Weddings & Parties

Paintworks Event Space is a stunning blank canvas venue, perfect for individual and creative weddings, parties and celebrations. We can host marriages, civil partnerships, blessings and receptions and we fully embrace social diversity.

Currently booking 2024 and 2025 dates. Special discounted rates on last available dates in July and August 2024 for Receptions, get in touch to find out more!


The scale of this industrial space, with its high ceilings, exposed brick and stonework and stylish outside courtyards make a perfect backdrop to a contemporary wedding venue. Stylish, upbeat and effortlessly cool, the space works best for 90-200 guests and for couples who want to create a look and feel that’s true to them!

"The Wedding was absolutely amazing.... we had the best day. The Paintworks looked as good as the weather! We got so many comments from our guests about how great the venue was.

We can't thank you, Fay and Jess enough for everything you have done for us, we could not be happier with how it went, it was definitely worth waiting 3 years for."

Paintworks Event Space has been hosting wedding ceremonies and receptions since 2007, and no two weddings here have ever been the same! Holding the ceremony and reception in the same venue can reduce expense and the hassle that comes from moving all the wedding guests from one location to another, but we do also host just receptions for couples choosing to celebrate here with friends and family after tying the knot elsewhere!

Private Parties

The Event Space is also available for private parties for birthdays, anniversaries and engagements making for a really memorable occasion.

''We would like to say a huge thank you for all of your help on the run up to our big day as well as on the day itself. We had the most wonderful day and couldn't have chosen a better venue, it looked absolutely magical all lit up! The ceremony felt incredibly intimate - it was just what we wanted. We couldn't have organised it without your help and advice so thank you for all of that.''

Sarah and Matt


"Thank you seems like too small a word for what you did for us. You made our dreams come true on Saturday and we had the wedding we had always pictured, so thank you!"
