Weddings at The Higher Trapp Hotel

•January 1, 2022 • Comments Off on Weddings at The Higher Trapp Hotel

Nestled in the heart of the Ribble Valley and surrounded by breathtaking scenery. Higher Trapp House is a unique place in this part of Lancashire with the ability to offer fully exclusive wedding use for your special day. There are plenty of highlights at this scenic wedding venue. From the traditional oak staircase, cozy fireplaces and original leaded windows overlooking the fine Pagoda in the carefully manicured gardens and lush green lawns. An ideal setting where you can hold your ceremony.

This was the location for our recent wedding. Woodyatt Warner were asked to provide all the decor for Laura’s big day.

The Bride, Laura chose Woodyatt Warner to decorate the hotel for her wedding day. Her ideas were to have a very elegant style, with simple white flowers and elements of green foliage. Simple neutral colours really add the wow factor to the venue.

Wedding Ceremony

To start the day in style, we set up all the decor in the ceremony room. Consisting of a full length aisle carpet for the happy couple to walk down. Either side of the carpet we introduced clear perspex columns for the centrepieces to stand on. The columns provide a clean natural look.

The centrepieces were a mix of two different styles. The first floral design was created using a thick base of various shades of green foliage. Included were stems of eucalyptus, ruscus and ferns. Touches of white roses, peonies and hydrangeas were then added to bulk up the overall display and increase the size. These floral displays were then placed onto tall gold frame stands. All of which were then stood upon alternate columns along the aisle.

The second centrepiece style was made from a double gold hoop decorated with a scaled down version of the larger floral displays. By doing this it kept the theme running throughout.

A three metre wide flower wall was installed behind the registrars table and over 4000 petals were scattered along the aisle to finish off the decor.

Wedding Breakfast

Upon completion of the ceremony, the room was turned around to accommodate for the top and guest tables ready for the wedding breakfast.

A long full length foliage garland decorated the top table. This was filled with with trailing wisteria, roses and peonies to match the centrepieces. This cascaded over the front of the table. Centrepieces were then placed onto the guest tables and the flower wall moved to behind the Bride and Groom’s seats.

At Woodyatt Warner we take huge pride in creating amazing set ups for weddings and events and don’t leave anything to chance. That is why we have won numerous achievements for our work.

The Ultimate Dream Wedding Ceremony Decor

•December 21, 2021 • Comments Off on The Ultimate Dream Wedding Ceremony Decor

Woodyatt Warner venue dressers are proud to bring you some of the most beautiful dream wedding ceremony set ups.

It all comes down to choice of venue for the style of decor that fits the bill. Church weddings tend to be more discreet and somber. Church goers and the clergy aren’t big fans of lots of fabulous decor. On the other hand, a civil ceremony can provide you with endless ideas and a much wider spectrum to fulfill your dreams.

Imagine that blank canvas of a marquee or the rustic charm of a converted barn. Then use your imagination, or let us do the work and create something that will blow you away.

As you can see from the pictures below, the ceremony barn at Merrydale Manor is a lovely place to get married. Once decorated though, it makes for possibly one of the finest wedding venues in the North West.

Incorporating trees into the ceremony design brings in not only a rustic theme, but it also provides a stunning overhead canopy to walk under. The ultimate dream ceremomy!

Think about the styling for the ceremony. After all, this is the most important part of the day. You don’t want to get this wrong. Use as much decor as you can from the rest of the day. So by all means have your centrepieces, candles and anything else you have at hand. Use them for the ceremony.

All this decor can be moved after the ceremony onto the tables for the wedding breakfast. This may incur added costs for staff to stay on site for the duration. Bear in mind though, the cost for staff to stay, is much less then dressing both the ceremony and the wedding breakfast room separately.

Same Room for both Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast

A different approach to your choosing of a venue can be to have both parts of the day in the same room. This can save on overall costs of having to use two separate areas. It can also allow you to keep the theme of the day running throughout.

As can be seen from the wedding we have done at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool from the pictures below. The West Bay Suite is of a generous size, so can accommodate for both sides of the day. Once the ceremony guests have exited the room following the newly married couple, we can do what we do best. Completely change the room around and set it up ready for the guests to come back in for the wedding breakfast.

