Host your ceremony in the Helene and Johannes Huth Gallery, a wonderful blank canvas space which allows you to bring your vision to life! The versatility of the space means that the room can also accommodate the wedding breakfast and be transformed for receptions and the evening party.

If you’re looking for a more intimate day, including a micro-wedding, then the elegant dining spaces on the second floor could be perfect for you. Boasting floor to ceiling views of leafy Holland Park and fitted with exquisite pewter bars, the sleek Chumsri & Luqman Lounge and Sachs Family Park Room, are a charming alternative for smaller ceremonies, receptions and dinners.

For a showstopping evening affair, the Atrium’s stunning triple height space, offers a truly unforgettable experience. Why not enjoy the building’s dramatic 1960s architecture with drinks on the second-floor balcony, before making your way downstairs for dinner and exclusive exhibition access?

Following the government’s roadmap, the 12th April paves the way for restrictions to lifted, and we are excitedly waiting for wedding ceremonies to return.
