Hip music and arts venue the Village Underground is set to host its first wedding next year.

The Shoreditch spot, famed for having two bits of a Tube train on its roof, has had a licence for a few years and hosted receptions, but never the official ceremony.

But staff member Laura Killeen told the Gazette that’s set to change next year, providing Hackney Council renews its licence which is set to expire in March.

“It’s booked – it’s going to happen,” she said. “We hope it will happen more often now. The more the merrier.”

Laura said the receptions are often quite eccentric and the venue is often booked by people who go to club nights at the venue.

“Most couples go onto the roof for the wedding photos with the carriage,” she said. “It’s so incredibly London with a view of the skyline as well as the carriage.”
