The top floor of the Searcys’-run venue, formerly known as 30 St Mary's Axe, was used as the setting for Michael’s proposal to Janine.
The events team recorded 10,000 additional visits to the website during the programme. Joel Claudstre, club director at Searcys’ Gherkin said most people didn’t realise they could hire the Gherkin, let alone that it has a wedding licence and private dining rooms.
"There were almost ten times more visits to the private hire section of the Gherkin’s website than on our previous record day, and we fielded queries from as far afield as Canada, with several of these looking certain to become bookings," he commented.
