The majestic elegance and secluded beauty of Middle Temple creates the perfect setting for a fairy tale wedding, a unique space that will awe your guests and create memories of a day of wonderment.
Rich history and a deep sense of tradition permeate the atmosphere here. From the towering splendour of the Hall to the tranquillity of the gardens, you’ll be walking in the footsteps of some of the greatest names in history – Shakespeare, Queen Elizabeth I, Sir Francis Drake and many others all trod this hall.
We are licensed to hold ceremonies in all our rooms including the Prince's Room and Hall.
For those wishing to get married in a church, there are several nearby, including the renowned Temple Church for members of Middle and Inner Temple and their families, St. Bride’s in Fleet Street and, for those with a RAF connection in the family, St Clement Dane’s in The Strand.
The striking backdrops and gorgeous details of the rooms create exceptional photographs of your day. From the elegance of the Prince’s Room, reminiscent of a grand drawing room, to the romance of the award-winning gardens, we will work with you and your photographer to ensure that you have beautiful memories that last a lifetime.

We are enormously grateful to you for Saturday’s wedding reception. Everything was managed with efficiency and good humour and it was reassuring to be able to feel –as we did – that all was in safe hands.

I may seem biased, being a member of the Middle Temple, but the event they put on for my daughter’s wedding can only be described as mind-blowing.
