Case History 5

The Orangery, Holland Park plays host to a summer wedding for 100 guests

Our client wanted a beautiful venue with an outdoor drinks area to be the perfect backdrop to their summer wedding. We recommended The Orangery in Holland Park- a tranquil and elegant room flooded with natural light. Formerly the summer ballroom of the fourth Lord Holland, this prestigious venue is available to hire for corporate and private events and holds a civil wedding license. This historic glass building is where the bride and groom held their civil ceremony followed by their champagne and pimms reception on the lawns outside overlooking the beautiful rose gardens and fountain. While guests were mingling outside the Orangery, inside was transformed into a perfect setting for the formal wedding breakfast.

This stunning venue was filled with fresh summer foliage and beautifully smelling flowers allowing the elegant gardens of Holland Park to flow inside the venue.
