    Perfect day

    Our wedding was everything we hoped it would be - we couldn't have wished for a better day. You did an amazing job - it was really relaxed yet organised! And was just the atmosphere we hoped for.

    Thank you!

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your hard work in helping us to make Sunday a very special day. It went so well, everyone commented on the venue, on how brilliant it was and how it worked so well for the kids. Your team were so on it on the day and the band also commented on how helpful all the staff were. Thanks for your professionalism and support and everything from the tastings, to table set up, video showing and sound. I would highly recommend it as a venue to anyone. Thanks for looking after me and calming my nerves! I’ve always loved coming to the BAC to see gigs and shows but now it has a special place in my heart.

    Truly magnificent!

    We had a truly amazing day, thank you! All our guests were blown away by BAC, from the building to the food to the friendliness of all the staff. Praise was also heaped on Frankie's food - particularly the homemade taste (that's a massive compliment) and the gigantic pavlova.

    We loved having our wedding here! So special.

    We had our wedding reception at BAC in October 2013; it was absolutely incredible! The venue was perfect for us; spacious (we had 300 guests for dancing!) and super-fun, but also had a really lovely homely, vintage feel which was perfect for us and our wedding's theme. The band looked and sounded incredible on the stage and we still get comments about how fun our day was. The staff were fantastic to deal with; we felt like we had a wedding planning team behind us! :) As locals, we absolutely loved having our wedding at such a special Battersea place, and we still walk past it and smile.

    The Council Chamber in the BAC was the perfect reception venue for our wedding. It's such a quirky, fun venue and we were able to achieve the exact feel we hoped for on our wedding day. We worked with several different staff over the course of the year leading up to our wedding day, they were all extremely helpful, prompt in replying to emails and took time to talk to us and understand what we were hoping for. We loved the long tables and fairy lights and they even provided us with a small stage for the band and funky armchairs from the cafe downstairs, which we had up on stage for us to sit in during the speeches. They were also very helpful when it came to the practical arrangements, like providing places to store our bags and reserving a parking space for our car and a disabled space for our Grandparent's car. It was almost 2 years ago now, but whenever we pass the BAC it brings back a special feeling as we remember a wonderful day. Thanks so much!
