We had a truly amazing day
Venue Service

By Julie & Tony, on 19 Dec 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2019

“Thank you so much for all of your help and assistance on the lead up to and on the actual day of the wedding. We had a truly amazing day and couldn’t have asked for more. All of our guests have said they had a wonderful time and loved the venue. Many people actually went as far as saying it was the best wedding that they had ever been to - as such I think we can safely say it was a success. I will miss working with you on the wedding arrangements and would absolutely like to meet up with you again when I am back up in the city. Other than that we would just like to thank you again for making our day everything we dreamed it would be. We have memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Absolutely loved it and wish we could do it again! Very best wishes and sincere thanks to you and the whole team at the RSA”

Everyone was commenting on how flawless it was!
Venue Service

By Rosie & Kieran Dawson, on 21 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Oct 2019

We had the most amazing day! Thank you so much for everything you did, it all went so smoothly and everyone was commenting on how flawless everything was and what a great venue. It was all perfect. My mum’s friend has been in catering for years and is so fussy, she said the staff, food and wine were amazing so if she has approved then it definitely went well! Thank you for being so great with everything and making sure it all went smoothly, it honestly looked so amazing. Looking forward to a proper catch up. Rosie xx

Thank you so much for everything in the run-up to the day. We were so happy to have chosen RSA house and our guests all absolutely loved it. Special mention to the chef - we had a lot of comments on the food, including lots of happy Vegans!

A Day to Remember
Venue Service

By Mrs L Harrington, on 12 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Nov 2012

Being quite gothis in nature, my husband and I wanted to marry in a candlelit vault, which is what initially drew us to the RSA. What an incredibly lucky thing too! From the planning to the delivery on the day the venue staff were amazing. Every detail was looked after, and we had a very enjoyable and stressfree day. Alongside the impeccable service, the facilities offered by the venue and the quality of the food and drink were outstanding. So many of our guests commented on how wonderful the meal was and how beautiful the venue was. We feel very privileged to have married here, and can't recommend it highly enough to others. Mr & Mrs Harrington

Better than we could have hoped for
Venue Service

By Anna Milne, on 16 Mar 2013

We had the most amazing wedding in the vaults at RSA house in January. The vaults are perfect for an atmospheric, candle lit winter wedding. From the outset Elise at RSA was amazing - nothing was ever too much trouble and we loved how RSA were so flexible in terms of how we used the space. For example we really wanted lots of candles and this as not a problem, whereas at other venues it would have been. We had our wedding breakfast in the vaults too and our guests commented on how lovely it was to have one long table where they could all see each other. Our guests also commented on how delicious the food was! The location is incredible - so central but also ideally tucked away from the busy Strand. We took advantage of the location and had lots of photos on the Strand! I couldn't recommend RSA highly enough and Elise went above and beyond throughout the build up to our wedding and on the day itself. Although I visited the venue many times before the day, it was better than I could've ever hoped on the day. I wouldn't consider another London wedding venue.

Totally Awesome
Venue Service

By Jules O'Shea, on 02 Mar 2013

What can we say about the RSA? We would thoroughly recommend the RSA as a wedding venue. The whole team made everything so easy - the day ran so smoothly and it's due to the professionalism of the entire team, from our wedding planner Elise to all the staff serving drinks and food!! All our guests commented on how wonderful the venue was - we had pre-dinner drinks in the Vaults, dinner in the Benjamin Franklin Room, and moved back downstairs to party all night. The food was delicious, and the bar was extremely well stocked! Even though we married on a Wednesday (12-12-12) it really felt like we were the only ones in the building! Downsides? None that we can think of (apart from the whole day going so quickly - testament to the organisation!) - Thanks to the whole team - totally awesome!!

Perfect venue
Venue Service

By Jen & Ant, on 19 Feb 2013

We would thoroughly recommend the RSA as a wedding venue. The Events Manager and team were superb with regards to the planning and organisation of our day and made it all very easy. The day ran like clockwork and everyone had a fantastic time. Many of our guests commented on the excellent quality of the food and said how much they loved the venue. We had the whole place to ourselves so made use of several rooms. Our ceremony was held in the Benjamin Franklin Room, the wedding breakfast in The Great Room and the evening reception down in the Vaults. The only downside was that the day flew by so quickly!

Just fantastic
Venue Service

By Ewan and Hannah, on 12 Apr 2011

Every aspect of the venue and the staff we dealt with, in particular our wedding events manager was better than we expected and just fantastic. The venue itself made an enormous impact on each and every one of our guests and the friendliness of staff and the quality of the catering helped make the day perfect day!
