Truly Incredible
Venue Service

By Philip Adlem, on 09 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017

Our wedding is one that our guests still talk about as being incredible and it was largely because of the venue. The views are breathtaking during the day - having our ceremony in the sky above london. The beautiful sunset and then at night the lights of central London that surround you through the 360° created a both a glamourous and magical atmosphere. All this in an iconic internationally renowned building. Couldn't recommend enough. The practical side is perfect too. No weather conditions affect the day, everything in the venue is taken care of by the staff centrally so we did not have any stress or organising to do on the day at all and could take in every moment of an incredible day. No herding around our guests to different places which maximised our day. We are passionate about food and it was amazing! The menu was fantastic and the choices we made were delicious and like nothing our guests has tasted anywhere else. If you're reading this and wondering whether or not this venue is for you, so was I. Go see it, you will fall in love with it like I did!

Thank you!
