“..brought tears to my eyes when I saw the wonders she did in the venue! I wanted a modern vibe with eucalyptus, some dried flowers and some fresh blowers in blush tones, and also hung a massive flower cloud above us in the venue which was magical.”

Happy couple married in September

Beautiful minimalist venue
We got married at Core Clapton last September and were so pleased that we chose this venue to have our micro wedding (due to restrictions on numbers due to Covid). It’s a beautiful minimalist venue and we loved the fact that we could do what we wanted to the space. There’s a large upstairs room which is perfect for the ceremony and downstairs area which we used for the reception. We dealt with Paddy during the process who was very accommodating and great at communicating with us throughout the whole process.

Describe the best wedding that happened at Core Clapton?

It's impossible to choose one and I hope that all our couples would say their's.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try and enjoy it and remember the day is about you. If you are doing most of the planning yourselves then a bit of extra help on the day is never a bad thing. Caterers can be surprisingly flexible in what they can help with as well.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We had a wedding where the Bride was of Indian descent and the Groom's dad was from their Caribbean and mum from London. They did multiple costume changes to reflect all of their heritage.
