Thank you so much for all your help with our wedding. I loved every minute and was so happy that we had found such a beautiful venue. The Museum staff were so kind and pleasant to work with, the entire experience was a joy.
Thank you for helping to make our wedding so memorable. It was everything we’d hoped for, and more, and we are totally indebted to the Foundling Museum for helping to make everyone feel so welcome and for making the evening go so smoothly. We had loads of positive comments from our guests about the venue and the organisation, which is entirely down to your team.
We were married at the Foundling Museum and we could not have been more delighted with every aspect of the day. The setting is simply beautiful and with flowers the romance of the Picture Gallery and the Court Room comes fully alive. We would unreservedly recommend the venue to anyone and were particularly pleased that our wedding could contribute to the charitable work of the Museum.
When we started to look for the perfect venue for our wedding, we had a clear picture in our minds of what we wanted: somewhere intimate and classically romantic, whilst at the same time interesting and unique. The Foundling Museum offered us all of these qualities. From the moment we stepped inside the Court Room on our first tour around the venue, we knew that we wanted to become husband and wife in that room.
