How to transform a huge blank space into something that’s fit for a wedding or a “WOW” event? It’s something that I come across so many times and fills people with dread as to where to start.
Firstly, don’t panic! Below are some of my tips for dealing with that blank canvas.
1. Break up the space– try and visualise different pockets of activity throughout the space. For example; there could be a chill out lounge in one space (try my hay bale lounge look), a catering area, a dance floor & space for the band. Before you know it, the space will no longer feel that daunting. Use foliage and trees to provide a natural divide between these spaces.
Finally, I’m excited to share the latest photos from a rustic Spring wedding I styled and provided props for back in April. Simple, understated but so divine!
As the bride’s nickname was “bee” by her hubby to be, we thought we’d thread this look into all elements across the wedding; honeycomb shelving on top of the homemade palletwood bar, a gorgeous homemade cake with honeycomb patterns topped with its own felt bee and hand stamped bee invites on luggage tags.
OK ok so you you usually see it stacked up on some industrial estate rotting in a pile amongst some old disused tyres and a load of old scrap metal but I can really see some beauty in these pallets. Yes really! I honestly get such a thrill of making something that people write off as ugly and useless into a bit of a wow.
So this leads me to talk about our pallet wood seating for hire. Living on a farm, we’re not short of space so we have a huge amount of these bad boy seating areas for hire. I think they’re absolutely perfect for all types of events; dressed up smartly for weddings, draped with sheepskins for a festival or barn wedding.
So I’m excited about an event I’m attending in a few days called The Hub, organised by the lovely lady Kiki who also organises the Chosen Wedding Fair; these super stylish, fun and alternative wedding fairs that everyone in the industry raves about.
The Hub is described as a “one day escape into an inspirational and supportive space” Blimey, can I book in for a week?! The reason I’m excited is that I get to hear from a whole host of the top talents in the wedding industry and dare I hope to meet some of them too.
It’s tough when you’re setting up a
