About

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, this site has 11 acres of landscaped grounds, stunning views, and over 50 years of experience in hosting wonderful weddings.

Facilities and Capacity

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. You also have the option to marry outside on the Belvedere Terrace. 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 that is protected by an Act of Parliament, what better backdrop for your pictures?

Services Offered

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.

    A Fantastic Day

    Pembroke was the first venue we visited, and ended up being the only venue appointment we kept!! We were absolutely sold, and it was extra special since we got engaged in Richmond Park as well.

    We chose the Belvedere Room for the amount of guests we wanted to invite, and it honestly takes so so little to dress the room up. We chose some cherry blossom trees as our arch (rented from a vendor recommended by the venue), rented some prettier chairs, and ta dah! A beautiful room, easy as.

    Once planning the nitty gritty of the day started, our coordinator, Nelson, was On It. He helped soothe any worries, and was ready to talk through any questions we had, as well as make his own recommendations based on his own experience.

    There was some question when COVID restrictions were lifting/lowering/lifting, but I don't think any other venue would have acted any differently.

    Fantastic day and so supportive

    We loved our wedding at Pembroke Lodge. We had to hugely adapt the day due to the pandemic but it was still perfect.
    The staff are so friendly, the food was delicious (plus there is so much choice) and the Belvedere room is a perfect setting with the incredible views over the park looked beautiful.
    We really appreciated all the support in planning, and replanning, and the flexibility they offered us so that we could have our small wedding of 15. We've been offered a second date for a larger party, we’re so excited to be going back next summer for our bigger party to continue the celebrations!
    We couldn't recommend Pembroke Lodge more as the dream wedding venue.

    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.

    Highly recommended!

    We could not have found a more perfect venue for our wedding than Pembroke Lodge. The surroundings are amazing and the venue is beautiful. The staff are friendly, helpful and professional. They helped us a lot during the preparations and they were instrumental on the day. The food and drinks were all top quality. Thank you for helping to make our day so special and memorable!

    Wedding April 2022

    Pembroke lodge is a beautiful venue for a wedding. It has amazing views from the veranda with good space and indoors has an intimate feel whereas some venues can feel over large.
    You are in very good hands with Nelson and the team who are very experienced at delivering good quality events and they are responsive on email. I would recommend keeping your own checklist and ensuring that you have questions/prompts for them on occasion as their focus is on the fundamentals of a good event and its up to you to ensure that you clarify/ask about the smaller details to ensure you are comfortable e.g room layout, printing etc.
    Food was excellent.

    Beautiful Venue and Amazing Staff

    My husband and I got married at Pembroke Lodge on 16/04/2022 - Russell Suite. We didn’t plan to have a proper wedding from the beginning, so we were a bit last minute when finding the venue. However, the event manager Nelson was very professional and scheduled a meeting with us very soon to confirm everything for our wedding day. He was very supportive and attention to details on the our big day, we could just enjoy our time without worrying about anything.

    Our guests kept telling us they had a lovely time and they loved the venue! It was a very sunny day so everything worked out so well!

    Highly recommend Pembroke Lodge. Nelson, Kelvin and people who helped us on our big day were amazing! :)

    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.

    Laura and Ryan

    Our wedding at Pembroke Lodge was absolutely perfect! The venue is stunning. Went so smoothly as every single member of staff were amazing. The food was just incredible, so many compliments from all of our guests. Someone always at the end of the phone or quick responses with emails to answer any questions/queries I had. Couldn’t have wished for a better wedding day and that is down to everyone at Pembroke Lodge making sure it went perfectly!

    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
