If you dream of holding your wedding reception out in the open air then fear not, these venues offer you the chance to do just that, without sacrificing any of the beauty you would want for such an occasion.
If you want an outdoor venue that benefits from all the convenience of a City of London location but without the constant feeling of hectic buzz, then Coq d’Argent could be just the place for you. Found on the top floor of N1 Poultry, high above the noise of the streets below, there are two terraces, two central terraces and a rooftop garden on offer, adding up to a generous maximum capacity of 300. This hidden gem is particularly enchanting during the summer, when the trees and flowers really come to life and transform the space into a little oasis in the heart of London.
Located in the very heart of Marylebone, Central London, 41 Portland Place combines both period and modern styling to make for a truly unique and beautiful setting. Many of the indoor spaces come as a blank canvas of sorts, allowing you to create your own style by kitting it out to suit your own specifications – it is you big day after all. The pretty gardens are picturesque and sure to delight your guests, while its close proximity to no less than 4 tube stations (including Great Portland Street and Regents Park) is sure to be useful for those travelling from throughout the city.
No.4 Hamilton Place has a wedding licence, meaning you could hold both the ceremony itself and the reception here, perfect for those who want as little fuss throughout their big day as possible. The Edwardian style interior is suitably stunning and will make anyone feel special, while the lovely roof terrace allows you to get out and enjoy that al fresco celebration you crave. Being found in the highly popular area of Mayfair, it is very much a desirable venue and one that benefits from good links to the rest of London, with 2 tube stations both less than 10 minutes away.
Situated in the midst of Wick Woodland, Hackney Marshes is a wonderful choice for those who truly want to feel they’ve left the bustle of the city behind them for the day. From either the main bar or the terraced area you can soak up the excellent views out across the vast 340 acres of surrounding land. It is ideal for summer weddings, with ample outdoor space to enjoy any sun but plenty of indoor space also on offer should the weather not hold out, creating the perfect balance. Despite feeling isolated from the buzz of London, Hackney Wick Rail can be reached in less than 20 minutes.
