Venue Dressing

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.
