The Natural History Museum, one of London’s most iconic venues, celebrated receiving its Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships licence this week. As of September 2019, the Museum is able to host official wedding ceremonies as well as larger and intimate receptions, further establishing the Museum as a venue where great moments live on.
Various wedding set-ups and suppliers can create stand out occasions, accommodating from 10 in Dinosaur Gallery to a max reception for 450 in Hintze Hall.
Couples looking to book the Museum for their special day can choose from a range of stunning rooms, whether opting to amaze guests in the Museum’s largest spaces such as Hintze Hall – home to Romanesque arches and Hope the Whale, or Earth Hall – a more contemporary space with a magnificent backdrop of the suspended globe and with celestial maps adorning the walls.
Throughout the venue couples can choose from numerous hidden gems and transform them into settings for smaller ceremonies and receptions. These gallery spaces, from Fossil Way (which contains some of the most complete fossils of prehistoric sea animals in the world) to Images of Nature (a gallery exploring how artists and scientists view the natural world) are packed with items to feature within your experience and theming.
Robert Wetherell, Head of Events and Catering at the Natural History Museum, comments: “We had a wonderful time celebrating our Civil Marriages and Civil Partnerships licence. Our Venue Hire team and fantastic suppliers are raring to go and flex their creative muscle to create some memorable occasions. The venue is a show stopping back drop for any event; we have already hosted so many beautiful wedding receptions, large and small, so we are incredibly excited to be able to open our doors and host our first official ceremonies in the coming months.”