The White Hart at Lydgate Autumn Wedding

•December 20, 2021 • Comments Off on The White Hart at Lydgate Autumn Wedding

The White Hart at Lydgate was a recent venue for us. This was our first wedding at the venue and it certainly brought about some gasps and joy. The Oak Room and the Pavilion were both utilized for this wedding. With the Pavilion set out for the ceremony and the Oak Room ready for the wedding breakfast.

Guests arrive through a private entrance in to The Oak Room. This fantastic area was built in 2005 using green oak timbers. It boasts a unique vaulted ceiling with central glass atrium. This provides a light and airy space bringing in all the natural light.

The Oak room has the ability to cater up to 180 seated guests for your wedding breakfast. For the evening reception there is enough room to hold around 230.

For the ceremony in the Pavilion we framed the registrars table with our own unique heart shaped autumnal tree. This is 10 foot high so even the tallest can stand under it. Having this surrounding you is a stunning addition for those photos when signing the register.

By including a wide variety of leaves, pine cones, twigs and candles along the aisle it certainly adds the wow factor to the room. To finalize the decoration, we added an abundance of floating candles mixed with small bunches of flowers. This creates different height elements for the ceremony.

The Oak Room was transformed using all the magical bright colours of Autumn. Orange, Brown, Deep Red, Purple and Greens all add to the transformation. The wooden beams highlight the floral centrepieces perfectly on the tables. The slightly different styles of floral displays break up the uniformity in the room and add subtle differences whilst keeping in theme with the rest of the decor.

Unique Wedding Designs for Autumn

Autumn provides us with the opportunity to create stunning designs. Bright deep colours really are jaw dropping when used correctly.

As can be seen from some of our previous work, there are various ideas for Autumnal weddings. Floral displays can add the wow factor to the room. simple touches such as coloured napkins and table cloths can transform the overall look. Then there are larger scale decorations such as flower walls and giant heart shaped trees.

Deep red, burnt orange, browns, yellows and touches of dark green are the best colours to utilize when trying to create the perfect set up.

Flower walls are the ultimate backdrop for photos and this Autumnal design is illuminated with LED up lights set in orange to highlight the wall. If you wanted something slightly different. An arch is another style that can be versatile. Or maybe have the staircase decorated?

Choosing your wedding venue can play a crucial role in the decor. The rustic charm of bare wooden beams lends itself perfectly to Autumnal designs. Therefore, converted barns are the perfect choice. The colours combined with romantic candles give you that warmth that is sometimes overlooked.

Seasons of the year make for some spectacular settings. However, Autumn is probably the most striking when creating a day to remember.

Wedding Venue Dressing in Liverpool

Creating the most amazing settings for weddings is something we at Woodyatt Warner venue dressers are very proud to do. Our latest outing to the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool was quite a spectacular wedding. Georgia and Nathan were the happy couple and they chose us to provide the decor for their big day.

The chosen venue was the West Bay Suite with its spacious industrial style surroundings. This was ideal for the decorations we were bringing in to transform the room ready for the ceremony.

Titanic Hotel weddings

Georgia wanted a ceremony set up that would really have the Wow factor. For this we installed huge overhanging canopy blossom trees all the way down the aisle on both sides. This would allow Georgia and Nathan to walk under the trees down the aisle.

In between the trees we used large floral centrepiece displays created using an abundance of foliage and filled with neutral flowers. These were mainly hydrangeas, roses and peonies with added wild flowers and pampas grass. They were placed on stands to elevate them above head height.

To add to the decor we introduced a selection of cylinder vases with floating candles. Over 6000 petals were then scattered along both edges of the aisle to finish off the effect.

At the registrars table we built a framed floral arch for a backdrop for photos when signing the wedding register. This was then utilized behind the newly married couple on the top table for the wedding breakfast. As an added bonus we also designed and installed a 7ft moon gate hoop to stand behind the three tiered cake.

Once the ceremony had finished we moved all the decor so the tables could be set up for the wedding breakfast. New smaller hoop centrepieces were then brought in for half the tables. The other tables were decorated with the floral displays used during the ceremony.

The top table was then filled all the way across the front with lots of candles, foliage and small bunches of flowers to match the centrepiece designs.

An absolutely stunning set up throughout the entire day. Not to mention an extremely happy couple with a great future ahead of them. All the best to the new Mr & Mrs Gaskell.
