Divine experience hosting ceremony at Burgh House
We had an amazing event earlier this month - the staff were awesome. The venue itself is gorgeous and I can’t fault it. I’d recommend sticking to around 60 max guests. We had 70 which is the max and it felt pretty tight. So if you want an excuse to cut your numbers a bit, here it is! Leafi do great catering too.Sent on 30/07/2019

Beautiful Intimate London Venue
We held our wedding ceremony at Burgh House in May 2016. It was absolutely perfect for us, looking for a pretty London venue alternative to a registry office. The location was easy to get to, a short walk from Hampstead station. Several of our guests met beforehand in one of the local pubs before walking down the pretty residential streets to the venue. Others arrived early at Burgh House and had a look round the upstairs museum. It has a beautiful ceremony room complete with piano, an outside garden area if the weather is in your favour or an indoor gallery room if it’s a bit colder. Staff were exceptionally helpful and the post ceremony catering was delicious. We later hired a bus to take us to a larger venue for the rest of the day but if our party had been smaller then we could have happily spent the whole day at Burgh House. Would highly recommend.Sent on 07/05/2018
My husband and I got married here in July 2005. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a small, friendly wedding in a pretty Queen Anne townhouse. It was not overly swanky or stage-managed, but that''s what we wanted. Our 30 guests could easily come by public transport, which they all appreciated. We married in the late afternoon, which meant we had the garden to ourselves. This was relaxing and the children could run around. The food was great, and the caterers took every care in creating the menu we wanted eg. including my favourite trifle! and brownies with our initials in icing.Sent on 03/04/2007
