Unusual Wedding Venues in Scotland | WEST on the Green
WHY CHOOSE WEST ON THE GREEN FOR YOUR WEDDING?
Located in the Templeton Building on Glasgow Green, West has two versatile function suites. It can accommodate parties from 20 guests to 25. There's ample street parking. You can even arrange brewery tours for your guests. All that aside, here are three incredibly convincing reasons heralding the virtues of this Glasgow gem.
1. IT'S RIGHT ON GLASGOW GREEN
In terms of green space, you have the entire Glasgow Green on your doorstep, providing wonderful scenery which is unusual for city centre properties. Glasgow Green is a 55 hectares/136 acres site and is by far the oldest of the city's parks. The atmosphere is a combination of both the tranquility of the park juxtaposed with the energy of the city. The rest of the city centre is accessible should you fancy heading 'off site' for photographs.
2. THE ICONIC TEMPLETON BUILDING
Formally Templeton's Carpet Factory, the design was inspired by the late medieval Palazzo Ducale (Doge's Palace) in Venice. The flamboyant glazed brick, vitreous enamel tiles, red brick and terracotta of the facade evokes the rich Oriental-influenced patterns of the carpets the factory produced. WEST's brewery and head office are both based in the Templeton Building now, alongside the WEST On The Green bar + restaurant. The design + architecture of the building provide a unique backdrop to a wedding.
3. RELAXED + ENERGISING ATMOSPHERE
If you're looking for a quiet, private use only venue, WEST is not for you. WEST On The Green functions primarily as a bar and restaurant. It’s not an exclusive use wedding venue. Depending on the size of wedding you have, you'll most likely converge with folks stopping in for lunch or post work drinks. The two functions suites do provide a reasonable level of privacy. If you're looking for a space with a difference; a spot with palpable energy, you might find WEST's charm + spirit irresistible.
