Perfect wedding at St Pancras by Searcys
By Yvonne & Steve, on 02 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Sep 2018
Our wedding at St Pancras station was just perfect: from the magnificent architecture of the station to the friendly and intimate reception in the champagne bar; from our ceremony on the concourse to our honeymoon send-off to the Eurostar; from the Nebuchadnezzar of champagne to the lovely food... a truly unforgettable day in a stunning and unique location!
Thank you Karolina and all of the team at Searcys for making our special day go as well as we possibly could have wished!

It was a pleasure organising our wedding ceremony and reception with Searcys. The preparation was painless, Karolina was available for face to face meetings when needed where we got to sample the champagne and canapés beforehand. We were even advised to use the Nebuchadnezzar we ordered as a guestbook, which has made a stunning memento. The ceremony and reception were well run with the staff attentively topping up our guests. The ceremony was made extra special by Searcys accommodating a choir and flower arch we brought along to make it an event to remember. From start to finish we had amazing help from Karolina. From our first meeting where she explained the logistics, to the food tasting for the canapés and meeting the bar staff to discuss the drinks menu. The staff ran things smoothly all day, helping with the set up of the venue and were great to all our guests. It was an unforgettable day, enjoyed by all our friends and family.
I am so pleased that we picked this unusual venue

Tom and I were thrilled to have our wedding ceremony at St Pancras Grand Brasserie and Champagne Bar and we could not recommend it highly enough to anyone else.
Initially we fell in love with the setting, visually stunning, the ceiling is so impressive and made a perfect backdrop for our photographs. The whole event had a touch of glamour and humour to it, not many people get married in a train station, but still every time we go through Kings Cross on the tube, my husband and I feel like we are visiting out wedding venue, it is such a lovely feeling. We got married in February, and yes it was cold, but it was a talking point for all of our guests (and it gave everyone and excuse to buy a new coat!)
Iwona, the events co-ordinator, was fantastic, she was so supportive and encouraging- the advice she was able to give us was invaluable. She organised seating areas, drinks reception, sound system etc. This took so much pressure off us, and made such a difference to the planning.
I am so pleased that we picked this unusual venue for our wedding.
Thanks for everything

Nothing gives me more pleasure than to recommend the Searcys Organization.
We were really satisfied and happy!
Everything was carried out to perfection thanks to the suggestions and advice from the "famous" Iwona, and above all, our every wish was granted: who could ask for more?!
I am not exaggerating when I say that we couldn't have found a better location and I can say this from personal experience having organized two events for our wedding, one in London and one in Italy where we actually live.
Iwona was our councillor, patient and intelligent, in other words a friend!
St. Pancras Station was perfect, totally different from the usual locations and this was borne out by the guests who were literally captivated!
Thanks for everything....
Nothing was too much trouble
By Kat & Charlie, on 06 May 2016
When we started planning our wedding, I don't think either of us ever imagined we would end up tying the knot in a train station, least of all the one I commute through every day. Now having done it, I have absolutely no regrets.
The venue is iconic and stunning. It made an unusual but fabulous backdrop for the photos and was a real talking point, even with the trains coming and going it all just adds to the atmosphere! I don't think any of our guests really knew what to expect and were slightly perplexed by the choice, but all were in agreement that it was a fantastic choice.
The staff at Searcys, and in particular our lovely wedding planner, Iwona, were brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. The whole process from choosing food and drink, to the order of the ceremony through to being whisked through Eurostar security by our awesome photographer (Sam Lane) and ushered onto the train to Paris was an absolute joy. Iwona really went above and beyond the job required of her which included organising flowers from suppliers at the station, ferrying buttonholes to groomsmen and managing the PA system so the music worked when it should and attentively looking after all our guests.
The food was excellent, we had a combination of hot and cold canapés which really filled everyone up and were not in short supply. We took advantage of the champagne that the bar was promoting that month, which was very good and great value. We had 40 guests in total which worked very well as everyone was seated for the ceremony and we had the reception in the bar area alongside the Eurostar platform. All in all I would not hesitate to recommend Searcys St Pancras Grand as a wedding venue.
Adventure, and travel, and new beginnings

The setting is stunning, the atmosphere ideal. It speaks of adventure, and travel, and new beginnings. St Pancras Station makes for an unusual and memorable venue, with its soaring arches, and romantic references to times past. Iwona, at the St Pancras Grand, is also a pleasure to work with. She is enthusiastic, flexible and devoted to making the day as grand and enjoyable as possible. She will go the extra mile, to help find the right flowers, organize the perfect table, and sort out just about anything at the last minute. An ideal venue for couples looking for that unique place to celebrate a unique moment in their lives.
I cant say enough how fabulous it was
By Rebecca & Jonny, on 06 May 2016
Planning our day at St Pancras Grand was just fabulous from the very beginning. We actually looked at the venue just for the ceremony at first, thinking we couldn't afford to have the whole thing there. However I completely fell in love with the restaurant and it was actually a lot more affordable than I thought. Meeting Iwona also swung it. She made us feel so completely at ease and is so lovely. She really listened to what we wanted and made it all happen with no fuss. Iwona had brilliant ideas, great contacts if we needed them, and ran everything...all while making it look effortless. I can't imagine how hard she worked behind the scenes, but it all went without a hitch. Our day was just perfect. I loved every second of it from start to finish. From the ceremony, to the drinks reception to the dinner, it was seemless and amazing in every way. The champagne and drinks were flowing, the canapes lovely and the meal delicious. I really wanted to make sure we didnt just have another boring wedding menu, and we got exactly what we wanted. Iwona made our menu choices happen for the best price I could find, and having it in a great restaurant meant the food was of a very high standard. I am so glad we found St Pancras and Iwona, and can't imagine a better wedding planned and executed anywhere else. It was emotional but so much fun and was a perfect reflection of us. I can't say enough how fabulous it was. I am still smiling weeks later. Thank you
Our day was the loveliest

Planning our wedding with Iwona at the beautiful St Pancras Grand Brasserie & Champagne Bar was easy and stress free. The venue is absolutely stunning and the perfect place for our nuptials. We love the architecture, the history and the champagne! As we enjoyed a glass of champagne on the day of our engagement, also at St Pancras, we decided how wonderful it would be for our ceremony to take place there. They were flexible with us choosing a date that suited us and within a couple of weeks it was all booked. Iwona continued to give us excellent advice on the next steps. The day was stunning, all was precisely organised and placed with great sensitivity. An aspect to the day that I had not fully considered was the fantastic connection with everyone else in the station who became a part of our big day, by smiling and congratulating us. Iwona is the most incredible wedding planner! She handled everything with style and finesse. If I ever had a curve ball, Iwona calmly told me it was no problem and sorted it. This talented lady even organised and arranged my exquisite bouquets and boutonnières! Thank you so much to Iwona and Searcy's St Pancras Grand Brasserie & Champagne Bar for making our day the loveliest! Jez and Nicci xxx
Like your own Georgian mansion in the heart of London

We're getting married here in a month, and so far everything has been wonderful. It's such a pretty house. You get married in the front hall, then all troop upstairs to the library for the reception before heading to the ballroom to eat and dance. There's an intimate feeling here, and the food is fantastic. The team are very helpful and professional - they do this a lot. Perfect for a wedding of 60-90 people, licensed for up to 100.
