Hands up who got a shiny new rock over the summer! Well ladies & gents, you’re in the right place.
Not only does Coco Wedding Venues showcase some of the greats – Hedsor House, Cliveden and Blenheim Palace to name but a few; we also take great pride in working with some of newest and freshest wedding venues on the scene!
So let me guide you though our hot picks for 2017…
Fern & Field
Fern & Field is set on a family run working arable farm of one hundred and sixty five acres. Located in Kent, in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, where the High Weald rises out of the Romney Marshes.
Farnell Farm has a choice of stunning locations, including ancient bluebell woodlands; a lake surrounded by giant fir trees; a boutique vineyard; and a twenty five acre wild grass meadow with uninterrupted panoramic views.
Garthmyl Hall is a traditional Georgian property that has been lovingly restored keeping its traditional features but adding an elegant, timeless and quirky touch.
You will have the whole place to yourselves and the team are super flexible and helpful. They want you to have the day YOU want. They don’t have more than one wedding per weekend/mid week, so you don’t feel the conveyer-belt pressure. You have all the time you need to set up your dream wedding the day before and enjoy that valuable time with your family and friends.

Are you newly engaged…? Is getting married in London your dream, but you don’t know where to start planning…? If the answer to both these questions is unquestionably yes, then we’ve got some good news! To illustrate the full potential of Lindley Hall as a wedding venue, Royal Horticultural Halls will be hosting a showcase event this autumn designed to help you get ready for your big day!
The Royal Horticultural Halls Wedding Showcase Event
The Royal Horticultural Halls’ sparkling wedding showcase event is taking place on Saturday 1st October, from 11am to 5pm, and entry is absolutely free. Visitors will get the chance to experience demonstrations of lighting, draping, furniture and floral designs that are designed to provide inspiration for brides and grooms to be.
In addition to being able to explore the venue and its facilities, guests will have the chance to talk to their events team and suppliers. As such, you will get the opportunity to ask them questions and conduct thorough research into all the options that they can make available for your special day.
The North Annexe of the Hall will also be dressed as a night garden, plus a cocktail bar and various dining table arrangements will be set up to present an impression of what the venue looks like once wedding celebrations get into full swing!
A Beautiful, Versatile Wedding Venue in Central London
Located in the heart of London, within walking distance of Victoria Station and just a short drive from many of the capital’s most prestigious hotels, The Lindley Hall at Royal Horticultural Halls is perfect for hosting spectacular, grand-scale weddings.
Offering 875 square meters of customisable space, capacity for up to 450 guests, state-of-the-art light and sound systems, and a wide-range of on-site facilities, the Hall can be fully customised to meet whatever your heart desires. Meanwhile, the venue’s Edwardian features and stunning glass-vaulted ceiling offer the ideal backdrop for those all-important wedding photos.

We’re all about supporting our venues as well as our couples, so when the lovely folks at World Inspired Tents got in touch to tell me they’d just launched a fab new website I simply had to take a peek! Visual, easy-to-use and really informative, their new platform is a doddle for any couples looking to have a tipi wedding; from galleries to inspire, prices and floor layouts to plan and gorgeous furnishings to complete the picture – it’s pretty darn awesome!
So as we want to shout from the rooftops about this new tipi wedding website, we thought we’d take this opportunity to have a chat with the owners Donna & Ed.
Here’s the World Inspired Tents story…
The Story of World Inspired Tents
Donna & Ed Wright:
We provide giant Nordic tipis for weddings and events across the South West, Southern England, Wales and the Midlands. We launched World Inspired Tents back in 2007, and although we have grown over the years, we are still every bit the family run business that was launched over nine years ago.
We discovered the tipis at a country fair and immediately fell in love with them. At the time there were no other tipi rental businesses in the area, and we immediately saw the potential of using the tipis to create beautiful wedding venues.

If you’re currently searching for a true industrial space with enough white walls to be classed as a ‘blank canvas’ then friends, you can stop the search…
We’ve long been fans of the Hackney Venues collection and in particular The West Reservoir Centre in East London. This sailing centre features a 1930s red-brick tower boasting fascinating structural design elements, flooded by natural light.
Today we’re showing you how to use the space and style it with a chic but industrial vibe thanks to a whole team of talented suppliers including Hannah Charlotte Weddings, Bow & Beau, Catherine Short Floral Design, Oh Wonder Calligraphy and many, many more.
Thanks to Bai & Elle Photography for capturing all the gorgeousness and of course the mini-film, which is definitely worth a watch!
Industrial, Crystal Chic Styled Bridal Shoot
Meg & Marni:
We collaborated with Hannah from Hannah Charlotte Weddings and Claudia from Bow & Beau to come up with a fantastic concept that would inspire contemporary brides. We went for a soft, feminine inspiration shoot with a modernised twist. Rose Quartz, Copper details, geometric shapes and contemporary bridal wear, teamed with luscious florals and complimented by a cool industrial style wedding venue.
Guys… This venue is all kinds of epic and I don’t even know where to start.
We have a pretty awesome collection and over time I expect it to change, develop, we’ll lose some and gain some and it will be an ever-evolving family that I’ll ultimately always be proud to handpick and showcase. One venue that’s been with us since we launched in 2013 is The Bell in Ticehurst and last month I hit the road to see it all for myself.
