Congratulations on your engagement from the team at BAaD - we would be delighted to host your wedding celebrations.
Your wedding day should be one of the most enjoyable experiences of your life. A day of smiles (and a few tears) in a space that gives you the freedom to express your style as a couple ...
Barras Art and Design is a unique multi-use event space nestled in the heart of the historic Barras Market in Glasgow, Scotland. A large, open space filled with natural light, BAaD is made up of a large internal ground floor courtyard, elevated mezzanine bar and restaurant as well as a number of outside areas.
The area is filled with murals and the world-famous Barras market signage - a perfect destination for couples looking for unique wedding shots.
A perfect setting for your ceremony with our modern backdrop and the space then transforms into the ultimate party for you and your guests to really celebrate.
A venue like no other, BAaD is the perfect place to make your dream for your big day come true.
BAaD can be hired for your big day on an exclusive basis but also part hires (number dependant) the following information is suggestions for your big day and to give you an idea of our spaces however all aspects of your big day can be customised and our team are happy to discuss your specific needs to create your perfect day.
The ceremony is usually held under our glass roof in our beautiful courtyard surrounded by plants.
The couple also receive a Green Room space at the rear of the venue for last moment make-up checks or a stolen moment of calm throughout the day
Guests are invited to the mezzanine space for a drink to celebrate the couple, this area has great views over the courtyard and also the famous BAaD mural and its own private bar.
Arguably one of the best backdrops the city of Glasgow has to offer. BAaD wedding photos truly are unique, industrial chic, luscious botanicals, pink shutters galore, murals and of course the world-famous Barras signage (and the bonus of Barrowlands sign just around the corner!)
The courtyard is turned around in no time to host your wedding breakfast - in the style you wish to have it. BAaD is all about catering to your needs, our Wedding menu has two styles to fit your wedding 3 Course or Street Food.
3 Course Meal - our chefs work with you to create a meal that works for your tastes. The Kitchen at BAaD is honest and wholesome with a modern flair, using seasonal ingredients and taking inspiration from the area's rich and varied communities which include everything from Scottish, Irish, Italian, Indian and Catalan.
Street Food Style - many couples find a street food style menu works best for their relaxed style and tastes. Dishes from around the world are served to your guests from a festival-style stall or served to the table in a sharing style.
BAaD is all about the party. Having hosted gigs, parties and a few raves under the glass roof in its time the courtyard is the perfect space to get your dance on! We have an in-house PA system and can help you with anything you need for your entertainment to really bring the house down!
