Buckingham Gate Visit

Buckingham Gate

It’s been a busy summer and after many rearranged appointments I finally made it The Private Rooms at Buckingham Gate at the invitation of Aali Ghufran the Conference & Private Rooms Manager.

So one rainy Friday morning Akansha from Vivah Weddings and Ericka from Fluttery Fly Events (we have found a real benefit in meeting up every couple of months just to talk & brainstorm about the world of wedding planning) and I arrived in Buckingham Gate which is just a short walk from some our most famous and beautiful landmarks such as Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Royal Parks.

Just walking into the lobby area gives you a feeling of grandeur and aristocracy and this was before we even started our show around.

We set off from the wonderful courtyard garden with its famous Victorian Fountain, where you could hold your Civil Ceremony or Drinks Reception surrounded by the most stunning architecture all around you.

It was then off to Spa at Fifty One which is included in Harpers & Queen’s Worlds 100 Best Spa’s and from the moment you walked in you were greeted by the most amazing aromas from the Anne Sémonin spa treatments and oils, the Spa is used by many a famous face who may be staying at Buckingham Gate whilst on tour, filming or appearing in the West End. Of course we were keeping an eye out for familiar faces.
Whether you want an intimate candlelit dinner party or your Wedding Reception the historic private dining rooms are a perfect location. Ornately furnished with turn-of-the century chandeliers make this a stunning back drop for your event and the location could not be better.

Aali kindly invited us to have lunch with him and I would highly recommend doing so the food like everything else was exquisite and we were truly spoilt.

We were all in love with The Private Rooms and discussing endless possibilities by the time we said good bye to our host Aali.
I have to say that this gem which has played host to Presidents, Princes & Her Majesty the Queen along with sportsmen and film stars is definitely a venue with sophistication, elegance, consummately professional staff not too be missed.
