When it comes to choosing a wedding venue, there are many things to consider. Firstly, you need to decide on the style of wedding you’d like to have as your wedding venue will need to complement your chosen theme.
Next, you need to think about the practicalities of the venue: does it have enough space for your guest list and does it have accommodation for guests travelling from afar? If the latter is an absolute must, you might want to consider wedding venues with accommodation, like a hotel.
Hotel wedding venues take the stress out of arranging evening transport and make things super easy for guests travelling to your wedding. They’re not just convenient though; hotel venues are also glamorous, stylish and seriously impressive – and nowhere does amazing hotels quite like London.
