I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s completely in shock that we’re now at the end of August. How did that even happen? But, whilst I’m certainly sad that summer is behind us, I couldn’t be happier to have autumn and winter waiting just around the corner. If you love these seasons as much as I do and if the prospect of an autumn or winter wedding makes your heart sing then read on because one of our favourite venues (and fabulous Little Book For Brides members) the Bingham in Richmond-upon-Thames, has just released details of their seasonal wedding packages and their upcoming open day.
If you’re new to the Bingham then let me introduce you to this unique wedding venue that combines a truly romantic riverside location with contemporary interiors, luxurious bedrooms and impeccable service. It really is the perfect solution if you’re looking to host your celebration in a chic boutique hotel with a cool London vibe that’s also away from the hustle and bustle and makes sure your guests feel at home the moment they step inside. I’ve been lucky enough to stay at the Bingham so I can confidently tell you how brilliant it is.
When it comes to weddings, the Bingham is fabulously flexible, tailoring their offering to your personal requirements. Exclusive use, midweek, last minute, civil ceremonies and partnerships are all catered for, suiting a wide range of budgets, timescales and wedding party sizes. Amy Braund, the in-house wedding coordinator at the Bingham, is quite simply a woman of wonders. No request is too big or small and she is on hand through out the planning process to guide and advise every step of the way ensuring everything is seamless and stress-free.
And this autumn and winter, the Bingham can become your own luxury private wedding residence. Offering you total privacy, you’ll have exclusive use of the entire property so all three Garden rooms, the restaurant, the lounge bar, the private terrace and glorious garden are all yours not to mention use of all fifteen beautiful bedrooms.
From 11am on the morning of the wedding until 11am the day after, the Bingham becomes yours. Imagine a gloriously grown-up house party feel that’s fused with a luxe-yet-laidback atmosphere where no detail is overlooked. You could use the private riverside entrance to arrive in style, design your personal wedding in the elegant Garden Rooms and then spend your first night as a newly married couple in ‘Baudelaire’, the Bingham’s superb deluxe bedroom with extensive river views and a four-poster bed.
Not only that but if you’re a bit of a foodie, let me tell you that the Bingham is renowned for award-winning food. They have a fantastic reputation for modern British cuisine and curate fresh seasonal menus made with quality, sustainable ingredients. You can serve your lucky guests the very best that autumn and winter has to offer in surroundings they’ll never forget.
