Dickens Themed Weddings

In a beautiful City of London Venue

Dickens Themed Weddings

If you are planning a winter wedding, nothing shouts 'Winter' or 'Christmas' more than Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. That and being in the heart of the city of London! Round every corner you almost expect to bump into Pip or the Artful Dodger..! We reckon that literary-themed weddings are on the up, and as we know we have already done The Great Gatsby. There are endless possibilities when it comes to decor and dress for a Dickens-themed wedding; indeed Miss Havisham, the fraying, fantastical beauty in 'Great Expectations', provided the inspiration for a collection of ethereal and dramatic extravagance by the British-based designer brand, Marchesa (see main picture). A great modern take!

Or more venues with a 'watery' theme...

London Wedding Venues on Water

Back on to our 'watery' theme which we wrote about a few weeks ago, we thought we'd flag up these two beautiful and very cool London venues, both of which have amazing views overlooking water.

Directly on the River

"because you're a woman, and nothing makes you wetter than a rock in a velvet box with a massive mark-up!" Hmmm, food for thought! Click on 'continue reading' for more ads... 

Venues with their own church...

Historic Hengrave Hall has this and more...

Hengrave hall

Available on an exclusive basis only, all weddings at Hengrave Hall are entirely bespoke affairs. We absolutely love this venue (Emily even attended a wedding there last year) as it's absolutely stunning, set within the breathtaking surroundings of the Suffolk countryside, and has its own charming church so you can do the whole thing under one roof! Worth knowing too that if religion is not your thing, they are also
