Reasons to get married in London

The venue of a wedding can really make or break a wedding. It’s the most important part of the day, as it’s the part that will stick in your minds forever. It doesn’t matter if the brides stutter their vows, or the grooms accidentally spill champagne on their suits – as long as it happens in a gorgeous setting. With hundreds of couples choosing to escape to the countryside for their wedding, why not be different and opt for a wedding in London?

The bustling city is home to over 8 million people, from all backgrounds and walks of life. Given London’s diversity, it makes the perfect place to get married. You can make it as quirky or classic as you like, depending on the borough you choose. It’s easy to travel to for guests flying in from overseas, and with thousands of hotels they’ll never be a shortage of places for guests to stay, should they want to make the wedding into a weekend break.

Another great reason to say your vows in London lies in the fact that, due to its huge population and thriving economy, it’s ridiculously easy to source everything else for your wedding. Imagine finding the perfect venue out in the sticks, and then having to get all the flowers, food, cake, alcohol etc delivered there, at exactly the right time… nightmare. With London’s excellent transportation links this will be a doddle, leaving you with more time to enjoy the big day.

Aside from the practicalities, London can be an incredibly gorgeous place to get married. If you’re splashing the cash, you could opt for a wedding in central London, and have the iconic skyline as the perfect backdrop as you say your vows – great for an evening wedding. If you want a more traditional wedding, there are loads of stunning stately homes dotted around London, with lawns and gardens if you want to tie the knot outdoors. If you want something a little edgier, London is home to several very unique venues, that will leave people talking about your wedding for years to come.

Still not convinced? Here’s a few interesting facts about London that will prove the city is so richly steeped in culture that it’s be rude not to.

1. Queen Elizabeth got married in London in 1947 – if it’s good enough for the Queen, it’s good enough for us.

2. If you like music, you’ll know that London is a hub for all things musical. The Beatles played their last gig on the roof of Apple Corps at 3 Saville Row, Jimi Hendrix lived at 23 Brook Street, and years before, Handel lived two door down up 25 Brook Street.

3. We’ve already discussed travel logistics of the wedding – but it may interest you to know that Blackfriars is the only London tube station to have entrances on both side of the Thames. 

      4. If you love a drink, take note that certain pubs in Smithfield and Borough are licensed to serve alcohol with breakfast from as early as 7am! This is to fit in with market workers schedules – but may also suit your guests if they love partying all night!

 

For most marriages or civil partnerships you must give at least 28 full days’ notice at your local register office. You need to include details of where you intend to get married or form a civil partnership. More information can be found on the Government website.
