A Classic Take on the Traditional Wedding Breakfast Gains Popularity at The Hotel Windsor

June 26, 2017 Hotel Deals No Comments Email Email

The treasured hotel has seen a rise in the number of newlyweds and their wedding parties booking in for afternoon teas to enjoy French sparkling, decadent pastries and savouries presented on traditional three-tiered stands, and the hotel’s famous scones, both in its private function spaces and in its One Eleven restaurant.

With an estimated 116,000 wedding celebrations taking place in Australia each year – on average costing in excess of $20,000* – hosting a wedding breakfast celebration at the Windsor’s splendid afternoon tea is proving to be a popular and elegant way to celebrate nuptials in Melbourne.  In the past twelve-months the hotel has hosted more than forty wedding receptions for afternoon tea, in addition to its classic wedding celebration offerings in the larger Grand Ballroom and Bourke Room.

One such couple are Ronnie Atlas (55) and Lorena Guzman-Moreno (45), who met six years ago in Melbourne, and have been inseparable ever since. It will be Ronnie’s first marriage and Lorena’s second, with her father set to give her away and her four children leading their mother down the aisle in her chantilly lace dress from Mariana Hardwick and underlay dress from L’Amour Bridal Boutique.

The couple who own and run Balwyn’s Republic of Letters café, a concept cafe based on influences from the French enlightenment and film, will be marrying at the Old Treasury Building, which is just a minute’s walk away, before hosting an afternoon tea in the Windsor’s Canberra Room with 43 family and close friends.

“We decided on the Windsor because it is an icon of chic and elegance and its afternoon tea service is the best in Melbourne. The private reception rooms are perfect for more exclusive bridal parties, and that’s the sort of intimate environment we wanted to share with our family and closest friends,” says Ms Guzman-Moreno.

“I love that The Hotel Windsor has history to it and is reminiscent of the sort of ambience one might find in France.  As an absolute Francophile, this is a massive incentive. If we can’t get married in Paris, then The Windsor Hotel is the only possible option!”
