Red Carnation Hotels

Excellent international travel connections and a wealth of beautiful venues make London the perfect choice when it comes to organising an event. Whether it’s a milestone family occasion or a crucial business meeting, Red Carnation Hotels’ London hotels offer a variety of function rooms, all equipped with exceptional facilities and a dedicated team of staff to take care of every need. Here, we take a look at the capital’s smartest venues and present some suggestions for planning an event in London.

Hosting intimate nuptials

The micro wedding is on the rise, with many couples choosing to limit their guestlist to 50 or fewer. Tie the knot in an intimate ceremony, attended by your most cherished loved ones, and enjoy an entirely bespoke celebration. A first-rate hotelier that goes above and beyond to exceed the expectations of each guest, Red Carnation Hotels has been hosting weddings, both large and small, for years.

“There’s nothing more important than spending quality time with close family and friends on the big day. The couple get to enjoy ample time with their guests and each other when getting married at The Milestone,” says Andrew Pike, General Manager at The Milestone Hotel & Residences. “Set within the original chapel of our Victorian mansion house hotel, The Oratory is blessed with natural daylight pouring in through its Victorian leaded windows and beautifully finished with arches of gypsophila and bespoke floral arrangements. One of the smallest wedding venues in London, The Oratory is ideal for intimate occasions and can seat up to eight guests.”

Similarly, The Egerton House Hotel’s Dining Room can cater for up to 16 wedding guests, with considerate service, carefully tailored menus and personalised touches that make your big day extra special. Pets are welcome to attend.

The perfect corporate party

When seeking out a great location for a corporate launch or party, look no further than The Montague on the Gardens. Whatever the season, the Bloomsbury hotel’s immersive pop-ups are ideal. A lively beach bar come summer or a cosy ski lodge in the colder months, it’s an atmospheric setting for a celebration. Elsewhere, The Chesterfield Mayfair’s elegant, marble-floored Conservatory supplies the setting for an enchanting cocktail evening. Raise a glass to the perfectly planned London event, and enjoy.
