    Perfect venue for a London wedding

    I do not even know where to start. Olivia, Laura and the team at RSA House are indescribable. Absolute professionals but also warm and wonderful people.
    Olivia got us through the pandemic, the shifting of dates and is having to completely change the structure of our wedding. Her patience and kindness throughout the whole process was incredible. It felt like we were her only couple because she was so on it and across every detail. It was a shame she was on holiday for our big day but Laura was incredible. Dealing with any hiccups without me even knowing, it was all amazing and without them, I would not have had the best day of my life.

    RSA House is a stunning venue and honestly perfect for anyone who wants a London wedding all in one place. The character and charm was unlike any other venue that we saw- it was perfect. Also, the RSA is a charity and that, for us, was the cherry on top.
    A huge thank you to every single person involved in making our day happen. It was incredible ❤️❤️

    Great Wedding Venue, Staff and Food

    We know it hasn't been easy with the pandemic, but RSA made planning the wedding seem so flawless and smooth, especially at a time where we had to change venues and there was so much uncertainty in what was to become of our special day. We hardly had to worry about anything on your side of things! They were so on point with communication it never felt that we had to wait too long for a reply or update.

    Staff at the venue were great, from greeting all the guests, following the COVID rules to keeping us updated on what was going on next and being so calm and collected. We loved the venue from when we saw the pictures and even more when we had a chance to visit in person. We know that although we were only allowed to have an intimate wedding, the venue didn't feel too big for us. The timing of the day was slick and didn't feel like we were lingering around for too long.

    The food was lovely, tasty selection of canapés just enough not to fill us up for the great dinner that we were looking forward to later that evening. The worry that we didn't have a food tasting session beforehand went out of the window once the food started coming through, we had really positive feedback and the drinks kept on flowing!

    An utterly perfect London wedding venue

    We were so happy to get married at the RSA House. It is a beautiful venue - tucked just away from the Strand - and providing the most beautiful spaces to get married in and enjoy your day. Our original wedding date was in May, but with the Covid chaos we rescheduled for December. When in September, weddings were looking uncertain for the rest of the year, the amazing team at the RSA helped to make our wedding happen in 3.5 days. Throughout it all, the team were amazing - always there to talk to and providing support and ideas. On the day itself, everything was flawless - from the welcome from the staff on the door, to all the details and arrangements in the event planning - we honestly didn’t have to lift a finger on our wedding day, but just enjoy it! Our wedding food was also delicious - Darren and the kitchen team put on an incredible feast with plates that our guests still talk about. We honestly couldn’t recommend the venue more highly - Olivia and her team will ensure you have a day to remember. Thank you so much to everyone at the RSA house for ensuring that we had such a special day! Love, R and G

    Amazing RSA House

    RSA House is a fantastic venue for your wedding and the team there, especially Olivia, are wonderful. Our wedding had to be postponed twice due to Covid and they were flexible and understanding throughout. Having had our big day now, our guests have raved about the venue, the food and what a unique space it is. It's such a treat to have the entire venue to yourself for the day meaning we could get ready, have our ceremony, dinner and evening party all in one space. Couldn't recommend highly enough!

    The most beautiful covid-safe venue

    We wanted to say again how amazing our day was and that we couldn’t have done it without you and the team. Thank you for being so great before and during the event, you guys had clearly worked so hard and planned every tiny detail.

    All the best and thank you so much again for everything.

    Fantastic from start to finish - like working with friends

    RSA House is the perfect venue for anyone looking to have a relaxed wedding / event in the heart of London. Not only is the venue beautiful, tucked away off the bustling Strand, but Olivia and her team are exceptional and will stop at nothing to ensure you have the perfect day. Olivia in particular was a pleasure to work with - always on hand to answer questions and coordinate with suppliers - she approaches everything with serenity, grace and honesty (no hidden extras / fees). Together with the rest of the RSA team, Olivia ensured our special day ran smoothly and felt effortless, allowing us to truly enjoy the moment with our friends and family. In keeping with the grandeur of the Great Room, the chef delivered a spectacular fine dining menu, far above any other wedding catering our guests had experienced before, topped off with some delicious baps at the end of the evening for the revellers still enjoying themselves down in the Vaults. A fantastic venue and a fantastic team all round - I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Stunning venue in the heart of London

    We hosted our wedding at the beautiful RSA House - Both Laura and Olivia who helped us to plan and run the actual day respectively were absolutely fantastic - looked after every detail, pushed us to get things done on time, and made the effort to ensure we could try to have the best wedding we could despite some complex restrictions and changing circumstances due to Covid.

    Day ran without a hitch and everyone had a great time (thanks also to Rupert for helping manage and orchestrate as well). The house team was great, from set up to food to changeovers to AV to clean-up.

    We actually picked the venue off a Virtual Tour and photos due to the start of Covid, but it was even better in person. A number of different spaces allowed us to hold the whole day in the same venue without getting tired of the space

    My (now!) wife and I thoroughly recommend to anyone considering a wedding in the city

    Lovely intimate wedding

    We held our 15 person intimate wedding at RSA house. Olivia was extremely patient and flexible with our ever changing plans / ours concerns in relation to coronavirus and she provided us with comfort that RSA would help us in any way as government guidelines were constantly changing. We have heard of other venues not being so flexible so we really appreciate the comfort and support RSA were able to offer in such a strange and difficult time and we feel very lucky to have got married in December 2020. Olivia and her team arranged a gorgeous ceremony set up for us and were very accommodating and flexible to all of our guests on the day. We had a drinks and cake reception following the ceremony which allowed us to get some lovely pictures inside and outside of the venue. We had initially planned to hold a dinner at the venue, however we found this slightly too expensive for a 15 person wedding (eg cost of flowers, additional venue and staff hire) so opted for a nearby restaurant instead. We had a incredible day and we would like to say a massive thank you to Olivia and her team for helping us get our 2020 wedding!

    We had a truly amazing day

    “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!

    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
