The Royal Lancaster is another gorgeous 5-star hotel on the other side of the park, with large ballrooms and views of the sprawling Serpentine lake. 

     

    Closer to Buckingham Palace, there are several classical wedding venues just a stroll away from St James’ Park. 116 Pall Mall and Sofitel London St James promise quintessential London architecture, refined interiors, and spacious function rooms. 116 Pall Mall even features a terrace called the Waterloo East Garden that you can privately hire for outdoor receptions.
