Dartmouth House wedding venue

One of my most favourite places to flower for a wedding is the wonderful Dartmouth House.. set in the heart of Mayfair, it has a lovely history and is currently the home of the English Speaking Union. But it is also a truly fabulous venue in which to get married

From the magnificent staircase that takes you to the first floor reception and ceremony rooms to the enclosed and private terrace, it is a stunning building that is all yours once you step over the threshold

Here is Charlotte with her bridesmaid and sister after getting married to Sean last year

The landing on the staircase is the perfect place for a welcome urn and the panelled Churchill Room is ideal for saying your vowsceremony flowers by blue sky flowers at dartmouth house

One Whitehall Place – Wedding Open Day 2012

Prospective Brides and Grooms out there will know that we are smack bang in the middle of ‘wedding fair season’! And next weekend sees the annual Spring Open Day at one of my favourite venues in central London – One Whitehall Place

Situated just off  Horseguards Parade, a stone’s throw from both Trafalgar Square and the Thames, it is right next door to the newly refurbished 5 star Royal Horseguards Hotel

One Whitehall is one of the most beautiful venues in town, with a variety of rooms for small intimate weddings and ceremonies for around 50 guests to large, grand Libraries and Suites that can host up to 250 diners seated









For the first time, there will be weddings dresses modelled during the Open Day. The wonderfully talented Naomi Neoh will have some of her new collection available for you to see in the flesh

These dresses are truly amazing and may make you rethink your choice – if you have already made one that is!

We will be dressing the Gladstone Library with some special flower displays to show you how gorgeous the venue can look and hope that you will come to see what we can do


Many rooms work with both traditional or the more contemporary styles of table dressing – there is a dedicated chair cover company able to transform any room with a flick of organza!

If you are still looking for the right venue for your big day, or are not sure you have the right one already, come along between 12pm-4pm next Sunday 4th March and take a look around this unique venue

Contact Laura, One Whitehall’s Wedding Manager who will be delighted to show you what they can do for you




Many thanks to Wild Weddings for the use of some of these shots and to Naomi Neoh for the shot from her website

Wedding Open Day

Held in the most romantic month of the year, One Whitehall Place’s Wedding Open Day is 12-4pm this Sunday 27 February, following hot on the heels of last week’s National Wedding Show at Olympia

It is a perfect opportunity to see the venue set up and dressed for a wedding. Both the Gladstone Library and the Whitehall Suite will be dressed with tables and the Whitehall Suite will also be dressed for a ceremony so you can get a great view of what your day as a Bride at One Whitehall would be like

As the neighbouring Royal Horseguards Hotel’s in house florist and preferred floral supplier to the venue, I will be on hand during the afternoon to show you what is possible for your wedding, walk around the different rooms and discuss your ideas

If you would like to book a particular time to meet on the day, do let me know and I look forward to welcoming you to one of central London’s most spectacular venues
