Real Weddings, Wedding Planner London


The Natural History Museum in London was the venue for Eric and Anne’s spectacular wedding this summer. It was utterly spectacular from start to finish. An incredible venue with a sumblime backdrop, without a doubt the most iconinc wedding locations in London. As London Wedding Planners, I was incredibly proud to be a part of the celebrations.

The ceremony took place in Hintze Hall through the dramatic entrance from street level. While the space can host up to 450 guests for larger weddings at the Natural History Museum, Anne and Eric opted for a smaller and more intimate day with around 100 of their friends and family joining from around the globe. For the ceremony, a beautiful arch way was created by talented London wedding florists Pinstripes and Peonies that sat at the bottom of the impressive sweeping staircase that overlooks the venue. It was a beautiful ceremony and I am honoured that I was able to witness it.


Following the ceremony, guests moved through to Fossil Way, which is an intimate space adjacent to Hintze Hall. Guests were served Champagne and delicious canapés from London wedding caterers Food By Dish, expertly coordinated as part of our wedding planning UK services. Meanwhile, a dedicated crew of over 100 staff worked diligently to swiftly and seamlessly transform the space, setting the stage for dinner and dancing later in the evening. It was truly incredible to witness the team’s efficiency in orchestrating this remarkable transformation. Weddings at the Natural History Museum are logistically complex, with the challenge of transitioning from a museum to a wedding venue in less than an hour! The crew’s unwavering dedication ensures that every intricate detail is executed to perfection.

Following the drinks reception, guests moved back through to the now transformed Hintze Hall, a stunning feat made possible by our meticulous wedding planning UK services. Here, they were treated to an exquisite three-course dinner curated by Food by Dish, ensuring a culinary experience that exceeded expectations. Carlei and her team’s dedication shone brightly as they flawlessly executed this gastronomic masterpiece. Meanwhile, Charlotte and the talented team at Bespoke ensured that every moment was filled with entertainment and delight.

Weddings at the Natural History Museum are always special, but this one, in particular, held a unique charm. The seamless coordination of our wedding planning UK team made it an unforgettable event.

After dinner, the celebration continued into the early hours of the morning, lasting until 2 am. The party atmosphere was electrified by a fantastic DJ, while the bar served up incredible cocktails that kept the energy high and the dance floor packed. It was a night to remember, where every detail came together flawlessly to create cherished memories for the newlyweds and their guests.
