SWD Visits…The Wedding Gallery, London

A luxury department store just for weddings? Sounds like a dream! We visit The Wedding Gallery, London.

 

When we arrive at The Wedding Gallery, it feels like a bit of a secret.

A hidden gem located in London’s iconic One Marylebone, the doorway to the brand-new concept store is understated, with a simple, chic canopy and pretty greenery.

Stepping inside the small door, we could never have anticipated the world of luxury which awaited!

 

WHAT IS THE WEDDING GALLERY?

So, what exactly is The Wedding Gallery? Featuring over 200 leading wedding brands and services, The Wedding Gallery is a hub for fashion, trends, wedding ideas and creativity.

Available by appointment, couples can find everything from the dream dress and expertly tailored suit to the perfect florist, cake maker, venue, caterer, stationer and everything in between.

The Wedding Gallery is also a home to the first salon dedicated to wedding beauty “ health, wellness, hair and make up for the bride and groom.

All customers become members of The Club at The Wedding Gallery and gain access to exclusive events, trunk shows and much more.

PART OF THE CLUB

Before our grand tour of the impressive space (all 20,000 sq ft of this wedding wonderland), we head to the gorgeous cafe and bar area. Think Pinterest-worthy furniture with plenty of plush velvet and gold.

The colour scheme at the moment is on-trend deep greens and grey, but The Club regularly updates the pieces.

A happy couple are enjoying afternoon tea and a glass of champagne each and there’s a buzz as staff prepare for one of their exclusive masterclasses later that day. It really is the perfect setting for dreamy wedding planning.

B-E-A-U-TIFUL

We start off at Urban Retreat, a gorgeous cove of cosmetic heaven with brands from Jo Malone to Moroccan Oil.

It’s not just about products either. Spearheaded by Creative Directors, Andrew Barton for hair and Ruby Hammer MBE for make-up, Urban Retreat offers services across hair, make-up, lashes and nails, getting you wedding day ready.

WITH THIS BOOK

We love all the little details of a wedding, so you can imagine our delight at the gorgeous offering of some very special notebooks.

Just look at the beautiful vows books!

BRIDAL STYLE

Of course, what would a wedding luxury department store be without the most amazing fashion for your big day?

With designers including Halfpenny London, Vera Wang, Amanda Wakeley and Suzanne Neville, it really is what wedding dress shopping dreams are made of.

FLOWER POWER

We were blown away by some of the most elaborate flower displays on show, giving plenty of inspiration for your big day. I mean, can you imagine your wedding day pics?!

TWG LOVES

What we loved most about TWG was just how curated everything is – like a real-life Pinterest board with suppliers you can actually have at your own big day.

This includes everything, right down to table place setting and stationery. This one gallery really does tick all the boxes!

PIECE OF CAKE

Seeing the works of art which were the wedding cakes up close was really something spectacular. How could you choose just one for your own wedding?!

OH LA LA

When we say every single wedding detail has been considered, we mean every single one, including the most stunning La Perla underwear and perfect wedding morning striped satin pyjamas.

DRESS UP

Of course, accessories weren’t missed out either, with the likes of Sophia Webster and Charlotte Olympia available to complete your w-day look.

THE DETAILS

Alongside all of the above, there’s also plenty of options for grooms’ style and a whole bridesmaid section. Plus, there’s also some really special touches, like the Screening Room which is a gorgeously intimate cinema screening room for you to watch videographer’s work when choosing your wedding day videographer – such a sweet idea!

We’re never going to be able to go into a normal department store again after this experience!
