Our 360 visuals of space offer true escapism and perfect photo opportunities, ensuring that your special day is enjoyable and memorable. 

The Planetarium has a capacity of 70 and can be hired from £650, and this fantastic experience can be booked alongside a wedding reception. The Planetarium offers a truly out of this world experience, allowing you to select images from Centre for Life’s image gallery and have it projected onto the space.

If it’s a more traditional wedding ceremony you’re after, then we also offer the Scotswood, Grainger and Marlborough suites for hire. The Grainger and Marlborough suites allow for larger parties of 71 to 240.

As home to an award-winning science museum, we can also throw in some super quirky extras such as unique photo opportunities in front of exhibitions and fun for your guests on the 4D motion ride! At Centre for Life there is no need to worry about gaps in the day, with so much to do your guests will be kept enthralled from start to finish.

When it comes to catering, you can take advantage of our special wedding package which includes a three course wedding breakfast for 60 people, in addition to an evening reception and buffet for 100 people. We offer our packages to guide you in the right direction, but if you would like to swap in some favourites or kick off with cocktails, then we have got you covered.

    Unforgettable!

    Just a quick note to say thank you so much for all the effort you put in to planning our wedding, and to yourself, Julie and the rest of the team for making the day go so smoothly. You and the team worked really hard and did an outstanding job! We were also pleased you were there on the day - it gave us a sense of reassurance & continuity so we really appreciate that.

    Janine and I still feel overwhelmed by how wonderful the day was; how well organised everything was, and how incredible the venue was for each stage of the wedding. We’ve also had great feedback from all the guests who just had the best time, and loved every aspect of the whole day.

    As people have said it would, the day seemed to go really quickly but we have some great memories and we’re looking forward to seeing the photos when we get those through! I was particularly wowed by the power of the planetarium for the ceremony, but the Scotswood Suite looked amazing, the food was lovely, and the giant moon for the evening do: simply perfect! I was blown away by the power and atmosphere of the planetarium too. I imagined the ceremony might get emotions going (as will happen with weddings) but this was something else. And to finish the evening under the moon in the exhibition space : unforgettable! Married life feels good too!

    Good luck with all your future events and if other couples who sign up for their wedding at Life have half as good a day as we did they’ll be thrilled!

    Thanks to everyone for our perfect evening

    Thanks to everyone for our perfect evening on Saturday - we had the best night. The amount of positive comments about the venue, the food and reasonable bar prices have been amazing. Not a bad word has been uttered!

    Everything on the day was more than perfect

    Everything on the day was more than perfect and we can’t thank you, Julie and the team enough. Our guests had a great day and we've had nothing but compliments about your team.
