Although high-rise venues are no longer the novelty they once were in the capital, few London landmarks can say they boast uninterrupted panoramic views of the city’s skyline. The Gherkin however, which first opened to the public in 2003, boasts 360 degree views of the capital from its rooftop bar, while its events spaces all guarantee stunning vistas.
The Gherkin’s food, beverage and events agenda is looked after by the team from Searcys. Dating back to the nineteenth century when its founder, John Searcy, catered to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland and their esteemed guests, the brand is renowned for its expertise in the luxury events industry. The talented team at Searcys at The Gherkin understand the diverse and detailed requirements for such a momentous occasion and are only too happy to provide unrivalled care and attention from start to finish.
Searcys at The Gherkins wedding spaces are found on levels 39 and 40, and are licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 140 seated guests. The space can easily be tailored to the size of your party though, whether you want an intimate service with just 10 people in the room, or you are planning a glittering cocktail reception for up to 260 standing guests.
Additional extras include DJ equipment and a dance floor, while be sure to enquire about any special offers, such as complimentary bottles of Champagne for your party to enjoy if you book your wedding before a certain point in the year.
Thanks to Searcys at The Gherkin’s dedicated events team, your wedding can be as personalised as you like. Whatever way you choose to have your ceremony here though, watching the sun set from the 40th floor after exchanging vows with the one you love is a unique experience that is sure to remain with you forever.
