About Pembroke Lodge

Richmond Park, Richmond
Surrey, TW10 5HX

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. 

• Pembroke Lodge is the only wedding venue with a London Royal Park, Eleven acres of beautifully landscaped grounds • The Belvedere Terrace is licenced for outdoor weddings • Highly experienced banqueting team with two centuries of experience in this specialist field • First class food and service, about which thousands of compliments have been passed • The Belvedere, a custom-built banqueting suite, will accommodate up to 140 seated guests and up to 200 for the evening party • The Russell Suite provides elegant Georgian rooms accommodating up to 70 seated guests and up to 100 for the evening party

we really wish we could do a repeat
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Goold -Jess and Adam, on 18 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

Where do we begin with thanking Nelson and Jean for our big day in the Belvedere? It truly was the greatest day. It ran so smoothly from start to finish and so many people commented on this. The venue looked absolutely stunning and we felt so lucky to have been celebrating our marriage there. Jean, your communication In the run up to the day was slick and it meant that we felt really calm during preparations. Nelson, the day itself was flawless. You were so professional, calm and thorough. The food was exceptional too - many, many guests complimented this. Thank you so much again, we really wish we could do a repeat. Love and thanks

The greatest day of our lives!

We had heard stories from friends far and wide about how everybody's wedding day has some mishap or drama. Well at Pembroke Lodge, ours did NOT! The day ran flawlessly. People even commented on how smoothly the entire day and night went. Our Master of Ceremonies, Nelson, was exceptionally organised. He took care of every fine detail and made sure that nobody missed an event e.g. the cake cutting or first dance. Nelson gave us his number in the week's run up which meant that any little last minute worry, we would send a quick message and he would get back to us asap. Jean was excellent at responding to our emails throughout the year - whilst we planned the wedding in Singapore. The venue itself blew our mind on the day. Some people felt like they were abroad because of the colours and beautiful view. A few said it felt like it was special enough to be in London but you were so away from the hustle and bustle that it was idyllic. Transitions back and forth from the ceremony, to terrace and then into wedding breakfast, all ran perfectly and seamlessly. The evening, with the band, proved to be an amazing party in the Belvedere. With enough dancing but also still seating inside and out for those who wanted to chill out! Thank you so much Nelson, Jean and all of the catering and bar staff at Pembroke Lodge. Our day was perfect.

... truly special

At last, a sigh of relief for me and my wife! It`s now over - the wedding of my son , Andrew to Sophie, which took place at Pembroke Lodge, recently on the 15 June 2019. I want to say a Big `Thank You` to Jean for all your help in coordinating the sequence of events, before, on and during the wedding day. Everything went very well, that day; albeit there was a short delay and re-adjustment due to unexpected slight rainy spell, in the early afternoon. I cannot express how appreciative we are to you and to all the Team, for all the related activities that you all undertook, for us, thereby ensuring a smooth running of the day. Of note, my gratitude also goes to Laura, our Banqueting Manager, who did an excellent job, on the day, "Well Done, Laura".; and also my compliments to the Chef and the Kitchen Staff who cooked & produced a delicious meal, on the day. Once more, `Thank You`.

By Stephen Read, on 18 May 2019Date of Wedding - 12 May 2019

I wanted to write and thank Laura so much for all her hard work in overseeing our Celebration Lunch in the Russell Suite on Saturday. Both Sam and I thought you looked after everyone so beautifully - setting the tone and showing immense warmth and professionalism. You and your team are a great credit to Daniel and Pembroke Lodge. With very best wishes.

Venue Service

By Susan and Kevin, on 06 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 11 May 2019

We would like to thank all the staff at Pembroke Lodge who made our day so magical, especially the two of you - Jean, for ensuring all relevant information was dealt with in the lead up to the day and for making sure everything was perfect on the day itself. Byron, for the care and attention given on the day. My family couldn’t stop raving about the service you and your team provided. We recently found out a friend will also be holding her wedding with you guys and told her if they have Byron and Jean, they won’t have any worries on their day.
