A Wonderful Space
We hired the Brunswick Centre for our DIY wedding in October 2019. As long time fans of Whitby, we knew we wanted to hold our wedding in the town, but after searching high and low we hadn't quite found the right venue. Then one day we remembered visiting the Brunswick Centre for a record fair years earlier, and once we saw pictures online we realised we had found our perfect venue. The trustees were so helpful from when we first contacted them all the way up until the wedding itself. This truly is a DIY venue, so we were able to choose everything we wanted from the bar and catering to the decor. A DIY wedding means organising everything from scratch, but we felt so privileged to be able to hold our celebration in this wonderful space and had the perfect day with every detail just as we wanted it. All of our guests were completely wowed by the space, there are so many factors that make it a special place to hold a celebration - the wonderful stained glass windows, all of the woodwork around the main room, the side rooms/lounge, and handy kitchen for our caterers. We were also very pleasantly surprised to find that the fairy lights on the posts and across the canopy above the main area are included in the hire, so we didn't need to do too much more to make the space look really special. We were able to hire the space over a few days to make sure we had time to set everything up and cleanup afterwards which was a huge help. For anyone who is looking for a completely DIY space where you can choose and organise every detail, then we absolutely recommend the Brunswick as a truly special venue.

Coastal Splendour
We always knew we wanted to tie the knot on the coast (both from Whitby!). We had been to a few events at this venue and always loved the original features and the vast space. When we found out you could hire it for weddings, we jumped at the chance! If you love the sea air, a quirky alternative to most generic venues, look no further!

The Wow Factor
Church Ceremonies may have become less popular compared to blessings but a wedding reception within a church is a perfect use of a unique space. We have provided bars at weddings at The Brunswick Centre and are always blown away with how stunning this venue looks. Such a large space and all the amenities you and your suppliers will need for the day. Being so close to the beach is a huge plus too! We can highly recommend this!

Thank you Thank you Thank you!
We had our dream wedding here and can't thank Brian and The Louisianna's Mobile Bar team enough for making it so stress free. From the moment we booked, the who planning process went smoothly and the team always on hand to help. Day of my wedding and I didn't have a care in the world knowing everything was taken care of. Thanks so much.

Lovely Venue
Had the opportunity to provide lighting and sound system for this venue. The lights provided really did set this venue off! the pipe organ is such a cool feature. The acoustics of the venue is brilliant too (I mean it is a church after all!). Recommend to all couples.
