Dulwich Picture Gallery 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! We can offer bespoke pricing for those smaller weddings of 30 or less. 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 their sparkle to. Or why not hire out our Meadow for a private daytime wedding? All money generated through venue hire goes towards the conservation and care of the Gallery and supports the development of the on-going education and exhibition programmes. Check out our Instagram DPGevents for more images and information.

Lovely venue and professional team
Imogen and the team were brilliant. They are very attentive, warm and professional. We had a civil partnership ceremony in the Linbury Room followed by some Prosecco in the cloisters and on the lawn despite it being November. It was beautiful and even though we weren’t in the gallery itself it still felt like a special setting.

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.

Magical and Unique
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.

Exclusive use of the grounds
The Gallery was so accommodating and well organised throughout our day. We loved that we could use the traditional gallery and gardens all to ourselves.
