Why London is the PERFECT Wedding Destination

Why London is the PERFECT Wedding Destination

When we think of destination weddings, it’s easy for the mind to conjure up thoughts of sandy beaches and palm trees, but why not something a little closer to home? London is an ideal location to tie the knot, offering both modern and urban charm, whilst also being traditional and historic.  

London is a petri dish of historic allure and allows visitors to live and breathe the progression of time and development from its Roman roots into the modern day. As a hub of culture, London offers an infinite amount of options and opportunities to suit every different couple; here are some of our favourites.

Following the Royal Wedding, brides and grooms-to-be in London warned hidden risk could cost them thousands

As the Royal Wedding celebrations settle into fond memories, London brides and grooms-to-be are warned to be wary of massive financial loss if they neglect to protect their upcoming nuptials.    

Specialist insurance expert Johnathan Lloyd, from Lycetts, has advised that any couple making like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and tying the knot should be aware of hidden risks. If not, new couples could face thousands of pounds of loss. 

Though it may pain prospective couples to consider it, there is a risk of things going wrong in the run-up to their big day. Additional insurance can help cover for issues such as stolen wedding gifts, or missing rings, says the specialist.

A unique wedding venue in the heart of London

Wedding Venue

In July 2017 the National Gallery welcomed its first bride and groom for an intimate wedding breakfast. Celebrating with a joyful gathering of family and friends, the couple held a very special wedding ‘breakfast’ (this time it was actually breakfast, being hosted before public opening) in the stunning surroundings of the Gallery’s glass-domed Barry Rooms. The pair chose the National Gallery as their wedding venue for their personal love of art and for the opportunity to have the paintings and beautiful spaces all to themselves as part of their wedding celebrations.
