Standing proud on the edge of one of London’s most cherished royal parks, the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is a sensational hotel wedding venue in an unbeatable London location. Known to be the location where the Queen learnt to dance and where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge celebrated their engagement, this luxury 5-star hotel has the royal seal of approval.
The Mandarin Oriental recently underwent a multi-million-pound refurbishment to bring all the ballrooms and event facilities up to the highest standard. From top to bottom, the renovated spaces gleam with gold leaf details, intricately carved coving and stylish interiors designed by Joyce Wang. It’s a timeless all-in-one destination where you can dine, dance and say ‘I Do’.
The hotel is home to four decadent wedding spaces that you can hire individually or together. The largest light-filled space on offer is the Ballroom, where the floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the lush lawns of Hyde Park. Its delicate colour palette of white and light blue will go with any theme and there is a wooden dance floor included for you to enjoy until 1am.
Outside, the garden terrace is a rarity in such a prestigious area of London. Your guests will be served champagne and canapes on the lawn as the wedding couple arrives from their photoshoot in Hyde Park. Only Royal family members and newlyweds are allowed through this exclusive gate entrance and the flags over the marble steps can be changed to any nationality.
