Why we Love Dry-Hire Weddings at Foil

As the ultimate in do-it-how-you-want wedding planning, dry-hire venues are hugely popular amongst couples who have a real vision they want to bring to life. From catering and bars, to styling and layout, hosting your wedding at a dry-hire venue will give you complete freedom. However, as these spaces often provided minimal facilities and services, a wedding coordinator is a real essential to make sure every element is as it should be - which is where we come in and what we love to do.

Do you have your own dry-hire wedding in the works?

Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding - Jess and Matt

Jessica + Matt's dry-Hire Wedding style:
Classy + Autumnal

After two postponed dates due to the pandemic, we were thrilled to finally be able to deliver J + M's wedding day at Trinity Buoy Wharf. They basked in the sunshine even in October and filled their venue with lush autumnal flowers whilst their guests enjoyed BBQ-style food and plenty of champagne! Foil provided an initial planning Session, on the day coordination and a late-night takedown service so the couple could focus on finally having the party they deserved.

Rose + JamEs' dry-Hire Wedding style:
Chic + ColouRfUl

R + J called on Foil to help transform an industrial workspace and car park in Shoreditch into a glamorous and unique wedding venue. They tied the knot with a celebrant led ceremony in the courtyard before enjoying cocktails and canapés in the interior, whilst the outside was transformed into an informal dining space complete with a wood-fired pizza van.

London dry-hire wedding

Liz + Henry'S dry-Hire Wedding style:
AuTumnAl + StYLiSH

L + H held their wedding at Core Clapton in London, a beautiful light-filled space that Foil transformed from ceremony to dinner and dancing whilst the couple and their guests enjoyed canapés and live music downstairs. After a quick outfit change the couple were ready to get the party started with bespoke cocktails, live band and a late-night pizza delivery.

Core Clapton Dry Hire Wedding

Our favourite dry-hire Wedding Locations

A dry-hire wedding venue is where an on the day coordinator really comes into their own. We've delivered weddings at some of the UK's biggest and best dry-hire venues and have honed our skills over the years to mean nothing gets overlooked. The amazing thing about a dry-hire wedding venue is the complete flexibility it gives to you as a couple whilst you plan (although, we know sometimes that can feel a little daunting!) and there's nothing quite like putting your own stamp on a blank space.

Liz and Henry did exactly that by adding autumnal charm to Core Clapton's huge white space, whilst we helped them transform the room from ceremony, to dinner, to dancing with no disruption to their wedding day. We also know the importance of a solid logistical plan when it comes to a dry-hire wedding, which is why Flic and Nikolai were relieved to have us on board at Trinity Buoy Wharf, where we managed every element from the setup and running of their bar to the preparation of their catering team, right on through to the delivery and collection of their tables, chairs, flowers and more.

Ultimately, a dry-hire wedding venue can give you the most individuality for your wedding day and we love helping our couples bring that to life; leaving you to the partying whilst we tackle the planning.

Sally and Bobby's dry-Hire Wedding style:
Personal + Contemporary

S+B kicked off their wedding planning journey with a Plan session with Foil. Their day began at Abney Public Hall before walking in full procession with their guests and a traditional Dhol drummer to arrive at West Reservoir Centre for their reception. They enjoyed espresso martinis, a plentiful Indian buffet and views out over the reservoir. They also booked Foil's late night takedown service for total peace of mind.
