Our Favourite London Venues
Wednesday 23rd August 2017
Well happy summer to you all from all of us at Pop Rocks HQ!
Summer means just one word when you’re one of London’s best function bands: WEDDINGS! And 2017 has been no different - we have been all over the country performing for all manner of weddings: from the big to the small, the glamorous to the rustic and the traditional to the non-conventional.
And not only have we met some truly lovely couples along the way, we’ve had the privilege to perform at some pretty awesome venues too.
Planning a wedding in the big smoke, can be awesome - you’re certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to the host of incredible venues where you can tie the knot, but it can also be a little daunting. Where do you even start?!
Well that’s where we come in, folks. As one of the top wedding bands London has to offer, we consider ourselves quite the expert on London wedding venues, so we thought we’d share with you our top 5 faves - how about that?!
Fancy saying I Do just a stone’s throw from King Henry VIII’s famous Hampton Court Palace? Look no further. Hampton Court house, an exclusive and exquisite Grade II listed building, set in 8 acres of 18th Century Gardens and surrounded by Surrey Parkland, truly is the most quintessentially romantic wedding venue. We performed there recently and received a fantastic testimonial:
"The guys were AMAZING. The dance floor was full throughout the evening because they were that good. The first dance was sensational, they did such a great job. Please pass our thanks onto the guys."

For a venue completely different to Hampton Court House, look no further than this little gem. Loft Studios is equally as beautiful, but in a much more contemporary and minimalist way and they have the added benefit of an in-house wedding planning, bespoke catering and full production services, to make your big day as stress-free as possible!
You can’t get much cooler than Stour Space. Based in East-London, this multi-functional creative venue offers couples a true blank canvas. With a 2000 square foot gallery, a large function room plus an outdoor river terrace, Stour Space is perfect for couples searching for a venue that has the potential to be as unique as they are.
Imagine saying your vows in the heart of The Surrey Hills, an area of outstanding natural beauty, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of a vineyard. Sounds pretty magical, right? Well you can make this a reality at Denbies Wine Estate (just think of those photos!).
We played for an awesome wedding here recently and Chris and Kerianne, the Bride and Groom had some very kind things to say about us indeed:
"5/5 - Thank you for playing at our wedding. All our guests have commented on how they loved the band and that they did a great job and we have to agree. The dance floor was packed all night and they did a fantastic performance of our first dance song. Thank you!"

And last, but most certainly not least, a venue that definitely has the wow factor. In the heart of London’s financial district, The Gherkin offers unrivalled 360 degree views of the capital and it’s floor-to-ceiling panoramic windows make for a wedding at the very height of chic and sophistication. Let’s just hope none of your guests are afraid of heights!!
So there you have it, chaps. Some of the best London wedding venues from one of the best London party bands!
We look forward to seeing you on the dancefloor!
