Top 5 Reasons to Get Married in London


These days you can get married anywhere in the world. If you want to say your nuptials on top of a mountain or on the beach, you can. A traditional country wedding is possible, as is getting hitched at one of the swankiest hotels in a capital city. London is a hot spot for weddings right now and there are a lot of reasons why celebrities and non-celebrities alike are choosing to say, ‘I do’ in our capital. Here are the top five reasons to get married in London.

Your Guests Can All Stay

With the number of hotels there are situated in the capital, your guests will all be able to find somewhere to stay no matter how many people you invite. London hotels cater for all budgets from cheap backpacker style hostels to hotels such as Claridge’s, which are fit for a queen.

Wedding Venues

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing a venue for your wedding. Whether you are looking for a beautiful old church, a cathedral, a world-renowned hotel, or even a football stadium, there is a venue somewhere in London to suit the taste of every bride. The difficulty might be found in narrowing down your options.

Choice of Suppliers

With London being such a vibrant, cosmopolitan city, you will find an abundance of suppliers waiting to fulfil your every need. Whether you are looking for a unique photographer, a particular style of cake, or vintage wedding car hire, London is the place to find them. You may not find the task of getting the right supplier to the venue on time if you choose a remote country wedding, so bear that in mind.


Everyone wants pictures to remind them of their big day in years to come and most people hire professional photographers for the job. You will probably want some family photos taken outside the venue or some shots of you cutting the cake, but the current trend also includes romantic pictures of the Bride and Groom, and London is a great place to find the perfect spot. The Thames is a romantic place for some photos and there is no end of romantic buildings such as Westminster Abbey or Regent’s Park. The London Eye looks fantastic at night as it is lit up in red. Many happy couples find this ideal for a night-time shot.


While you may not think about hitting the shops on your big day, your guests will want to buy you presents and there is no better place to do this than London. Register for your wedding gifts in some of the big stores such as Selfridges or Fortnum and Masons and your guests can pop in the day before to pick them up. This means that they will not need to travel to the capital with your present and this will make choosing the perfect wedding gift for you easier.

These are just five of the reasons why you should consider getting married in London but there are many more. Why not follow in the footsteps of kings, queens, celebrities, and millions of others and celebrate the most important day of your life in our capital?
