We had our wedding at BAC in December 2021, we had a beautiful day and the venue was a stunning back drop.
However, the service was rather disappointing from the beginning. Email responses were very slow, even leading up to weeks before the wedding. Flexibility was challenging with a few hidden costs for extra features, which was frustrating considering the hire of the venue alone is quite pricey. On the day of the wedding adults were served their food first, which left children waiting for theirs, this was quite frustrating because on the day of your wedding you just want everything to run smoothly. Also we paid for bread for the tables, but there was no bread. At the end of the night the events manager ensured me that the rest of the cake would be in the fridge for us to collect the next day, as well as the rest of the flowers that we had paid a lot of money for. When my Dad arrived the next day to collect the flowers and the cake, they had been chucked away; which was very disheartening and upsetting. Following on from this the events team at battersea denied that they had thrown them away and accused us of agreeing to throw the cake away. I don't know anyone who would agree to throw a £500 cake away. To add, I handmade table numbers by pressing flowers in small glass frames, at the end of the night whilst they were packing away, I walked into the back room to collect our things only to find all the table numbers I had spent weeks making smashed all over the floor :( It is these reasons that I would not recommend battersea arts centre as a wedding venue, as the whole organisational process was very stressful and they were irresponsible with our cake and flowers.
One month on and we still can’t stop smiling about it, and those memories are forever. We are so so glad we booked our wedding at BAC. The whole day was absolutely magical, the place looked incredible and everything went so smoothly. The staff were attentive, friendly, and bent over backwards for us, so thank you!

We had the best day, even better than I thought it would be and all your hard work was very much appreciated. The food was perfect, the drinks wonderfully timed, all in all flawless!

The room looked amazing – you’d set it up exactly as we’d imagined. The food was very tasty, the pudding was a hit. We had specific compliments about how well the bar was run, and we’d agree.
