It has never been so popular to stray away from traditional wedding venues and opt for something a little more unique and interesting. Beaches, warehouses, art galleries, barns and even breweries are the new Princess Castle of wedding venues. Raw spaces, as they are referred to are ever more impressive to wedding guests, especially when the happy couple decorate them to suit their personal style. The dream of DIY decor and moody lighting can sometimes be overshadowed by the absolute necessity of preventative maintenance services. Hiring this service to carry out planned maintenance checks is vital to ensure nothing disastrous happens to the big day, for example a flood or surprise power cut.
‘Tis the Season
Whether you’re planning a winter wonderland in a restored barn or a summer garden festival in a large marquee then you must be prepared for all weather – especially in the UK. Anderson Property Services suggest hiring a property maintenance company to carry out checks and install correct heating or cooling, facilities to ensure the venue is comfortable for all guests. A property maintenance company, such as Anderson Property Services can review the venue, anticipate any issues and put fixes in place to avoid accidents or high costs in the run up to the event.
Amidst the cloud of picking and planning the dress, the rings, the cake… and the hen night, many wedding parties forget some basic but important implementations to ensure an enjoyable and stress free day. Here are our top 3 important things to remember for a fabulous day in your quirky, unique wedding venue:
Lighting is key in creating the perfect ambience. Raw or outdoor spaces will probably need lightening installed for the evening reception. Atmospheric lightening instead of harsh LED bulbs are absolutely the way forward for a romantic and aesthetically appealing evening. Candles and small ‘fairy lights’ draped across ceilings and over walls and even more sturdy light fittings can be put in place by property maintenance companies like Anderson Property Services.
If you choose an art gallery or brewery as your favourite wedding venue then it is more than likely they already have toilet facilities installed However if you prefer a venue such as a beach/ beach hut, converted barn or an old warehouse for example there are probably no toilet facilities available – which is obviously a disaster. Anderson Property Services suggest hiring a property maintenance company or facilities management company to put in place temporary lavatories – easy!
3. Kitchen Space
The same again, some venues probably have some where for catering staff to prepare and serve the wedding breakfast. However if, for example you are having your wedding in a marquee on a beach or in a field then you obviously have to consider no kitchen facilities. It may be ideal to hire a mobile caterer who already has a portable kitchen facility to prepare and cook the meal. You could also consider a casual barbecue or sandwich picnic – this will get extra quirky points!
