Taylor Lynn Corporation Announces Sponsorship of Sell-Out Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2017


For the first time, events management company the Taylor Lynn Corporation (TLC) has been announced as one of the sponsors of the sell-out Stadium Events & Hospitality Awards 2017.  Taking place on June 1, 2017 at Anfield, Liverpool Football Club, the 480 guests will include representatives from stadium venues across the UK and Ireland and they will be treated to an extraordinary evening including a fine dining four-course menu, awards ceremony, entertainment and on-site party until 4am.  And with just five tickets remaining, the event is the biggest in its 13-year history.


TLC will be responsible for organising the room décor and entertainment for the event, in a sponsorship deal that not only emphasises the innovative contribution that the company makes to stadium events, with TLC’s clients in the sector including Chelsea FC, UEFA, African Player of the Year Awards and Manchester United FC, but also cements TLC’s position as one of the leading stadium event management companies in the UK. 


Commenting on the evening and the sponsorship deal, Liz Taylor, managing director of TLC, said: “We were delighted to have been asked to be a sponsor of this prestigious night.  Over the last few years we have worked with various stadiums and football clubs in creating and managing some fantastic events, and have consolidated our position as one of the ‘go to’ events management companies within the sports sector.


“The sponsorship is a natural step forward for us and fits perfectly with our plans for expansion in this area.  The nature of stadium events means there’s a lot of pressure to deliver not only a spectacular event, but also on the reputation of the specific club.


“The awards night will be fabulous event for everyone concerned, and I’m particularly pleased to be organising the entertainment and room décor, as both are very close to my heart and are two areas that as company, we excel in every time!!!  And in true TLC style, we’ve got a few spectacular surprises awaiting the guests.”


Debbie Rigney, marketing & PR manager for Stadium Experience who organises the awards, said:

“2017 is breaking all previous attendance records. Historically, we have welcomed around 280 guests from stadium venues across the UK & Ireland. Last year, we saw huge growth to 365 guests at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. To grow this figure by a further this year 30% is just fantastic. We look forward to recognising and celebrating the amazing work of all of these stadium venue teams at Anfield on 1st June.”


The remaining few tickets start from £85 per person. For more information on the awards, and to purchase the tickets, please visit

This Morning Wedding Dilemmas

This Morning Wedding Dilemmas

Liz was thrilled to have appeared on ITV This Morning today, where she answered viewers questions and wedding dilemmas live on air!

wedding dilemmas

Here are a few wedding dilemmas that Liz is asked about most often, and her suggestions!

1. How do I tell guests we are having a child-free celebration?

Make it clear on the invitation that the night is ‘exclusively for grown-ups’ – and give guests extra notice to arrange babysitters. I usually make such a wedding a black tie affair too, which is a good indicator of the style of wedding you have chosen, and getting married later in the day is helpful so that guests only need to arrange a babysitter for the evening,

2. Can I ask my bridesmaids to pay for their own dresses?

If finances dictate, then yes, But have this conversation face to face and choose bridesmaids that will understand your financial predicament.  Explain that your budget is very limited, but be clear that you are happy for them to wear a dress that they can buy from the High Street and then wear again.  You can’t expect them to fund a designer dress or bespoke bridesmaids dress. Many retailers now offer affordable options that are just as stylish and lots of bridesmaids would be happier in something they have chosen themselves anyway!

3. How do I tell people they are not invited to our wedding if they assume they are?

I suggest a ‘save the date’ card be sent out as soon as wedding plans are underway, which can often avoid this awkward situation as those not receiving a card will assume that they are not on the guest list for the big day.  You can explain that although you would love to have them at the wedding, you are limited on places to close family and friends and that you have had to make very difficult decisions on who to invite and who you are not able to share the day with.   

4. What should we do if our parents are hijacking our guest list?

Be strong, it is your day!  But also be sensitive to the fact that they may want to share your big day with their friends too.  Explain that you want to ensure there is a good balance of guests from both sides of the family your friends, colleagues etc. and agree a certain number of invites that they can extend.  Let your parents plan the seating arrangements at the table where their friends will be, so that they feel involved in the planning too.

5. How do I tell friends they are invited to the evening reception only?

Most people chat about the wedding plans with friends, so it will generally come out in conversation but if not, let your invitation do the work.  Send out invitations to evening guests that are clear about attendance times and the fabulous party they have been invited to.  I also suggest a note in some invitations that explain who else you have invited that your friends may know.  It reassures them that other friends are also attending at the same time and encourages attendance.
