Congrats, you said yes! Perhaps you’ve been holding off planning your wedding or maybe you just got engaged this Valentine’s Day. If 2022 is your year, then you’ve arrived at the right place! We asked our friends at the Ivey Spencer, who happen to be in one of London’s most exclusive addresses for weddings, for a few tips and tricks of the trade. A must read, especially for those who are looking to book their wedding this year!
Indoor? Outdoor? The Best of Both Worlds
Wanting to say yes to an outdoor wedding but hesitant to do so do to factors such as weather? Ivey Spencer is proud to open new opportunities to their outdoor event space, with the Spencer Meadows Pavilion.
This 3,300 square foot pavilion provides a rare and unique outdoor reception venue for up to 200 guests. Located in the heart of the city of London, Ivey Spencer sits on its own 32-acre manicured lawn with sweeping parkland views. Paired with a gorgeous ceremony space that showcases the historic Spencer mansion. London’s newest outdoor venue will make your event memorable and your guests feel instantly connected to the beautiful, natural surroundings. *2022 weekend dates are still available.
One Location Destination
Being able to keep as much of the day in one place cuts down on coordinating travel for both the couple and the guests. Choosing a location that is the destination for the day, all under one roof, also means less logistics for all.
Finding a facility with areas perfect for each aspect of your day is key. Photography, reception and ceremony, free parking and the best part, hotel accommodations. Yes, Ivey Spencer has all of the above.
“We often have couples who choose to share their vows alfresco in the picturesque gazebo or facing the mansion on the back lawn. Post ceremony they welcome their guests onto the patio for cocktails before the indoor or outdoor reception, ” shares Lina Merchant, Director of Sales for the Ivey Spencer Leadership Centre. “We know your wedding is more than just a day; it is the start of your new life together. We are honoured to be a part of this and give you our commitment to make your wedding unique and memorable.”

Include a Signature Cocktail for your guests. Perfect for post ceremony, during that just married photo shoot or as they arrive. Choose something that is light and will have universal appeal.
May we suggest making it special yet keeping it simple with a LOLA Blush Sparkling Rosé VQA based mimosa style beverage. Choose a juice and garnish combination that either pulls in your wedding colours or features local, in-season fresh fruit.
- Lemonade + fresh strawberry and thyme sprig
- Grapefruit + blueberries
- Mixed Berry + fresh mint
Above all else, remember that the day is about celebrating the beginning of a new chapter for both you and your families. Enjoy every minute of it!
