You can't get closer to a royal wedding than Kensington Palace, the home of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The entire palace is lustrous and stately, and even has some modern touches, such as the futuristic luminous lace sculpture in the Entrance Hall. The licensed Orangery, however, is more classical. Built as a summer supper-house, it's light-filled and lined with columns, the perfect place to say 'I do'. The Sunken Garden is yours for pre- dinner drinks, and they'll even let you pop a marquee in the garden, if you want to.

Ceremony capacity: 150
