Kew Gardens is arguably one of the most iconic outdoor wedding venues in South West London. Its astounding history as a botanical research and educational institution has gained international acclaim, with 50,000 living plants growing within its World Heritage Site. Kew Gardens weddings are even able to take place in the Temperate House, the oldest Victorian glasshouse in the world. This spellbinding conservatory contains an emporium of exotic plants, ponds and rare species of flora. Kew’s manicured gardens, significant history and touch of royalty makes it hard not to fall in love with.
Kew Gardens weddings are organised within several tiered in-house packages, which allow you to hire more than one space within your desired time frame, with a selected caterer from their supplier list. With several function spaces speckled across the site, such as the airy Nash Conservatory, the elegant Orangery or the striking Princess of Wales Conservatory, your guests will be transported through Kew Gardens on a one of a kind botanical adventure. All of the wedding spaces are open-plan, boasting high ceilings with grand arched windows allowing for a constant stream of natural light, which is sought after by London’s best photographers.
The possibilities are endless at Kew Gardens, and it lends itself well to host Asian wedding celebrations given the larger capacity of some of the reception spaces. However, if you are seeking something more intimate within the grounds of Kew Gardens, the former royal residence of the Duke of Cambridge, ‘Cambridge Cottage’, might be what you’ve been looking for. This quaint residence accommodates up to 80 guests for a seated meal, and it is possible to host your ceremony outside, facing its picturesque French windows. Kew Gardens has an impressive variety of venues to host the botanical London wedding you've always dreamed of.
