Full Description
Dulwich Picture Gallery is London’s best kept secret. Founded in 1811, this hidden gem is the first purpose built public art gallery in the world and has been celebrating art for over 200 years. The building is an architectural masterpiece offering an intimate and unforgettable experience for weddings. We have multiple spaces for all of your different needs to please contact us for more details on smaller more intimate weddings as well as your big beautiful ones! The gallery rooms provide a grand and very opulent backdrop whilst the linbury Room and cafe space have much more of a modern vibe for those wanting something they can add they're sparkle to. Or why not hire out our Meadow for a private daytime wedding!?

dinner right next to Rembrandts, Gainsboroughs..
“How many places can you have dinner right next to Rembrandts, Gainsboroughs and Canaletto?! With my memories and the gallery being so stunning it seemed like a great place. The gallery works just as well for a winter wedding as a summer one, and we really liked the idea of the one long table in the gallery. Everyone – Nick and I and my parents – were unanimous that we’d get married there
