Full Description
  • Affectionately known as “The Gherkin”, 30 St Mary Axe is one of London’s most iconic landmarks, yet perhaps the Capital’s best kept wedding venue secret! Available to hire exclusively at the weekends, our 39th floor restaurant and 40th floor bar will be transformed into an oasis of calm on your special day, as our dedicated team look after your every need. Imagine walking down the aisle 39 floors above some of London’s most famous landmarks, with un-spoilt views overlooking St Paul’s Cathedral and the River Thames whilst saying ‘I do’. Our 39th floor restaurant is also the ideal space for your wedding breakfast following a post ceremony Champagne reception. Enjoy a delicious 3 course meal from our talented chefs, whilst watching the sun set London. The journey continues up on the 40th floor where you and your guests will have 360 degree panoramic views over the City as you dance the night away!

Ask a question
What’s your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember to take 5 minutes to yourself throughout the day! The day flies by so quickly, it's important to get a precious moment to yourselves.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
I think it's always lovely to add a personal touch, be it place cards, photos around the room or so on.
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Randomly, i think our staircase is perfect. The brides dress draping down the spiraled staircase, with the dome lighting washing over the floor - just so special!
What’s your favourite canapé?
All of them! Our canapes offer class, a burst of flavour and something for everyone.
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
What is your venue's most unique feature?
The very top of the Gherkin, level 40, boasts 360 degree views of London. A moment that offers a true wow factor.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
Our team are genuine, dedicated and great at ensuring the planning process as well as the day is as stress free as we can make it.
