Seven unusual wedding venues in London

Seven unusual wedding venues in London

Christopher recently shared some of London’s stunning premium wedding venues with you. But luxury isn’t the only choice. This time, he going to look at some of the most unusual wedding venues in the Capital, all of which will make your magical day to remember. So, here are my top seven unusual wedding venues in London:

Kew Gardens

If you want to push the boat out, the glasshouses at Kew Gardens couldn’t be the perfect option. Whether you’re looking for an intimate venue or one that will accommodate a buffet for 400, you won’t find a more stunning horticultural backdrop in the entire capital. Having your wedding meal while sitting in one of the famous glasshouses surrounded by some of the world’s rarest and most spectacular plants has got to be a once in a lifetime experience.


Everyone wants their wedding to reflect their personality, whatever venue they choose. But if you want a truly unusual wedding venue that can be 100% suited to your personality, the blank white space of MKII in Hackney couldn’t be better. Just add… everything! That means you can create the magical venue you’ve always dreamed of for a truly unforgettable wedding, however weird or quirky you want to make it.

Wilton’s Music Hall

If you fancy getting married on stage, Wilton’s Music Hall is the place for you. It’s London’s oldest surviving music hall and still has many of its original features. A real hidden gem. It offers a magical, atmospheric venue in which to celebrate your marriage, especially if you’re going for a dramatic flourish!

London Zoo

Love animals? London Zoo could be the perfect venue, especially if you’d like exotic creatures in the background of your wedding photos. You’ll get exclusive use of either the Mappin Pavilion, which overlooks wallabies and emus, or the Prince Albert Suite, with a terrace balcony overlooking Penguin Beach and Regent’s Park, and you and all your guests will get complimentary access to the zoo during opening hours.

Queen Mary, University of London (QMUL)

If you love books then holding your wedding surrounded by them in the old library of QMUL is bound to be a winner. The Grade II listed building has a three-storey-high domed ceiling, resulting in a light and airy venue. There is enough space for a sit-down meal for up to 240 guests.

Trafalgar Tavern

A venue overlooking the River Thames is high on many couple’s lists when it comes to London weddings. In Greenwich, many chose the classic elegance of the Trafalgar Tavern. This Regency building has floor-to-ceiling windows that complement the elegant luxury of the room, allowing you and your guests to enjoy great views of London’s famous river.

Shangri-La at The Shard

If you’ve got a head for heights, then a wedding held 125 metres above London has got to be the ultimate choice of venue. Holding your wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel enables you and up to 100 guests to celebrate your special day against a stunning backdrop. You’ll get aerial views of London including Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, and St Paul’s Cathedral. Your wedding pictures will be incredible!
