The HAC (The Honourable Artillery Company) is a historic military venue with a range of classical wedding spaces that are perfect for a traditional celebration. Situated in the cosmopolitan hub of Islington, this manor house wedding venue feels like a destination of its own, surrounded by the resplendent 5-acre Artillery Garden.

The Grade II listed manor house wedding venue was built in 1735 by one of its 2,500 HAC members, who has collected the beautiful ornaments on display that trace the history of the regiment. Throughout the building, there are six stately rooms available to hire, each with its unique charm. From the high ceilings and steams of natural daylight, there are so many beautiful architectural aspects that capture the attention of wedding couples from near and far.

Inside the Georgian mansion, the Long Room is arguably the most impressive event space to enjoy your celebrations, with spectacular outlooks over the Artillery Garden grounds. Its wood-panelled walls are decorated with life-size portraits and the red and gold detailing complement the historic feel. State of the art AV facilities has also been subtly installed to enhance the whole event experience.  

HAC London has partnered with Searcys to create delicious seasonal in-house menus for you and your guests. From intricate canapés and bowl food to three-course banquet dinners, they always source fresh, local ingredients from ethical suppliers where possible. The team will liaise with every couple to ensure all dietary requirements are met and that their wedding breakfast is everything they hoped for and more.
