Anna and Mark are a couple who booked me whilst I was away running the Chicago marathon for their winter Brunswick House wedding with their ceremony at Fitzrovia Chapel, both of which are incredible hidden London wedding venue gems! Fitzrovia Chapel is situated right in the middle of a modern restaurant quarter with a small black unassuming door and modern brick exterior… but when you go inside it’s a stunning golden and royal blue chapel! Brunswick House is set in a private house that sits right on a busy roundabout in Vauxhall, when you go inside it’s filled with beautiful antiques where everything is for sale! So where Anna and Mark had their first dance had a collection of brass door handles drilled into rows in the wall! The food at Brunswick House is frankly, sublime! If you’re a foodie looking for an elegant London winter wedding venue that requires minimal interior decor, Brunswick House is ideal!
I started the day with Anna getting ready at their elegant flat, where she had her gin pre-party decor still set up! Both Anna and Mark are super chilled out and her bridesmaids chose their own navy blue outfits! Anna wore a stunning floral beaded Jenny Packham dress and gold glitter Jimmy Choo shoes.
Fitzrovia Chapel is deconsecrated so it now holds civil ceremonies in a gorgeous low-light setting. Anna and Mark are a modern couple who chose to meet at the Chapel and see each other before the ceremony.
After their ceremony Anna and Mark had drinks and canapes in the Chapel along with a live pianist, and exited Fitzrovia Chapel with sparklers, before they jumped on a red double decker London bus to their Brunswick House wedding reception.
A Brunswick House wedding is a perfect venue for London winter weddings as every part of it’s internal space is extremely photogenic! Anna and Mark decorated the table with golden sprayed pineapples and golden apples as placeholders
After the sumptuous dinner the guests moved down into the vault cellar where the wedding cake and coffees were set up amongst a maze of neon signs. They also had a photo booth set up and sofas in the corridors, where guests could relax or choose to party to their band.
