Michaela and Gabriel had been together for almost four years when they got married at The Law Society. On the 31st of May, we were delighted to host this happy couple as they came together in matrimony.
The couple wanted their wedding to have a London theme, to celebrate the city that brought them together and show Michaela’s family, who would be visiting from Germany, why they love it so. So the hunt was on, and, thanks to its central London location, Michaela and Gabriel soon found themselves exploring The Law Society.
For their wedding, Michaela and Gabriel had the beautiful building all to themselves, and they used the Reading Room for their ceremony, the Common Room for their wedding breakfast and the Old Council Chamber for their canapé and drinks reception.
Michaela suffers with a number of food allergies, which can often make dining out more pain than pleasure. We wanted to ensure that on her wedding day at least, Michaela could eat the same delicious dishes as her guests. So The Law Society’s chefs devised a range of dishes which were gluten and lactose free, but also offered all the flavours the couple longed for in their wedding breakfast. We made sure that, as well as a selection of starters, mains and desserts for the couple to taste, we offered plenty of advice at the menu tasting, to ensure that Michaela and Gabriel received their perfect wedding meal.
The meal took place in the Common Room and opened with a smoked Suffolk ham hock terrine served with house piccalilli and a vegetarian option of goat's cheese mousse with pickled Biggleswade beets and cucumber. The main course was rump of Cornish lamb with ratatouille and crushed potatoes or ratatouille melanzane. Pure spring/summer magic brought the meal to a close: elderflower jelly with iced clotted cream.
"I can only recommend The Law Society as a wedding venue. Everything was perfect! From all the pre-meetings I had to the day itself. Very well organised in everything and I felt in very good hands throughout the whole day. They made our day very special which I will be always grateful for.
"We got loads of compliments from our friends and families on the venue, which was just stunning with all the decorations, lights and colours. The staff were very helpful, always there for us and able to accommodate every special request. A top-notch service that you don’t find that often.
"The venue itself is so amazing that I actually secretly hope that one day I will be there again as a guest seeing another happy couple getting married in this magical and stunning venue.”
