Tell us a little about yourselves
We are a couple in our early 30s who met at university in Leeds over a shared love of music. We now live in London.
How long was your engagement?
Just 9 months!
What made you choose The Whitby Brunswick Centre as your venue?
As one of us is from the North East and the other from Bristol, we knew our guests would have to travel wherever we decided to get married, so we settled on Whitby as the ideal place to bring our guests to.
We searched every hireable venue in the town and surrounding area without finding the perfect place that suited our hopes for a down to earth, DIY wedding that would accommodate our fairly big guest list of 75+people.
We really wanted to be able to choose our own food, music, and decorations so that we could be
creative and save money at the same time. Then we remembered visiting the Brunswick years earlier for a market fair, and as soon as we found out it could be hired for weddings, we knew we’d found our perfect venue.
Which vendors were involved with your big day & how did you find the service they provided?
Venue: The Brunswick Centre – Just wonderful, all the people we dealt with were so friendly and helpful and the space was fantastic as a truly DIY venue.
Mobile bar: Louisianna’s Mobile Bars – They blew us away, from start to finish their service was impeccable and we highly recommend them.
Catering: Sander’s Yard Bistro – Another amazing vendor, the food was fabulous and catered so well to our range of dietary needs. We got so many wonderful comments on the food.
Photographer: Peter Hugo Photography – Pete was fantastic, his pictures are just out of this world and he was such a reassuring presence on the day, helpful in every way and really helped the day go smoothly.
Videographer: Egg TV – Our videographer was great and cooperated really well with the photographer. We love our wedding film!
Day coordinator: Kook Events – We hired a day-of coordinator (a must for a fully DIY wedding) and we are so glad we did. April kept everything running smoothly on the day without us having to worry or check on anything.
Flowers: The Flowerpot – We DIY’d the venue flowers but our buttonholes and bouquets from The Flowerpot were stunning.
PA system: Esk Audio: We used a self curated playlist and an iPod for our music, and the PA system that was provided as well as the microphones for speeches worked perfectly.
Cake – Marks & Spencer giant caterpillar cakes – these went down a treat.
Groom’s suit: Mod Clothing
We can not thank Fiona and Jack enough for choosing us to be part of their big day and sharing their amazing wedding journey with us.
