St Mary Axe, London, UK
London’s beloved and iconic Gherkin has remained a key feature of London’s modern and ever-changing skyline. Create long-lasting memories and invite your guests to enjoy the sweeping skyline while sipping on Champagne as the sun sets over the city.
Our exclusive event spaces on levels 39 and 40 are licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 140 guests. This allows us to invite couples to say ‘I do’ over one of the city’s most impressive views. Dining at the very top, underneath the dome and surrounded by London’s night sky, Searcys creates a wonderfully warm and romantic atmosphere and if there’s one thing we’re passionate about it’s our food. Weddings at The Gherkin are lavishly catered for with bespoke menus created by Searcys at the Gherkin head chef, Daniel Loftin.
Stunning views at the top of the Gherkin- suitable place for any high-class event.
Gorgeous setting, fantastic food, very nice and well trained staff.
This venue is really smart and views over London are stellar.
We had the most lovely wedding here.
Absolutely brilliant venue!
Phenomenal views, service and food. Thank you for a wonderful day!
Had a reception here. Needless to say, the views were exceptional and the service to match.
The Gherkin in London is one of the most iconic buildings as you look across the London skyline and was the perfect setting for the wedding. The whole day was just as incredible as the setting.
We had a spectacular wedding at The Gherkin. The civil ceremony took place on the top floor, with the most amazing views over London. We were so fortunate to have lovely light for the day, a little bit of cloud cover to diffuse the strong sunlight.
We chose the Gherkin in the City of London for our wedding to celebrate in the city that we love living and working in. The top floor of the Gherkin is a stunning location and we were lucky enough to have a spectacular sunset for the background to our...

Good location and good sized venue for a large number of guests. Also, such a cosy atmosphere too!
The Gherkin is such a cool venue that it doesn’t really need much embellishment. We had a beautiful ceremony and when the night fell and far far below us the Bonfire Night fireworks got on the way, the best DJ’s in town worked their magic and got everyone...
What a view! Although with all the building work surrounding the Gherkin at the moment, the view is about to change somewhat. Everyone arrived pretty much at the time they were meant to be taking their seats for dinner. At the very top, where we had ...
The ceremony was held on the 39th floor and then the champagne reception and speeches on the top floor of The Gherkin which was a dream, with light coming from every single direction! This is where we got some of our favourite pictures. At 5.30pm we ...
Having a wedding on the top floor of this London landmark was hugely inspirational. It was a beautiful day!
This is a wedding venue like no other. As the guests entered into the ceremony space at the very top of the building, the look of wonder on their faces was clear to see. If you’re planning a wedding, do it at The Gherkin!
