The ClayShed: A Creative Celebration In A Blank Canvas Setting

By Sarah Adams

Sometimes when you’re not looking you end up finding ‘the one.’ This is the case for Hannah and Dominic, who met online around five years ago. “We didn’t expect to find ‘the one,’ but we were super lucky.”

Hannah and Dominic transformed the blank canvas setting of the ClayShed into a gorgeous celebration that represented them as a couple. “Dom went to a secret cinema screening of Ghostbusters on Halloween the year before the wedding. It was his idea to get married in the same room. I wasn’t as keen… it took me a while to see the potential of the massive space, but I reluctantly agreed and I’m so glad I did! We’d 100% recommend the venue for anyone wanting something a bit different the possibilities are endless at the ClayShed.

“We wanted our wedding to be completely chilled, relatively informal and something a bit different to the weddings we’d been to in the past. Mainly we wanted to have a good time.”

How did you choose your photographer?
“We discovered Chocolate Chip completely by accident.. their studio happens to be part of the yard where the ClayShed is located. It was meant to be! Chris and Shazia knew exactly what we wanted and made it happen!”

How did you find the overall wedding planning experience?
“Hard work, but so much fun. The ClayShed is a DIY venue and a total blank canvas but it means you can do whatever you want!”

Advice for other brides and grooms?
“Do what YOU want. Don’t be persuaded by old traditions or people telling you to do things differently to how you imagined. It’s your day!”

What was your highlight of the day?
“There are so many! Playing beer pong with my bridesmaids has to be a highlight.”
