About Lovekyn Chapel

This non-religious ancient building, licensed only for non-religeous civil ceremonies is conveniently situated in the heart of Kingston upon Thames, The Lovekyn Chapel is the only remaining free-standing chantry chapel in England and dates back to 1309.

This intimate medieval building is now the most popular venue for civil ceremonies and naming ceremonies in the Royal Borough.  The Registrar from Kingston Council will perform your marriage ceremony (you will need to book the Registrar through the Council).

The Chapel can seat up to 60 wedding guests comfortably and has stained glass windows and vaulted ceiling. There is also free use of our grand pianos. Or bring in your ipod & speakers or CD player and play whatever music you like! The acoustics are amazing!

There is a separate entrance and private waiting room for the bride if she doesn’t wish for the groom or guests to see her before she walks down the aisle!

A very popular option, for no extra fee whatsoever, is a champagne reception immediately after the ceremony. If the happy couple supplies the Champagne, we will serve it to the wedding guests for no extra charge and no corkage fee. They may serve whatever drinks they like - beer, wine, soft drinks etc - for free! Completely free! For a whole hour! And our staff will serve and clear up afterwards. What's not to love!!!!!

There is a beautiful courtyard garden for photographs and drinks and, if it rains, drinks can be served inside

Our in-house Wedding Coordinator will be on hand throughout, from the  initial enquiry right through to the wedding itself to co-ordinate your day for you. She will open the chapel and the car park two hours before a wedding to allow for deliveries. She will collect the bride from the wedding car and be on hand throughout to help in any way.

The chapel can be decorated with tasteful white silk flowers for free. 

Parking is available for the wedding car in our school car park and we can often provide more parking spaces for guests. However the NCP Cattle market car park is a one-minute walk away.

Even though it is situated in the heart of Kingston, once inside the chapel (because the walls are so thick) the traffic cannot be heard.

We only allow one civil ceremony per day and so the ceremony is not rushed.

We are available on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year for your civil ceremony. We are also availabe on weekdays (in school holidays)

    Just fantastic thank you

    We have just had our civil ceremony at the gorgeous Lovekyn Chapel and cannot thank the staff there enough for making our day truly fantastic.
    We booked the Registrars from Kingston Council to come out and perform our ceremony and they made the ceremony fun and we got to choose our own words.
    The staff from Kingston Grammar School who run the chapel were there all day to look after us and our guests and they even served the prosecco which we supplied to our guests.
    It was the most relaxed wedding ever and we cannot rate the chapel highly enough.

    Our wedding 19th may 2019

    A Perfect venue for a small and intimate wedding. We had 30 guests and they all loved Lovekyn chapel. It is very special and the event manager supplied us with all info we needed to organise our own special event. The courtyard was a lovely place to greet everyone after the ceremony before moving on to our reception. We’d certainly recommend the lovekyn!

    We loved every second

    Where do we begin? Everything it says on the website is true! We did bring in loads of beers and prosecco and the chapel staff served it to my delighted guests for a free party! We even did a free pre-wedding welcome drinks before the ceremony too!
    I (the bride) arrived via a private entrance so my husband-to-be and guests did not see me arrive in my dress before I entered the chapel.
    The whole experience was magical and the chapel staff looked after us and our guests from beginning to end.
    Cannot fault this wonderful venue
