The main thing to keep in your mind when thinking about your venue is how your going to dress it and how you want the first impression to look to your guests.
Venue dressing is one of the most commonly discussed subjects when entering your venue, second to your dress of course!
What look are you going for?…Is it chabby chic, diamante bling, or maybe soft textures…the overall look all has a part to play on giving your guests the impression that you intended for.
Some brides find choosing your colour scheme easy however other’s like me just love bright colours and would struggle to dwindle it down to one choice! Pink is said to represent unconditional love and understanding, whilst purple is a passionate colour, signifying devotion and luxury.
You may also find it easier to look at seasonal colours, for example a spring wedding may see a lot of pinks, purples and navy blues, light blue tones and greens, whereas greens, reds, burgandy’s and golds would be more suited to an Autumn wedding, these mixed with cream tones and browns make for a very classical overall look.
At the moment the biggest look is using many tones of the same colour, however the colours for 2015 seem to be looking very vibrant with some stunning colour combinations being used!
We did a recent wedding at The Coniston Hotel which was all about soft lace textures! We did a soft lace top table drape, with a magical fairy lit backdrop and chair covers with soft lace ivory sashes and a pearl broach. Teamed with soft pink and ivory flowers the end result looked exquisit!
Look out for our upcoming blog on our latest weddings including images of our nude sateen hooded bows at Rudding Park Hotel!
Using contrasts such as black and white can give a formal and glamorous feel.
Although, if you would like to throw in another colour as an ascent colour, such as red, pink and blue, it would brighten your room up slightly. Centre pieces or bridesmaids flowers could be in this ascent colour to add another dimension to the look.
If you’re looking for a soft and feminine wedding, but still striking, black and white is the theme for you.
Black and White work as one of those ‘timeless classics’ that will never go out of style, it will ooze elegance forever!

Starting with the civil ceremony, we created this soft peaceful feel using our Cappuccino sashes on Shireburn Arms own chairs. We tied the pew ends to the side to create an aisle feel and finished with our Ivory Aisle carpet and co-ordinating petals.
This scheme really complimented the already beautiful venue and really did create a lovely atmosphere for civil ceremony.
Team Creative welcome any additional items such as personal touches. Here we have attached a Mr & Mrs sign to the top table draping to add some personalisation for the couple, almost like a home touch.
And then, in the suite of the wedding breakfast we continued the soft neutral scheme with our cappuccino top table drape and matching sashes to Shireburn Arms own wicker chairs for the top table. A lovely touch.
We have also touched up the curtains behind the top table adding swaging across the top to add more texture and co ordination and also bows around the middle to finish off.
Our team work endlessly to make sure every wedding we deliver looks amazing, we treat every wedding as if it is our own and make sure all final touches are perfect ready for your entrance.
We have had our fairy god mother wands at the ready these past few weeks at Stanley House.
We have created beautiful fairy lit beam drapes, backdrops and ceiling drapes.
Below you can see how we have covered the central beams in the Stables Suite and this really does create a lovely atmosphere ready for the Civil Ceremony to start.
This Civil Ceremony also includes our Ivory Aisle Carpet that creates a long runner for the bride to enter the room with Small Ivory Lanterns down each side and co-ordinating petals placed parallel.
And then as we prepared for the Wedding Breakfast we added a Fairy Lit Backdrop to complete the look, this also transforms the room for the meal however keeps the theme incorporated and ties in nicely.
When using the same room for the Civil Ceremony and Wedding Breakfast our Fairy Lit Backdrop is ideal for creating a sense of chance when handing over from one to the other. Also placing it behind the top table adds focus to the room and direction towards the newly wed couple.
As I am sure you will agree, this whole combination looks absolutely beautiful and really does create the atmosphere of a special day to remember forever.
The slight lace detailing in the alternating chair sashes also adds texture and delicacy to the room.
