 Tell Me about Searcys at The Gherkin

One of the most iconic buildings of the London skyline, The Gherkin is instantly recognised by Londoners and tourists alike. Imagine having your wedding day inside this stunning venue, with its 360-degree views of the capital, and extensive attention-to-detail when it comes to hosting special events. Your wedding day will be a talking point for guests for years to come.

Searcys at The Gherkin – as you would expect – create wedding days steeped in luxury and style, but that does not mean couples planning a more intimate wedding are not welcomed too. This venue can help put together a package that aligns with your vision, regardless of your guest numbers.

If you opt for the full wedding package at this venue, you’ll have two floors (Helix Restaurant and Iris Bar) to yourself from 2pm to 11pm. The Helix Restaurant offer sky-high views of London and three course meal of modern British cuisine followed by coffee and petit fours, whilst the Iris Bar one floor above serves a variety of creative cocktails and a range of champagne and wines to suit all tastes.

Micro wedding packages include the use of a private dining space (which can be adapted from one to two rooms depending on guest numbers) from 6pm to 10pm, in addition to a three-course dinner and petit fours.

What makes SEARCYS AT THE GHERKIN special?

Searcys is renowned for its quality food and drink and is passionate about providing sustainable cuisine. Over 90% of the ingredients used are both British and seasonal, including free range eggs, red tractor-approved milk and only line caught tuna. These ingredients are expertly crafted into stunningly original dishes and canapes that you and your guests will adore.

The building itself is licensed until 3am meaning the party doesn’t have to stop just when the party gets going, and with an entertainment licence, DJ facilities and dance floor, that party is guaranteed to be a good one. The Gherkin is fully accessible and air-conditioned so all your guests can comfortably enjoy every element of your day. WIFI is also available if you can’t wait to share those selfies on your social media.

The team will work closely with you to realise all your wedding dreams and vision and can recommend a range of suppliers that they have developed close working relationships with. If you want to personalise the space, you can hire in clear chairs and flowers from outside suppliers too. Just because The Gherkin is an iconic piece of architecture, does not mean your wedding day will be like everyone else’s that take place there.
