A wedding at the Orchid is different…. unique. Nowhere is this more apparent than in how we go about creating and delivering genuinely showstopping food and drink for your dream day. We simply don’t do menu options and pre-set packages – everything is tailor-made to your precise wishes. And if you need some guidance, that’s fine too… we’ll establish at the very start what you like (and what you don’t) and design a bespoke bill of fare that thrills your palate and exceeds your expectations. We’ll draw up a sample menu and – once you’ve had a chance to taste and approve all the dishes – we’ll suggest a wine list to complement and enhance your food choices.
“What surprised our guests most about our wedding? Easy… the food. With a level of cuisine several notches above what you’d ever expect from an intimate boutique hotel, it felt like everyone was dining at the top table.”

With wedding drinks, it’s easy to follow a well-trodden path and serve guests with satisfactory but ultimately uninspiring wines and champagnes. At the Orchid, we delight in doing things a little differently. Alongside some of the world’s greatest premium labels, our cellar also offers the esoteric (and frequently extraordinary) from the best boutique vineyards our vintners have been able to track down. The result? Classic champagnes and grands crus rub shoulders with spectacular bottles from smaller, artisan producers, enabling you to offer your wedding guests truly exceptional wines.
Service, setting… simply stunning
Now that our refurbishments are complete, the Orchid is a sumptuously elegant setting for your wedding breakfast. Dine in the chic surroundings of the fabulously glamorous Paloma Suite, or entertain your guests in the light, airy and classically gracious Aurelia Suite… both rooms lend a palpable sense of occasion and style to your festivities, the latter also enjoying its own private bar. With highly trained, attentive yet unobtrusive waiting staff on hand at all times, you’ll also find that service is second to none. At the Orchid, we provide a higher waiting staff per guest ratio than most wedding venues and, by this simple expedient, achieve seemingly effortless efficiency and smooth, seamless service.
