The Scene at Ironmongers' Hall London
Nestled between the iconic Barbican Estate and Museum of London, Ironmongers’ Hall is a striking Tudor style wedding venue that makes a grand and unique space to celebrate. Built in the 1920s for the Ironmongers’ Company that goes back centuries, this venue feels like a stately country home in the heart of the City of London.
Step into the entrance hall and you’re immediately transported. The stone flag floors, ornate ceilings, wood panelling, stained-glass windows and elaborate chandeliers create a sense of grandeur, and the artworks and rich tapestries throughout nod to the hall’s history.

Speak to the experienced team who will assist in flowers, decorations and even your wedding cake, and enjoy saying ‘I do’ in a stunning historic venue.

We were looking for a place that would feel intimate, but formal enough to impress the many guests who were flying in from overseas. The venue itself is stunning, the great hall, the reception room - it takes one's breath away, but what really impressed us was the kindness and professionalism of the team. [...] The food was delicious, the atmosphere amazing - it really was a magical evening.
