Lots of couples who have an impressive guest list feel like most London venues are either too small or too expensive. So we’ve ferreted out some of our favourite venues that offer plenty of space for a range of budgets:
Holborn Studios is hugely flexible when it comes to capacity; they’re able to cater for weddings from as few as 20 people to as many as 3000. That’s a lot of aunties you can invite. This is because Holborn Studios has a variety of spaces and layouts available to choose from, so you can move smaller weddings between rooms, or you can invite everyone you’ve ever met.
The sense of scale and the sheer attention to detail at Banqueting House is what makes it such a popular venue. A majestic and highly ornate space that dates back to 1622, it has played host to all manner of Kings, Queens and courtiers, so you’d be joining an illustrious list of prior guests should you opt to hold your wedding here.
Clayton Hotel Chiswick is a more contemporary offering in west London. This 4-star hotel boasts eight state-of-the-art event spaces (including the 400-capacity Ballroom), as well as 227 bedrooms and a popular restaurant and bar. With all these great facilities and top-quality service on offer, it’s ideal should you have guests travelling from far and wide who may need accommodation just upstairs from your wedding.
Sky Garden is home to London’s highest landscaped public garden. Spanning three storeys, this striking event space offers unrivalled panoramic views over the capital through the stunning glass frontage. Conveniently it comes as somewhat of a blank canvas, allowing you the freedom to kit the space out according to your requirements and taste.
The Lighthouse is a newly refurbished venue that first opened its doors as The Regal Cinemas in 1940. It has been sensitively updated, and its Grade II listed status has ensured the protection of many of its original Art Deco style features. The generous space on offer and proximity to public transport makes it a popular pick for big weddings.
One Great George Street is a beautiful traditional venue and offers a range of private dining options with flexible options to ensure you really wow your guests. The Head Chef trained at the Savoy, so you can rest safe in the knowledge that the food will be a very high standard.
