Small Weddings

Since 2020, we have become experts in delivering small weddings in a beautiful and safe way. Working closely with the Camden registrars, once the restrictions ease again, we will be continuing to host many ceremonies and receptions in the stunning wooden-panelled music room.
For the time being, we believe that all weddings, civil partnership ceremonies and any associated receptions will continue to be restricted to 15 people. It has been clarified that this maximum number includes all those attending, including the couple, witnesses and guests. However anyone working, for example officiants, photographers, security, staff employed by the venue, third-party suppliers or catering staff are not included.

Should you wish to discuss in further detail, please feel free to contact our deputy Director Victor, ( victor.hall@burghhouse.org.uk ) with any questions and to schedule a tour in March 2021, once allowed.

Hire

There are a few standard guidelines at present for weddings to ensure the safety of all guests and staff, these will be reviewed on a regular basis: 

  • Capacity: up to 13 guests plus the couple 
  • A staggered entry for guests to be discussed in advance, with two entrances and exits to the Music Room.
  • The house will have been deep cleaned before all arrivals.
  • The room will be safely set up before your arrival with all chairs safely spaced out. 
  • We would liaise directly with your florist, pianist and photographer about staggered arrival times.
  • Hand sanitizer will be placed around the house and the bathrooms are regularly cleaned. 
  • We always offer the opportunity for couples to pop by Burgh House the day before the ceremony to run through the timings, answer any questions and drop off anything for the next day.

Our lovely, experienced events team are here to help you plan your perfect day. We can suggest florists, musicians, bakers and photographers, talk you through any questions you may have and help you shape your wedding day.

The cost of hire includes all of the set-up and planning, plus the use of our lovely Bluthner baby grand piano and a dedicated member of our experienced events team on hand throughout the day. 

After the ceremony

Whether you fancy a simple champagne and canape reception, a relaxed evening of bowl food or an afternoon tea, our in-house catering team would be delighted to chat through options and create a bespoke quote.
Please note that we operate on a minimum spend for catered events to ensure the best possible service. For information, please email liam@leafi.co.uk

Kind Words

"...we are  delighted that we chose to get married here - a truly unique wedding venue, in the heart of Hampstead.
In terms of the precautions around Covid-19, Victor and the team at Burgh House did everything possible to ensure that all the correct actions were taken, but we were still able to fully enjoy our day."

"I simply don't have the words to describe how wonderful the venue and the staff were. I literally cannot praise them enough… The venue felt super-safe in Covid terms; the catering was excellent; the staff were very, very professional but also warm and friendly, and of course the building is one of the must-see destinations in London."

"Everything was absolutely perfect so thanks again to the team for being so great. I would recommend in an instant."
