As one of London’s most iconic landmarks, it isn’t surprising that Tower Bridge also makes for a truly spectacular wedding venue.

Couples can wed in the intimate North Tower Lounge before holding a reception on the two famous walkways, where guests can drink champagne and enjoy majestic views of the London skyline as they watch the sunset over the River Thames.

Wedding guests keen to experience a dynamic part of English history can also enjoy a reception in the 19th century industrial space of the Victorian Engine Rooms, which house the giant engines once used to raise the bridge.

Keats House

Keats Grove, Hampstead

Why it’s spectacular

Keats House, the site of one of the most famous literary love affairs, is now available to hire for couples who long for a truly poetic wedding ceremony in London.

This beautiful Regency home and gardens – now a museum dedicated to the memory of its former owner, the poet John Keats and his lover Fanny Brawne – is ideal for small, intimate wedding ceremonies and receptions.

This charming venue is ideal for couples who can’t resist the spectacle of marrying in the house of one of the most famous romantics that ever lived.  After exchanging vows couples can walk in the beautiful gardens, beneath the plum trees where Keats composed ‘Ode to a Nightingale’, to the music of a string quartet.

Why it’s spectacular

This perfectly preserved 19th century building is surely one of London’s most beautiful and lavish locations for a summer wedding.

Following extensive restorations, couples now have the chance to get married in the Temperate House, an exquisite Victorian glasshouse in the heart of the gardens. Not many have the opportunity to wed surrounded by up to 300 guests and over 10,000 rare plants.

For the ultimate spectacle, couples can take to the skies and experience Kew by helicopter. Marvel at the breathtaking aerial views of the gardens, then relax and sip champagne during a limousine transfer to Kew.

The Queen’s House

Where?

Greenwich Park, Greenwich

Why it’s spectacular

This ‘House of Delight’ was commissioned in the 17th century as a gift from King James I to Queen Anne of Denmark. Centuries later it is still living up to the name.

Set amidst the greenery of one of the oldest royal parks in London, The Queen’s House retains many of its stunning period features, including a black and white marble floor and ceilings embellished with gold leaf.

Couples can exchange vows in the regal Great Hall, with views across the Thames, or in the charming Orangery and South Parlours, then retire to the vaulted Undercroft beneath the hall to dance the night away.

For added spectacle, guests can travel to the venue by river to Greenwich from Westminster, Embankment or Tower Hill.
