Fortnum & Mason is a splendid wedding venue located in the heart of the City of London, England. This iconic destination has been the home of lavish weddings since the 1920s. The Royal Exchange exudes regal charm, with its Romanesque architecture and historic design. Characterised by neoclassical pillars, decorative archways, and limestone walkways, it is the perfect backdrop for refined celebrations and memorable occasions. Renowned for their high-end cuisine and commitment to excellence, the team at Fortnum & Mason looks forward to making your special day one to remember.

Facilities and Capacity

You can host an upscale city celebration for up to 150 guests in the Fortnum & Mason and Royal Exchange courtyard. Ceremonies are curated according to your tastes in the heart of The Royal Exchange, with elegant white seating laid out before an ornate altar setup. Afterwards, guests can enjoy cocktails, bubbles, and canapés while you explore the venue’s beauty spots for photo opportunities.

Wedding breakfasts and receptions are held in the courtyard, with tables arranged to suit parties of all kinds. The team organises formal fine dining at linen-clad round tables, with decor and cuisine designed to suit every theme and taste. After dinner, you can look forward to an evening of dancing and entertainment immersed in a picturesque, romantic setting.

At present, we are unable to offer both ceremonies and receptions on the same day at The Royal Exchange

For micro weddings and pre-wedding parties, there are a number of indoor private dining rooms such as the Diamond Jubilee Tea Room, The Boardroom, The Crypt, The Drawing Room, and more. Each space boasts a distinctive air of traditional refinement and elegance.
