Saturday was wonderful. It surpassed all our expectations. The venue was beautiful, the food and drink delicious, and everything ran like clockwork. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Thank you so much to you and the team for all the hard work you put into making sure that the day was perfect!

We got married at the Barbican in September 2013 and it goes without saying we had the most wonderful day of our lives. Julia Woods, who had been our point of contact at the Barbican throughout all the organizing of the day was fantastic. Her calm and friendly approach was really appreciated. We met several times at the venue in the run up to talk through details. Thankfully, Julia was far more organized than we were and made sure we had all the details agreed and sorted in advance. The catering and service staff did a fantastic job on the day. Sabrina’s attention to small details really made a difference – from suggesting extra cushions for guests to sit on during the service to setting out our cheese cake and sides. The food was superb, just as we’d tried at the tasting and it was all served promptly. All the waiting staff were friendly, efficient and very accommodating. My mother in-law uses a wheelchair and the staff made sure everything was set up so she could move easily and enjoy the day. The Conservatory at the Barbican is a really magical place to get married and we would definitely recommend it to anyone considering it for their special day.

The Barbican Conservatory was a great and magical setting for our wedding. Our day was made extra special by the professionalism, support and advice from Julia Woods the Events Manager and the Barbican's catering manager Sabrina and her team. The venue is brilliant especially if you want your event to have that outdoor feel without having to rely on unpredictable British weather! Sam Braysher's jazz trio, Photographer Kris Piotrowski and DJ Simon Desborough, all recommended by the Barbican, were fantastic and excellent value for money. To make the Barbican a perfect Wedding venue Searcy's need to improve their wine list and have a lower corkage fee if you supply your own wine as we did.

Natalie & Gawaine
We had a fabulous wedding day at the Barbican. We hired the Conservatory and the Garden Room. The Conservatory was a magical setting for the civil ceremony, surrounded by tropical foliage, with tropical birds song as we said our vows, and beautiful places by pools with flashing carp amid the greenery where we mingled with our guests afterwards and took photographs, drank prosecco and ate canapes. All very stylish and special. For the wedding breakfast we moved into Garden Room, the food was delicious, the waiting staff worked incredibly hard and efficiently so that everything ran smoothly ( including finding alternative food for guests who turned out to have undeclared dietary requirements...). We must add that from the outset Julia Woods and her team were very professional and listened to what we wanted but managed to set timelines that did not put us under pressure! Our guests commented on the special care and attention they received and paid lots of compliments on the food and wine. They also mentioned it was great not having to drive to the reception everything flowed! We danced afterwards in the other half of the Garden room whilst the children played in the Conservatory under the careful eye of the waiting staff so that they would not escape! Overall an unusual and wonderful venue in the center of London.
