Beautiful wedding venue
RSA House is the perfect wedding venue. The building itself is just beautiful. With the place to ourselves, we made use of the gorgeous rooms on the ground and first floor for the ceremony, reception drinks and all important photos. Then we moved downstairs to the candlelit vaults for dinner and dancing. It was magical! Such a romantic and private atmosphere - exactly what we wanted. Although everything was brilliant, the real highlight for us was dinner - so many of our guests said to us it was the best food they’d ever had.Sent on 23/12/2020
The whole day ran like clockwork. In fact, the whole experience was straightforward from start to finish. The RSA wedding planning team are with you every step of the way - with a perfect balance of recommendations and reminders and some brilliant suppliers, while also giving you the space to come up with your own ideas to personalise your day. It was then so reassuring to have someone we knew (the wonderful Olivia) look after us on the day itself.
We really can’t recommend this place highly enough - our wedding was everything we ever dreamed of and more. Wish we could do it all over again!

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 GSent on 03/01/2021
