A Romantic Townhouse Wedding in London

Exuding a hypnotic sense of elegance through architecture’s scale and texture, a grand Georgian townhouse in London’s Mayfair was the backdrop for a wedding spilling with romance.

A grand Georgian townhouse was the idyllic canvas for a wedding punctuated by elegance and romance in London’s Mayfair. Against the symmetrical and monumental spaces of Dartmouth House, creative director and photographer Lauren Alatriste, envisioned an event spilling with the contrasts of gentle and fierce, and the play of light and shadow. Exuding a hypnotic sense of sophisticated elegance, scale and texture were accentuated inside the historic property by delicate trailings of florals. Adding to the romance, the bride wore a finely embellished, ethereal handmade gown designed by Julita London offering a soft sense of fragility .

Capturing every elegant detail was Lauren Alatriste.

“Dartmouth House was a rare find and encompassed the feeling of luxury and elegance, without having to overdo it. I wanted to maintain a classic, yet ethereal feel.”

“From its fully marbled staircase to an enclosed courtyard, this venue is the kind of place you feel romance in from the moment you step inside.”

Lauren Alatriste’s Styling Tips

  • Consider the Georgian style architecture when choosing this venue. Each room is unique in style with details from ceiling to floor. Keep décor minimal and allow the architecture to speak for itself.
  • Dartmouth House could match an edgier vibe with a corset, think Renaissance era, or remain more timeless with something soft and ethereal.
  • Take advantage of one of the house’s rarest features and host a late spring or summer wedding in the open courtyard.
  • Compliment the space’s light and intricate finishes with a palette of flowers in soft, muted tones, and beautiful trailing foliages with perhaps some hints of blue.
