Wedding Venues London: Natural History Museum
Welcome to the first post of the Wedding venues London series! For those of you planning larger weddings or are looking for something truly unique for your wedding venue, why not try the Natural History Museum in London?
Click here for the events page on the Natural History Museum‘s website.
Here are some images I photographed from a recent event that was held in the main hall of the museum. I just love how a gigantic dinosaur is placed in the middle of the hall as a constant reminder that you’re wedding venue is in fact situated in one of the greatest museums in the world.
The museum has its own planning team and preferred suppliers to help organize your wedding day. It was quite a sight seeing the museum close at 6pm on Saturday and literally a whole army of workers came in to transform the main hall in 2 hours! The main hall has a capacity of 650 guests for dinners and 1200 for receptions.
If you’re dead set on having the museum as your wedding venue but don’t have over £15,200 to spend on your dream wedding venue, fear not. The Natural History Museum also has other rooms that substitute for wedding venues ranging from £5,775 to as low as £2,400.
However, if you’re hoping to dance the night away amongst the residents from the Jurassic period you’ll be a bit disappointed, you’ll only have the venue till midnight. Although, the event I was at lasted till 1am, so you might have to budget even more to have your wedding reception last a bit longer!
