Imagine yourself amidst a beautiful and tranquil outdoor haven, set in a timeless area steeped in history within the heart of Bloomsbury. Combine this with an array of impressive rooms, gourmet food, fine wines and superb service making BMA House a hidden gem that offers everything you’ve ever dreamed of on your special day.
A stunning Grade II listed building BMA House holds a wedding licence within four rooms, accommodating up to 200 people for a ceremony and wedding breakfast. However the venue’s true secret lies in it’s two beautiful and peaceful outdoor spaces; The Courtyard and The Garden.
Designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1911, BMA House has four impressive wedding rooms each with an abundance of natural daylight, offering a blank canvas for a ceremony or reception setting.
Floor-to-ceiling arched windows, in the style of Lutyens, appear in the Snow and Paget Rooms, making them bright and airy. The more traditional Paget Room has beautiful Spanish mahogany pillars and two magnificent fireplaces at either end of the room with mahogany over mantels. Boasting direct access to the Courtyard where couples can toast their commitment to one another, this is the ideal room for both a ceremony and reception. One of their more popular rooms for a wedding breakfast is the Snow Room. Also located on the ground floor, this light room, also offering direct access to the Courtyard, can be transformed into your evening reception space together with colourful mood lighting, creating the ultimate fun environment for dancing.
Their flagship room, the Great Hall, has two small balconies overlooking the Courtyard, which provides the perfect vantage point for photographers to capture group wedding shots. The feature pillars in the room stand from floor to ceiling and are finished with the trademark BMA House gold leaf. A stage at the front of the room provides an ideal spot for a band or entertainment. Ascend the beautiful winding staircase to the charming Prince’s Room, most suited to an intimate wedding, and be in awe of its stunning glass chandelier and abundance of daylight. Circular in appearance, the room features Corinthian columns in the corners, which along with the covering throughout the room are adorned with beautiful gold leaf.
Leading in from the Garden is the striking Garden room. This contemporary space is used for pre-dinner drinks in the case of wet weather. However its 24-foot ceiling offers another beautiful space filled with daylight, together with its modern design, providing the ideal inside space for those smaller receptions. The Courtyard and the Garden. Both outside areas provide the perfect setting for pre-dinner drinks. Their largest outside area, the Courtyard, has a lovely central fountain and intricate gates, ideal for larger wedding parties. The romantic Garden boasts an ornamental pond, offering exquisite surroundings for those memorable photographs in the sunshine.
