I just love this place so much… The location, the versatility, the in-house catering (yum!) – it really is quite a special London wedding venue. But at the helm, there’s also a pretty kick-ass duo and I thought we’d get to know them a little bit better!
Here’s Nikki & Emma, the wedding pros at RSA House.
Notes from RSA House
Who are the Wedding Team at RSA House…?
The wedding team at RSA House consist of myself, Nikki Hird and Emma Jones our Sales and Marketing Manager. I look after all of the new enquiries, show rounds, planning of the big day, tastings and assist on the day itself whilst Emma over sees the Marketing of weddings and steps in for viewings and meetings where required. We also have a whole team of operational staff from Duty Managers, waiting staff and chefs who all work together to create the greatest wedding possible.
What is your role when working with couples…?
Part of the beauty of the service we offer at RSA House is that our clients have one contact throughout their planning process and on the day itself. The majority of the time is it myself, I will reply to a couples first enquiry, conduct their show round, prepare the paperwork, assist with the planning process, discuss styling ideas, host the private tasting session and final planning meeting and also be there on the day to assist with the time keeping and ensure everything is running as planned.
What do you love about your job…?
Without a doubt the most rewarding part of my job is seeing the end result! I often know my clients for a year or so before their wedding, seeing the reactions in their first viewing, to helping them design the style of wedding then actually witnessing them say their vows is just the most beautiful way to spend a weekend.
What do you love about planning weddings at RSA House…?
I love how flexible we are, yes we have a period building so we need to abide to a few rules but more or less we allow couples creative freedom to create their perfect day. I also love how different the venue can feel. One weekend we can have a romantic shabby chic wedding in our period style rooms and the next we will be hosting a rock themed festival wedding in our Vaults. No wedding is the same which I absolutely love!
What kind of couples choose RSA House…?
We have couples from all walks of life, old and young, from closer to home or further afield. We really do have an eclectic group of couples marrying here, which makes every wedding so enjoyable.
What words best describe your venue & service…?
Venue wise – Charming, versatile and intriguing.
Service and catering – Straightforward, seasonal and innovative.
Do you have a memorable wedding or moment…?
My very first wedding at RSA will always be a fond memory of mine. To this very day it is still the most elaborate, beautiful and detailed Jewish wedding we have had the pleasure in being a part of. I couldn’t have started my time at RSA Weddings with a nicer couple, they really had thought of everything! They were a wedding planners dream and I often refer back to their wedding when speaking to other clients.
Like what you see…? Fancy having a chat with the ladies…?
Lots of love…
