Our bright, airy and beautifully refurbished event space has retained key elements of its Art Deco design features, combining a mixure of exposed brickwork and stained glass windows with warm cedar panelling and modern dashes of colour and greenery.
Your Wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and every couple has their own idea of how they’d like it. Our space can cater for an intimate sit-down dinner for 85, or a more relaxed, informal standing reception with a band and DJ for up to 200 guests. Either way, Patterns provides a unique and affordable alternative to couples seeking something a little different to the more traditional, hotel-style wedding. The flexible nature of this space means you can curate the day to look and feel like your own, and our experienced wedding planner Jennie will be on hand to advise you on both the planning and the delivery.
We have a great drinks menu available, serving a wide range of premium spirits, wines, local beers and classic cocktails. We’ve teamed up with some of the best catering teams across Brighton and London to create a set of catering menus that work beautifully within our space - from a three-course, sit-down sharing-style meal to paella, platters and BBQ options.
Our hire structure allows you to pick and choose the individual elements that make up your day - so you can opt for a drinks-only reception, some light catering or simply to provide your own.
You also have the option of organising some extra special touches through us, such as an unlimited soft-whip ice cream station, freshly-made churros, a DIY glitter bar and photobooth hire that sends an album of all the GIFs taken on your day.
Our seaview accommodation is located directly above the venue so is perfect to accommodate any out-of-town guests. We offer some fantastic midweek rates to any couples who are getting married with us.

Our experience of Patterns was exceptional. Jennie and the team were supportive and helpful for the duration of the planning and the day was faultless. We had a 100% vegan wedding and the food was amazing. Dan and the catering team did a great job and all our guests were very complimentary of the food. Many thought they were vegan specialists which says it all! Abel, Sarah and the bar and waiting staff were all very professional on the day. Confident, calm, aware, the schedule of the day was managed well as we had canapés, two groups of speeches, bowl food, a band and a DJ. Lorna and I didn't need to manage anything and we were able to enjoy the day in a great venue. Many of my friends from Sheffield were amazed at the venue and Lorna's Brighton friends were positively surprised about how the venue has changed over the years.Sent on 30/08/2019
Patterns doesn't need much doing to it but we added a few personal touches such as flowers, lights and a welcome door. The sound system was also excellent.
We had a vision of the day when we began planning and Patterns exceeded our expectations. It was a wonderful day led by a great team.

Best wedding ever at Patterns!
We had our wedding reception and party at Patterns last Sunday and the entire day was brilliant, it could not have been any better! The location is as good as it gets, Jennie and the staff were all amazing and everything remained on schedule which doesn’t seem to normally happen at weddings! We got there and had Prosecco on the terrace in the sun overlooking the seafront, then had tapas and paella inside (the caterers were recommended by Patterns and were also brilliant). We were able to have both a band play followed by a DJ. The place already looks great and doesn’t require much decoration. Definitely recommend if you want a modern, fun wedding that doesn’t require too much organisation. Thank you so much Patterns team!Sent on 22/08/2019

Could not recommend enthusiastically enough
Where to even begin! We chose patterns as our wedding venue because it was cool, relaxed and fun rather than stuffy and formal, and being in such an iconic location gave us the most ‘Brighton’ wedding possible. It’s a beautiful 20s building with very fresh, stylish decor - we found that we didn’t really need to decorate anything other than our tables because the venue was already so cool.Sent on 02/08/2019
We also knew we wanted somewhere we could stay with our friends and family, so the apartments upstairs were ideal.
From start to finish Jennie was very helpful and reassuring - we weren’t sure of a lot of things as we’ve never planned a wedding before! But she was great every step of the way.
They were able to be flexible with the catering options giving us exactly what we wanted (family style service bowl food) and the food was incredible. So many people took the time to tell us that it was the best wedding food they’d ever had - more like restaurant standard.
The bar team on the day were fantastic and did everything we asked of them with a smile. The cocktails were delicious and they gave us the greatest atmosphere possible.
One bit of advice - if you’re renting the apartments upstairs for the night before, do be aware that there is obviously the club downstairs and a nightclub next door too. This is made perfectly clear by Patterns when you book, but we forgot to pack earplugs and didn’t sleep at all the night before (but this was probably also nerves!) so just pack earplugs/sleeping tablets :)
Absolutely can not fault Patterns - would highly highly recommend it as a wedding venue for anyone looking for something young, fresh and relaxed!!
