Feeling inspired by Netflix’s latest hit? You’re not the only one! The first lockdown took us to the zoo with the Tiger King, the second to Buckingham Palace for the latest series of The Crown and the third has whisked us down the Mall to Regency London, through the stories, characters and costumes of Netflix’s Bridgerton. We’ve all been inspired to add a bit of Bridgerton bling to our everyday lives and what better excuse to go over-the-top than your wedding? The team at 116 take a look at how can you bring a touch of Bridgerton’s grandeur and elegance to your big day…
BRINGING THE BRIDGERTON SET TO LIFE
Sitting just a mile from Grosvenor Square, the London home of the Bridgerton and Featherington families in the series, 116 Pall Mall is also a short walk – or horse and carriage ride, if we’re staying on theme – from Buckingham Palace, adding yet another touch of regality to your special day. Within close distance to major stations and central London hotels, you and your guests won’t need to travel far to continue your revelry after the ceremony.
REGENCY ROMANCE AT 116 PALL MALL
Built at the end of the Regency era in 1826, the beautiful 116 Pall Mall was designed by celebrated architect John Nash – who did such a wonderful job we even named a ballroom after him! Also responsible for the designs of Brighton Pavilion and Marble Arch, Nash brought authentic Bridgerton glamour and romance to the building at 116 Pall Mall, with sweeping staircases, elaborate balconies and chandeliers – the most spectacular of which hangs above our grand staircase, a 15ft original Regency fitting that on your wedding day is reduced to being the second most beautiful thing in the building
A HELPING HAND FROM A PALACE PROFESSIONAL
We think our whole team deserve a crown, but Martin Dibben, General Manager for Benugo here at 116 Pall Mall, has got closer than any of us to making that a reality. Martin began his career working for the Royal Household at Buckingham Palace, ensuring every knife, fork and glass was in the right place and all manners, uniforms and attitudes were tip-top. His experience is in such demand that he is often found on the set of film and tv productions, providing accurate etiquette guidance to the actors and crew. So not only will your wedding be held in an authentic Regency setting, you’ll have genuine Royal guidance for your ceremony and dining!
DINING FIT FOR A DUKE
From intimate breakfast settings to a banquet fit for the Duke of Hastings, our dining packages can be customised to the size, tastes and dietary requirements of your party – no matter how grand or royal! So whether you’re looking to add a touch of Regency elegance to your celebration through our beautiful art, architecture and fittings, or dream of hosting your own high society ball complete with music, flowers and historical fashion, our dedicated team are on hand to arrange a wedding fit for the big screen.
As we look forward to the year ahead, we’re celebrating our favourite good deeds from venues across Westminster who have been helping others and offering their time, resources and generosity throughout the pandemic.
