For many, Autumn is the perfect time to get married, as you avoid the crowds of the busy summer season yet generally benefit from better weather than Winter or Spring, not to mention the gorgeous colours and generally cosy feeling all around. With that in mind, here are some stunning venues ideal for an Autumn wedding.
Dating all the way back to 1740 when it was built for Richard Doyle, the second and last Viscount Shannon, 21 Arlington Street is a beautiful little slice of history that is now Grade II listed. Found in a prime location in the iconic West End, the venue is mere steps from the world-renowned Ritz Hotel and is suitably elegant enough to live up to the discerning reputation of the area. The interior itself is comprised of 3 private function rooms, with the main Boardroom overlooking the charming Green Park.
Tanner is a restaurant, bar and multi-purpose warehouse event space found in Bermondsey, South London. The main space features pillars for that extra bit of wow factor, with other highlights including the likes of the sleek open kitchen serving up delicious food, the fully-loaded bar sure to keep the drinks flowing, the great quality in-house AV equipment and the friendly service from an experienced team of staff.
Found in the popular Hackney area of London, Clapton Country Club is within comfortable reach of several good rail links, including Rectory Road, Stoke Newington and Hackney itself. Completed in an urban, industrial style, it has a rustic charm that is very much on trend and which lends the space a friendly and welcoming edge. A commercial kitchen, an outdoor seating area and access to smaller studios upon request are also included within hire, making it a very adaptable choice.
Join an illustrious list of past guests that includes kings, queens and courtiers by opting to hold your wedding at Banqueting House. Having been hosting grand gatherings since 1622, all the splendour of this illustrious past lives on to this day courtesy of an abundance of original features and breath-taking attention to detail. Able to accommodate up to as many as 500 guests, they are sure to be impressed by the inherent drama of the surroundings. Meanwhile, the nearest rail links include Westminster, Embankment and Charing Cross.
Centrally located on Trafalgar Square, St Martin in the Fields is very well connected to the rest of the city, being a mere minute from Charing Cross station and within easy reach of Embankment and Leicester Square tube stops. The building itself offers a unique and striking blend of modern and historic architecture, for a wonderful old-meets-new vibe. The older, characterful spaces such as the Crypt and Gallery boast original brick-vaulted ceilings and stone floors for a wonderful dash of tradition that is well suited to a wedding.
