BMA House is a stunning Grade II listed building; located in fashionable Bloomsbury, London.

This beautiful red brick building was designed in 1911 by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens. The design is neo-classical Palladian and incorporates Portland Stone facades, grand archways, stone Corinthian columns and Westmorland slate roofs.

The building is centred on a courtyard with memorial fountain. Furthermore a private garden with pond, housing physic plants with medicinal properties can be found to the rear of the building; and provides a tranquil outdoor space for reception drinks and photos. The Garden is also famous for being the grounds to the house of Charles Dickens where he is said to have written some of his most famous novels.

BMA House underwent a major refurbishment in 2008 to lovingly restore its rooms in keeping with their original design and Grade II listed heritage.

Holding your ceremony in our beautiful Grade II listed House will guarantee a day to remember. BMA House is licensed for the solemnisation of marriage in The Great Hall, The Lutyens Suite and The Prince’s Room.

Additional details:


BMA House jives with the launch of its new 1950’s wedding package.

Brides inspired by the glamour of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly will instantly fall in love with the new 50’s themed wedding tea party launching at BMA House. Celebrating the best of the bygone era, this magnificent Grade II listed building in the heart of London will offer the perfect setting for the occasion.

Enjoy a quintessentially British afternoon tea with all the vintage trimmings of the 50’s including a choice of classic gin based cocktails, Martinis or Champagne and a selection of divine sweet treats. Bespoke tea packages start from £16.95 + VAT per person.

“There is something cheery yet so glamorous about the 50’s,” says Rebecca Hurley, Wedding Planner at BMA House. “It is definitely an era which is making a comeback onto the wedding scene, brides love it because it screams ‘perfect vintage’. The beauty of this approach is that couples can take our idea as a simple concept or they can recreate an all singing all dancing 1950’s experience for their special day with milkshakes, Pina Coladas in pineapples for a more modern twist, polka dot table clothes and a juke box. You name it we can give your day the right amount of 50’s vibe you want.”

Served on beautiful vintage china with dainty teacups hired in from Beyond Vintage, the afternoon tea will feature an assortment of handmade savoury bites followed by delicious scones with clotted cream and jam. Centre stage will be the wedding cake, served as a tiered set of delicate fairy cakes, decorated to your colour theme.

BMA House boasts four opulent spaces, all licensed for wedding ceremonies. The Prince’s Room is ideal for hosting more intimate receptions, accommodating up to 60 guests. While the spectacular Great Hall offers all the grandeur and sophistication needed for larger celebrations of up to 200 guests.

Alternatively the Garden and beautiful Courtyard offer photogenic backdrops for standing drinks receptions during the summer.

Working with trusted suppliers BMA House can also organise an array of 50’s styled add-ons to meet every couple’s 1950’s dreams. Contact us for a bespoke proposal.
