Marrying in London and want to do it in style? It's hard to imagine a more memorable wedding venue than The Dorchester. Located on Mayfair's Park Lane, in the heart of the capital, The Dorchester is one of the city's grandest, most stylish and most desirable hotels - the celeb haunt attracts the likes of Kate Moss, Sir Philip Green, and Lily Allen, who call it their home from home. Its stunning rooms and legendary glamour, not to mention excellent service, anticipates your every whim.
Whether you are planning a small, intimate wedding party or a larger, more formal affair, The Dorchester can accommodate from a minimum of 120 guests for dinner and dancing to a maximum of 250 people for cocktails. Choose from the recently refurbished grand Park Suite, decorated in earthy, neutral tones (to hire from £1,000); and the art deco Crystal Suite which consists of blues, gold and, as the name says, plenty of crystal (to hire from £1,250). Both have stunning views of Hyde Park.
As the icing on the cake, The Dorchester has a wedding specialist who can offer support with your planning and expert knowledge. Couples can also benefit from the hotel's team of experts such as the head of wines, leading chefs and its fabulous in-house florist.
On the catering front, expect to pay £55 per person for the lunch menu; £65 per person for dinner; and £30 for 12 canapés per person or £18 for six canapés per person. Wine is £32 per bottle and champagne is £63 per bottle.
Entertainment wise, couples can bring their own band or entertainment, although, if you'd rather leave it to the professionals, the hotel's events managers are on hand to put together a bespoke experience for you.
