If you want your wedding reception to stand out from the masses, one of the best ways to do it is by setting the scene with a unique location; one that becomes a star of the show in its own right, with all of the following being prime examples of such spaces.
Black Swan Yard is a warehouse venue situated on the fashionable Bermondsey Street, just a 10 minute walk from London Bridge, and close to Tower Hill and Borough. This well connected venue is a great choice if you want the creative freedom to put your own stamp on the reception as, though it has an industrial chic vibe due to it being a warehouse, it is finished in a simple white and contemporary style, allowing you to bring your own flair and tailor the space to suit your own needs and desires – it is your big day after all. With a capacity of 400, there’s also no need to worry about fitting everyone in.
IRIS Studios is a state-of-the-art Eco complex that is comprised of 2 highly modern photographic studio spaces that were designed with the intention of revolutionising the commercial studio industry. This bold claim is backed-up by its striking design and flexible use, not to mention the top quality service which you can expect to receive courtesy of the experienced and dedicated in-house team. There are plenty of options when it comes to transport links in the surrounding area, including Earls Court, Fulham Broadway and West Brompton, which can all be reached in around 10 minutes or so.
Islington Metalworks certainly had unique beginnings, as the building was once used as the stables which housed the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport. Now a multi-purpose event space, it plays host to everything from club nights and concerts to film shoots and fashion shows, not to mention weddings of course. Fully licenced and coming complete with an onsite kitchen and catering team, you needn’t worry about making sure your guests remain refreshed throughout the evening, whilst being nestled right behind Angel station means it’s also a breeze to reach using the local underground service.
To call Beach Blanket Babylon a bar and restaurant is to do it an injustice as in reality, it is so much more than that. This unique and sumptuously appointed venue has all the decadence and exclusive feel of a private members club without the need for a membership. Attracting the discerning London partygoer and the well-heeled socialite, you can book here knowing full well you can expect the best quality service. With a good maximum capacity of 350 and a location just 7 minutes from Notting Hill Gate tube station, it is an equally practical choice as much as it is a stylistically appealing one.
