• ‘Tis the season to propose: 2020 weddings with Searcys

    19 December 2019

    Every festive season proves it’s the most wonderful and popular time of the year for wedding proposals, with Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve being the two favoured dates to pop the question. Ready for prospect brides and grooms, we are easing the pressure for the big day with an exclusive edible engagement ring box, a partnership with fashion wedding designer, Lisa Redman, as well as additional 20 bottles of complimentary Champagne to wedding parties booked before the end of February 2020.

    As the last stop before a (surprise) romantic trip to Paris and with the longest Champagne bar in Europe, our Champagne Bar at St Pancras is fast becoming the ideal place to propose. To add to the romance, the Champagne Bar is just below the famous 30ft lovers’ statue ‘The Meeting Place’, a gentle reminder of the romantic nature of train travel, and Tracey Emin’s evocative artwork in bright pink neon: ‘I want my time with you’. In 2019 only, over 10 couples have chosen the romantic Champagne Bar setting to propose. St Pancras by Searcys will give you a helping hand in the proposal department with a delicious edible engagement ring to pop the question. Covered in fondant icing, the cake box can be ordered as little as three days in advance, under two different packages: £200 with two glasses of Champagne, or a full package for £265, which includes two glasses of Searcys Selected Cuvée Champagne and a seasonal food platter to share.

     

     

    20 Bottles for 20 Weddings

    For 2020, we have partnered with London fashion wedding designer, Lisa Redman, to offer three of her bespoke embellished nappa leather gloves (retailing at £275) as a prize draw to brides confirming their celebration with Searcys by 29 February 2020. Lisa Redman’s much-loved designs hail from her acclaimed atelier in Notting Hill, where she makes luxurious wedding wear using the finest silk. Her prized dresses will also be available for a wedding open day event, hosted at the Gherkin on 29 February 2020.

    Wedding parties booked at one of our participating iconic venues will receive 20 complimentary bottles of Searcys Cuvée, adding extra sparkle to the special day. With notes with elegant, fruity notes of citrus, Searcys Selected Champagne Brut is the perfect accompaniment to toast to the happy couple.

    Searcys has over 172 years of experience in creating memorable celebrations. Having started as a wedding cake maker and party organiser, we offer the expertise and stunning locations to make sure the wedding day goes off without a hitch. Walk in the footsteps of royalty at historic venues of The Pump Room in Bath, The Honourary Artillery Company (THE HAC) or The Alnwick Garden. Or surprise guests with unmissable views of London from the top of Sir Norman Foster’s iconic architectural landmark, the Gherkin or the Barbican. With our bespoke packages, menus and venues to tailor to any event, make your day the talk of the wedding season.
