The original palace by the sea, The Grand Brighton was built as a retreat for the London set. Boasting Victorian splendour, stunning architecture and sea views, it mixes sumptuous renaissance-style décor with statement furniture and glossy Art Deco-inspired accents.
An iconic Victorian property, the hotel takes centre stage on Brighton’s famous seafront, mere minutes from the pier. Its sea-facing facade has undergone restoration within recent years and now stands proud with new windows, restored balconies, new balcony furniture and rendering, further stamping its mark as a renowned local landmark.
When booking for 50 or more guests on the hotel’s wedding package, a complimentary stay in a deluxe sea view bedroom inclusive of breakfast and valet parking on the wedding day is included, as well as a menu tasting.
The fully-licensed private event rooms can accommodate anything from intimate gatherings to banquets for 500 guests. The traditional, wood-panelled Regent Room is ideal for smaller ceremonies of around 50 nearest and dearest, and is situated on the ground floor beneath the showstopping Victorian staircase. This room is also ideal for a wedding breakfast for up to 60 or post-ceremony drinks.
The Consort Room, also to be found on the ground floor, is ideal for ceremonies witnessed by 50 guests and can also be hired for a small wedding breakfast for up to 60 nearest and dearest. The space is also licensed for intimate evening celebrations with a DJ until midnight.
The Albert Suite is a beautifully appointed room suitable for ceremonies of between 50 and 100 guests. Its striking navy décor with white detailing highlights the architecture of this, the hotel’s original ballroom. Classic- meets-contemporary with the backdrop of the sea making a wonderful setting for the wedding breakfast for anywhere between 50 to 120 guests.
Finally, the Empress Suite is extremely flexible and can be used as one open space for up to 500 or divided into four separate interflowing suites for weddings of 120+. The classic design here helps to complement a wide range of themes and palettes. The area is also available as a dry- hire venue to include use of kitchen space.
