The award-winning Museum of London Docklands, located on the banks of the River Thames in Canary Wharf, has announced that the venue is now licensed to host weddings and civil partnerships. The converted Georgian sugar warehouse will host ceremonies for the first time in its 200-year history.
The museum is licensed for evening weddings of up to 250 guests and offers a range of distinctive spaces. From the exposed brick walls and original pitch pine columns of the Muscovado Hall, to the sun-drenched Quayside Room with its panoramic views of West India Quay, each space provides a stunning setting for your 'I dos'.
Couples looking for the added wow factor can request exclusive use of the museum's inspiring galleries. Each gallery offers an ideal setting for pre-dinner drinks and photography, allowing guests to take an atmospheric stroll through the mysterious winding streets of the museum's recreation of Victorian Wapping, or to explore the museum's fascinating objects, which date from the 1600s to the present day.
Sarah McQueen, venues and hospitality manager at the Museum of London commented, “We're delighted to be able to offer couples the ultimate setting in which to exchange their vows. We can't wait to host our first ceremony for what will truly be another historic moment for the museum.” Room hire for weddings at the Museum of London Docklands starts from £3,500 plus VAT.
