Wedding Blog Awards 2016: the venue
For couples looking to tie the knot in style, London’s five-star boutique hotel, Andaz London Liverpool Street, is the perfect place to say “I do.”
Licensed for both marriages and civil partnerships, Andaz London is an ideal wedding venue, offering a personalised service with a dedicated Wedding Manager, to ensure each couple’s special day runs seamlessly and in tune with their own personal style.
Housed in a beautiful Victorian building dating back to 1884, Andaz London Liverpool Street hotel is a 21st century masterpiece with a stunning blend of traditional and contemporary architectural features. From an intimate ceremony and reception, to a lavish and decadent celebration, Andaz hotel’s unique event spaces will provide the perfect backdrop for the bride and groom’s wedding memories.
With the magnificent setting of 1901 Ballroom now available for exclusive bookings, and a choice of five different event spaces – Fenchurch, Bishopsgate & Chancery, Great Eastern & Gallery, Andaz Studio and the Temple, every couple is sure to find a venue to suit at Andaz London Liverpool Street.
Set in what was once the Great Eastern Hotel’s original ballroom, the impressive Grade 2 listed 1901 Ballroom can be exclusively hired for up to 250. 1901 will treat the couple and their guests to an unforgettable experience of dining and dancing beneath one of London’s original stained glass domes.
The elegant Fenchurch room provides a splendid option to hold wedding and civil partnership ceremonies for up to 80 guests. With high Victorian ceilings, natural daylight and ornate detailing, it truly is an idyllic setting to start a couple’s future together.
Great Eastern & Gallery
More contemporary in style, the six storey glass atrium Gallery will provide a dramatic backdrop for the couple’s wedding reception cocktails. As guests arrive, they will be wowed by the impressive circular Rotunda, architecturally inspired by New York’s Guggenheim museum.
Following the reception, wedding guests can move effortlessly into the Great Eastern room for dinner. Comfortably seating up to 160 guests for a dinner dance – or 400 for a cocktail reception in conjunction with the Gallery – the Great Eastern room provides the ideal blank canvas to transform a couple’s dream London wedding into a reality.
The Temple is a distinctive space that will render wedding guests speechless from the moment they enter. The beautiful original Grade 1 listed marble Masonic Temple provides a breath-taking space for an intimate wedding sit down dinner for up to 30 guests, or it can host the ultimate after dinner party for up to 70 guests.
The Andaz Studio, which boasts an open plan show kitchen, will provide a sophisticated and intimate space for a unique and personalised wedding experience. Seating up to 56 guests, a special wedding dinner will be crafted in front of the couple and their guests by the hotel’s team of chefs.
Andaz London offers a personalised service throughout the lead up to every couple’s magical wedding day. From the word go, an experienced and dedicated Wedding Manager will be on hand to guide the couple through the important stages of their special day, and will tailor a bespoke package to suit each couple’s individual style.
Six weeks prior to the wedding date, the Wedding Manager and Andaz Head Chef will guide each couple through a menu tasting and selection of wines. Should they choose they can also enjoy a consultation with the hotel’s team of expert pastry chefs to design their dream wedding cake. Andaz London’s Wedding Manager can help add the finishing touch to a wedding or civil partnership with flowers and special arrangements to reflect each couple’s own personalities.
From bridal party hair and make-up, to manicures and pedicures for the big day, Andaz London Liverpool Street can work with the couple to have this arranged, all in the comfort of their hotel room. Wedding couples can even treat themselves in the lead up to the main event with Andaz Health Club made to measure massages, perfect for some pre-party relaxation and pampering.
For those couples who are superstitious, old time romantics or simply want to celebrate one last night of singledom, a room can be booked for the eve of the nuptials as the anticipation and excitement nears. For a wedding night to remember, a plush Andaz suite is included as an element of the wedding package. To share the love, a special wedding accommodation rate will be made available to all wedding guests to make the big day a weekend of celebrations.
