    When it comes to your big day, we know you’ve searched extensively for your perfect wedding venue – but does it fit in with your budget? When you read about how much the average wedding costs, it’s easy to feel like your options are slim – but there’s now an online calculator that can show you the average cost of getting married somewhere…

    And yes, London is £17K more expensive than the national average. (Gulp.)

    What does that take into consideration? Catering, music, floristry, venue hire, planning, stylists, make-up, beauty, photography, videography and baking services – so yeah, pretty much everything. You can even put in all of your key factors like how many guests you’ll have, if you’ll have extras like a photo booth (which, come on, you will), etc.
