SNAP is a designated corporate event space and wedding venue, meaning it comes with a tangible sense of efficiency and a high-quality, professional vibe.

Featuring five unique and different event venues, Gilgamesh London is the perfect place for a private wedding ceremony and reception. The facility is licensed to perform weddings, meaning you can do everything here, and they will work from as few as 20 guests. There are on-site event coordinators and planners to help make sure your event goes smoothly, and the underground has room for up to 100 cars. If you’re interested in a unique and affordable location that’s also intimate, this space is versatile enough to host even the most extreme themes.

If your theme is New York in London, then the loft style feel of 4th Floor Studios will suit perfectly. It’s floored throughout in hardwood, and has large brick walls finished in white. The bamboo rooftop BBQ area will give you space for early guests to mingle, and the two kitchens will make sure no one goes hungry later. For your wedding, the bright white of the place lends itself to any color of decorations or flowers, and will let you be more creative with your theme than you might otherwise be able to. Those who stay late will appreciate the full service barista coffee as well, particularly if there was an early wedding ceremony the night before.
There’s no shortage of old factories and warehouse locations in London, but Dalston Heights takes the restoration of those areas to new heights. The venue crowns an old cardboard box factory, perched on the 5th floor. It’s covered by a pitched roof, and is flooded with natural light from skylights running the length of the roof. It’s got a uniquely urban feel, while still being charming and intimate enough to host small or large wedding events. Offering plenty of eclectic furnishings and props that can be moved as needed, guests and event coordinators will love it. The kitchen facilities are available for catering too, letting you save a bit.
A courtyard entrance, intimate space for 50 to 250 guests, an open kitchen, full bar, and an outstanding audio visual set up are just some of the great things about the Tanner & Co venue. Featuring floor to ceiling columns, adjustable lighting, and ample furnishings throughout, there is little you or your guests will want for, and none of it that can’t be arranged. One of the best locations in town for a reception, this is a comfortable and inviting space that’s sure to please. Just steps from London’s Borough Market, last minute additions or adjustments to your wedding event will be easily made.
This is one of the more interesting places you could host your wedding reception, and not only because it’s the Pickle Factory. It’s a cozy and small venue, with an industrial and unfinished feel. The steel beams that support the roof are a great place to hang lights and decorations, while the lack of any real distinct features will let you bring even the most creative of ideas to life. Your guests will love the unique modern and unfinished feel of the space, and you’ll love the fact that quite literally anything goes here. Your imagination is the only limitation. If you love decorating, you’ll love all that you can do in this gem of a find.
