Shoreditch Studios can create a bespoke package for everything you need for your wedding. They can recommend or help you book all suppliers including caterers, furniture, décor, lighting, bar, photographers and more. You are also welcome to work with a wedding planner or shop around and book your own wedding suppliers. They also welcome couples to BYO drinks.
A dry hire venue or ‘dry hire wedding’ refers to hiring a venue as a blank canvas or empty space rather than an all-inclusive venue hire and catering package. At Shoreditch Studios, you have the option to dry hire and design your bespoke wedding and work with any caterer, furniture or bar. We can also help you find and book all of your wedding suppliers or introduce you to a wedding planner.
In response to COVID-19 virus and UK Government lockdown policies, we have updated our venue hire contract to allow you to reschedule your wedding date to within 12 months of the original date if required with no costs incurred.
Yes, if you want to manage your bar, you can hire in a bar structure and BYO alcohol and non-alcoholic drinks. We can help with hiring a bar structure and staff. One of your bar staff will need to have a personal licence. Alternatively, you can speak to one of our recommended caterers to discuss a bespoke catering and bar package to fit with your budget or work out a cash bar system.
We can provisionally hold dates until another client enquires about the date. When holding a date we will inform you whether you are the first pencil (1st option), or second pencil (2nd option) on that date. We operate a first-come, first-served policy with regards to putting any pencils on dates. If you are 2nd option on a date and ready to put down a deposit and sign a contract, and the 1st option cannot do so within 24hrs, then you can secure the date.
We are now able to host viewings by appointment with face masks and social distancing for couples who can safely attend. For couples unable to attend, we are conducting virtual tours via Zoom.
