After 10 years and now one newborn, my OH and I have finally decided we're going to get hitched in April next year.
It will be a very low key affair, with somewhere between 30 and 45 guests including the two of us and our close family. We ideally want a venue where we can have the (civil) ceremony and the reception at the same place in one afternoon.
Priorities are location - ideally south london, but central london at a push - and very good quality food. As it's a small wedding, I really want to enjoy the food and remember it.
So far we've started looking at the Union Club in Soho but I think the costs might be much less reasonable than a glance at their website states. We can't afford to go overboard as I'm on maternity leave so our income isn't amazing this year.
Any recommendations? (Or, of course, anywhere to avoid?!)
Went to an awesome ceremony at the asylum in Peckham recently. Absolutely amazing. Very atmospheric. There's the rosendale pub. You could have your ceremony at dulwich college. There's kingswood house in se21; the trafalgar arms in Greenwich. Lethal palace - are they licenced? There's the rivoli ballroom in brockley which may now do wedding receptions (they didn't 3 years ago, such a shame). Paradise by way of Kensal Green...
