how to get married outdoors in the UK
The weddings team enjoyed a great night out at the beautiful Le Gothique earlier this month. Le Gothique is a stunning grade II (star) listed Royal Victoria Patriotic Building situated on Wandsworth Common SW London. It cuts a dominating silhouette against the skyline with its gothic spires and towers, and has a wonderful historic story which lends itself well to any wedding couple who are planning a large wedding with a sense of drama.
And delightfully, we discovered this quirky venue is the only place you can get married outside in the UK. Yes, getting married outside can actually become a reality here! Many wedding venues offer an outdoor, al fresco experience but only Le Gothique offers an actual outdoor wedding ceremony. The outdoor area is a secret cloistered garden internal to the buidling itself which was a great space, quite large but intimate enough for a romantic wedding ceremony. And with an outdoor opportunity, the weather always becomes more of a concern, but a large canopy can be erected to cover, light and heat the garden, and the internal restaurant with its Gothic bar is always available should it be needed. We also found the food delicious, an impressive choice of wine and Mark to be a host with a great character, with lots of intriguing stories to tell about the building!
The outdoor space won Wandsworth in Bloom’s overall best restaurant/bar/hotel winner 2009, 2010 and 2011. For more information contact the owner Mark Justin.
