Choosing the perfect wedding venue can be a daunting prospect, especially for couples looking for the perfect London location for both their ceremony and reception. It has to be a unique experience, where only the best venue will do, one which offers luxury across the board whilst maintaining the desired level of intimacy and privacy.
Not everyone is in a position to hire a dedicated wedding planner, so it can be difficult to know where to start; sometimes it can require a certain degree of thinking outside of the box to find that perfect location which embodies the importance of the event. Unique Venues of London understands the importance of getting it just right; our members have a wedding package to suit the beginning of any marriage.
We offer an amazing array of London wedding venues within our membership, the perfect location to get married, from period rooms in royal palaces and chic, modern atriums to elegant gardens and stunning parkland.
With a wealth of experience in hosting wedding services and receptions, many of our venues are able to help extensively with the planning process, to create a bespoke and truly memorable function or event. These teams will be able to help take every eventuality into account from: availability, capacity, location, proximity to transport and whether the venue is licensed to conduct wedding ceremonies or only available for receptions.
Working with many of London’s most prestigious caterers, our venues can guarantee a unique dining experience, create exquisite wedding menus and pair the very best food and wine together for a luxurious reception. Long-standing production suppliers and florists can also lift the ceremony to become incredibly personal in terms of theming. Bespoke elements, such as flooding the service room with a certain variety of flower, or a particular type of entertainment for an after-party are achievable. Unique Venues of London members never fail to go the extra mile to try to make such requests a reality.
Our selection of London wedding venues is also able to offer couples added-value experiences, augmenting the occasion, incorporating unique elements and activities to give guests an occasion to remember. This could be anything from a curated tour around one of London’s most famous landmarks, a ceremony conducted on stage at one of the capital’s most prestigious theatres or a reception held over 200 feet above the London skyline.
Combining style, sophistication and unrivalled service, Unique Venues of London offers discerning couples, looking for a luxurious and intimate backdrop to their wedding, everything they could imagine (and more!) at the click of a button.
