They were really good. They were doing renovations and we were the first event afterwards. They were very helpful.

Emily and her team at the Watt Bar were fantastic. The venue, atmosphere and food was incredible. The Watt Bar provided many different wedding package options to choose from and were happy to change things around. The food is cooked on-site in the open kitchen and was delicious and plenty of it.

Can we have a morning wedding?

Mary Mae’s

Of course, you can! We are very flexible with our timings and can work out a plan to suit your dreams. And afterwards, you can celebrate with your loved ones over mimosas and canapes. 

Is there a venue that will let us dance until 2 a.m.?

Mary Mae’s

Unfortunately, we are licenced to midnight only. 

We want to stock the bar ourselves to save money. Will it?
