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.
