3rd party catering
The National Portrait Gallery was a fantastic venue for our wedding. The venue only hosts one wedding per night so you have the option of using whichever space you like. Matthew who looks after the catering was easy to work with and was able to guide us through a lot of the process. Rachel the events coordinator was really helpful with scheduling and supplier contacts. The food on the night was perfect, all our guests said the food was fantastic. The staff working the wedding provided great service and were never intrusive. The gallery provides security at the entrance to the venue and there is free parking underneath where guests can leave their cars overnight if required. I would highly recommend this venue - the building provides a stunning background for photos as well!
