A unique venue in the heart of Brighton's historic Lanes

As soon as we stepped inside, we knew Fabrica was going to be the perfect reception venue for our city wedding. An incredible tranquil space amid the buzz of Brighton's bustling Lanes, we booked well ahead of time and built up a great relationship with the events staff at Fabrica. The result was an incredibly smooth running day. We couldn't be happier with how it all went and Fabrica was the perfect backdrop for it all. Highly, highly recommend!

The most beautiful wedding venue

I honestly can’t recommend the Fabrica venue or staff enough. The best team.

Our perfect day!

My husband and I had a Christmas wedding at Fabrica at the end of December 2022 and we could not have been more thrilled with them.
From the beginning of our journey we were given all the important information about what a wedding at Fabrica could look like, including restrictions. This was brilliant as it enabled us to make an informed choice with no hidden surprises.
For us there was no other contender. Fabrica in right in the centre of Brighton and is completely private unlike many hotels. It is an empty space which means you can create your perfect look. The team are incredibly helpful at giving you various companies to check out and we were able to tailor everything to fit us. Also the space is so beautiful that if you were on a tighter budget, you could get away with minimal décor because of the building's natural character.
The team both in the run up and on the day were exceptional. They are friendly and efficient, they truly made it such a positive experience and worked well with coordinating the band, caterers and various deliveries.
We cannot recommend this hidden jewel enough- it was perfect for us.

The Dream venue and Organisers

We cannot thank the team at Fabrica enough for everything they did to make our special day everything we wanted and more! The team were faultless from the first meeting to the post wedding clear down. They were such a pleasure to work with and nothing was too much trouble or too small a question.

Our wedding was rearranged three times due to the pandemic, which could have been a very stressful situation. The team were flexible, calming, reassuring and always had our best interests at heart.

The space itself is unique and beautiful. It is a wonderful canvas to make your own or leave it is... It was perfect for exactly what we wanted.

Living in Brighton meant that we wanted to celebrate our big day in the heart of our city / home. Fabrica allowed us to do exactly that in stunning style.

We are so pleased we chose it as our venue!

Wouldn't have changed it for the world!!

Two people had recommended Fabrica (a not for profit) as a wedding venue, and we are so pleased who chose it! Right in the middle of the beautiful lanes, Fabrica has repurposed the church to host wedding parties! Elin, our main point of contact, was fabulous from the outset and was very helpful and responsive, and the team in the run up and on the day were super. This venue is a complete blank canvas and you have so much flexibility, you really can make it your own (they provide a list of their recommended suppliers but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to go with those options). Equally, we managed to get into the venue by 11am on Friday to put up the lights, arrange the table and chairs as well as the decorations and didn't have to clean up until the Monday which is something quite rare with wedding venues. The entire day was absolutely magical and stress free! I would definitely encourage anyone getting married to get married here! The day was perfect. The only negative comment I would say is it that the parking situation isn't great given it is in the middle of town..but other than that, for us, it was a no brainer!

Best. Day. Ever.

We could not speak more highly about Elin, the team at Fabrica and the venue itself. Stunning space, helpful, engaging and relaxed staff in a brilliant location, Anything we suggested was met with enthusiasm and suggestions to better our ideas. If something went wrong - no problem, they sorted it. They went above and beyond to help - even packing away our furniture - saving a job and our heads on Monday morning!

The staff were an absolute pleasure to work with.

We met the event manager times leading up to the wedding and they were always so helpful and prepared, clearly communicating and articulating any relevant points we needed to know about or that were outstanding. When we were designing the decor for the venue, again she made helpful suggestions but was never interfering. Her warm personality and reassuring manner is just want a bride and her wedding planner need in the lead up to the big day. It would be a pleasure to work with them and at Fabrica again.

Fabrica was the most amazing venue!

From the beginning we knew it was a very special place. The fact we could do what we wanted in the space was such a bonus. It meant we could design our reception just the way we wanted and because of that it is a memory that will stay prominent with us forever. All our guests were so impressed with the space, and it looked so beautiful with all our decorations. The staff were so brilliant before and on the day.

For us it was all completely wonderful.

At last a quiet moment to write to you to thank. The building is just magnificent and was the perfect venue for our wedding celebrations. We were thrilled how everything came together so brilliantly with contributions from so many, all working together to make it happen.

I was very impressed indeed with your easy and helpful communication beforehand as well as all your hard work the day before and during the wedding. You were all so friendly, polite and organised, and coordinated and managed the day amazingly. We cannot thank you enough for everything. For us it was all completely wonderful.
