    Our Guide to African Wedding Venues in London

    London is an exciting place to host an African wedding. There are various wedding venues in all corners of the city with the capacity and flexibility to showcase a colourful celebration of love. Whether you’re looking to host a Nigerian wedding, a Ghanaian wedding, a Zimbabwean wedding or a Cameroonian wedding, you can count on VenueCrew to find the perfect set-up. 

    Some African couples desire an authentic family affair filled with ceremonial customs and fun-filled partying, including the traditional ‘money dance’. If so, VenueCrew can find you an African wedding venue with a large dancefloor area, or a dry hire wedding venue where you can bring in your favourite caterer. If that’s the case, we’d highly recommended the Royal Horticultural Halls. Its Lindley Hall accommodates up to 450 guests with a stage. To learn more about at this inspiring blank canvas, download the Royal Horticultural Halls wedding brochure.

    Alternatively, you might be interested in a contemporary twist to a classic African wedding. Some couples like to introduce a fusion of cultures and prefer a modern wedding space. That way, their guests will bring the decoration in the form of national dress. Sofitel London St James is an excellent example of a sophisticated wedding suite where you can keep things understated or go all out with colourful florals and outfits. Interested in their wedding packages? Have a look at the Sofitel London St James venue profile.

     

    Venue Specialist Tip No. 1: Dry Hire Wedding Venues Permit External Caterers

    Do you want more choice of wedding suppliers and a higher level of autonomy when planning your African wedding in London? Picking a dry hire venue gives you the ultimate freedom to choose a florist, caterer and decor that you like best. The Grand Connaught Rooms is a popular dry hire venue in Holborn, with well-equipped kitchens and a striking Art Deco ballroom with colour changing LEDs. It’s an unmissable stop-off on your London venue viewing tour. Have a look at the Grand Connaught Rooms brochure for more details.

    East Wintergarden is another excellent events centre with a jaw-dropping glass roof and direct access to the riverside. The Main Hall has a capacity for up to 1000, so you can go to town with the decorations, dancefloor, and entertainment. It’s a magnificent modern venue where the sky’s the limit for African weddings.

    Venue Specialist Tip No. 2: Hotel Wedding Venues Keep All Your Guests Under One Roof

    African weddings are typically for hundreds of guests. So, a hotel wedding venue makes it easy for everyone to arrive and get ready. Hotels like the Waldorf Hilton in central London allow you to enjoy the ceremony, reception and overnight stay all in one location. Its spacious Palm Court is a breathtaking setting for ceremonies beneath an opaque ceiling. Afterwards, your reception meal will take place in the beautiful Adelphi Suite. To find out more information, head to the Waldorf Hilton venue profile.

    Another dramatic hotel backdrop to your vibrant African wedding celebrations is Andaz London Liverpool Street in East London. This 5-star hotel has an original 1901 Ballroom with a domed stainless roof feature. It’s a vision of opulence and grandeur, with gleaming white marble floors. It doesn’t take much imagination to appreciate how beautiful African weddings are here. To see yourself and book in a private viewing, visit the Andaz London Liverpool Street profile.
