Dulwich Picture Gallery is a stunning wedding venue in South East London. Perfect for your unique weddings both big and small!

With central London just moments away, this is an ideal space for a private celebration with all the merits of a fantastic city stay yet as you wander the grounds you’ll feel a million miles from the city.

The three-acre garden is a stand-out feature where your wedding photographer will find plenty of inspiring backdrops for those magnetic portraits. Wandering amongst the English oaks and Mulberry trees, you can soak in the iconic architecture of your would-be wedding venue.

As a licenced wedding venue, we offer a number of flexible spaces for your civil ceremony, drinks reception, wedding breakfast and dancing.

With a seated dinner in the Soane Gallery, you will enjoy one long table running down the length of this beautiful room, surrounded by our collection of Old Master paintings.

Alternatively, you can enjoy your Wedding Breakfast in the Gallery Café, offering views of the beautiful Gallery gardens and Sir John Soanes architectural masterpiece.

Both options are followed by an evening of music and dancing in the Linbury Room.

From a grand, large scale affair to an intimate ceremony followed by drinks, the team are happy to accommodate your wishes and create a service tailored specifically to you, ensuring the highest standards of planning.

Our extensive list of approved suppliers can provide everything from catering and floristry to lighting and entertainment (Ask us for more details!).

Magical & Unique Venue

We did our mini-wedding at Dulwich Picture Gallery which was so magical. We hired the Linbury room which was perfect for our 28 guests. It comes as a complete blank canvas so you need to add decor but these means you can make it your own. We had the reception on the lawn on a beautiful sunny autumnal day which was gorgeous. Then, to add the wow factor we invited our guests in to look around the gallery (arranged by DPG) which they all loved. Would definitely recommend this venue if you want something special and unique.

Wonderful wedding at Dulwich Picture Gallery

My husband and I recently got married at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, and it really was a truly wonderful day! Imogen at the Gallery was so kind, helpful and quick to respond to any queries we had in the run up, and was always on hand to offer advice or assistance which really helped keep our pre-wedding stress levels in check, she really is brilliant!

We got married in the Linbury Room and had the wedding breakfast in the cafe, and both rooms felt light, modern and were able to be decorated just as we wanted them.

The venue itself is beautiful, and we were so lucky that the sun came out on the day so that we could make the most of the lovely grounds for an outside drinks reception. Many of our guests commented on what a beautiful and unusual venue it was, and being a Gallery (with outside space!) in London felt very special. We couldn't have imagined a more perfect place for us to get married.

We were very happy with DPG as a venue

We hired the Linbury Room. With 30 guests, the room appeared very spacious. We had a bar service at the back of the room for guests to mingle while waiting for the service to begin. Having an air conditioning in the room made it comfortable in the hot weather. With reception on the lawn, DPG was a good venue.
