Top 10 Alternative + Unique Wedding Venues in London

There are loads of cool and groovy places to choose from and we decided on what we hope are ten very different and unique wedding venues in London. Here we go, in no particular order…


1. The Asylum

Decrepit yet amazing. This is in our top 3 of venues we want to shoot a wedding in. EDIT WE SHOT THERE! It looked like this.

2. The Natural History Museum

Holy bum. This place is amazing. You already know that right? Click the link to see more if you’re not sure what I am so excited about. DINOSAURS.

3. The Saatchi Gallery

We love us some good art. This is probably one of the trendiest venues in the UK and would make for a super stylish wedding venue.

4. London Zoo

Yeah. They had us at ‘why not have a canape in Tiger Territory?’ Sold.

5. Kew Gardens

You’ve always dreamed of getting wed in a massive garden, then this is the place for you. Loads of different size rooms to choose from and all set in lush gardens!

6. MC Motors

Another run down awesome looking place but this time with all manner of rooms and lights and decor. This place has to be seen so have a look and see if this is the one for you.

7. Barbican

Want to get wed in the tropics but can’t? This place will fill the gap nicely. It’s pretty damn unique, click the link to let them tell you why.

8. Shakespeare’s Globe 

A venue perfect for theatre buffs this place is beautiful.

9. Museum of Brands

If me and Rich had to do it all again, this would be the place I would love to hold our party. Not sure that he would agree but it is retro kitsch perfection!

10. The Horniman Museum

This place is gorgeous and is a perfect combo of museum and gardens for those who can’t decide what type of venue to go for. Beautiful architecture and landscaped gardens make for wonderful photographs!
