Introducing: Ace Hotel Shoreditch, coolest wedding venue ever
It's a bold statement, but one we stand by: you are going to absolutely ADORE the premium exhibitors we have on the blog today. We know that because we ourselves truly adore them - they've been on our wedding fair wishlist since way back when - and you guys went nuttttts when we announced that they were exhibiting on instagram. The coolest ethos combined with an unparalleled city view from their stunning rooftop and an exuberant location known for its major wow...without further ado, let us introduce Ace Hotel for their blog takeover...(remember to read all the way to the bottom for an exclusive Most Curious discount...yes, this is real life, and we may never recover from this major swoon!)
A little 'about you' for your business
Ace Hotel is a collection of individuals — multiple and inclusive, held together by an affinity for the soulful. Each Ace Hotel tries to celebrate and nurture the style, culture and experience of the place it’s in, and we open our doors to collaborators, partners and the public to foster a sense of community and belonging. We have hotels in Chicago, New Orleans, Pittsburgh, Downtown Los Angeles, London, Palm Springs, New York, Portland and Seattle, and also have a virtual hotel shop called Ace Shop.
Why did you decide to set up your own business?
Weddings at Ace Hotel London came about organically. The hotel is rich in communal spaces that can host a variety of gatherings, and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate community than bringing people together on the occasion of love. We launched with the Thoroughly Modern Marriage event in April 2016 and never looked back.
What's been the coolest/best moment of your career so far?
It’s really rewarding to hear feedback from guests, partners and clients about their wedding experiences with us. This collective and growing community isn’t a “best moment” per se, but it’s an ongoing reminder of why we do what we do.
Who or what inspires you?
The unique weddings — every couple is different, singular in their vision and, without fail, there is always an element of surprise at each ceremony. Whether a dog ring-bearer, a cake made by someone’s nan or a 12-story tequila tower, it’s incredible to see each couple’s energy and personality shine on their wedding day. It’s also continually inspiring to work with our suppliers. No matter the request, they work hard to make a client’s vision come to life. Last minute bongo drum procession? Done.
Who is your fave famous wedding from history and why?
We have many favorites — famous weddings are irresistible fodder for the imagination — but one that we’re especially inspired by is Iman and David Bowie’s (second) wedding. From the iconic guest list to the original songs Bowie created for the party, we can’t help but wish we had been a fly on the wall to witness such a brilliant and enduring love.
