brewery wedding

Sam and Stacey planned their wedding in 1 year AND for a great price! Here’s what Stacey told us: 

“We wanted our wedding to be our day completely. It needed to reflect us whilst staying within budget. We did the whole day for £9,000. We got engaged on our 6th anniversary and knew we wanted to be married on our 7th anniversary so we did everything within a year!

We originally had booked a venue that canceled on us 6 weeks before our big day and had to find an alternative. Lucky for us, we ended up with something even better! We saw a picture of the event space in The Belgium Brewer online and couldn’t believe it when it was available. Rather than a formal wedding, we wanted it to be fun and to feel like a night at the pub with your mates, so the brewery was a great fit.

We organized a red double-decker bus with drinks for all the guests to get the party started. We chose our witnesses at random in the ceremony as we couldn’t decide and only invited the people that really mattered.”

We love hearing from couples that want to inject as much personality as possible into their big day. This brewery wedding was no exception: 

“Our inspiration came from not only ourselves because we wanted the day to reflect us, but other weddings from publications that had done things entirely their way.

Knowing it was a wintery date meant we wanted wintery colors – we went for greens, golds + whites. We loved the idea of lots of lights being used as it would be dark early.

We had fairy lights in gin bottles on the table and a big neon sign that was lit up behind the cake table. We wanted lots of greenery so had eucalyptus on the tables and throughout the venue. Most of the decoration was done by us – we wanted simple and not too over the top. We made a ‘best day ever’ banner after seeing them online and a family member also used a pyrography pen and burnt some badgers into some wooden log rounds – the groom’s surname!

 We loved the idea of lots of personal little touches. When we knew the reception would be in a brewery, we also ordered beer mats to match the decor.”

wedding cake

Stacey is a full-time cake maker, so her wedding cake was super important to her. The five-tier cake  was made by  The Mad Batter’s Baked Goods, featuring lots of deep green and gold leaf – it even had a perspex tier filled with succulents! We love how it’s brilliantly alternative but still elegant and stylish.

music & food

Sam’s passion for music ensured the wedding tunes were nothing short of extraordinary. Mike Readings, was DJ and Master Of Ceremonies – he mixed personalised tracks to set the evening’s vibe, keeping everyone dancing all night long. 

With their last-minute venue switch, the couple faced the challenge of finding new caterers. Food was a top priority for them – after all, who wants a wedding where the food isn’t enjoyed? The culinary lineup featured Greek BBQ dishes, followed by jacket potatoes for a cozy and casual evening meal.
