Full Description
St Albans Museum + Gallery is licensed to hold wedding ceremonies and civil partnerships in two of its historic rooms. Your guests can gather in the historic courtroom for a completely unique ceremony. From its pews and judge’s chair to its octagonal shape, the Courtroom is brimming with distinctiveness. Fitted with its original wooden panels throughout giving a sense of warmth and richness, this wonderfully intimate room is the perfect backdrop for a wedding ceremony and later on can transform in to your dance floor with access to the subterranean cells! Behind the impressive Palladian facade and balcony is The Assembly Room. A stunning ballroom that can hold both your ceremony and your sit-down wedding dinner beneath its giant and breath-taking crystal chandeliers. From the timeless elegance of the Georgian Assembly Room, with its ornate chandeliers and lustrous gold leaf, to the sleek, white styling of the modern galleries these versatile and impressive spaces provide a stunning backdrop for weddings. With a history of state banquets, galas, balls and dinners the entire museum can accommodate from 60 to 400 people. Whether intimate or grand let our dedicated events team set the scene for your special day.
