Helping us have the most beautiful day

The team of Orleans House Gallery was fantastic and so helpful! On booking we had a lot of questions and Beverley went above and beyond to support our process and explain what we need. On the day Lesley was more than a family member to us. Supporting with making sure everything went smoothly and according to our plans. Our family and friends had the best time and we couldn鈥檛 have done it without the team amazing support! This beautiful venue was everything we wanted to have a wonderful day.

Fabulous day and Fairy tale experience

We are so happy we decided to celebrate our special day in the stunning Orleans House Gallery venue which ended up being a memorable and intimate event for us. Charlotte was very helpful when we first contacted the team couple of months before prior to our event and she was instrumental in arranging everything as per our wish leading up to our big day. Regardless of the stream on inquiries from us, we thoroughly appreciated the patience and prompt responses from the team which made it ever so easier to plan the event and more importantly build the confidence that everything will be delivered from the support of the team on the day.
On the day, we were so happy with how everything was laid out for us; we were particularly thankful to Val (our coordinator on the day) who ensured everything went smoothly during the ceremony and she was pivotal in making the whole experience stress free for us the newly weds but also build a joyful atmosphere for the guests. We couldn't have asked for anything more!
As for the venue itself, it is absolutely elegant and magical. It is the perfect setting for royal experience and pictures. It truly did ooze with class and our guests were genuinely amazed by visual treat from the interior designs and incoming natural light which made it a delightful experience. Our event happened in September and it was perfect for outdoor pictures with the natural trees as backdrop.
It was a breath taking day and I would highly recommend the venue not only because of the stunning venue, but also because of the outstanding, professional and dedicated team that will guarantee to make it the best day. We are forever grateful for the memories made that was only possible because of the team and Orleans House Gallery is the place to choose for your special day.

Couldn't be happier!

We got married here in July 2023 and blew our guests away with the beautiful venue. It was perfect for our intimate wedding and we were able to stay at the venue to host a champagne reception afterwards which was lovely (and no corkage fee was especially fantastic!). Everyone was very helpful in the lead up and on the day and couldn't be happier with our venue choice.

Magical venue and impeccable service

The venue is truly breathtaking, exuding an enchanting charm that feels out of this world. The lush grounds adorned with flourishing trees and radiant windflowers create a captivating setting for a truly romantic wedding. When you step inside the Octagon room, you are mesmerised by the awe-inspiring windows that bathe the space in abundant natural light, while the opulent, gold gilded ceiling emanates a warm and grandiose glow.

When it came to booking the venue and preparing for the big day, Beverley and Charlotte made the entire process a breeze. Their assistance and support were invaluable in ensuring everything was perfect. And on the day itself, Leslie shone like a gem, offering a sense of calm, impeccable organisation, and unwavering attentiveness amidst the whirlwind of celebration.

Both the venue and the team surpassed all expectations on the big day, and I wholeheartedly recommend them to any bride-to-be. Their professionalism and dedication are unparalleled, guaranteeing a truly perfect wedding experience.

Still on cloud nine

We're still on cloud nine from our Wedding at Orleans House Gallery last month (April 2023). I fell in love with the Octagon Room having come across it while on a day out, and it was a game changer for our ceremony. Suddenly everything became more magical and we are so happy we met Charlotte, Lesley, Beverly and the team. It's a very special place to get married and the whole morning went smoothly thanks to everyone involved. All our guests were blown away by the stunning room and location. We had a champagne reception following the ceremony with speeches and photos. Just perfect.

A beautiful location with the most wonderful staff

We are so happy to have picked Orleans House Gallery to hold our wedding ceremony and could not have imagined a more beautiful venue. The Octagon Room and the surrounding gardens are absolutely beautiful! All of our guests commented how beautiful the location was and it felt like a wonderful oasis away from the hustle and bustle of London. We picked Orleans House because we loved the ceremony room and wanted a beautiful indoor location with lots of light - it was perfect! But beyond the lovely location, the thoughtfulness and dedication of all the staff really stood out to us. Charlotte and Beverley were a dream to work with leading up to the day and were always available to answer to even the smallest question. They were incredibly accommodating to all our requests, such managing the drop-off of all our supplies for our drinks reception, and letting us arrive super early to the venue to take photos beforehand. Lesley made sure every detail of our ceremony and drinks reception went smoothly and was extremely attentive to every detail - even making sure my veil and train were perfectly arranged for the confetti throw! We appreciated all these details so much and could not recommend this venue more highly. Thank you to everyone at Orleans House Gallery for such a perfect day!

The Perfect Venue!

We were incredibly lucky to have our wedding ceremony at Orleans House Gallery. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, steeped in history and in beautiful surroundings.

What made it even more special was the amazing staff doing all the magic behind the scenes. The whole team were absolutely brilliant in their support on the day but also in the run-up to our day. They are professional, friendly, genuine and punctual. Overall, excellent event organisers. I couldn't recommend them and this venue more highly!

Perfect wedding ceremony

We got married in the Octagon Room at Orleans House Gallery last weekend and I could not recommend it more. It was the perfect venue for us, the room is beautiful with so much natural light shining in on the period decor. It was the most stunning place for us to be married. We had drinks and nibbles afterwards outside under the trees which again was just perfect. The staff were helpful and friendly from start to finish. It really is the most stunning venue.

Beautiful venue

We recently had our ceremony at Orleans House Gallery, followed by a drinks and canape reception in the gardens, and a tea ceremony.

The venue is beautiful, with stunning big windows that bring in lots of natural light. We couldn't have chosen the more perfect venue.

Charlotte, the venue organiser, was fab - she helped us change our date (we had to postpone due to Covid) and answered all of our (many) questions ahead of the big day.

Leslie, the venue co-ordinator on the day, was amazing - she put a lot of care into ensuring everything went to plan and really made it a stress-free experience for us.

Would highly recommend!

The perfect venue for a small/medium wedding!

We got married at Orleans House gallery with 40 of our closest family and friends in September 2021 and it was the most perfect venue. Charlotte (venue organizer) and Leslie (wedding attendant) were both absolutely lovely and extremely helpful, exactly the kind of people you need for your big day! The venue is stunning both inside and out with impressive interior features and huge windows onto the beautiful gardens and woods. We couldn't recommend it more highly!

Just perfect

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鈥檛 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鈥檛 thank them enough! If you鈥檙e thinking of having your wedding here, you won鈥檛 be disappointed.

Fairy tale

From start to finish, this beautiful venue exceeded our expectations and made our special day absolutely magical. It was a fairy tale ceremony.
First and foremost, the organizers and staff at Orleans House Gallery are nothing short of amazing. They went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was perfect. Their attentiveness and professionalism were evident from the moment we inquired about the venue until the final moments of our celebration.
The venue itself is a masterpiece of beauty and elegance.
The way the natural light gracefully bathed the room through the large windows was nothing short of mesmerizing. Every inch of the space was exuding an atmosphere of timeless elegance and class. Our guests were utterly captivated by the venue's aesthetics.
The post-ceremony drinks and nibbles were held in the outdoor area. It allowed guests to enjoy the beautiful green area while savouring the moment.
We did not hire a wedding planner, but Orleans House Gallery provided a dedicated planner for us on the day of the event. She went to great lengths to ensure that everything ran smoothly and according to plan. Their attention to detail and ability to handle any last-minute requests or adjustments made our day stress-free and truly memorable.
If you're looking for a venue that exudes class, elegance, and charm while being supported by an outstanding team, Orleans House Gallery is the place to choose for your special day. We are forever grateful for the memories we created there :)
