Queen Mary University’s Queens’ Building lawn is made for an alfresco champagne reception, with its Victorian clock tower as a picturesque backdrop. For the colder months there’s the senior common room. The Grade II-listed Octagon Room is the spot for the wedding breakfast.
This King’s Road restaurant’s traditional British fare has proven popular for weddings. A car garage back in the 1920s, this unusual venue now benefits from an extensive courtyard space out front. Exclusive hire gives you room to invite up to 250 guests for breakfasts.
One of four ancient Inns of Court, Inner Temple oozes history from every corner. Georgian in style, its wedding halls date back almost 500 years. But don’t expect fustiness or old-fashioned service amid the antique oak and mahogany furniture: celebrations are overseen by Searcys, who have a firm grip on the latest trends.
The four-domed Edwardian building just off Parliament Square houses 21 flexible spaces, including the interconnecting trio of the Brunel, Smeaton and Council rooms, which each cater for up to 100 guests. At the centre of it all, the grand portland-stone staircase is a popular spot for photos.
Tucked away in a six-acre garden just beyond Moorgate, the Honourable Artillery Company is a hidden gem for weddings. The standout space is the Long Room, with its oak panelling and minstrel gallery. Begin proceedings with a fizz reception on the lawn.
The Grade I-listed Royal Exchange offers imposing architecture and a striking naturally lit indoor courtyard. Its stately entrance is an obvious photo opportunity and makes a strong first impression. On the ground floor, the Grand Café seats 100-300 guests. Exclusive hire can be arranged.
Pairing 18th-century architecture with cutting-edge technology, this City venue’s Porter Tun room is one of the largest pillarless spaces in London, with capacity for 1,000 reception guests or 600 diners. Audio and lighting can be personalised, while the Montcalm London City next door offers sleek and chic accommodation.
