Little Henri is a quaint and intimate wedding venue. We picked it because it had three separate areas for ceremony, reception and dance floor, and their brunch food never disappointed. One the day the venue looked amazing. The events manager was accommodating and helpful. The food was very well portioned and delicious. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for something that is different and more relaxed.

It was intimate and fun , it was more perfect than I could ever imagine it to be. Thank you

Little Henri was a fantastic venue! So much space for 100 guests and with a cocktail wedding guests could choose when they wanted to eat, dance and chat. We got great feedback from guests about the food and the Little Henri staff went out of their way to ensure all had a great time! It was a very reasonable price for 5 hours premium alcohol package, cheese table and enough canapés and suppers for everyone. No one went hungry! We recommend.

Thank you so much Little Henri for hosting our wedding. We had such a great night, the food was amazing and the staff were great. Samira helped us plan our day and made sure everything ran smoothly, couldn't have picked a more perfect place for our special day!

Little Henri was the perfect place for our cocktail-style wedding. Planning with Samira was simple and highly professional, she was open to meeting in-person or over Zoom, and made our wedding run so smoothly that we were able to fully relax and enjoy the event. Little Henri provide high quality and reasonably priced food and drinks packages, which we were super happy with, nobody left hungry. Samira and Little Henri worked well with all our other vendors (celebrant, florist, band) in providing them with all the information they needed to operate in the venue. And, it's an excellent cafe, one that we'll definitely visit each anniversary.

Such a gorgeous venue and was a wonderful setting for our wedding; the lower courtyard with flowers hung over the arched doors was wonderful for the ceremony. Samira - events manager at Little Henri - was responsive and helpful to all our many emails and questions; although she couldn't be there on the day she'd set everything up so well it all ran smoothly and staff were well briefed. I also appreciated Samira's/Little Henri's flexibility and eagerness to help make some of our idea work, whether it was a cheese tower (bought elsewhere) plus a modified grazing table, or the last mintue relocation from the upper to the lower courtyard when rained threatened to arrive. We had about 56 people (including us - the bride and groom) and this was a great number for both the ceremony in the undercover, lower courtyard and for the seated reception after.

After having our original venue close down due to COVID, we found Samira and the team at Little Henri by chance, and oh what luck this was! From our first meeting, Samira made us feel at ease with her knowledge of how to make her venue work best for our wishes. The expenses were all transparent so that there were no surprises in the end, and the variety of food offered was ample for what we were looking for. We were able to drop items off the day before to the venue to assist the set up, and leave things at the end of the night. Throughout the evening, Samira and her staff checked in on us regularly- even bringing us plates of food to ensure we ate! We would absolutely recommend Little Henri to anyone looking to have a relaxed style wedding at a venue that is naturally styled.

I just want to thank Little Henri for being so accommodating for a last minute booking. Samira and the team were amazing on the night. The food was excellent and the guests absolutely loved it. Samira even made us a plate and made us sit down to eat as we were so busy doing all night to even eat! If you are looking for a venue for an intimate wedding with delicious food and a family feel that will look after you -look no further. Cannot thank Samira and Little Henri enough.

Fantastic location to get married. The staff are absolutely wonderful and helped us with everything we wanted. The garden is beautiful to get married in out the back and such a wonderful building inside.

10 Feb 2018

The most perfect venue for an inner city casual wedding. Such a beautiful space that minimal decorations are required as it’s natural beauty shines through. We got married outside in the courtyard infront of the green wall, and continued the party into the night. The owners were great with planning and so accommodating with special requests. The food was incredible and plenty of it!

Samira, Boris and the team made our day so easy, fun, relaxed and above all memorable. The venue was magical at night with loads of fairy lights and charm. The food was delicious and plentiful, as were the drinks! The whole team made our day so special. Thank you!
