About RIBA - Royal Institute of British Architects wedding venue

Celebrate your wedding or civil partnership in the Florence Hall, at the Royal Institute of British Architects.

The RIBA is an inspiring, stunning and unique Art Deco venue that will bring glamour and prestige to your wedding or civil ceremony celebration. Welcome your guests with drinks on the beautiful First Floor Landing, its high ceilings and marble pillars giving a feeling of grandeur whilst the grand piano can provide the perfect accompaniment to your arrival. During the warmer months the fabulous terrace provides an outdoor area for drinks.

Stunning

For your reception the magnificent Florence Hall, the largest and most richly decorated room in the building provides the perfect space to delight and amaze your guests. Patterned marble and wood floors, vast floor-to-ceiling windows, and carved stone window surrounds set a grand and elegant scene.

Versatile

We can host seated dinner-dances with beautifully set dining tables and attentive waiting staff. Alternatively we can offer a standing reception with cocktails, canapés and live food stations for your guests to enjoy, with dancing later in the evening. Our offer is very flexible and adaptable to your requirements.

Spacious

The First Floor Landing accommodates 150 for a drinks reception. The Florence Hall seats 200 for a dinner-dance, 250 for a dinner or 400 for a standing reception. If you wish to dance the night away after midnight, the Jarvis Foyer can be transformed into a stylish dancing area for you and your guests to enjoy (additional costs will apply).

Dedicated

The venue and catering teams have vast special event knowledge with a focus on excellence. Giving you a wonderful experience at the RIBA is our priority, from the moment you book your event to the moment you leave us. We’re her to provide the perfect day.

The Ceremony

The spaces licensed at the RIBA for civil marriages and civil ceremonies offer diversity of both style and size. The Aston Webb Room’s leather lined walls and Indian laurel wood joinery presents the ideal opportunity for more intimate ceremonies of 40. The Lutyens Room’s full height windows and RIBA portraits create a light and airy space for 70 guests; while the Jarvis Foyer provides the perfect area for 120 guests.
