Vaults

Ceremony Capacity - 80 guests

Reception Capacity - 110 guests

Reviews

  • Caroline and Ryan

    ''Thank you so much for all your help in organising Caroline and Ryan's wedding reception. We all appreciated your very professional approach and attention to detail. Everything went according to plan on the day and our guests had a lovely time at the RSA.''

  • Laura Yorston

    For anyone that enjoys architecture and art this is a must see wedding venue. The mural in the Great Room and the painted staircase are show stoppingly beautiful and the venue is filled with natural light. Our guests were in awe of the venue!

    During the planning process our RSA wedding coordinator was friendly, helpful and very professional.

    Another part of choosing the RSA was for the food and drink, it was impeccable in terms of both quality and presentation. It was a joy to spend time with the catering team planning the menu and many of our guests commented on the quality of the food, especially the canapes which are still being discussed now!
    We could not recommend the RSA enough as a wedding venue.
