How to decorate a village hall
Deciding how to decorate your venue is an exciting yet daunting prospect. Different types of venues will require different decorations. If you are having your reception at a manor house, you could add details to complement the existing décor, whereas you have a blank canvas when it comes to decorating a marquee or barn, but how do you decorate a village hall? Village halls are perfect for holding your wedding reception; they tend to be very spacious with high ceilings, which are great for adding details to. However, with all that space, it can be difficult to envisage how you want it to look. To give you decorating ideas, stylist Lindsey Hunter shares how she styled St Boswells village hall in the Scottish Borders.

One venue, two gorgeous seasonal reception looks
Here at Y&YW we're passionate about amazing food that'll wow guests. That's why we're sharing this beautiful shoot from Aynhoe Park today, which was inspired by the sumptuous seasonal menus created by the venue's caterers Indulgence Boutique Catering. "We wanted to showcase what's available in food and florals for each season," say the team. "Dishes should always be visual and colourful. Garnishes such as edible flowers for the summer and blackberries for autumn aren't expensive, but look beautiful."
