Lord’s Cricket Ground in the heart of London is one of the most impressive wedding venues in the capital. The Home of Cricket houses an array of unique facilities from the old world elegance of the Grade II*-listed Pavilion to the ultra modern and award-winning J.P. Morgan Media Centre. Delivering food, service and attention to detail that is expected from such a setting, Lord’s is the gold standard, which is why it is proud to offer the services of Michelin-starred Indian restaurant Tamarind.
Rajesh Suri, CEO of Tamarind Group, comments, “It’s incredibly inspiring for us to work with such a fascinating historical venue and with such a creative team. The wedding coordinators at Lord’s offer an amazing bespoke service that covers anything from flowers and lighting to ground tours and personalised messages on the scoreboard. Our job at Tamarind is to offer exquisite food and flawless service that will be every bit as memorable.”
Tamarind Events has a wide choice of menus available encompassing both traditional and contemporary Indian flavours and both canapés and multi-course meals. Menus respond to the seasons thus allowing guests to make a selection suited to anything from a summer drinks reception on the terrace to an opulent feast in one of the venue’s historical rooms.
Lord’s holds a license for civil marriages and civil partnership ceremonies and is able to offer a range of space suitable for weddings on both a grand and an intimate scale.
Within the famous Pavilion itself, there is the high-ceilinged Long Room (for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts for up to 200) with its view of the ground and its adjacent Long Room Bar. For a smaller family gathering, there is the Writing Room, also with views over the hallowed turf. In the summer months, however, it’s hard to beat the Pavilion Roof Terrace with its balcony that overlooks the entire ground.
The Thomas Lord Suite, meanwhile, is perfect for large groups and for celebrations and dancing into the wee small hours. It has a maximum capacity of 350 but can be split into two smaller spaces. The Harris Rose Garden near the Pavilion entrance can host summer parties for up to 200.
