Located on Tower Hill with direct views of the Tower of London, Trinity House is the working home of the General Lighthouse Authority with the ambience of a private Georgian residence. Behind the Georgian facade is a treasure trove of maritime artefacts, including the brass bell of the Royal Yacht Britannia - a quintessentially English venue for impressive weddings.
What makes Trinity House a unique wedding venue?
Trinity House is uniquely located to impress wedding guests with surroundings which offer a distinctly English heritage feel...from views of the Tower of London (lit at night) to high-ceilinged interiors with tall south-facing sash windows. Ships models, valuable paintings of royalty and illustrious personages from England's maritime past are on display in the House's five rooms, reception hall and corridors ('the Quarterdeck). The House is available on an exclusive use basis and as it is generally closed to the public, is a venue not generally familiar to wedding planners and clients. The experienced events management team has garnered numerous accolades in the past for their efficient and professional expertise.
What is a typical wedding like at Trinity House?
A typical wedding at the House comprises a welcome reception in The Court Room for up to 130 guests where guests can admire the whimsical 'tromp l'oeil' ceilings, recreated by William Holman Hunt in the 1800's, and paintings of royal benefactors including King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I. The Wedding Breakfast for up to 130 seated usually takes place in the Library at the far end of the House which offers direct views of the Tower of London. A Minstrels' Gallery is a highlight of the room which also features a showcase of maritime silver treasures and spectacular crystal chandeliers.
