Gherkin Wedding

A wedding at the Gherkin? Its a stunning venue right in the heart of the City of London and such a unique place for your wedding. Affectionately known as The Gherkin, this iconic building is one of London’s most unique wedding venues and prestigious landmarks. Its a stunning place for your wedding and reception. The ceremony room is half moon shaped with the iconic glass from floor to ceiling. This means your get married looking right over London and towards the West End.


Drinks reception is normally on the very top floor which is dominated by the amazing dome roof. Your guests will enjoy the views for miles around. This view only gets better at night as the whole of London lights up! Weddings at The Gherkin are managed by Searcy’s. They manage a number of exceptional wedding venues across London and their service for brides and grooms is fantastic (as is the food!)


I have photographed a number of weddings at the Gherkin  and each one has something special about it. Whether you have your ceremony there or off site, you are pretty much guaranteed an amazing day. There are few wedding venues like it in the world! I love the unique setting for the ceremony and the reception drinks and yet 2 minutes away in the super fast lift, we have all the old buildings of the city including Leadenhall Market which is a great location for a few bride and groom portraits.

If you are considering getting married at the Gherkin, have a look through some of the images below and the links at the bottom to some of my real weddings. Any questions, I am always on 07903 798 755 or email
