Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is offering soon-to-wed couples dancing lessons with Strictly Come Dancing's Izabela Rai.

The Mandarin Oriental's 24-carat gilded ballroom is historic: The Queen and her sister, Princess Margaret, learned to ballroom dance here - and now you and your groom-to-be can too!

TOP WEDDING VENUE: MANDARIN ORIENTAL

Izabela Rai, more popularly known as Brendan Cole's dance partner on the BBC television programme Strictly Come Dancing, has teamed up with the prestigious London hotel to offer couples the opportunity to master their first-dance when they book their wedding at the Knightsbridge venue.

Through three private lessons with Izabela herself, you and your groom-to-be can learn a dance of your choice - from a timeless Waltz to a fun Foxtrot or something a bit more dramatic (a spectacular lift finale, anyone?)

The dance classes form part of Mandarin's new 2013 wedding package, which starts from £21,000 for 120 people.
