About Weddings at Queen Mary Venue

A hidden gem of a wedding venue in east London, Queen Mary’s offers a unique setting for your big day. Dating back to 1887, this historic space was originally designed as a community hub with a concert hall, reading rooms and picture galleries. Now, the grade-II listed venue is available to hire as the backdrop for a truly unique wedding. Well-connected via Mile End or Stepney Green underground, as well as Bow Church or Limehouse Docklands Light Railway stops, Queen Mary’s is easily accessible from anywhere in London.

The Octagon, which can accommodate up to 240 guests is a stunning space, with books lining the walls and natural light flooding in from the tall windows. This room was inspired by the reading room at the British Museum and boasts busts of famous writers like Shakespeare, Wordsworth and Chaucer. It is also licensed for civil ceremonies, making that just another thing to tick off the list.

For receptions, there is the private Queens’ Courtyard, the grand Queens’ foyer or the Octagon itself. Wedding breakfasts can be hosted in the Octagon, which can seat up to 240 for a truly unforgettable dining experience under the opulent domed ceiling. Catering at Queen Mary’s is highly customisable to fit your specific needs, using seasonal ingredients from local producers. From banquets to canapes and everything in between, the team will be on hand to meet your every need.

There are various packages available, featuring elements such as a complimentary menu tasting for the couple, crockery, glassware, cutlery, tables, chairs, linen, mirror plates, tea lights, printed menus, easels for the table plan, a cake knife and changing room for the bridal party, to name a few. For more information, simply fill out the form to the right and the team at Queen Mary’s will respond promptly to help you every step of the way.
