Intimate Wedding Venues for Small Gatherings

A wedding is always a big occasion, some like to go all out with an extravagant wedding whilst others prefer a more low key intimate occasion that’s just between the couple and their nearest and dearest. Plus, the cost of large wedding venues can be an off put for some, so if you’re looking to spend your special day in a modest setting with a small gathering of guests then we have some perfect options for you. Our venues cater for all wedding styles and sizes but in this blog post we’re going to focus on the best intimate wedding venues the UK has to offer.


Baltic Restaurant

Restaurants are a great venue for smaller weddings and for some couples alls that matters is the ceremony and celebrating with some good food and drink. The Baltic Restaurant in London is the perfect intimate wedding venue offering private dining and exclusive use of the restaurant and bar. You can choose to hire out singular rooms for a small number of guests up to 35 or if this is too restricted and you don’t want to upset anyone by taking them off the guest list you can hire out the entire restaurant for added space whilst still keeping that intimate atmosphere.

Although this venue is a restaurant it’s a regular host to many events. Baltic Restaurant has a dedicated events team who can organise your whole wedding reception including the menu, music, entertainment and flowers etc. You also have the opportunity to add a personal touch to your wedding reception by uploading some of your favourite photos to the projector screen to share with friends and family.


Cheyne Walk Brasserie

If you’re still keen on the idea of an opulent wedding (after all it is a special occasion) but you still want to keep the event small and intimate, Cheyne Walk Brasserie offers both. This venue is located in the lavish and fashionable borough of Chelsea and is one of the most sought after venues in this area. This french restaurant has an air of romance, perfect for weddings and it’s beautiful interior design and views of the Albert Bridge river reflects this. With chandeliers, striking blue leather seats, high ceilings and chaise lounges, you’ll feel like you’ve just stepped into a boutique restaurant in the streets of Paris.

If you and your future spouse are food and drink connoisseurs you’ll love the french menu and the complementing wines. The venue can host up to 200 guests so you can choose to fill this space or keep it small. This truly is a gem in our list of intimate wedding venues that is sure to make your occasion special, romantic and memorable.


Primo Bar

If you and your partner have always been fans of partying and like to spend your weekends in fancy nightclubs then why would you want to celebrate your wedding any other way? If your idea of celebrating a special occasion is drinking exotic cocktails and dancing to live music in an elegant setting then Primo Bar in London is perfect for you. Primo Bar is a trendy nightclub close to London’s South Bank and offers a fantastic night out filled with cocktails and free live music. This bar can also be hired out exclusively for events.
