For the first time in it’s history, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Swan, Shakespeare’s Globe, is opening its doors to invite couples to exchange their wedding vows in its stunning candlelit interior, beneath ornately painted ceiling and carved balconies.

Mirroring the architecture of the first indoor theatres in the 17th century, the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse is an intimate space, illuminated solely by candlelight, and a truly unique location for wedding ceremonies. The perfect setting for any Shakespeare fan, this historic venue will only be available to book for a maximum of three wedding ceremonies a year – making it one of the most original and exclusive venues in which to host your wedding in London.
