A Special Day

Make your wedding day romantic, personal, precious, memorable…..and unique with the help of our wedding co-ordinator

Let me introduce myself…

Lawrence Hallows Head of Sales at The Albert Square Chop House (1)

There’s nothing better than witnessing first-hand the look of a happy couple on the biggest day of their lives.

After months of preparation, collective hard work and a mutual bond, it’s my absolute pleasure to be a part of a day you will remember forever.

Being involved in weddings for a number of years now, I understand that every wedding is one of a kind. It’s my job to ensure your requirements are met and to take the stress away from something that should be enjoyed from our first meeting to the start of your married lives together.

It’s my love of the job that enables me to understand and deliver the wedding you dream of, and it’s my passion that guarantees you feel comfortable that everything is in hand.

What I love about our venue is that you can do what you like with it. It’s a blank canvas whilst remaining quirky and original. It’s our award winning food and wine list that makes us a cut above the rest and allows you to really treat your guests on the day.

Due to the experience I’ve gained over the years, I work with the best team from florists to musicians and everything in between. I don’t just provide a venue, I provide a service.

I would love the opportunity to meet with you in person, walk you around our beautiful venue and discuss the endless possibilities we can offer.

I look forward to hearing from you,

Lawrence x

Testimonials

 

Mr and Mrs Barrett  – Wedding October 2016

Hi Lawrence,

Thanks for your note.  We both had a fantastic day on Friday.  Everything was exactly how we had imagined it.  We wanted a relaxed, casual wedding with no frills and you got that straight away.  You helped to guide us by asking the right questions and making sure we had all bases covered.  What we particularly liked were the personal touches – printing our table plan, arranging our tables using your own stock, and setting up the Wii for the kids which was very much enjoyed and appreciated.

The food and wine were fabulous (which was the main reason we chose the venue in the first place – it did not disappoint).  The choice of wine perfectly matched the food, and we appreciated having the opportunity to sample the menu beforehand.

Sarah and the bar staff were very helpful all day.  Service was great and they couldn’t do enough to help us out.

Over all we cannot praise you, Sarah and the rest of the people who were on duty on Friday enough.

Mr and Mrs Miller – Wedding April 2016

Hi Lawrence,

We had a ball! Thanks so much to you and all the team there, we were a particularly rowdy bunch and everybody showed so much patience with us!! The feedback we have had is ‘best wedding ever’ (although people always say that)

You guys made it easy from start to finish and we always felt as though we had nothing to worry about. We found you in particular to be so assertive that we really decided to make the booking once we had met you as we knew we would be in safe hands with you at the helm.

We really appreciated how valued you made us feel. Just simple gestures like giving us a bottle of prosecco the day before goes a huge way. 

The room looked great and I hope you got some pics to show what can be done. The decorations we had seen of the room previously looked quite subtle so we really had to use our imagination but the dancefloor and fairy lights made a huge difference to the aesthetics of the room (in our opinion anyway).

Location is great and the Christmas markets really added to it. I would recommend using these as a selling point for winter weddings. 

The food got rave reviews and I think every morsel got gobbled up! The staff were all lovely and very forgiving of some quite mischievous behavior with our brass band taking over your entrance! Very good fun! The coeliacs also really appreciated the extra effort that went into getting them their own drink. 

We had a great time and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

Xx

Mr and Mrs Putz – Wedding November 2015

Hi Lawrence, 

Sorry it’s took me a while to respond.  Our day was amazing from start to finish. So many of our guests complimented us on the choice of venue. Everyone loved it, the ceremony room was lovely and having the bar space for after was perfect for seeing our guests while having a drink in a great environment (it looks fab on pictures).  The canapés went down a storm too, we have always loved your food and you didn’t let us down.  

By far the stand out of the day were your staff they were beyond great being helpful, friendly, approachable, seeing what needed doing before asked and putting us at ease.

I don’t think there is anything you guys can improve on, you have it just right, from our first contact with planning I have felt supported and never had a worry about the wedding as I knew it was in good hands. 

We have always loved your venues from lunch to watching the rugby in day long drinking sessions, but now we love you guys even more.

Thank you again to you and the team, I’ll pop a review on trip advisor too.

Maria (the new Mrs Putz!)

Mr and Mrs Wallworth – Wedding September 2015

Hi Lawrence,

Hope you are well?

We are very well thank you, we have recovered but are still in a complete buzz about the day. We had such a fantastic time – Lawrence you were brilliant from the first meeting right until the end, this was noted by our guests who commented on how great and attentive you were (nothing to much trouble) – I’m just so glad that you were the person in charge of managing our day. The food was perfect – again all the guests commented on the food both the wedding breakfast & the evening buffet. The room was exactly how I dreamed of, but I  think what made it extra special was everybody at the chop house. The staff really are a credit to the business, we feel so strongly about this we would love to sing your praises to the owner if possible.  It really was the best day of our lives & was a perfect beginning to our married life. THANK YOU to everyone who played a part. Gaz & I have vowed that every year on the 16th August we will go for a meal at the chop to remind ourselves of the best day ever.

We will make sure that we do the trip adviser review & I’m even thinking of getting in touch with a bridal magazine once we have our photo’s to see if they would like to feature it as a wedding. It’s worth a try but would be great publicity for you guys.

Best wishes

Mr and Mrs Carr – Wedding September 2015

Hi Lawrence

In terms of the service we received it was excellent from start to finish.  The planning and organisation was so easy and smooth.  On the day all of the staff were so attentive, everyone has commented on how efficient they were.  The food service was great and glasses were kept filled up without anyone having to ask.  The vegans and vegetarians were also very happy with their food!

The food was also fantastic.  Everyone has commented on how nice it was which is not normally expected for mass catering.  In addition the evening buffet was also great and the space worked really well by having it laid out in the separate room.  People have also commented on it being one of the best evening buffets they’ve ever had!

We’re so glad we chose your venue for our wedding.  In terms of layout it worked perfectly.  It was just what we wanted and we would like to thank you for being so helpful throughout.

Kind regards
Michelle

Mr and Mrs Goddard – Wedding October 2014

‘We really can’t thank you enough for all the support and help you personally showed us in the process. You made life very easy for us and we had full trust in you from start to finish. It is clear that you care enormously about the work you do and I really do wish you all the best for the future. We would not hesitate to use the chop house for another function in the future and I really hope that our paths cross sometime soon.’

Mr and Mrs McGlashen – Wedding July 2014

‘Thank you so much to you and your team for organising such a wonderful event! We were so pleased with the way everything went, and you respected and followed our brief perfectly. Needless to say, I had every confidence in you from our first meeting. I was really glad that you were there on the day, as a familiar face is so important! We were thrilled with everything from start to finish and really enjoyed our wedding, with the peace of mind that you had everything under control! 🙂 Thanks once again Lawrence.’
