The Reception Hall, with its sweeping staircase, houses a range of remarkable maritime artefacts, including the original brass bell from the Royal Yacht Britannia, that bear testament to the prominent role played by Trinity House in the nation’s maritime history. Located on historic Tower Hill, this venue enjoys direct views across Trinity House Gardens to the historic Tower of London and the discreet elegance of the venue lends an ambience of a grand private residence. The largest room in which to host your ceremony and reception is The Library, which accommodates 130 guests for your ceremony and 180 standing. The room features a fine collection of silver and boasts a minstrels’ gallery facing the venue’s three east windows. The Court Room has the character of a grand salon in a stately mansion with a deep cove to the ceiling and many fine paintings and portraits. The carpet is the second largest single-loom in the British Isles (the largest being at Windsor Castle) and depicts the Arms of the Corporation of Trinity House granted by Queen Elizabeth I. This space seats up to 60 guests. Gold crested leather chairs and tables are offered to guests to use on a complimentary basis as well as the use of an elaborate silver ceremonial sword to cut the cake. TWO TEMPLE PLACE 020 7836 3715 | Two Temple Place is a grand house, situated in the middle of London and is a celebration of late Victorian design and skilful craftmanship that makes this grand building look more like a home. Surviving the war, the house holds history and is a gem to any who comes across it. With a warm and dramatic finish, the interior allows for your own personal touches to be added and the high vaulted ceilings create a feeling of space. Surprise your guests with a journey through the secret door in the wood panelled walls and into the majestic Great Hall for your ceremony and wedding breakfast. This space accommodates 120 seated guests. Later into the evening, you and up to 150 guests can dance the night away in the grand Lower Gallery overlooking the Thames at Victoria Embankment. The beautiful courtyard acts as a suntrap in the summer months where celebratory drinks and canapés can be served and the sweeping staircase, colourful stained-glass windows and ornate marble fireplaces will wow your guests as they have done for generations.
