One of our friendly Operations Managers will manage the day to ensure that everything goes smoothly behind the scenes.
As soon as we have received your signed contract and initial deposit, we will contact you to arrange your first planning meeting with your Wedding Planner. After this time meetings can be held as required to help put the pieces in place for your big day.
Can the bride get ready at the venue?
Yes. We can make a room available for the bride on the day.
What is the booking procedure?
We are happy to hold your chosen date provisionally for up to 10 days, depending on how soon your planned wedding day is. Once you confirm your day with us we will send you a contract and an invoice for your initial deposit.
Will the flamingos be at our wedding?
Our beautiful flamingos love weddings and will be happy to pose for photos!
How late do you stay open?
Our license allows us to continue serving alcohol until 12.30am from Monday to Thursday and until midnight on Sunday. As our Private Members Club operates on a Friday and Saturday we have to conclude earlier events by 5pm as we need a minimum of two hours to transform the venue.
Can we have a menu and wine tasting?
Of course! Part of the planning process is an opportunity for the bride and groom to come in and try dishes which have been lovingly created by our dedicated Chef. You are also able to select wines to match with the food and our Bar Manager is available to discuss beverage options with you. Once your booking is confirmed we can arrange a menu tasting date for you depending on availability.
Can you cater for children and what age do you classify a child?
Ages from 3 up to 11 are considered children and we have child friendly menus to cater for them. The VIP Moo Room can be allocated as a children’s room on the wedding day. Please see our recommended supplier list for children’s entertainers or crèche facilities.
Can we use our own caterers for our wedding?
Yes. We offer the venue on Sundays for external caterers who must be able to provide The Roof Gardens with a copy of their liability insurance and a risk assessment. The Roof Gardens reserves the right to make the final decision on allowing external caterers access to the venue.
Can I use a supplier who isn’t on your recommended supplier list?
You certainly can. There are so many great wedding suppliers across London we couldn’t possibly have them all on our list. We have listed the suppliers that have worked well at the venue and who we think personally do an amazing job.
