"The venue, set up and wedding ceremony in the Watershed was all we could have dreamed of, and all our guests commented on what a great but unusual venue for the wedding, which made it memorable for all.

I would highly recommend the Watershed, it is a really interesting and quirky venue with real character and the views onto the waterfront are perfect for your pictures and memories."
