There should be no compromise on style when choosing your wedding venue. An iconic British hotel, The Dorchester is one of the most elegant addresses in London, gracing the heart of Mayfair and overlooking London’s Hyde Park since 1981.
Throughout The Dorchester’s fabled history, it has been the perfect setting for romance. It was here that Peter Sellers, a regular of the hotel, spotted and fell head over heels for Britt Ekland. Rod Stewart first met Penny Lancaster on the Ballroom dancefloor while Stephen Webster met Guy Ritchie and Madonna in The Promenade to design their engagement ring.
Queen Elizabeth II and her family dressed at The Dorchester for her wedding in 1947 while Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark (now Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh) threw his bachelor party in one of the hotel’s Park Suites.
The Dorchester has also been a fashion muse. Mary Katrantzou silk print dress was inspired by the hotel while British fashion duo, Teatum Jones, created ‘The Dorchester’, a printed silk scarf now sold exclusively at Liberty. Amanda Wakeley, Mathew Williamson, Sonia Rykiel have all hosted fashion teas in The Promenade and Alice Temperley launched her AW collection in 2013.
With many creative spaces including the celebrated Ballroom (which can hold up to 1000 guests), a decadent cocktail bar, the theatrical Penthouse & Pavilion and the elegant Orchid Room, The Dorchester remains a favourite setting for any special occasion.
The team at The Dorchester prides themselves on creating memorable bespoke moments thanks to the legendary in-house designer florist, our award-winning food and beverage team and the unflappable events team.
