West London has some of the very best wedding halls in the entire city, meaning you really are spoiled for choice. To help you on your way to finding the one that is right for you, we’ve highlighted the cream of the crop below.
Chelsea Old Town Hall has become a popular backdrop for filming projects, photoshoots and all manner of private and corporate receptions. Once you see it in all its splendour, it’s easy to understand why. Having been lovingly restored, this late Victorian building has retained many of its original period features, keeping its timeless beauty very much alive and making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to really make a lasting impression on their big day. With adaptable event space, a generous maximum capacity and a prime location well served by local transport links, it’s equally as practical as it is charming.
The Orangery was purpose built for the elegant soirees of Lord and Lady Holland. As such, you can expect a space that offers top quality and a true sense of luxury, whilst still being enough of a blank canvas that you can bring your own sense of style. The interior of this stone and glass palace can comfortably take up to 80 guests for a seated event, though additional space is available via a marquee in the grounds. There is even a wedding licence in place, meaning you could hold both the ceremony and the reception under one roof, maximising convenience.
The attention to detail throughout Porchester Hall is second to none, with stunning ornate features waiting to catch the eye at every glance, from the grand staircase with its bronze and wrought iron banister, to the marble walls and crystal chandeliers. Dating back to the 1920s, it is in fact Grade II listed, officially recognising and protecting its historical and cultural significance. Up to 400 guests can attend an evening of dinner and dancing in the main hall, though there are additional smaller rooms on offer if you had a more intimate gathering in mind.
Chelsea has a long-held reputation for decadence and sophistication, and The Royal Hospital certainly lives up to it. Comprised of various Grade I and Grade II listed buildings and boasting a selection of both indoor and outdoor spaces – each of them distinct in their appeal yet equally as beautiful in their finish – there are many options when it comes to holding a reception here. This adaptability makes it suitable for big and small weddings alike, for anywhere from 15 to 400 guests. The enviable location benefits from lovely views of the Thames and close proximity to transport link including Sloane Square.
Where better to make yourself feel rightfully special on your big day than somewhere as majestic and world renowned as Kensington Palace. From the tranquillity of the grounds – with its parkland, gardens and ponds – to the awe inspiring wonder of the historical interior spaces, the quality of the finish remains of the highest standard throughout. Ideal if you were hoping to escape the bustle of the city centre without sacrificing the convenience of a well-connected venue, the peace of the setting belies the fact that the nearest transport links can be reached in around 10-15 minutes.
