understands how important every aspect of your day is. How this is your one opportunity to bring your nearest and dearest together to celebrate your commitment to each other. The team want to help you delight your guests from an aesthetic perspective, whilst giving you total peace of mind knowing your day will run smoothly.
One Aldwych’s dedicated Events Team will be on hand to guide you through every step of your wedding planning journey, from choosing the perfect ceremony spot to arranging a reception to suit both of your personalities and everything in-between; making for One Perfect Wedding. Our Venue
Occupying one of London’s stand-out addresses in the heart of Covent Garden, One Aldwych’s Grade II listed triangular building has long been recognised for its blend of Edwardian grandeur and Parisian elegance. The newly refurbished interiors are richly layered, sophisticated, and modern, creating an inspiring, warming atmosphere that both you and your guests will love. The hotel interiors reflect the style of a smart residence and the best of British design, with every detail carefully considered and finished to the highest quality.
For romantic weddings with up to 110 guests, One Aldwych is the perfect place for your special day. On a smaller scale, intimate weddings with 15 guests feel just right in one of the hotel’s stunning suites.
For civil weddings and partnerships, the closest registry office is The Old Marylebone Town Hall. Alternatively, One Aldwych is licensed to hold ceremonies within the hotel with an array of fabulous rooms to choose from. A top recommendation for small, intimate weddings are the luxurious suites with views overlooking Waterloo Bridge – a spectacular backdrop for an urban wedding.
If your heart is set on a church wedding, One Aldwych is just a short walk from St Paul’s Church, known affectionately as the Actors’ Church, and St Martin in the Fields, although you will need to speak to the parish to check whether you fulfill the requirements to marry in either of these churches.
For your reception, One Aldwych’s versatile private rooms and dining spaces are sure to delight you. These charming spaces ooze character, with lots of natural daylight and views onto the dynamic backdrop of London life. Throughout the hotel, beautiful pieces of contemporary art and sculptures are on display – a talking point for your guests!
For something a little different, Eneko Basque Kitchen & Bar is the modern Basque restaurant from three Michelin-starred chef Eneko Atxa. With playful dishes and decadent desserts, the restaurant showcases a fresh and innovative take on traditional Basque cuisine from northern Spain. The dramatic space can accommodate up to 110 seated guests and has its own private entrance.
Wedding flowers help to distinguish your own style. Award-winning, in-house florist, Mark Siredzuk will be on-hand to listen to your wishes and create stunning floral arrangements, buttonholes, corsages, and, of course, a beautiful bridal bouquet.
Working together, One Aldwych’s talented team of chefs will create a delicious wedding breakfast feast using the finest seasonal ingredients sourced from local suppliers. Choose from a bespoke menu of your favourite dishes, curated with the chef, or offer your guests the freedom of ordering from a selected à la carte menu on the day. To satisfy all needs, the menu can even be entirely gluten and dairy-free, from the hotel’s Coeliac UK accredited restaurant, Indigo. The One Aldwych front-of-house team will be on hand to ensure wine pairings are on point, and that a good time is had by all.
There is an array of other enhancements available to give your wedding a stand-out and reflect your personalities. From private screenings in the cinema room, the night before to cheese courses, a personalised wedding cake to tableside cocktail demonstrations from One Aldwych’s award-winning mixologists, the hotel’s Events Team are in the know and there to help with your every requirement.
The Wedding Night
As your day draws to a close, take the time to stroll over to Waterloo Bridge for photographs against the city skyline, before a relaxing evening in one of the award-winning signature suites. The next day, enjoy the thrill of waking up in Covent Garden as a married couple with a Champagne breakfast delivered to your door, allowing you to reminisce on your One Perfect Wedding in true style.
