Winter Wedding Venues Hire Guide

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.

When’s the best time to host a winter wedding in London?

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.

Where in London can I find winter wedding venues?

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.

Encomo Leslie
Booked Orangery & Courtyard at No.11 Cavendish Square
This venue came with their own catering staff. They were so professional on the day. Also before with tasting day that was setup with management. The management team and staff was so helpful right throughout the process with organising the registra for the ceremony. My wife and I was greatfull for their help. Before my wife and I found this beautiful venue we had a look at other venue in the area. We found others that we liked but the price just for the venue alone (not including catering and music) was way out of our budget. so when we stumble upon this venue, to be honest I thought it was too good to be true, mainly because of location also considering what other venues in the same area was charging. A lot of my friends who attended our wedding have been in contact with this venue for their wedding. I highly recommend this venue for anyone looking for a venue that's less than 4k and able to host 90ppl max for ceremony and 120 seated for reception.
Nate Parker
Booked Function Suite at The Dickens Inn
We got married on December 17th and had the perfectly magical day. From our initial contact with Agata in March 2022 through months of preparation with Agata and Eleonora, to the day with Bogdan, Jack and team, everything was amazing. The venue was stunning, all the staff attentive and professional, and the food delicious. We couldn’t have asked for more especially as we had a winter wedding so the venue decor was just perfect with fairy lights and Christmas decorations. We even had snow on the ground which made for awesome wedding photos.
Aimee Alderson
Booked Large Meeting Rooms at Grand Connaught Rooms
We had our wedding reception in the Drawing Room & Edinburgh Suite at Grand Connaught Rooms. It was absolutely amazing and our guests said it was one of the best weddings they'd been to. Everyone loved the food, especially the beef. The staff were world class, thank you Abdul for looking after us all night. Thanks to Francesca and Amber for all the planning and support. It was perfect and the best decision we made to have our reception at this gorgeous venue.
Caroline Roussel
Booked Backroom at The Cavendish Arms
Absolutely amazing, we had our wedding there and it was the best night ever. Our guests loved the place and the ballroom is perfect as a dance floor. Shirley has been absolutely wonderful while dealing with the logistic beforehand and on the day the Dans and the team were so helpful and professional, everything ran so smoothly it was exactly what we expected our wedding party to be like. We could not recommend that place enough. 5 stars! Thanks so much guys ❤️
Sarah Paderes
Booked The Asylum Room at Home House
This was the first venue that we saw during our wedding venue hunting. Elegant Georgian terrace house with a stunning staircase for those gorgeous wedding photos. As our wedding was done a few days before Christmas, the venue decorations were festive which added to that special romantic feel. The staff especially Nicola Lyons, the events coordinator was very good. She was very approachable, organized and she really accommodated all of our requirements especially food related ones and last minute requests. I think it was value for money given the gorgeous venue, the wonderful staff and the quality of service that we got during our event. The service staff for the day led by Hassan was also excellent. They were all very professional, polite and accommodating. We also got reduced prices for the bachelor and bachelorette rooms which were full of character and we were able to use Portman Square (a locked garden square in front of the venue). Portman Square was also a perfect setting for our wedding sparklers group photos. We booked the Asylum Room which is the old library of the house. Our guests loved how elegant it looked and it was perfect for our small group requirement. The warren of rooms and corridors also added a quirky feel. It was a magical day that we will never forget. Overall, Home House is a great London wedding venue and I couldn’t recommend it more.
Husnara Khanom
Booked Whole venue at Islington Upper Street
Fantastic venue, really beautiful, spacious, great facilities, sound system, lighting, clean and the service was really brilliant. There were a couple of broken tables when we went to view and this was replaced instantly as soon as we mentioned it. The location is great, really close to two tube stations and easy to find parking close by in the evening. Really helpful instructions - could not have asked for a better place to hold our event.
