Our wedding at St Pancras station was just perfect: from the magnificent architecture of the station to the friendly and intimate reception in the champagne bar; from our ceremony on the concourse to our honeymoon send-off to the Eurostar; from the Nebuchadnezzar of champagne to the lovely food... a truly unforgettable day in a stunning and unique location! Thank you Karolina and all of the team at Searcys for making our special day go as well as we possibly could have wished!

From Russell: “It was a pleasure organising our wedding ceremony and reception with Searcys. The preparation was painless, Karolina was available for face to face meetings when needed where we got to sample the champagne and canapés beforehand. We were even advised to use the Nebuchadnezza we ordered as a guestbook, which has made a stunning memento. The ceremony and reception were well run with the staff attentively topping up our guests. The ceremony was made extra special by Searcys accommodating a choir and flower arch we brought along to make it an event to remember” From Aisha: "From start to finish we had amazing help from Karolina. From our first meeting where she explained the logistics, to the food ... Read more

My husband and I had a small intimate wedding reception at Searcys St Pancras private dining room. It was a great night full of great food, excellent cocktails and wine as well as wonderful staff. The Searcy's team were very hospitable and well organized. They helped make our wedding reception run smoothly and create a very enjoyable atmosphere which catered for family, friends and even wee ones. We were able to cater for a variety of dietary requirements and for those under 5 years old. I recommend their Private Dining Room for those who have 12 or under guests as it is perfect for a small wedding. We loved sitting at one large table surrounded by those we love. Thank ... Read more

We only gave six months’ notice and had very specific ideas for our day. We requested a simple morning service, to be held at Searcy’s St.Pancras champagne bar. Following the ceremony, we wanted two hours of exquisite champagne and breakfast canapés before we boarded the Eurostar, with our wedding party, for an evening of celebration in Paris. Iwona worked with the chef to suggest a variety of breakfast canapés that were tailored to our requirements… The resulting tiny quails egg benedicts and miniature smoked salmon and scrambled egg croissants, amongst others, were beautiful and the perfect accompaniment to our selected champagnes. Iwona organised flowers and music and, on the day, ensured everyone was comfortable and welcome. Our lasting memory is ... Read more

My husband and I were married in October 2013 on the concourse at St Pancras. Not only is the venue amazing – like being married in a cathedral – but Iwona Bobowska, the wedding planner at Searcy’s was fabulous. She and the team were so helpful – nothing was too much trouble; they were flexible and above all, fun! When people in the family were stressing out over last minute details Iwona was gracious and responsive. We had a lot of laughter trying out champagne and food and she took care of everything. I really did not have to worry about anything in Iwona’s care. I really felt that she wanted us to have a great day and that we ... Read more

Our amazing wedding at St Pancras champagne Bar was truly magical. We are so lucky to have got married in such an iconic building. Iwona and the team provided a professional service both in the run up and on the day itself to ensure everything went to plan. Nothing was too much effort. If you are looking for something a little unconventional but trendy, reasonably priced and effortless then St Pancras Champagne Bar is definitely one to put at the top of your list! Stunning venue, super Champagne & smashing service - what more could a Bride & a Groom want! Thanks again for everything.

After getting engaged on a beautiful, old routemaster, it seemed only right to marry in a train station. The day was absolutely magical and we couldn't have asked for more. Searcy's was faultless from their staff demeanour to the quality of food. The wedding planner, Iwona, was nothing short of extraordinary. It was her vision and her understanding of our needs that brought our wedding to life. Furthermore, she went the extra mile by adding many embellishments to ensure the venue looked exquisite. We highly recommend this stunning venue to any couple looking for a quirky, urban wedding. Pair that with Iwona and you're sure to have a fabulous day.

My wife and I had our wedding reception at Searcy's on 9th September 2016 and I can honestly say that, without all the help from our Event Planner - Iwona Bobowska - the day wouldn't have gone anywhere near as smoothly as it did! Iwona's attention to detail and willingness to accommodate absolutely any request we had was phenomenal. From assisting in arranging the canapé and wedding breakfast menus, to decorating the private dining room with her own hand made flower arrangements and creating buttonholes for all the wedding party - Iwona had it all covered! Our wedding was planned over six months, and throughout that time Iwona communicated promptly and clearly with me about any requests or issues I ... Read more

We are delighted to be able to say that our wedding on the Grand Terrace was a really fantastic experience for us and also for our guests and, seemingly, the general public! As a venue it works amazingly, very much the more so because it is managed so very well by Iwona - we found her to be extremely professional, reassuring, charming and hard working - very much a pleasure to work with.

Firstly, we can't believe our luck at discovering that we could get married in St Pancras Station, it's one of our most favourite buildings in London. The perfect venue for a unique and romantic wedding! Iwona, during the many email exchanges you were always so responsive, patient and helpful. You made the entire experience of booking and organising the ceremony so easy and effortless. You are a genuinely lovely person and we can't thank you enough for everything you did for us. Your patience in hand tying bows on 72 chairs didn't go unnoticed, we received lots compliments (mainly from the ladies) about how pretty they looked. Thank you again. With love, Juliet & Jonny (3rd September 2016)

Fantastic venue and fantastic service. Iwona helped us every step of the way. We had a brilliant day! Thank you.

