Your favourite wedding story: We spent three months looking at venues all over London, wanting something a little bit different to the standard hotel format. We looked at museums, country houses, galleries and even courthouses – but the moment we stepped inside the Globe, it was exactly what we were looking for after all those weeks – magical, romantic and unique – perfect!
