Call me a romantic (or a bit geeky… either will do) but I’ve always had a fascination with that wonderful golden age of railways: the enchantment of travel, tearful goodbyes, joyful reunions… and the awe-inspiring gothic architecture that just blows you away.
And encapsulating all of this is the devastatingly impressive St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel. I attended a beautiful Jewish wedding there, not long after its refurbishment (a dizzying £150 million was spent on the makeover!) — and was bowled over by its seductive mix of grandeur and contemporary chic.
Getting married here is nothing like your traditional hotel wedding. For a start, you can see the Eurostar from the bar (and I always get a shiver of excitement when I think of that thrilling connection to Parisian adventure). Fancy Paris straight after the nuptials? Just pop out, and hop on…
Then there’s the venue itself. And my goodness, what a venue; the Evening Standard quite rightly called it, ‘the most romantic building in London’. From its dramatic Victorian gothic faà§ade, to its lavishly elegant event spaces, suites and indulgent spa, it’s designed to impress.
If you’re after the ultimate wedding photo, I give you the iconic Grand Staircase, extravagantly sweeping over three stories with a magnificent vaulted ceiling. And if you want to make a big, theatrical wedding entrance (let’s face it, it’s your one chance in life!), this is definitely for you.
From rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and groom parties, to ceremonies, wedding breakfasts and honeymoons, the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel offers a range of flexible packages — so you can start your wonderful journey in the finest way imaginable.
