Full Description
"An amazing, different and truly memorable place to get married. How many places can you have dinner right next to Rembrandts, Gainsboroughs and Canaletto?!" -- Helena Feasey, Bride. Dulwich Picture Gallery is London’s best kept secret. Founded in 1811, this hidden gem is the first purpose built public art gallery in the world and has been celebrating art for over 200 years. The building is an architectural masterpiece designed by Regency architect Sir John Soane, offering an intimate and unforgettable experience for weddings. The Gallery provides a stunning backdrop for both civil ceremonies and wedding receptions, with the choice to hold celebrations in the magnificent Soane Gallery or use the beautifully landscaped for a marquee reception. Just 10 minutes from Victoria Station, Dulwich Picture Gallery is conveniently located close to both West Dulwich and North Dulwich Station. The leafy village environment provides an idyllic escape from the City and is surrounded by free parking. All money generated through venue hire goes towards the conservation and care of the Gallery and supports the development of the on-going education and exhibition programmes.

dinner right next to Rembrandts, Gainsboroughs..
“How many places can you have dinner right next to Rembrandts, Gainsboroughs and Canaletto?! With my memories and the gallery being so stunning it seemed like a great place. The gallery works just as well for a winter wedding as a summer one, and we really liked the idea of the one long table in the gallery. Everyone – Nick and I and my parents – were unanimous that we’d get married there
