Planning Your Stylish Modern Wedding in London & Beyond

Retro-inspired Rock n’ Roll coolness is what we adore and specialise in. The ’60s and 70’s as our favourite eras, and where lots of our inspiration comes from. We thrive on creating that rockstar wedding vibe the trailblazers set all those years ago. 

Our love of London


London is a cradle of all things iconic and cool - from music, fashion, nightlife, design, and architecture.  There are so many incredible wedding venues in London suitable for different budgets and vibes.  You can read more about how to choose your wedding venue on the blog here


Of course, the UK in general has an incredible selection of wedding venues to choose from.  I’m here to help with that if you need me to. It’s all a part of the service here at Whole Lotta Love Weddings.

A few of our favourites are listed below, but don’t fret if you don’t see your venue amongst them.

We couldn’t possibly fit all the cool venues onto one page!

Choosing the right wedding venue

Your venue choice should be the number one priority when planning a wedding, so doing your research is vital. It's the backdrop to everything, so it's got to feel right for you. We can totally help you with that, of course!


What we love the most is when our couples choose plain canvas dry-hire venues, where we can put their style stamp onto with ease, or wedding venues that are far removed from the typical hotel wedding setup.  Think lush grounds, high ceilings and loads of natural light. A venue needs to be completely on brand for your vision to work.  When choosing your venue, take into consideration the budget, the number of guests, and the interior that will give you the opportunity to make it look just right.  A place that says, you.

This stunning hotel has six Grade I-listed event rooms and two outdoor terraces available for hire.  The walnut panelling and vintage chandeliers, as well as ample domed windows allow for plenty of natural light.

One Friendly Place, South East London

One Friendly Place Deptford​​​​

This incredible 1930s warehouse space is a truly unique wedding venue that I adore. It’s big, 7500sq feet, spread over 4 floors and even has a roof terrace. It’s full of industrial chic backdrops, a decaying conservatory, and the whole interior is full of incredible vintage boudoir-like furniture, resembling a rockstar pad. Loads of parking, a large kitchen that can be used for catering. Just incredible!
