In life, there are many things that you will have to plan for and depending on your path a wedding is one of them. But, as always you will find that organisation, deadlines and time frames are ultimately the key to your wedding day success!

Whether you are a couple that has decided to grab the bull by the horns and want to get knee-deep in the planning process, or a couple that would prefer the help of a wedding planner from the very beginning or on the day, whatever your decision there are many challenges that you may face when deciding to plan the wedding of your dreams in London.

Firstly, whether or not you decide to get a wedding planner, or have wedding day management the main goal on your big day is for you and your partner to have fun and to take in as much as you can without the added stresses of making sure that everything goes ahead as planned!

London is not only the United Kingdom’s capital it is also one of the oldest cities in the world, and it’s brimming with a plethora of amazing, historical, chic, alternative and modern wedding venues for you to choose from - that are also available on a variety of budgets.

Our top two London Wedding Venues are:

Horniman Museum

Featuring a picturesque Grade II listed Victorian conservatory, the venue offers couples a unique glass

environment that lets the outdoors in. In addition to this, it also has a Bandstand and Pavilion for hire. Plus, surprisingly for London: It also has a farm!

Kew Gardens

Its beautiful Orangery is world-renowned, and with 300 acres you would expect that it is only available for larger weddings but that is not the case.

Tucked away in its beautiful surroundings you will find Cambridge Cottage that seats up to 80 people making it the perfect venue for a small or medium-sized wedding breakfast and reception.

But with its many benefits, having a wedding in London also comes with its challenges. These include traffic that can make timings difficult to stick to especially if your ceremony and reception are taking place in two different areas of the city. In addition to this, there may also be events taking place that you will have to factor into your plans. Plus, the great British weather can change dramatically from day to day. You may have difficulty finding a venue that has it all, for example, many venues are stunning but have a lack of outdoor space and vice versa.

However, the pros out way the cons. London has an amazing transport system, offering your guests the option to drive, take the train, bus, tube, tram and more! You will also find lots of local suppliers in one place. Furthermore, there are lots of iconic buildings and backdrops that are typically London and loved the world over for you to take amazing pictures.
