116 Pall Mall makes for a memorable, unforgettable wedding venue, captivating your guests with its opulent decor, magnificent original features, period charm and unique heritage. Originally designed by John Nash, the 19th-century architect behind the Brighton Pavilion and Marble Arch, 116 Pall Mall (home of the Institute of Directors) was opened in 1828 for the United Service Club. As the property is owned by the Crown Estate, the rich history of the venue can be sensed in every room through its astounding collection of fine artwork. From the moment your guests enter, they’ll be welcomed by stunning Georgian architecture.
The Grand Staircase and Balcony, a reflection of the building’s grandeur, is licensed for civil ceremonies. This alternative ceremony space has seen many couples marry on its sweeping steps. With spectacular boundless lines, gilded banisters, statues and paintings, its a spectacular space to say 'I do'. The 15ft handmade Regency chandelier sparkles above, a gift from George IV to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo.
The Nash is the grandest function room in the building, a popular choice for larger weddings. The bright airy room, complete with floor to ceiling windows, a 20ft ceiling, stunning feature chandelier and period artwork, really has the wow factor. Luxurious in style and steeped in grandeur, it comfortably welcomes up to 250 dining. Even better, the room is fully licensed until 3am!
The Waterloo is a stunning double aspect room overlooking Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. Filled with natural daylight and traditional Georgian charm, the room is often used for a drinks reception in conjunction with the adjoining Nash. If used as a standalone event space, it can host up to 80 dining.
The Carlton, 116 Pall Mall’s historic smoking room, is an elegant space that welcomes up to 150 seated. The room is adorned with many rich decorative features including dramatic Ionic columns in the centre of the room. The south facing doors open onto the Terrace & Waterloo East Garden. This hidden gem provides the ideal area for alfresco entertaining. Enveloped by trees and lush greenery, it provides the perfect backdrops for your treasured wedding photographs. With summer cocktails, vintage garden games and delicious BBQ food, your guests can enjoy the sun in tranquil green surroundings – a rarity in central London. To really make the event your own, choose from package upgrades including a gin and tonic station, evening band, an ice-cream bike and much more!
In recent years Downton Abbey has been filmed on-site, as have scenes in The Dark Knight, Gandhi and Foyle’s War. 116 Pall Mall has also welcomed luminaries such as Paul McCartney, James Bond author Ian Fleming and Duke of Wellington, to name but a few, adding a touch of extra sparkle to this already prestigious venue.
