Stunning venue, even better service
By Michelle Lo, on 20 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Sep 2018
From the moment we walked into the venue, we knew it was the perfect place for us to hold our wedding. However, it was really the excellent service we received throughout the planning and during the day that really set this experience apart. We had an incredibly ambitious schedule for the day, and Gabrielle was so wonderful in assisting and helping us finalise our day and looked after any special accommodations we needed for older guests, guests attending part of the day and even last minute changes. The service they provided meant it was a (nearly!) seamless experience and they were so great even during the day when we were running 30 minutes late. Our guests were so incredibly impressed with the venue and told us how flawless everything was. We loved having our wedding here and would recommend the venue and in particular the staff & service to anyone!
Made our dream wedding possible
By Michele & Richard, on 23 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018
From the first moment we viewed the venue, we were completely bowled over and we knew we just had to have our wedding here, and so are so glad we did. Our guests were immediately in awe of the venue, from the beautiful Brunel room to the incredible Great Hall that continues to take our breath away, even though we’ve seen it so many times. The service we received was world class. From Gabrielle, Yvonne and Constans to the wait staff, everything was executed with the utmost professionalism. The food was also very well received, from the portion size to the taste and look. Everyone said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding, which as a real foodie couple, we were delighted to hear. We had guests from near and far, most from the UK but some from Hong Kong as well, and everyone was unanimous in their overwhelming praise for the venue and how the day went. Throughout the day, we were free to mingle with guests and take our photos rather than worry about the setup and behind-the-scenes workings, which is a true testament to how well the team handled every single aspect of the day. Our only regret is that the day is over, as we’d love to do it all over again!
Magical, perfect, accessible and friendly
By Kathryn & Hugh, on 20 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 10 Feb 2018
We searched London for a location that could support up to 150 guests, we wanted a space that felt open, welcoming, sepulchral - we wanted to not have to stress or worry about the organisation and be free to enjoy the day when it came.
One Great George street fulfilled all our requirements and more! It was the perfect location for our wedding. Described by more than one of our guests as 'magical' the evening went off without any hitches thanks to the tireless work of the staff and the tenacious planning and support by Gabrielle. The pre-wedding support was detailed (perhaps more than we expected) but critical for the seamless execution on the day. The food was delightful and everyone complimented the spread. I can't thank the team enough. Anyone who can marry at this location is lucky and in for a great time. If we could award 6 stars, we would. Perfect.
One additional, but important note, is that the venue is fantastic for those with disabilities, with great access, hearing loop support and staff support throughout.

From start to finish the venue has been a delight to work with. Their guidance throughout made the process so much easier. Every detail was thought of, for you and for your guests, all the small touches that really made the difference! Having the trust in them made the day so much more relaxed for us too.
The venue, the food, the service, the logistics, the people...everything was just so elegantly done! Our guests have not stopped talking about it!
Thank you again Gabrielle, Shelly and One Great George Street!!
An amazing venue
By John & Diana, on 04 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Dec 2017
Once you see One Great George St, everything else pales into insignificance.
You then book it and see your guests enter the building with their mouths wide open before their jaws hit the floor when they see the Great Hall.
Amazingly, the service and attention to detail matches the venue - everything is delivered with military precision but in the most subtle way.
Gabrielle and the team go above and beyond, leaving you at total ease.
The Perfect Venue
By Louise and Nick, on 17 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Nov 2017
We only had to view three venues - we were so blown away when we saw One Great George Street that we went for it straight away. The whole team is so accommodating, and they will bend over backwards to ensure that you have the perfect wedding day. What’s more, they will always give really useful and timeless advice, being well aware that you are unlikely to have any expertise in wedding planning!
The food at the tasting was fantastic but being unapologetic foodies, we were worried that the quality of food would depreciate when being cooked for 200 people. This was absolutely not the case. All of the food was of excellent quality and many of our guests commented on the deliciousness!
Even with the beautiful venue, amazing food and incredible location, the single best thing about the venue is the events manager Gabrielle. She was the glue that held the entire day together, and she will ensure your day passes flawlessly.
Without sounding too clichéd, the day was perfect from start to finish, and One Great George street was the perfect place to celebrate it. Every aspect ran smoothly, in the most glamorous location for a wedding reception in London. If you are in two minds about where to hold your wedding reception, just book One Great George Street, sit back, and enjoy the best day of your lives!
