Oyster Shed weddings are vibrant, relaxed and brimming with creative potential. Located on the banks of the River Thames, just a short stroll from iconic landmarks including London Bridge and The Shard, you and your guests will be inspired by the panoramic skyline that surrounds this unique London wedding reception venue.
One of the Oyster Shed’s most attractive features is its full length gleaming windows that connect its interior with the ever evolving river landscape. For many, it feels as though you are floating on your own privately moored ship with the water peacefully lapping up towards the stylishly stripped wooden floors.
Outside, a connected courtyard offers another desirable aspect to the wedding venue. The terrace boasts comfortable lounge seating, optional shade cover and more direct river views. It’s a scenic space to serve laid-back nibbles and drinks as your guests arrive from the ceremony.
The spacious open plan event space that forms the centre of The Oyster Shed can be transformed into any design or layout that you envision. From nautical themes through to quintessential London styling, the neutral colours of the walls and floors lend themselves to a huge range of ideas. The double height ceiling also adds to the uplifting feel to the room, and enhances the all important acoustics for live bands.
Wedding photographers will rejoice when it comes to shooting your wedding day at The Oyster Shed. The in-house events team are more than happy to recommend professionals who are familiar with the venue and how to capture it at its best. Memorable frames in the past have been taken of relatives and friends laughing in the summery Oyster Shed Courtyard, of the humorous speeches at your reception dinner, and of the newly married couple taking their first stroll as husband and wife along the River Thames path.
Not many London wedding venues boast such a copious amount of natural light, and thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows along the entire length of the Oyster Shed, photographs are as beautiful inside as they are outdoors. The balcony that runs along the upper half of the reception space also provides opportunities for aerial shots as your guests dine.
Along the river path, there are also a beautiful array of striking skyscrapers to feature in your wedding day photos, such as the soaring Shard for futuristic city shots, or the historic London Bridge. Further along the river via a short boat ride, the HMS Belfast ship and Tower of London are other iconic landmarks that add a quintessential London theme to your wedding day album.
