Travel Guest Post: Why Not Have a Wedding in London?


If planning a wedding in London there is so many choices to suit whatever you fancy. Within central London hotels offer a full package for your whole wedding and reception. Plus, you can spend the night of your wedding in their specialist bridal suite right in the heart of the capital. Or chose a more unique venue and then stay overnight in one of the plush apartments in London that are available. Here are 10 ideas:

1. Marriott Hotel, London Grosvenor Square

Impressive 5 star apartments in Mayfair, where you are assigned your own personal Events Manager, for a beautiful wedding experience in opulence and style. As central London hotels go, this is one of the best.

2. Belvedere Restaurant

The Belvedere provides a unique wedding experience. Up to 120 guests, with some of the finest cuisine, a dedicated wedding coordinator, superb flower arrangements, photographers and evening entertainment. The happy couple also meet the head chef for a personal menu tasting session before the big day.

3. The London Eye

An unusual but unique experience riding 135m above London 19 guests, canapés and a personalized floral arrangement all around. At the very top you will be declared husband and wife and open the supplied champagne. Not many couples have such a splendid view on their wedding day.

4. The Barbican Centre

The Barbican Centre offers culture, taste, style and splendor. Tie the knot in the Conservatory amidst tropical plants, fish and birds. Then dine on the Conservatory Terrace overlooking the gardens or the Garden Room itself.

5. The Ritz

One of the most famous central London hotels  and the only hotel in London with a Royal Warrant. Everything is taken care of in style and luxury. Memorable for all the right luxurious reasons.

6. Wembley Stadium

Something more unusual for the sports fans out there is Wembley Stadium. A wedding ceremony at the side of the pitch followed by champagne a marvellous reception and free tickets for an England match for the lucky couple.

7. Eltham Palace

A 1930s Art Deco masterpiece and a stunning locale for any wedding. They provide all the catering, flowers and entertainment. Everything is with style and in keeping with the unique nature of the building.

8. London Zoo

London Zoo really does offer something special for any couple. Get married in one of the animal houses of your choice surrounded by nature. Then a reception in one of the 2 suites, with a bespoke menu to your choice and views over the zoo itself. Very unique and very special.

9. Claridges London

One of the most famous hotels in the world and a stunning venue. Art Deco luxury, combined with a modern twist, unique individually designed rooms and a world-class menu. There is little that can better this.

10. The Science Museum

Inspiring backdrops to any wedding, among the displays, including the Flight Gallery, The Director’s Suite or Making the Modern World.

The lack of rooms in some unique venues is no problem these days. With so many luxury apartments in London, the bride and groom and their party can easily stay in comfortable and roomy luxury before and after the wedding itself.

    Beautiful blog and a great post, Kimberly! London is such a beautiful city and would be perfect for a wedding.
    The option of renting short term accommodation is a good idea because it can often be more cost effective than renting a hotel (and you can fit more of your wedding party under one roof!).
