There's a considerable amount of legwork and orchestration that goes into planning an alfresco celebration. While gorgeous scenery and natural landscapes mean you can embrace a less-is-more approach when it comes to decorations, you may need to hire generators, lights, flooring, portable toilets and kitchen equipment.

The most well-known places for marquee wedding venues in London are Hackney and Kingston upon Thames. Both of these districts have a high concentration of greenery and landscaped gardens, which are ideal for creating a romantic backdrop for your wedding. In Hackney, you may find wonderful venues for a wedding reception in areas such as Victoria Park and Kingsland Road. In Kingston upon Thames, you can rent out one of the many marquee wedding venues with stunning views of the river.

I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
