Gorgeous views of Tower of London...
Venue Service

By Dan James, on 23 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 02 Jul 2016

My wife Katy and I were married in Trinity House in July, 2016. We had looked at a number of different venues before attending a wedding fair at Trinity House. Seeing this beautiful venue in all its glory allowed us to really see what this place could offer. We decided it was the right location for us that night and we're so glad we did. That Trinity House is a gorgeous setting is obvious to anyone who steps inside. What we discovered was everything else it had to offer. Trinity House has a wonderful setup that allows for a ceremony in the main room with musicians in the minstrels gallery, a private antechamber for quiet reflection after the ceremony and the big reception room for drinks and canapés. All with gorgeous views of the Tower of London and Tower Bridge. And throughout it all, unerring support from the Trinity House staff: we had Zoë working tirelessly with us to ensure every detail was how we wanted, and always willing to let us view the venue again, on our own or with parents in tow, and Edgar and the Trinity House service staff were there throughout our wedding day making sure it all executed flawlessly. There are many aspects of that day which help engrave it amongst the pantheon of my greatest memories, but Trinity House is where I became a husband, and I cannot imagine anywhere else I would have rather been.

The was the best day of our lives....

Trinity House … once we found it there was no other place to compare for our wedding venue. Not only is the place more than amazing (you just have to see it) but you will be pushed to find a better event organiser - Zoe. Every detail was run to perfection on our very special day and, being a perfectionist myself, nothing went un-noticed and I can’t praise everything about this wonderful place enough. It was the best day of our lives and at the most perfect London venue!

The Court Room of the most stunning rooms..
Venue Service

By Ellie Main, on 23 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 29 Aug 2015

No words can really describe how wonderful Trinity House made our wedding day. We knew the second we walked through the door, having extensively viewed venues across London, that we wanted to be married here. Zoe and Edgar were incredible throughout the process; kind, diligent, understanding and very supportive of all our needs. The library, where our ceremony was held, has the most beautiful and iconic background of the Tower of London & Tower Bridge. Not only this but the room itself has so many intricate features you do not have to do anything to ‘dress it up’. From the leather seating to the chandeliers, it is any bride and groom’s dream venue. The court room in which we hosted champagne and canapés after the ceremony is perhaps one of the most stunning rooms in the whole of London. Original historic paintings give you an air of opulence but also a friendly atmosphere. Trinity House provides the perfect location and venue for anyone wishing to have a civil ceremony. Stain glass windows, stunning views and historical features gave our wedding personality and made it the best day of our lives. We will never be able to thank Zoe and Edgar enough for all their time and effort in making our wedding so wonderful. We are so thankful for the memories and that we found this stunning venue in the heart of London… the best city in the world.

..perfect venue for a wedding.

Trinity House is the perfect venue for a wedding. The house is presented perfectly and the space is very flexible. The staff are all very knowledgeable and are keen to help in any way they can. The recommended suppliers were also of an equally high standard. They worked so hard to accommodate us in every way they could before the day (even though we had some outlandish requests) and on the day itself we couldn't ask for more. Zoe and her team were there the whole way through and their attention to detail didn't falter. You would be hard pushed to find a Central London venue like this that will work as hard to make your day as special as you want it and the cost is also more reasonable than you would expect especially as you can supply your own bar. We cannot thank everyone enough for the most fabulous day we had.

Trinity House a most special venue...
Venue Service

By Andy and Aidee Davis, on 25 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 29 May 2015

We had looked at several venues for our wedding and were beginning to give up hope when we came across Trinity House. We were looking for somewhere unique, interesting, beautiful and somewhere that didn't feel like a wedding sausage factory. The room we chose is simply beautiful. We didn't realise quite how spectacular it was until the photos came through. They look fantastic. We also got some fabulous photos on the stairs and there are no end of wonderful photo opportunities around the building and on the green opposite. We also cannot say enough about the team at Trinity House. Zoe and Edgar were simply wonderful before, during and after. They were extremely kind and made the entire experience very personal. Trinity House is not the most well known wedding venue in London but after several weeks of looking around we would say it is one of the most special. Thank you for being part of our wonderful day.

...Anchored in trust, kindness and care.

Our wedding was a gathering of nomads, expatriates and wanderers – and the maritime theme of Trinity House suited us perfectly. Inside the impressive opposing façade, there’s a human scale and warmth to Trinity House that we and our guests loved. Out-of-towners were amazed at the views from the Library Room and the chance to toll the HMS Britannia bell thrilled the children. But what was really for an unforgettable day was the superb support from Zoë Richards and the Trinity House team. Zoë shares her knowledge with a friendly ease that is remarkably rare. Our wedding day unfolded seamlessly and joyously, thanks to her foresight and support. At Trinity House you’ll find some rare features that could make all the difference to your big day. First, the house is remarkably well proportioned. For groups smaller than 100, your party won’t be swamped by the surroundings. Second, its maritime theme saturates Trinity House with a story as rich in its promise as in its past. For a celebration like a wedding, thinking in the future-tense is important. Third, the event team at Trinity House offers top-notch professional support. The imaginative attention Zoë offers couples planning a once-in-a-lifetime event is of the calibre money can’t buy. For one reason: it’s anchored in trust, kindness and care. So what if 36-hours before the big day the baker can’t bake the cake, it’s Saturday and it’s snowing? In Zoë’s hands even big problems melt away.

