The Royal Connections in our Collection of Venue Partners

21.05.18

We are still basking in the afterglow of the events of Saturday 19th May 2018. No, we’re not talking about the FA Cup Final, we mean the magnificent Royal Wedding of the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

 

The day went exactly as everyone expected. The world watched as many of the biggest names on the planet descended upon Windsor in the glorious May sunshine, where the nation’s beloved Prince married his beautiful fiancé.

 

St George’s Chapel created a setting pulled straight out of a fairy tale for the televised ceremony, before the couple and their guests moved onto a day reception at St. George’s Hall and then danced the night away (we hope!) at nearby Frogmore House.

 

With the hum of Royal Wedding fever still lingering, we take a look at some of the historic venues of Royal significance that we are proud to cater at regularly.

 

Hedsor House

This majestic, Italianate-style mansion set within 100 acres of Buckinghamshire countryside was the Royal residence of Augusta the Princess of Wales. Able to accommodate up to 200 guests, the ornate building has become one of the UK’s leading wedding venues and is also a beautiful setting for weddings taking place in the winter months.

 

Kensington Palace

Kensington Palace has endless connections to the Royal Family (not least that Queen Victoria was born there), but most importantly at this particular moment is that it will be the future residence of the newlyweds! With its regal State Apartments, stunning Sunken Garden, and a beautiful new Pavilion, Kensington Palace is a venue that can truly bring that touch of modern Royal glamour to your wedding day.   

 

Tower of London

Founded over 950 years ago, the ancient fortress and World Heritage Site has served as a Royal residence and palace at various points throughout history, and visitors are able to see the Crown Jewels on display there. Only those with a connection to one of the Tower’s Yeoman Warders are able to marry at the iconic site, but it remains a breath taking venue for corporate and other private events.

 

Banqueting House

Banqueting House is the last remaining part of the Palace of Whitehall which was created by King Henry VIII. Used throughout the centuries for royal celebrations and dinners, the outside of the building was also the execution site of Charles I. The Main Hall is nothing short of spectacular, with a Rubens masterpiece adorning its ceiling and majestic columns lining the perimeter of the room. The Undercroft offers an intimate setting where guests can celebrate while taking in wonderfully atmospheric surroundings. Both the Main Hall and the Undercroft are available for ceremonies and receptions.

 

Hampton Court Palace

Another one of the Henry VIII’s remarkable residences, Hampton Court Palace boasts a variety of incredible offerings for both indoor and outdoor events throughout the palace and it’s wonderful grounds. Sitting on the banks of the River at Richmond-upon-Thames, the unmistakably-Tudor architecture can again lend a classic, regal feel to your big day.

 

Still feeling smitten by the happy couple and their beautiful wedding ceremony, we are delighted to announce that we will be offering complimentary wedding reception canapes or a premium wine upgrade package to all new and existing bookings for weddings taking place with Food by Dish between now and April 2019.
