When it comes time to getting married, you want a location that is as one-of-a-kind and special as you are. Luckily, if you live in London, the city offers a wide variety of completely different places to host the reception and the ceremony. From classic to quirky, here are just a few of the unusual wedding venues in London:
- For a classic and cultured venue, consider the Dulwich Picture Gallery, “the most beautiful small art gallery in the world,” according to the Sunday Telegraph. The venue has space for up to 120 guests for a seated dinner, and you and your loved ones will be able to dine and celebrate surrounded by such artistic masters as Rubens, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Poussin, and Canaletto.
- For a completely different museum environment, consider hosting your reception at the Museum of Brands, Packaging, and Advertising. This space also has room for a banquet of 120 guests, and, while you and the wedding party are still taking pictures, they will have fun examining the 12,000 original pieces of commercial art.
- There are many historically unusual wedding venues in London. One is the Hampton Court Palace, which was renovated and enlarged mainly by King Henry VIII. With 60 acres of beautiful gardens, the famous hedge maze, beautiful Tudor buildings, and a number of rooms and banqueting halls to choose from, you and your guests will be celebrating like royalty.
- Private members-only clubs also make great venues for weddings, with their beautiful facilities, world-class dining, extensive wine lists, libraries, and many other amenities. If you are a member of one of these clubs, or you have a friend or family member who is, you may be able to host your wedding reception here. Some clubs also offer exclusive access to non-members for just such occasions, and are licensed for wedding ceremonies.
- For a stunning outdoor reception, consider renting out space at the Royal Hospital Chelsea, home of the Chelsea Flower Show for the last 100 years. With 66 acres of beautiful grounds, stunning gardens, and buildings designed by Christopher Wren, this venue will make your wedding reception seem like a fairy tale come to life.
- For a somewhat off-the-wall celebration, consider a wedding reception at Madame Tussaud’s. Though they are not licensed to host wedding ceremonies, their facilities are a fun choice for the reception. The space can accommodate dinner dance parties of up to 350. Your guests will never forget exclusive access to one of the world’s most famous museums, as they wander the halls admiring the constantly changing exhibits.
These are just a few of the many options for unusual wedding venues in London. No matter what venue you choose, however, the important thing is that you are celebrating the love and commitment between you and your spouse with all of your family and friends. With that as the focus of the day, the perfect venue is really just the icing on the wedding cake.
