What we wanted was a blank canvas to make our own and we found this in Kachette
"We wanted to find a venue that suited us both, where we could hold both the ceremony and reception. A fairytale wedding filled us both with dread. What we wanted was a blank canvas to make our own and we found this in Kachette, an incredible studio space in Shoreditch. The venue is the former ticket hall of Shoreditch Underground Station. An industrial, gallery-like space, it had an incredible simplicity and modernist aesthetic that was just irresistible."

For an industrial urban feel, with all the comforts you need, it can't be beaten.
Kachette was a perfect venue for our wedding, right in the heart of Shoreditch. The team there were super organised and really helpful, making sure the day went without a single problem. Spread across two arches, with excellent facilities, it's a bank canvas that you can customise to 100% match your needs. The excellent sound system really let the band show off to their best! For an industrial urban feel, with all the comforts you need, it can't be beaten.

We had our wedding at Kachette and everyone loved it
We had our wedding at Kachette and everyone loved it. We really felt it matched our idea for something different, quirky and relaxed. The staff were brilliant and we would recommend it as a wedding venue.

We were recommended Kachette from a friend
We live in East London and after looking at a few different local venues, we were recommended Kachette by a close friend. After looking around, we knew it ticked all the boxes. Located in an old Underground station, it had two amazing exposed brick arches, was right in the middle of Shoreditch, close to the Town Hall and had bags of character. Because the venue had two separate rooms, we could have the wedding breakfast in one Arch and the party in the other without people having to hang around whilst things were set up. We were also able to extend the license until 2am so we didn’t have to stop the party early which was also big thing for us."
