Planning a Luxury Wedding in London

If you are looking to plan a luxury wedding in the city of London, which is home to many of the most beautiful historic and iconic venues in the world, then we’ve curated a guide of how to plan the perfect luxury wedding in London.
First and foremost, you need to find a venue that will create an unforgettable wow factor for your guests. A venue that differentiates itself from others with stunning architecture inside and out.

Let’s start with a few of the options:

The Corinthia offers Victorian opulence and luxurious glamour within its wedding walls and hosts some of the finest weddings for couples from all over the world. This stunning hotel offers a Ballroom space with ornate high ceilings and natural light flowing in from the floor to ceiling windows.

For those who are looking to make a grand city entrance then the Dorchester may be the venue for you. It offers a magnificent banqueting room with its own entrance off Park Lane. You can even holder your reception drinks in The Gold Room with it’s crystal chandeliers and white gold leaf ceiling.

If you want to feel like royalty and are having 50 guests or less then the Royal Suite within the Savoy may be the place for you. The space can accommodate a civil ceremony, cocktail reception and private dinner with spectacular views of the Thames. It also offers a grand ballroom for those with more than 50 guests.

If you are looking for luxury with contemporary vibes, the Hotel Café Royal is a stunning historical venue on the outside that focuses on modern grandeur inside. Within the venue is a Grade listed ballroom. At the far end of this room are large double doors that can be opened up on to a terrace with panoramic views of Regent Street.

Once you have chosen your iconic lavish London venue you can start putting together the details that make the big difference.

Flowers are a good place to start and in my opinion, the more you have the better. When it comes to the ceremony you could have an impressive river of flowers leading you the entire way down the aisle. Decorate your dining tables with either one large main flower arrangement per table, flowing florals across the entire length or lots of mini arrangements. You can be extravagant with beautiful colours and the type of flowers you use to impress your guests.

 

Cake
Bring luxury to your wedding cake with many different decadent designs. Ranging from ganache and buttercream to dreamy lace cakes, there is something for everyone. You can add such a luxurious feel to your edible masterpiece with different textures of icing, colours, heights and flavours.

Now for the small finishing touches to bring luxury to your London wedding. Bring textures to your table with a delicate silk runner or even silk ribbon around your guest’s menus. Personalise all your stationery and wear that opulent Caroline Castigliano gown you have been dreaming of.
