For some the London Borough of Hackney is hipster central and just the place for a steam punk wedding, the groom in tweed and splendid facial hair, the bride in full sleeve and the coolest vintage, dress and the wedding limo a Hackney carriage. That is all there of course and there really are some very cool wedding venues in places like Hoxton and Dalston.
Hackney is also the wide-open spaces of Hackney Marshes and the riverside wedding venues on the River Lea, which has wound its way down towards east London. In the northern part of the borough is village-like Stoke Newington, with its wedding locations that match the neighbourhoodÃs style, giving a whiff of secret London locations.
True to form, some venues are reclaimed and recycled buildings. Among the funky and unusual wedding places are former churches and town halls and some lovely old community centres. There are also pubs a plenty just waiting to host your wedding reception, from traditional East End boozers to stripped-down retro bars that are somehow modernist too. Among the oddest but most lovely venues is a community garden, for a low key wedding celebration.
Naturally an inner city London borough like Hackney will be able to host African weddings, Asian events and Irish parties; not that an old-fashioned English wedding would be a problem. Whatever the bride and groom need, local catering companies will be able to deliver.
By now, you will have picked up that Shoreditch, Homerton, Upper Clapton and other parts of Hackney will offer some very competitive wedding packages, with special offers and interesting deals available. The wedding planners are venues in the London Borough of Hackney will be able to field all your questions about civil weddings, wedding breakfasts and money saving matrimonial solutions. Happy venue hunting in Hackney.
