Why London is the Perfect Place for a Large Wedding

By Bill Clark

London – the UK’s vibrant capital city – is jam packed with British heritage and plenty of things to see and do, but is it the best location for a large wedding? The Royal Family certainly seem to think so, with the most recent high-profile London wedding being that of Prince William and Kate Middleton, with thousands lining the streets to get a glimpse of the happy couple and even more tuning in to watch the ceremony and celebrations on television. Although you might not be planning a wedding on such a large scale as the royals, London can be the perfect destination for tying the knot – and here’s why.
