Claridge's : A Luxury Wedding Venue in London March 08, 2017 12:24
Claridge’s is the epitome of luxury, timeless elegance and style. With its iconic modern Art Deco interior, it has been not only a favourite home from home to royalty, Hollywood stars and celebrities for decades, but also a top London wedding venue in the heart of Mayfair.
Whether you choose Claridge’s as your wedding venue for an intimate wedding of 20 guests, or a large celebration with 240, your special day will certainly be one to remember. From choosing your own exquisite wedding menu developed by award-winning executive chef Martyn Nail using the finest ingredients, to your first dance choreography with Claridge’s first-ever choreographer-in-residence Marius Caluser, Claridge’s will be there every step of the way.
There are many spaces to choose from for your special day, and we will be starting in the grand Ballroom, my favourite room of all...
With its own dedicated entrance on Brook Street, your guests will firstly make their way to the Claridge's Ballroom Reception. This area would be ideal for an escort card table for your guests, or your table plan. They would then follow on to the Ballroom, with its beautiful hand engraved mirrors, Platinum leaf covered pillars and Art Deco fan design carpet. Designed by Guy Oliver, the room links back to original 1920’s decor, and offers the epitome of Art Deco style.
The English Heritage listed Ballroom can accommodate up to 240 guests, and your personal events manager and dedicated events team will be on hand to ensure your vision comes to life with the upmost quality and care. From a styling perspective, there are many possibilities for a Claridge’s Ballroom wedding, and the space allows many colour themes to work without being overwhelmed, whether it’s classic white, light colours such as blush pinks, or bold colours such as navy.
The drawing room is a beautifully proportioned space and full of natural daylight perfect for your wedding photography. With beautiful coving details, an original marble mantelpiece, two open fireplaces, and Art Deco iron work tassels, the Claridge’s Drawing Room has a truly 18th century classical style. This room can also be linked to the French Salon to form a larger space for entertaining.
Whether used in conjunction with The Drawing Room or on its own for a more intimate wedding celebration, the Claridge's French Salon is another room with original Art Deco features. Featuring winged Renaissance-style cherubs above the doors, the room also features a striking mural of a dancing couple, discovered when the room was being refurbished. The original marble mantelpiece could be styled beautifully on your special day.
For larger celebrations, the French Salon can be used for your drinks reception. Your guests can enjoy the ambience of the French Salon whilst enjoying canapés and cocktails, before heading next door to The Drawing Room to continue with your wedding breakfast. This area would be perfect to display your table plan or escort cards.
The wooden decoration within this room will provide a beautiful backdrop to any colour theme, with the gold detailing adding a chic touch.
The sixth floor gives the choice of four smaller rooms, perfect for intimate weddings; The Clarence, The Boardroom, The Kensington Room, and St James Room. The Clarence is an elegant space served by its own reception area and cloakroom, and can accommodate up to 50 guests. The adjoining St James room can be used as a breakout area. With stunning views over London, The Clarence is perfect for couples looking for a stylish, spacious and airy space for an intimate wedding.
Other aspects of your wedding day such as your wedding photographer, cake designer, florist and wedding invitations and stationery can all be recommended to you by the dedicated events team, ensuring you have assistance with any part of your day.
