In the Heart of the City
Traditionally Spring and Summer are the most popular times of year for weddings and we have shown many beautiful pictures of barns and marquees, rolling lawns, bunting and fantastically elaborate and romantic outside lighting. But now I sit here in my office and its raining outside and my feet are cold, and a wedding in a tent is very very far away from my thoughts.... What I'm thinking about instead is a city wedding, where it doesn't matter if it is tipping down, and blowing a gale, where, in fact, almost that type of weather is preferable. And because, if I lean out of my bedroom window as far as I can without falling, and look to the left I can sometimes see St Paul's (on a day which is less cloudy than today!) it makes me think of a new venue which is literally in the shadow of that beautiful cathedral and that is Corney and Barrow Paternoster Square... If a London experience is what you are after, what could be better? The romance of the architecture is shown in the main picture....and then step inside and there is a sumptuous sophisticated feel - with lounge bars and terraces and private rooms if you want (useful if you want a after party which I wrote about last month). They offer a truly bespoke service and it has the feel of one of the main London Hotels but without the price tag.... it is really really worth considering.

And why not see if you are eligible to get married in St Paul's - you or your parents either have to be a member of the Order of St Michael and St George, or the order of the British Empire - see the website for details
