Thornton Hall Weddings

•February 23, 2019 • Comments Off on Thornton Hall Weddings

Thornton Hall was the former home of the wealthy shipping merchants, the Bamford Brothers of Liverpool. The original building is believed to have been built around 1830, and became a flying club after World War II and was then transformed into a hotel in 1954.

Today the hotel is owned by the Thompson Family and is known for its food and hospitality with a four-star rating. The hotel is located in Thornton Hough, a small leafy area of the Wirral and boasts 63 bedrooms and suites for weddings, events and conferences. It is home to the award-winning triple AA rosette restaurant The Lawns providing mouth watering food for your wedding.

Woodyatt Warner venue dressers have worked at the Hotel on numerous weddings fully decorating both the Torintone Suite capable of holding up to 650 guests, and the newly refurbished Cristal suite. The most recent wedding was a multicultural event where we transformed the Torintone suite with a huge amount of décor from blossom trees to a flower wall and dance floor. The Bride and Groom were greeted with a raised staging area surrounded with a huge floral wall and a room filled with glamorous table centres.

Rookery Hall Weddings

•December 11, 2018 • Comments Off on Rookery Hall Weddings

It was an emotional day for Gareth and Shelley at Rookery Hall on their wedding day and Woodyatt Warner venue dressers were there to dress the venue for the arrival of the Bride and Groom.

Built in 1816 for the wealthy William Hilton Cooke, Rookery Hall Hotel has moved with the times to continue to keep up with the ever changing demands. In 1867 the stylish French chateau tower was added to the main building, and then in 1990, a new wing was created. Then in 2007 the sprawling estate was enhanced with a new health club and spa, stylish luxury bedrooms and a conference and banqueting centre able to host all manor of events. However, with these improvements the contemporary touches still remain to keep a relaxed, homely atmosphere.

Rookery Hall weddings

Set in 38 acres of stunning Cheshire countryside, Rookery Hall is a Georgian Manor House capable of holding weddings of up to 160 guests with countless opportunities for those all important photos.

The Bride and Groom decided to go with quite a neutral colour scheme with slight touches of gold to enhance the look of the room. With the use of two styles of centrepieces, both of which were used for the ceremony, the theme ran from the start of the day all the way to the end. Blossom trees and large floral displays containing seasonal foliage with a selection of hydrangeas, peonies and roses created a stylish effect to the Worleston Suite.

To finish off the ceremony, we created a beautiful swirl effect with over 4000 rose petals all the way down the aisle culminating with two hearts at the front where the vows were to take place.

The top table was covered in gold crystal candle holders and cylinder vases with floating candles, and then framed with our huge canopy blossom trees.

As regular suppliers to Rookery Hall, we have the knowledge and experience to cater for all your ideas, so if you are looking for someone to create the dream look, contact us at and we will be more than happy to help you along the way.

Village Hotel Ashton Weddings

•November 14, 2018 • Comments Off on Village Hotel Ashton Weddings

The Village Hotel in Ashton was the location of Zoe’s wedding after party, and Woodyatt Warner venue dressers were on hand to transform the room for the special event. After tying the knot abroad in a small intimate wedding, Zoe had planned to celebrate back in Manchester with all the family and friends.

The theme was based around blossom trees and after searching for the perfect trees to use as centrepieces, our very own unique dusky pink blossom trees were exactly what Zoe was looking for.

venue dressers cheshire

By adding in up lighting around the room along with the blossom tree centrepieces, ruffled chair cover hoods, 5ft light up letters and an LED dance floor, the transformation was complete and ready for the arrival of all the guests.

The Hotel has all the necessary amenities to cater for your wedding, with a banqueting suite large enough to hold up to 220 guests. This can be partitioned off to make the room half the size if you are having fewer numbers. With the high ceilings in the room, it is ideal to have taller centrepieces so as to fill the space, otherwise the room can look quite empty. The 6ft pink blossom trees work perfectly to not only fill the space, but add that all important WOW factor.

We have a wide range of blossom trees available to hire, from the 6ft white, ivory and dusky pink, to the stunning 12ft white canopy trees, all of which will look fantastic in any setting.

For information on hiring trees and any other décor, contact us at and we will be more than happy to go through all the details with you.

Room dressing at Altrincham FC

•November 6, 2018 • Comments Off on Room dressing at Altrincham FC

Woodyatt Warner venue dressers work very closely with the team at Altrincham FC to create memorable events in the Community Sports Hall. Having seen our previous work at the Club, we were asked to dress the Hall for a surprise 40th birthday party. The theme was glitz and sparkle.

With the Sports Hall being a blank canvas, pretty much anything can be done to transform it into the perfect setting for your wedding, birthday party, christening etc. The room is 24m in length so very spacious. However, by adding in the star cloth curtain, the room can be brought in so as to cater for the smaller events that don’t require the entire room.

