London is jam packed full of interesting locations, picturesque corners and open spaces, old buildings and modern architecture. The choice of venue for a wedding is quite overwhelming from tiny churches to the biggest cathedrals, small boutique hotels, amazing restaurants, colleges, old buildings and new, water themed venues and country retreats. Where on earth to start? Well hopefully some of the hints and tips below will provide a good starting point!
The Royal Naval College Greenwich
The RNC is set in the most amazing location right next to the Thames. Imagine the bride, or indeed the whole wedding party, arriving by boat, disembarking at the waters edge and going onto a drinks reception with some of the grandest old buildings in the capital as the back drop. It really does give the opportunity for some of the best wedding photography in London and has an unforgettable sense of atmosphere and history.
Wedding ceremonies themselves can take place outside or in many of the historic rooms with a wide choice being available from the splendour of the magnificent Painted Hall to the more intimate Admiral’s house. The venue has a full planning and advisory service available to help couples decide upon the best location and use of the buildings for their particular day. There is also exclusive use of the venue’s duty manager on the day to ensure that everything goes smoothly and the team have access to some of the best chefs, caterers and other wedding suppliers that the capital can provide.
The Royal Naval College has to be one of the top venues in the capital, it certainly packs some punch in the historical buildings stakes and provides amazing opportunities for impressing your guests. However it might not suit all couples, you may be imagining something much more intimate and low key. Something more personal and customisable. Hopefully you will find more inspiration in future posts!
