Fabulous historic venue
It was an honour to be able to have our wedding in the wonderful place that is the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Our guests were blown away at how grand it all felt!

The grounds and buildings serve as an amazing backdrop for photos and it all felt quite private considering its in the heart of London and home to the Chelsea Pensioners.

Personal & Friendly Service
We just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you and your team at RHC for your hard work, support and professionalism both at and in the run up to Sophie and Christopher’s wedding. We know RHC hosts a lot of events, many much bigger than our own, yet we never felt just a name or a number, it was always a very personal and friendly service, thank you.

Thank you
Thank you and your team for all you did to make the wedding of our son and his new wife so unbelievably special and memorable. It was such a moving and memorable day in a thousand ways, but certainly having the reception and dinner at such an incredible site was amongst the top two or three best aspects! All of the arrangements were beautifully thought through and so well executed; I know that such a successful outcome does not come without massively hard work.
