Kew Gardens, West London
Kew Gardens is a World Heritage Site made up from Grade I and Grade II listed buildings, including a former royal residence, a choice of conservatories and an orangery. The venue is seriously stylish without being stuffy, which is why it makes perfect sense that Fearne Cotton chose to marry her rocker husband Jesse Wood here in 2014.
The elegant wedding venue has also hosted singer Katie Melua’s wedding, to superbike racer James Toseland.

One Marylebone, North West London
One Marylebone was the home to one of our favourite celebrity weddings ever – mainly because of the groom’s speech! This North West London venue was chosen by Tom and Giovanna Fletcher for their 2012 wedding. The venue is located on its very own island, and is a Grade I listed deconsecrated church, restored to its original design by Sir John Soane. It’s also just minutes from Regent’s Park which is perfect if you’re looking for a variety of backdrops for your wedding photographs.
We couldn’t not include Tom’s tear-jerker of a wedding speech – it’s been years and we’re still welling up!

Cromlix Hotel, Perthshire
If you owned a wedding venue, you’d probably get married there, right? That’s exactly what tennis ace Andy Murray did! For his long-awaited wedding to artist Kim Sears, the Wimbledon champ chose Cromlix Hotel, a five-star mansion set within 34 acres of woodland and beautiful grounds. His brother, doubles tennis star Jamie Murray, also said his wedding vows in the onsite chapel. It’s definitely a wedding venue to consider if you’re a lover of tennis.
Woburn Abbey Estate, Bedfordshire
Couples looking for a wedding venue with plenty of options will love Woburn Abbey Estate– after all, Frankie and Wayne Bridge did! Woburn offers couples a choice of locations for their special day. They can marry at the exclusive Sculpture Gallery, with private terrace and lake views or The Woburn Hotel for intimate weddings.
