How to Decorate a Large Wedding Venue?

Decorating a large capacity wedding venue can seem like a daunting task, however some quick tricks will help you feel less overwhelmed. Laura Horwell from large wedding venue Sandon Hall advises, "Using consistent colour, florals and dressing throughout the space and the whole event. This allows clients to create continuity and flow throughout the whole celebration."

How to Fill a Large Wedding Venue?

There are few things that look worse in a large function room than large empty spaces. In order to avoid this, Laura has some words of wisdom for nearlyweds,  "Use the space wisely, don't push tables and chairs too closely together which allows for a much more comfortable experience. Also, we love florals and candles - it's the perfect way to keep a space fresh and light."

How to Make a Large Wedding Venue Feel Intimate?

Wondering how to make a large wedding look smaller? 

We get it, sometimes, the bigger the space, the more impersonal it can feel. However, Laura reassures that this can easily be avoided. She says,  "Include everyone! Our venue has the most beautiful staircase and we start off the wedding breakfast with the most fabulous entrance of our wedding couples.

"By choosing an upbeat song & asking everyone who can to be standing and cheering for our newlyweds, it really makes everyone a part of such a special moment on the day."
