Do you have in-house catering, or preferred suppliers or are couples free to choose their own caterers?

Yes, guests are free to bring as much alcohol as they like with no corkage fee, the only restriction being that it can not be sold as we don’t have a license for that.

Wimborne House has a rooftop with incredible views of the London skyline which can be accessed for wedding photographs and Perseverance Works is situated in a secluded oasis courtyard, perfect for those romantic snaps! We recommend taking these pictures before it gets dark as no lighting is permitted in these areas.
What’s your best advice to couples when choosing their perfect wedding venue?
Research, research, research – A chic city wedding is perfect for many couples, but you have to be prepared to search for suppliers and don’t always stick to the first one you find and communication really is key! We’d rather hear from you constantly running up to the day to make sure everything is perfect on your special day.
Any finally, what are your favourite moments from previous wedding you’ve been involved with?
When we receive feedback like this…
“Planning my wedding wasn’t exactly my favourite thing to do – especially when our original venue fell through just before we were about to send out the invitations! Searching for a new venue felt so daunting I was almost at the point where I wanted to cancel the whole thing, that’s until we came across the Loft at Wimbourne House – it was absolutely perfect! A super stylish space with the boho charm that we craved.
Upon meeting Hannah (who managed our wedding booking) I knew that this was the right choice – she made me feel totally at ease straight away and in the months that led up to the big day she was always super patient when it came to my lengthy emails and countless questions. The day itself was amazing and all the guests commented on the venue and how cool it was.
The catering firm that Hannah recommended were incredible too and the food was delicious – as a bride you are told you won’t get a chance to eat but I made sure I did it was too good not to! Looking back I am so happy that the first venue did fall through as I know my wedding would not have been half as special if it hadn’t of happened at the Studio Loft.
