A photo of a wedding ceremony in the Barbican Conservatory

The Barbican Conservatory is one of the most unusual venues in London for weddings, the Conservatory - a lush tropical oasis is home to exotic fish and 2,000 species of tropical plants.

Licensed to host wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, the Barbican Conservatory is the perfect place to host your special day. Once you have completed your wedding vows, let your photographer whisk you away to our secluded couples area, whilst we serve your guests with champagne and canapés.

To complete the picture the adjoining Garden Room can seat up to 250 guests for your wedding breakfast. This newly refurbished room has floor to ceiling windows showcasing fantastic views of the city skyline as well as a state-of-the-art lighting system to create the perfect atmosphere for post dinner dancing.

Searcys, our in-house caterers, will create a delicious menu for your wedding day using fresh, seasonal ingredients.
