The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park is one of the most impressive hotel buildings in London. The red brick Victorian Gothic Mandarin Oriental has hosted endless society and aristocratic weddings over the years.

If you’re after stately home elegance in the heart of London, this is it. Enormous floral blooms, sparkling chandeliers and views fit for a Queen, backed by five star service. The floor to ceiling windows of the grand ballroom overlook Hyde Park and it even has its own private Royal entrance. Or book the black and white tiled, wooden panelled library space which can feel like a secret garden by the time the florists are finished.

Mandarin Oriental also has access to some of the most elegant and private spaces in London to host weddings including the Orangery in Kensington Palace, Kent House - a terraced Victorian house complete with sweeping staircase and chequerboard floor, a 19th century neo-gothic mansion, the Royal Cavalry Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum, for a truly unique never to forget day.

All weddings here come with your own wedding planner, and the team can advise on everything from London’s best cake makers to bespoke stationery and the focus is on world-class hospitality no matter the size of your special day.

The happy couple can retire to the Hyde Park suite or spend time in the spa which is currently being renovated. And no stay is complete without dinner in legendary chef Heston Blumenthal’s restaurant, where he has been inspired by meals taken by the long list of Kings and Queens who would have hunted and strolled in Hyde Park over the centuries.

One of the great experiences of staying at the Mandarin Oriental , is the quality of staff. The staff are just extraordinary - Helen Mirren
