Tie The Knot In Style With The Big Wedding Weekend

South Bank Centre are once again holding their Big Wedding Weekend, where they are inviting you to get married, renew your vows or convert your civil partnership into a marriage with a fabulous celebration.

They did this last year at the Royal Festival Hall, where 70 couples tied the knot or renewed their vows amongst friends, family, and a glass of bubbly. The Royal Festival Hall is a fantastic venue, but don’t take my word for it – check out the official page here.

Interested? You need to contact complete the online form here and and they’ll be in touch. Time is running out, though, as you and your partner have to give notice of your marriage to your registry office by July 28, and South Bank Centre can’t take any bookings after this date if you’re getting married. However, if you’re renewing your vows or converting your civil partnership, you have until mid August.

 

The last official open day has already been and gone, but if you want to take a look around then you can still do that if you contact them. You can find their email at the bottom of this article.

I’m sure some of you are wondering, what exactly can I get for my money? Well, they have a couple of packages available for your perusal.

Package one – £1950

  • A 90-minute ceremony with choirs, fanfares and live music on the Royal Festival Hall stage
  • A glass of bubbly for all your guests
  • Registrar
  • Photographs with stunning backdrops
  • Video of your ceremony (unedited)
  • Two bouquets of flowers/buttonholes
  • Day-time and evening activities
  • Riverside location
  • 40 guests*

Package two – £2950

  • A 90-minute ceremony with choirs, fanfares and live music on the Royal Festival Hall stage
  • A glass of bubbly for all your guests
  • Wedding buffet. This is a cold tapas menu with a dessert and doesn’t include drink. You can see their wedding menu here. You can buy drink in advance and we will provide some drinks packages.
  • Registrar

*40 guests includes the wedding couple for refreshment purposes. If you would like more guests, the prices are £10 per person with package one or £35 per person with package two.

The main difference between the two available packages seems to be the availability of food, and as the wedding they provide seems like it would be an all day affair, that is definitely a vital component. The information available doesn’t make it clear if food will still be available at each guests’ personal cost, or not. It might be worth sending them an email at the below address to enquire.
