Wedding Receptions

Your wedding will commence in our stunning Dan Pearson garden for the drinks and canape reception and an opportunity to experience a beautiful outdoor space against the backdrop of a Medieval church.  The dinner takes place in the Nave, the main museum  building, housed in the deconsecrated church of St Mary’s-at-Lambeth which can accommodate up to 60- 140 for a seated dinner and 180- 220 for a standing reception.

*The rates attached only include dry hire of the space and not staffing, furniture, production, flowers, cleaning and security for your event. We have an accredited list of caterers, florists and production that can assist with food, entertainment, photography and styling. We require that you use suppliers from our accredited list for your event at our venue.

We have an expert team on hand to guide you through all the particulars of hiring a heritage building. From the initial venue show round and the journey throughout, our team are able to advise on the best way to manage your event, ensuring that your guests have the best possible experience.
