Iconic London store ‘Selfridges’ to hold London Weddings
Hello Lovelies! Have you heard the news??! The iconic London store ‘Selfridges’ are to hold London Weddings! They now have a wedding license! Why would I want to get married on a shop, I hear you say, let me explain as your Selfridges Wedding Planner....
Henry Gordon Selfridge arrived in London in 1906 from Chicago with his heart set on opening his dream store. He had a revolutionary vision of retail and theatre which is still evident in the store today ‘Where everyone is welcome’. It was also a trend setter for window dressing as stores in the Victorian era didn’t usually have the windows elaborately dressed, the shop keepers simply stood in the doorway to tout for business. Selfridges is not simply ‘a shop’ It is an experience; Selfridges is the only store to have won best department store in the world.
Selfridges has long since been associated with weddings and is a go to destination for gifts and now it has launched its very own wedding service! BUT this is a limited offer only! Launching this summer guests of up to 20 will be able to tie the knot in the gorgeous Selfridges wedding suite. Situated on the fourth floor, experience the sumptuous luxury of the store as you say ‘I Do’ in this iconic destination.
If you are looking for something magical and different for your intimate nuptials, Selfridges is offering three packages, with help from your Selfridges Wedding Planner, we are sharing them with you:
