Stunning wedding venue

As soon as we walked into the ICA we knew it was the perfect place for our wedding. Upon arrival you enter into a beautiful hallway with access to the most amazing spiral staircase that takes you up to the first floor function rooms (Nash & Brandon). When you enter the space you are instantly blown away by the scale and grandeur of the Georgian rooms, and with all 3 spaces interconnecting it makes for an ideal space to hold your wedding service, meal and after party. For us the venue couldn't have been any better and it made our day so special for everyone involved.

My husband and I could not have pulled off such an amazing wedding if it wasn't for all the help and support we received from the staff at the ICA. Our event manager was the most amazing person, she looked after us from the word go and helped us every step of the way. A wedding can be a daunting experience but with the knowledge and guidance of our event manager we were made to feel relaxed and supported through every step.

We would highly recommend this wonderful if you are looking for a beautiful building in an iconic London location then the ICA is definitely the place to be.

The perfect place for our London wedding

Within 5 minutes of visiting the ICA we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The space itself is beautiful with gorgeous high ceilings and big sash windows letting in so much light. An added bonus is the private garden we used for our champagne reception, and the balconies in the Brandon room overlooking the Mall and Horseguards - a total treat and really special for photos.

One of the most important and deciding factors when choosing the ICA for our wedding day were the staff. We’d previously seen some venues that were very rigid, with rule after rule of what we couldn’t do, but from our first meeting with the event manager at the ICA, every question we had was answered with positivity, creativity and a huge effort to make our day as special and personal as possible. We actually missed them when the wedding was finished – they really are such a lovely team.

The food and drink were completely delicious, from the canapes to the puddings, our guests were really impressed. The catering manager was really receptive to our ideas and requests which we appreciated.

The day itself ran like clockwork and we didn’t have to worry about a thing - which is exactly as your wedding day should be!

All in all we could not have hoped for a better experience and would highly, highly recommend the ICA for a London wedding.
