The Mermaid Conference and Events Centre, on London’s South Bank, has launched a ‘Deluxe’ wedding package for its river rooms.

The river rooms provide couples with the chance to get married against the backdrop of the Thames, which is framed by windows spanning the length of each room. The lower river room offers space for up to 300 guests and is suitable for receptions, whilst the upper river room can host up to 500 guests for a reception or 300 for a seated dinner. The services of the venue’s experienced wedding coordinators are included in the package to ensure the day surpasses expectations.
