Fit for royalty
Palm Court at Bristol Marriott Royal Hotel is, in a word: breath-taking… If you're looking for an awe-inspiring venue with a genuine ‘wow factor' then look no further. The 150-year-old Grade II listed Victorian-style hotel is nestled in the heart of Bristol, just walking distance from Bristol Cathedral. Palm Court features magnificent three-story Bath stone walls adorned in sculptures and natural light floods the room through the stunning stained-glass ceiling. This really is a space oozing elegance, grandeur and luxury - the perfect backdrop to impress up to 120 guests.
13th Century charm
There aren't many hotels that can pride themselves on having a church on-site, but located within the 400 acres of land at St. Pierre Marriott Hotel & Country Club just outside of Chepstow, South Wales, you can find the Church of St Peter. The first mention of the church dates back to the 13th Century, although it contains both Saxon and Norman architectural features. It is now a Grade II listed building and has been lovingly restored to create the perfect location for your wedding ceremony.
Having your ceremony and reception held at the same venue helps a wedding feel seamless and what better way to celebrate your wedding than a quaint country church for your ‘I do's and a grand manor house to dance the night away with up to 200 guests?
Sun, sea and sand
Perched on the beautiful south coast is the Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel, which boasts panoramic sea views and has direct access to the golden sands of Bournemouth Beach… For those of you thinking of a beach side wedding, there's no need to look abroad when, thanks to its very own micro-climate on the southern coast, Bournemouth enjoys some of the best weather in the country.
For a truly unique wedding ceremony you can exchange vows in the open-air wedding gazebo which holds up to 60 guests and is intimately located in the manicured hotel garden and surrounded by views of the seafront. Planning to go all out with a big party after your ceremony? The stunning spaces at Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel can hold up to 220 guests, so you don't need to worry about missing anyone off your guestlist!
Set within 200 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds and accessed by an impressive sweeping driveway is the Jacobean-style Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club, located in Hertfordshire. Within, you'll find both the magnificent Poles Hall and the hidden Garden Court. Poles Hall, once the chapel of the Manor House, holds up to 180 guests and is the perfect combination of traditional charm and modern décor with its high vaulted ceilings, historic minstrel gallery and statement chandeliers. The Garden Court with its enchanting, private walled garden, is a beautiful location for up to 160 guests, creating a romantic and whimsical atmosphere which is perfect for any wedding.
Iconic London Masterpiece
The extravagant architecture of St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel London is truly exquisite: Every wall, carpet and staircase are adorned in spectacularly designed décor which creates the most decedent venue for your wedding day. The iconic Grand Staircase is at the heart of the hotel and has been featured in movies such as Batman Begins and even The Spice Girls' Wannabe music video. Its grandeur, elegance and historic design provide the perfect backdrop for photos and you can even hold a drinks reception for up to 50 people in this stunning and utterly unforgettable space. If you're looking to host more guests, there are a variety of enchanting spaces within the hotel and you can still whisk your photographer off to the Grand Staircase for those all-important snaps!