Planning our wedding with Iwona at the beautiful St Pancras Grand Brasserie & Champagne Bar was easy and stress free. The venue is absolutely stunning and the perfect place for our nuptials. We love the architecture, the history and the champagne! As we enjoyed a glass of champagne on the day of our engagement, also at St Pancras, we decided how wonderful it would be for our ceremony to take place there. They were flexible with us choosing a date that suited us and within a couple of weeks it was all booked. Iwona continued to give us excellent advice on the next steps. The day was stunning, all was precisely organised and placed with great sensitivity. An aspect to ... Read more

Tom and I were thrilled to have our wedding ceremony at St Pancras Grand Brasserie and Champagne Bar and we could not recommend it highly enough to anyone else. Initially we fell in love with the setting, visually stunning, the ceiling is so impressive and made a perfect backdrop for our photographs. The whole event had a touch of glamour and humour to it, not many people get married in a train station, but still every time we go through Kings Cross on the tube, my husband and I feel like we are visiting out wedding venue, it is such a lovely feeling. We got married in February, and yes it was cold, but it was a talking point for ... Read more

My wife and I, had a wonderful wedding drink at St Pancras Grand Brasserie & Champagne Bar. Everything was very well organized, by the events manager which is in my mind crucial when you have a wedding. The venue is wonderful and we had a lot of positive comments from our guests. The canapés where delicious and the service was remarquable. it was also a great venue for the children who were able to see the Eurostar leaving and arriving at the station. Our only regrets is that it all went very quickly. Luckily, we have some magical memories which we will cherish for the rest of our life. I will definitely recommend this venue to any of my friends ... Read more

We had our intimate wedding here (of just 15 people) at the end of May 2015. From the beginning we were really impressed with the way our query was handled by the venue. There was great communication from Iwona, with all of our questions answered quickly over email or over the phone. She helped us with all of the planning and options for the ceremony. We chose to have our 4pm ceremony, followed by some champagne and canapes rather than a full meal, and went elsewhere for our evening reception. Everyone commented on how fantastic and unusual the venue was - it was so fun and different to exchange our vows in such an iconic and public place! There were ... Read more

I'd like to start by saying Thank You So Much to St Pancras Grand, Iwona Bobowska & Sam Lane (photographer extraordinaire) – my husband and I had the wedding of our dreams because of you all. Just to explain a little, we didn't have the most conventional plan – get married at Searcy's in St Pancras (so stunning!), hire a carriage on the Eurostar to travel to Brussels, & have the meal/weekend away with our closest friends and family) – but thanks to the (Amazing) Iwona Bobowska & staff at St Pancras Grand & the (Incredible) Sam Lane, it became the most fantastic reality. From the very first email to Iwona to enquire about Searcy's I knew she & the ... Read more

Planning our day at St Pancras Grand was just fabulous from the very beginning. We actually looked at the venue just for the ceremony at first, thinking we couldn't afford to have the whole thing there. However I completely fell in love with the restaurant and it was actually a lot more affordable than I thought. Meeting Iwona also swung it. She made us feel so completely at ease and is so lovely. She really listened to what we wanted and made it all happen with no fuss. Iwona had brilliant ideas, great contacts if we needed them, and ran everything...all while making it look effortless. I can't imagine how hard she worked behind the scenes, but it all went ... Read more

Nothing gives me more pleasure than to recommend the Searcys Organization. We were really satisfied and happy! Everything was carried out to perfection thanks to the suggestions and advice from the "famous" Iwona, and above all, our every wish was granted: who could ask for more?! I am not exaggerating when I say that we couldn't have found a better location and I can say this from personal experience having organized two events for our wedding, one in London and one in Italy where we actually live. Iwona was our councillor, patient and intelligent, in other words a friend! St. Pancras Station was perfect, totally different from the usual locations and this was borne out by the guests who were ... Read more

When we started planning our wedding, I don't think either of us ever imagined we would end up tying the knot in a train station, least of all the one I commute through every day. Now having done it, I have absolutely no regrets. The venue is iconic and stunning. It made an unusual but fabulous backdrop for the photos and was a real talking point, even with the trains coming and going it all just adds to the atmosphere! I don't think any of our guests really knew what to expect and were slightly perplexed by the choice (neither of us being keen train-spotters), but all were in agreement that it was a fantastic choice. The staff at Searcys, ... Read more

The setting is stunning, the atmosphere ideal. It speaks of adventure, and travel, and new beginnings. St Pancras Station makes for an unusual and memorable venue, with its soaring arches, and romantic references to times past. Iwona, at the St Pancras Grand, is also a pleasure to work with. She is enthusiastic, flexible and devoted to making the day as grand and enjoyable as possible. She will go the extra mile, to help find the right flowers, organize the perfect table, and sort out just about anything at the last minute. An ideal venue for couples looking for that unique place to celebrate a unique moment in their lives.
