Transforming a restaurant into a wedding venue


When Sheffield girl Natalie planned her wedding with Andy, they both knew that your typical wedding venue wasn't going to be right for them, so they went searching for the right wedding venue for them and they came up with something quite different to the norm. We asked Natalie to share her reasons for picking well-known a city centre restaurant to reception, and asked for a few tips to share with readers on ways to transform a restaurant into the perfect wedding venue..

Platillos wedding

When we decided to book our wedding we knew that we didn't what a typical text book wedding venue. We wanted a venue that complimented our personalities and shared our love of good food and drink. With this in mind we both couldn't think of anywhere better than one of our favourite restaurants, Platillos. An excellent tapas restaurant and cocktail bar in Leopold Square. A wonderful venue to, in the words of Platillos, "share what you love"

city centre wedding in Sheffield

For us Platillos had it all, great food, excellent cocktails, a wonderful restaurant for our breakfast and a great bar area to dance the night away. The big challenge was to make it in to a wedding venue. Although we knew we wanted something different, we also wanted to ensure that no-one forgot they were at a wedding. From the feedback we've received and are still getting 4 months on I'm confident we pulled it off. I'm definitely biased, but holding your wedding in a restaurant is an amazing experience. Here's my top tips on how to do it.

contemporary wedding ideas

contemporary wedding venue in Sheffield

1. Make the restaurant part of your wedding theme Stereotypical chair covers with colour coordinating bows are beautiful in the right place, but in a restaurant they would look out of place. You need to incorporate the style, cuisine and ambience of the restaurant in to your plans. We used the famous Platillos green and red in our invitations. Our bridesmaids were dressed in the same green. Our tables were named after the countries we had shared anspecial memory with friends or enjoyed and amazing meal, and the whole day focused around sharing good food and excellent cocktails. A perfect way of sharing what we love on the most special day of our lives.

2. Less is more We'd picked Platillos not only for the food and drink but for the style of venue. If we'd have filled the restaurant with masses of decorations it would have taken away from its ambience. Instead we used what the restaurant already had and added complimentary touches. Our tables were filled with retro jugs of caipirinha's, olives and platillos own tableware. We simply added colourful mason jars and hand picked mediterranean flowers to finish the tables off. A large centrepiece would definitely have taken away the beauty and simplicity of what was already there.

Platillos Sheffield

3. Get crafty Handmade touches really add something special and bring a personal touch to an already established venue. I have to admit I'm not the most crafty person, but thanks to an amazing Great Aunt the mason jars all had knitted jackets, and I made simple name places using brown envelopes and a box full of buttons. Our table plan (although it didn't go perfectly) was made by the both of us using a world map and luggage labels. These simple touches really put our stamp on the venue and made it much more personal to us.

4. Be organised As I've learnt you need to be organised when planning a wedding, however when having it at a restaurant you need to be even more on the ball. Unlike a hotel where weddings are a weekly occurrence, restaurants don't hold as many weddings, and when they do they are usually very different from the last. Bearing this in mind keep in regular contact with the venue, have a practice run and set a table up how you want it, plan where you want your tables and organise how you want your day to run. I promise this former planning will mean your day runs as smoothly as possible.

unusual Sheffield wedding venue

5. Be yourself My last bit advice speaks for itself. We picked a venue that was 'us'. It showed our friends and family what we loved and gave them the opportunity to share it with us. Wherever you choose to get married, don't feel the need to follow the wedding norms, be yourself and embrace what you both love.
