Somerset House, the most spectacular eighteenth century palace in London, hosts weddings, civil ceremonies and civil partnerships within the Portico Rooms or Navy Board. Situated on the North bank of the River Thames, Somerset House has views across the whole of the South Bank, including the London Eye, and Palace of Westminster. The building’s neo-classical architecture and rich history will lend a priceless setting for such special occasion.

On the big day, entrances will be made through the dramatic Strand Vestibule into the public Edmond J Safra Fountain Court, an Italian-style piazza and a stunning location for photographs, your ceremony could then take place in either the Portico Rooms or Navy Board Room, followed by your wedding breakfast within either space and then your evening reception would take place in Seamen’s Hall.
