Everything we wanted and so much more...
Venue Service

By Arlene and John, on 02 Feb 2016

We were so lucky to have our wedding reception inside the Clore Learning Studio at Turner Contemporary. We had everything we wanted and so much more. The spectacular Turner sunset and view overlooking the sea, the art - including the unexpected 360 degree visual delights created by the reflection of Sol Lewitt's wall drawing on the windows at nightfall - all added to the perfect and unique setting This experience was taken to the next level by the brilliant menu and service from Marcio and the Leafi team and the never-ending support from Jennifer and the staff at the Turner. It was this incredible team effort that let us sit back, relax and truly enjoy every moment of the day.

We seriously are finding it hard to express how special, enjoyable and perfect you made our wedding – we loved everything you did for us and appreciated all the time, expertise & help you gave us. You made it feel so effortless; you went above and beyond, so thank you. Also please pass on to the entire team how welcomed we felt. The staff at Turner Contemporary have an infectious energy.

Beautiful, unusual venue with gorgeous sea views
Venue Service

By Meera and Benjamin, on 28 Jul 2013

We decided to get married at Turner Contemporary as I grew up in Kent and really wanted a local venue by the sea. The spaces are amazing, with a really light and airy feel, and you have the option to personalise them with your own decorations. The staff was really helpful and went out of their way to give us the perfect day, and the food is lovely. So many of our friends and family said it was the best wedding venue they'd seen.

Couldn't have been more perfect

By Kate Meakin, on 12 Apr 2013

I'm originally from Margate and we decided to get married at the Turner Gallery.We didn't want anything too formal and also wanted to decorate and design the room ourselves. Our ceremony room had an incredible view to the sea and very tasty food. The day itself couldn't have been more perfect, the food was amazing and the events organizer made sure everything went smoothly without any stress.

Amazing day

A big thank you for all of your helpin organising our wedding at the Turner Contemporary on 21st of July. The fact that the day ran so smoothly was in no small part down to your efforts, and it was a pleasure to have worked with you on getting married at what is already such an iconic venue.
