Unexpected Spaces: Greenhouses

Offering lush tranquility & botanical escapism we’re inspired by the magnificence of ancient glasshouses as wedding reception venues

Offering a lush tranquility, a sense of botanical escapism even when nestled in the heart of a city, and a stunningly natural, serene setting, we’re inspired by the magnificence of ancient glasshouses for wedding reception venues. Bathed in sunlight and warmth by day, a greenhouse feels oasis-like filled with orchids, fernery and palms; an emerald tinted paradise, which when strung with lights by night can transform into an almost otherworldly oasis.

Perfect for Winter celebrations in cooler climates or for those seeking the feel of an outdoor wedding (without the risk of rain), these lush, vacuous, sensory spaces offer a stunning alternative and a completely unique setting. Ranging in aesthetic from Edwardian and Victorian elegance (traditionally Orangeries), to the industrial rooftop style atriums found mid-city, as well as more intimate residential nursery spaces, each offer a different but consistently unexpected feel to an ordinary reception setting.

Alternatively, a transparent marquee filled with lush foliage and fernery (with the help of an expert florist!) could achieve a similarly spectacular glasshouse effect. Find a list below of some of the worlds most magnificent greenhouse spaces, available to be booked for wedding receptions, as well as restaurants, greenhouse in feel and aesthetic…
