Venue Dressing

•June 23, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Woodyatt Warner are a Cheshire based events company specialising in creating amazing weddings with our venue dressing service. Our latest wedding took us to an unusual venue where no weddings have been done before.

The Boathouse at Sale Water Park is famed for its elevated views from the windows in the restaurant of which overlook the lake filled with continuous water sports from sailing to Jet skis, canoeing and the occasional swimmer. Along with the scenery, you can enjoy fabulous food and a great selection of wines from the menu to ensure you have an enjoyable visit, whether it be during lunch or for an evening meal.

This particular wedding was very unique due to the nature of it being, the restaurant owners daughter, of whom was celebrating her special day. Sophie was particularly keen on having something very glitzy and glamorous, but also to incorporate the pink colours she had decided upon for the decoration and having seen our previous work, was delighted to find a very local trusted award winning supplier that could provide everything she wanted.

Having met Sophie at the venue, we discussed the ideas in mind and provided suggestions of our own as to how the room would look best from experience. With it being an unusual shape for a wedding reception, there were some elements that needed careful consideration, such as the location of the top table, where best to install the dance floor, lighting and star cloth draping, then to consider the space left available to bring in the tables for the guests, so as to have the best opportunity for the entire wedding party to feel an integral part of the wedding.

Sophie chose our elaborate crystal chandelier centrepieces that illuminate from the base to project lighting through the crystals, then to add a white rose and peony display to the top with the base surrounded with a ring of hydrangea heads. Having hired our white table cloths, there needed a touch of colour to the table, so we introduced the coloured napkins of which brings in the desired effect.

The chairs were decorated with traditional covers and covered with pink hoods tied in the centre with a white rose to combine with the centrepiece displays.

We then decorated the top table in a silver sequin table cloth and covered the length of the table in a selection of silver vases, filled with scaled down versions of the floral centrepiece displays, crystal candle holders, fluted vases, cylinder vases and glass stemmed candle holders. All of which were filled with large and small candles.

Behind the top table we installed a white LED dance floor and surrounded it with white star cloth twinkling drapes with lights that were sequenced with the dance floor.

The up lighting was placed along the lower floor walls to create an atmospheric effect that changes throughout the day and really comes into its own during the evening when the lights really change the overall effect of the room.

As one of the North West’s leading wedding companies, Woodyatt Warner are often challenged to dress the most bizarre and unusual venues. Having a huge amount of experience working at hundreds of venues across Cheshire, Manchester, Lancashire, Staffordshire, Liverpool, Merseyside and further afield, we are more than capable of providing something completely special and unique for your wedding or event.

Crowne Plaza Liverpool Venue Dressing

•June 1, 2017 • Comments Off on Crowne Plaza Liverpool Venue Dressing

With an abundance of wedding venues in Liverpool, Woodyatt Warner venue dressers were working at the Crowne Plaza in Speke Liverpool. The hotel is conveniently situated next to the airport and all major road links and is a great venue for any wedding or event, with suites available to accommodate large numbers of guests.

For this wedding we were asked to make huge floral displays in mainly creams, and white with greenery to compliment  the neutral colours. An abundance of hydrangeas, roses and peonies were used to create these amazing centrepieces.

Having large displays fills the room much better and certainly provides much more of the WOW factor. As they stand on vases that raise the flowers well above the eye line when seated, they don’t obstruct the view across the table. Also, neutral colours work with any style and can easily be incorporated into any wedding set up.

Owen House Barn Venue Dressing

•May 21, 2017 • Comments Off on Owen House Barn Venue Dressing

Woodyatt Warner venue dressers were hired by the Bride and Groom, Amy and Paul, to decorate their wedding venue for their special day.

The chosen venue was the stunning Owen House Barn. This Barn was converted into a wedding venue in 2013, yet still retains its original features. In the small village of Mobberley, set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, this family run venue is a hidden gem that is fast becoming a very popular location for many weddings.

Due to its versatility, the Barn can accommodate large numbers of guests and is licensed to hold civil ceremonies, so you get everything under one roof.

Amy and Paul wanted to incorporate the coral colours of their wedding into the overall décor, and preferred unique tree centrepieces rather than floral displays. By adding coral coloured flowers to the branches and using hanging pearl hearts and glass globes filled with candles, the centrepiece trees flowed with the rustic style of the Barn.

In addition to the centrepieces, we installed festoon lighting from the centre of the ceiling to each of the corners of the Barn and up lighting around the walls to create an atmospheric mood effect throughout the day.

The chairs were then dressed with a simple hessian sash.

