London wedding venues hire guide

Couples normally book wedding venues in London 6-8 months in advance for their ceremonies. The capital offers splendid opportunities for both large-scale receptions and heartfelt intimate celebrations, gala dinners in illustrious banquet halls and avant-garde parties in cutting-edge nightclubs. You can easily make your most lavish dreams come true by using the professional services of top decorators, bartenders, musicians, performers, and wedding cake makers. No matter if you opt for a short delicious picnic or a week-long eventful festivity, your big day will definitely go down in the history of your family and closest circle. To save you time and effort, we did our best to compile an extensive selection of beautiful, romantic, inspirational, and instagrammable locations for all tastes and budgets. Hopefully, our hand-picked list of the most impressive wedding venues in London will help you make a wise choice and organise a truly unforgettable ceremony!

Tips and tricks

  • Calculate your budget in advance. Please plan it realistically and try to make the best of what you’ve got — you might be surprised, but the most spectacular events don’t necessarily cost a fortune.
  • When selecting the locations, don’t rely exclusively on the information that is available on their official websites or socnet accounts. Get in touch with their managers, ask as many questions as possible, and put down all the information in a systematized way — Excel sheets will come especially handy for venue comparison.
  • If you can’t afford the venue of your dream or it is booked on your date, don’t dwell on it because you will for sure find a magnificent alternative. With the help of decorations, you can easily transform the interior of any location into a solemn Medieval castle, a pastoral village in Provence, or a neon-lit cyberpunk district from your favourite anime series.
  • Consider unusual venues, such as art galleries or warehouses. This might help you save funds and will deliver the most wonderful emotions for both you and your guests.
  • Make a themed wedding inspired by your favourite book, movie, or video game. You’ll get incredible photos and videos, and your guests will have immense fun.
  • Book a venue where you can hold both the ceremony and the reception — but please make sure it has the corresponding license. In summer, it would be nice to exchange the vows in the open and then proceed indoors to the party.
  • If the chosen venue has limited capacity, compile two guest lists. First, send the invitations to people from the A list and see how many of the potential guests accept them — based on that, count how many invitations you can send to people from the B list.
  • Try to negotiate discounts with the venue before signing the contract. For example, they might offer a lower price for children’s meals or share with you the contacts of their trusted service providers.
  • To avoid unnecessary expenses, treat your guests with a signature cocktail, wine, and beer instead of a full bar. Also, like this, they won’t get too tipsy.
  • Organise a child-friendly and pet-friendly ceremony. You’ll need to carefully think over many details, but your guests will definitely be over the moon.

How to save on a wedding ceremony

If you want to hold a celebration that your guests will remember for years, you don’t need to take a bank loan for that. We would like to share with you some smart recommendations that will help you meet the budget and experience the most vivid emotions:

  • If you are planning a tight-budget wedding, book an affordable venue. On average, UK couples spend around 40% of their wedding expenses on the venue.
  • The more in advance you book the location, the lower the costs. In winter, the prices for summer rentals are kept at their minimum, but they start to grow dramatically each month.
  • Even popular locations might offer a discount if you book them for a weekday or just a few hours in the morning. Saturdays in Summer are always the busiest and the costliest.
  • Consider booking the location not for the whole day but only for 4 hours — this will be pretty much enough to have fun.
  • Choose a venue that is situated in the centre of the town. Like this, your guests will be able to reach it on foot or public transport, and you won’t need to pay for their transportation.

Of course, there are quite a lot of tricks regarding how to organise catering and the entertainment programme. Please find just a few valuable examples:

  • Invite student photographers or videographers to work at your ceremony: they charge less than their experienced colleagues. Some students will be eager to work for free, for the sake of the portfolio.
  • If you order the cake, opt for a small one and buy a big sheet cake to supplement it. Maybe your mother or grandmother could bake one for you as a part of their blessing?
  • To save on tablecloths and centerpieces, accommodate your guests at long tables. Use the same table decorations for the ceremony and the reception — just ask the waiters to promptly relocate them.

Think outside of the box and exercise your creativity. Avoid templates and turn your big day into a reflection of your unique lifestyle:

  • If you are good at crafts, create DIY decorations, cake, menu cards, and other items. Or maybe your friends could do it for you as a wedding gift?
  • Purchase flowers that are in season, reuse your ceremony flowers for the cake table and use more greenery. Like this, you’ll also prove that you are eco-conscious!

Fix your agreement with the venue in written form. Make sure that everything that you discussed with the managers verbally is included in the text. Read the document attentively before signing it — especially those lines that are typed in small print. After the contract is signed, please save at least two copies for yourself: in printed and digital format. Try to control your emotions while negotiating with the venue and compiling the contract — we know it might be tricky, but rational planning is the key to the success of the ceremony!

Frequently asked questions about wedding venues in London

  • What is the best wedding venue in London?

    The answer depends on your personal tastes and budget. You can organise a wedding in a pub, a restaurant, a community hall, an art gallery, a warehouse, a nightclub, a marquee in a suburban area — options are nearly countless. The more popular the venue, the more months in advance you need to book it. The best ones might get booked 1 year in advance. For less popular ones, the last deadline is 6 months before the ceremony. In our catalog, you’ll find venues of any style, capacity, and pricing category.

  • How to choose a dream location for a wedding?

    First, make a shortlist of the ones that produced a positive impression on you. Second, choose the ones that offer the best value for money. Before making the final choice, get in touch with all the venues that you consider and talk with their managers. They might offer you some last-minute deals, or individual discounts, or other pleasant perks. Also, it’s a good idea to check people’s honest reviews about a particular venue. You can find plenty of reviews online, in social networks and thematic forums. Pay special attention to negative reviews, if there are any, because overly positive ones might be a part of a paid PR campaign.

  • What do I need to organise for my wedding venue?

    You can select a venue that offers wedding packages — in this case, you won’t need to organise anything. Otherwise, you’ll need to take care of food, drinks, music, performance, decorations, transportation, and maybe also heating for the outside area. When you rent a venue without catering and additional services, professionals call it “dry hire”. Some venues can share with you the contacts of their trusted and credible service providers that will offer you a discount and guarantee top-notch quality of service.

  • Should I organise catering myself or let the venue do it?

    Remember that dry hire is not always cheaper than package hire. Sometimes it’s more expensive to organise the catering yourself — to save on this item of expenditure, opt for finger food or buffet. Ask if the location will allow you to bring your own alcohol and what the corkage fee will be. Compare the prices of all the possible options and make a rational choice.

  • Can you have your ceremony and reception at the same place?

    Yes, you can. But please make sure in advance that the venue has the necessary license. Normally couples would hold the ceremony outdoors, if the weather permits, and the reception indoors. Try to exchange your vows on an elevated platform or in the middle of the dancefloor, so that all the guests can comfortably see you from their tables. Also, book a band or a DJ that can play both at the ceremony and the reception.
