The Pelham is a unique, stylish boutique hotel in the very heart of South Kensington.
Each and every room has been individually designed by Kit Kemp, blending the enchantment of English style with modern colours and flair, The Pelham has been described as one of London's finest townhouse hotels.
The wood panelled drawing room and library, together with the 51 individually designed rooms make a truly stylish base to explore what has been described as the "21st arrondissement of Paris". South Kensington is awash with boutiques, bars and bistros not to mention our own Bistro Fifteen and BAR 15.
Minutes from the Victoria & Albert and Natural History Museums, Harrods, Hyde Park and The Royal Albert Hall, The Pelham really is the perfect foundation for your sophisticated stay in London.
Having already played host to events for high profile clientele including Vogue, Bafta, Citigroup, the Royal Albert Hall and even the English National Ballet.
With this glorious history, Black Pearl Weddings have taken the opportunity to meet with Victoria, the Event Manager at the Pelham, to gain an insight into this luxurious hotel.
1. Please tell us a little bit about yourself and the Pelham Hotel?

Boutique, Charming, Vibrant
3. What can you offer to couples who wish to get married at your hotel?
Couples getting married at The Pelham will receive a luxurious and memorable stay, right from the moment they walk through the doors. Our most desired suites are available for the nights' stays before and after the ceremony, and the opportunity for an in-house massage from the beauticians at Santi Spa on your wedding night. Breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner can be arranged in our fabulous Bistro Fifteen, as well as a relaxing coffee in one of our lounges. The actual ceremony can take place in all of our event spaces, and can be arranged according to the organiser’s desires. A private dinner can then ensue, with a choice from various different private dining menus, and a party space can be set up complete with a DJ and dance floor to keep celebrations going until 2am. A post-wedding brunch the next day is also a lovely touch to the end of a beautiful experience here at The Pelham.
4. How long will you work with the couples before their wedding day?
I can work with the couple before their big day for as long as they need and can be in very close contact with them should they wish me to be.
5. Wedding couples are always looking for ways to save on their budget, how can you help with this?
We can be flexible here to work towards a budget, if the couples have one outlined. There are always various packages I can arrange and offer if this is more desirable for the couple.
6. Tell us a little bit about the team at the Pelham Hotel?
The team at The Pelham are really at the heart of the hotel. It is because of the genuine care that each of our staff possess for each guest that contributes to the five star level of service that they are sure to receive. The couple will certainly meet the staff in person, and the trust and passion for both the wedding itself and the couples’ needs will be at the forefront to the quality of their experience here at The Pelham.
Black Pearl Weddings would like to extend our sincere thanks to Victoria for her time and assistance.
