Selfridges has announced it will offer “non-traditional ceremonies” after obtaining a wedding licence at its Oxford Street store.

The wedding packages on offer include a wedding breakfast or three-course meal at the Brasserie of Light, a private screening of a favourite film in the Selfridges Cinema or a DJ set from east London collective Sink The Pink.

The ceremonies will take place in a dedicated wedding suite on the fourth floor of the store, which will be tailored for each wedding.

The “Just The Two Of Us” package is a minimal option for those wanting a small ceremony and reception with a maximum of four guests.

Customers will be able to make appointments for everything from wedding day makeovers and styling appointments to custom-made floral arrangements and canapé consultations.

Selfridges said the store is a “social space” and is keen to offer new ways to “celebrate the special experiences everyone has been missing”.

The temporary licence permits Selfridges to host “micro weddings” of up to 20 guests. Ceremonies are being held in a suite on the fourth floor with the service also available for civil partnerships.

For couples worried about sustainability the store is offering the “earth-lovers” package, where they can pick from vintage clothing or rent an outfit and toast the day with organic champagne and wine.
