      A special experience with leading British wedding gown couturier Phillipa Lepley.

      Brides-to-be who choose to celebrate their wedding at The Berkeley, or who book a stay in a Chelsea Suite or above, can enjoy an exclusive personal consultation with the bridal couturier Phillipa Lepley. This will take place over a special bridal Prêt-à-Portea, the hotel’s fashion-inspired afternoon tea, after which you will be chauffeur-driven to a private viewing of wedding gowns at Phillipa’s atelier in nearby Chelsea.

      Having dressed London’s elite brides for over 25 years, Phillipa will share her experience on how to make you look your absolute best, from finding your individual style to learning small but important details such as how to fit a veil.

      Phillipa’s style is romantic, feminine and elegant, with Dior-esque full skirts and corseted bodices, made with fine fabrics such as Italian duchesse satin, layered chiffon and French lace hand-embroidered with vintage pearls and diamante crystals. Her bespoke ‘Berkeley’ gown combines silk tulle and French lace, in homage to the chic sophistication of the hotel.

      Should you decide on a Phillipa Lepley dress, you will enjoy personal fittings with the designer herself at her Chelsea studio. If you are holding your wedding at The Berkeley, you can book your final fitting in your suite – a discreet environment in which to finesse all the details and showcase the dress to friends or family before the big day. 

      Phillipa Lepley commented: “One of my first ever brides stayed at The Berkeley for her London fittings and since then the hotel has held a very special place in my heart; I’m always inspired by the attention to detail and contemporary British feel of the hotel. It is also next to one of my favourite churches in London where many of my brides have celebrated their big day.”
