Comments from Paul Martin:
First opened in 1931 and renovated in 1990, the London Dorchester Hotel enjoys a superb location on Park Lane in Mayfair opposite Hyde Park. The Dorchester is one of the most desirable places in the world to stay. It embodies the highest of traditional values, with spacious rooms and suites of great charm, glorious dining and entertaining, and a spa of exquisite indulgence.

The Dorchester can cater for small wedding parties to large receptions. Security is particularly tight at this venue; consequently, it is not possible to access public areas like the lounge and foyer to undertake photographs. However, the opulent decor of all the rooms provides a beautiful backdrop for great wedding photography & I have enjoyed covering several events at this coveted 5 star hotel. Needless to say, the Dorchester is a highly recommended venue for a London wedding.