Titanic Hotel Weddings

•April 14, 2017 • Comments Off on Titanic Hotel Weddings

Woodyatt Warner venue dressers were in the Rum Warehouse at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool to set up our stunning blossom tree centrepieces for Sarah’s wedding day.

The Rum Warehouse is a banqueting facility created in a restored 1950s warehouse of which adjoins the Titanic Hotel. With seating for a maximum of 500 guests, this event space is unique and suitable for all sorts of weddings. You will also find rooms for every size of party. Combine this with catering and bar facilities available on-site, and the magnificent Titanic Hotel just next door means you can simply roll out of the warehouse and into the hotel.

The Bride contacted us after seeing our stunning blossom trees available to hire. With the ceiling in the Rum Warehouse being very high, there was a necessity to have tall centrepieces on the tables so the room wouldn’t look lost, and the best way to do this was to add the 6ft trees to create a huge eye opener for the guests upon arrival.

Blossom trees are fast becoming the style to have for weddings, and from the picture you can see just how life like and beautiful they look when decorated with hanging glass globes filled with candles and moss for the base of the tree. We have either the dusky pink or white blossom trees available for hire, both of which are 6ft in height.

High Legh Village Hall Wedding

•March 31, 2017 • Comments Off on High Legh Village Hall Wedding

Hiring a Village Hall is a cost effective way of having your wedding reception at a fraction of the cost of a standard Hotel, but with the ability to add your own personal touch and have exactly what you want with very minimal restrictions.

Woodyatt Warner were called upon by Laura and Patrick to create something special on the inside of High Legh Village Hall in Knutsford for their wedding day. After seeing how we have transformed previous venues, the idea was to completely cover all the walls with our star cloth twinkling light draping, then add in some colour with our up lighting effects.

room draping and lighting

With having a side room for the DJ and evening party to be held in, we created a tied back curtain built into the wall drapes ready for the big reveal. Then on the ceiling we hung lanterns and bunting to finish the room off in style.

With numerous years of experience working at all sorts of venues across the North West, from Hotels, converted barns, sporting stadiums, castles, stately homes, marquees etc. we have built up an impressive amount of knowledge of how to provide you with the best attention to detail and guide you as to what works and what doesn’t, so you can be assured your wedding or event will certainly raise some eyebrows.

Wedding Flower Wall

•March 21, 2017 • Comments Off on Wedding Flower Wall

Since the glamorous Kardashian wedding, Flower Walls are fast becoming the must have accessory for weddings. Woodyatt Warner venue dressers have created a stunning Flower Wall that can be built up to a huge 9m in length. With over 8000 flowers in the full size wall, this amazing feature will certainly create something of a talking point amongst all your guests.

The Flower Wall is created using pre built in 1m squared sections that connect together. With it being so versatile, the wall can be installed in a variety of locations to fit the area.

With a maximum height of 3m, this is an extremely impressive backdrop for your wedding ceremony, reception or even as a photo backdrop in a completely different location for the day. Imagine sitting at the ceremony table signing the wedding register with the Flower Wall behind you? The photos would be one in a million!!

Many Brides choose to use the wall in a similar fashion by having it built behind the top table. Due to its versatility, it doesn’t matter whether you have 4 or 14 guests seated as we can make sure the flower wall is long enough to cover the entire table length.

Our Flower Walls are extremely popular and haver been used at weddings, birthdays parties, christenings and corporate events all over the UK.

Event Draping and Lighting

•March 19, 2017 • Comments Off on Event Draping and Lighting

The Victoria and Albert Manchester Marriott is a regular venue for Woodyatt Warner wedding venue dressers. As a local supplier to the Hotel, we were asked to dress the John Logie Baird Suite for a 30th Birthday party.

Having seen our previous work, the Birthday girl “Natalie” wanted us to completely transform the style of the room into a stunning party venue by covering all the walls in our star cloth drapes and illuminating them with up lighting in a chosen purple glow.

drapes and lighting

By adding in the draping, all the doorways that are not being used, décor on the walls, including pictures, light fittings etc. will be covered from floor to ceiling. The up lighting then finishes everything off perfectly, and can be set to a wide range of colours. The transformation is not only dramatic, but sensational.

Draping can be installed anywhere as it comes attached to a free standing pipe system so wont affect any fixtures or fittings, and therefore has the ability to work around corners so as not leave any unsightly gaps, making it a highly versatile way of providing that stunning finish.

This is becoming a very popular way of providing the WOW factor, and instead of spending thousands on that perfect venue, you can simply opt for a much cheaper location and convert it using the draping system.

Having dressed numerous locations all over the North West, Woodyatt Warner are constantly adding new additions to our list of venues we have previously worked at. For further information on how we can transform your wedding or event, contact us at
