Whether you're looking for a spectacular location for your special day, or you need to find the perfect wedding or engagement ring, gift or accessory, The Royal Exchange is here to make it a wonderfully memorable and enjoyable experience.
And of course — these wonderful venues aren’t available just for weddings. 50th birthday party, anyone? Or how about a corporate event to inject some opulence into your workforce? Or even just because. Sometimes, the party is its own reason. In settings like these, this was never more true.
For those who wish to tie the knot within the iconic Royal Exchange building itself, Fortnum & Mason holds a wedding license, and its dedicated events team will work closely with each couple to help plan the wedding of your dreams for up to 200 guests. This could include a civil ceremony, pre-dinner drinks and canapés reception, a seated dinner, as well as floral arrangements and keepsake gifts for guests to take away.
Set in the Grade 1 listed vaults beneath The Royal Exchange, The Libertine marries 450 years of tradition with modern service and comfort. A truly spectacular space with timeless appeal, The Libertine is the perfect wedding venue for those looking to create memories that will last a lifetime. With space for 450 guests, truly bespoke food menus, flawless hospitality and absolutely unique design, The Libertine is a chamber of spirited revelry for you and your guests to celebrate the magic of a wedding.
A Unique Experience
Each and every wedding is individual, and personalisation is an integral part of making the day unique. Engravings can be added to a selection of Tiffany’s wedding bands and rings, with collections dedicated to both him and her available at The Royal Exchange. Jo Malone London also offers a bespoke wedding consultation service at The Royal Exchange, which enables couples to find a tailor-made fragrance combination that is entirely exclusive to them.
You can also explore an extensive array of gifts available at The Royal Exchange, that are sure to delight the bride and groom. Homeware always makes a thoughtful and useful wedding present, and Georg Jensen’s sleek Scandinavian silverware can be engraved to add an even more personal touch.
Dressing for the Day
When it comes to dressing for the day, you will find a selection of style inspiration, from Bremont’s beautifully engineered chronometers to beautifully-crafted Tateossian cufflinks – which can be personally engraved – and Aspinal of London’s handmade leather handbags. Crockett & Jones’ Special Order footwear service enables customers to have a pair of hand-crafted shoes made with the choice of different styles, upper material and sole types, all of which can be selected from the extensive range of models and materials found in The Royal Exchange store. And to enhance your natural beauty and get you looking your best for the big day, M&K Aesthetics offers a range of premium beauty services including permanent make-up, dermal fillers, lash and brows treatments and PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments.
For those looking to get suited and booted, SIRPLUS is big on the waistcoat as a centrepiece, highlighting single or double-breasted options in a style both polished and relaxed: whether these be cool neutral shades or bold pop-art colours to light up the room.
Catering for your needs
And the last word in weddings? It’s Ladurée. Let the Parisian maison take care of your cake — a traditional three-tiered extravaganza in rose and raspberry or pistachio and praline! Or how about the brand’s Traditional Croquembouche: a pyramid of small round choux filled with crème pâtissière and topped with caramel, decorated with sugared almonds and flowers. It’s worth getting hitched for these alone!
For catering at a venue of your choice, Ladurée offers private catering with delectable savoury and sweet menu options.
Everything for an Engagement
Getting engaged is one of the most special and monumental experiences couples will share together ahead of the wedding day, and at The Royal Exchange you will find an exquisite selection of jewellery and engagement gifts to celebrate the occasion.
The Royal Exchange Jewellers stocks a scintillating array of diamond engagement rings within its boutique, as well as a range of handmade and antique diamond rings. Yet as a specialist in bespoke jewellery, its team of expert jewellers embrace every bespoke commission with enthusiasm, and offer friendly consultations to help customers create their perfect engagement ring design.
Vashi also gives customers the chance to co-create original pieces of ethical fine jewellery to fit your specifications and budget, with a workshop situated in its Royal Exchange boutique. Customers can choose their own diamond and ring style combination, and are encouraged to take part in every step of creating their unique ring, all from the comfort of the store’s luxurious lounge.
Renowned for its exquisite designs and rare stones, Boodles will help you to find the perfect engagement ring from its exclusive “Library” corner, where customers can enjoy a glass of champagne or delicious cocktails while choosing from the boutique’s exceptional collection of fine jewellery.
To send your congratulations to the newly-engaged pair, you can discover a refined selection of gifts for couples from Tiffany, Georg Jensen and Smythson, and for engagement party supplies, Fortnum & Mason has all manner of delicious edible and drinkable treats.
