How to transform a venue for your dream wedding

On first sight, the run-down local rugby club set in the middle of a concrete car park looks less than desirable for the big wedding day you’ve been dreaming about. Unfortunately, the hefty price tags of the beautiful barn conversions and magnificent manor houses you’ve been viewing have abruptly burst that bubble, and now that concrete building with its £75 price for venue hire, flexibility of self-catering and the £2 gin and tonics is suddenly looking a lot more appealing.

Well, have no fear, there is still light at the end of the tunnel, and your vision of a Pinterest-worthy wedding venue is still possible. In fact, it’s a lot more possible than you think!

We have just finnished one of our favorite events of the year transforming the Celtic Manor's Exhibition Hall into a festival space for 600 corporate clients. This included a paid of 3m oak trees 250sqm of artificial grass, picnic benches, bunting and hundreds of metres of festoon lighting. We also supplied tents for the catering areas.

We have joined up with The Christmas Decorators to offer our customers a stunning range of festive displays,
we can provide single trees for an office reception or home through to large installations for hotels, restaurants,
retail and leisure venues. Bringing The Christmas Decorators to South Wales enables us to combine industry leading
products and practises with a local personalised service.

Due to huge demand we have added lime wash chiavari chairs to our hire stock, a great alternative to chair covers at last!

We also have exclusive Laura Ashley Print pads to replace the standard ivory pads. These work perfectly for the vintage, shabby chic looks that are oh so popular at the moment.
