Five Small Wedding Venues in London

The dreams of a big white wedding have been put on hold for many in 2020, as we’ve seen travel restrictions, social distancing rules and group size limits be implemented across the UK. However, in the wake of this year’s unfortunate events there is a new trend emerging as lockdown has been gradually eased.

During lockdown we have all realised that being with your loved ones and keeping safe is so important. Many have also concluded that why should they put their wedding on hold and have started to look at holding a smaller gathering in line with the government guidelines. When hosting at small, intimate wedding, you can really focus on sharing the joy with those you are closest to and creating memories that will last a lifetime.

Intimate weddings not only save you money that you could use on other aspects of your big day, but they are often less stressful to organise and offer more opportunity to get creative. To help you plan your special day, we have created a list of our favourite small wedding venues in London to give you some inspiration.

AllBright Mayfair

AllBright is the key word for this central Mayfair venue, as each room within the building is filled with natural daylight and accentuated with modern pops of colour. The members club has been designed for and by women (but don’t worry, men are allowed!) and has a Manhattan converted loft feel with two large roof terraces offering stunning views.

The private dining rooms are charming and elegant, and the menus all bursting with freshness and flavour. AllBright Mayfair is the perfect example of how small weddings can still be stylish, as every aspect of the venue has been carefully selected to create a chic and sophisticated event.

The Marylebone Hotel

The Marylebone Hotel is a trendy and modern venue with a choice of indoor and outdoor spaces to say ‘I do’. The interior of the hotel is bright and airy and showcases an array of modern artwork and colourful furnishings. Our favourite space is the stunning Courtyard, an outside terrace featuring a garden wall that offers an intimate open fire and a retractable roof for the unpredictable British weather.

We are sure you will agree that one of the most important parts to your big day is the catering. The Marylebone offers food menus filled with indulgent, high-quality ingredients and creative twists, while the extensive wine list offers choices from all corners of the globe.
