6. Secret River Garden

Imagine a hidden woodland where the river Thames meets Twickenham. So secret they only do four weddings a year. It's not licensed but you can have a blessing between the apple trees and feel like you're in the hidden countryside when you're in fact 20 minutes from Waterloo.  https://www.facebook.com/secretrivergarden/

8. The Ned

The recently opened Ned Hotel is in the heart of London.  The historic building, designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens almost a century ago, has been carefully restored, retaining many original period features, including walnut panelling and vintage chandeliers, as well as ample arched windows to allow for plenty of natural light. See if you can sneak a peak at the members bar down in the bank vault as well. https://www.thened.com/
