Venues with Hollywood Glamour

Stoke Newington Town Hall Wedding Venue

We love a full on Hollywood Glamour style wedding - glossy, polished and smolderingly sexy! We've picked four perfect venues for this theme. The main picture of of Stoke Newington Town Hall. Hackney isn't normally associated with Hollywood glamour, but honestly, this Art Deco venue is AMAZING. Imagine making your dramatic entrance on that staircase. Equally fabulous is the spiralling staircase at Denton Hall in West Yorkshire. It also has an abundance of crystal chandeliers and it's exquisite 18th century décor makes ideally elegant for such a theme.

Knowsley Hall in Merseyside is one of the most beautiful stately homes in the country. Home to The Earl and Countess of Derby, it is positively oozing with glamour, and can be exclusively yours for your special day.

Perfect Venues for a War and Peace Inspired Wedding

The ultimate in opulent Romance

War and Peace Wedding Theme

We are all so loving the new BBC adaptation of Tolstoy's War and Peace. Each episode is breathtakingly beautiful; the costumes esquisite, the locations stunning. Our only fault is that it is always over too soon. So why not prolong this gloriousness and create your own wedding based on the Napoleonic Russian aristocracy?

Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is a masterpiece of 18th Century architecture set in more than 2000 acres of 'Capabilty' Brown parkland. Imagine arriving like Natasha in a carriage wrapped in furs (fake is fine)....

Or if you crave a more outdoor type of affair and imagine yourself being driven through the 'Russian' countryside, you could opt for a more rustic approach...

Themed Weddings

We are so excited to have this unique venue on our site. The Ivory Vaults is an exclusive location situated within the historic vaulted cellars of the Grade II listed Ivory House at St Katharine Docks.

Nestled between the Tower of London and Tower Bridge, the 10,000 sq ft venue is available for wedding receptions for 100 – 450 guests. And we are not talking just any old wedding reception, we are talking proper full on emersive entertaining ineractive themed wedding receptions. Believe us, they are masters of this! For example their medieval banquet includes 4 courses, medieval show, knights, acrobats...and there are costumes available to hire. As we know, there isn't anything bigger on TV than Game of Thrones right now, and they do a brilliant Thrones wedding!

If Medieval or Thrones isn't you thing, they do so many other themes, something is bound to be up your street. Masquerade Balls, Alice in Wonderland..

 

Mad Men themed Wedding

The most stylish TV show ever?

Mad Men themed Wedding

One of my most favourite shows in recent times has come to an end, so please let's keep Don Draper alive by dreaming about a Mad Men themed wedding.... If I had my time again, I'm pretty sure I would have gone for this. It's super glamorous, fun, retro without the bunting, and the cocktails are to die for!

Look at those outfits!

There is no shortage of inspiration for this theme - pinterest is particularly good for fabulous ideas. But one thing it doesn't  include is a venue, and I think we have the ideal one for a Mad Men style wedding. That venue is the London Hilton, Park Lane
