Boasting a plethora of iconic landmarks, contemporary arts spaces and pulchritudinous architectural structures, the city of London is one of the most desirable locations in the world to get married.
However, with 100’s of churches, hotels and other estates to choose from, selecting that fairy-tale wedding spot can be a daunting task. However, help is at hand. Here is a guide to some of the best wedding venues and reception rooms the UK capital has to offer.
Grand Connaught Rooms
Set in the main entertainment district of the city, The Grand Connaught Rooms has proven to be a popular choice for many starry-eyed couples searching for that magical ceremonial destination. With palatial arched ceiling wedding suites and a rooftop terrace with breath-taking views of Covent Gardens, there really is no better alternative spot in terms of style and class.
The Connaught Rooms is also renowned for hosting other major events aside from weddings. The national Football Association recently celebrated their 150 anniversary there and the world-famous UKIPT London card tournament checks- in every year so rest assured you and your guests will receive first-class hospitality and service.
This Mayfair Venue was built in the 16th Century before later being converted into an idyllic townhouse by Lord Revelstoke. The picturesque courtyard is perfect for hosting drinks receptions and the upstairs drawing rooms provide a stunning backdrop for the perfect wedding breakfast.
Festooned with neo-classical ornamentation at every corner, Chiswick house in West London is the perfect choice for a vintage ceremony. All wedding receptions are held in the main rotunda which houses an impressive art collection and historic furnishings. The landscape also boasts a beautiful marquee that is equipped to host up to 350 guests.
If you’re searching for that perfect wedding venue that fuses traditional and modern quirks then look no further than the Grade I-listed Stationers’ Hall that was built in 1673. Three function spaces feature a range of mod cons such as LCD screens for the perfect post-ceremony disco but venture out on to the glorious courtyard garden and you can stage pictures amidst the scenery of a 250-year-old oak tree.
For a more cosy and intimate celebration, East London’s Wilton’s Music Hall could be the perfect place for you and your guests to experience a magical day. In the building’s early days, Wilton’s was an alehouse and concert room but nowadays it has been transformed into a delightful reception spot illuminated by fairy lights and candles interiorly.
