One of the most famous venues in London, and recognised around the world, Claridge’s is an art deco hotel which finds its home at the centre of Mayfair. The hotel boasts numerous elegant private event rooms, many of which are suited to wedding and civil partnership ceremonies, as well as receptions.
Your wedding day is one of them most important days of your life, so why not give it the sense of occasion it deserves with a legendary venue like Claridge’s? Although the hotel can cater to wedding celebrations of all sizes, Claridge’s is particularly good for large-scale ceremonies. For guest lists of 60 and above, the hotel will offer you and your beloved a complimentary suite for the night, as well as rooms with special rates for your guests.

For larger parties, opt for the ultra-glamorous Ballroom, which can seat up to 500 guests and has a history of hosting society weddings, state banquets and stunning balls.
