The Brewery wedding
The Brewery wedding venue London
If you said to someone, the reception is at the brewery, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was being hosted with the sole intention of drinking up all the lager, ale and cider in the cellar. You would however, be completely surprised to find yourself in the height of sophistication in central London, far from a cask filled cellar. The brewery is in fact one of central London’s premier wedding venues, and watching the staff work, it lives up to it’s reputation. The space itself is well suited to weddings on a grander scale without the need to turn the room around in the evening to create space for a dance floor. This is a big win as for any of you who have been to a wedding before where the breakfast room has to be turned around will know, namely because the guests can hear the band warming up and sound checking. At the brewery, no such problem, the band have to be in, set up and ready to play well in advance of the wedding breakfast making the whole transition into the evening seamless, the speeches end, the tables are cleared, the band are on.
If you’re looking for incredible evening entertainment, look no further than the souljets. These guys are immense. My second photographer on the day and I looked at the rig set up on stage and in unison said ‘this is going to be big’. Drums, brass, male and female vocals, these guys had the whole gamut of musical entertainment covered. One thing that really stood out was the effort they had put into crafting the stage so it looked incredible. An understanding of the performance from top to bottom was oh so evident, and the whole evening oozed class. Put on top of that an amazing performance with an interactive crowd and you have all of the ingredients for an awesome evening, scroll down and check out the pictures.
Children played a big part in this wedding, and thankfully so, they brought a lightness to proceedings with their smiles and general larking about. Maybe i’m getting older and a little bit more broody, but there was something lovely about watching cousins play together without a care in the world. Giggles, cuddles and then the resulting naps, children are quite cute aren’t they? Check out the photos to see just how cute. What would I call my child(ren)? Maximus? Asembaird? Barry? – you don’t get many ‘baby Barry’s’ anymore do you?
Despite the brewery nearly stealing the show, it would be remiss of me not to mention the amazing cathedral hiding in plain site that is the gorgeous St.Etheldreda’s. Saint who you say? Etheldrada…I didn’t know either. Whoever she is she inspired a most dramatic cathedral that has got to be a contender for the ‘best ceremony light’ award. There is a HUGE stained glass window at the south side of the church and when the sun comes out the entire space is bathed in the most glorious light. It.Is.Epic. It’s incredibly easy to see how people become inspired or reach enlightenment in these most glorious of spaces, it truly is awe inspiring. The building is open day to day, go and check it out, it’s beautiful.
