No wedding is complete without those extra special pieces which will truly wow your guests. Of course, your chosen venue plays a huge part when it comes to creating individuality and personality. Our venue for example, offers couples the choice of 6 unique spaces to dress in whichever way they like, whether it be timeless and traditional, or quaint and quirky! Your reception room is your playground; decide on a style with your partner and fill it with items that capture one another’s personalities.
However simple your interior may be, decorations can turn your wedding day into the celebration that you have always dreamed of. For example, our Chapel is a truly stunning environment complete with high ceilings, wooden pews and a mezzanine floor, you really don’t need a lot to accentuate the beauty of this place! We provide our couples with the beautiful white flower arrangements, but decorations such as candles and lanterns can be added as personal touches.

Before you make your way to craft shops or start filling your online baskets, you must first highlight what you need to decorate and/or hire. Visit your venue on upcoming open days or organise a meeting with your planner and make a note of what you need. Here are a few things for you to think about:
Our Pavilion – Chair covers, centrepieces, floristry by Aura Design
Almost everything you will write down on your list will be available in a whole host of colours! Once you have your colour scheme sorted, which often falls in line with bridesmaids’ dresses, the finer details and decisions will become easier. Couples also choose colours depending on the season; we see more rich colours such as deep purples and reds in the winter, whereas in the summer we see more soft peaches and blush pinks. The above image is our pavilion; a spacious room which is a blank canvas which our couples love! It can be decorated to fit in with any colour scheme.
Seasonality also helps when choosing the smaller details too – favours or place names for example. Favours often have a personal meaning to couples as they symbolise a ‘thank you’ to the guests, a gift which guests can take with them. This could be a traditional pouch of sugared almonds, personalised lollipops or even handmade soaps! The possibilities are endless and are completely unique to you.
