Steeped in history and breathtakingly beautiful, the Crypt at St Etheldreda’s is a unique setting in which to celebrate your wedding. Set within one of England’s oldest Catholic churches – which also happens to be mentioned in two of Shakespeare’s plays – this historic space is a hidden gem in the heart of the City of London.
The original beamed ceiling, stone floor and rustic columns, which can be adorned with anything from flowers and foliage to fairy lights, or left undecorated, all make for a magical atmosphere in which to enjoy your wedding breakfast, while the natural light streaming through the stained glass windows is ideal for capturing stunning photographs.
Round tables for wedding celebrations of 50-120 seated guests are provided, as is impeccable service from the staff at the adjoining Bleeding Heart Restaurant. Catering is provided by the restaurant, which is renowned for its modern interpretations of French and European classics. Headed up by executive head chef Julian Marshall, who has worked alongside some of Britain’s best chefs including Marco Pierre White and Gordon Ramsay, the restaurant offers a range of set food and drinks packages, as well as bespoke menus tailored to your requirements.
Located on Ely Place – London’s last privately-owned gated street – in the city’s famous Hatton Garden, The Crypt is easily accessible by public transport from both Farringdon and Holborn.
