Perfect Wedding Day
Venue Service

By Sally Dickson, on 16 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 12 Nov 2016

Will and his team hosted our wedding at The Happenstance last year, we had the most wonderful day and cannot thank the team enough for their hospitality and attention to detail. The venue was perfect, the food was delicious and the service was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble! Thank you Happenstance for being a huge part of our incredible day! xx

Great Venue and Fantastic Staff
Venue Service

By Eric Palmer, on 10 Dec 2015

My husband and I were lucky enough to snap up Paternoster Square Corney and Barrow for our wedding reception in late October 2015 and I can honestly say it was the best day of my life in part to the fantastic experience we had here. The backdrop of St Paul’s cathedral is stunning especially in the evening with its dramatic lighting! Inside the vibe is warm but sophisticated with a separate room for dinning and partying. One word of advice when looking at the venue – try to go and have a look when they are setting up for another wedding, it is hard to really appreciate how the space looks on weekend compared to a weekday. On to the actual day – my husband and I arrived with our guests and were greeted to a glass of fizz as we went off to have our photos – the guests then enjoyed there drinks and canapés – there was plenty to go around and there was a great atmosphere. Many of our guests commented on the staff - were really attentive topping up drinks and offering the canapés and actually had smiles on their faces and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. They were also lovely and chatty and not robots as you find in some places. I cannot express how happy we were with the staff, a massive thank you particularly to Melody, Tobi and Sara – they really looked after us and our guests and called everyone cabs when we were worse for wear!
