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

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.

Having the freedom to put your own touch on a venue can really add that sparkle, especially when working on a blank canvas. From the before and after pictures, you can see just exactly how much of a dramatic change there is and the entire venue looks completely different.

Woodyatt Warner are a leading North West wedding company that have been awarded with numerous accolades over the years for the work we have done, so if you are looking for that professional touch for your wedding or event, contact us at with your details.

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

Elegant Weddings

•February 22, 2017 • Comments Off on Elegant Weddings

Venue decoration is an important part of your wedding day and everyone has their own ideas on how to have that perfect setting. When choosing your style and colour schemes, the venue will play a huge role on your decisions.

One of our Brides chose the Ashton village Hotel for her big day, as the marquee matched her vision perfectly. She then contacted us at Woodyatt Warner after seeing our previous work and asked us to provide the venue dressing to create that elegant look using just three neutral colours consisting of white, ivory and creams.

With the lining of the marquee being of an ivory/cream colour on a white base, this would be a perfect fit with our Brides chosen styling.

The tables were dressed with white cloths and over the top were placed ivory lace overlays to bring out the colour of the sashes on the chairs and the flowers in the centrepieces. The lace was used on the chairs along with cream coloured satin sashes, and finished off with an ivory rose.

The floral displays on the tables consisted of head to head roses and peonies in the same shades as the rest of thee venue décor. To add that extra touch of glam, glass globes were hung from the flowers and candles placed in them for that romantic feel. Being very large centrepieces they brought about the WOW factor to the marquee upon entering, and tied everything together to ensure the room looked elegant and classy.

By keeping to neutral colours, a marquee is the ideal venue for this style of wedding as it is a blank canvas, but keeping with minimalistic colours, the vast majority of venues will be suitable for this styling.

Wedding Decoration Ideas

•February 21, 2017 • Comments Off on Wedding Decoration Ideas

Following on from 2016, we shall see an influx of greenery and flower walls to bring in that rustic charm to the 2017 weddings. Woodyatt Warner are one of the leading wedding companies in the North West that create stunning décor at venues for your wedding, and with an abundance of ideas and a huge amount of experience, we can make sure you have the special day you always wanted.

Every style of venue, whether it be a Marquee, Hotel, Converted Barn or Castle can be decorated covered in as much or little greenery as you want without it looking out of place as it acts as a base to add flowers to, or can simply be left on its own to break up the box effect of rooms.

wedding venue dressing

As can be seen in the pictures below, greenery can provide some great effects, especially on blank canvases such as marquees where it can be used to frame doorways, section areas off, or decorate ceilings.

Having incorporated all these styles into previous weddings, Woodyatt Warner venue dressers are constantly keeping up to date with new and exciting wedding trends for you to bring into the styling of your venue. One of the most effective ways of using greenery for the top table is to take all the décor off the table and have it suspended above you on a hanging display.

By doing this, you free up the space on the table in front of you so there is nothing blocking your view, and more importantly, your photographer can get far better pictures of you during your wedding breakfast. If you don’t have the luxury of a ceiling or beams to hang anything from, a framework can be installed around and above the table to attach the greenery to.

top table decor ideas

Centrepieces are another main factor to the venue dressing, and can be a pivotal role in the overall look. Ceiling height is something to consider, as anything with a high ceiling requires larger centrepieces to fill the space. If this is overlooked and small table centrepieces are used, you may find that the room can look lost.
