Every wedding is unique, but one factor which often informs the rest of the planning is the size of your big day. For some, an intimate ceremony for close family and friends is ideal, but if you’re looking to stretch the guestlist, then only a large wedding will do! Here at The Brewery, we often host weddings for large numbers and as such, have collated a list of essentials for brides looking for a more lavish affair.
Size and Location
This goes without saying, but if you’re opting for a large scale wedding, then your venue will need to be, well, large! At The Brewery for example, we can both accommodate and cater for up to 1,000 guest, so there’s no worries about leaving out the important ones in your life!
As well as a large venue, you’ll need a way for all your guests to get there. Often at large weddings there will be a number of family and friends from all around the globe, so good transport links are crucial. Our central London location allows for all your global loved ones to attend with easy access to local and international transport. London City Airport is a stone’s throw away and Heathrow is easily accessible by the major nearby tube stations.
We are also fortunate to have our friends and partners at The Montcalm London City who provide luxurious accommodation just a few feet from The Brewery, allowing you and your guests to celebrate into the small hours of the night without worrying about getting home.
A large venue offers the perfect opportunity to get creative and make the space your own. As such, its important that your venue of choice has a strong AV and tech offering. We’ve invested in a state-of-the-art surround sound system, ultra hi-speed WIFI and a fully integrated LED lighting system. This technology infrastructure, one of the most advanced in the capital, allows couples to fully tailor their wedding look at the touch of a button.
London has one of the most vibrant and exciting food scenes in the world and as a crucial part of any big day, food should take a central position at your wedding. Our catering, under the leadership of Food Director Tom Gore, exemplifies the best of British with an international twist. The kitchen team needs to be able to provide mouth-watering, restaurant quality dishes, while not allowing the number of guests to compromise on quality.
It can be a daunting thought planning a large scale wedding, but if you keep the essentials in mind and lean on your venue, it can be one of the most fantastic ways to celebrate with all your loved one.