...History in every room....
Venue Service

By Kim Down, on 23 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 25 Jan 2014

We had been searching for a wedding venue for months but as soon as we walked into Trinity House we knew it was perfect and couldn't imagine having our ceremony anywhere else. It is a truly unique venue and we loved the history in every beautiful room especially the Library with its stunning views of the Tower and Tower Bridge, all of our guests were blown away and we have had so many amazing comments in the months since our wedding. We can't say enough about how fantastic the Trinity staff were especially Zoe who was amazingly attentive throughout our planning and on the day itself, she really couldn't have done any more to make us and our guests feel comfortable. She went above and beyond her duties helping us to organise taxis and umbrellas during an unexpected thunder storm and she even had some lovely advice for me just before I walked down the aisle. Ours was the first wedding of Trinity House's 500th year and to mark it Zoe organised 500 rose petals for our guests to use as confetti which was a really lovely gesture. We can't imagine anywhere else would have come close to the experience we had at Trinity House.

.....Team at Trinity House were professional...

By Brigitte Taylor, on 23 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2013

Trinity House proved to be a superb venue for our wedding. The building and rooms are beautiful and created a great atmosphere for our ceremony and brief post-ceremony reception. The team at Trinity House were at all times attentive, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to ensure everything went to plan. This included several repeat viewings of the House for curious relatives! On the day, Zoe and her team were on hand early to assist and provided great assistance to my now-wife while she was getting ready for the ceremony. The library elicited overwhelming positive comments from our guests and even the registrar commented on how she liked conducting weddings at Trinity House more than other venues. We would certainly agree, and we certainly enjoyed every minute of our day. The team at Trinity House were professional in their capacity in every way- right from the time we booked our wedding ceremony to when we left the building after the ceremony itself.

Very happy memories of the the day...

It was a wonderful family day and Zoë and her team made us all feel relaxed and at home in a beautiful environment. Chamberlains provided fantastic food and everyone was so kind and accommodated the various needs of all four generations of our family, from small children to older grandparents. We all have very happy memories of the day and Trinity House is now a special part of our lives. Thank you all very much indeed.

...quintessential London wedding
Venue Service

By Clarissa Oeser and Dusan Hamlin, on 25 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2012

We had the most amazing wedding ceremony and reception at Trinity House. We live on an old sailing barge on the Thames near Tower Bridge and love this part of London. No venue suited us better than Trinity House with its history and situated so ideally at the river with spectacular views, in the heart of London. Many of our guests came from abroad or outside of London and just loved the drive over Tower Bridge past the Tower arriving in the cobblestone driveway of Trinity House. The grand entrance and sweeping staircase leading up to the gallery with its maritime displays was a perfect backdrop for pictures and wonderful just for meandering around whilst having drinks. The ceremony was beautiful in the magnificent library with its lovely high ceilings and stained glass windows. Zoë and Edgar were the most amazing hosts, always helpful and there for us during preparations and on the day. They had fantastic ideas and suggestions to make this day even more special. Their recommended caterers Chamberlains provided excellent food and the service was impeccable. Our wedding could not have been more perfect and we would highly recommend Trinity House to anyone who would like a quintessential London wedding in an impressive historic building.

Trinity House did a great job...
Venue Service

By Fiona Everard, on 25 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 17 Dec 2011

We had a celebration lunch at Trinity House but not any ceremony. We got married on the beach in Thailand the previous April so it was really just a gathering of family and friends for lunch. There were 64 people and we had Chamberlains catering who did a lovely three-course meal with canapés beforehand. We bought our own champagne and wine and negotiated a reasonable corkage rate which kept the expense down. Trinity House did a great job and both Edgar and Zoë helped with the preparations and Edgar was great on the day.

...great events team
Venue Service

By Jessica Pallot, on 25 Aug 2016Date of Wedding - 05 Mar 2011

We didn’t want to get married in a religious location or a hotel and so we were looking for a gorgeous building in central London. Trinity House was perfect – it wasn’t too big – we only had 79 guests and we could have it all exclusively. Trinity House were also experienced in events, had a great events team and nothing was too much trouble.... Everything we hoped for was achieved. I loved marrying Richard but it was also great that every little thing we planned seemed to work well. I say we planned - Payne & Gunter (the caterers) were fantastic in helping us with all of the things we wanted to achieve. We had a fabulous day!
