30 Pavilion Road
30 Pavilion Road is small gem hidden in the midst of luxurious Knightsbridge. Just a stones throw away from Harrods, this stunning classical venue boasts live fireplaces and intricate interiors.
30 Pavilion Road can host both your wedding ceremony and dinner all in one. With the benefit of having the house exclusively for your wedding day, it is built for completely exclusive, intimate and romantic affairs.
Not only having the entire house and roof terrace to yourselves, 30 Pavilion Road also provides you with full flexibility on decoration and styling. As a Wedding Designer, I know that this type of venue is rare; being able to create and decorate as you please is a huge bonus for a luxury wedding and every Wedding Designer and creative couples dreams to bring out it’s full opulent potential. Given its unique characteristics and classical charm, it is certainly one of London’s hidden gems.
Hampton Court House
Now Hampton Court House, I feel is understated, this is an absolutely stunning house for that beautiful elegant, yet rustic wedding. By weekday this venue is home to teaching and learning, yes, you read right, it is a school! But by weekend, this incredible venue transforms into a home for happy celebrations.
The reason I feel this venue is understated is that it is hiding a couple of small secret gems. One of which is the most spectacular shell encrusted grotto, perfect for the most eloquent photos of wedding couples, and to add to the romantic factor, Hampton Court House boasts the most wonderful heart-shaped lake. (Nu Bride: How lovely!)
Nestled in the London Borough of Richmond, this venue has everything from character, style, romance, elegance and opulence. Coupled with a creative array of floral designs, crystallised tableware and a handful of fun-loving guests, this has the making of a luxury venue.
Thank you so much Jessica!
Enjoy taking a moment to explore them all. They each offer something completely different. I have to say with its ridiculously chic rose gold interiors, attention to detail from staff, I will always have a soft spot for The Rosewood London!
