An absolute 5 star experience from setting the date all the way through in the most premium and special wedding venue.

I would highly recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for any of the following:-

- An extra premium city centre venue that brings New York vibes to Nottingham.
- A venue that delivers the wow factor on all levels from the impressive entrance hall, to the epic staircase to the beautiful windows that encase the wedding space bringing that something extra special to your wedding photos.
- Best in class service. Liam and his team were exceptional from start to finish. I cannot express how much they did for us. Always responsive, always going above and beyond, the team became such an important part of our special day.
- Out of this world food that delivers in-line with the superb restaurant the venue is home to and that also great value for money.
- Wine and drinks choices that were next level.
- Excellent photo opportunities from urban roof tops to dramatic stairways to canal-side fun.
- A fantastic sister bar underneath the venue for those pre wedding drinks, the night before wedding meal and the all important pre wedding planning meetings.
- An accessible venue that is perfect for guests who can stay within a stones throw of the hotel.

Cleaver & Wake, you literally smashed it out the park and made our day everything we hoped it would be, we cannot thank you enough and can’t wait to join you in the restaurant again soon.

Perfect day for our intimate wedding

We were so pleased with the communication and how accommodating they were throughout.
It made the planning stress free and easy.
All our needs were understood and met and the venue was perfect for our special day.
I would definitely use the space for another event in the future.
