Introducing The Ariana Group…

Two venues. The same five-star service. Simply pick your location…

Ariana Banqueting Hall (London)

Whether you’re having one function or several, it’s likely that for your main reception you’ll need space to accommodate all the guests you’re keen to feed as part of your celebrations. Ariana Banqueting Hall in North London ticks all the boxes: it has all the practicalities alongside care and attention from an experienced team and can seat up to 800 guests for a lavish sit-down wedding.

Located on private landscaped gardens, surrounded by green hills and lined with trees, it offers a new kind of banqueting experience making a welcome change from the usual urban venues on busy high streets.

Ariana Banqueting Hall opened to much fanfare in March 2014 and has developed a reputation for understanding the needs of all cultural weddings. They welcome, fires for Hindu weddings and for their Muslim clients offer a prayer room. It’s also possible to arrange segregated seating areas, the team is happy to arrange the layout of the space to suit the needs of every couple.

Experience the charm
Arriving at Ariana is part of its appeal and is an experience all your guests will appreciate. The entrance is via a private gated estate where guests are met by security and parking attendants to ensure the smooth running of getting everyone inside on time.

The space itself consists
of a grand hall that can accommodate up to 800 guests and a luxurious conservatory that leads onto a pretty private garden; an ideal spot to have your portrait photographs taken. Decorations are welcome and whatever your theme, the team here can arrange it for you, or recommend one of their experienced suppliers. So whether you want fresh flowers in every corner or love the idea of themed props, consider it done. 

VIP experience
Ariana also offers a bridal room; a sanctuary for the bride where she can have her hair and make-up done or simply use it to relax in and escape to during the day. The five star service doesn’t stop there. The venue’s in-house wedding coordinators are committed to ensuring all your needs are looked after every step of the way, from your initial booking, right up until the Big Day. This could be having someone to talk to, offering advice and support, as well as sourcing the finest service providers so you don’t have to

Ariana Gardens (Essex)

Make your wedding dreams a reality. Ariana Gardens is an enchanted Manor House nestled in the Essex countryside and it’s the perfect venue for couples who want to get married in London without needing to worry about space, as Group Director Thufayel Ahmed explains: “When we opened Ariana Banqueting Hall in 2014 we filled a gap in the market, offering couples a new kind of experience for large weddings and we used our experience there to create our second venue Ariana Gardens. Some couples hire both for different functions and it’s great to be able to share in their special day in such an important way.”

Designing your day
The building has two floors and both can be incorporated into your celebrations. For example, you could host a drinks reception, entertainment and an afternoon tea on the ground floor, while upstairs can be transformed into the dining space for the evening, allowing you to create two very different atmospheres, giving your wedding the wow factor. As the rooms are a blank canvas you can decorate them to your own tastes and this is where the fun really begins. The team has in-house caterers but also welcome you to bring your own.

The great outdoors
The focal point of the venue is of course its beautiful, spacious gardens. The Main Hall has its own conservatory overlooking private gardens that you and your guests can enjoy. In the summer it becomes the perfect backdrop for serving drinks alfresco, taking your photographs, and even a bouncy castle to keep your younger guests entertained. All bookings include exclusive hire of the whole venue, so you can be assured that everyone will be safe whether they are inside or out. There’s also a covered shisha bar which is popular with guests who want to relax in the evening after the meal.

Created to fit your budget
Whether you opt for Ariana Gardens or Ariana Banqueting Hall it’s refreshing to know that neither venue operates set packages. The team here believes in flexibility and will work within your budget. Whether it’s minimal or extravagant,  you’ll get to enjoy your dream wedding exactly the way you want.
