Venue Visits : the DESIGN MUSEUM

Can we just say how EXCITED we are to have London slowly reopening! YAY! What a year it has been for all of us. The events industry was hit hard by the effects of Covid-19 and all of us are beyond excited to get back to planning your event and celebrating after over a year of closing our doors multiple times. I thought now would be a perfect time to restart with sharing venues in the city that we love. So many couples are looking for London venues for their micro weddings or future larger weddings and we are excited to share this venue with you today, the Design Museum!

The Design Museum is a special place to us as the team there is amazing and we have produced some amazing events there. It was exciting to hear that the museum now has their license to be able to host civil ceremonies onsite, which means you can now host your wedding ceremony and your reception at this very fabulous London Museum. If you are not familiar with this gorgeous space then do check out their site here for more information.

The Design Museum is located on the corner of Holland Park, right off of High Street Kensington and a short walk from the underground station of High Street Kensington or Earls Court station. The museum offers four contemporary spaces you can use for your ceremony and four for your reception and wedding breakfast. The spaces are iconic and modern and I like to use the words, fresh & crisp. The spaces provide a beautiful, almost blank space, to add your individual create touch to the venue.

Event Space : The Atrium

I love this space because of the dramatic ceilings that are triple height of the venue. The Atrium is large and can seat 150 guests for a seated evening meal or get creative and seat guests around on the balcony and dance the night away on the ground floor.

Event Space : The Helene & Johannes Huth Gallery

This space has floor to ceiling windows that overlook Holland Park. The Helene & Johannes Huth Gallery is so lovely for a larger ceremony space before heading into the Atrium or as a setting for your wedding breakfast before heading into the Atrium for your evening reception! Truly a space you can make your own!

Event Spaces : The Chumsri & Luqman Lounge and The Sachs Family Park Room

Both of these spaces are intimate but are amazing for a smaller more intimate micro celebration. A perfect pairing to host your ceremony in one and a smaller reception in the other. Both with floor to ceiling windows on one side leading out to the park, they are a hidden gem within the museum.

Reasons We Love It Here:

The museum is modern and contemporary and one of the most sought-after venues in London! The venue hosts hundreds of corporate and private events yearly so I am so excited to see that it can now host weddings there also.

There are multiple event space options to fit to your particular needs. The venue is not a cookie cutter space at all.

We love the location of the venue. Right off of High Street Kensington providing guests easy accessibility to the venue but also on the corner of Holland Park providing a stunning backdrop. The park is also a lovely location to escape for some wedding photos.

The list of approved suppliers is truly top notch. Check it out here.

The Design Museum is a modern and grand place to host your party! We love it and would love to work with you there! Let us know if you want to sit down and talk about plans, we would love to meet you. Contact here!