For this particular event, we covered the walls in white star cloth drapes then added in a black star cloth to stand behind the DJ. The lighting is all set so as to twinkle in sequence with the LED dance floor to really add the WOW factor to the room. The tables were covered in black and white table cloths with alternate black and white chair covers around them with mirror ball centrepieces illuminated from beneath so as to reflect lighting across the table.

The lighting plays a huge role in the transformation of the room, and a purple glow is the best option. By using the strip lighting in the Hall along with up lights set around the walls, the room was finished and ready for the arrival of the birthday girl.

With over 10 years of experience creating amazing settings for all manor of events, Woodyatt Warner have the knowledge and ideas to ensure your event will be the most memorable. Contact us at and see what we can do for you.

Merrydale Manor Weddings

Merrydale Manor in Knutsford was the destination for Woodyatt Warner to provide our venue dressing service for Fernanda and Campbell’s special day.

Located in Over Peover in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, Merrydale Manor stands minutes away from its sister wedding venue Colshaw Hall. This luxurious venue is yours on an exclusive basis so you have the entire estate and grounds to yourself for the entire day.

Not only does it provides the perfect backdrop for pictures, but you have the option of staying in the Manor House at the end of the night.

The pièce de résistance though is the brand new, purpose-built Merrydale Suite and Bar, comprising of state of the art equipment and luxurious interior décor allowing views over the courtyard gardens at the back and the lake to the front.

Fernanda chose to have our stunning blossom trees to decorate half her guest tables along with the huge canopy blossom trees to stand either side of the top table. For the remaining tables, our great friends at Diddibox Flowers created beautiful 3 piece floral displays on tiered cylinder vases.

For the evening reception, the curtain was pulled back to reveal the evening reception area where we installed a white LED dance floor ready for the night time dancing and festivities to begin.

Ashfield House Wedding Venue Dressing

•October 10, 2018 • Comments Off on Ashfield House Wedding Venue Dressing

As one of the North West’s leading venue dressing companies, Woodyatt Warner are in high demand from Brides to create something amazing for their big day, and Ashfield House in Standish is an exclusive wedding venue that is one we are frequently asked to dress.

In recent years this privately owned House has enjoyed a magnificent renovation to provide a beautiful blank canvas for weddings, ready for us to decorate to a very high standard.

woodyatt warner wedding venues

Bordering on the edges of Lancashire and Manchester, this secluded wedding venue is certainly not one to be overlooked. From the moment you walk through the front door you are greeted by such a friendly team that you will feel at home. There is no wonder Ashfield House won the UK’s best wedding venue 2017/2018.

Woodyatt Warner have been on numerous occasions to the venue to set up both ceremony and wedding breakfast décor with a variety of styles. the most popular trend at the moment being the blossom trees for the tables and the huge canopy trees that stand behind the top table in the bay windows. From the pictures you can see just how effective the trees look in such a beautiful venue.

ashfield house venue dressers

By adding in lots of cylinder vases filled with water and floating candles, and large pillar candles, there is an extremely romantic feel created throughout the entire House. Whether covering the staircase leading down to the hall, or simply filling the aisle for the ceremony, there is an abundance of places to add décor to.

When trying to match the trees with flowers, hydrangeas are the best options as they have a very similar look and work extremely well together. They can be added around the bottom of the trees so as to hide the metal support base. Then to complete the look, hanging glass globes filled with candles are attached to the branches. The large canopy blossom trees are decorated the same way to add to the effect.

The top table can then either be left free, with small amounts of décor, or can go all out with a full length garland of flowers. Either way, all styles work perfectly with the canopy trees behind them.

Ashton on Mersey Golf Club Weddings

•October 10, 2018 • Comments Off on Ashton on Mersey Golf Club Weddings

Golf clubs are not the most popular destinations for weddings, but they can be hidden gems that are often overlooked. Woodyatt Warner venue dressers have a huge amount of experience in decorating all venues from Castles to Hotels, Village Halls to Marquees, so working at different venues on a regular basis allows us to be more creative.

Ashton on Mersey Golf Club is set alongside the river Mersey and has great views across the impressive scenery of the golf course and surrounding countryside, so there are ample opportunities for those all important wedding photos.

venue dressers cheshire

The function room at the golf club is your standard style set up mainly in use for golfers and various events throughout the year so with some added extra touches, the room can be completely transformed into a stunning room for any wedding.

Andy and Amy were the happy couple tying the knot locally in Church before holding their wedding reception at the Gold Club, where we brought in everything from drapes to lighting, centrepieces to coloured linen.

The walls were covered with star cloth draping of which contain twinkling lights throughout. By then installing up lights around the room, a coloured lighting was introduced to match the colours of the wedding.

For the tables we provided the large floral displays filled with white, ivory and pink roses with hydrangeas and peonies all placed onto a fluted glass vase so as to add height to the tables and not impede the view across the table. By introducing coloured napkins to the tables, and ivory ruffled hoods to the chairs, the colours of the wedding are added subtly.

To finish off the look, fairy lights were added across the ceiling to really add some sparkle. This completely transformed the look of the function room into a perfect setting for a wedding reception.
