Supplier Directory Guest Blog: Cosy Club Taunton - Somerset Registration Services

Our lovely neighbour and Supplier Directory member Cosy Club Taunton tell us a what makes them special. They also give some top tips on how to choose the right reception venue for your big day.

Quirky, Relaxed Reception Venue Right Here In Taunton

We get that not every couple wants a manor house wedding or yearns to be right in the middle of the countryside, surrounded by wildlife on their big day.

Finding a good wedding venue is sometimes easier said than done. If the problem isn’t with the size, closing time or extortionate cost of a very average room, it’s often that it all just feels a little samey. You’ve seen one hotel function room, you’ve seen them all, right?

Here at Cosy Club, we’re firm believers that it’s possible to find that quirky reception venue while still being able to stay in budget and have that dream honeymoon too! Our sites are renowned for the joys of relaxed dining, drinking and lounging in fabulous, welcoming settings: think aristocratic abundance with a dash of local village cricket pavilion pottiness.

How To Choose A Reception Venue

We are passionate about making those special moments even better – and making sure you can enjoy some delicious cocktails along the way, so here are our top tips to ensure your big day is perfect:

  1. Do your research

It always helps when you know what you’re looking for when trying to find a venue. What is the vibe you’re trying to go for? Casual cocktails or fine dining? Nailing the atmosphere you want to create can help you decide on the venue for you.

  1. Trial your venue

At Cosy Club we welcome potential newly weds to come in and try our delicious cocktails and tasty menus ahead of their big day to make sure they’re happy. It’s a good excuse to dine out we’d say!

  1. Check the specifics

Perhaps the less fun part of planning your after party, but the most important – make sure you have nailed the specifics of your venue. Your check list should include:

  • Does their capacity match your guest list?
  • Can they provide music, or do you need to bring your own?
  • How close are they to main transport links?
  • Is their closing time what you had in mind?

So, what can Cosy Club offer you?

Our Taunton site is directly opposite the Taunton Register Office, the busiest of 126 offices and approved ceremony venues across Somerset & North Somerset. It’s perfect for wedding parties who want a ceremony in a historic building at an affordable price and follow up with a reception without having to relocate more than a 2-minute walk!

The venue is situated in a grand Victorian building, which was previously an arts college. It’s the very first in our collection so has a special place in our hearts. Located on the upper-ground floor you have the main bar and restaurant. On the lower-ground floor you have The Den, which can be hired for private dining, drinks parties, daytime meetings, wedding receptions – you name it, we can do it. At the front of the entrance in the Cider Press Garden, there is also a 40-seater seasonal terrace so you can soak up the rays in the warmer months.
