Syon Park Wedding Venue is a stunning estate housing one of London's last great houses, Syon House. Syon Park Wedding Venue offers great variety in a relatively small area, from Gardens and Arboretum through to parkland and the unique tidal water ...meadows, creating a most magical setting for your special day and an oasis of beautiful backdrops to capture your most cherished moments.
We think we have the perfect place for a couple’s special day. We hope that you will able to visit and see the facilities on offer, and fall in love with “This delicious place.”
The formal and majestic Great Hall (120 guests) or State Dining Room (50 guests) for the commitment or reaffirmation ceremony.
Post-ceremony drinks in the private Inner Courtyard with parterres of white & cream scented flowers, the Colonnade overlooking the water meadows or the State Apartments (if inclement).
Wedding Receptions in the either magical Great Conservatory (for parties of 50 to 150 guests for a seated meal, or up to 200 for a standing buffet) – or the Garden Room Marquee in its own private walled garden overlooking the Thames (for larger parties of between 200 to 750 guests), celebrating the evening with sumptuous food, wine, dancing or entertainment.
The Duke’s Private Dining Room and Green Drawing Room (max 22 guests) as the perfect venue for smaller, more sedate weddings with an emphasis on fine dining.
Couples marrying elsewhere:
If you do not want to have a civil ceremony or civil partnership in Syon House, and are perhaps marrying in church or elsewhere – that’s fine too! You are welcome to use the Great Hall and Inner Courtyard for drinks and photographs on arrival from 15.00/ 16.00 hours, before moving over to the Great Conservatory at 17.00/ 18.00 hrs for dinner and dancing.
From May to September, demand for dates (especially for the afternoon offer) is usually so high that on Fridays and Saturdays, Syon Park offers Syon House and the Great Conservatory together from 3pm. It is not possible to hire the Great Conservatory alone during these prime months on a Friday or Saturday.
Summer Parties - Sundays to Thursdays:
The Great Conservatory can be hired for wedding receptions, engagement parties or other types of celebrations on any other evening during the week – Sundays to Thursdays, from April to mid-October. In fact, it is perfect for summer parties.
The venue has a relaxed atmosphere, adorned with exotic trees and flowers and there is full access to the gardens. Candles are permitted too. Guests are welcome to dance and enjoy amplified or live music, and the venue is available from 18.00 hours to midnight, with guests leaving by 01.00 hours. On some occasions too, it might be possible to begin your evening with drinks in Syon House for an hour or so too – do ask for details.
Jewish weddings at the Great Conservatory:
Syon Park is delighted to offer its Great Conservatory after 4pm for Jewish Weddings on Sunday and Monday evenings only during the season (April to October each year). Your Chuppah would either stand to the rear in the Pleasure Gardens, and next to the Serpentine River, or on the paths in the formal gardens in front of the Great Conservatory.
Alternatively the Cactus House may be in inclement weather. The Northumberland Room in Syon House can be used for a bedekin ceremony too, if required. Drinks would be served after the ceremony, and then you would move inside the Main Dome for dinner and dancing.
The engaged couple is entirely responsible for making all legal arrangements with their Rabbi, and any payment involved therein. We only allow approved caterers to work at Syon Park, because we want all our events to be as special as possible. We have several excellent kosher caterers on our approved list for you to choose from, and early access to kitchens can be arranged for shoma inspection too. If you prefer, you may of course, use one of the other approved caterers on our list, who do not specialise in kosher cuisine.
Marquees at Syon Park - Larger Wedding Receptions and Parties:
The Garden Room Marquee is the perfect setting for a larger wedding reception or special celebration for parties of between 200 and 800 guests. It is set within its own private and exclusive walled garden. Available for bookings from May to September each year, day and evening, it comes complete with a dance floor, PA system for speeches and music and both atmospheric lighting and disco lights. The venue is fully equipped to deliverall aspects of your event. The marquee benefits from its own private car park which can accommodate cars and coaches thus making the venue an easy option for guests who want to drive.
It can be hired on a venue only basis, also known as a “Dry Hire”, thus enabling you to design all the elements of your event yourself, or alternatively in conjunction with recommended caterers, create food and party design, we can help with all aspects of your event, enabling you to relax and enjoy it.
You may like to consider using Syon House for your wedding ceremony or drinks reception before guests make their way to the marquee through the secret walkway for the evening event. Whichever set up you decide on for your special day, we are on hand to help. read more
