The beautiful Eltham Palace offers couples the chance to hold their wedding in a stunning, 1930s, Art Deco setting. Once the home of a glamorous, millionaire couple; every aspect of Eltham oozes elegance and luxury. The circular, wood panelled Entrance Hall, with dramatic curved staircase and glass domed ceiling is a truly memorable ceremony venue.

The sophisticated Italian Drawing Room with marble fireplace and grand piano is perfect for intimate wedding breakfasts. If you're planning a more extravagant celebration, then the medieval Great Hall might be exactly what you're looking for. Able to hold up to 170 guests for live music and dancing and 200 for dining, this is a brilliant reception space.


Originally, this magnificent building was owned by Edward II and used as a royal residence for many centuries. The famous Tudor king, Henry VIII grew up here! In later years, Eltham Palace was the home of Virginia Courtauld and her husband, Stephen. This pair of millionaires lived glamorously within the walls of this magnificent building. Now, you can hold an equally luxurious wedding at Eltham.

  • Kate and David - 06/2015

    Thank you so so much for all of your hard work. You were an absolute dream to work with & we felt very lucky to have you there with us. You went above and beyond the call of duty, especially helping David arrange things the night prior to the wedding and re-wrapping his present for the best man! We had the most perfect day and are so grateful to you and the Eltham Palace team.

  • Faiza and Greg - 01/2015

    What a gem of a place, it was a perfect venue for our London based wedding. We loved the history, architecture and gardens and moat. Most of all, we made full use of the Great Hall and the art deco reception so we could host a wedding ceremony, reception and dinner and after dinner party in one amazing location. Our co-ordinator came with experience and advice that was invaluable and she worked with our caterers and florist and lighting people to deliver us a day that went without a hitch. She was prompt to answer emails and was always cheerful and calm and made us feel that way too.

  • Amandeep and Gurprit - 06/2016

    We would like to thank you for all your help, we really appreciated it. The whole day would not have been as successful and memorable if it was not for your brilliant organisational, helpful and artistic mind. All the staff at Eltham Palace made the
    day run so smoothly. All guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves and could not stop praising how amazing and nice the Palace was and how helpful all the staff were.
