We love London winter wedding venues – here’s why:
They’re a great deal – Wedding venues can be hired at significantly lower rates in winter (up to 50% off!). If you decide to get married in the low season, the range of venues you’re able to choose from is likely to increase a lot.
They’re unique – From charming country houses that can be turned into festive fairylands to cosy pubs for smaller weddings, all winter wedding venues we’re listing have a really special vibe. See for yourself!
They allow you to get creative – The vast majority of our winter wedding venues in London make great canvases for designing a beautiful reception. Whether you’re after a Christmas theme or loads of glitter, we’re sure to help you book a space that suits your vision.
Planning tips and tricks for a winter wedding:
First things first: keep it warm – Double check if the venue’s heating is working properly and make sure your winter wedding venue will have had time to warm up before your ceremony or reception. Also, why don’t you serve a delicious hot drink on arrival, like spiced up mulled wine?
Stay stylish and don’t freeze – Dress yourselves and your bridesmaids in style but make sure they won’t get cold. In terms of the venue, keep in mind that you will need some space for the guests to leave their outerwear.
Don’t forget the days are getting short – Think about tying the knot earlier in the day to ensure you have enough time after the ceremony for outdoor group photos. Your photographer will thank you!
Keep the winter spirit alive – Sparkles, fairy lights, wooden decor elements, festive red and green, white winter wonderland… you name it. Last but not least, say thank you to your guests with winter or Christmas-themed favours.
To hire a winter wedding venue, expect to pay anywhere from £90 to £150+ per person. Some venues charge on the basis of a minimum spend, and prices for these venues in London will start from £1500+. It is also possible to find a wedding venue that hires per hour, expect these prices to fall between £150 to £600+ per hour. (All data from Tagvenue.com.)
The winter season falls anywhere between December to February. However, we don’t recommend having a wedding during the Christmas season. That’s when venues raise their rates, and because of multiple corporate holiday parties, you may have much less options to choose from if you wait until the last minute with the booking. If you’re flexible with the date of your winter wedding, we suggest considering dates between mid-January to late February. That’s when many venues have a low season, which means you’ll have higher chances of booking excellent venues for much lower cost as venues usually lower their rates during the off-peak season.
Many fabulous venues can be found in the central areas of London. Check Soho and Covent Garden if you’re looking for a contemporary space that is less formal. If you’re thinking of having a fairytale wedding, swing by Mayfair and Knightsbridge, these areas are well known for a wide selection of beautiful venues with a luxurious feel.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
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.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
