Do I need security at my wedding?

People hire wedding security guards for a number of reasons, it may not be primarily to prevent theft, but also to prevent tresspass, breach of the peace, altercations, or damage to property. Your venue might also insist on you having security for insurance reasons; to prevent damage to furniture, fixtures and fittings.

Some of the most common reasons we are asked to provide security for weddings include; stalking or threats of violence and disruption from a jealous ex-partner/friend or colleague. Feuding families or friends, and unruly guests. Prevention of gatecrashers and theft of expensive property and gifts. Or simply for general peace of mind; all of our security guards are also trained in first-aid, customer service, conflict management, and physical intervention. Another quality that helps us stand out for all the right reasons above our competitors.

If you’re thinking, or even contemplating hiring security for your wedding, it probably means you need it. Remember, prevention is better than cure!

Read what one of our recent brides has to say about our service:


“I was thinking about hiring security for my wedding day as an ex had found out everything and promised to spoil my day, I searched ‘wedding security’ on Google and came across Westminster Security. After speaking with them, a huge weight was lifted from me, they were very professional and informative about the whole process. I was now looking forward, rather than worrying.

On the day, I couldn’t have asked for anything more, they really made me feel safe and special, even providing plasters for my heals! All of my guests complimented their smart appearance, friendliness and all round professionalism. Calling them was my best decision, I only wish I had called them earlier.”

Thank you so much for everything you did, I can’t thank you guys enough. – Emma, London.

Wedding security guards in London

Westminster Security can provide a discreet or high visibility wedding security service, even a combination of the two. Including; undercover guests who will blend in unobtrusively, or smartly uniformed security guards who can meet and greet; providing a friendly point of contact for your guests, whilst ensuring no undesirables gain entry to your ceremony or reception venues.

Security at your wedding ceremony

Our wedding security guards will arrive well before any guests to conduct thorough searches of the venue and grounds, making sure no undesirables are lay in wait for your arrival. We will clear and secure the venue, controlling access by way of checking a guest list or wedding invites at the gate or door.

Upon your arrival, we will control your drop-off point making sure no undesirables spoil your arrival, escorting you discreetly to your ceremony entrance. Effectively providing ‘close protection‘, without getting in the photographer’s way. Once you are inside, we will control all access points and conduct regular patrols of the grounds. At least one security guard, usually an undercover guest, will remain inside the venue giving internal cover and communicating with the security team outside.

During your photographs, we will continue our security procedures and presence being careful not to appear in / or disrupt any pictures. On your departure to your reception, we will discreetly escort you to your wedding car – this is where the undercover guest comes in handy again.

Security at your wedding reception

Wedding Security

Same as your wedding ceremony venue, your wedding security guards will arrive well before any guests to liaise with staff and conduct searches. They will control access to the venue, and meet your guests at the main entrance to check invites or your guest list. The security guards will also be on hand to assist in directions to the toilets, cloakroom and more importantly, the bar!

Again, upon your arrival the security guards will discreetly control the area, providing a safe environment for you to exit the car and make your way to your guests for your big arrival. This may all sound very daunting and intrusive, but everything is done so discreetly that you won’t even know we are there, other than the feeling of safety and peace of mind.

During your wedding breakfast, we will continue to control the access points and patrol the grounds, keeping a watchful eye over your guests’ cars. As your evening guests start to arrive, we will greet them checking their invite or names and point them in your direction. Most guests will never even know we are security unless you choose to have high visibility security, then we will equip your wedding security guards with hi-vis security vests or jackets.

Your wedding gifts from guests can run into the many thousands of pounds worth, during the evening we can guard them, even log them, store them and deliver them to you the next day or on your return from your honeymoon.

At the end of the evening, we can assist in booking taxis for your guests. We will search the venue for lost property and try to return it to its rightful owner on the night, failing that it will be handed into the venue management for safekeeping.

If you are staying somewhere other than your reception venue, we can securely transport you there with one of our security chauffeurs, maintaining your safety right until the end of the night.
