Full Description
Here at The Mermaid London, we have the beautiful River Rooms and Queenhithe, three perfect blank canvas spaces for you to dress as you desire for your special day. Whether your wedding is large or intimate, we can help you with every aspect and tailor the River Rooms to create your dream wedding. We know how much there is to think about when you’re looking for a wedding venue, so we pride ourselves in offering an impeccably professional, highly experienced, and ultra-friendly team who are ready to support you and make sure your wedding is just amazing. We have a wedding licence, so you can marry in any of our River Rooms spaces; Upper River Room, Lower River Room or the Queenhithe. Or arrive straight from the church to your own dedicated, personalised entrance. You can choose to have your wedding breakfast in one of our two river rooms, and then take advantage of the Queenhithe for your evening reception, as it’s the perfect spot for dancing the night away until 2am. The room is seamlessly connected to the Upper River Room, perfect for hosting an additional 150 people during the reception. We also work with you to create your dream menu. With menu tastings before the big day, you can choose from our seasonal menus or create a your own that’s bespoke to you.

The best day or our lives
This venue was more amazing than we could have ever imagined. It's a complete blank canvas and we were able to decorate it exactly how we wanted it. Jessica and Filipe were fantastic and eased my nerves when sorting out the wedding. On the day, the staff were excellent and everything went so smoothly, I couldn't have asked for more. Everyone made such an effort to make sure that we enjoyed our special day as much as we could and that we certainly did. I couldn't have asked for more and we are so happy and grateful for everything they did for us! Thank you so much!

"We’re both glad we picked you and the venue..."
“The efforts put in by you and your team were fantastic! So, a big thank you for helping us organise it. We’re both glad we picked you and the venue to host our big day. The venue and the food received a lot of compliments from our guests. I think the team really delivered on our dream. I’m sure it is hard to find venues and suppliers who really listen, and we were both very relieved to have a great relationship with you and your team who truly understood what we were looking for.”

"Everyone commented on how delicious the food was"
“We had the most amazing day, so thank you for all your help! Everyone commented on how beautiful the venue was and how wonderful and attentive all of your staff were. There were a lot of comments on how wonderful the food was as well - everybody really enjoyed their meals.  I do have to say a big thank you for the evening food - absolutely everyone commented on how delicious it was.  The crostini's went down an absolute treat. “Absolutely everything else was incredibly positive from beginning to end.  We really did have the best time and all of your hard work paid off.  The venue looked so incredible, it blew my mind when I walked in for the ceremony and more so for the reception.”
