Venue Features

Kensington Palace Wedding Reception Venue

The Orangery

It is perhaps the world’s most beautiful orangery. Built in 1704, Queen Anne originally intended to winter her orange trees here; instead it was frequently used
as a venue for lavish balls and celebrations. Popular year-round, this romantic venue’s palatial interior décor, Portland stone terrace and tranquil surroundings
make it one of London’s premier wedding venues.

Kensington Palace Wedding Reception Venue

Entrance Hall

Opening onto the lovely East Front Gardens, the Entrance Hall elegantly stretches into the palace, leading guests to four enchanting and distinctive spaces including Stone Hall, White Court, the Stone Staircase and the Vestibule. This versatile ‘hub’ at the heart of the palace is beautifully decorated, can accommodate a small band and offers a beautiful platform for  making speeches.

Kensington Palace Wedding Reception Venue

Cupola Room

This splendidly decorated room features a trompe l’oeil painted on the ceiling (creating the illusion of an elaborately gilded dome) as well as a curiously large centerpiece that tells time and plays music. A setting for countless royal nights of music, dancing and celebration, your guests will enjoy the Cupola Room’s wonderful views of the palace gardens and Orangery.

King’s Gallery

Masterpieces from the Royal Collection line the walls of this prestigious room. Perfectly suited for princely celebrations, it is the palace’s largest space. The grand windows allow you and your guests to survey the surrounding gardens, William III’s statue and the palace’s iconic golden gate.

King’s Drawing Room

Courtiers searching for power and patronage would have packed this wonderful room during royal parties hosted by the king. Fabulous artistry is evident in the paintings on display. And your guests will enjoy the fantastic vista of the avenues of Kensington Gardens, which converge outside the chamber’s central window.

Sunken Garden

This lovely, secluded English garden is ideal for drinks receptions. Family and friends can mingle on terraces among the exotic, vibrant flowers, which rotate throughout the year. Tulips and pansies bloom in spring; geraniums, cannas and begonias provide a riot of colour in summer.

Formal Gardens

Not to be missed are the formal gardens at Kensington Palace, which were returned to their former glory in 2012. Many Royals spent more time and money on the gardens, than on the building itself, and they are now a welcome oasis of calm in the spring and summer months when the full bounty of colours can be best admired.

Venue Hire from £18000
Capacity of up to 700 guests

We had a beautiful relaxed reception at Kensington Palace Orangery. We started the day with a walk around Kensington gardens, down to the serpentine and back to the Orangery Lawns. We arranged a guide to point out lots of historic points along the way...

The light that filled the venue played the perfect host to the beautifully intimate nuptials at one of London's most iconic venues.

We had a beautiful wedding last Autumn. It was a really special day, with the ceremony at St Mary Abbot’s Church in Kensington, followed by a swift walk through Kensington High Street, on to The Orangery at Kensington Palace.