Just A Perfect Day
By Caroline & Jonathan, on 30 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Sep 2017
From the gorgeous setting to the delicious menu One Great George St gave us the wedding reception we wanted rather than the one they provided. We chose the venue principally because of the wedding planner Gabrielle whose assistance is included in the package. She is completely charming and totally unflappable and her guidance and organisation in the run up to the day helped us navigate our way through all the details The food and beverage manager Shelley and the chef couldn’t have been more helpful either when it came to choosing the food and drink. The meal was superb as was the service and everything ran like clockwork. We used OGGS’s suggested florist Toby Roberts and booked the DJ through Nathan Hasssall, another recommended supplier, and both met the high standards of the venue. Everyone said how much fun it had been and many that it was the best wedding they’d ever been too; that in a large part was down to Gabrielle and her team. Their efficiency and professionalism allowed us to relax and enjoy our day and we can’t thank them enough.
We can’t say thank you enough
By Marine & Shaady Hussein, on 25 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 09 Sep 2017
We can’t say thank you enough to Gabrielle and her team for making our wedding day run so smoothly and beautifully, from day one of planning to long after the wedding day itself. We spent a lot of time looking for a venue that could cater to our needs and we’re so grateful we found One Great George Street for our special day, which really has it all: great central location, beautiful setting, delicious catering, capacity for large numbers and a late license that kept us all dancing well into the night. Gabrielle went above and beyond to help us plan the details of our day, which was invaluable considering we were planning our wedding from abroad, and she did it all with a smile and really made us feel that our day was important to her, and no email or question too much or too trivial! The food tasting in particular was a real pleasure and, on the day itself, we didn’t have to worry about a single thing, all the suppliers came together seamlessly and all of our guests had nothing but praise for the whole day. We can’t recommend OGGS enough as a venue for any event, we will always have such lovely memories of the time we spent there both during the wedding and over the course of the year planning it with Gabrielle and her team.
Private and classy central London location
By Amanda and Tom Sin-Ward, on 17 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017
We had a wonderful wedding experience at One Great George Street. We originally planned to have our wedding at a London hotel however this place had privacy (rented the whole venue) which the hotels could not offer. There isn't any private outside space however the iconic Westminster buildings e.g Big Ben are easily accessible.
Gabrielle, Shelly and the rest of the team were incredibly helpful and provided excellent service during the lead up and on the day. Their recommendations for their in-house florist and DJ were very useful. Also the wedding menu tasting was exquisite!
We have had numerous compliments and frankly couldn't think of any thing that should have been done differently.
The best wedding venue in London!
By Sarah Hillyer, on 09 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 20 May 2017
The best part of this venue was the wedding co-ordinator Gabrielle. From start to finish she was amazing. Her level of professionalism and attitude towards even the simple of questions was outstanding. She was always a phone call away whenever we needed information or guidance. She was incredible on our day and made sure everything was set up to the standard we wanted and ensured everything ran smoothly. On the day, all the venue’s staff were excellent including the toastmaster that comes with the wedding package who was exceptional. The only thing to consider when booking this venue (and other similar venues I’m sure) is to fully understand ALL possible costs at the outset. When we did the original booking, it worked on a dual-price basis- a fixed fee for the venue hire and then a per head cost for food and wine as it was not possible to use external caterers. However, as the planning went on towards the wedding day, we found there to be numerous additional costs which when added up, added a significant premium onto the original quoted price. Of course, these were for extra things we wanted and not forced upon us. However, some of these additional costs were verging on the ridiculous and certainly felt like they had a “wedding” premium. For example, if you have more than 4 suppliers needing to be served food, there would be a c. £100 charge for staff to serve them this food (as we had 5 suppliers, this seemed excessive). Ideally, the venue ought to provide a full menu of these extra costs at outset so you know what they will be before you’ve committed yourself. But this aside, we were extremely happy with the venue and were pleased to say everything went without a hitch.

What an amazing wedding my daughter and son-in-law had last weekend. I've lost count of the people who said that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to - including their own! Nicola, Gabrielle, Shelley and in fact the whole team were a delight to work with, charming and professional. The entire day went so smoothly, the hall had the most amazing wow factor and the food was absolutely delicious. Thank you all so much for such an amazing day
The wedding of our dream.
By James & Sonia Peters, on 08 May 2017Date of Wedding - 06 May 2017
If you are thinking of having a wedding, One Great George Street must be your number one option. After seeing what must have been 25 venues we were sold the moment we walked into the building. You have to see it to believe it. With St James’s park on your doorstep, you are unlikely to find a more romantic place to get married. The wedding venue planners, Nicola and Gabrielle are two of the nicest and most professional people you will ever meet. They made the whole planning process seem so easy. They were always happy to help from the moment we decided on selecting One Great George Street. Many of our friends said it was the best wedding they have been to. The service was impeccable, the waiting staff were incredible and the food delicious. There is nothing ‘my wife and I’ would change. To put it simply, it exceeded all our expectations. I know everyone writes something similar and that there wedding was the best. All I would say is, go to the venue, meet Gabrielle and Nicola, stand in the middle of the main hall and imagine your first dance with the love of your life. After that experience, you will not want to get married anywhere else.
