The Big Wedding Weekend has been going for several years now and so far over one hundred couples have tide the knot at the iconic grade 1 listed Royal Festival Hall. We absolutely love the idea of this - it's perfect for couples on a budget or who have recently got engaged and haven't got time to organise a summer wedding, but really want one! They have two packages - (1st is only £2450, 2nd is £3450) - unbelievably reasonable and unheard of to have the opportunity to marry on the Southbank with view of the Thames at an affordable cost.
We love Poundon House. Situated near Bicester in Oxfordshire, it is a private family home, which 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. There are two Reception Rooms licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and in addition the Terrace can be used to seat guests providing an exceptional outdoor setting for the Ceremony (maximum guests 200 persons). The Marquee is also licensed for Civil Ceremonies, and is an ideal backdrop for large Weddings. There are some available dates left for October and they are offereing a 25% discount!! This is an opportunity not to be missed! For further information call Natalie on 07866453831
The Southbank is one of our absolutely favourite parts of London and so when, last year, the Southbank Centre decided to celebrate the fact that same-sex marriage became legal, and created the Big Wedding Weekend, we were extremely excited. 70 couples - gay and straight, young and old - got married or renewed their vows in what was an amazing weekend for everyone.
And as it was such an incredible success, that they are going to do it again!
