Situated on the highest point of Richmond Park, London, is the beautiful grade II listed Pembroke Lodge, one of the city’s most popular wedding venues. With 11 acres of landscaped grounds, stunning views and over 50 years’ experience in hosting wonderful weddings, it’s easy to see why.

Pembroke Lodge makes the rather impressive claim of being the only wedding venue situated within a London Royal Park. Richmond Park is the largest Royal Park and the tranquil space is home to around 650 deer; as you wander the park you’ll feel a million miles from the bustling and vibrant city nearby.

The Lodge itself boasts an impressive frontage, sure to impress guests as soon as they arrive, as well as a light and airy interior. Licensed for civil ceremonies, you can say your vows in The Belvedere, a light filled and neutral space that lends itself perfectly to any colour scheme or style. The space can accommodate up to 140 guests for your ceremony.

The Russell suite is also licensed for civil ceremonies and is the ideal choice for smaller weddings of up to 70 guests. The room features large period style windows, classic portraits and a stunning marble fireplace.

New for Spring 2019, you now have the option to marry outside on the Belvedere Terrace when you choose The Belvedere to host your day. Looking out onto acres of spectacular grounds, this is a truly romantic spot to say ‘I do’.

The terrace is also the ideal place to pop a cork and begin celebrating your marriage, with an elegant drinks reception. As guests mingle and enjoy the views you can slip away to capture some photographs within the park.

Your photographs are your lasting memory of the wedding and therefore form an important part of your day. The view from King Henry’s mound within the gardens, is the only view in London which is protected by an Act of Parliament, what better backdrop for your pictures?

Following on from your drinks reception, you can head back inside to your chosen suite and enjoy a wedding breakfast of your choosing, freshly prepared on-site by Pembroke Lodge’s talented team of chefs. Finally, you can dance the night away or enjoy a laidback evening reception, the choice is completely yours.

The highly experienced wedding team at Pembroke Lodge will assist you in the planning of your special day, from your first enquiry right through to the departure of the very last guest. From a grand, large scale affair to an intimate ceremony followed by drinks, the team are happy to accommodate your wishes.

    Smashing team

    I never dreamt I’d be able to get married in beautiful Richmond Park. At the very least, I never guessed it would be anywhere near my price range. But, take a look and ask about their winter package. I don’t underestimate our luck last year. We got married on 4th January... the more unusual date gave us a lot more in our package and the team, especially Sonia, were brilliant throughout. I have the most treasured memories of our wedding day and at the heart of it was this fantastic and beautiful venue.

    Our dream wedding come true

    We had our wedding here in September and it was perfect.

    We can't fault the exceptional service provided by the wedding team. They made us feel relaxed and comfortable throughout the whole day.

    We had a complicated food menu for our guests and the kitchen delivered without any hitches.

    All in all, we highly recommend Pembroke Lodge if you're considering for your wedding venue.

    Simply beautiful

    We always wanted Pembroke Lodge to be our wedding venue. We have been in love with Richmond park for over 20 years, such a magnificent location. However from our first telephone call and introduction with Jean we knew it was meant to be and we were ready to book our perfect venue in our favourite location. From the start of our relationship with Pembroke Lodge staff, Jean, Nelson, Laura have been the most professional and friendly people we have had the pleasure of communicating and working with, so much so we have adopted Jean (Smile) as our auntie  and Laura we would class as a great friend. Throughout the pandemic changes, postponing change of plans, keeping up with latest guidance nothing changed in regards to the professionalserviceand excellent customer service we received. We were treated like royalty, nothing was too big or small. The team guided us and communicated all along and never once made us question our decisions. We could go on and on about our fantastic experience with all the staff at Pembroke, Wedding team, waiters and waitresses  and of course the chefs leading up to on on the day wedding, our family and friends had so many positive comments about all the staff and how much they were professional and how hard they worked. We know that Pembroke Lodge and its staff we always hold a special place in our hearts. No regrets at all about choosing the beautiful paradise as our wedding venue.

    Amazing location - great value for money!

    We had the most amazing possible experience getting married in the Russell Suite at Pembroke Lodge. Not only was it a beautiful autumn day, with the rooms all looking gorgeous with the autumn leaves outside, but we couldn’t have been more pleased with the staff. Laura was excellent in the lead up, Graham our banqueting manager was so helpful and accommodating on the day, and Kelvin the doorman charmed absolutely everybody, and went above and beyond to make it the best possible day. We’ve already had so many of our guests feed back about how lovely the staff were.
    We cannot recommend Pembroke Lodge highly enough. Absolutely superb service on what was without doubt the happiest day of our lives!

