Don’t Forget The Non Drinkers: Vegan Mocktail Making Workshop: with Align Events

Look Around The Venue: The Ecology Pavilion
The Ecology Pavilion is in the heart of East London and is a large modern venue in the natural surroundings of the Ecology Park which was designed with sustainability in mind. The building is buried in a grass bank giving it beautifully natural surroundings and the perfect space for your wedding too! It’s 20 minutes from the City and West End on the Central line and a 10-minute walk from Mile End Underground Station. Come and see how beautiful it is for yourself and do some epic and informative wedding planning whilst you’re there!
We look forward to seeing you there!
