If you are looking for something a bit different on your wedding day then look no further than Kettners, a glamorous 1930s style wedding venue. Located in the heart of Soho, the Grade II listed building has a wonderful combination of both history and glamour offering a variety of stunning spaces for your perfect day.
This week, I was invited to the Wedding & Christmas Showcase event where I got a tour of the venue, meet the friendly Events team and find out more about why Kettners makes the perfect wedding and Christmas venue.

Originally opened in 1867, the historic venue has tones of character. Since it has been open, customers who visited the venue include Oscar Wilde, King Edward VII and Bing Crosbie. Nowadays it hosts Christmas parties and wedding receptions and licensed for civil ceremonies and partnerships.
Kettners insist they are passionate about food and drink and guests can expect to be spoilt rotten with the finest 1930s inspired cuisine. At the event, I tried an example of the canapés and cocktails you would expect to be served at Kettners - very tasty!
I know how much a wedding takes time and patience and I was lucky enough to have a wonderful wedding coordinator to help me plan my wedding. Kettners offer the same, with a dedicated wedding coordinator within their Events team who will help guide you through every step of the way. Upon request they can also offer assistance with booking florists, hotels, dress hire, entertainment and more.
Simple yet beautiful, centre piece arrangement
Salle De Fete, one of my favourite rooms
The venue has eight adaptable private rooms to choose from. The Salle De Fete meaning "party room" on the top floor was beautiful, light and airy and had a wonderful penthouse feel with a bar too. The room seats 55 and 120 standing so would suit a larger wedding party. Alternatively there is the event space, "the studio" perfect for intimate ceremony or smaller wedding party.
The Studio - set up as a ceremony room
Kettners have released their new wedding packages with a variety available to choose from. I love the "Unforgettable" wedding package, the menu looked delicious! If you are not getting married then you can still enjoy a meal at Kettners as it is open as an all day brasserie serving a range for European dishes from casual lunch to a theatre supper and Christmas celebrations.
Getting into the Christmas spirit!
All eight of the event spaces can be booked for a variety of Christmas celebrations from work lunches, dinners and receptions to family gatherings or celebrating with friends.
