Affordable Wedding Venues Hire Guide

Inexpensive doesn’t have to mean tacky. We focus on finding best priced wedding venues that represent the best value for money. Usually, venue hire is a major part of a wedding budget, so if you get a great deal, you’ll be able to reign in your spending. The key is to think outside the box, and Tagvenue is here to give you a helping hand with that.

Top tips and tricks for hiring a budget-friendly wedding venue in London:

  • look off the beaten path – some areas in London are in greater demand than others when it comes to wedding reception venues. Try searching for a cheap and cheerful minimum spend or dry hire wedding venue in one of London’s less popular areas. What’s more, choosing a wedding venue in a less busy location will be easier to get to on the day.

  • look for a place with a BYO policy – you can make huge savings on beverages alone by hiring a BYO wedding venue. Most low-cost wedding venues allow you to bring your own alcohol. However, make sure to check if they charge a corkage fee so you can factor it into your budget.

  • hire the venue off-season – wedding venue hire rates are much lower during the winter months. If you’re still not convinced, see our winter wedding venues for inspiration. And another good tip? Weddings on Saturdays are less affordable than on other days of the week, when the prices can be up to 50% lower.

  • hire a small wedding venue – cheap wedding venue hire is definitely achievable if you’re hosting an intimate wedding for close family and friends. Think charming chapels, pretty gardens and cosy private dining rooms.

Looking for more wedding reception ideas on a budget?The most important trick of all is to search for affordable venues that are not usually associated with weddings. We’ve created a round-up of some of them:

  • photo studios – a lot of them are light and spacious dry hire venues. Doesn’t it sound like a beautiful and unique place to tie the knot? To top it all off, you can decorate it yourself. Think of all the possibilities!

  • warehouses – one of our favourite low cost wedding reception venues in London. They’re affordable to hire and they have lots of industrial chic, which is perfect for a modern city wedding. For your big night, you can easily turn them into a fairy tale, as they’re perfect for decorating with romantic twinkling lights.

  • art galleries – ideal for creatives! A lot of art galleries are located in hip areas, like Camden Town or Shoreditch. This proves that budget wedding venues in central London actually exist – you just need to know where to look for them. At #tagvenue we’re experts when it comes to cheap wedding venues in London and we’re more than happy to help you.

Guests Reviews of Affordable Wedding Venues on Tagvenue

Sara DePerro
Booked Balcony Room at Swan, Shakespeare's Globe
Loved the setting, the wonderful staff who paid attention to our every need, and the food was amazing. I highly recommend this venue if you are looking for an amazing location and service that can't be beat for a very reasonable price. I couldn't recommend the Swan more highly.
Ayesha Khine
Booked The Lounge at The Floating Showroom
Elizabeth and Teo were really easy to contact throughout the whole process and very accommodating to our needs. The boat was decorated beautifully for our wedding. We had an amazing time, all our guests loved it and we couldn’t be happier with our choice of venue!
Gemma White
Booked Water’s Edge Room at London Wetland Centre
The venue was stunning and completely captured the beauty of flora, fauna and wildlife that the UK has to offer. It required very little additional decoration to rooms for the ceremony or reception. We opted for the BBQ catering for our wedding and all our guests were very complimentary about the food. If you need to plan a wedding on a budget this hidden gem in London is the place to consider.
Miriam Worku
Booked The Studio at Andaz London Hotel
A truly five star experience! Our guests and vendors couldn't stop talking how polite and helpful the staff were. The room was beautifully decorated, I only added flowers for the tables. The food was amazing, all nine dishes. One of the cake was smashed on route and the staff got the cake company to send a new one. Also, the cake boards were bigger than the cake stands and they got their pastry chef to carefully place the cakes on our cake stands. Even when I was not happy with some of the planning aspect the manager was very quick to deal with it. We had a great night!!!
Uzma Mir
Booked Dreamy Wedding at {10-11} Carlton House Terrace
The staff have been so supportive and helpful throughout planning stages. The day went very smoothly and guests were so impressed with the look of the venue!! The catering was delicious, and got many compliments from guests.
Nick Stamp
Booked Big Space at Hackney Showroom
We brought in our own caterers and furniture suppliers and HS were very accommodating in working with them - less stress for us! The space has the perfect mix of bar area, big space and studio, meaning all our guests - young and old - could find a place that was comfortable for them. The late licence also meant that we were able to keep the party going when many venues would find this problematic
