The Langham, Melbourne
Modern Sophistication with old World Opulence
Hailing from the same group that made The Langham, London such an iconic destination for royalty, dignitaries and celebrities alike, The Langham, Melbourne brings the timeless elegance of Victorian London to Australia’s extremely fashionable metropolis. Lauded as one of the best hotels in this Australian city of old meets new, a wedding at The Langham is all about modern sophistication with old world opulence. Their “service with poise” motto is inherited from its London cousin and given a new lease on life through charming Melbournian hospitality, while state-of-the-art facilities will not leave you wanting.
Situated on the banks of Melbourne’s Yarra River, The Langham is conveniently located just outside of the city’s Central Business District, so out-of-town guests can stay at the hotel and explore. The Eureka Skydeck, Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and the Arts Precinct are all within walking distance from the hotel, as well as a multitude of quintessentially Melbourne laneway cafés, designer boutiques and al fresco restaurants. For pre-wedding pampering, the Chuan Spa combines Australian-made products with European therapies and the nurturing qualities of Chinese Traditional Medicine.
The Langham features three function rooms for wedding events. Both the Clarendon Ballroom and the Yarra Rooms are embellished with warm, polished timber panelling, resplendent crystal chandeliers and lavish, French silk upholstered walls. The former is the Hotel’s largest function room, boasting a capacity of 230 guests banquet-style or 380 guests for cocktails, while the latter is slightly smaller but comes with views overlooking the Yarra River. The Alto is the third alternative, a high note of any wedding celebration with its rooftop location and 180 degree views of the glittering Melbourne skyline.
Wedding packages at The Langham are all designed to deliver a five-star experience “fit for a princess.” The “Happily Ever After” package celebrates your union with a decadent high tea affair, traditionally elegant in its core but personalised to reflect your individual style and needs. An assortment of miniature French pastries, gourmet ribbon sandwiches and warm fluffy scones sit delicately on the tiers of a silver tea stand, while a cascading chocolate fountain will be the centrepiece of this afternoon indulgence. The “Once Upon a Time” package features a chic cocktail soirée where your guests can mingle in style. Waiters at your reception will tempt with tantalising trays of tasty canapés and individual chefs will man their respective stations for an interactive cooking performance. To top it all off, petite desserts, a chocolate fountain and a four hour flow of beverages are included, as well as a dedicated styling team to bring your vision to life.
For those who want it all, the “Dreams Come True” package includes everything you could possibly want and need for the big day. Treat your guests to a culinary experience as well as a celebration, with a selection of hot and cold canapés upon arrival, a three course dinner and five and a half hours flow of drinks. An all-inclusive styling package will transform your venue of choice and leave no detail overlooked. All packages come with a personal wedding coordinator to help you put it all together, a complimentary stay at one of The Langham’s luxurious rooms for the couple’s wedding night and use of The Langham’s stunning setting for wedding photographs.
