You’ve got the seed of an idea for your wedding or event; you know the feel you want to create but you just can’t seem to pin down how to make your idea a reality!

This is where we come in.

In this blog post, Stressfree | The Venue Transformers show you how we are able to capture your vision and, starting with an outline sketch, bring it to life.

This was the case with a wedding we helped dress at Trinity Buoy Wharf in London for Liz Linkleter.  Liz runs a full-wedding and event production and design agency. She contacted us with her brief, sent us an image of some dramatic draping, the colour palette she was working with along with a sample of the fabric she wanted to use.

Using this information, Doug drew a couple of sketches. By keeping in mind the dramatic look desired, the fabric we would be working with and drawing on our extensive experience of draping, he was able to come up with a unique design. We tested the look with a couple of practical mock-ups and they worked beautifully.

The final look for this urban London wedding was in keeping with the brief but ensured a look unique to this event. Liz was delighted with the design and so our next job was to make the drapes.

On the day we installed the complete package. We only ever use temporary fixings and always leave a venue as we find it. Trinity Buoy Wharf is a Grade II listed building and as such this approach was extremely important to ensure that the beams in the building were protected.

The final look was striking, full of drama and exactly what the couple had imagined.
