I’m absolutely delighted to introduce The City Rooms in Leicester as today’s Wedding Venue Feature.
Its a fantastic venue for anyone who is looking for a little bit of grandeur and history in a wedding venue… The high ceilings and period details are just stunning!
The City Rooms is a Georgian, Grade 1, listed building in the heart of Leicester City Centre. Whilst the building itself has existed since work began in 1792, since it was taken over in 2004 it underwent a huge refurbishment and restoration project. Since the doors opened for business in October 2006, The City Rooms has been used for many private functions and soon became a popular venue for Weddings. The venue has a licence for civil ceremonies in each of its 3 function suites and can accommodate anything up to 200 guests.
The venue has been very beautifully decorated, in keeping with the history of the building, but adding a few modern twists. The Bar is a stunning part of the venue and features an amazing white staircase. The stairs were originally meant to lead to further bedrooms, however due to financial difficulty during the original building-work in the 18th Century, these were never completed. It now proves a popular feature for photographs in the venue, with the fabulous, opulent wallpaper in the background. The large mirrors, sparkling chandeliers and decorative fireplaces throughout the venue also provide beautiful photo opportunities within this hidden gem of a wedding venue.
The beauty of this venue is its location. It is totally unexpected, giving it the real wow factor, especially when guests walk into the breathtaking bar and Ballroom. It also lends itself to fantastic urban-style photography, utilising the nearby streets for modern photographs against exposed brickwork and brightly painted doors.
The real key to the success of The City Rooms is the young team by which it is run. Together they have a wealth of knowledge, having organised 60 weddings in 2010 and 55 weddings in 2009. They pride themselves on their personalised service, ensuring that the same coordinator is present from taking your enquiry, right up until the day of the wedding. Each coordinator has also worked with many suppliers and so is able to help with recommending other services such as entertainment, florists and photographers.
If you’re organising your wedding in the East Midlands, The City Rooms is well worth a look, it is easily accessible (15mins from the M1 / 5mins from the train station) and truly breathtaking. They have a wedding fayre taking place on Sunday 27th March and you can pre-register by clicking http://www.thecityrooms.co.uk/weddings/wedding_fayre.php
