The RIBA is a stunning and unique Art Deco venue that will bring glamour and prestige to your wedding celebrations. Welcome your guests on the beautiful First Floor Landing, its high ceilings and marble pillars create a feeling of grandeur with a grand piano to provide the perfect accompaniment to your arrival.
During the warmer months the fabulous terrace provides an outdoor area for drinks. The Florence Hall can accommodate seated dinner-dances for 200 guests or a standing reception for 400 guests, with cocktails, canapés, food stations and dancing. Our proposal is very flexible and adaptable to your requirements.
Civil marriages and ceremonies can take place in a diverse range of spaces, including the Aston Webb Room’s for intimate ceremonies of 40 to the wood panelled, tiered Jarvis Hall for 250.
In the heart of London’s West End, we are just three minutes walk from Regent’s Park Station, with Great Portland Street and Oxford Circus Stations within easy walking distance.

An exquisite setting...nothing too much trouble'Our wedding at RIBA was absolutely magical. RIBA was an exquisite setting, the food was wonderful and we had a brilliant party afterwards...nothing was too much trouble. RIBA made our big day really special and we would heartily recommend it for a wedding or any celebration.'

A wonderful time in a fantastic venue!'We definitely made the right choice in holding our wedding reception at the RIBA. The events and catering teams could not have looked after us better, both in helping us with our preparations and in ensuring everything went smoothly on the day. Nothing was too much trouble and we had a wonderful time in a fantastic venue!'

Everything and more than we could have hoped for'...The staff were also so genuinely eager to assist in any way possible, and the flexibility that the RIBA building could offer meant we had welcoming drinks and photos downstairs in the terrace garden, before moving upstairs for the actual ceremony in the Lutyens room. To then have a roof top reception as the sun went down and the moon rose later over London was so special, and the feedback from all the guests was just fantastic – they loved the informality, the elegance of the space, and the food was exceptional- the quality of the tasting was exceeded on the night...We had such a brilliant time, and we are so grateful to all the staff for making our special day so very special. It was everything and more than we could have hoped for, and our guests, without exception, felt the same way. Thank you for everything.'

A perfect day!'...thank you so much for everything you did in making our wedding a perfect day! We were very impressed with all the time and effort you both spent with us in the months before and with your helpful advice and support.
On the day itself everything went brilliantly, the setting was lovely and the food was really very good indeed, the waiting staff in particular were excellent - professional and quick!
Thank you again and very best wishes.'

Wonderful, professional, stunning'My husband and I can say without reservation that having the wedding reception at RIBA was wonderful. The service that you and all the staff at RIBA gave was professional, friendly, helpful and approachable in both the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself.
RIBA was a stunning location, so many of our guests remarked on how nice the setting was, and we wonder if our wedding reception would have been quite the same without everything that the RIBA Venue had to offer.'
