My favourite London wedding venues

17th May 2020

Here are some of my favourite London wedding venues I’ve had the pleasure of photographing at! Having lived in London for pretty much my entire life, I’ve got a lot of love for the city. I really love urban city weddings, and London has so many amazing wedding venues to offer, and such a huge variety of them too. 

You could go for a pub, a warehouse, a museum or a beautiful stately home, the list is endless. Getting married in London can have lots of benefits. It’s an exciting destination for your guests and if they don’t live in London they can make a weekend of it. 

There’s also a huge variety of scenery. Many couples have photographs in front of an urban backdrop and then nip round the corner to the local park or green space so you get the best of both worlds. 

There’s tons of fun transport options, from a routemaster, to walking, even taking the tube! Plus you can still make a proper weekend of it and meet up with your guests the following day for a hungover brunch or breakfast. 

Ok, here we go – my 10 favourite London wedding venues!

 

Islington Metal Works

First up is the awesome Islington Metal Works! My first time here was for a wedding industry Christmas party a few years back. I remember thinking then wow this would be such a cool place to have a London wedding! The building itself is a large Victorian factory which was turned into a metal works in 1925. It’s a very unique space and their team are really wonderful too. They have a tube carriage bar in the middle of the room with fairy lights and lots of cool urban details. Plus you can party the night away until the early hours here!

Syon Park

Up next is Syon Park over in West London. It’s such a beautiful and grand venue. I particularly love the Great Conservatory, it’s the most gorgeous botanical paradise. I’m so in love with the cacti and huge greenery and they make for the most perfect backdrops.

St Pancras

Yes, you read that right – St Pancras the train station! You can get married and have your reception in the beautiful St Pancras Renaissance Hotel next door. But did you know you can also get legally hitched in the actual train station too? Super cool!

The Prince Albert Pub in Camden

The Prince Albert in Camden is my favourite pub wedding venue in London. The owners and staff are wonderful, the food is delicious and the upstairs room is a rustic and gritty blank canvas. You could have the room with minimal decor and it would still look great, or you can also dress it up. I also think it’s perfect for summer and winter weddings, it works all year round. I’ve been here quite a few times, and I always love it. If you fancy seeing more, you can check out Emma and James Prince Albert Camden wedding here.

Devonshire Terrace

Devonshire Terrace is situated just off Liverpool Street and it just feels so… London-y. It’s super sophisticated and has such a buzz about it. You’re in the hubbub of the city, and you definitely feel that when you’re there. You’re just round the corner from some really cool photo spots such as The Gherkin and there’s lots of industrial backdrops to make use of too.

One Friendly Place

One Friendly Place is a 4 storey warehouse in Deptford filled with lots of quirky props and interesting decor. Again, it’s one of those spaces that you don’t need to decorate or go crazy with as it’s already got so much character and charm. There’s also an amazing rooftop view where you can catch the sunset!

The Horniman Museum

I was completely blown away when I first visited the Horniman Museum! The conservatory is such a beautiful room with filled with light, a total dream for photographers. There’s also views of the London skyline if you walk around the gardens.

Ace Hotel Shoreditch

Ace Hotel Shoreditch is a really cool and unique place to get married. There’s loads of quirky colourful street art just a stones throw away and gorgeous scenic views of the city as you get married. Plus the same room gets transformed into the party space and I can think of no better view to party the night away!

Queens House

   Set in Greenwich Park, Queens House is a truly beautiful and timeless place to tie the knot. I really love photographing there because it’s so bright and open. Plus Greenwich is just one of the most lovely areas in London.

Trinity Buoy Wharf

Last but by no means least, we have the lovely Trinity Buoy Wharf. Another one of my favourite London wedding venues, it’s got so many great photo opportunities to offer and is beautiful inside too. There’s views of the 02, Canary Wharf and some really cool industrial backdrops.
