Captivating guests on arrival with its dreamy fairy tale facade, Strawberry Hill House is a wedding venue that is located in the leafy outskirts of London.

Surrounded by 5 acres of beautifully manicured gardens, renaissance glass, vaulted and gilded ceilings, the venue exudes an atmosphere that is magnificent and enigmatic. It is therefore no surprise the pulchritudinous venue was recently awarded “London Romantic Wedding of the Year” and highly in demand.
Strawberry Hill House’s story begins in 1747, when Horcace Walpole discovered and purchased ‘Chopp’d Straw Hall’, one of the last remaining sites available on the banks of the Thames in voguish Twickenham. He set about transforming what was then a couple of cottages into his vision of a ‘little Gothic castle’ with pinnacles, battlements and a round tower - thus Strawberry Hill House was born. It was within the walls of Strawberry Hill House, Horace Walpole was inspired to what is widely regarded as the first ever Gothic novel. The building and Grade II five-acre garden has been restored, to the cost of ?10 million, to its original appearance using Eighteenth Century maps, paintings and Walpole’s own writing. It has since hosted a number of fabulous weddings.
Various rooms, along with the Cafe and lawns, are offered for a truly unique and memorable wedding, both of grand scale and a smaller more intimate party; The Gallery, Library, Great Parlour, Round Drawing Room and Great North Bedchamber.
The Gallery is a spacious and naturally lit room, an opulent setting featuring high vaulted ceilings, golden canopies and crimson damask, accommodating up to 100 seated dinner. The intimate Round Drawing Room, accommodating up to 40, features stunning painted glass and a gold frieze on the ceiling inspired by St. Paul’s cathedral. The expansive gardens “an open grove through which you see a field which is bounded by Serpentine wood of all kind of trees and flowering shrubs and flowers”, offer ample opportunities to capture photographs and moments to remember. Following your ceremony, enjoy a drinks reception on the lawn or in the Great Parlour, overlooking the garden. Continue to enjoy the House for drinks, dancing and merriment throughout the night.

Had our wedding ceremony in Strawberry Hill House. What an amazing & beautifully restored building. Drinks afterwards on the parched lawn, but just imagine it green! Must go back & spend time exploring the grounds.
Staff were very friendly, approachable & helpful as well as being very smart & professional. Events Manager made sure our event ran like clockwork and really looked after us.

Your fabulous team made the wedding such a memorable event. You handled everything with finesse and kindness, for which we are indeed thankful. The venue, the food and the ambience embodied perfection itself.
Fabulous venue, super location perfectly placed, I'm so pleased I found this little gem of a venue. Our wedding day was perfect, the caterers were fantastic and the food was amazing. Our wedding planner made the whole occasion so much more enjoyable by making the whole process seamless!
So full of character and elegance it makes for a perfect wedding venue. The day started a little wet and windy, but the sun streamed through the windows during the ceremony and showed off the colours of each room magnificently. The whole day was filled with laughter and love, a wonderful time was had by all.
