Superb venue and staff
Venue Service

By Helen & Garth Shephard, on 10 Aug 2015

The venue is absolutely stunning. A beautiful room surrounded by lovely gardens on the banks of the Thames. The staff, and in particular Charlotte, were brilliant and we cannot thank them enough. Friendly, relaxed, helpful, organised and professional. They took away a big part of stress from us so we could enjoy the ceremony!

Just stunning!

Summer Wedding
Venue Service

By Lynsey McClenahan, on 24 Jul 2015

Great day and venue for our wedding and fantastic help from Charlotte and Jayne. The Octagon Room is perfect for a small intimate wedding service and the location and gardens were beautiful in the summer. It was also a perfect location for us to continue with our boat trip on the Thames. Many thanks to Orleans House Gallery.

Beautiful venue, lovely staff

This is a simple, fantastic venue in a lovely setting by the River Thames. The Octagon room is beautiful and needs next to no decoration. Outside the venue the gardens are also lovely. The wedding staff were brilliantly organised, thoughtful and ensured the event went without a hitch. A really memorable and magical day.

A dream come true
Venue Service

By Martina Callender, on 15 Oct 2014

PERFECT wedding venue. We felt privileged to marry in such a special place, it was more magical than we could ever have hoped or dreamed. A beautiful and elegant space, uniquely intimate, which has given us stunning wedding photos. The team were amazing. Helpful and thorough in the planning. On the day, calm, collected and professional, ensuring that everything ran so smoothly. From the moment we each arrived, bursting with excited happiness and perhaps a few nerves, we were put completely at ease and knew we were in good hands, meaning we could enjoy our ceremony feeling completely relaxed and confident that everything would be wonderful and all we needed to think about were the vows we were making to each other. Our heartfelt thanks for making the best day of our lives so completely perfect.

Perfect intimate riverside venue
Venue Service

By Matt & Chantal, on 30 Sep 2014

We married in the Octagon Room, Orleans House Gallery on the 29th August 2014 which proved the most idyllic of settings – riverside location, glorious grounds, grandeur, historical significance and the most supportive of Events Coordination Teams you could wish for. Throughout the entire process, from our first phone call to the day of our ceremony, Orleans House Gallery delivered with absolute professionalism.

1st March 2014 Wedding at Orlean's House Gallery
Venue Service

By Lindsey & Milo Gaster, on 13 May 2014

A big Thank you to Ayomi and her team for our wonderful beautiful wedding sat at Orleans’s House Gallery on Saturday 1st March 2014. The venue itself is just so lovely, we felt under no pressure at all on the big day nor the lead up to it. The weather was slightly cold but beautifully sunny so we had drinks and nibbles on the patio as well as having full use of the Octagon Room. I would really recommend the venue for those looking for something a bit more special. All of our Guests who are Twickenham based couldn’t believe they had overlooked such a lovely venue. Thanks Again Lindsey and Milo Gaster

A truly amazing day at a beautiful, intimate and relaxed venue. We would highly recommend orleans house due to the stunning setting and personal touches from everyone who helped us at the gallery. The help from Lesley our wedding attendant was invaluable in calming on the day nerves!

Our perfect venue!

By Laura Saunders, on 07 Sep 2013

We wanted a small, intimate, pretty and family-oriented wedding and OHG definitely delivered! The team were really helpful and supportive, and the Octagon Room so ornate, we only needed some country garden flowers. A gorgeous venue that we highly recommend!

Wonderful location
Venue Service

By Hannah, on 16 Jul 2013

The grounds and the Octagon room are a beautiful setting to get married in. Our guests loved the location and the fact it is tucked away by the river. Leslie and Ayomi were fantastic, positive and helpful before and during the wedding. A magical place I can't wait to visit again.

Classic beautiful setting for a ceremony
Venue Service

By Claire and Andrw Morris, on 03 Jun 2013

Orleans House Gallery is an amazing venue if you are looking for something with the wow factor. It has kept its traditional features which look fantastic in photographs. A harpist is a wonderful addition to complement the classical features. The staff at Orleans are professional and so helpful. On the day Leslie was there to assist and she was great! Everything ran smoothly before and on the day!
