Popular options for wedding reception venues:

  • gardens – pretty outdoor spaces make picture-perfect backdrops

  • hotels – elegant ballrooms, grand banquet halls and stylish bistros are fantastic, especially because many hotels offer wedding packages that include free honeymoon stays

  • alternative venues – unique spaces like museums, warehouses and tipis give your big day a tonne of personality

  • charming country-style venues – rustic barns and stately homes are both popular choices

  • luxury wedding venues – impressive or lavish spaces give wedding receptions a real sense of occasion

  • restaurants and pubs – fine dining restaurants, intimate private dining rooms and traditional English pubs are all great options

  • dry hire venues – these are perfect for budget weddings (think village halls, function rooms and outdoor venues)

  • tents and marquees – these blank canvases can be styled however you want

  • boats – what could be better than a stylish celebration on the Thames?


Your wedding party venue sets the stage for your entire celebration, so it’s important to choose carefully. The perfect space should comfortably accommodate your guest list, fall within your budget and reflect who you are as a couple. So what do you need to know before you start your search?


Things to consider when looking for a wedding reception venue:

  • your budget – are you searching for a cheap wedding reception venue, something mid-range or are you looking to splash out?

  • the style of venue you’d like (modern, traditional, vintage, funky, etc.)

  • the time of year your wedding reception will be held – do you need a cosy venue for a winter wedding, an outdoor wedding venue for a large Asian wedding, etc.?

  • what part of the city you’d like your venue to be located (Blackheath, Battersea, Chelsea, Camden, near St Paul’s Cathedral, etc.)

  • whether the space has adequate on-site parking and/or public transport connections

  • whether the space is large enough to accommodate the number of people on your guest list

  • whether the lighting is satisfactory – good lighting makes for better photos

  • whether the space has good acoustics, a sound system and plenty of power outlets

  • what seating layout would work best (banquet, family style, U-shape, etc.)

  • your catering options – do you have to use the venue’s in-house catering team and what kind of food and drink are you looking to serve (sit-down meal, buffet, just hors-d'oeuvres, etc.)?

It’s always a good idea to arrange a viewing at a handful of wedding reception venues, as this will give you a true feel for the setting. Before you set your heart on a space, there are a few key details you should consider.

What to ask when viewing a wedding party venue:

  • who will be your go-to person at the venue on the day of your wedding reception

  • if you’ll have exclusive use of the venue (and if not, how many other weddings are booked for that day)

  • who will be responsible for the decorations

  • how long you’ll have to set up and pack up

  • whether there are noise or photography restrictions

  • how the venue prices alcohol (minimum spend, per head, open bar, etc.)

  • what the hire fee includes – check what furniture and equipment you can use, as well as who’ll supply the linen, cutlery and service staff

  • whether there are any additional costs (corkage fee, cake-cutting fee, late licence fee, cleaning fee, etc.) and whether VAT is included


Planning a wedding reception to remember is no mean feat, so take the time to envision the type of celebration you want. After all, a wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event and it’s those little details that will make all the difference on the day.

We really enjoyed our wedding reception at the heights bar. Everything was perfectly organised and the food was very tasty (we went for the finger bufffet) with lots of drink options including cocktails. Thank you so much for organising a lovely reception for us.

Lorenza Frigerio
Booked Gallery Cottage at Dulwich Picture Gallery
Charming little venue with a lovely private garden which proved ideal for my wedding reception. The manager, David was super nice and helpful from the day I first visited, all the way through to the event itself. Great that the venue provided chairs and some tables, as well as offering hiring of garden games. All guests loved the day and were impressed by location. Really good memories of this experience - would def recommend using the space!
