One Events is one of London's leading events companies and we are delighted to have two of their venues on the site. I wanted to write a little bit about them, and the company, as they are certainly extremely special.
One Marlybone, formally Holy Trinity Church, (see main image) was built in 1826-28 to the designs of famous Sir John Soane to celebrate the defeat of Napoleon. Soane is thought of to be Englan's finest architect in the Neo Classical Style. (His best work is the Bank of England). His Neo Classical influence is evident in the portico of the Church and his constant desire to work with light is never more evident than it is in the first floor galleries. This remarkable venue is used for some illustrious events throughout the year, but it is hard to think of a better venue in which to hold your wedding
This celebrity couple thought so as was recently featured in Hello magazine, who were covering the wedding of Emmerdale's Kevin Fletcher and his singer wife Elizabeth Marsland.
And this is it dressed for a another recent wedding at Christmas - isn't just absolutely beautiful.
A unique and special place to tie the knot - London Wedding Venue
I have been visiting and loving the Ritzy cinema in Brixton for nearly 20 years and so I was especially excited to hear that they have started to host weddings. I'm waiting for some new pics from them, but here is a little teaser of a recent wedding they had there. I'm sure you'll agree how beautiful and happy Aysha and Luke look.
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.
Hen parties don't have to be all about booze, L plates and male strippers. Fine if that's your thing - and it is plenty of peoples. But increasingly women are looking for an alternative experience. As we all know, yoga weekends generally, are becoming more and more popular and therefore the idea of having one with all your best girlfriends and very definitely jettisoning the shiny sash for a yoga mat, makes perfect sense.
Poundon House is one of our loveliest venues and one which we have always admired. A private family home, it was built at the turn of the century by a follower of Lutyens in the Palladian style and is approached up an avenue of lime trees. The wonderful team there now offer yoga retreats a few times a year. To call them special is an understatement, just read this description of how your day would be:
'Spend your morning in quiet meditation with only birdsong to disturb, an indulgent afternoon soaking in a scented bath or curled up in the library. Then, after a candle-lit dinner, toast your rejuvenating limbs by the Drawing Room's roaring open fire.'
Of course it doesn't have to be a hen weekend; it can be simply a well-being weekend or a pre wedding retreat just for yourself or perhaps mother and daughter time together. Whatever you choose, you will feel rested and refreshed and ready for the wedding.
