We held our wedding reception at the crypt under St Etheldreda's church in Farringdon in October and could not have dreamed of a more beautiful and perfect wedding for us. The atmosphere in the crypt is truly magical when decorated with flowers and candles, the food, from the Bleeding Heart Restaurant who manage this venue, was delicious and absolutely perfectly cooked. The team at the crypt are so experienced and organised, and were so accommodating to all of our requests. We had a lot of instructions as we could not set up the room on the morning of the wedding or the day before, and bernoit and his team did everything meticulously- they made it quite clear we were to totally enjoy the day and not worry about a thing. They had absolutely everything under control. They knew exactly how long everything would take and knew how many drinks to supply and they were perfectly generous with the pouring of the champagne!! The quality of all the food and drinks and the quality of staff was extremely high. We had the most incredible day- and would do it all again in a flash with the same people at the same venue, it was truly perfect.
