/ Last Updated:

Imagine this: a gentle breeze, warm sunlight, the soft sound of live music setting a serene backdrop, and you, standing in the midst of an enchanting courtyard, saying “I do” under a canopy of blue skies. Sounds like a dream? Well, dreams do come to life at BMA House‘s newly licensed outdoor ceremony space – the Courtyard.

Nestled in the heart of BMA House, the Courtyard is not just any space; it’s a canvas waiting to be painted with the moments of your special day. Picture signing your marriage register beside a striking fountain, your friends and family basking in the sunlight. It’s the kind of magic you’d want to frame forever.


This idyllic setting accommodates wedding ceremonies ranging from intimate gatherings of 50 up to 200 guests. And when it comes to personalising your day, the sky’s the limit. Choose from an array of stylish seating and layout options to create your perfect aisle. Want to make those memories last? Leave it to us to whisk your photographer (and perhaps you too) up to one of our charming balconies for breath-taking aerial shots. Imagine tossing your bouquet from up high.

But the beauty of the Courtyard isn’t just about the “I dos”. Extend your celebration under the sun with drinks and canapés served in this stunning space, or perhaps venture to our second outdoor area, the Garden, for a change of scenery. With endless possibilities, our dedicated wedding planners are here to ensure your outdoor wedding dream is realised, step by step.
