The Workshop has the option of providing the perfect set up for your ceremony, to allow all your formalities in the one easy location without requiring your guests to travel. We set the venue up beautifully for your ceremony with all seating required, then while you are off getting your beautiful photos taken, your guests are invited for refreshments at your private bar and we draw the black velvet curtains to magically transform the space into your reception.
Alternatively, you can host your ceremony at Broadway Chapel, less than 2 minutes drive down the road. This gorgeous chapel boasts country rustic charm which will tie in beautifully with your rustic industrial theming. Broadway Chapel prides itself on a walk-in walk-out basis, providing everything you need for your ceremony and even includes styling. A celebrant can be provided for you or you can use your own preferred celebrant or pastor.
