The Palace has hosted many incredible weddings in recent years which can also provide fantastic inspiration for your own luxury wedding. In June 2017, Folarin Alakija married Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa in a lavish faux ceremony in the Long Library with over 1 million roses decorating a bespoke Marquee for their wedding breakfast and evening reception! The Palace also hosted the wedding of Lord George, Marquess of Blandford and heir to Blenheim Palace, and Camilla Thorp on the 8th September 2018.
Previous weddings held at Blenheim Palace have seen the bride and groom arrive by helicopter to be greeted by ornate receptions featuring everything from caviar stations to oyster shuckers! Famous chefs have not only been on hand to work with the in-house catering team to create bespoke menus, but have also come out of the kitchen to meet and greet guests. Superstar performers like Billy Joel and Jack Savoretti and celebrity hosts like Hugh Jackman have also helped ensure the guests are thoroughly entertained. Finally, the evening’s festivities can be rounded off with spectacular firework finales set against the beautiful backdrop of the Park.
With so many magnificent celebrations in recent years, your luxury wedding at Blenheim Palace can be just as unforgettable and iconic.
