a huge 3m tall white blossom tree to stand under for those ever so important wedding photos. With over 60 cylinder vases filled with floating candles placed around the entire window ledge all around the room, it provided a romantic look fit for a Princess.

With a huge amount of experience in working at a vast number of wedding venues across the North West and beyond, Woodyatt Warner will be able to provide you with ideas and inspiration that could be influential in ensuring the décor reflects both your wedding and the venue itself.

Carden Park Wedding Venue Dressing

Congratulations to Elen and Joseph on their wedding at Carden Park in Chester. Elen was keen to work with us at Woodyatt Warner to provide the venue dressing in the Shooting Lodge for her wedding reception, after coming over to see us set up for a previous wedding in the same room.

carden park weddings

With Elen’s initial ideas we were able to provide some suggestions as to bring the WOW factor to the wedding of which would completely transform the Shooting Lodge.

Having worked on numerous weddings at Carden Park, we have a huge amount of knowledge as to what works well, and what doesn’t in both the Carden Suite and Shooting Lodge. Both Elen and Joseph were impressed and excited to have us on board to create something unique for their big day.

venue dressers cheshire

The Shooting Lodge has a distinctive bold look with its deep red carpet and curtains, and dark wooden beams running across the ceiling so to soften up the look, we draped over the beams on the ceiling from one end of the room to the other, then added a substantial amount of hanging lights and glass globes filled with candles for a subtle lighting effect.

For the top table we created a stunning suspended display that would hang above the table. By doing this, it allows for much greater space on the table and doesn’t obstruct the view, whilst providing a special touch to the room. More candles were hung from the display to add that romantic feel.

By introducing coloured up lighting around the room, it set the scene for a perfect wedding reception.

As you can see from the before and after pictures, there is a complete transformation to the Shooting Lodge.

Woodyatt Warner were at Carden Park again to dress the Carden Suite for Emma’s big day. As one of Cheshire’s leading wedding venue dressers, we find “Brides to be” are contacting us to create something special for their wedding after seeing the work we have done previously.

With a choice of either the larger modern Carden Suite, or the smaller Shooting Lodge with its wooden beam ceiling, there is a complete contrast of styles to choose from.

Emma decided upon the Carden Suite for her wedding reception and met us at a previous wedding we were doing in the same room a year before to go through her ideas and colour schemes. The decision was to include slight touches of teal colours into the wedding without it being too overpowering.

By softening up the look of the chair covers with our ivory ruffled hoods and finishing them off with a teal rose, they brought about different style rather than the standard bows. The centrepiece displays included a mixture of ivory and teal roses, peonies and lily’s in a large amount of mixed foliage and were placed upon two different style centrepieces  of which were crystal chandeliers and tall silver style stemmed stands.

By doing this, it created a slightly different look to the room rather than having every table looking the same.

The top table was then covered in a silver sequin table cloth and fully decorated from one end to the other with a selection of large and small pillar candles in a variety of vases and crystal candle holders. Small votives filled with teal roses were included to bring in the colour of the wedding to the table to finish it off.

Draping and Lighting

•September 9, 2017 • Comments Off on Draping and Lighting

Woodyatt Warner are a leading venue dressing company based in South Manchester, yet we find ourselves once again travelling further afield to North Wales, to completely transform a wedding venue after being contacted by a wedding planner working on behalf of their clients.

Llanarmon is a hidden gem of a village, set in the middle of nowhere as though lost in time. Surrounded with rolling hills of the Welsh countryside, this is one place you would never even know existed. With the Bride and Groom living in Bristol but wanting a venue close to their parents in Wrexham of which they could put their own ideas in place with how to decorate it, LLanarmon village hall was the perfect place.

The couple then put their ideas to a local wedding planner to have their desired effect achieved whilst they could concentrate on their day to day life without any of the stress involved. Jenene Craven wedding planner from “The Finest Detail” proceeded to contact us after seeing our previous work transforming all sorts of different venues with amazing results.

The idea was to cover the walls and ceiling, then introduce some lighting to work with the colour scheme of the wedding. After providing some different solutions to the décor, the decision was to go with the star cloth wall drapes, ceiling drapes and up lighting set to a blue glow. For outside the hall, we installed festoon lighting in the willow tree and along the decking area to create a nice atmospheric light for the evening.

As you can see from the before and after pictures of the hall, using draping and lighting effects can change the look of a venue so much, you wouldn’t even realise it was the same place. For details on how we can turn your wedding venue into a fairytale wedding setting, contact us at

Having worked all over the North West, we pride ourselves on creating wonderful weddings for couples looking for the once in a lifetime memory.

On this occasion the Bride came to see us recently at the Titanic Hotel, also in Liverpool, where we were setting up for another wedding, to see the stunning blossom trees we have, and immediately fell in love with the look of them.

Not only do we have these 6ft trees in pink, but also in white with a canopy tree that stands to the side of the top table and branches out above it so as to create an overhead look with all the blossom and branches. These trees are completely unique, as they were made specifically for us and contain a huge amount of blossom compared to some of the other trees available.
