Full Description
The Engine Works is a newly refurbished multi-space venue just 20 minutes from Glasgow Central Station.  The building was originally a foundry and steel works back in the 1830's and has been lovingly transformed into a multi-space events venue.  You will find red brick and timber frames throughout the building along with our gorgeous Royce Crane giving the space a character of its own. Whilst retaining the character of the building we have factored in mod-cons, providing our guests with underfloor heating, high end toilet facilities, and three phase power throughout. There are three dynamic spaces spread across the ground floor - The Engine Room, The Workshop and The Outhouse - all of which can be used independently, or opened up to flow seamlessly into one another. All three spaces are unique in their own way, yet blank canvases to dress as you wish. Guests also have access to our hidden garden with a private entrance onto the canal (perfect for photo opportunities) which gives you that little bit of quiet and tranquillity from the city.  The cobbled load-in/load-out area is another space in which clients often use as part of their event as this space has its very own character too.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

The best wedding that took place so far at the Engine Works is such a difficult question! All of our weddings are amazing and I'm not just saying that. The aesthetic and ethos of The Engine Works is to tell a story and for our weddings it is the story of each couple - every single one is different.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Get involved and make it personal. Hire a stylist company to create your vision or enlist the help of friends and family to add some personal touches. That is what makes the day special and emulate your personality as a couple.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

My favourite personal touch was a back drop that the bride had designed and the groom created out of MDF. It was used for the ceremony and then for the speeches - I'm sure it now has another purpose in the couple's home.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, Fantastic ,Outstanding, Enchanting, Distinct [6th Magic (Scots adjective 😂)]

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

There are two: From the top of the canal steps - the couple walking down or looking down at the full wedding party gathered on the terrace. From under the crane during the couple's first dance. The couple in the forefront with all their guests behind them.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We can't say!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Toasted brioche loaf stacked with creamy brie, smoked salmon and fruit jam.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Ice cream.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The Royce crane designed by automotive royalty, Sir Henry Royce.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The fact that the building has been so beautifully restored with attention to detail. I love it.
