Almost 500 years ago on May 20th 1514  a young King Henry VIII was granted a Royal Charter to a fraternity of mariners called the Guild of the Holy Trinity “so that they might regulate the pilotage of ships in the King’s streams” and so in 2014, Trinity House, the home of the General Lighthouse Authority will be celebrating this pivotal event in British maritime history with a series of celebrations throughout the year.

With its views of the Thames and the Tower of London this beautiful historic house, is perfect for weddings and to celebrate their 500th anniversary any couple who get married at Trinity House throughout 2014 will receive 500 rose petals from the lovely people at The Fresh Flower Company. As well as this any couple who make a booking for the month of May in 2014 will receive £500 off the venue hire.  If you’re not planning your wedding then fear not as any private bookings that are made between today and the 31st December 2013 for venue hire in 2014 will receive a complimentary bottle of Pol Roger Reserve Champagne, which all sounds rather excellent to us!
