Describe the best wedding that happened at Pelham House?
Every wedding is so different, it is impossible to pick just one but a lot of the vibe and atmosphere of a wedding is set by the the Bride and Groom. A stand out wedding was when one of our couples arranged a Greatest Showman interlude following the wedding breakfast! We had stilt walkers, acrobats, fire eaters and ringmasters. It was great fun!
