So glad we chose to go with London Town for our ceremony and reception. I more feel like this place chose us. As soon as we walked onto the property, my husband and I both knew this is where we were going to get married. It's an absolutely beautiful and perfect setting; on the water, historical, and plenty of gardens. It's a little bit of everything which made for some incredible photos! Affordable venue with a friendly, helpful, and accommodating staff.

This is the perfect place for me to holding a reception dinner for the wedding! All my friends and family loved this place and ask me where I found it. We had the wedding on 3/28/2015, since this was the winter season and the price was very reasonable and definitely under our budget! Especially my mother-in-law was very impressive on it! I will absolutely recommend it to my friends in the future!

Finding a wedding venue is one of the most difficult parts of planning a wedding, but my husband and I knew we found our place when we found London Town. It is an absolutely beautiful location, surrounded with countless places to take photos. We were able to do our first dance on the deck at the water, and I'm dying to see the photos.
In addition to being such a beautiful venue, you also get an amazing bang for your buck. All tables and chairs are included for both the ceremony and reception. The tent and indoor facility are great features and also serve as a built-in rain plan if need be. We held our cocktail hour in the gardens, and guests were able to play yard games and socialize by the water. It is truly a unique venue in that there are both indoor and outdoor options for guests.
The staff was also great to work with. Adriana is incredibly friendly and also responsive to questions. They offer fantastic vendor recommendations--we barely left their lists of recommendations, and we loved all of our vendors. They also allow you to hold your rehearsal on site, which was incredibly helpful to us and our wedding party going into the wedding.
If you're looking for a breathtakingly beautiful, affordable and fun location for your wedding, London Town is definitely where you want to be!

When we first started thinking about wedding venues, Londontown was at the forefront. After one visit to the grounds and a long conversation with Jean, we immediately booked it. Fast forward one year and one new wedding planner (Adrianna), our day was perfect. The grounds provided us with so much flexibility for the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. It also offered amazing little nooks and crannies that made our photos breathtaking, such as the dock on the inlet, the gazebo, the colonial house, and the little bridge tucked away back in the woods.

We were worried the day before that our wedding would be a wash-out after three days of heavy rain, but Adrianna calmed our nerves at the rehearsal and told us she would wait as long as possible to set up the lawn for our ceremony. When we pulled in for the wedding, we were overjoyed to see the lawn staged perfectly for our ceremony. What followed was an unforgettable evening, and Adrianna ensured everything went smoothly behind the scenes, staying on site long after she really needed to.

Londontown was everything we were looking for and our day was perfect. When Jean had to leave, she left Londontown's event planning in very capable hands. Amazing place for an amazing wedding.

We held our reception at London Town and Gardens. When we went to visit the site the year before we knew right away it was perfect. The gorgeous gardens, the view of the water, the beautiful tent, the pavilion for dancing (and excellent rain plan if needed). Reserve your date early because options were getting limited even a year out. Our wedding day turned out to have perfect weather and the cocktail hour was held in the gardens. It was so gorgeous and I couldn't have asked for a more fun wedding. We had 120 guests and the venue was a great size. Jean Clare Shea, the director of sales was very professional and offered many helpful hints to make everything run smoothly. We opted to rent shuttles to get any guests that didn't want to drive to and from the hotel and we were happy with that decision. Overall, London Town is a wonderful venue for a wedding reception!!

My husband and I visited quite a few venues in and around Annapolis for our wedding last September, and Historic London Town and Gardens was definitely the best "bang for our buck". Once we visited the location we fell in love with the location - you get a fabulous view, an indoor pavilion, draped tent w/ chandelier, ceremony and reception chairs and tables and the dock. When you start budgeting out tents, etc. things get expensive fast, so it was nice to know we were covered at London Town if it rained. The pavilion was great, it was super hot on our wedding day and dancing in the air conditioned pavilion helped keep everyone nice and cool. They also allowed us to leave cars there overnight which was nice.

Leading up to our wedding we worked with Adriana and she was wonderful! She made sure that they had everything the way we wanted it on our big day. She was great for recommendations when I wasn't sure if something was going to work and quick to come up with a solution. She also got along and worked well with my day of coordinator on our wedding day.

The actual day went great! We couldn't have asked for a better space. The gardens and dock made great backdrops for our photos and all of our guests loved the property. The only thing I could complain about was the noise ordinance - you have to shut music off by 10pm so you can't really extend your reception at this venue past then. I will say this is a problem at most outdoor locations around Annapolis. We opted to start our wedding a half hour earlier to allow for the full 5 hour cocktail hour and reception.

I would definitely recommend Historic London Town and Gardens for your wedding. You'll have a great staff, fabulous scenery and a place to keep you dry and cool in case of crazy weather.

I remember in the early stages of wedding planning coming across a wedding photography blog that featured a wedding recently held at London Town. As soon as I saw the pictures I thought- that is where I want to have my wedding! London Town offers every kind of setting a bride would want- you have the gardens, the water, historic charm, and a modern indoor pavilion. Jean and Adriana were an incredible team to work with- they kept me organized, were very responsive to email, and were flexible with me as I had to plan the wedding across the country from Seattle.

The day of my wedding there was a 40% chance of rain. While I'm assuming most venues would just tell me "sorry, you have to move the ceremony inside," Adriana allowed me to risk the chance of rain and have my ceremony outside. Even when it started to rain 5 minutes before the wedding was meant to start, they let us wait it out and we were able to do everything as planned- one of the truly awesome things about this venue and team.

The day of the wedding went so smoothly and the venue was beautiful- I cannot imagine having my wedding anywhere else.

Thank you London Town!

Beautiful venue right on the water with great gardens. Lots of areas for photos. Saved lots of money by getting a one-day liquor license and bringing my own beer/wine. Jean, the director of sales, was wonderful- she had lots of suggestions on trusted caterers and other vendors. She simply managed to make things happen- for instance, she called ~5 days before suggesting that we get heaters and she simply took care of it and the cost came out of our security deposit (with our approval, of course). Thank you.
