From charming to opulent: Best hotel wedding venues in London

Planning a wedding involves all sorts of considerations. There are major factors to decide on, things like who to invite, the number of guests and when to host it (summer and winter weddings are very different affairs), as well as the finer details, such as the cake, decorations, food, drink and music. But one of the most important things to consider when wedding planning is where you want to celebrate your big day – yes, we’re talking about the venue.

To take some of the stress out of your search, we highly recommend considering a hotel as the location of your wedding venue. They offer numerous benefits, the most obvious of which being that they have on-site accommodation (it kind of comes with the territory) so you don’t need to think about the getting home bit at the end of the celebrations. Plus, many possess a wedding license should you want to hold both the ceremony and the reception under one roof, and they’re well suited to both large and smaller weddings with a plethora of room options available for hire.


Separate to the practicalities of the occasion, hotels often provide a grand and glamourous location in which to spend your special day. We hate to make it all about looks but, sometimes, what’s on the outside really does matter.

With that in mind, we’ve scoured the city to seek out the most exquisite hotel wedding venues in London. Everything from one-of-a-kind boutique hotels to extravagant chains that are well versed in throwing pitch perfect weddings. Some offer charm and character, while others offer spa facilities and state of the art sound systems (priorities, right?). Choose from tiered wedding packages that meet your criteria and price point, or personalise an existing offering to ensure your day is everything you dreamed. These are the best hotel wedding venues in London that really should make your shortlist.
