Weddings & Parties

Paintworks Event Space is a stunning blank canvas venue, perfect for individual and creative weddings, parties and celebrations.

 

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 80-200 guests and for couples who want to create a look and feel that’s true to them!

 

"Just wanted to say a massive thanks for the weekend, it was absolutely wonderful and we loved every minute!

You guys were amazing and made the day perfect for us, and we can’t thank you or recommend you enough.

Thanks again for being so amazing and for all your hard work on the day... and hopefully see you soon for another party at Paintworks!"

Lila and Andy - 2018

  • Stunning and versatile blank canvas venue which can be styled to create your perfect wedding
  • A dedicated and experienced Event team to help plan and manage your big day
  • Two beautiful adjoining outdoor courtyards for drinks receptions
  • Fantastic in-house caterer and bar company
  • Fully licensed for weddings and civil ceremonies
  • Amazing, quirky on-site photo locations
  • Free on-site parking for up to 50 cars
  • Close to City Centre, excellent transport links and local accommodation

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 just wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you for everything. We had such a good day and a lot of that was down to you and all the help you and everyone else at Paintworks gave us. Everyone loved the venue and we've had loads of compliments for it. You really took a lot of the stress out of the day and we felt we could relax and have fun because we knew you guys were so on top of things so thank you so much for that!”

“We loved having our wedding at the Paintworks, the fact that the space is a blank canvas and you can pretty much do what you want is really unique. Michele was really great leading up the day with help with seating plans, suppliers and useful info and reassuring to have on the day to make sure everything ran smoothly!”
