Be our Harry and Meghan

THIS HAS NOW CLOSED

The Sheraton Grand London Park Lane has a long history of bringing people together in the heart of Mayfair. From glamorous post-war parties for socialites and celebrities, through to sumptuous modern weddings, we’ve helped create everlasting memories for many. 

The news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s engagement thrilled the nation and as a popular and historical wedding venue ourselves, we wanted to add just a little to the joy – and help one lucky couple create some everlasting memories of their own.

So, we’re making the hotel – our magnificent Art Deco ballroom, our prestigious Grand Suite and a full wedding service package - available to Harry and Meghan should they want them, completely free, compliments of us. 

Naturally, not the Harry and Meghan but another Harry and Meghan. A real couple, a Harry and a Meghan (or a Harry and a Harry or Meghan and Meghan, irrespective of spelling) with a real intent to marry in 2018.

If this is you, we’d love to hear from you by 9 AM on Wednesday 7th March 2018

We don’t want to steal focus from the Prince and his bride-to-be completely, so we’re asking that our lucky couple be available to get married on Friday 4th May 2018

THIS HAS NOW CLOSED
