Though the ceremony is perhaps the most important part of a wedding, it’s the reception that people often most look forward to as it’s when everyone can let their hair down and start the celebrations properly. As such, here are some of the very best London has to offer in the way of reception venues.
Copa de Cava is excellently situated, just minutes from the iconic St Paul’s Cathedral and right next to Blackfriars’s tube station. Another fairly new venue, they opened in May 2013 as the UK’s very first dedicated cava bar. With a late licence and space for a DJ or live music performers, this venue is ideal for a party to mark your big day in style. As for the building itself, it can hold up to 200 guests per reception while the exposed brick work is a tasteful nod to an authentic Catalan bodega. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, which is perfect for a gathering of friends and family looking to celebrate.
For a slightly more intimate yet luxurious feel, The Balcony Room can be found next to the renowned Globe Theatre right on the banks of the River Thames. As the name would suggest, the real highlight of this venue is the balcony itself, reached via floor to ceiling French doors, meaning that whether utilising the indoor or outdoor space you are sure to have plenty of natural light. The views out over the waterfront and city beyond are unrivaled, with a particularly great perspective of St Paul’s. Being in the heart of London, it is very well connected with London Bridge train station and several other transport links nearby.
ME London is a purpose built event space with seven different multi-function rooms to choose from in all. They are each complete with all the mod cons you would expect, while the trained service team will be on hand throughout to make sure things run as smoothly as possible so you can simply enjoy the celebrations without any need for stress on your big day. Highly adaptable for guest lists anywhere from 8 to 300 in size, this modern venue is a wonderful choice no matter the atmosphere you crave, and with four tube stations all ten minutes or less away, you needn’t worry about getting there either.
