Wedding Venue Visit : 29 Portland Place

This week I am sharing a completely different wedding venue with you then last week's English Country venue. We have had the idea of the English countryside wedding in our mind for awhile, but we have also liked the idea of a London city wedding. When I discovered the gorgeous 29 Portland Place I knew I had to see it! 
 29 Portland Place is a beautifully restored Georgian building designed by Robert Adam. Located in the posh area of Marylebone, this venue has an amazing grand staircase and black and white checkered floor at the entrance {I have a bit of an obsession with the black and white check thing!}. The building is full of beautiful plasterwork and glamouros chandeliers, I was in LOVE! I dream of having these walls in our house some day, for our wedding that would be amazing! 
 The venue is split into two separate ballrooms, over two floors. Ideally we would like enough room to have cocktails in one, dinner in another and dancing close by, but being that I loved the space, we could always turn the beautiful downstairs room into a hip lounge for dancing after dinner. 
 With chandeliers like this, you do not need a lot of decor! Or how about below, the fireplaces, gasp, gorg! I was LOVING this image from an event they hosted where the flowers were cascading over the mantle. 
The building also houses a luxury wedding planning company, Quintessentially Weddings. What a perfect combination! As much we love the venue, I think it might be over our budget a bit. We still need a ceremony space and lot of other details and I worry it might be just a bit too small. I am dreaming of hosting a birthday party or a lavish dinner party here in the future. Some day. Or maybe planning someone else's wedding here? Anyone? 

Looking for that chic venue in London, highly recommend it! Its stunning!
