LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Feb 19, 2014) - All too often, planning a wedding feels a lot like conducting a science experiment. You can predict the outcome, but the only way you'll truly know how everything will turn out is to just go through with it. On March 9, 2014, however, the St. Pancras Renaissance London Hotel is taking the guesswork out of the bridal equation with A Wedding Journey, an event that will show couples exactly what they can expect at the hotel on their big day.
As far as London wedding venues go, St. Pancras easily ranks among the most romantic and inspired. Its pedigree dates back to the Victorian era when Sir George Gilbert Scott designed the neo-Gothic structure. Having played host to the upper echelons of society throughout the decades, the property has gracefully transitioned from offering historic charm to modern luxury, thanks in no small part to a recent, £150-million renovation. As a result, couples looking to wed someplace timeless, elegant and perhaps a little envy-inspiring will find everything they're searching for at St Pancras.
But couples don't have to take the hotel's word for it. They can see the details for themselves by attending A Wedding Journey between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on March 9. With staff wedding planners available to answer couples' questions, the hotel will showcase some of its most beloved wedding spaces. From the imposing Grand Staircase where every bride wishes to be photographed, to Hansom Hall -- which will be set up as if for a dinner-and-dance reception -- the hotel will offer a realistic look at what its event spaces can do.
The Gallery, for example, will be set up for a ceremony, so couples can imagine walking down the aisle (and under a glittering row of crystal chandeliers) to say their vows. And the Ladies Smoking Room will have champagne and canapés on-hand to highlight the kitchen's culinary prowess alongside the historic splendor of the room.
Visitors will also have a chance to meet at the event some of the hotel's preferred suppliers. Abigail Bloom Cake Company, for example, Pinstripes and Peonies (florist) and Mark Bothwell (photography) are just a few of the vendors who will make themselves available for questions that day.
Few other wedding venues in London could match the historical magnitude and sophisticated style of this property. Plus it allows guests and couples to experience some of the most regal five-star suites in London when they stay overnight. The Royal Suite, for example, once served as the Venetian Ballroom and is accordingly indulgent. A private kitchen, dining space for up to 22 guests, a sumptuous master bedroom and more all unfold beneath 16-foot ceilings to afford the last word in luxury living. Other options within The Chambers guest rooms feature the grandeur of yesterday (think high ceilings, ornate moldings and generous proportions) with the sleek aesthetic of today.
From London's finest five-star suites to the city's most impressive event spaces, A Wedding Journey promises to guide couples toward the wedding of their dreams -- and leave the guessing behind.
