When it comes to wedding venues, most couples want to find a location with wow-factor, and Tramshed has it in spades. Found inside a former electricity generator for trams, this spacious Shoreditch spot is not the most traditional of wedding venues, but its sense of uniqueness only adds to Tramshed’s appeal; after all, how many people can say they enjoyed their wedding reception beneath art designed by Damien Hirst?
The work in question is the artist’s striking Cock ‘n’ Bull sculpture, which is housed in a glass case filled with formaldehyde that looms over the main dining room. Suited to larger wedding parties, the dining room at Tramshed boasts an industrial-chic vibe, complete with double-height ceilings and large windows that flood the space with light. The dining room can be configured to seat guests on long tables or you can place groups together on the cosy leather booths which line the edges of the room.
The food menu here is replete with beef and chicken dishes, with the option to have your chosen meat carved at the table for added theatrical effect. The main restaurant can host up to 200 guests for a standing reception, or 150 for a banquet-style feast.
If you’re hosting a more intimate wedding, you can opt for the subterranean Hix Art space, which can accommodate 60 guests for a wedding banquet on long trestle tables. While you tuck into your food, you and your guests can admire the artwork on the walls, which showcases up and coming artists and changes periodically.
If you’re shunning a big guest list for a super intimate affair, than Mark’s Kitchen Library is the spot you’ll want at Tramshed. Seating just 12 guests, the Library unsurprisingly is equipped with shelves groaning with books, as well as a snooker table and a demonstration kitchen, so you and your spouse can watch your post-wedding feast being prepared directly in front of you.
