Following a rebrand in November 2012, The Brewery has launched a new brand, Proposal, for its wedding offering. Proposal reflects the unique history of the venue and how, along with its East London roots, it makes a beautiful location for contemporary weddings. A microsite for Proposal stems from The Brewery’s website and has launched to create a streamlined experience for pre-nuptial clients.

To support this, The Brewery has also appointed Amélie Avian as the new wedding co-ordinator. Working with the experienced team at The Brewery, Amélie will support couples from their initial enquiry through to their first dance. Each wedding package is tailored to the specific requirements, budget and preferences of the bride & groom.

Tom Gore, executive chef at The Brewery, will develop a bespoke menu and invite the couple to a private tasting experience, ensuring that the food served on their special day is to individual tastes. Tom is passionate about pushing the boundaries of what is expected and creates simple food that will wow guests, such as a prawn cocktail served alongside a Bloody Mary sorbet or skate tempura served with apple tapioca and crushed parsnip.

Formerly Whitbread Brewery, the venue has a distinct personality and this is reflected in their wedding offering. From the bride’s entrance through the 18th century cobbled courtyard, the betrothed can choose between six spaces for their nuptials. The Porter Tun, a large, striking room with an exposed King Post timber roof and an antique wooden floor, can accommodate 1000 guests. The King George III and the Queen Charlotte are both stunning rooms with exposed brickwork, barrel vaulted ceilings and royal connections, for up to 300 and 200 guests respectively. There are two split spaces at The Brewery; The Upper & Lower Sugar Rooms overlook the courtyard with floor to ceiling windows and combined provide space for 120 guests. The Smeaton Vaults, which used to store beer, are adjacent airy rooms accommodating 110 people. For intimate ceremonies, the charming James Wyatt can host up to 75 guests.

Creative director at The Brewery, Simon Lockwood said: “Proposal is an exciting development for us, and solidifies The Brewery’s position as an all-round events venue. Bringing Amélie on board has helped us ensure the launch of Proposal, and the brand itself, is seamless and stunning. We wanted to create a platform that offers both the bride & groom a quirky, yet classic brand to help them design their perfect day.”

Amélie Avian, wedding co-ordinator at The Brewery, said: “Proposal is a truly different approach, and couples will have a unique and very personal experience. I look forward to helping create stunning ceremonies and receptions, and ensuring that weddings run smoothly and provide lasting memories for newly-weds and guests.”
