Weddings that make a difference

Many newlyweds began their married lives celebrating with friends and family here at the Mansion House throughout the 20th century – and The Reader is continuing this tradition for future generations.

The Mansion House is an elegant and memorable wedding reception venue with newly refurbished spaces that can host from 50 to 100-plus guests.

As a charity, we put people first, and you can be sure you and your guests will enjoy the warmest of Reader welcomes. And, by choosing to celebrate with us, you’re making a difference to people and communities across the UK.

We have a limited number of weekend wedding dates available for autumn 2019, so if you’re looking for a venue with a difference, that helps make a difference – fill out the form below to request an information pack or arrange a viewing.

Ask us about tying the golden thread of literature through your special day.
