Whilst some love a traditional venue for their wedding, others prefer a much more modern setting; one that is equally as beautiful and functional but with a contemporary edge that helps your big day to really stand out. If that is exactly what you were hoping for, then take a look at these great venues available for hire in London now.
Available for wedding hire on Saturdays and Sundays, Coq d’Argent is a hidden gem in the heart of the city – or rather, above it! Found on the top floor of N1 Poultry, this unique offering boasts 2 terraces, 2 central terraces and a rooftop garden, coming to life in the summer as the flowers and trees bloom, transforming the beautiful space into a little oasis well above the noise and bustle of the city. Despite this charming feeling of escapism, you are still very well connected to the rest of London, with the likes of Bank, Cannon Street, Mansion House and Monument stations all being reachable in mere minutes.
Radio Bar at ME London is a stunning rooftop bar, available for hire exclusively in the mornings, from 7:00-10:30am. The stylish and highly contemporary design is sure to impress, but not as much as the fantastic panoramic views out across London’s iconic skyline. With ample space to allow for a guest list of up to 250 people, there is room enough for all your loved ones to join you on your special day. The venue is found close to the River Thames, serviced by its close proximity to the likes of Covent Garden, Temple and Leicester Square tube stations.
The Exhibitionist is described as the next generation of luxury boutique hotels. This unique venue is situated within a set of beautifully restored townhouses, with art being the real star of the show here. With 8 blank canvas gallery spaces on offer, they often carry the work of up-and-coming artists; the stars of tomorrow. This collection is constantly being adapted and updated, meaning that no matter how many times you visit, there is always something new to see. With a whole range of uses available and a late licence on offer upon request, this is a very adaptable choice.
The Oyster Shed is a wonderful riverside venue found right on the banks of the Thames. Vast floor-to-ceiling windows make the most of this great location, letting in plenty of natural light whilst also allowing you to take in views of London in all her glory, including a fantastic perspective of renowned landmarks including The Shard and London Bridge. Available for private dining, drinks parties and exclusive hire, this is an ideal choice for a wedding reception. When it comes to getting there, both Cannon Street and Monument stations can be reached in 5 minutes.
An exclusive penthouse level bar with its own rooftop terrace and conservatory, The Sky Bar is one of the most impressive venues on offer in London, not least because of the wonderful unobstructed views of St. Paul’s Cathedral that you can enjoy from here. With a vast range of beers, wine and bar food and full catering and butler services available if you wish, you really can spoil your guests. Meanwhile, the various audio-visual facilities on offer – including a PA system and LED lighting – ensure a seamless and ambient event. With stylish yet comfortable sofa seating and a retractable roof that can allow you to make the most of any good weather, this is the perfect combination of style and relaxation.
