About Pembroke Lodge, Richmond Park

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

nothing was too much trouble
Venue Service

By Eddie & Barbara, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2019

Cannot thank Pembroke Lodge enough for making our wedding day so special. Laura managed the day perfectly with great professionalism, efficiency and friendliness. We received many compliments from our guests about Laura, she really is a great asset to Pembroke Lodge. The wedding breakfast was delicious and very well presented, served quickly by very good waiting staff all of whom couldn't do enough for us and nothing was too much trouble. Our photographer claimed it was the best wedding venue he had been to - he's been in the business many years. The back room staff such as Diana were equally efficient, friendly and helpful. Wouldn't hesitate in awarding this place 5 stars - thank you Pembroke Lodge, you are a star x 5.

we genuinely couldn't have asked for a better day!

On behalf of my husband and myself, we would like to thank Jean and all the staff at Pembroke lodge for making our wedding the most wonderful day. We want to particularly thank Byron who went above and beyond to ensure all the guests felt special and the day ran smoothly. He was absolutely amazing and fitted in like one of the family and it was lovely to have him around on the day. Thank you again for a wonderful time, for the great food and spectacular service we loved every moment of it and wish it could have gone on forever.

an outstanding job and we were so thrilled
Venue Service

By Jonathan & Lindsey, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2019

We had a really wonderful day with you in July for our wedding, as did our guests, many of them commenting so effusively about the venue, the staff and the service there. Can Lindsey and I add our grateful thanks too to you all. You all did such an outstanding job and we were so thrilled with everything there. It really could not have been better. Our huge thanks to Laura especially too, she does a brilliant job for you there. Kelvin as a welcomer downstairs also came in for a special mention by many. Many thanks to you all once again. Best regards,

always making us feel welcome and special
Venue Service

By Jess and Matt, on 26 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2019

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding such a wonderful experience! Byron was fantastic – our guests are still mentioning how great he was on the night. He put my parents (and us!) at ease during the tasting and clearly knew what he was talking about on both the food (gently guiding us away from lamb shank in mid-July!) and wine. On the night he was the perfect balance of professional and personal and took care of everything meaning we could completely relax and enjoy the night. Our thanks also to the full team – especially Jean in the run up and all the preparations and even Kelvin for always making us feel welcome and special when we were visiting, as well as all the staff on the night who did a great job. We were recommended to Pembroke Lodge by a colleague and would absolutely continue to recommend it as the best wedding venue in London Jess & Matt (27 July Belvedere)

our guests loved it and had so much fun
Venue Service

By Sylvie & Tom Lawson, on 28 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Aug 2019

We just want to say a massive thank you to all the staff at Pembroke Lodge for organising our wedding! We absolutely loved our day. Even though it was raining and dull outside and we couldn't enjoy the gardens and patio, it was still so beautiful and we would very happily do it all over again! All our guests loved it and had so much fun too and have all said how good the food was as well! A special thank you to Nelson for being amazing on the day itself being patient and generally so helpful! To Emma for organising the day and replying to my emails where I asked 100s of questions! Also thank you Jean for showing us around the venue in the first place! We hope to come back soon when the weather is good to soak up the area properly!

Pembroke Lodge really is a fantastic venue
Venue Service

By Lauren and Nick, on 13 Sep 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Aug 2019

A massive THANK YOU to Jean and Byron for a fantastic wedding in the Belvedere at Pembroke Lodge on 10 August 2019. We both had the most amazing day and evening and really wish we could just do it all over again! We knew from the moment we visited Pembroke Lodge (only the second venue we looked at) that it would be perfect for us and we didn't look any further. From our initial meeting right up until the last dance you were all excellent - friendly, professional and nothing was ever too much trouble. On the day everything ran perfectly and we had so many compliments about what a fantastic wedding it was and how beautiful the venue was and also about the great food so thank you for making all of that happen. All of our suppliers - many recommended by yourselves were also excellent. Pembroke Lodge really is a fantastic venue with a fantastic team and we wouldn't have changed anything. I have attached a few unofficial photos - still awaiting the official ones! Thank you again for a truly fantastic wedding and we will be back to visit the lodge in the future for some tea and cake!

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!
Venue Service

By Jessica and Adam, on 04 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2019

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
Venue Service

By Natasha and Kevin, on 18 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Jul 2019

You were always kind and patient and went above and beyond to be of service to us. Byron, thank you so much for helping Kevin with his knee on the day! he is still recovering but we'll get there. On behalf of us both - lots of love and many thanks.
