Seasoned Events secures wedding licence at Tower Bridge Walkways

Seasoned Events secures wedding licence at Tower Bridge Walkways

Seasoned Events venue Tower Bridge Walkways in London has been granted a licence to hold weddings and civil ceremonies on site.

The company worked with the Corporation of London and the Tower Hamlets registrar office to secure the licence, as couples wishing to get married previously needed to have their ceremony in the North Tower Lounge.

Now, they can legally wed within the north side of both the east and west walkway spaces.

Raised 45 metres over the River Thames, the 19th century bridge offers views of Docklands, Canary Wharf, the Tower of London, and St Paul's Cathedral. It can seat 70 guests in a wedding format, and double that number once the chairs have been cleared, or are arranged in a seated dinner plan.

Colin Sayers, managing director of Seasoned Events, said: "Since we first started managing the Walkways in 2009, we have always pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved at the venue. We now have the opportunity to offer couples a breathtaking setting in which to exchange their vows."

The news comes less than a month after the company announced it had won a £6m, five-year deal as the sole caterer for the entire Tower Bridge venue, which has three events spaces including the Walkways section.

It had already been the sole caterer for the Walkways space since 2009, and since the announcement said it planned to double its on-site team to deliver events including exhibitions, conferences and parties.

In recent years the firm has also had deals at various other historic sites in London, including the Royal Courts of Justice, the Hampton Court Palace Festival, the Fleming Collection in Mayfair, and the Louise Blouin Foundation.

It has also partnered with London Bridge nightclub Cable and boat company Thames Luxury Charters.
