The Gamelab is a wedding entertainment company based out of Birmingham, England.

An experienced gaming team is on hand to elevate the ambience of your wedding day and related events by offering an exciting puzzle/escape experience for your guests.

Our standard booking is based on a game called "Find the Rings" where the worst thing possible has occurred and the wedding bands have been taken and the guests must save the day by finding them.

Included is a photo book containing images and messages from all your guests after their game with some of our lovely props.

Bespoke theming is also available with some couples opting for beach-themed, superhero, wizard and horror to name a few.

Above and beyond in a Galaxy far, far away….

Truly amazing.

From meeting them and booking, to two changes of date due to covid, David and the team where just amazing. Always great communication and always willing to answer any questions!

We had a bespoke Star Wars game created and it was fantastic! We could tell how much thought had gone into creating it and they really made it work for us!

Everyone at the wedding loved the game and David made sure everyone had a good chance to get out!! It created a real talking point and a good bit of competition and laughter!!

I could not recommend this more, a great way to offer your guests something exciting, fun and a real memory on your wedding day.

Unique experience that our guests loved

We came across Gamelab at a wedding fair and we had never heard of an escape room at a wedding before, so knew we had to give it a try. It was such an unique experience that all of our guests loved and are still talking about after the event.

They personalised the theme to fit with our festival themed wedding and even managed to work our dog into the clues and part of the fun. The team were great at working with us and were really flexible on the day in relation to timings. The competitive element in relation to timings also added a bit of fighting spirit.

The only downside was as we only had a small window not everyone got to give it a go, but those that did had a great time. It definitely helped our wedding stand out and kept the guests entertained.

Thanks again and I'm sure you'll soon need to invest in another horsebox to meet the demand.

Amazing service!

Our wedding guests absolutely loved what Escape Room had on offer. David and his team had turned up on time, set everything up in a seamless way and made sure that our guests had the most enjoyable and interesting experience of engaging with Escape Room. After, we were given a book of memories including digital photos. This little touch had literally exceeded our expectations. We are super grateful to David and his team and feel that they did go out of their way to make sure we and our guests had the best experience! Thank you!!!!

Super fun and unusual wedding entertainment!

We came across The Gamelab at a wedding fair and I'm so glad we did! We love board games and escape rooms so this was perfect for us and our guests, who signed up straight away and had a blast playing! Everyone told us how much fun they'd had and we were all super competitive!

We weren't sure if it was going to work out with the escape room vehicle being a short (30 second) walk from the main venue as our wedding was in November, but it all worked out totally fine.

Fully recommend The Gamelab, thank you for making our day so special!

What a brilliant way to entertain guests- especially if you are nerdy!

We wanted an original and unique way to entertain our guests and these guys delivered! Not only were they flexible, fun and enthusiastic they were professional and dedicated to making our wedding plans run as smoothly as possible. We requested a bespoke escape room experience and this was not a problem. If you want to have a fun 'every guest talking about your wedding' entertainment, then this is for you.

Really great fun

I first saw these guys at a comic-con just after I got engaged and knew I had to have them at our wedding. They were really helpful at all points of the build up and on the day and everyone who had a turn really had a great time. I loved the personal touches, and can't recommend them enough.

The best entertainment we booked for our wedding

These guys are amazing, super friendly and helpful and quick to respond and answer any questions. On the day they were fab and just got on with running everything no input from us. We gave them a theme and they brought it all together perfectly. Everyone was talking about it and thoroughly enjoyed their experience. If anything the only thing that would have made it better is if we had booked them for longer.
