Welcome to Aswanley, Aberdeenshire…

Aswanley is a secluded estate on the edge of the Highlands in Aberdeenshire, which offers the flexibility and space to create a truly individual wedding day.

The 16th Century fortified house and gardens provide a magical backdrop for your wedding, and once the formalities are over the Victorian steading is the ultimate place to celebrate.

Aswanley has been a much loved family home for generations, and have many years experience entertaining friends and guests at Aswanley, so they really do understand what makes a great party… and therefore a great venue!

The venue can be styled as much or as little as you want. The steading has been beautifully renovated with an authenticity that provides a strong foundation to style your own wedding – an elegant oak bar, an enormous baronial stone fireplace, pine beams and cast iron cartwheel chandeliers – just some of the features that make this venue distinctive.  The venue looks great dressed for a rustic, vintage or a classic occasion.

You will have exclusive use of the wedding venue and the flexibility and space to plan your wedding reception as you wish. Louise, the Venue Co-ordinator will be on hand throughout the planning process to offer advice and ideas – if you need it.

Oh… hop across to the gallery!

Welcome to The Brewery, London…

With the emphasis on personality and originality, The Brewery can be found in the heart of the City.

This venue occupies the site of the former Whitbread brewery in East London.

Within a few years Whitbread’s brewery had become a vast operation, its sheer size making it an attraction worthy of royal visits. George III, Queen Charlotte, Queen Elizabeth II and Elizabeth the Queen Mother all visited. Brewing on the site continued until 1976, the last tanker pulling out of the South Yard on April 13, bringing to an end a 225-year era.

So, with history, character and a great range of unique, adaptable spaces, The Brewery really is the perfect City Chic wedding venue.

Working alongside trusted friends of The Brewery, Amelie (your Wedding Coordinator extraordinaire!) can help you piece together all the different parts of your wedding – from decor to DJ’s and flowers!

All the spaces at The Brewery have LED lighting to enhance the mood of your wedding or tailor to a specific colour scheme. They also feature a built in PA system for speeches and wi-fi for those important Facebook updates and tweets.

This really is one heck of a party venue as the wedding licence covers every room within The Brewery allowing your wedding ceremony and reception on-site for between 40 and 1,000 guests!
