Situated within magical woodlands overlooking the beautiful river Thames, Orleans House Gallery provides the peace of the countryside within an urban landscape.
The stunningly restored Octagon room is full of character and has a rich history, dating back to 1721, when it was built to entertain Queen Caroline, wife of George II. The space can accommodate up to 60 guests for your ceremony and the public gardens leading from the room are the perfect place to host your post ceremony drinks reception.
Your guests will also be able to make the most of the unique venue and are encouraged to stroll around the grounds and explore the gallery exhibitions when they arrive.
There are plenty of beautiful reception venues along this stretch of the river, so why not catch a boat from the wonderfully quaint pier, situated just minutes walk from the gallery, to your evening celebrations? Or if you are looking for a smaller, more intimate lunch or afternoon tea party to celebrate your day, our on site Coach House can host up to 60 guests, with catering especially delivered by our on site Stables Cafe events team.
For further information please contact our Business Co-ordinator, who will be happy to discuss your plans in more detail.

Orleans house gallery is such a beautiful venue, and the space was perfectly suited to host our small ceremony of 12 guests. The whole place is very special and everyone was blown away by its elegance. Charlotte was lovely to communicate with, very reassuring and supportive during what wasn’t the most straight forward time to be getting married. Despite this, the team and Leslie in were just wonderful and the day went so smoothly. We just loved every minute, we can’t thank them enough! If you’re thinking of having your wedding here, you won’t be disappointed.Sent on 04/07/2021

Post Lockdown Wedding
We had stumbled across this beautiful venue by happy accident and fell in love instantly. Originally we had planned for a May civil ceremony with 60 guests but due to the pandemic we were forced to postpone our wedding with no knowledge of what the future held.
Charlotte was absolutely AMAZING and informative by really helping us keep up to date with the latest government guidelines and we were able to have an intimate ceremony with 20 of our closest family and friends in early September. The day went by seamlessly, and even the heavy rain decided to disappear so we had sunshine and smiles with full access to the stunning Octagon Room for the ceremony, the Courtyard and gardens!
We were really pleased to have chosen the Orleans House Gallery for our wedding, it was everything we wanted and more!Sent on 04/12/2020

Beautiful venue for Civil Wedding
Orleans Gallery is a beautiful, intimate venue. My fiancé and I are so glad that we chose this venue for our Civil Wedding ceremony. Lesley the wedding coordinator was excellent and extremely helpful throughout the ceremony. All the wedding guests have commented on how much they enjoyed the ceremony and the lovely venue.Sent on 21/06/2021
