The Connaught Wedding
An elegant, red-brick Mayfair 5-star hotel awaits at The Connaught London, a luxurious, romantic wedding venue in one of the city’s most desirable addresses. Steeped in history and with contemporary art, design and world-famous service, The Connaught is a stunning venue to say, ‘I do’.
The Scene at The Connaught London
On the corner of Carlos Place in Mayfair, minutes from the famed shops of Bond Street and leafy Hyde Park sits an elegant red-brick building. It’s the Tadao Ando water feature in front of the entrance and the impeccably dressed, friendly doormen ready to greet you and your guests that gives the game away: this 200-year-old building is The Connaught, one of London’s most desirable hotels.
Inside, The Connaught London is steeped in style and history, with contemporary touches weaved through lovingly restored decades-old design. Original artwork from the likes of Damien Hirst and Barbara Hepworth is a feature throughout; the lobby’s mahogany staircase inspired Ralph Lauren to create a replica for his New York flagship store, and touches of marble and art deco features add effortless luxury.
This is a modern English wedding venue that has substance as well as style. The expert team go out of their way to give everyone who walks through their doors impeccable service, welcoming you and your guests and giving you a day you’ll never forget. Food from Michelin-starred chefs is exquisite and creative, and the stunning flexible events spaces allow you to have that extra special day you’re dreaming of. And it doesn’t start and finish with the wedding day itself, either: couples will also enjoy a two-month membership at the hotel’s Aman Spa, spa treatments before and after the wedding, and an overnight stay in one of the hotel’s plush suites.
The Connaught London Wedding Ceremonies
The Connaught London is fully licensed for weddings and civil partnerships and couples can have their pick of elegant, Guy Oliver-designed rooms. For large ceremonies, a good option is the largest space – the Mayfair Room, with a striking black and white marble entrance hall and full-length antique mirrors that create a beautiful setting. For something more intimate, consider the adjoining Maple Room with maple panelling, floor-to-ceiling windows and a blank canvas that makes it a wonderful space for filling with flowers.
For couples who would prefer to get married off-site, the beautiful Farm Street Church is just a four-minute walk away.
