One of Rookery Hall’s Most Romantic Weddings

•July 24, 2022 • Comments Off on One of Rookery Hall’s Most Romantic Weddings

Dressing a wedding venue is an art form. It requires vision and an eye for aesthetics. Woodyatt Warner have over a decade of valuable experience, and this will ensure your big day will be out of this world.

One of our latest weddings took place at the magnificent Rookery Hall in the stunning Worleston Suite. With floor to ceiling windows allowing an abundance of natural light to fill the entire room. This was definitely going to be a dream wedding set up.

Transforming any room can bring about a whole host of issues. The room layout, the colour of the walls, carpet, and lighting on the walls, all need to be taken into account when choosing your decor style. Having all the natural light and neutral coloured walls creates the perfect backdrop for simple, yet elegant whites, ivory and green shades in the table centrepieces and room decor.

Having a large room with a high ceiling allows for taller centrepieces. Glamour and elegance is instrumental to achieving the desired goals. With this in mind, we created two different centrepiece styles. One taller and one smaller.

Having ten guest tables was an incentive to show the Bride and Groom that mixing two styles was a better idea.


To keep within the parameters of the required designs, the taller centrepieces were over two and a half metres in height. With the smaller just over a metre.

The taller ones consisted of a silver rectangular frame as a stand with the base covered in hydrangeas and candles. For the top of the stand we created a large floral design. This was a huge amount of foliage including eucalyptus, ruscus and ferns. All used as a base and filled with white hydrangeas, roses, peonies and stems of pussy willow.

The smaller centrepieces were round double hoop frames placed onto the tables. At the bottom of the hoops we made scaled down versions of the larger displays. This allowed the theme to run throughout.

Room Decor

As a highly experienced and well renowned company in the wedding industry, we at Woodyatt Warner Ltd have an eye for detail. By installing a huge three metre floral heart to stand behind the top table, and utilizing flowers and candles across the front of the top table itself. The romance is evident to see.

A wedding to be proud of.

Beautiful Wedding at Astley Bank

The Astley Bank Hotel is situated in Darwen, Lancashire. The hotel has gained a significant reputation of being a premium wedding venue, and was also voted Hotel of the Year and won the Lancashire Life Award.

This was achieved by providing an excellent service for guests staying at the venue. The 19th century Mansion House has been maintained to a high standard and sits within the beautiful Lancashire countryside.

The idyllic surroundings and landscaped gardens provide the best opportunity for those wedding photos. Take a walk through the grounds to experience beauty around every corner. There’s no wonder the Astley Bank Hotel is often referred to as a hidden gem.

Today was an extra special day for Kayleigh and Kyle. The Bride and Groom were arriving to tie the knot and booked us to create something magical for their big day. This is something we excel at, and transformed the room with our venue decor and imaginative styling.

The Venue Dressing

Woodyatt Warner are highly recognized in the wedding industry for the work we do decorating venues for couples on their wedding day. The Astley Bank was today’s project, and Kayleigh wanted elegance and and sophistication whilst keeping the decor neutral. The floral centrepieces for the tables were created to match the theme. Using a variety of different flowers including, roses, peonies, allium, hydrangeas and phalaenopsis orchids, the end result was a stunning large floral design.

Each one was placed onto ornate fluted vases and added to the seven guest tables. Two different sized vases allowed for a slight difference in height as an added effect. By doing this it breaks up the uniformity of the room.

For the top table we installed a full length garland of foliage to cover the entire length of the table. To keep in theme with the rest of the decor, all the flowers from the centrepieces were added. Simple, yet elegant decorations perfectly matched the room with its large windows allowing in plenty of natural light. The ceiling decorated with draping and fairy lights softened up the overall look.

As one of the leading wedding venue dressers, Woodyatt Warner have an extensive history in providing bespoke tailored styles for each and every bride. No two weddings are the same, so we create floral displays for each and every wedding that are different.

The White Hart Lydgate Wedding Flowers

Seasons of the year are a big focus on deciding what to have as table centrepieces. Neutral, yet elegant white, ivory and greens are a great start to the Spring months. Whilst bright or pastel colours are the main focus in Summer. Autumn brings out some stunning colours that include, reds, burnt orange, burgundy, purple, browns and shades of green.

Then during the Winter months, anything goes. You may wish to go bold with Gold, or stay natural and keep it plain and simple with the whites and greens.

The you have to take into account the style of the venue before deciding on the floral centrepieces. Not everything will work in every venue. Low ceilings, busy rooms and small tables can be a contributing factor on your decision. The last thing you want is to hire tall floral’s and be in a situation where the room is too small for them to fit in. On the other hand……… don’t want a room with a very high ceiling and low level centrepieces.

This can be a recipe for disaster as the room looks lost and empty. Always ensure you have something suitable on the tables to fill the space. Cylinder vases filled with water and floating candles are a very romantic setting on the tables. They are especially fitting in smaller rooms. If you have eight or more tables, then an option is to have two different centrepiece styles.

By doing this it breaks up the uniformity of the room and brings in elements of height.

Stunning Weddings at Colshaw Hall

•January 24, 2022 • Comments Off on Stunning Weddings at Colshaw Hall

Woodyatt Warner are a highly experienced venue dressing company, and Colshaw Hall is one of the many venues we cover for weddings and events. On this occasion we were asked to create something beautiful for Clare and Ben, the happy couple.

For the special occasion, Clare and Ben decided to hold both their ceremony and reception at the venue. The ceremony taking place in the converted barn, and the reception in the luxurious Peel Suite.

Ceremony Barn

To enhance their day, they chose Woodyatt Warner to decorate the venue for them. For the ceremony, we styled the beams in the Barn with an abundance of foliage filled with trailing wisteria. Drapes were then hung over the beams above the ceremony aisle.

To really make for a special setting, we decorated the aisle with full length floral displays to run along both edges all the way from the back to the front of the Barn. The displays were created using a base of foliage stems with neutral white flowers added. A variety of vases with floating candles were introduced to provide a romantic feel to the Barn. All of which were set up down the aisle.

For an extra touch, the large floral centrepieces were staggered along the aisle on clear perspex columns. All of which brought about a luxurious feel to the wedding.


When the wedding ceremony had finished, the guests moved to the Pavilion for drinks and canapes. They were greeted by one of our fabulous heart shaped floral installations. This was a perfect backdrop for phtoto’s when moving between the rooms.

Peel Suite

The Peel Suite is where the wedding breakfast and evening reception take place, and is a picture perfect setting for the enjoyment of that first meal together for the newly married couple. By transferring the centrepieces from the ceremony onto the tables in the Peel Suite, the finishing touches were applied.

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.

All away along the edges we added rows and rows of neutral white floral displays and combined them with a huge amount of cylinder vases filled with water and floating candles to provide the romantic lighting. As if this wasn’t enough, we also included twenty vases of white hydrangea bunches and ten foot free standing blossom trees.

An already perfect ceremony barn was transformed into a fantastic looking dream wedding.
