Weddings at Eltham Palace

Think of Hollywood, ocean liners and sleek 1930s fashion, then imagine your wedding day taking on the same nostalgic style and sophistication. If you yearn for the glamour of the 1930s, then Eltham Palace will be your ideal wedding day location.

With elegant Art Deco rooms and a stunning medieval Great Hall, Eltham Palace will lift your special day into a truly unique and unforgettable occasion.

Entrance Hall

Inside this circular wood panelled room, exquisitely picked out in shades of coffee and cream, is where many couples choose to toast their new marriage. Like Hollywood stars, the newlywed couple can make their way down the curved staircase after they have exchanged their vows. Family and friends can surround you to celebrate this special moment beneath a glass dome. Afterwards, French doors then lead directly to the terrace beyond, where drinks may be served in fine weather overlooking the flower gardens.

Drinks: 100 people (200 if using adjacent room)

The Great Hall

Separated from the main house only by a sliding Chinese lacquer screen, the contrast between Art Deco and Medieval is stunning. The Great Hall may be used for larger ceremonies, but is perfect for hosting wedding breakfasts, banquets, and dancing. The hall boasts of a stunning hammer beam roof and underfloor heating, and it looks wonderful with enhanced lighting and a minstrels’ gallery may be used for live music performances. The room also opens directly onto lawns, which wedding parties can use in fine weather.
