Wedding Venues Hire Guide

Getting hitched in lively East London? This cultural melting pot is known for blending the innovative with the traditional, so you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to your big day. Whether you’re looking for a rooftop space in Canary Wharf, an alternative wedding venue in the Brick Lane area or a cockney boozer for a right royal knees-up, we can recommend something that suits.

Things to keep in mind when searching for an east London wedding venue:

  • What size venue you’ll need (a space for less than 50 guests, 75 guests, 100 guests, etc.)

  • Which area would be most convenient (Dalston, Liverpool Street, Olympic Park, etc.)

  • Whether you need a venue with good public transport connections or on-site parking

  • What style of venue would best suit (do you need an affordable function room for a large Asian wedding in Hackney, a unique space for an offbeat wedding in Shoreditch or a stylish venue for a traditional wedding reception in Stratford?)

  • Whether you need to hire a space with a civil ceremony licence

  • Whether you need a rain plan (this is essential if you’re hiring an outdoor wedding venue)

  • Whether there are any good photo ops in the area (think shots of your wedding party against a backdrop of colourful Shoreditch street art, pictures taken at the Olympic grounds in Stratford or street-style wedding portraits at the Broadway Market in Hackney)

Booked Eyrie Room (Function Room) at The Birds
Booked for my wedding and the team at the Birds were AMAZING! Communication, arrangements and pre meetings were all easy and they were really flexible at any requests or ideas we had. Food was fab and there was loads to go around throughout the canapés, main meal which was a yummy roast sharing style and delicious mini deserts, and buffet of classic pub food minis. Drinks were flowing and they really looked after you before and during the day. Kept an eye on all guests and even re distributed the sharing food during the dinner depending what tables had tucked into what, and during the evening would keep watch of mine and my husbands drinks and produce a new drink into our hand from even across the room. All the bar staff were on top form and there was never a queue at the bar. We were able to decorate however we liked and they took tables and benches from their other pubs in order to give the look we wanted. Our family and friends have also not stopped telling us how amazing the staff and food was. Really an amazing team with Roxy and Rich! Couldn't recommend more!