    October wedding in Belvedere

    We had the most amazing wedding at Pembroke Lodge. This was due to months of careful planning with the Team and our banqueting manager, Nelson left no stone unturned on the day. The weather was fantastic making it feel like a late summer wedding. All our guests had a lovely day, loved the food and appreciated the beautiful scenery. We could not have had a better day and I would thoroughly recommend the Belvedere.

    Beautiful Wedding Ceremony Venue

    Myself & new hubby decided to have our civil wedding ceremony here at Pembroke Lodge - The Russell Suite and it did not disappoint. The venue is absolutely stunning itself with beautiful gardens for couple & family photographs. The staff at Pembroke Lodge ensured the day went as smoothly as could be. They were all so supportive, friendly and accommodating. We both felt at ease and the incredible staff who were involved were just as amazing.

    We both are so honoured to have had our special day at Pembroke Lodge, not just because of its beauty but also the invaluable staff.

    A great experience - thank you

    We had a wonderful experience at Pembroke Lodge for our small autumnal wedding. It was truly such a special day and we are so grateful for all the help and support the PL team gave us both before the day and on the day itself. Special thanks to Nelson who did an amazing job and put up with my constant pre-wedding queries and really helped keep us relaxed and informed especially with all the changes that had to occur.
    We had to make some drastic changes to the numbers at our wedding due to Covid restrictions but the team were very informative, flexible and helpful regarding the different options we had.
    Our whole family had such an amazing time and we all remember it as such a happy day, despite being much smaller than originally planned! We would definitely recommend Pembroke Lodge to others.

    memories which will last a lifetime.

    James and I wanted to take a moment to thank Jean, Nelson and their team for their personal contributions to our wedding day on Saturday 21st March.

    It was touch and go as to whether we would make it but with the help of all of you, we did. Despite the stress of last week, James and I had the most amazing day and we have so many fond memories which will last a lifetime.

    You played a part in making that happen, despite the adverse times and we whole heartedly appreciate it.

    We know that with you working within the wedding & entertainment industries, you're going to be some of the worst hit over the next couple of months. We hope that this all blows over quickly and we wish you all the best - we will be thinking of you!

    Some of our photographs perfectly capture the pure joy and relief as we walked back up the aisle as husband and wife - every single one of you contributed to that moment, so sincerely thank you!!

    Lots of love x

    Beautiful venue and the most amazing team

    Thank you SO much Laura for everything that you did for us from our first meeting to the wedding day, we could not have asked for anything better. Simon and I were both anxious as our guests were from two very different cultures and backgrounds and you did all you could to help us bring our families together on such a happy day.

    I cannot quite believe how well the day was planned and executed by you and your team from the moment I drove in to the park. On arrival at the Lodge, I was met by you and I immediately felt at ease, there are so many things I can personally thank you for but I do not know where to start.

    All our guests were in awe of the Lodge in its entirety. PL is a stunning venue with an amazing setting but I have to say it’s you and your team that made our special day what it was and we are so grateful. The combination of a perfectly beautiful venue and the most amazing team really made my dream come true.

    Laura, you were amazing on the day, thank you for being the best MC and wedding manager, we are constantly chatting about the wedding and how wonderful everything was at PL. Thanks to you and the entire PL team, we had an incredible wedding which we are absolutely delighted with, fingers crossed we can come back again but as wedding guests next time!

    ... an absolutely amazing wedding day.

    Nick and I wanted to say a HUGE thank you to Jean and Nelson and all the Pembroke Lodge staff for an absolutely amazing wedding day at Pembroke Lodge!

    We have had so many of our guests commenting on how lovely the venue and food was. My Grandpa, who is quite fussy about food, even said he was going to thank the chef because the quality of the food was so great!

    Everything went so smoothly during the room changeover, the timings and everything.

    We had SO much fun and now have so many happy memories tied to Pembroke Lodge now, including our engagement there last year!

    Wishing you all the very best,

    the day could not have been more perfect

    Just a note to say thank you all so very much for all that you did on Saturday to give us a perfect day. Everything went really well and we enjoyed it so much.

    All our guests commented on how delicious the food was, how stunning the venue is, and the day could not have been more perfect. Thank you so much to all your amazing staff too.

    No doubt we will see you all again as Pembroke Lodge is our favourite place to come for tea and cake!

    Thanks again, you were all fantastic.
