I’m often being asked if a village hall wedding is feasible. It’s great on the purse strings, but a village hall is a blank canvas. It can be difficult to style skillfully (and inexpensively) and I often have brides wondering what kind of an impact they can really make. So I really wanted to show you these pictures. Kirsten from Little Wedding Helper specialises in bespoke venue and marquee styling and recently styled a gorgeous village hall wedding. Here’s Kirsten to tell you all about how she decorated the hall. Pictures by Dawn Wilkins.
“The wedding was between Louise Boulter & Sam Wilkins on Saturday 24th September 2011. They met at the Wimbledon School of Art where they were both doing fine art degrees. They chose Westbury-on-Trym Village hall as it could accomadate their 130 guests, was close to their family homes & was affordable”
“Run by volunteers, a lot of the decoration and styling has to be done by the couples themselves which can be too much to do or cope with when you want to relax the night before & enjoy the build up to the big day!”
“I enjoyed every minute of styling this wedding with bunting, vintage china that had been collected by the families & flowers from the local flower market. Cupcakes were made by the brides friends & doubled up as a favour & place name!! It really was a relaxed & beautiful wedding reception to style & thank you to Dawn Wilkins of for the photographs.”
