A London historic wedding venue fit for royalty
The Painted Hall can only be described as the Sistine Chapel of the UK and provides a one of a kind experiences for your guests to celebrate one of the happiest days of your life. From the moment you enter the Painted Hall, your guests will be in awe of the hand painted walls and ceiling.
Amidst the majesty of the Painted Hall, the bride or groom will make their way down the aisle, with all eyes on them through the centrepiece of Sir James Thornhill’s masterwork. Here a beautiful civil ceremony is conducted, lasting for around half an hour filling the hall with nothing but love and happiness.
Once you have said your “I do’s”, guests are invited to take advantage of the warm weather, with an al fresco drinks reception on our Queen Mary Colonnades. During the cooler months, guests will be welcomed to the Queen Mary Undercroft for the pre-dinner drinks. This is a great opportunity to take photographs capturing the enchaining backdrops of the Old Royal Naval College.
Guests will then be called for dinner back into the transformed Painted Hall fit for Royalty to dine in for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Here in the “finest dining hall in Europe”, your celebration will feel warm and intimate, even in such grand surroundings.
As the mood changes, your guests will appreciate a change in scenery, as they discover more of the Old Royal Naval College’s elegant spaces. Beyond the hall itself, there is a wealth of venue treasures to discover. The majestic vaulted Queen Mary Undercroft sits beneath the buildings, linked via a charming underground tunnel which we nick name ‘the tunnel of love’. Your guests can even try their hand at skittles in our refurbished Victorian Skittle Alley which can be hired separately. This setting showcases a different side of the Old Royal Naval College, a unique ambience, no less impressive. It also works perfectly as a calm space for any guest that wants a moment away from all the excitement.

The best venue in London!!
There is no other venue that can begin to compare to the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College!!Sent on 07/11/2019
The men arrived in style by boat which got some amazing photos!!!
I truly felt like a princess waking down the aisle in the Painted Hall it was everything I had ever dreamed of as a child.
We were lucky with weather and were able to have our drinks reception on the colonnades which was lovely!
Having the after party in the Undercroft meant that our guests were able to see a lot of the venue and history of the building!
My friends and family were blown away with the venue and the level of professionalism and friendliness of the team. They made every single person feel special!
I can not thank the team enough for making mine and my husband's day one we will never forget.
I can now say I got married in the Sistine Chapel of the UK!!!!
THANK YOU ORNC xxx
