Alicia and Chris held their wedding at The Biscuit Factory last summer. The couple said their vows in our gallery surrounded by our beautiful collection of artwork, before heading through to The Biscuit Room for their meal and celebrations. Here, we catch up with the couple to find out more about their wedding and why their guests were "blown away"...
Why did you choose The Biscuit Factory?
We knew right from the start that we weren’t looking for a ‘typical’ wedding venue. The Biscuit Factory stood out as soon as I came across some photographs of the gallery on a local photographer’s page; it was exactly what we were looking for.
What set The Biscuit Factory apart from other venues you considered?
We wanted a venue which was bright, modern and unique. We had a great feeling about the venue right form the start and when we went for our first viewing, we fell in love with the gallery. We were also really impressed by the wide range of food and drink options. The whole service was very personalised and it made us feel that the day would truly be ‘ours’ rather than a package that’s offered to every couple who marry at that venue.
Focusing on the venue itself, what was the most memorable aspect on your wedding day?
Although the gallery itself was beautiful for our ceremony, our most memorable moment was walking into The Biscuit Room for the first time. Everything we had imagined had come together perfectly and it looked amazing.
How would you describe the service you received from the events team in the lead up to, and on, the day itself?
The service from the events team was excellent and Tom, (the Events Manager) in particular was outstanding. I had a few wobbles during the planning process about the arrangements and he was completely understanding, always going above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. He really made the planning process much easier and less stressful.
What feedback did you receive about the venue?
Our guests were blown away by the gallery and The Biscuit Room, we had many say how beautiful they thought the gallery was and how stunning The Biscuit Room looked when we went through for the reception. Our guests raved about the food in particular. Many have said that it’s the best wedding food they have ever had. This was great to hear as food was a very important part of our big day, from the delicious buffet to our biscuit table (which went down a treat!).
Describe The Biscuit Factory in three words.
Elegant. Modern. Unique.
