Claridge's in Mayfair has long been known as the ultimate luxury hotel, and its stunning weddings are nothing short of spectacular.
Whether you choose the opulent Drawing Room, one of the cosy event rooms or the vast, Art Deco ballroom, your wedding can be personalised to suit your tastes by the highly skilled staff.
"We've had the hotel transformed into everything from a surfer's paradise to a classic, rose-filled banquet hall," wedding coordinator Annabel Parkyn tells BRIDESMAGAZINE.CO.UK. "We will get as involved with the planning as the couple want us to, from planning the menu to putting them in touch with the best photographers and florists, or letting them bring in their own suppliers."
Indeed as Parkyn discusses the huge list of catering options (she recommends a delicious-sounding chocolate fondant for dessert) it becomes clear that a bride and groom getting married at Claridge's really can have whatever they want. Walking through the breathtaking event spaces I am shown an elegant dressing room where the bride can get ready with her bridesmaids, and the special entrance to the hotel through which the bride can enter on her wedding day, providing the kind of one-off special treatment every bride will thrive upon.
When hosting a wedding at Claridge's it is not only the decadent surroundings, but also the expert wedding coordinators, fantastic services and superstar treatment, that mean that however you go about planning your special day it is sure to be one to remember, and for all the right reasons.
