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. We can cater for Asian weddings with our catering partner MAZZA by KUDOS, who have experience in both Hindu and Nikkah wedding ceremonies.
