Ironmongers' Hall Weddings

Transport yourself to the grandeur of a Tudor hall at Ironmongers’ Hall, the central London location that has all the elements of a historic, stately country home. Striking architecture and ornate décor create a unique backdrop in this traditional wedding venue, with an experienced team who will create a magical experience for your big day.  

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. Four event spaces are yours to choose from, with the option to hire the whole hall for exclusive use. Consider having your ceremony in one room, drinks and photographs in the charming courtyard, dinner in another and a dedicated area for music and dancing.

The team of chefs are on hand to create a tailored menu for you, from canapes to informal bowl food or a grand sit-down dinner worthy of a Tudor banquet. 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.

Venue Testimonials

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.
