The Dorchester defines its destination, and each day it opens its doors to discerning travellers from around the world. The hotel has seen some of the most memorable events in history, and hosting yours will add to its ever-evolving legacy.

Set in a tranquil haven between buzzy Bond Street, elegant Mayfair and prestigious Park Lane, The Dorchester is a seamless blend of its beautiful surroundings and the glamorous high society guests that enter its handsome hallways. The Dorchester’s international acclaim has made it an epicentre of luxury hospitality, and every wedding booked here is immersed in the grandeur of its rich heritage.

The primary Art Deco ballroom is a fluid open plan space with its own exclusive entrance. Inside, the wall pilasters are constructed from semi precious blue stones, which subtly hint at the traditional inclusion of ‘something blue’ on your wedding day. The crystal cage chandeliers add to the romantic feel of the room, causing light to dance across the antique mirror panelling. So, if you’re looking for a spectacular central hotel ballroom to celebrate your nuptials, The Dorchester certainly makes an impression.

For smaller weddings of up to 60 seated guests, the Holford Room is a warm and relaxed room with a traditional fireplace and oak panelled rooms. Connected to this suite and the ballroom is the Orchid room, a light and airy 18th century style space for up to 250 seated guests. The final pair of function rooms are the Crystal and Park Suites, the latter of which was famously the setting for Prince Philip’s stag do. Both boast ambient lighting and brilliant views over Hyde Park to entertain your guests, but whichever rooms you opt for, there’s enough space in The Dorchester to host all sections of your wedding day in one place.

We recently hosted our wedding party at the Dorchester. 'Perfection just happens' is the Dorchester Collection's tag line. Although you must be aware there are many people working behind the scenes to deliver it, the hotel does a fantastic job of making you forget. Although we were one of three events happening that day, and two of many guests staying, the team made us feel as if we were the only ones they were attending to. We have stayed in some wonderful hotels, yet is something we find to be truly rare in hospitality. The event spaces (we were in the Holford and Orchid rooms, however, this goes for all spaces) are stunning. As you would expect, they are maintained to an exceptionally high standard. I must have looked at over 20 possible event spaces in London, and The Dorchester had by far some of the most beautiful. With the wonderful team working there, I do not think you will go wrong!
