Couples choosing to get married in London are spoilt for choice when it comes to wedding venues.  We’re not short of Georgian townhouses, boutique hotels, creative art spaces and Victorian built gastropubs in this part of the world but there are a multitude of reasons why you should consider a warehouse wedding venue in London.

If you ask any photographer, we will tell you that light is our best friend.  Although we’re a hardy bunch whose job is to extract the best photos out of any given environment, we do appreciate all that lovely natural light that typifies the properties of a warehouse. 

All that open space, high beams, tall ceilings, huge windows and skylights that juxtapose with rustic bare brick won’t go to waste. Warehouse venues also tend to have more flexibility to make the space your own. 

They’re often multiple use spaces becoming art galleries, filming locations, photography studios as well as wedding and events.  The changeable nature of these spaces potentially allows you to put your own stamp on the venue.

Copeland Gallery

Set in the middle of Peckham’s cultural quarter, Copeland Park is a white-walled art, multi-room space set amongst one of South London’s most eclectic, vibrant communities of artisans.  It’s quite possibly the least well-know wedding venue on this list so for me, is classified as a bit of a hidden gem!

Location: Peckham, South London

Capacity: 500

One Friendly Place

A short hop across South-East London is One Friendly Place, a large, multi-space venue spread over 4 floors.  It’s generous size and it’s use as a filming studio means your guests will have just as much fun exploring the rooms and bric-a-brac props as you would in flexing your creative muscles.

Location: On the border of Deptford, Greenwich, Blackheath, South London

MC Motors

A 6000sq ft space full of charm and quirkiness in trendy Dalston, MC Motors is one of the most popular industrial style wedding venues in London reason.  Textured walls, bare bricks, props galore and an abundance of natural light and quirky surroundings – what’s not to love?

Location: Dalston, E8

Capacity: 350

Loft Studios

Describing themselves as a ’boutique’, Loft Studios (a refurbished Victorian foundry) has a little more polish than other warehouse venues.  Boasting a number of studios and suites within it’s vicinity, the space is known for high end media production.  With it’s super-white walls, coves and polished floors, it’s certainly a venue that combines chic with modern.

Location: Kensal Green, West London

Capacity: 500
