Weddings QM – Your perfect wedding reception venue
Celebrate your special day in style at Queen Mary: a wonderfully elegant venue in the heart of the East End of London. They offer some truly unique settings, each one just right for the different elements of your celebration.
You may want to start by welcoming your guests with champagne and nibbles on the Queens’ Building Lawn in front of the iconic Victorian clock tower, or in the elegant Senior Common Room before progressing to the stunning Grade II listed Octagon for a sumptuous dinner.
Dining in the Octagon is an unforgettable experience. Built in 1887 the Octagon was originally the College library designed by Victorian architect ER Robson and inspired by the Reading Room at the British Museum. Restored in 2006, the Octagon’s shelves are lined with brightly coloured books and busts of eminent authors which compliment the beautiful domed ceiling to create a wonderfully atmospheric setting.
You can choose from their signature wedding breakfast menus: Wordsworth, Byron and Shakespeare, or you may wish to work with their dedicated team to create your own bespoke wedding menu – a great option if there’s something you have your heart set on. They are able to cater for all dietary requirements.
At the end the night comfortable ensuite 3 star campus accommodation will be waiting (available from mid June – mid September) meaning your guests will be able to relax and make the most of spending time together without any worries of how to get home. They are also able to block book bedrooms so that all of your guests can stay close together.
