SUPPLIER FOCUS: City Chic Sunbeam Studios in London

In Supplier Focus

We LOVE it when a new city centric wedding venue turns up in our in-box and Sunbeam Studios is not only City Chic but also impressively 'green' boasting no less than 9/10 points on our green gauge!

It may be a little off the beaten track - Barlby Road, W10 in London (my old stamping ground), but it’s got loads of elements that we adore - a unique space, blending Edwardian elegance (it’s the old Talbot car factory) with a modern aesthetic. What a combination!

A photographic studio by day - Mario Testino often shoots there - Sunbeam turns into a wedding and event venue in the evenings and at weekends.

Four amazing spaces all offer a flexible blank canvas for your glamourous wedding; the marble pillared Talbot Hall with chequerboard tile floor, lofty Main Hall, smaller Rootes Hall and the Shrewsbury Room. All spaces connect via a mezzanine with a grand staircase.

I absolutely love the whitewashed spaces with the fairy lights snaking down the grand staircase and the fact that hire of this blank canvas includes your own professional lighting team.

What’s more there’s outside space with Main and Rootes Halls opening out onto a beautiful private garden - truly an urban oasis.

Sunbeam Studios is a recommended Green Union wedding supplier. Find more venues for your big day in our Wedding Directory.
