We were well looked after

By Lucy & Stephen, on 04 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Jan 2017

It was the perfect setting for our ceremony, traditional and cozy for a Winter wedding. The Old Library doesn't need over-decoration, the space is wonderful as it is. Thank you!

Truly Special & Unforgettable
Venue Service

By Ibrahim & Hodan, on 08 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016

We had a fantastic level of support from our event manager from start to finish. She was professional, personable and responded quickly to any queries we had. In addition, she was happy to arrange further meetings at the venue with us. Overall, we thought that Dulwich College was an amazing venue for our wedding. The grounds and architecture were picturesque, the Great Hall was able to accommodate our numbers and we felt that the hire was good value for money. It was just the classy venue we were looking for.

It was a perfect day...

Amazing on every level May 2016
Venue Service

By Roisin and Andrew, on 06 Jul 2016

My husband and I got married on 7th May 2016 and had our reception at Dulwich College. We had lots of juggling with dates for the venue, church and caterers and Sonia the events manager was so flexible. We managed to secure a date after we fell in love with the venue. It was so hard for us to find a venue near to our church which had parking on site and was easily accessible yet stunning. Dulwich ticked all the boxes with over 100 car park spaces, stunning grounds and internal building. Our guests were absolutely blown away by the venue. For the very reasonable and competitive price for a grade 2 listed building we had access to 4 rooms. We were able to have our guests have canapés and drinks in the lobby , then move up to the great hall for their meal and then down to the another room for the evening dancing and drinking. No worry about having to clear around the guests. We also had another room where we had kids entertainment whilst we done our speeches. My husband and I also took beautiful pictures in the library, such a special place that just captures the ambiance of Dulwich. The staff were amazing all the way through with regular check ins and planning meeting before hand to put our minds at rest. I can't say thank you enough to them such a personal and caring touch. We used in in house caterers Burrell catering and everyone said it was the best wedding food and service they have ever received. I could not recommend any more! Fantastic venue and service. Thanks Dulwich.

Perfect wedding venue!

Lovely venue for an exclusive small wedding. We hired the old library only and it was perfect for our small wedding. The building and grounds are stunning and the events team before and during the day were very helpful. Thank you to you all again for helping to make our day perfect! Would highly recommend this venue!

Excellent venue, a wonderful team.

I just wanted to drop you a belated thank you email for all your help with our wedding. You made everything seamless and it was a pleasure working with you! The day was amazing and we really lucked out with the sun, so we were thrilled. I'll certainly recommend you to anyone else I come across that plans to marry in London.

I enjoyed the exclusivity the venue provided.

It was absolutely lovely. I enjoyed the exclusivity the venue provided. Great parking and easy access. Sonia was a complete star. She was always a phone call or email away.

The perfect London wedding venue
Venue Service

By Sarah Vella-Brown, on 19 Nov 2013

I cannot praise Dulwich College or its events team highly enough - they were in a word, PERFECT! As a venue it has everything you need for a fantastic wedding; the Old Library is a beautiful place to make your vows, the Great Hall is stunning for the wedding breakfast and the Cloisters and Lower Hall provide the room for your guests to drink and dance the night away. It is also incredibly good value for money considering you get the entire Barry Buildings - it makes you feel like royalty for the day! This gorgeous venue offers so many places to take memorable photographs, it is hard to chose where to pose first. I would suggest the sweeping staircase myself! Our contact at the college during the year of planning was the wonderful, Head of Events, Julia and we knew straight away that we were in safe hands and that we were assured a stress free wedding day. The events team were impeccable throughout the day and no request was too small or trivial, they understood that every detail counts on your big day. Our guests were so impressed with the quality of the food and service - the best they'd ever had at a wedding. All we can say is another massive thank you to everyone at this beautiful college for creating a magical day that we will remember forever. If you are thinking of getting married in London, come to Dulwich College, you won’t be disappointed.

We have no regrets whatsoever about booking Dulwich College for our daughter’s wedding. Sonia’s advice and suggestions, based on our ideas and needs, were extremely helpful and well worth following. On the day the venue looked wonderful and the Great Hall really had the WOW factor. We got complements all round, justifiably, on the quality of the food. Florin’s management and attention to detail made sure the day ran smoothly and helped ensure a happy, relaxed atmosphere. As promised all we had to do was enjoy ourselves. We have no hesitation on recommending Dulwich as a wedding venue. They have a highly professional team who go out of their way to make you feel special.

Perfect Wedding Venue
Venue Service

By Isobel King, on 19 Jan 2009

Absolutely fantastic in every aspect. Every room had the ''Wow'' factor, the staff on the day were brilliant and Julia was fantastic from the beginning, always on hand to answer any questions and she let us get as involved as we wanted. We never stop getting compliments from our guests about the food either. All in all a perfect day. I recommend this venue to everyone!!

If it's available, book it!

Stunning building in beautiful grounds. Perfectly presented, delicious, in-house food with fantastic service and the supremely helpful College Manager, Julia. If you can't get Dulwich on your planned date then change your date we did. Once you've seen Dulwich College you are likely to stop looking.
