    Harrods, the department store fit for royals, is now targeting every Jewish princess by advertising kosher weddings.

    The store formerly owned by the
    Al Fayed brothers, until it was bought by the Qatari royal family in 2010, has previously held several royal warrants.It has now gained another stamp of approval in the form of kosher certification from the Sephardi Kashrut authority.

    Couples can expect lavish package offers from its shelves, including dresses, jewellery, honeymoons and even weddings inside Harrods itself.

    Kosher caterer Philip Small has been advising the company for two years, training staff, including chefs and senior management, on how to handle simchas.

    He said: “The Harrods brand is global and the standards are very high. For the most recognised store in the world to say: ‘Yes, we want to do kosher catering’, is just amazing.”

    A Harrods spokesperson said: “The resource is truly unique, pulling together the extensive range of departments and services available at Harrods.

    “And, by this token, Harrods wanted to ensure that no stone was left unturned for the services offered to couples, with the same exceptional quality and creativity applied to kosher weddings.”

    Two weddings are already in the pipeline.
