It's an honour to be trusted by so many couples to host the most important and exciting day of their lives. We work hard to ensure couples who get married in our venues are not only satisfied with the venue, but that we exceed any expectations they may have.
After the wedding day and honeymoon are over, we reach out to couples to share their honest thoughts on how we performed as a venue and the effectiveness of our staff and suppliers. Thanks to all the couples for sharing their honest feedback. Here are some of the recent couple testimonials we have received.
Lorna & Liam
"We were so pleased when we found Shoreditch Studios for our wedding. We wanted to find a dry hire venue that allowed us to bring in our own suppliers and to get creative. The exposed brick, arches and white walls all provided the perfect blank canvas and the two studios gave us the flexibility we needed without having to interrupt the day by ‘turning over’ the rooms.
It was a bonus that the Studios are regularly used for events, meaning that their team managed the process with ease and were very accommodating with our often strange requests and with all our suppliers. We had the most amazing day- thank you!"
Lauren & Mark
"We met in London and have lived our entire relationship here so we always knew there was no where else that would feel right when we got married. We were recommended Kachette by a close friend. It ticked all the boxes. Located in an old Underground station, it had two amazing exposed brick arches, was right in the middle of Shoreditch, close to the Town Hall and had bags of character.
The venue had two separate rooms, we could have the wedding breakfast in one Arch and the party in the other without people having to hang around during set up. We were also able to extend the license until 2am so we didn’t have to stop the party early which was also big thing for us."
Lucy & Michael
“We knew we had to find a London venue, both of us being from here. The other main requirement was that it needed to be a black canvas space, where we could do dry hire and supply everything ourselves.
We viewed a couple of beautiful spaces, but they were a bit too prim and proper for us, so when we walked into Shoreditch Studios with its exposed brick and archways, we were immediately sold.
We had actually been to an event there, years ago, but seeing it completely clear, we knew we had so much space to work with! It also had an outside courtyard, which we loved, as it can be hard to get outside spaces in urban London venues.”
Sophie & Mike
" We both live in Hackney and felt very strongly we wanted to get married somewhere close to home and we really didn’t want people to have to travel far and spend money on accommodation. We both really like industrial architecture, so we were looking at warehouses and halls, however, an outside area was important which was why Shoreditch Studios were perfect.
The venue was a blank canvas and we didn’t need to do much to make it look amazing. We both love colour so the paper lanterns were the perfect option. It dropped the ceiling to make the meal more intimate and the look was exactly what we wanted. Our invites had a Tandem bike on it and my Father found one to hang from the ceiling as a surprise. The S&M were made by a family friend as a wedding gift, I really wanted some light up letters at our wedding but they were too expensive to buy, they looked amazing behind the band for the party."
Tory & Jonny
"An enormous thank you to The Wedding Arrangers and your wonderful team at Shoreditch Studios for making our wedding so perfect! The venue looked stunning and the day worked seamlessly. The food and drinks were also fantastic."
Emma & Scot
"I would really recommend a dry-hire venue like Shoreditch Studios if you want to create something completely personal for the two of you. It was amazing being able to have complete control over the whole day – a lot of work, but so worth it.”
Hannah & Chris
"After looking at many unsuitable London wedding venues, Shoreditch Studios felt like our saviour. It ticked all boxes. We loved the urban / industrial type feel, combined with its location and having outside space.
The fact that it is licensed for ceremonies was a massive lure for us as we are non religious but didn't really like the old fashioned registry office look. The staff were brilliant, really responsive and had plenty of advice and contacts for putting on a brilliant day."
Ailsa & Ben
“The wedding had an East London vibe with graffiti elements. Our backdrop for the main room at the reception was a projection of a piece of graffiti we created in Paris, where Ben proposed exactly one year previously. We both have a passion for art and graffiti, so we tried to bring than in.
Shoreditch Studios looked great as a blank canvas. We received a lot of comments about the individuality of the day, the warehouse venue, the black dress, the Bavarian beer house dining arrangement, the mass-karaoke sing-a-long in the evening. Many people said they’d never been to a wedding like ours..”
Kate & Richard
“Shoreditch Studios fitted exactly what we wanted as a reception venue; it had a lovely courtyard space as well as a cool interior, exposed brickwork, under the railway arches- it has an edgy feel and was a great space.
We didn’t want somewhere that “did” weddings, we wanted a blank canvas we could make our own.”
Joanna & Peter
“In terms of our wedding venue we wanted somewhere a bit unconventional with both character and history. Peter and I were both keen to have quite an industrial feel to the reception and loved Shoreditch Studios as soon as we went for a viewing. Andrew and Dan were awesome throughout; easy-going but responsive and incredibly helpful.”
Lauren & Chris
"We are so pleased we chose Shoreditch Studios to host our wedding. All our guests commented on what a great venue it really was! We really can’t thank you guys enough. Fab venue, fab team!!"
Anne & Chris
"Thanks to Rock My Wedding, we discovered Shoreditch Studios. We knew Shoreditch Studios fitted the bill perfectly. Dan, Andrew, Maree and the whole team were open to all of our ideas (even the crazy ones!) and were incredibly flexible and supportive."
Smriti & David
"We have lived in Shoreditch for years and spend all our free time here, the venue was 5 minutes from our flat. It’s a photography studio so provided a perfect blank canvas for us to do what we wished. The venue is split into two studios, we had the drinks reception and dancing in studio 2 decorated in an Indian style, lots of beautiful draping and wonderful lighting."
Laura & Andrew
"We wanted to find a venue that suited us both, where we could hold both the ceremony and reception. A fairytale wedding filled us both with dread. What we wanted was a blank canvas to make our own and found this in Kachette, an incredible studio space in Shoreditch. The venue is the former ticket hall of Shoreditch Underground Station. An industrial, gallery-like space, it had an incredible simplicity and modernist aesthetic that was just irresistible."
