What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
One of our couples transformed the Wine Bar into their own personal night club for their after party. They even had signage designed so it looked like a real club! Our exposed brick Wine Bar is actually located in the original wine cellars, so is the perfect setting for a reception, after party with a DJ or band for dancing.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Versatile, spectacular, breath-taking, accessible, unique
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The grand staircase is the most popular with couples. Hanging above is a 15ft glittering chandelier that was a gift to commemorate the battle of Waterloo and lots of couples say their vows on this staircase, with their guests watching from above. It's truly spectacular. We also have a secluded garden that is perfect for photos.
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Not at a wedding that we're aware of, but we have had lots of A-list movie stars and actors in our building as we are often the backdrop to major film and TV moments, such as Mark Wahlberg, Heath Ledger, Emma Stone and the Made in Chelsea gang!
What’s your favourite canapé?
I think that has to be our classic - Braised beef cheek Wellington, apple and horseradish relish. So simple but so good!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
You can't go wrong with our luxury burgers. Who doesn't need a burger after a day and night of celebrating!
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Our venue is packed full of character and unique history. Every room has beautiful original chandeliers and James Bond author, Ian Fleming, used to drink in our Carlton Room. Our staircase and chandelier is probably the most unique feature.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
