The perfect day
We rearranged our wedding and brought it forwards two weeks, and given everything going on in the world, the team and the Baltic, specifically Charlie and Roy took it in their stride to help us make it possible.
Our day may not have been 200 people but it was perfect, and they went out of their way to make sure we were safe but still had an amazing day.Sent on 25/10/2020
BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art's reply:It was an absolute delight to host your intimate wedding here at BALTIC! The entire day was really special and we loved getting to know you both. Hopefully we will see you back for a party when covid restrictions have relaxed.

Hi Rachael,Sent on 28/03/2019
I just wanted to drop you a quick line to tell you how much we enjoyed Saturday night. Everything was perfect, and the additional suppliers you put me in touch with (DJ, Coco Luminaire and Big Purple) all collided to make the atmosphere just brilliant.
In particular, Avril and the team were so lovely and very attentive, they absolutely made our event. I know of at least two of our guests who were so smitten with the place, they're considering hosting events of their own there, so it was an inadvertent sales pitch for Fresh Element and Baltic.
Thank you once again, hope to be back very soon
