Bellatrix Lestrange
- The Harry Potter witch is one of the hottest villainess in the fictional world
Bombshell- If you want to flaunt it, just do it. But do it right!
Black Widow- All you need for this marvel lady is a plain black body-fit suit and an attitude saying out loud, “I’m gonna kill”.

Getting married in winter? You might like to peek in the “Wintry Wedding” Section

Getting married is a life changing experience for everyone and when that marriage is taking place in winter; you have to change a lot of things. Cutting that backless blouse off your wedding list is one of those decisions and sacrifices that you might have to go through during your Wintry Wedding.

All you have to do is just keep certain things in mind, make some teensy weensy changes here and there, and utilise the most of this amazing weather.

Just sit back, subtract stress, add a hiatus, and multiply your enthusiasm while considering these tips.

Keep it indoor!

Approaching winter bites with its teeth and lashes with its tail while bidding adieu. So keeping every function within the four walls seems more of a smart decision you might take this wedding season. Coming to the indoor venues, Gibson Hall is one of the ideal venues for a Unique Weddings. And you might like St. Paul’s Wren Suite if you are organizing a Hindu or Sikh wedding ceremony in London.

Bring out your bright side!

Winter is the season of mostly the dark shades. Go with anything but these and make your special day as lively as colourful with many shades of red, pink, green, yellow, and blue-s. Rest is your choice but don’t stick to one colour scheme as sometimes it bring out the monotony. Try a combination of 3 to 4 colours in order to keep up with the excitement. In case, you are from India, you probably don’t need that advice. Others should get inspired with this Asian wedding culture, all colourful and bright.

Photoshoot outside the booth!

It might sound insane to you, but try capturing some moments outside in the snow or simply, the chilling streets of London.

Wine and Dine!

How can we leave it? Add everything in your menu that you want your favourite people to taste, it’s your day after all, but don’t forget to give a seasonal touch to your wedding cake.

Perfect Way to Choose a Right Venue in London for Any Meeting

Not sure where to host your next meeting in London? Well worry not; we will get this job done for you in less than a day. But before that process, it is very vital to know which venue is the best suitable for your meeting. A rooftop venue might be a good pick for office celebration, but not when you want to make a business pitch, close a deal, or meet with the directors.

So choosing the right venue is absolutely necessary because, as a meeting planner, you don’t want to lose your professionalism. Learn here how to choose a right venue for any meeting situation.

1. When you have an In-person Meeting

If drawing someone’s attention is the sole objective, then in-person meetings should be the best option. They should be organized in a quiet place, where you can comfortably shake hands, exchange words, and involve in a creative discussion. Meeting rooms available at Grand Connaught Rooms, Chiswell Street Dining Rooms and The City Hotel are perfect options where you have a productive in-person meeting. Make sure you have tea, coffee or mineral water facility available within the room, so that your guests or delegates don’t walk away or feel distracted.

2. When you want to Conduct an Interview

Meeting new people and discussing recruitment opportunities definitely require an insightful analysis, which should be done in a tranquil setting. So hiring a comfortable, professional room would be a great choice. The space should have a discrete environment and is filled with natural daylight. In case you’re looking for an interview room in London, we suggest you to please send us your requirements by filling up this enquiry form. The space also allows you and your potential candidates to focus on the task in hand.


3. When you want to hold a Marketing Orientation

If the objective of meeting is to build a relationship, then you have to be careful. Any failed effort may lose new hires or recruits. Yes, you heard it right. Recruitment takes a lot of time and money, so no business can afford to lose new employees. So avoid conducting a bore orientation. You need to spice the occasion and make sure the newbie gets involved in every activity without feeling subconscious. Arrange a lunch or dinner in a hotel banqueting suite with some entertainment programs. To enhance the orientation experience, you can arrange quick games such as Grab Bag Skits, Salt and Peppera and Concentration.

4. When you want to Launch or Announce Something Big

Announcing something big or launching a new product is usually a smart marketing move. Even if, you own a small-sized company, this marketing move can really help you to attract your target audience. The space, where you’re organizing this event, should have stage and virtual surround sound system to connect with the audience. The venue should also add value to your event and can accommodate your anticipated number of guests. St. Paul’s Hotel, Barbican Centre, and The Brewery are some of the best options for product launch events.

We hope these ideas will help you in finding the right venue in London for your next event. If you still think the list is not enough, then please see all our meeting rooms and venues in London.
