Everybody wants their big day to be unique and different to everyone else’s. Organising a wedding can be very stressful, especially if you’re trying to think outside of the box. The UK’s capital is a great place to tie the knot, especially if you’re staying at the Grand Park London Paddington. The location means that you’ll be close to a range of different quirky and unusual venues which could provide the perfect setting to give you a truly unique wedding experience.

Wedding Venues

MC Motors

This venue is perfect for any hipsters out there that are looking to create a contemporary style wedding. The warehouse is used as a photo studio during the day but can be hired out for events. The interior of the building has an industrial feel to it, with exposed brickwork and wooden beams. This rustic style could be combined with some contemporary furniture for a luxurious mixture of old and new.

The Barbican Centre

If you have ever wanted to say ‘I do’ in a tropical environment, but don’t like the idea of flying to the Amazon, then this spot is perfect for you. The Barbican is a private rainforest getaway hidden in the middle of London. After the ceremony you and your guests can venture through the trees into the reception room where you can enjoy beautiful views of the city.

London Zoo

Animal lovers will be excited to find out that they can now get hitched at London Zoo. You can say your vows surrounded by your favourite critters and then have your pictures taken with penguins or even tigers.

The Globe

The Globe

You can now get married at London’s most famous theatre. The place that staged some of the greatest theatrical works in history is full of beauty and culture. If you’re a fan of Shakespeare’s work, or if you want to soak up some history on your big day, then the Globe theatre is the perfect place.

Searcy’s at The Gherkin

Feel on top of the world as you recite your vows at this unique wedding venue. The Gherkin is one of London’s most iconic buildings, and gives newlyweds the chance to experience a beautiful panoramic view of the city.

The Old Royal Naval College

Located in Greenwich, this naval college is full of history and culture. The huge hall is covered in intricate murals and classical art. The beauty of the building is perfect for those who want an interesting twist on a traditional wedding.

Asylum Chapel

Despite how the name sounds, this historic building was not a place for the mentally ill. The partially destroyed site was a retirement home, which has been turned into a venue for hire. The classic brickwork design provides a beautifully gothic scene for a wedding.
