    Fulham Palace was perfect! Rebecca and Stuart's wedding day was the happiest day of the year and the venue was so beautifully prepared for us all. The staff couldn't have been better or made us feel more special. Their attention to detail, and their willingness to adjust those details, made organising the wedding reception feel like a real pleasure.

    We were confident that we were in safe hands at all times. The house and garden was spectacular, but on a very human scale ,and our guests were enchanted. The pre-dinner cocktails and canapes, the wedding banquet itself, and the post-ceilidh food was all amazing and of the best quality and presentation. Thank you Fulham Palace team, and thank you Bovingdons, for giving us all the best day ever!

    Fulham Palace was the perfect venue for our wedding in September. We fell in love with FP from the moment we saw it. We used the private chapel onsite to have a wedding blessing after our Civil Ceremony, it made it extra special.

    The staff - especially Holly, ChiChi and James were all amazing at answering questions pre-wedding but most importantly ensuring our day ran smoothly. The catering was 10/10 and and all of our guests commented on how delicious it was. | can’t recommend FP enough- the courtyard, gardens, private chapel are only a few things that make this place so perfect.

  • Rebecca and Chris

    Fulham palace was the most perfect venue for our wedding. We had guests from all around the world and they enjoyed every minute. The unique features of the palace meant our guests were wowed! The day felt relaxed and that meant we all had so much fun!

    FP had little touches to make us feel special and the gardens were the most perfect setting for our photos. We cannot thank them enough!

  • Harriet and Fred

    Fulham Palace hosted the reception for our wedding in October. It provided the most wonderful setting, and as the weather was perfect we made full use of the beautiful grounds. The catering was excellent. The waiting staff were attentive and efficient and the food was delicious. We were looked after very well.

    Everything was set up exactly as we had asked and we were delighted with how smoothly it ran. They dealt with our external suppliers very well too which ensured our deliveries and collections all worked very well and made it very easy for us! We couldn't recommend Fulham Palace more highly.

  • Caitlin and Ciaran

    We had our wedding here this year in October. The team were absolutely fantastic in the preparations- we felt in very safe hands. Emails were answered in record speed, even when the questions ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous. Charlotte was brilliant in using her knowledge of weddings and the venue to guide timings and logistics, but also open to any requests we had. The food was really very good quality (to point where guests commented!) and the venue was flexible in terms of alcohol suppliers but there account was great for us for the bar and additional wine!

    The food tasting was a highlight! And again Charlotte was happy to give her opinion when asked but struck the balance of guiding, helping but letting us make decisions- we never felt pressured or rushed. They have a list of recommended suppliers for everything else but you never feel under pressure to use them - we had our own alcohol supplier, ceilidh band and florist, but did use Phillipa who is a recommended photographer (and amazing!!)

    The final preparations couldn't have been easier- you drop everything off you need to and let the team know and they do all the rest! On the day itself the team made sure everything ran smoothly- lots of staff to serve drinks and food, drinks topped up,all the little things. Even flexible when we changed when we were doing the speeches last minute!

    Our guests commented on how lovely and unique the venue itself is- amazing to get the whole palace, and that it has a history of its own. Very special!! Especially to be in London but to feel quiet and have that much space. Would highly recommend!

    As the Mother of the Bride I have to say that Kate and Harry's wedding in June was a perfect day. The venue is spectacular and offers so many options when it comes to the use of the space. Tudor Courtyard, Great Hall, Marquee and assorted other drawing rooms. It means you can create a very personal experience. The food was fabulous and the team, Charlotte and Holly, helped us coordinate the event and recommended some wonderful suppliers. Such a great day that we will be back in July 2019 for my son's special day!
