The Valli family are known for their stunningly elegant events and Bilal’s Walima at Platinum Suite has to be one of our favourites! Working at large spacious venues like the Platinum Suite can be daunting, as you really need to consider how to fill the space, create impact and make a statement. We chose black, gold and white as 3 bold colours to work with – they are super fashionable colours that are great for evening reception décor. The Platinum Suite was transformed for this 1 night – it was almost unrecognisable!
The black and white draped backdrop for the Walima stage had small gold indian touches with ornate jali pillars. The wide stage and tiered steps to the Walima backdrop created such drama in the room – you couldn’t help but to be mesmerised by it. There were candles everywhere you could see to create a magical sparkle in the room. Candle table centres are so great with a black and white theme. The table centres were spectacular; a mix of tall gold floral table centres, tall black candle table centres, long tables with candles, each and every one of them decorated with crystals and petals. Walkways for weddings these days need not just consist of pillars and flowers! We went with a draped ceiling with chandeliers hanging from them, which led beautifully up to the stage. We have endless new ideas for walkways – look out for them in future blogs! Platinum Suite is well known for big weddings in Leicester. With 800 people attending the wedding, we’ve been told by so many guests that they haven’t seen the venue so different in a long time – thanks to everyone for the lovely compliments! We’d like to thank the Valli family for booking us and wish Bilal and Ayesha, the warmest wedding wishes.
