The Wedding Gallery
London will soon become home to the world’s first upscale permanent wedding retail, planning and inspiration destination, located within one of the capital’s most lauded wedding and events venues – One Marylebone.
The Wedding Gallery, promises to be a relaxed and welcoming environment where visitors can browse an unrivalled, exclusive and evolving collection of wedding products and services under the guidance of industry experts. Visitors will leave feeling inspired, informed, focused and more confident about the type of wedding they can achieve.
The 20,000sq. ft. venue has been designed over two floors by celebrated New York architect Christian Lahoude, former Lead Store Designer at Gucci and Design Director at Tiffany & Co as well as the founder of a New York-based firm of architects responsible for designing boutiques for the likes of Jimmy Choo and Alexander Wang. Christian said of the launch “I am delighted to be working on this exciting new concept.
I will be creating an environment that allows brides and grooms to really indulge themselves in the planning of one of the biggest days of their lives. Too many brides run around their home cities or towns from one shop to another in a state of stress seeking their ideal components. The Wedding Gallery is designed to take away this pressure.”
The Wedding Gallery will be an end-to-end wedding planning experience, curated by leading industry experts where brides and grooms will be guided through the wedding planning process and have exclusive access to the collections of up to 200 brands. Open throughout the year and seven days a week.
The Wedding Gallery will double as an exclusive member’s club for the wedding industry offering meeting rooms, a multitude of event spaces, a café/bar, and library as well as playing host to regular trunk shows and networking activities.
Thousands of couples will pass through The Wedding Gallery each year, allowing them access to an unrivalled range of services to ensure that their individual needs are met. By appointment only, clients will be able to visit The Wedding Gallery in a number of ways to soak up the atmosphere and browse the curated list of wedding suppliers and fashion brands.
Taking advantage of the in-house expert team, clients will be able to book a 90-minute appointment with a Wedding Gallery Consultant, who will guide them through the space and the wedding planning process. Appointments will be charged at £50 and will include a glass of bubbles for up to four people. Additionally, they will receive a beautiful hard copy ‘Wedding Edit’ with details of suppliers and brands that suit the client’s wedding tastes, along with follow-up information and support from their consultant.
In the Fashion Departments, clients can book 60-minute appointments with a Wedding Gallery Stylist, charged at £30 who will offer advice about a carefully selected range of bridal and menswear designers. There will be focused consultations available for additional services such as bespoke jewellery design, honeymoon planning and gift list building.
