We loved every second of our wedding at the Barbican Conservatory in November 2015. From the moment we first saw the Conservatory we knew that it would be the perfect place for us to get married and would give us and our guests a day that we would never forget – and we were right! Such an unusual venue, it looked fantastic both during the day and in the evening and we had so many compliments on it from our guests. The staff were brilliant – nothing was too much trouble for the events team, who were able to accommodate all our particular requests for the day so that we could make full use of the space. From the beautiful ... Read more

Our wedding at the Barbican was absolutely perfect. The venue itself is stunning and like nothing else in London (or anywhere else!). From start to finish the whole team were really great to work with on planning our day. If you want a wedding with a beautiful setting, amazing food and drink and staff that take all the pressure off you then the Barbican is for you!

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 ... Read more

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.

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. For music in the Conservatory we hired a Cuban band (Yambu, booked from Salsa Direct - absolutely excellent and impressed even our very demanding musician guests). 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 ... Read more
