Full Description
The Barbican boasts one of the most unusual venues in London for weddings; the Conservatory. This lush tropical oasis is home to exotic fish and 1,800 species of tropical plants and is licensed to host wedding and civil partnership ceremonies. Once you have completed your wedding vows, let your photographer whisk you away to our secluded couple’s area, whilst we serve your guests with champagne and canapés. To complete the picture the adjoining Garden Room can seat up to 220 guests for your wedding breakfast. This newly refurbished room has floor to ceiling windows showcasing fantastic views of the city skyline as well as a state-of-the-art lighting system to create the perfect atmosphere for post dinner dancing. Catering is provided through in-house caterers Searcys who will create a delicious and innovative menu to match your requirements.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Remember what matters to you! A lot of well meaning family and friends will have ideas and suggestions (some helpful and some not), ultimately this is your day so don't get blindsided or bogged down in keeping everyone else happy.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Unique, Tropical, Unexpected, Beautiful and Theatrical

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

If you are brave enough we can allow the wedding couple on to one of the fly tower balconies for a quick snap

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We have entertained many famous faces at our events including actors, a TV chef and several royals

What part of your business are you most proud of?

The room hire generated from events and weddings is re-invested into the Barbican to help the continuation of the arts programming, so hosting your wedding here helps the arts come to life
