Exclusively Yours

At Eltham Palace, an ancient bridge crosses the moat and leads to a turning circle in front of the double doors opening into the Art Deco mansion.

Three long tables adorned with spectaular flower displays set up for a large wedding in Eltham Palace Great HallEntrance Hall

This circular wood-panelled room, exquisitely picked out in shades of coffee and cream, is where many couples choose to marry. Like a Hollywood star, brides can make an entrance down one of a pair of curved staircases before the couple exchange vows beneath a glass dome.

Family and friends can surround you during the ceremony and afterwards, French doors lead directly to the terrace beyond, where drinks may be served in fine weather, overlooking the flower gardens.

Italian Drawing Room

In burnt orange, ochre and blues, this room – which has its own grand piano – can be used with the Entrance Hall and adjoining Dining Room for drinks receptions. It too has a door out to the terrace.

Dining Room

Striking in dramatic black, pink and silver this is one of the ‘signature’ Art Deco rooms of the house. Its black lacquer doors with animals depicted in silver make a stunning frame for photographs.

Great Hall

Separated from the main house only by a sliding Chinese lacquer screen the contrast between Art Deco and medieval is stunning. The hall may be used for larger ceremonies, but more usually hosts dining and dancing – it looks wonderful with enhanced lighting. A minstrels’ gallery may be used for live music performances. The room opens directly onto lawns, which wedding parties can use in fine weather.


Al fresco drinks may also be served after your ceremony on the wisteria covered terrace, just a step away from the mansion’s domed Entrance Hall.

Eltham Palace also boasts a series of rooms with original features, including Virginia Courtauld’s boudoir, bedroom and gold mosaic bathroom, which may be used by couples hiring Eltham Palace for photography.

I would like to take the opportunity to thank you personally for all your efforts, co-ordinating on our behalf with both English Heritage and the suppliers. You have been approachable and accommodating at all times and no ask was too big. Saturday was amazing for all our guests whose only complaint seems to be that it was over too soon. We will always remember this day as fondly as the day we married.

I am writing to thank you for providing the perfect venue for my son's wedding on Friday. All of our guests commented on the beauty of the site and I'm sure many will return as visitors. The whole day was expertly planned and the staff at Eltham Palace couldn't have been more helpful, efficient and courteous. Thank you so much for your contribution to a perfect day - even the weather was kind to us!
