It's not often that the words 'London', 'wedding' and 'affordable' are mentioned in the same sentence. Add 'versatile', 'spacious', 'flexible' and 'inviting' to the mix, and we're bordering on the realms of fantasy, right?

Wrong.

Weddings are expensive - that's a fact, but with these fabulous venues, you needn't break the bank.

At the end of beautiful Bermondsey Street is this former tannery. Stylishly decorated with wood, metal, pops of colour and nods to its previous life, Tanner Warehouse certainly a photogenic space.
