Restaurant / Hotel

The Grade II, 5-star Milestone Hotel in Kensington is the place to book for any bride and groom couple that want a small wedding. The chapel here can fit just 8 people and is apparently the smallest licensed wedding venue in London. As there's a whisky bar, a gorgeous conservatory, the elegant Park Lounge, plus Kensington Palace Gardens over the road for photo opportunities, this place is perfectly set up for small weddings. Plus, there's rooms upstairs so nobody has to leave!

Perfect for a dream wedding or civil partnership. A glamourous setting comes courtesy of high ceilings, large windows, semi-circular banquettes and conventional dining tables in the restaurant, and an alfresco terrace for reception drinks. There are various rooms and options available to brides and grooms, including holding the ceremony at the RIBA, to the sound of live grand piano music, followed by dinner, or cocktails and canapés.
