Today Im sharing this creative London wedding dreamt up by this super cool couple who held their wedding ceremony in Chelsea Registry Office (you can read my tips for getting married there here) and then transformed the Royal Oak on Columbia Road for their reception….Yes it wasnt a typical wedding venue, but with a little bit of vision and design they built such a fantastic space that was ‘just them’. And with the bonus of not having to hire tables or chairs and having the design aesthetic that they loved which had already been created by the pub it just meant they were able to focus on the fun elements of decorating the room….Most things coming from the little unique shops along Columbia Road. Flowers by Rebel Rebel, Cake by Lily Vanilli and dress from Luella’s Bridal. It also created such a cosy atmosphere amongst the haze of a good meal, fairy lights and candles, banging tunes and as much cake and champagne as you could eat.
If you are hunting around for a good reception space for your wedding Id totally recommend the Royal Oak (and also most other Gastropubs in London). They offer cool spaces, good pub grub and usually fantastic lighting and backdrops. You can then splurge on making the place your own and also using your budget for the things that really matter to you.
