Although we are based in Cheshire, we offer venue styling services across the whole of the North West, including Manchester. You only have to walk around Manchester City Centre for five minutes to see that it was an industrial city, as there are many old warehouses and industrial units scattered about. Many of these buildings are now being used for wedding venues, and this is a trend we are really excited about as non-traditional spaces such as these have real personality and are suitable for a vast range of venue styling possibilities. In this article, we have gathered together five of our favourite industrial venue styling options, so you can see which one might be right for you:
Bohemian weddings are getting more and more popular, and this is a trend that works really well in an industrial space. Eclectic decorations and textured fabrics not only add visual interest to large spaces but also add depth as well. If you go with a bohemian theme, you are giving yourself permission to let your free spirit go wild, and display room decorations from floor to ceiling.
To really make your guests say ‘wow’ when they walk into your venue why not go for a major contrast to your theme and plump for earthy industrial which pairs natural details with your industrial space. This theme is all about bringing the outside in, so think lots of plants, masses of greenery and as many botanical details as you can get your hands on. The more variety in your plants the better.
Most venue styling themes tend to focus on filling up your industrial space to make it look completely different but going down the minimalist route instead, focuses on highlighting the beauty of the existing space. You can complement the clean lines by using sleek decoration items such as copper vases, dark wood and single floral stems. The aim is to create visual interest without losing the fact that you are in an industrial setting.
Romantic venue styling is a theme that melts our hearts time after time, with its lush florals, feminine colour palette and vintage-inspired detailing. To make your wedding stand out from the rest search around for descriptions in famous love stories.
People tend to think that rustic weddings have to take place in a barn, but this is not always the case. Abandoned factories and mills, such as the ones we have an abundance of in Manchester, are great for rustic weddings as they naturally have a deconstructed look and vintage feel. Rustic styling tends to focus on wood and lots of it, with lots of natural decoration items thrown in as well.
