A Perfect Mayfair Wedding Venue

We spoke to newlyweds Drew and Amy about their fabulous wedding at No.4 Hamilton Place. They tell us what they loved about the Mayfair Wedding Venue, the special touches they included that made their day unique and they also give some advice to couples who are in the throes of planning their own big day.

Love at first sight

Amy: ‘We knew it was the place for us straight away. We just got a really great feeling when we walked in, the décor was breath-taking, especially in the Argyll Room. The Terrace was also stunning – perfect for our summer wedding. It was unique to have that amount of outside space in the heart of London.’

Drew: ‘The staircase leading to the Argyll Room was my favourite space. We hadn’t seen anything else quite like it on our venue search and we knew it would make beautiful photos.’

Style and theming – A Mayfair Wedding Venue

Amy: ‘The style of our wedding was very simple, we like to call it London chic! We didn’t need to add many finishing touches or decorations as the period detail in the rooms was so beautiful. Our colour theme was gold and white which was really easy to implement, white flowers, white and gold cake – the ornate gold decorations in the Argyll Room were the perfect backdrop. Also what I loved was the fact that we didn’t need to use dreaded chair covers! The chairs the venue supplied were beautiful and fitted the style of our wedding perfectly.’

Drew: ‘The menu was perfectly tailored for us. At the tasting day we sampled a range of dishes and then we were able to take a little bit of what we liked from each. We decided to take the red wine and cherry jus from the chicken dish and put it with the five spice pork belly – it was amazing. The team at No.4 Hamilton Place were incredibly flexible and open to suggestions and changes. The food was restaurant quality and absolutely delicious. So many of our guests commented on how great it was, even the fussy eaters!’

The planning journey

Drew: ‘The team was always contactable and responded very quickly to any questions we had or changes we needed to make. We were able to alter things last-minute, for example when we had some dietary requirement changes and needed to order extra alcohol! We couldn’t have asked for better advice or help.’

Amy: ‘We cannot thank all the staff at 4HP enough. From day one they were incredibly helpful and made sure our vision became a reality.’

Special touches

Drew: ‘Although we didn’t need to do much to the venue in terms of dressing the spaces we used, we wanted to make the wedding really personal to us. We did a quiz (about us!) after dinner and also had a little book where our guests could write in during the night. It was funny to read those the next morning!’

Amy: ‘We hired red London buses to take us from the church to No.4 Hamilton Place. It was the perfect way to arrive into such a special venue in the heart of London. It linked up very nicely with the red buses we could see from the Terrace as they went past Hyde Park. My mum also made little pots of local jam as wedding favours.’

Drew: ‘The best part of the day for me was the speeches. It was so special to see everyone all in one place – laughing and crying along.’

Amy: ‘There wasn’t one stand out moment for me, but what I really loved was how well the day flowed and that Drew and I didn’t need to worry about a thing…’

Final thoughts and advice

Amy: ‘I would say to any couples getting married at No.4 Hamilton Place, don’t go crazy with the decorations, the venue doesn’t need it as it’s already so beautiful.’

Drew:  ‘Don’t feel like you have to use or fill every room in 4HP – although it’s tempting as you have exclusive use of the entire venue. Be selective and choose your favourites.’

Amy: ‘It was the perfect venue and meant that we had the perfect day. We wish we could do it all over again!’
