The Paternoster is a wedding venue situated right next to St Paul’s Cathedral in London, England. The juxtaposition of the traditional and the modern is an integral part of the Paternoster’s powerfully compelling aesthetic. The Paternoster is not some proud and forlorn isolate, sectioned off and disinherited from shared experiences and joys; like London, it’s a beautiful milieu, a crossroads, a place where the past and the present come together to create a future. This quintessential British pub is the perfect venue for celebrating journeys shared and adventures to come, and they would love to help make your wedding a celebration for the ages.

Facilities and Capacity

The Paternoster is a bright, open-plan venue that offers a choice of event spaces. The Orangery, located at the front of the pub, seats up to 20 people and has large glass windows that afford excellent views of the City of London. At the back of the pub is the charming Snug, perfect for semi-private gatherings and sit-down meals for parties of up to 40 guests. Between these is the raised Terrace. The Terrace is conveniently close to the bar and can accommodate 40 seated guests or 150 standing. You are welcome to reserve a single event space or book the entire venue on weekends and bank holidays. The Paternoster has a maximum capacity of 200 people.

Services Offered

The Paternoster offers bespoke food and drinks packages. Whether you prefer an intimate celebration with just a few of your closest friends and family or a formal three-course meal followed by an evening of dancing, they’ll work with you to make your dream wedding a reality. You’re welcome to decorate as you wish, and the Paternoster’s wedding coordinator will be on hand to recommend suppliers and provide expert guidance and support. Get in touch today for more information and to arrange a visit. The Paternoster team can’t wait to meet you and show you around their magnificent venue.
