Gay weddings – A time to celebrate, London style!


Gay weddings – A time to celebrate, London style!


Congratulations! It is official, as of 29th March 2014, gay marriages will be legal across the UK. This is a truly special time for all of our gay couples and we are so excited to be working with them to create a special day of celebration across all of our London venues.

It is hard to predict whether a surge in gay weddings will be seen from the start, when civil partnerships began in 2005, 18,000 ceremonies were conducted in the first 12 months and less than half that in subsequent years. Whatever the numbers though, it is an important time for all couples and we embrace the moment.

At The Perfect Wedding Company we totally believe in working with couples to create their vision and we have a whole host of venues, in London, which suit all requirements. Whether you are looking for a traditional venue steeped in history and grandeur or a more modern contemporary venue, or even venues with stunning outdoor spaces and views, we have it all and our wedding planners are here to guide you every step of the way.

At this monumental time, we are incredibly excited to announce that Gibson Hall has obtained a license for outdoor ceremonies. Situated within the heart of the Square Mile, Gibson Hall is the only venue in the City of London with this license so we are very unique indeed! This magnificent Grade I listed venue features a gorgeous garden space with views of the Gherkin and is a truly wonderful setting for a summer ceremony.

To celebrate, if you book your wedding to take place before the end of 2014 the venue hire will be half price!

Booking your wedding through The Perfect Wedding Company means that we can also advise you on your style of catering for the day. Are you looking to create a formal sit down affair? Or perhaps something a little bit more fun with interactive food stations and candy buffets would suit both you and your partner’s personality and flair.

The ideas are endless and with so much choice being available in such a truly fabulous city, where certain no couple will be disappointed.

One piece of advice we give to all brides and grooms is to stick to your vision and don’t let others define what your wedding should or should not be, you do not need to shy away from doing something different and exciting.

Be bold, be daring, let it be whatever you want it to be and enjoy!
