The Bonded Warehouse has been featured in Rock N Roll Bride magazine as Liz and Marc got married here last September and were broadly featured in the magazine Rock n roll Bride! They tell us that they had a fantastic wedding day and are recommending the venue to their friends for which we are most appreciative.
Liz has kindly provided some of her favourite photos from the Bonded Warehouse and our official Rockstar vendor badge!
Their ceremony was held in the Thomas Robinson Building, which despite being a refurbished chapel is also a registry office, complete with beautiful stained glass windows and gorgeous chandeliers. Newly married, Liz and Marc spilled into the gorgeous sunshine to the tune of Pulp’s Disco 2000, with their guests blowing bubbles instead of throwing confetti.
The wedding party then moved on to The Bonded Warehouse, a beautiful redbrick venue overlooking the canal. “We knew that the industrial-style graffiti-ed abandoned buildings would suit us down to a TEE, and loved its setting on its little cobbled street. I sing in a band called The Rose Birds, and my wonderful bandmates (and big brothers!) played a set for us outside on the cobbles. We danced next to the canal in glorious sunshine to Dolly Parton and The Strokes covers!”
After the wonderful speeches and food, the wedding party went and boarded a canal boat for an hour before the evening guests were to arrive. Liz said that the atmosphere on the boat was fantastic as they danced to live music from the incredibly talented Esther Turner whilst enjoying drinks from the on-board bar. Ken, the boatman, was described as “an absolute legend” and dressed the boat beautifully for them. Finally the party got off at the lock for photos with everyone singing along to Montell Jordan’s This Is How We Do It down the canal – this being one of their highlights of their special day!”
Of course the Bonded Warehouse is very pleased to have played a small part in making Liz and Marc’s wedding day memorable and proud to have been featured in the magazine – a first for us!
We give heartiest congratulations to Liz and Marc and wish them all the very best for their future together and hope to see them again in the near future.
