Are you looking for a wedding venue in London? Are you looking for a swanky establishment in the heart of swanky Mayfair? Well, I think I have found the perfect venue for your big day!
The Lansdowne Club was the venue for a couple of my dear close friends who decided to tie the knot over the festive period. The now newlyweds Richard and Alison decided to exchange their nuptials at the Grade II-listed venue in London’s West End, which is as beautiful as you’d expect from such an old and historic building filled with striking 18th century grandeur.
The club was built in 1761 as the home for Prime Minister Lord Bute. The building received famous visits during the 18th century from the likes of Lord Byron, Charles Dickens and Thomas Moore. Actually, even today the club’s members include the likes of Richard Dimbleby, Lloyd Grossman and designer Paul Smith as members. It appears that time hasn’t reduced the building’s ability to attract some of London’s biggest movers and shakers.
The ballroom was used for the elegant wedding reception, and guests could get air in the courtyard and winter garden if they became overwhelmed by the occasion. The food was also delightful and was greatly received by our taste buds. My partner was also rather taken by the floral arrangements and table arrangements, but being male this only caused casual admiration on my behalf, rather than her rather unnecessary gasps and fawning.
In conclusion, I would highly recommend using The Lansdowne Club if you are an admirer of great architecture and old school swank. Who knew that history could be so much fun?!
