The Perfect Wedding
Venue Service

By Janice & Leo, on 10 Jul 2014

We fell in love with Ironmongers' Hall the moment we stepped into it and choosing to have my wedding reception there was the best decision we have made. The venue itself was amazing, all my guests commented on how grandeur the place was, you don't need any other decorations, just let the paintings, tapestries and their own decor speak for themselves! All the staff at Ironmongers' were absolutely fantastic as well. Paulina and her team were extremely helpful from the very beginning of the planning. Weere impressed by their attention to details and we knew we were in good hands. The day itself could not be any better, all the staff were friendly and professional, and the food was delicious! We knew everyone enjoyed the food when we saw many empty plates at the end of the meal. Thank you for making our special day so perfect!

A magical day

From the get-go, I had every confidence that the staff at Ironmongers would pull off our big day. With their depth of experience at throwing such big events, they understood how to schedule the day and take care of all the logistics. It was like having a wedding planner without paying the cost. The venue, of course, is also stunning. A real treasure in the midst of the city.

Amazing venue and top quality service 1 March '14

By Karen and David Gosling, on 21 Mar 2014

From start to finish, the staff at Ironmongers Hall helped to make our whole wedding experience perfect - from their up front approach to pricing (their packages are displayed on the site and there are no hidden extras), to their willingness to quickly answer all our questions, show us around (more than once) and just generally be very efficient, helpful, friendly and supportive. The food and service were excellent and we had a fantastic time going along for our tasting session where we had the hall almost entirely to ourselves. Everything went perfectly on the day, due to Paulina and Gabor's meticulous planning and service. Our guests thought the day was magical. We are still buzzing from the whole experience.

Truly amazing day
Venue Service

By Sophie Vening, on 29 Jan 2014

I kept meaning to write this but the year has passed so quickly. Charlie & I got married on 5th Jan 2013 and it was the best day of our lives partly down the amazing venue and service provided by Christina and Ed. We fell in love with the venue due to its uniqueness - a Tudor style venue is difficult to come by in London. From initial viewing to the day itself the service couldn't have been better. Christina was amazing setting up the contract and helping us to personalise our day for us. We were slightly concerned when she announced she was leaving the company but our fears we're soon put at ease when Ed took over. Nothing was too much trouble - he even took my calls during the Christmas break the week before the wedding! The food was amazing, staff on the day were excellent too. Thanks to all the team there who made the day so memorable.

Perfect Venue For A Perfect Day!

Magda and I had a fantastic wedding at Ironmongers' Hall, it was faultless from start to finish. Paulina and the Chef couldn't have been more helpful, advising us if we were not sure about anything. Their professionalism, skill and flexibility were superb! Our guests were so well looked after. We wish that we could do it all over again.

Absolutely faultless
Venue Service

By Elizabeth, on 04 Jun 2013

We had our wedding at Ironmongers Hall in September 2012. Our ceremony was in the spectacular main hall and we then moved to a canapé reception in the adjacent drawing room. It is a thoroughly impressive venue: the walk in, up the staircase and through to the grand main hall was a great welcome for our guests (or via the lift in my Grandmother’s case!). The communication in advance and on the day was spot on. Ed, Paulina and Christina were so unfailingly helpful and organised, it really took a lot of pressure off of us: we had complete confidence that everything was under control. They also helped us to incorporate some personal touches, such as our friend being allowed to play the rather special old grand piano in the main hall during the ceremony. The catering team who ran our canapé reception were also superb: the service on the day was impeccable. And as for the canapés… it would have been worth it for those alone. We had a tasting in advance with the very helpful chef and I dare say the hardest thing about having our wedding in the Hall was narrowing our choices down to a final selection (still thinking about the mini beef wellington and vichyssoise verrine)!! All the rooms proved a great backdrop for our photos, including squeezing our 90 guests on the staircase for some group shots. After Ironmongers we went on to our main meal and reception in Paternoster Square, which is just a short walk away. My husband and I slipped out a little earlier and made the most of the excellent location with photos on the steps of St Pauls, walking over Millennium Bridge and at the front of the Tate Modern – all in walking distance.

It really was the perfect day
Venue Service

By Ben & Gareth, on 09 Apr 2013

We held our civil partnership at Ironmongers' with 113 guests for a ceremony, drinks reception and dancing to a live band. The day was amazing, food perfect, staff awesome and we can't thank Paulina enough for arranging all of this.

Amazing service, historic location
Venue Service

By Adam Rakich, on 21 Feb 2012

I can't recommend the team and venue at the Ironmongers' Hall highly enough. The venue itself is beautiful inside with an amazing historic feel to it, and despite being in the middle of London you'd never think so once you're inside. The main dining room in particular is spectacular. Quite apart from the venue though it's the staff that make it stand out. Ed and Cristina were fantastic in the run up to our wedding, but all of the waitstaff were impeccably presented and anticipated everyone's needs - our guests received service that would have put most even high end restaurants to shame. Overall, absolutely recommended!

The dream wedding
Venue Service

By Susannah Tilbury, on 08 Jan 2012

We met Ed and Cristina almost a year before our wedding and booked in a matter if days. Through the whole planning process they were attentive, professional, diligent and as interested in the detail as any bride could hope for. Behind the scenes in the few days/hours up to wedding they worked hard to facilitate all our other suppliers getting into the hall without any problems; wine merchants, florist, photographer, band etc. The reception itself was run with such efficiency and excellent service that the staff went almost unnoticed. The ability to offer such level of service ensured the whole reception ran to time and the party went on as long as we could dance for. A number of compliments have been forthcoming regarding the service and the Ironmongers’ hall generally in thank you cards we have received. It is an unusual setting not being a hotel or marquee and many people commented on its magic and the space which allows guests to mingle and relax. I wholeheartedly recommend the Ironmongers’ hall. It is a fantastic way to start married life and I only hope I can find an excuse in the future to work with Ed and Cristina and use the hall again.

Thanks to Michael and his team at the Ironmongers' Hall for all their efforts. Our day was truly memorable and enjoyed by all. Flowers - ask for Bridie Hastings as she did an amazing job.

The most wonderful place to get married in London

By Kate Spanier, on 02 Feb 2005

We received amazing help and assistance from the team at Ironmongers' Hall and the caterers. Everything ran like clockwork and was faultless. Our guests had a wonderful time and it is a wonderful setting to get married. It is hard to know what else to say because it was all so brilliant.
