The Setting

Situated between number 10 Downing Street, Piccadilly Circus and Buckingham Palace, locations don’t come more iconic: the Institute of Contemporary Arts resides on one of London’s most impressive and prominent locations, Carlton House Terrace. The ICA is a vibrant venue with views over The Mall, Big Ben, St James’s Park and the London Eye.

The Vibe

The Nash and Brandon Rooms are filled with original Regency plasterwork and feature floor to ceiling windows that open out onto three balconies overlooking St James’s Park. Designed by John Nash these beautiful and versatile spaces can host civil ceremonies and weddings for up to 90 guests seated in one room, 150 across the two, as well as stand up receptions and parties for up to 150 guests.

The Garden located next to the private entrance is also available for drink receptions.

Event organisation and catering for the day is provided exclusively by Arnold & Henderson, who also run highly acclaimed Rochelle Canteen based in Shoreditch and Rochelle ICA. Arnold & Henderson have been producing and catering the very best weddings, canapé parties, dinners and more for over 20 years. All elements of production can be organised according to your requirements.

With long tables for feasting, fabulous flowers and elegant lighting, no brief is too big or too small for Margot and Melanie’s in-house events team to organise from start to finish. Couples can choose to treat their guests to a family style feast or a more traditional three course service. And as the night rolls on, Arnold & Henderson will of course be on hand with comfort food classics.
