The Royal Pavilion, The Perfect Venue For Your Brighton Event
If you’re planning a wedding or corporate event in Brighton and you really want to impress, in terms of grandeur, you can’t get much better than the Royal Pavilion.
With its marvellous, oriental-style architecture and beautiful Regency gardens, the Royal Pavilion is one of the most exotic locations in the UK.
Rich with history, elegance and style, the Royal Pavilion has all the ingredients for an unforgettable event and truly memorable photographs.
Here’s a look at why the Royal Pavilion, Brighton is the perfect location to give your event that all impressive ‘wow’ factor.
The Royal Pavilion was first constructed as a modest seaside residence for the then Prince Regent, George IV in 1787. He had been advised by his physician that he would benefit from the healing powers of the sea air, so the building was initially constructed to be used as a therapeutic refuge.
The building was lavishly decorated to suit the Prince Regent’s love for ostentatious designs. However, he wanted something even grander and in 1815 commissioned John Nash to transform the modest villa into the majestic oriental-domed, exotic building we see today.
Popular with corporate functions and especially weddings, the Royal Pavilion was one of the first venues in the UK to perform same sex marriage ceremonies.
The following state rooms are perfect settings for ceremonies, receptions and corporate events:
Red Drawing Room
This wonderfully romantic room is popular for wedding ceremonies. The red dragon wallpaper and palm tree pillars are those originally commissioned by George IV in the 1820s.
The most majestic room in the Pavilion, the music room is adorned with magnificent chandeliers, red and gold canvases and a stunning domed, cockle-shelled ceiling.
William IV Room
Perfect for a smaller drinks reception, the William IV room has a more understated beauty. It is filled with natural light and decorated with delicate, hand-painted Chinese wallpaper.
The Regency Gardens feature winding pathways, beautifully kept flower beds, lavish lawns and a unique collection of Elm trees.
The complex design of domes, towers and minarets give the building an Indian-style beauty and provides the perfect setting for unique, romantic and beautiful photographs.
